I've come to the conclusion that Reagan was the worst president we've ever had. (I know everyone says Bush² is worse, but they're wrong. Without Reagan, Bush² would never have happened, for a number of reasons.) I'll be reading something, then all of a sudden I'll get to a line like "a decade later, the Reagan administration allowed these firms to merge and combine without fear of antitrust enforcement." ** And I keep seeing the same shit over and over again, seemingly at random whenever I pick up something new to read: "until Reagan changed that," "until Reagan changed that," "until Reagan changed that," "until Reagan changed that..." And none of it was for the better.
** A special prize to whoever is the first to name the book I am currently reading.
