Where was Peggy Noonan in the 1980s? Because that’s what I was left wondering after reading her recent column in the Murdoch penny dreadful, the Wall Street Journal. The man whose syntax she penned, was perhaps the most integral player in our current state of national disrepair. If you crush the unions, eschew “low value” manufacturing jobs, pursue military Keynesianism, gut regulations of every sort and variety, redistribute wealth upward, and in general get the referees out of the way for the Fortune 500 and private enterprise; what result do you expect to get from that sort of a scenario? Ms. Noonan I hope you didn’t believe all that tripe that old Ronnie spewed to the American public. Don’t you know that was just for the benefit of all of those special interests, and profoundly corrupted individuals and organizations that raised him up there as their spokesperson? I would have thought you were in on the hoodwinking? The wool-over-the-eye-pulling? One of the principle players in the “illustrious” flimflam? Apparently the joke was on you though, Ms. Noonan, because I’m not sure what you thought “Reaganosophy” was all about.

What if the Russians invaded?
It’s not so far-fetched an idea, you know. We spent half a century and trillions of dollars to make sure that it would never happen, so it’s really not such a strange notion.
So what if the Russians invaded?
What if they came and stole all of our money?
What if the Russians invaded and enslaved our children as cheap worker bee drones locked in dismal dead-end jobs?
