name that president....


"The most direct and significant kind of federal action aiding economic growth is ... to cut the fetters which hold back private spending," the president said. He urged Congress to "reduce the burden on private income and the deterrents to private initiative which are imposed by our present tax system" and vowed not to retreat from his pledge of "an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes."

The evidence is clear, he told his audience, "that our present tax system ... exerts too heavy a drag on growth ... siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power, [and] reduces the financial incentives for personal effort, investment, and risk-taking." He insisted -- defying the class warriors -- on tax cuts not only for low-income workers but also "for those in the middle and upper brackets, who can thereby be encouraged to undertake additional efforts and ... invest more capital."


Now, what president would those thoughts have come from ?

Sounds like something Reagan would say.

I wonder how many times he would have pimp-slapped his little brother if he'd lived the last 40 years.

I remember the day Kennedy was shot.
Thought my Grand mother had a heart attack or something.
Her and some of Huey's descendants and Ed had met with him not to long before that day.
She thought allot of him. Well she was a Democrat.

I dont think he would have stopped with a slap.

George Bush Sr. says he can't remember where he was the day Kennedy was shot.

Hmmmmm.

I can only remember the day Reagan was shot. But I also remember some kook who shot at the Whitehouse during the 90s and another who crashed his plane into it.

This is a perfect example of what I've been saying for more than a decade; that the Democrat party of the 50's and early 60's is no more, and has been replaced by some bastardised version of radical Statism.

JFK's policies have little in common with the Leftists that run the Democrat party today, and that's the shame.

I was sitting on a stool at the bar out side my grand mothers bed room a the camp when Kennedy was shot.

All hell broke loose shortly after as the surrounding camp were where the rest of the Democrat political party in Louisiana partied.

Lots of screaming cussing and drinking.

I was 7 or 8 so it was kind of scary.
Might be why I remember it almost like watching a movie.

Johnson was the downfall of the Democratic Party. Terrible president. Completely broke the trust of our nation. It didn't help that he was probably in on it (JFKs doom).

I'll always believe that JFK's assassination was an inside job.

That's about the the way it felt for me the day the Challenger exploded in '86.

More correct than you would believe.
I was raised by these people--on weekends and during most summers.

Was taught to drive an Opel Kadet 4speed and sort of turned loose with it at age 9. The private roads ran here there and yonder through the area.
My Grand father was a blast!

Yea
Me and my brother were watching it on tv in the office.
I saw the smoke trail of the SRBs and thought the managed to turn it around.
Brother said no their dead.
Almost had a fist fight over that.
Years later at a race was talking to the head engineer for the ISS heat dissipation system(he raced a miata) and he told me that the crew had survived the explosion and some or one had made it to and opened the equipment lockers?
Apparently death came on impact with the ocean.(this is not the public story)
The cabins must be built like a vault!

Columbia
Woke up early that Saturday and thought I had dreamed(heard) of an explosion. Couldn't remember any dreams.
Turned on tv later and then realized what I had heard.
Could hear like a light rain for awhile later that day, mostly in the swamps behind the house. The sky was clear.
Later calculated its path from debris field and its heading put its path about a mile west from the house.
