Thom Hartmann just played a recording of Ronald Reagan, from
1948, expressing his very Liberal views. Anyone else hear it or know a link to that speech?

1. I just heard him denigrating GOP for cutting school lunches and my jaw hit the floor

2. I heard it also...
Reagan bemoaning how corporate profits were up 4X but workers wages were stagnant then told a story of a man who retired then had his savings eaten up by "Republican inflation" and had to return to work...... AT 91!!!

Thom said Nancy's father took him aside after they were married and told him how the world works....

Fascinating.

8. Oh, but then McCarthyism came along, and ka-ching!
The money started flowing for those who would sell out their pals, and Ronald Reagan was right up at the front of the line.

11. It's an example of why Alzheimer's is such a terrible, LIFE-LONG disease.
The first to go are the 'higher-order' brain functions and the wasting continues. At the last, before they go and death comes, are just the brain-stem functions ... much like Junior on a pretzel binge.
