A significant percentage of US voters believe Ronald Reagan was the best president in US history. Despite Iran/Contra, arms for hostages, and trickle-down economics. History is not the long-suite among high school graduates in the United States.
Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
Yahoo News conducted a poll of +-1400 voters and asked who was the worst president in US history. The results were that 33% believe the guy in the White House now is the worst. 28% believe the guy who was in there before him was the worst.
The pollsters used subtle methods for determining what percentage of the voters believing the guy in there now is the worst did so because he was black. They concluded +-5% simply could not stand the thought of a black man serving in the White House except as a shoe-shine boy.
Which leaves the question among non-racist voters precisely equal: 56% of US voters believe one of the last two US presidents was the worst in US history. 28% Bush, 28% wossname.
All of which should raise some alarming questions in the minds of everyone else. When did they quit teaching children US history in school?
Sheeze! The freaking Civil Freaking WAR was fought during the watch of one US president! Two were impeached! One was responsible for the Trail of Tears and moving the aboriginal tribes east of the Mississippi the-hell anywhere west of the Mississippi and stealing their farms, barns, equipment, animals, crops for white people. Even though those Cherokees and some other tribes were already doing their best to BE white people. Hell, a few years later they even had a Cherokee general commanding troops during the Civil War. Chreeeeeist! They even owned slaves! What the hell do you have to do to be civilized?
Then there’s Lyndon Johnson, faked the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and used it to justify carpet bombing of North Vietnam, had South Vietnam President Diem assassinated by the CIA, and did the Great Society.
There’s John freaking Kennedy, son of a damned bootlegging smuggling NAZI supporter during the pre-WWII years. Responsible for the Bay of Pigs, among other fiascos.
Hells bells, there’s Clinton for Christs sakes. Got a blowjob in the Oval Office. No Jennifer Oneal, her, either. Shot up Ruby Ridge, murdered a couple-score Branch Davidians outside Wacoi, and smuggled huge amounts of coke and crack into Arkansas on CIA aircraft. Got almost impeached because of shady real estate deals he and the little woman were up to their asses in.
These two guys now and just before him are pikers. Except where deficit spending and fruitless military adventures are concerned. These two couldn’t find their asses with flashlights when it comes to real corruption.

Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.
When Ronald Reagan invented trickle-down economics and sold it to US lawmakers it sounded like one-heluva good idea to the people who know most about money by having a lot of it. The idea was that if people who have more than a million dollars didn’t pay as much in taxes the extra money they had would trickle down their legs and end up in the pockets of store clerks, hamburger flippers, ditch diggers, truck drivers, and guys who spend their days in slaughter-houses whacking hogs on the forehead with sledge-hammers to keep hams flowing into the grocery stores.
The problem was that all those rich people spent the extra money they got with tax breaks watching pornography. Vanessa Del Rio, Annette Haven, Lisa Deleeau and Marilyn Chambers did indeed find themselves plenty of work, though. Johnny Wad Holmes and Ron Jeremy got a fine boost from trickle-down economics.
But that was back before the Internet. Once Donald Trump, wossname, the Microsoft guy, and wossname #2, the AOL married to Jane Fonda guy, had worn themselves out watching porn they naturally just went back to trying to figure out how it could make them some more money. Probably a lot of that went into recruiting new porn stars and putting their work up where it could make them some more tax breaks.
Today there are a million porn sites on the Internet, I read somewhere. Which must mean there are what? 50? 60 million? people out there working to keep the porn industry going, moaning, grunting and sweating all day long taking advantage of trickle down economics.
In fact, I’m betting old Bill Clinton’s probably spending his idle days when Hillary’s busy checking out the economics of it. He was too young when the Kennedy’s were passing Marilyn Monroe around between them, but Vanessa Del Rio might still be alive.
