The obvious fact about why Ronald Reagan became one of our greatest presidents:

Those of us who kew the 70s era, there is one thing that was very obvious to us then that is completely being ignored today. In that era, the entire population had been duped by the Democrats and the so-called “mainstream media” into believing the United States was evil, defeated, and was inclined to believe that justice would be served if bad things happened to the United States. Ronal Reagan being elected president allowed people to show pride in the United States again, something they had been indoctrinated to not do before Reagan became president. The Democrats and so-called "mainstream media" were actively indoctrinating the population to hate the United States.
That is the most important thing that happened when Ronald Reagan took office. The American people regained their pride, and as a result we accomplished all the amazing things of the 80s.

Greatest presidents:
Washington, Lincoln, Reagan, Jefferson,....

READ ABOUT THE SCUMBAG BUSH FAMILY :
The Bush family and the S&L Scandal
Neil, George Jr., George Sr., and Jeb Bush
The Savings and Loan industry had been experiencing major problems through the late 60s and 70s due to rising inflation and rising interest rates. Because of this there was a move in the 1970s to replace the role of S&L institutions with banks.
In the early 1980s, under Reagan, regulatory changes took place that gave the S&L industry new powers and for the first time in history measures were taken to increase the profitability of S&Ls at the expense of promoting home ownership.
A history of the S&L situation can be found here:
http://www.fdic.gov/bank/historical/s&l/
What is important to note about the S&L scandal is that it was the largest theft in the history of the world and US tax payers are who was robbed.
The problems occurred in the Savings and Loan industry as they relate to theft because the industry was deregulated under the Reagan/Bush administration and restrictions were eased on the industry so much that abuse and misuse of funds became easy, rampant, and went unchecked.
Additional facts on the Savings and Loan Scandal can be found here:
http://www.inthe80s.com/sandl.shtml
There are several ways in which the Bush family plays into the Savings and Loan scandal, which involves not only many members of the Bush family but also many other politicians that are still in office and still part of the Bush Jr. administration today. Jeb Bush, George Bush Sr., and his son Neil Bush have all been implicated in the Savings and Loan Scandal, which cost American tax payers over $1.4 TRILLION dollars (note that this is about one quarter of our national debt).
Between 1981 and 1989, when George Bush finally announced that there was a Savings and Loan Crisis to the world, the Reagan/Bush administration worked to cover up Savings and Loan problems by reducing the number and depth of examinations required of S&Ls as well as attacking political opponents who were sounding early alarms about the S&L industry. Industry insiders were aware of significant S&L problems as early 1986 that they felt would require a bailout. This information was kept from the media until after Bush had won the 1988 elections.
Jeb Bush defaulted on a $4.56 million loan from Broward Federal Savings in Sunrise, Florida. After federal regulators closed the S&L, the office building that Jeb used the $4.56 million to finance was reappraised by the regulators at $500,000, which Bush and his partners paid. The taxpayers had to pay back the remaining 4 million plus dollars.
The Democrats' subprime housing mortgage underwriting program exponentially exceeded the S&L crisis. And, it was predicted to do so in 1999 by the New York Times.

what is it with a culture that can’t have a baby shower without guns being fired?

'Grandmother: 9-Month-Old’s Killing Stems From Fight Over Baby Shower Seating

DETROIT - The grandmother of slain baby Delric Miller revealed during an interview on Charlie Langton’s Talk Radio 1270 morning show she suspects the 9-month-old was killed over a skirmish about seating at a baby shower.

Miller was killed when someone fired an estimated 40 rounds from an AK-47 into his family’s home in Detroit last weekend. Police first said it was a “gang related” incident; grandmother Cynthia Wilkins has a different story.

“They went to the baby shower first of all, at the baby shower they were arguing about seating …They were there to celebrate life, and my grandson is dead today,” Wilkins said

When Langton asked her to explain the relationship between the baby shower and Miller’s death, Wilkins said a fight erupted at the shower when there weren’t enough seats for everyone. Her 19-year-old daughter, the baby’s mother, was involved, as was the expectant mother, 20 or 21 years old.

“They were arguing about seating, turning tables over, it was just ignorant — at a baby shower,” Wilkins said, adding that her daughter told her she didn’t know the people involved.

“Did your daughter leave?” Langton asked.
Wilkins said she did, adding,“After they left the baby shower, they were followed to a gas station, my daughter was followed. The fight escalated.

Then they followed them home, went back when they were asleep, shot up the house and killed my grandson.”

So, the baby’s killing was revenge? Langton asked.
“It is not gang related, it is not, it followed some incident that took place at Club Celebrity (the baby shower),” Wilkins said.“They booked too many events, then it ended up them arguing about a freaking seat.

“They’re telling me my grandson is dead over a seat at a table at a bar.”

Wilkins added that she’s also suffering in the wake of the killing.“I’m not living, I’m barely here. I can’t sleep, I can’t eat. I’m sick. My baby is gone,” Wilkins said, adding,“My daughter is devastated, she is devastated.”

Wilkins added that her daughter doesn’t know the people from the shower or have any idea who opened fire on her house.

“No, she got into it with all of them, she didn’t know the people,” Wilkins said.“If she knew them, don’t you think she would have told them (the police)?”

In light of senseless killings like these, Langton asked Wilkins if she feels safe in the city of Detroit.

And Wilkins defended her hometown.
“To a certain degree, yes I do, this is where I’m from, I should not have to fear somebody from where I’m from. I’m from Detroit, I can go anywhere in Detroit that I choose to go, and I should feel safe.

“A lot of people do not feel safe and it’s because of incidents like this,” Langton said.“Is life that worthless, meaningless?”

“That’s where we’re coming to….No that’s where we’re at,” Wilkins said.“They’re senseless, they’re ignorant… They can get guns, but they can’t read a book.”

Perseveration in schizophrenia.
Crider A.
Source
Dept. of Psychology, Williams College, Williamstown, MA 01267, USA.
Abstract
Perseveration in schizophrenia may take a variety of forms, which can be conceptualized as varying manifestations of an underlying neurocognitive deficit. Comparative studies have demonstrated higher than normal levels of perseverative responding among schizophrenia patients on capacity-demanding tasks, including prompted discourse, reversal learning, and the generation of guessing sequences. There is little evidence that perseveration is associated with deficit signs of schizophrenia. However, perseveration appears to covary with both positive thought disorder and voluntary motor disturbance. Perseveration in schizophrenia thus appears to be a productive sign elicited by a failure to mobilize cognitive resources in situations requiring controlled information processing and the concomitant inhibition of activated but task-inappropriate responses. An information-processing model proposed by Shallice (1988) attributes perseveration to a failure of a higher level executive control system to modulate a lower level response selection system under a requirement for novel response generation. This model suggests that perseveration is the consequence of a failure of frontal specification of striatal outputs during controlled processing, resulting in the continued reselection of previously activated outputs

Justice Scalia:‘It Will Have to Be Decided’ Whether Gov’t Can Regulate Some Types of Guns

As a constitutional originalist, Scalia said those determinations will have to be made “very carefully” looking within the context of 18th-century history.

“My starting point and probably my ending point will probably be what limitations are within the understood limitations that the society had at the time,” he said.“They had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be borne.”
