    "Gettin' Dirty" - Rock and Roll like it was meant to be performed w/ no apologies. Same link here I was at Bradleys on Palm Beach one night back in the day when girls danced on the bar and Kennedy's roamed free. It was Rod's birthday and he plopped $5K for everyone's bar tab. Then Rachel Hunter danced on the bar in a mini skirt. I saw things I shouldn't have seen.

    Yesterday I commented about how Tommy D's legal woes could spell problems for the GOP in '08. I am no legal scholar, but DeLay and his buddies did skirt the letter of Texas law in order to funnel corporate donations to their candidates. The case against DeLay, as flimsy as it may be, could very well result in a prosecution if the jurors are anything like those in the OJ or Michael Jackson trials. Now, there is a new spin. Prosecutor Ronnie Earle has given a film crew full and complete access to videotape his work on DeLay's court proceedings...

    Themes: Leadership, Foreign policy (USA), Foreign policy (USSR and successor states), Conservatism, Autobiographical comments We have lost a great president, a great American, and a great man, and I have lost a dear friend. In his lifetime, Ronald Reagan was such a cheerful and invigorating presence that it was easy to forget what daunting historic tasks he set himself. He sought to mend AmericaÍs wounded spirit, to restore the strength of the free world, and to free the slaves of communism. These were causes hard to accomplish and heavy with risk, yet they were pursued with almost a lightness...
  • Compassionate conservatism is dead

    03/01/2005 6:33:52 PM PST · by thebiggestdog · 8 replies · 235+ views ^ | feb 28 2005 |
    As I was freezing my butt off in the frigid midwest, I was thinking about Ronald Reagan and his famous 'tear down this wall' speech. That, my friends was compassionate conservatism. Unfortunately, we may not see another conservative like RR for a long time. The ideals that Reagan had were simple-the individual can do a better job of managing his or her own life than the government can. Ronnie saw government as being too intrusive on peoples lives, and that if you give something away for free that could be earned, you are doing that person no favor. I was...
  • Is there a way for Freepers to send condolences to Nancy Reagan? (Vanity)

    06/07/2004 7:47:11 AM PDT · by cicero's_son · 9 replies · 254+ views
    I apologize if this has already been discussed, but is there some way that Freepers can send our personal condolences to Nancy Reagan? We all know how much she loved President Reagan, and her grief right now must be terrible. What a strong, tremendous lady she is. President Reagan was so fortunate to have her as a wife and a caregiver these past 10 years. She deserves to hear from all of us how much we loved President Reagan, how grateful we are for his life and service, and how we will keep her in our prayers.
  • Reagan: My childhood memory

    As I write this I am still having trouble grasping the fact that my great protector Ronald Reagan is gone. I was born in 1975 so President Reagan is the first President that I can remember as a young girl. If you asked me to cite you specific Reagan policies from that time, there is no way I could do it. My memory did not capture details of tax cuts and supply-side economics. I can tell you though how clearly I remember the talk about “Russia and the bomb” and “nuclear fallout” that seemed to haunt my dreams when I...

    The Lady Truck Driver and The Gipper - and - The Man That Was, Is and Will Always Be: Reagan June 5, 2004 By Julie Kay Smithson Late one autumn Sunday evening during "the Reagan Years", I loaded twenty-one tons of rolled paper at a small manufacturer located in Dixon, Illinois, President Reagan's boyhood home. Ready to depart, I asked the shipping clerk if it would be possible for me to drive near Ronald Reagan's home on my way out of town. He chuckled and said that it would not only be possible, but also that I would have...
