16. I hate to say it, but the OP seems like a classic straw-man argument
If you were responding to something someone had said here on DU, it would be one thing, but telling us about something you overheard someone say in a restaurant, and then presenting an argument against it seems to beg for someone to publicly disagree with it. For example, "Let's not do the same thing ourselves. Let's show some humanity." seems to scold us for something that someone else said somewhere else.

That being said, I present you with an echo of how I remember Reagan's reign:


Old Mother Reagan

Old Mother Reagan
And her crew
Took away
From me and you
I hope she goes far away
She better go far away
Y'know it ain't right
When it's all wrong
This is the Old Mother Reagan
Protest song
Old Mother Reagan
She's so dumb
She's so dangerous
How come...
Old Mother Reagan went to heaven
But at the pearly gates
She was stopped!
-- Violent Femmes, Old Mother Reagan, 1986
