Then why bring it up?

If you think he was a terrible person, fine, don't post. We're paying our respects for a dead person, period.

Where you here when Reagan Died?



But aside from the Kennedy Assassination, and Watergate...

He did oppose the Civil Rights legislation proposed by Lyndon Johnson.

And for that I respect him. I mean, anyone who has the courage to oppose that must be decent.

Listen, I am sure he was a loving husband, a nice father, and a loving grandfather and for that I respect him.

His politics...however, make me shake my head.

My Reagan reference was because the hate spewing when he died was pretty large compared to me, one lowly poster.

Then don't post here and start a thread about his politics! You don't go to a funeral and start waving around bloody shirts. Right now, I don't care if he was a shitty president or whatever. He has a family who is sad, and he did a lot for my city. It's Christmastime, for fucks sake.

I didn't participate in the Reagan thread b/c I thought it was disgusting.

If this thread constitutes a funeral I stand corrected.
I have very strong feelings about the Assasination of President Kennedy and Watergate. Maybe they got the best of me.

Sorry for your loss.

God, I don't even know how to respond.

Yeah, I really cared NOTHING about Watergate or JFK... cause it's just so easy to just infer that because I'm sorry for the loss of another person.

OK...I give...I was not inferring anything at all about you caring or not caring. I was attempting to explain my strong reactions not make a statement about you.

I am not even close to trying to debate you.

I was sincere in my sorry for your loss comment. It is clear that it was not taken to be sincere.

Thread closed per author's request.

It IS ok to have a thread to simply pay respects to the dead, no matter who they were.

I will allow a new thread to be started by someone else since I'm sure some folks still want to discuss the topic.
