Calif. bill would create annual Ronald Reagan Day

By ROBIN HINDERY • Associated Press Writer • April 8, 2010

California is one step closer to establishing an annual day honoring Ronald Reagan, the former president, governor and actor.

The state Senate on Thursday unanimously passed a bill designating Feb. 6 as Ronald Reagan Day. It encourages schools to spend the day commemorating Reagan’s life and accomplishments.

The legislation, which heads to the Assembly, is one of three Reagan-themed bills Republican lawmakers hope to pass before Feb. 6, 2011. That would have been the 100th birthday of the conservative icon, who died in 2004.

Ronald Reagan Day would be the third special day of recognition in California dedicated to an individual.

The first honors conservationist John Muir. Last year, lawmakers honored Harvey Milk, a gay activist and former San Francisco supervisor who was gunned down at city hall in 1978.

Reagan > Obama

Too early to call, but Obama seems to be going down a similar path of being more show than substance.

Reagan was not all show. He made a lot of substantive changes in his first term. People loved him and respected him and looked up to him. And he was a principled man who did what he believed was the right thing.

And, unlike George W, he was not a complete dumbass. He was no intellectual, but he did appear to have the ability to distinguish bullshit from fact.

But yeah I disagreed with pretty much every single decision or policy he implemented. I had to register for the draft. I watched people buy houses with mortgage rates close to 20% (that's the interest rate, not the down payment). He (with Congress' compliance) created a recession in 1986-88 by restructuring the tax laws in a way that devastated the real estate market. (Imagine the current recession occuring not because of mortgage defaults but because one person decided the tax law needed to be changed).

And of course he flaunted laws and the Constitution.

Reagan's legacy was the 1990s: his two terms were laying the groundwork for an economy in which the manual labor classes did not get to share in the economy's tremendous growth.

Reagan was not all show. He made a lot of substantive changes in his first term. Rich White People loved him and respected him and looked up to him. Only white people though..... And he was a principled man who did what he believed was the right thing, be it getting us out of a recession or aiding senators in smuggling coke into poor black neighborhoods
