Here\'s some more food for thought on Reagan:

http://www.zmag.org/content/showarticle.cfm?SectionID=54&ItemID=5683

[glb]If you\'re short on time, read the link below that I just added.  It\'s a case example of U.S. policy towards El Salvador under Reagan:  [/glb]

http://free.freespeech.org/americanstateterrorism/centralamerica/ElSalvador.html

Here\'s an excerpt:

"According to Rev. Santiago, macabre scenes of this kind aren't uncommon.

\'People are not just killed by death squads in El Salvador -- they are decapitated and then their heads are placed on pikes and used to dot the landscape. Men are not just disemboweled by the Salvadoran Treasury Police; their severed genitalia are stuffed into their mouths. Salvadoran women are not just raped by the National Guard; their wombs are cut from their bodies and used to cover their faces. It is not enough to kill children; they are dragged over barbed wire until the flesh falls from their bones, while parents are forced to watch.\'

Rev. Santiago goes on to point out that violence of this sort greatly increased when the Church began forming peasant associations and self-help groups in an attempt to organize the poor."

thank you for that.   :-*


sadly, it\'s no surprise to me - early childhood early 60\'s Brasil taught me loads about people disappearing, torture, etc. - the horrifying experiences of one of my parents\' closest friends gives a whole different meaning to the phrase "wired pussy" you see in porn spam subject lines.  her husband\'s lot was worse.  US gov\'t supported the military in Brasil because Goulart was seen as too left wing.

grrrrrr

i doubt anyone gives a shit that ronald died.....especially the ones that suffered in the 80\'s becuase of that fuck.....well..your too young to understand chris....

gkg

that\'s the reason for the links to real data - if we don\'t educate, they\'re doomed to emulate.  our outrage at this farce doesn\'t help them if we don\'t explain why we\'re outraged.

each generation has the opportunity to evolve or devolve - their choices are shaped by the voices they hear from those who\'ve passed this way before them.

Machete, we do try not to call people names on this forum.  If one feels compelled to call someone a name the least one can do is spell it correctly.

I think however, if you read any of the links attached, or try searching out something besides mainstream pablum fobbed off as news you will see that a great number of people either couldn\'t give a shit or are pleased he\'s gone.  Many feel that rather than a sense of loss there is a sense of pleasure that if one believes in God, Ronny now has some s\'plainin\' to do.
Peace.

no reason not to write what you want Chris, none at all.  differing opinions are good to hear and healthy to explore, it\'s how we learn.

oh, and his name is Tom Brokaw.   he\'s retiring this year.  he might have been an ok president, who knows?  Walter Cronkite would have been a good one, but he\'s too smart to even want the job.
Peace.

I understand the hate people have for Reagan. A lot of bad things happened both in the US and abroad due to some poor decisions on his part.
What I can\'t tolerate is people coming down on Nancy at a time like this. She lost her husband. And she really stood by him the last few years while he was really ill. Must have been hard on her.

Yes I\'m a Californian, the Planet not State and come from a very hush hush up bringing but the things said here still erks me  I Don\'t know who Robert Quine was, Sorry for adding fuel to some peoples fire, but heres the run down Im a Buckethead fan who plays Guitar and Ukulele,Loves the Written word but I have NOT read everything and if I did I would be VERY boring thanks for sticking up for me in this website Machete and gkg this kind of stuff is what (my guess) terminated my Frohike2 name with Binge and Grab, for asking really stupid things, this year I caved in to buy rabbit ears for my TV and have watched lots more TV then say Movies, But this Internet is somthing else.

OK I\'m done with my Rantin and Ravin "you may fire when ready". General Tarkin; Star Wars A New Hope

no such thing as as stupid questions - only stupid things are to not ask, or upon asking, to not consider the answers given.

FYI - well read men are very sexy, not boring.  in the end, the brain is where it ALL happens.  feed it, build its muscles.
