An interesting comment to my post on how Reagan's puppeteers (and Ollie North's) contributed to America's decline. This comes from an American who was at the cutting edge, so to speak. Here's what he says:
"Too bad I didn't see this blog while all this was going on. As a defense contractor employee during our lords reign, I could see what a waste it was. I also knew he was little more than a pitchman for the ruling elite. I especially like the title they gave him as "patriot".
However, would a patriot allow meat packing companies to send busses down to Mexico to get scabs - Ronnie did. (http://www.citypaper.com/special/story.asp?id=6045ES) More difficult for me personally than seeing the slaughter of cattle and the incredible carnage in those factories was seeing these workers, how they live. Meat packing, until the late '70s, was one of the highest paying industrial jobs in the United States.
Then the Reagan and Bush administrations allowed the industry to bust unions, to hire strikebreakers, to hire illegal immigrants for these jobs, even to transport them here from Mexico in company buses. Now meat packing is one of the lowest paying industrial jobs, as well as the most dangerous.
This is a great blog I will check in periodically.
It makes me sad to see decent, honourable hard-working Americans brought low by these so-called patriots.
