    No they aren't forum members, but politically minded historical figures and noted entertainers Bob Marley and Ronald Reagan share an Aquarius birthday today. Happy Birthday, wherever your spirits reside!

    His Presidency was one of the best stand-up comedy routines I've ever seen.

    I'd like to think they'd both enjoy this one of Bob's sentiments:

    What life has taught me
    I would like to share with
    Those who want to learn...

    Until the philosophy which hold one race
    Superior and another inferior
    Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
    Everywhere is war, me say war

    That until there are no longer first class
    And second class citizens of any nation
    Until the colour of a man's skin
    Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
    Me say war

    That until the basic human rights are equally
    Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
    Dis a war

    That until that day
    The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
    Rule of international morality
    Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
    To be persued, but never attained
    Now everywhere is war, war

    And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
    that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
    South Africa sub-human bondage
    Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
    Well, everywhere is war, me say war

    War in the east, war in the west
    War up north, war down south
    War, war, rumours of war

    And until that day, the African continent
    Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
    We find it necessary and we know we shall win
    As we are confident in the victory

    Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
    Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

    (well, at least the part where he says "war")

    Looking for da man
    Reagan is 92 today.

    The man did so many things, and his life ends in the cluthes of a desease that robs him of his identity.

    He can't even remember his own wife and family.

    Old age can be a horrible thing.

    On a brighter note, Axl Rose is 41 today! I guess he's not deserving of a mention in the title?

    Welcome CFC Stile, interesting first post.

    Yeah, I'd have to give Axl Rose, author of such sentiments as "I used to love her, then I had to kill her" and "police and niggers, get out of my way" a distant third to the other two.

    Thanks for the welcome, Sultan. I was mainly teasing with my post, but I think I can make an argument to tie him for 2nd (if we only use lyrics of course).

    (That's why we gonna be)
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

    and the quote
    "I want to say 'I shot the police' but the government would have made a fuss so I said 'I shot the sheriff' instead..."

    In the 80's I was never impressed with Reagan as a leader,
    though I did figure him to be a funny and charismatic man.

    I will say it is a cruel fate for a great man like him to suffer.

    Bob Marley paid the price for abusing his body for years...

    Oh really? :p

    "Back off b***h!"

    Go ahead and pick the songs that are supposed to be taken lightly and misinterpret them....... :nuke:

    You guys are funny. Good one anarchywrksbest. And Stiles, you should know by now that it is perfectly PC to talk about looting the upper classes and killing cops. But if you should injure a looter on their way out the door - LOOKOUT! The PCPolice are watching! ;)

    (PS- In Bob's defense, he didn't shoot the deputy. He could have, but he didn't).

    *Warning: Contoversial Opinion Coming*

    Bob Marley was more influential than Regan ever was.

    EDIT: Not that Regan was bad or anything...

    Not controversial at all mordhiem. Every walk into a bar in Dar Es Salaam and see somebody with their hair grecian formulaed back wearing a Reagan t-shirt? I didn't think so. Bob Marley's emphasis on One Love and world unity singlehandedly thawed out Russia and ended the cold war. :)

    Bob Marley died of a cancer that started as skin cancer. The fatal abuse he did to his body was being half white and spending his life in the Jamaican sun.
