    Why is his upper lip perfectly parallel with his hat brim?

    ^ The hat knows who’s boss.
    Also, decades of experience with a mirror in the costume department.

    (cough) saved your ass Fawkes , ;)

    A few years ago I conjured up the idea for as many KisPers as could to rendevous at the Reagan Library in Los Angeles. Amazingly about 25, give or take, showed up! We all toured the Library on Day1. KisPers came from all over the USA… Day2 we drove down to the San Juan Capistrano Church & toured it. We got motel rooms at the same place. That evening we gathered at a cosmic Bar-be-que and thoroughly porked out, Great conversations with real, live KisPers took place at the table!
    Day 3 was shoot the shit outside our motel rooms until it was time to drive down to the Dana Point Marina, where we got a single table put together, had great lunches, more gabfest & then walked the marina, full of sailboats and cabin cruisers…..
    Day 4 we hugged each other and headed back to our bunkers all over America!!!!! Lotta pictures——-

    It was a very rare face-to-face gathering and I am glad we were able to pull it off. 100 fucking intelligent Conservatives with Headmissy as the HMFIC!!!!!

    You ever do that again Colonel Jerry, SIR! Let me know. A few years back I had a friend of mine that lived just a few miles from Reagan’s library. We took in the tour. What a great reminder of what a REAL president is supposed to be! Sadly, my friend has since moved to Nashville and I am not sure when I will get to the west coast again, but properly motivated I could be convinced to meet up with a few of my Porchmates. In the meantime, I think everyone should watch this video every so often. I did a couple nights ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXBswFfh6AY

    Why does the Reagan era seem so long ago now? He was my second and third presidential vote; I threw away the my first. (Hanging head in I’m-sorry-I-didn’t-even-know-the-difference-between-conservatism-and-libtardedness-but-voted-for-the-Georgia-boy-because-I-was-and-am-a Georgia-boy-shame) I thought he was very smart, what with being a nuclear submarine commander and training under Admiral Rickover. Compared to the affable and lovable but bumbling and fumbling Gerald Ford, he of tripping down Air Force 1 stair fame, there was no comparison in my as yet unencumbered mind. Concluding my defense, let the record show I have never failed to vote GOP each and every time the circus came to town.

    Reagan really knew how to just be a great guy, the greatest patriot and an independent leader. The antithesis of our current situation. Thanks for highlighting his birthday, MiLady.

    Ronald Reagan reminded me of my grandfather. Not perfect, but well balanced by logic, kindness and a demand for integrity. With those qualities, good things materialize without effort. Those things are demanded by the United States today.

    mike f (#8) I surely do understand your voting for the peanut farmer. Nuclear sub commander, put there by Rickover – I woulda thought that was pure gold.

    But now it turns out that


    He was discharged from active duty on 9 October, 1953. According to an old friend of mine who served as Rickover’s personnel officer at Naval Reactors, LT Carter did not complete nuclear power school because of the need to take care of business at home.
    The prototype for the USS Nautilus was completed in Idaho in May 1953, so LT Carter might have had some opportunity to see it in action before leaving the Navy. However, the USS Nautilus did not go to sea until January 17, 1955, so there is no possibility that he ever qualified to stand watch on a nuclear powered submarine.

    PS DougM: Gen Patton practiced and perfected his stern expression in front of a mirror, too.

    I suspect much the same about MacArthur, but there’s no evidence.

    LOL…So sorry, DougM, Sir! Just a misremembering thing, seems to be a lot of that lately. But thanks all the same. Miss him.

    ZZMike…Thanks for the update. Instead of research I used my memory – see above – plus it was a long time ago, more than 12 years!

    Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

    Ancient historical note:
    As an undergrad, I went to the ’68 Repub convention in Miami Bch as a volunteer sign-waver and literature hander-outer for Reagan.
    He lost the nomination to Nixon, anyway.
