    I’d like to also remind everyone how the White House – and the Reagans specifically – completely ignored the AIDS epidemic at its inception (when action and funding might have made a difference) and laughed about it because hell, it was just a bunch of gay people dying.

    I hope there’s a hell for this reason alone and I hope he’s burning in it.

    Don’t forget that Reagan paved the road for the US to be the prisoner capital of the world.

    What many Americans forget is what the Cold War era Presidents really did to Central America. It’s why they’re so poor, so crime ridden today. Installed brutal anti-communist dictators have ravaged the countries, exploited the people and killed any resistance. Empire building, or rather these buffer states to the south of the US did what in the end? The sad truth is that despite the political ideology, the politicians play dirty and they play aggressive.

    For over 15 years, I tried to find a reason why Reagan was seen as a great president. When I looked at the top ten ranked presidents, I see him frequently in there. In high school, I heard about how he made the country defensively stronger. A huge contrast to the weak Carter.

    That’s what I kept hearing. In college I asked this questing to my peers. One gave me an answer that was exactly on point as this meme. And it’s why I’m posting. Reagan made us feel *good*.

    That’s it. All my research, as a former Republican I found the parties ideal political figure to be quite horrible. But gave great speeches. That was the start of my slide into being an independent. Then the Republican party became a laughing stock. It’s ruled by corporate interest, and the religious right who are hypocrites. My party left me. It was a sad realization.

    I don’t like Reagan, Bush or Trump but you can do this for Obama:

    “He increased the warrantless surveillance programs but he was so educated.”

    “He increased the number of nations we were bombing but he had such confidence and charm.”

    “He assassinated American citizens, including a 16-year-old boy, but he was just so gracious.”

    He marginalized the AIDS crisis because it was a “gay disease” but he liked jelly beans.

    The more I learn about Ronald Reagan, the more I think he might have actually been evil. Not a bad guy, not a dick, not even a corrupt politician. But genuinely and wholly evil. Or just so incompetent that he seems malicious in hindsight.

    Obviously they’re not as bad, but I see this happening today with modern neoliberals.

    But Obama is my dad!!! He was such a good speaker! And his bromance with Joe Biden! (who cares about all those wars)

    But Justin Trudeau is ATTRACTIVE! That means he couldn’t have ever done anything bad and is definitely not an example of aristocracy within a supposed democracy!

    He defunded community mental health centers.
    As a result is still responsible for 1/3 of the homeless, 1/2 of the over crowded jail population and probably all of the countries mass shooting

    Turns out a lot of people need/needed mental health care. Who knew

    I remember Rambo III final words: dedicated to the brave Mujahideen of Afghanistan.

    Later they changed it to “the gallant people of Afghanistan”

    No better enemies than the Russians, eh?

    Selections from *In the Shadows of the American Century* by Alfred W. McCoy:

    > With extensive quotations from classified memoranda and interviews with top agency officials, volume 2 of the Hitz report offers forty-eight paragraphs of extraordinary detail…about the agency’s alliance with one of the Caribbean’s top cocaine smugglers…To facilitate its arms shipments to the Contras (complicated by a Congressional embargo), the CIA allied with Alan Hyde, then considered a notorious cocaine trafficker who controlled thirty-five ships crisscrossing the Caribbean, and so gained access to his port facilities in the strategic Bay Islands off Honduras.

    > In the years before the CIA allied with Hyde, every US security agency active in Central America had intelligence that he was a major cocaine trafficker.

    > …Hyde’s base was ideally sited not only for smuggling cocaine north but also for the transshipment of arms south to the Contra bases along the Honduras-Nicaragua border.Consequently, the CIA found it convenient to collaborate with him to supply its Contra allies from 1987 to 1989, a critical three-year period in both the proxy war against Nicaragua’s leftist Sandinista government and the smuggling of cocaine into the United States.

    > In March 1988, CIA headquarters authorized the leasing of additional storage facilities from Hyde despite recent internal intelligence that he was “the head of an air smuggling ring with contacts in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.” Within several months, however, “the receipt of continuing allegations of Hyde’s involvement in cocaine trafficking” pressured CIA headquarters to find an alternative, particularly once a resumption of arms shipments to the Contra guerrillas, briefly suspended in response to congressional sanctions, made the agency less dependent upon his storage facilities to “mothball” supplies. Even so, field officers resisted requests from headquarters to sever ties, arguing that Hyde was their only reliable “delivery mechanism.” By early 1989, however, these logistical problems had apparently been resolved, and CIA headquarters finally ordered its field operatives to break off all contact—just a year before the Sandinistas finally lost power in Nicaragua’s February 1990 elections.

     

    > Although the tactical alliance was over, the CIA apparently continued to shield Hyde’s drug smuggling from investigation by both Honduran and American authorities for another four years. In March 1993, an internal CIA directive stated that it was agency policy to “discourage … counternarcotics efforts against Alan Hyde because ‘his connection to [the CIA] is well documented and could prove difficult in the prosecution stage.’”

    > In retrospect, it seems that the CIA had closed its covert war zone to narcotics enforcement from 1987 to 1993, thereby protecting a top drug smuggler from investigation for six years at the peak of the crack-cocaine epidemic. At the same time, **while strongly supporting the CIA Contra campaign**, President Reagan began to emphasize the importance of increased domestic enforcement efforts in the drug war, including draconian penalties for personal use. Such enforcement **doubled the US prison population**, which rose from 370,000 in 1981 to 713,000 in 1989. Driven by Reagan-era drug laws, the number of the nation’s prisoners continued to climb to 2.3 million by 2008, with over half (53 percent) of all those in federal penitentiaries sentenced for drug offenses.
