    And of all the actor's to play the Gipper, James Brolin. For the love of God, the man is married to Barbara Streisand! I wouldn't think this guy is left leaning at all /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Re: CBS Won\'t Air \'Reagans\' Miniseries

    It would be nice to think that CBS has misgivings about airing a show that was basically designed as a character assassination by Brolin/Streisand and company. But the sad reality was that it was purely financial. Threats of boycotts and bad press for CBS forced the decision, not a sudden moral epiphany. However, it still worked and rightly so. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    lol! I'd never assume any kind of decent moral ideals from leftists anyway. If hittin em in the pocket book is the only thing that will convince em, its all good.

    Fact is reagan is one of the greatest presidents ever and he proved that both lowering taxes and negotiating with our enemies from a position of strength works. The left will forever hate him and seek to slander the man because he defeated their ideological allies, the socialists.

    [/ QUOTE ] I agree that Reagan was one of the greatest presidents ever. But I also think his wife started a loosing battle with the war on drugs. I could be wrong, but it seams with making a big deal about it, she made it "Cool" in the kids eye's.

    yeah, drugs weren't "cool" in the 60s or anything. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    its just my opinion, but weed should be legalized and taxed all to hell. caught with non-gov-approved weed? death penalty. Caught with any other illicit drug? death penalty. war on drugs? won.

    its ok, in the Jason-sonian society, drug dealers are dealt with in a way similar to saudi arabia. kill em... then hang em up in public squares with signs on their chests that say "I was a drug dealer". I guarentee the dealer population would go down dramatically.
