Gee, it’s like 1979 all over again

Let’s see:

Soaring gas prices?  Check.

Flaccid economy?  Check.

Government spending out of control?  Check.

Middle East tensions with assaults on our embassies and murder of ambassadors?  Check.

Impotent foreign policy strategy?  Check.

Fears of nuclear showdown?  Check.

Russian hegemony causing us grief?  Check.

Total loser ensconced in the White House?  Checkcheckcheckcheck.

Maybe I should get my plaid bell-bottoms out of storage and relive the glory days of old.  At least the music was better back then (disco notwithstanding).

Sadly, there is no Ronald Reagan waiting in the wings to put things right.

Some thoughts on government

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

– Wiccapundit

It has occurred to me that there are four types of government administrations:

1. Moral and Competent

2. Corrupt and Competent

3. Moral and Incompetent

4. Corrupt and Incompetent

I would place the Reagan Administration in category 1: moral because it opposed communism and believed in increasing Americans’ personal and financial freedoms; and competent because it actually accomplished its goals of rolling back communismworldwide and vastly expanding economic activity through tax cuts.

I would place the Nixon Administration in category 2: corrupt because of Watergate and Nixon’s paranoia/enemies list; and competent because it actually brought an end to the the Vietnam War by forcing North Vietnam to the negotiating table on the strength of massive military strikes.

I would place the Carter Administration in category 3: moral (in a certain sense) because Carter – although preachy and self-righteous – seemed to genuinely desire the expansion of peace in the world, and was not overtly mired in any major scandals; and incompetent because, well, where do you start?  Iran hostages/growth of Muslim terrorism, Soviet expansionism, “stagflation,” sky-high interest rates, gas lines …

As for category 4, as the line goes from “Highlander”: “There can be only one.”


Corrupt.

Incompetent.

Your thoughts?

Friday Funneh – Reagan Style

We’ve had a very busy week here at RSW; what with computer issues and such, there hasn’t been much time for posting. This is temporary, we assure you! In the meantime, it is Friday, and what better American humorist can we offer you, than Ronald Reagan, himself? Enjoy. =)
