Time to mourn Reagan is long past

Tim to mourn Reagan is long past
Reagan left us several decades ago. The departure came when he bolted the actors union and hired on as a General Electric hustler —— a hustler for the corporate agenda of control, cheap wages and endless war. From that day in the 1950s Reagan was on right wing life support. It converted him from a caring, thinking activist into an obedient, congenial turncoat. His bosses were so impressed with his acting that they catapulted him into politics and the White House. Plenty to mourn all along the way.

However, I mourn Reagan's actual passing nearly 50 years ago. That was the real goodbye.

Smiling Seriously,
Elfie
