Gratitude owed to 'Star Wars'

Posted
Monday March 18, 2013

Do you remember the left wing opposition to President Reagan’s "Star Wars" project? For decades the project faced constant attack, but thank God the work has gone on. We now have a ship-borne system that can shoot down missiles shortly after launch, and another system that can destroy reentry bodies as they fall through space towards their targets.

The launch point? North Korea. The targets? San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Hawaii. Homeland of the left wing.

I think the left wing owes conservatives a big thank you.
