    About the Al Gore posting on June 7, 2004, “THANK YOU!!!! Ronald Reagan for breaking the Curse of Tecumseh and saving my life.” I’ve heard that the Curse stated that either the President in the 20th year elections would die in office, OR not be able to complete the duties of office. If so, then the Curse may be alive considering that Former President Ronald Reagan was thought to be in the earlier stages of Alzheimers at the end of his Presidency, and Al Gore actually was popularly elected but did not get to serve in Office. Please comment. Reply to: [email protected]

    I was talking to a friend about Ronnie. They said that Ron was basicly good person and I wanted to agree because I think he really did what he though was right. I reminded my friend that this is the person that dumped the lunitics out of the asylums, did not enforce the Sherman Antitrust Act, fired air controls, sold missles to Iran, funded paramilitary groups, ect ect. I really don’t think Ronnie had that much to do with the fall of the USSR. If he did have a lot to do with it, then I don’t think would have come as such a surprise. Ronnie was a good speaker and was inspiring, and that’s about it. My family was poor at that time and Reagan didn’t care about families like mine so, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for him either.

    It was a slow erosion of the awareness of the electorate in being a check on governmental abuses and excesses. The coup d’etat and reign of GW, the cowboy prince is the culmination of forty years of acquiescence to the covert dictates of the government by the American people.
    The Fall of Rome
    The government knew they had us,
    when they could keep the herb illegal,
    although we knew it was medicine.
    The government knew they had us,
    when they could sell us the Super Bowl as something more than a football game,
    although we knew it was just a football game.
    The government knew they had us,
    when they sold us the war, wrapped in a red, white, and blue bow.
    although we knew the Domino Theory was bullshit.
    The government knew they had us,
    when the Warren Commission sold us Lee Harvey Oswald, instead of the coup d’etat,
    although they insulted our intelligence.
    The government knew they had us,
    when they could hide their military budget and use it for, whatever,
    and ask for more, whenever.
    The government knew they had us,
    when they could send their cowboys out to tame the world and just create more terror.
    And so we come to our dilemma,
    to watch TV as the world burns,
    to eat TV dinners and get fat on fast food and watch our children get fat,
    and watch our children come back in body bags from all parts of the world,
    and also die in our streets.
    Oh, Government of the Eagle, once proud carrier of the torch,
    where have your powers gone?
    Your power was with the people,
    and your power went away,
    when the people knew you had them.
    That’s why Mark Levine and his compadres are so important—
