i worked at CDC and then DARPA under reagan. I was on the ground floor of HIV and know the stuff that NEVER made the 'historical' book, the band played on.
I can tell you that reagan and his cunt wife were personally responsible for allowing HIV to spread in America. Why? Because CDC went to him asking for 50 million to track those who had it. At the time, we KNEW that there were fewer than 500 ppl with an infection (turned out later, once known, that it was less than 200). We could not have stopped its spread, but we could have put it back DECADES. reagan, nancy and a PRIEST made the choice to NOT FUND THIS. 50 fucking million dollars.
And I worked at DARPA later and saw how reagan's ppl operated then. reagan was the start of the GOP that HATE AND DISTRUST SCIENCE.
The reason is that logic/science could be used to stop them from the fucking raving of the world that he was doing.
reagan was the worst. W make reagan look good. And trump? Well, we will have to see. The fact that he has Thiel and Musk is a DAMN GOOD THING.
