    Happy "Ronald Reagan Day" --but not in Massachusetts

    In Massachusetts, it must be the 50th anniversary "Bulger Brothers Public Service Day" instead? Or is it the 30th anniversary of free public assistance for Obama's illegal relative....the "Auntie Zenuiti Temporary Welfare Assistance Day"?

    40 states now recognize the great President's 102nd birthday today .

    Each year the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project asks governors from all 50 states to issue a proclamation declaring Feb. 6 "Ronald Reagan Day" in their respective states. Today, the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project proudly commends the 40 governors -- Republicans and Democrats alike -- who have chosen to honor President Reagan's 102nd birthday.

    "Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad.  He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President," said Grover Norquist, founder and chairman of the project.

    Founded in 1997, the project works to encourage the naming of landmarks, buildings, and roads after President Reagan. Currently there are 108 domestic dedications in 28 states, and 14 international dedications in seven countries.

    Examples of domestic dedications include the Reagan Elementary School in Omaha, the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway in Cincinnati, and even a Reagan bust located in a McDonald's – the Ronald Reagan Memorial Bust in Northport, Alabama.

    In Nevada, the Mount Reagan Project is leading an effort to name a mountain in honor of the late president.   

    Recent international dedications include a statue in London, a statue in Budapest, and a statue in Warsaw.

    All 30 GOP governors are issuing proclamations, as well as nine Democratic governors and one independent governor – Rhode Island's Lincoln Chafee.  Eight Democratic governors have refused to issue proclamations (including Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick)

    Please...Ronnie-Raygun is nothing more than a bumpersticker slogan and a canard of empty rhetoric to the wingnut party of today.  The fact that Grover is leading the charge proves that.

    Ahhh Ronnie... a REAL American and a MAN to boot.

    THOSE were the good old (PRE COMMIE) days.

     

    Makes me sad that we're stuck with this actor.  



    A hollywood actor under near total deference to his wife.  How..."conservative"....

    Your homophobia is coming further into focus with your professed man-love for Ronnie Sr....

    Getting Mass to recognize Reagan would be like having Arizona recognize MLK, .....oh wait that did happen.

    To today's progressives, they want to have it both ways, as usual. Reagan is mightily feared.

    Feared? Why, did he come back from the dead as a zombie?

    When is Clinton Day? When is Bush Day? When is JFK day? Why does Comingliberal want another hack holiday in MA? Does he work for the state?

    Re: Happy

    Meanwhile, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida celebrate - as state holidays - the birthday of Jefferson Davis, first (and only) president of the Confederacy, in honor of slavery in the u.s.

    Y'know...because The Civil War was such a good idea that they want to keep those memories alive...in case we have to go through it again some time.

     

    Word has it that some folks wanted him on Mt. Rushmore but declined because the rock wasn't white enough.

    Reagan should have been impeached. He was a terrible president who willingly broke the law.

    Interestingly, one of the, if not THE, biggest, champions and friends of Ronald Reagan was our very own Tip O'Neil.  Hey what would that idiot and half of Europe know that the liberal hatefesterers here don't?

     

     

    It's not that interesting.

    Tip's got his own tunnel here.

     

    How many statues of him are in red states...?

    We have a day to celebrate Presidents. Much as I liked Reagan..I don't think he deserves his own day.

    Sure whatever you say.  You are an expert about something with which you have no actual experience.  Just rant on mindlessly.  It keeps you going...

    Re: Happy

    Well..geez..why does it have to be on February 6th..?? Why can't it be in August. If you move Ronald Reagan day to August..I will throw my full support behind it. I am always looking for free "beach day".

    All kidding aside. I am with the others. I like Reagan too..but what did he do that was sooo special that we should set aside a day to honor only him? He did some great things..but other presidents have done great things.
