Ronald Reagan: What Can’t He Do?

He Lives!  reagan-scout-salutes.JPG

Donald Hank is feeling the spirit, and it’s Saint Ronnie!

How can we account for the miraculous defeat of the Wall Street bailout? Reagan walks among us!

“Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you

Friends, conservatives often complain that no one has ever risen to take the place of Ronald Reagan in our government.

But Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you! His spirit has never once left us.

His spirit was alive and well when you stood up last year and opposed the bipartisan amnesty bill that you knew the Gipper wouldn’t approve.

He was here again today in our Congress during the vote that failed to pass a bill that would have made slaves of every one of us and ended free market capitalism forever in the USA.”

A Gerald Ford Legacy: Newest Victim of the Bank Meltdown?

Priced [Not] To Move    ford-on-the-move-time-cover.jpg

Gerald Ford property speculator Kevin Hayes appears to be one of the silent victims of America’s unfolding banking tragedy,  as Wall Street’s giant sucking sound diminishes the supply of marks willing to pay $15 million so they may walk the pool tiles where Gerry trod. ford-colorado-pool.JPG

Hayes has been trying to unload Ford’s former Colorado ski property since June.  It’s only been shown to four qualified buyers, and he is trying increasingly desperate efforts to recapture that Ford Era magic.

With the materials at hand, Hayes paints a portrait of the great man in retirement, at work on his memoirs:

Ford had a habit of rocking back and forth while writing, and so Hayes had the construction workers preserve a portion of the floor where the chair left grooves.”

Sadly, Ford published his autobiography in 1979, four years before the house was built.

Hollywood Takes A Bold Stance Against Richard Nixon!

Kick Him Again -  Harder, Harder!    nixon-1950-senate-campaign.jpg

When Hollywood wants to send a message they reach for a reliable punching bag, and nobody takes a hit like Richard Nixon!

Robert Redford and other luminaries will gather for a reading of the play  “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For Helen Gahagan Douglas,” a salute to the “Pink Lady” nixon-helen-gahagan-douglas-poster.jpg  trampled in Nixon’s climb to the Senate.

A little beside the point after all these decades, but it feels so good they can’t help themselves.

Lincoln’s Fake Kentucky Home: Now It Belongs To The Ages

All The People, All The Time  lincoln-cabin-penny-design.jpg

The US Mint clambers aboard the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial with an offering of four exciting new designs to replace that tired old Lincoln Memorial.

Most problematic is the salute to Lincoln’s Kentucky birthplace, whose centerpiece is a cabin sometimes billed as the place of Lincoln’s birth.   lincoln-cabin-postcard.jpg     The National Park Service administers the site, but even they acknowledge the building is a fake.
