A lot of the talking heads are quick to dismiss the similarities between George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, but here is a few to think about....

They both came to power when the country was deeply divided, (although Reagan won by a wide margin)

They both cut taxes in order to improve the economy

They both faced a murderous idioligy that threatened the very freedoms we hold dear

They both shared a deep belief in God

They both had a space shuttle crash while in office and had to console a grieving nation.

They both saw their tax policies turn an economy around

Reagan was no doubt a better speaker, but Ronald Reagan never had to face the challenges that George W. Bush has faced and is facing during his 8 years.

I will guarantee everyone that of Ronald Reagan was alive and able to witness the job George W. Bush has been doing since he became the POTUS, Ronald Reagan would place his hand on his shoulder and say "Soldier on my Son"

Well, I have had it with all this venom tonight. I am shutting down and going to watch HGTV. Maybe I will get some decorating ideas, or a new way to garden.

Enough is enough. I am already on blood pressure meds. I think I need to sign off until tomorrow.

rintense, thanks for the pictures. Seeing Berlusconi and others reminds me of how far we have come from September 11. And I am pleased to see the fast friendships of some of these men still remains.

Good night!

I will NOT say "yes" unless it's clean. Their friendship is interesting--Dana's mom keeps their house spotless all the time. I'm sure she (Dana's mom) about has a heart attack when she sees ours. It's not nasty filthy dirty, but there are usually dishes in the sink and laundry to be folded.

On the other hand, Dana has NO pets. I mean NONE. They have a little fish pond out back, and bring the fish in for the winter, but that is ALL. And her mom will NOT get her any sort of pet, even a beta fish or hamster. So Dana just loves to come over and help with all of our pets.

***"By Friday night, THE LEFT IS GOING TO EXPLODE" ***

I'll be listening for the FOX gong (Breaking News) and Shep Smith saying, "Here is the breaking news; Hillary, Teddy, and John Kerry have just spontaneously combusted, in apparent response to the support of the Rep. party, Former Pres. Ronald Reagan, and current (and future) Pres. George W. Bush. Tom Dashole's head has exploded and a HAZMAT team is on the way . . . the capitol has been evacuated as a precaution . . . Bill is melting in a local McDonalds, which has also been evacuated till the hazardous waste can be cleaned up . . . And Nancy Pelosi's head is spinning uncontrollably in 360 degree circles and she's foaming at the mouth. Further developments announced as they occur . . . "

Off topic a bit, and thanks Rintense for the pictures and for the vivid images of what you would do to that guy I never heard of till tonite but already despise,

Anyway, what I was going to say is, I've been wondering about Fr. Danforth. The Church (Episcopal) has been going through quite a lot of trouble lately between conservatives and liberals. I have been Very Mad at the EC leadership for at least ten years. I wonder which side Fr. Danforth is on... I hope he is conservative.

In the quick blurbs I've seen today, many young children are also going thru the line. Pray that this is a revival of family values, Christian values, as their parents tell them about Pres. Reagan and what he stood for, and what Pres. Bush stands for.

That would be awful. I can't even be at school without my pets. I have three fish and two frogs and our family has two dogs and two cats. I always miss the dogs and cats at school :( I like to scare my mom by telling her I'm never getting married, I'm just gonna have twenty cats :)

Thanks,

I told my wife back in 1989 that Ronald Reagan will go down in history as one of the best presidents ever to serve. She laughed and said "why?" I told her that he lifted a weary nation to its feet and made it believe in itself again, he stood tall and faced down the threat of the Soviet Union, and it will end up on the ash heap of history. About 4 years ago I told her that when "Dutch" passes away, we will see the world pay respects to the man who defeated Communism and a nation paying respects to a man who saved America and the world.

I will say right now that George W. Bush will one day be remembered as the President Ronald Reagan passed the torch to, and saved the world from a different kind of Tyranny, but just as dangerous. What is happening in the middle east will change the course of history, and IMHO, for the greater good of mankind

Hi rintense, that's a great first picture .. I love the red white and blue cart .. how cute. Also, thanks for repeating that statement the President made about President Reagan .. I saw him say that today .. and right away I thought .. President Bush could be speaking about himself.

I hope the public catches on.

Thanks for thread Rintnese..wonderful photo,. I havent read the entire thread but recall hearing the other day that either 41 or 43 did their honeymoon at this island? correct or bad info?

Homemom..the unbuttoned shirt is nice.. but I am STILL waiting for the muscleshirt & shorts!

We on Dose need to make up a muscle shirt for him .. with Dose items, logos, etc. Just like he gets from the football, basketball jerseys (he never wears)..

Tell him his drooling fan base would REALLY love to see him model it!

I leave for DC early in AM. Just talked w/Kristinn(pres of DC group).. we will be meeting them at 4PM... Oliver needs a bath to be prepared for the cortege travel route. I need a bath to not gross out new FReeper friends!

Oliver is now outside protecting the yard from foreign invader elements (deer & raccoon).. both now on roof & some racoon in trees around house.

I am so very pleased with the Reagan ceremonies thus far,
and IMO, the funeral as it has been described, will be not
only fitting for his greatness, but also down home American.
We are burying and bidding farewell to the greatest
president of the last centruy, bar none.

I totally agree with you.
His torch has been passed to GWB, and
come this November we must "win one for the Gipper."
A Bush vicotry with long GOP coattails.

He has been a moderate conservative republican.

Know what you are saying. I think the Episcopal
church will split. The consrvatives are more
angol-catholic. We have several a-c priests here.
Our Bishop who is about to retire is very Conservative.

One last thing....

I believe that one day we will see a monument in the middle east that honors those who came from far off lands, and liberated them from the Tyrant's who brainwashed their children into a suicidal and murderous ideology. There will not be a graveyard like we see in Normandy or Omaha Beach, but there will be a symbol or monument that honors those who gave their lives for the Liberty and Freedom of people they never knew, as well as, a recognition of the leaders of our time who supported President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair in the noble and just cause, much like Roosevelt and Churchill are recognized today for their heroic actions

It's cool seeing them all together. First W tours Europe, then brings them all home to camp. One big happy family. Wouldn't it be great if they could just all get along?

I wonder if Q Elizabeth feels left out? She didn't get to go to camp!

I was so upset when he showed up in Simi Valley. Did you see the shot where there was this woman off to his right (our left in the picture)? She was standing in line, she had on a white blouse and I think light colored pants. She was staring on and off at Kerry (or should I say glaring). Her body language and facial expression indicated she was not pleased to see Kerry there. Her expression never changed the whole time he was there. I noticed the media didn't use that camera position except for a couple of times. It was very funny.

Rush said this morning that if Kerry went to the CA viewing, it would cause him more harm than good. Then, when the dork leaves, he gives the media a thumbs up - what was that supposed to mean ..? yipee Reagan's dead, or yipee I was such a great person to pay my respects to Reagan and show I'm not partisan. YUK!!

taking kids, teaching them, showing by EXAMPLE

not leaving them at home with cartoons, video games, crap on internet (unless they are profoundly mature & are FREEPERS)

Our Bishop is Stanton... very conservative, but in a mixed diocese

I hope the church doesn't split, but the liberals have pushed their agenda to the point that many feel they cannot stay.

They totally betrayed the African church which is in a hard place there with all the Muslims. All they care about is their own selfish issues. (sorry not the thread for this but ....)

You get him girl and I help you (even though I know you don't need any). He's one disgusting excuse for a human. In fact, he's NOT even human. I don't know why they give people like that, air time.

On second thought, it just makes President Reagan look that much better. If you want to get more angry, watch the call in portion of C-Span. There's some SICK people in this world.

Thanks--I like to think we have a fun house.

I also "let" our animals have babies. Last year when our puppies were babies (it was a planned pregnancy!) several of the school classes came over. At the time we had baby puppies, baby guinea pigs, as well as fish and hermit crabs and a cat. The kids had a BLAST with all the animals!
