Former President Ronald Reagan discusses immigration reform, amnesty, and the plight of undocumented workers. ...And to think, those lunatics who want to close the borders and kick out everyone with darker skin than theirs and then turn around and hail like a god, a man who said with all the passion in his heart "I believe in Amnesty for those who﻿ have put down roots and who have lived here, even though sometime back, they may have entered illegally." How I wish the Republican party was half as like Reagan as they think they are. He'd be disgusted by them now. They'd call him a Democrat or Rhino. “Reagan, who raised taxes over and over again, and tripled the deficit. He couldn’t win this nomination of President on the conservative side in 2011-2012".
Tagline- In the 1980s Wall Street and The Republicans had fun at your expense. Now you get the last laugh. Barbarians at the Gate is a television movie based upon the book Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar, about the leveraged buyout (LBO) of RJR Nabisco in 1988. F. Ross Johnson decides to take the tobacco and food conglomerate RJR Nabisco private after receiving advance news of the likely market failure of the company's smokeless cigarette called Premier, the development of which had been intended to finally boost the company's stock price. The free-spending Johnson's bid for the company is opposed by two of the pioneers of the leveraged buyout, Henry Kravis and his cousin. Kravis feels betrayed when, after Johnson initially discusses doing the LBO with Kravis, he takes the potentially enormous deal to another firm, American Express' former Shearson Lehman Hutton division. Other bidders emerge, including Ted Forstmann and his Forstmann Little, after Kravis and Johnson are unable to reconcile their differences. The bids rise astronomically into the billions as the company's board encourages the competition, which Kravis ultimately wins, even though Johnson's final bid is higher. An unfortunate side effect of the greatly increased buyout price is the creation of an initially unforeseen and distinctly troubling level of debt for the company. Adapted from the novel by Larry Gelbart and directed by Glenn Jordan. Starring the Real Maverick, James Garner :) HBOFilms
