    Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died from a stroke


    http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/08/world/europe/uk-margaret-thatcher-dead/index.html


    Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died Monday following a stroke, her spokeswoman confirmed.
    Britain's only female prime minister, Thatcher served from 1979 to 1990 as leader of the Conservative Party. She was called the "Iron Lady" for her personal and political toughness.
    Thatcher retired from public life after a stroke in 2002 and suffered several strokes after that.

    The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money

    I guess I shouldn't be shocked to see that, in Obama's statement on her death, he obviously acknowledged the fact that she played an integral role in ending the Cold War...yet kinda conveniently leaves out that part about her railing against socialism and communism.

    MSNBC...comment???



    Race riots, brutal union buster, thrown out of her party because she stupidly suggested there should be a flat tax. Who knew Martin Bashir was such a debbie downer...

    I also do get a kick out of the differences in tone of the two AP obituaries...between Thatcher and Hugo Chavez.

    -Margaret Thatcher

    Isn't giving credit for ending the Cold War kind of giving credit for her railing against communism?

    RIP Maggie. I remember her statement when Reagan died. They always looked good together.

    Like Reagan, an eloquent and commanding speaker...



    Edit: LOL, that pic is on Begbie's rotating sig thing now. :haha7:

    Well, your average uninformed American are probably clueless as to what the Cold War was anyway. They'd probably guess it had something to do with an outbreak of the common cold and sniffles. :cool:

    I thought the Cold War ended because Reagan sold arms to the Contras and sent David Hasselhoff to sing on top of the Berlin Wall.

    I think it has something to do with the war on global warming, no?
