  • In praise of Ronald Reagan

    Joe Louis's son was on the Chris Dimino show yesterday. He spoke of meeting Ronald Reagan when he was president. Reagan had signed a bill to allow his father to be buried with military men.

    Anyway - Joe Louis's son said Reagan wouldn't let him get away - how he talked to him for 15 minutes straight but wouldn't let him get a word in edge wise. He recounted every time he had ever met Joe Louis are saw him fight.

    Reagan said the proudest moment of his life was a night in Madison Square Garden with Joe Louis said - we are going to win the war - because God is on our side.

    Joe Louis Jr said the President was very genuine in his comments and it left him humbled. He believed the president was trying to make up for the BS the IRS put Joe threw in his later life.

    Great story - and it gave me a whole new view of Reagan.

    What year was this? Was Reagan lucid or did he think he was talking to the Easter Bunny?

          That's real funny.
          When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

            From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

            For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


            I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

            The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

                      Yeah, he was a shadow of the greatness of Jimmy Carter. You libs are
                      hilarious. Truly. How do you explain the outpouring of emotion and
                      sentiment shown by the American people when Reagan died? Most knew
                      what he meant to this country, others just play the shill game.
