Sadly enough, if the Russians grabbed a piece of Alaska Obama wouldn’t do anything about it

Trash-talk.

But the Russkies earned the right to it, courtesy a pathetically weak and impotent American leadership.

What about California? Why are these old, corrupt, and now super-rich commies ignoring California?

Ans:

They are not. All they have left to do is change "government" to правительство (pravitel'stvo "government" in Russian)

The candidate that resembles Reagan the most IMO would be Trey Gowdy.

He is fearless in his criticism of this administration.

Reagan honed his communication skills working for GE and on his radio minutes during the 70s. He learned to communicate in a way that made sense to the common man. We need conservative populism like that. But Reagan also had critical executive skills.

His Presidency of the Screen Actor’s Guild was critical to his leadership skills as he saw the good, the bad and the ugly in that industry. That helped him manage the press and know when to accept or reject the advice of his handlers/advisors.

His service in the military gave him valuable insights into that critical national institution. He made some mistakes, but that’s par for the course and overall he was an excellent CIC.

Finally, he served 8 years as California governor. That experience is critical to understanding Reagan’s success as POTUS. He beat Pat Brown, the incumbent two term governor and liberal by a landslide 57-43. He signed an abortion bill that lead to millions of abortions in California. He also raised taxes. How many FReepers would forgive him for those two things?

Yet the experience readied him for future battles where his heart strings would be pulled in the wrong direction. He survived a recall attempt, fought with the SC of California and learned how treacherous judges could be. He squeeked by with less than 53% for his 2nd term, but was able to cut taxes due to surpluses.

All those experiences are what made Reagan great. Keep in mind that California was the nations most populous state. It was a dynamic state surpassing Iowa in ag and NY in mfg. During Reagan’s governorship 25% of Californians were employed in high tech industries. California ranked as the 7th largest economy in the world.

Nobody on the horizon has that kind of experience. They might be “conservative” like Reagan, but they don’t have the skill set to run the country like he did. We need a governor and I’d like to see both the VP and the Pres. as governors. That’s the way to beat Hillary.

Ireland is still armed. And, that’s a long bitter slog right there.

I’ve been in gun stores in Ireland, but the arms are typically kept in vault rooms -not a tourist stop.

For the same reason you actually took the time to read the article.

In other words....they didn't.

No Russian Commie is going to invade San Francisco. First thing you know, their tanks are painted in pastel paisley flowers with Daffadilos hanging from their gun barrels.

Then a bunch of gay mimes will make fun of Putin.

Next the Flaming Faggots will moon the Russies, making them puke all over their weapons.

Then Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O’Donnell will come out and tell some jokes. That will have them rolling in their boots with laughter.

And lastly, California’s secret weapon, weirdo Hilton Perez will come out and kiss the Russkies, thus assuring their death by barf suffocation.

That is why the Russians ignore California. They’ve got enough problems in the Motherland to work on. Why occupy a disease known as San Francisco?

This proves Russia has Nut cases just like we do. Nice to see this become a Russian Joke—Better than or them acting on the desires. There were so flaws in the treaty we signed with the Czars on the purchase of Alaska—Some things we didn’t do right back in the 19th Century—So they might have a case—of sorts. But short of national break-up or war, I can’t see Alaska going back to Russia. Now if Alaska became an independent Republic (with President Sarah Palin) I could see them seeking Russian protection—or aid.

Does Trey have two terms as Chief Executive of the most populous state in the country under his belt, like Reagan did?

A lot of people like to equate certain politicians to Reagan, but there is one thing Reagan had that almost all of them don’t, the skins on the wall, and experience “In the Arena.”
