Best Presidents since WWII

    1]“Communism, like any other revealed religion, is largely made up
    of prophecies. When they fail its clergy simply say that they will
    be realized later on. Thus, if we have another boom, they will argue
    that the collapse of capitalism is only postponed. The fact that the
    greatest booms ever heard of followed Marx’s formal prophecy of the
    downfall of capitalism is already forgotten, just as millions have
    long since forgotten the early Christian prophecy that the end of
    the world was at hand. The first Christians accepted postponements
    as docilely as the Communists of today.” - Henry L. Mencken

  • Anybody see the 9-11-02 Letterman/Clinton show? The perpident had to get his face on tv ASAP after W to cover his sas. (gotcha, policia!)

    Sorry, but most of us Californians watch Jay Leno. He’s much better (IMO) anyways…

    Hmmm! I don’t wonder that y’all lean that way. He’s got better access to the vaccum packed silicon(Dave only has Tony Randall and Regis[though not so much Reeg since his Who Wants to be a Millionaire stint]), a nicer car collection, purty girls down front, celebrity-look-alikes(I liked the Ozzy O.and the Martha S., but the Clinton was better than the Bush[he overdoes the mannerisms]), a black guy paid to laugh at Jay’s lousy jokes(what was the name of the one who had the dignity to walk away?), better tech and props.

    However, I like Dave a lil betta cuz he’s from Indiana(close enough to Cincy, OH). He picked up some of his early corny stuff(the hams)from Paul Dixon, a first generation cornball(used a rubber chicken)talk show host for WLWT - TV5. TV5 is considered a ground breaker in talk shows, but I digress. I enjoy Dave cause he thumbs his nose a the expected. Notice the white socks with the $? suits. He is relaxed and human.

    Jay is still stiff after ten(count 'em, 10) years. I read a interview with Jay recently. The article mentioned that Jay(#1 in the ratings) was paid $14 million a year, while Dave (#2 in the ratings) got $17 million a year. Old news, but Jay’s words sounded bitter and the interviewer commented on the same thing.

    I think the $ will hurt CBS in the long run, but most of the stuff on tv or cable is crap.

    HA! Yet I sometimes watch both Dave and Jay’s stand up comedy, channel surfing between bad jokes, commercials, Jay’s extended stand up and/or Dave’s Top 10Forget the fluff-interviews). - Xi

    This only shows me that Jay would be more “relaxed” and “human” than Dave.

    Lousy jokes? It would seem that Dave is the one. He’s gotten soft.

    This quote makes no sense whatsoever - unless it is positive and Clare has no idea what he/she is talking about.

    I see. Stiff and bitter is human, but not comfortable for some to watch.

    NOT ALL Jay’s jokes are lousy, but “laugh at Jay’s lousy jokes” were the previous band leader’s words. - Xi

    "Communists have always played an active role in the fight by
    colonial countries for their freedom, because the short- term objects
    of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of
    freedom movements. - Nelson Mandela, S. African political leader.

  • What she means is that Communism is a Disease where you must kill the patient in order to cure him/her.

    Hmmm…The Critique of Purse Reason - haven’t read that one yet. Can anybody fill me in on what that is about? As for the “Negro Problem,” WEB should check out Social Inequality - then again, he was the one who read it 😉

    I wasn’t gonna go that far!

    I was looking for once the bug of communism as bitten the intellectual, he/she will be hooked for life.

  • Best of the 20th Century

    1. Ronald Reagan - inspirational leader, made americans proud, killed the USSR and Warsaw Pact threat, brought America back from the economic misery of the late 1960’s and 1970’s
    2. Dwight D. Eisenhower - a brilliant man who got things done
    3. FDR (War Years) - a leader when leadership was needed
    4. Richard Nixon - resignation overshadows the fact he was a good president
    5. Teddy Roosevelt - conservationist, expanded US influence in the world

    Worst of the 20th Century

    1. LBJ - Corrupt, Stupid, and Foolish…many Americans died for no reason under his leadership, the ‘Great Society’ was a complete failure.
    2. JFK - Corrupted by the Mob, Bay of Pigs failure, all flash no substance
    3. FDR (Depression Era) - Depression dragged on because of his inept policies
    4. Jimmy Carter - Wimp, Apologist, and Poor leader
    5. Herbert Hoover - Couldn’t breech the floodgates of the Depression

    Whoever the “Jimmy Carter” fan is, is a complete moron. I don’t even have to explain the reasons why he was perhaps the least effective leader this country has ever had.
