Reagan-bashing |


Our great former governor and president Ronald Reagan has just been laid to rest and the “bashers” are giving him their best. These are people who can’t see the forest because of the trees or their nose in front of their face.

They only have one object in mind, and that is to focus on a negative. These folks must be 100 percent perfect people. Never go 56 mph in a 55-mile zone and on and on. As an old fogie who went through the “Cold War” looking at a looming nuclear war and his achievement to stop it, I feel this alone should give him nothing but respect.

Quoting from another greatest President, JFK, ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country. Get a life, bashers.
