    Which has what to do with O'Reilly's fast-buck book? (He's churning one out now called Killing Jesus. I wonder if he'll be at the crucifixion.)

    I bashed Killing Kennedy for good reason. Did I bash you? When? Meanwhile I'm being bashed by two posters (or one using two names) as one of the illiterate "libbies," which is another pile of chit.

    Illiterate would be a compliment, since it would indicate an inability to comprehend, as opposed to a denial to comprehend.

    Read what I wrote. Is it so hard? Must be. I wrote that reading that book, KK, brought back memories of books I read in 60s and 70s (duh on the libs for ignoring that) and for my personal memory of those events, having lived thru them (ignore that too). I did not claim that KK book was 100% source of my opinions or thoughts.

    I don't really care if O'R is a dem or a repub, I dont watch him. I do however read books from varied authors some of which are enlightening. Some open up other thoughts. Try it.

    Next up: Bonhoeffer (that ought to make Libs nuts re any posts I place about that book)

    BTW- using the "c" instead of the "s" letter does not make one less crude.

    I read what you wrote. What is your problem? You or someone mentioned Killing Kennedy, and I pointed out why its author is a fraud, for the benefit of anyone who may not know. I didn't say anything about you or your memories.

    Have you read a book on paranoia? Try it.

    Who on Earth believes Reagan would be considered a Dem today? That's just crazy talk. Not saying you believe it, but where did you read that nonsense?

    I don't think Obama has the cojones to challenge the Federal Reserve. But great link and story. Thanks for posting it.

    The Bretton Woods agreement was actually signed in 1944. For what it's worth, Kennedy would not have been considered a right-wing extremist. Although the legislation failed under his presidency, Kennedy was a strong supporter of Medicare, the Obamacare of his day. The right strongly opposed it. Reagan even recorded a speech on behalf of the the AMA in which he stated that the enactment of Medicare was tantamount to enslavement and the beginning of our loss of freedom.

    Kennedy on Medicare according to Ted Sorensen
    Kennedy also supported the legislation that became the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As was the case with Medicare it wasn't enacted until after his death. The right considered the legislation as a federal infringement of states rights. Interestingly, this marks the 50th anniversary (on Monday) of Kennedy's decision to federalize the Alabama National Guard for the purpose of providing security for two students enrolling at the University of Alabama pursuant to court order. Following is an excerpt from Kennedy's speech delivered when he ordered the guard to protect the students. Sounds more liberal than conservative to me.

    As far as Reagan is concerned, the Ronald Reagan who governed California would have almost certainly been considered a liberal by today's standards. As governor he signed into law the largest tax increase in the state's history, one of the most liberal abortion laws in country at the time, and multiple pieces of legislation protecting the environment.

    The following (from a conservative commentator) describes Reagan's accomplishments as governor although the commentator clearly would not have used that term to describe the legislation.
