I Never Knew You - And For That I'm Glad

I did not live in the hayday of the "Reagan Revolution," and so I don't really relate to him on a personal level, but I hate him for his policies, and I curse him for the harm that he has caused me, and this country.

He filled our prisons with hapless drug users, and filled our streets with hopeless mental cripples. He drove our nation into debt, and our government services into ruin. He used an increase in the Social Security payroll tax - levied on the middle class - to provide tax cuts for the super rich. Reagan was the blueprint for everything about this nation that i despise. Now, in death, he will give his silly-grinned protege - George W. Bush - a guaranteed 5-points in the polls, or more, when Bush speaks at his funeral, wrapping himself up in the shroud of hatred, ignorace and fear that Reagan so proudly wore for all his political career.

I don't feel up to writing a proper Euology, like the 18 page behemoth of insipid hero-worship that the N.Y. Times has put together, and I doubt I ever will. I don't have the words, or eloquence, to express how I feel.

In 1994, when Richard Nixon died, Hunter S. Thompson wrote a eulogy for him. It is one of the most vicious and hateful things I have ever read, and if I could match it, it would describe perfectly how I feel about the passing of Ronald Reagan.

He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin.
Richard Nixon was an evil man -- evil in a way that only those who believe in the physical reality of the Devil can understand it. He was utterly without ethics or morals or any bedrock sense of decency.

Read it all. It is worth it.
