So Long, Fare Well, and Fuck You.
Great. Now I’m going to have to listen to days upon days of asshat conservatives, aided and abetted by the corporate media, re-writing history as we watch, lauding, eulogizing and canonizing Saint Ronald as a mix between Teddy Roosevelt, Roy Rogers, and Moses.
To hell with that. I remember the 80s. I remember Reaganomics, I remember Iran-Contra, and I remember living through my adolescent years convinced that the doddering old fool was going to push the button on the “Evil Empire” and consign us all to oblivion.
Nixon and Reagan are the ones responsible for spawning what the current Republican party has become, rather than what it once represented, and in my opinion, both of them belong on the “trash heap of history.” Good riddance.
