Is conformity, consumption, and obedience really that bad?

I know this is a day late, but it still deserves notice. President Ronald Reagan passed away, at the age of 93. He had been with alzheimers disease for quite a while, so this can give his family closure, knowing he will suffer no more. Whether or not you liked his politics, he can go down in history as one of our more humorous presidents. So, this is for you Mr. President, you made us laugh, and for that we are greatful.

Something really odd and a little depressing to hear, actually. I heard it Saturday night. Yes, rest in peace, Ronald Reagan.

Perhaps to bring a little levity to the subject I should supply a link to a rather irreverent flash animation. It is on Newgrounds, so get your popup blockers ready.

What's strange to me is that most of the Americans in this forum probably weren't even born when he was still president.

Myself, I was only 3 when he left office...

I was five, I remember very little from when I was that young. I do remember the election of the Bush Sr. for some reason....

I remember the Regan years.. he was a good fellow.. I was not to keen on his political views.. but.. he was a very likable fellow.. and because he was so likable (not to mention years of work by other presidents) he was a major aid in the ending of the cold war. He was such a graceful speaker as well. They’re where several times his speeches would make me cry.. when the challenger exploded.. his speech to the nation was one of the most touching pieces of work I have ever seen.

I wasn't alive during his presidency, but he did a lot of great things while in office.

i heard that the other day, coincidentally. it had about the same effect on me, and it wasn't a matter that i can say i remember being around for (although i may have been)
hearing he'd passed away was a little strange. but yes, may he be where he wants to be now.

While I (as you may have guessed) was never a fan of Regan's politics, I admire his resolve. He didn't back down, he didn't waver, he didn't cut any slack - he stuck to his principles, and while they weren't my principles, I admired him for it.

he was old. personally, i dont think its that sad of an event. people have to die eventually. i mean i wouldnt want to live that long. plus he had alzheimers. so yeah, a person died etc, but it doesnt really bother me because my aunt is gonna die from cancer within the next 5 years, and shes like 53, and my friends mom is too, and shes only 44! and my dads first wife was only about 30 when she died, maybe not even. and old guy dieing isnt that bad.

sorry if i offended anyone. i disagree with his politics, but definitly rest in peace, and thank you for ending that damn war!
