". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Ron Reagan Jr. Let Fat Drug Boy Have It

Ron Reagan Junior: 'Limbaugh Hasn't Had a Natural Erection Since the Nixon Administration'

Go Here for full story plus links to audio and video.

What is also kinda cool about RR's discharge here, is that he gets in a reference to what Whoopi Goldberg called Glenn Beck's lying ejaculation about her and Barbara Walters: "a lying sack of dog mess," which got loads of media attention.

These guys are the model for the kind of loser we experienced going off on us this week. There is absolutely no point in attempting to engage with them in any manner that involves facts, intelligence, information, bibliographies, research, etc. If they are backed into a corner where everything they see show them to be wrong, they flip off and start racist, sexist and personal insult bs. That's who they are. No point, none at all. So either you have to take the route of RR and Whoopie Goldberg, or just stay so far away from them that they are effectively isolated in their bubble of hateful solipsism.
