Comments: This Is So Lurid It Makes Me Yawn

At the risk of being redundant, again, a man named Frank Zappa mentioned ALL one need know about Ronald Reagan, long, long ago. His associates, The Mothers Of Invention, mentioned a few lines about President Reagan, also, IMHO.

"If you asked them about it at a party they could barely keep their eyes open..."

I rather suspect, on the other hand, that they would be outraged. "You're smearing a man who is no longer alive to defend himself." That would be their moral principle. If Reagan were still alive at the time, they would say "You're smearing a man who has Alzheimer's and can no longer defend himself." And so on. He would always be given the benefit of their doubt. It's all about him.

Silvia Quintela is no longer alive, either; and was as defenseless in life as in death. It will never be about her.

Not to wander too far off, but can you imagine being the child of a military officer, only to discover, years later, that when you were a baby the state murdered your mother and gave you-as-a-baby to a soldier as a political reward? That'll make for some awkward Christmases, eh...

Good gets punished, (Dr. Quintela gets arrested, brutalized, and murdered) and Evil gets rewarded, (officers get the kids). What a world!
Hope more of those NAZIs end up in the hole.

We have a record of what the hell they were saying when they justified it. There was our team and their team. (Ian Guest's book is searchable on Google.)

If you look it was typical triangulating. See there are "moderately repressive" blah blah blah... totally predicting Clinton and Obama/Hillary on the political scene. Although it seems the internet demons have swallowed almost all pages that seriously researched the New Age Movement and Neoconservatives, switching it with conspiracy kitsch.

Reagan was crazy about the Contras too. Freedom fighters.

It's official, we're living in a B-movie.
