I think that a lot of King George's people cut their teeth in the Nixon administration and are even more secretive and prize absolute loyalty even above what occurred with Tricky Dick.

I'm sorry you disagree with that line

great thought

Except that nukes are the big stick that no rational government would use, but then are King George and his court rational? How do we stop the nuclear fallout from drifting over countries that are...

why not me?

I knew a man my age about 10 years ago who was a very devout Christian and was dying of cancer. He said that people asked him if he ever asked, "Why me?" and his reply was, "Why not me?" The Bible...

interesting comments

Especially about black and white. My best friend bleeds Republican and I have often thought that he sees the world and its problems in black and white. White meaning Republican and good, black...

I am proud that Russ Feingold is my senator.

He was the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act in 2002, knowing he would have to stand for reelection in Wisconsin in 2004. How easy it would have been to go along with the herd and vote...

I've read the books a number of times since college in the early '70s. If it was not for my big screen and the surround sound I would not have watched the trilogy so many times. It's just that when...

Well, I did it again a couple of days ago and on a snowy winter's day I decided to do another marathon viewing of LOTR on the big screen and it didn't end until after 10:30 p.m. I still enjoyed it. ...

Much of your argument is based upon a false premise, namely that goods made in America are inferior to goods made in other countries. First, do you know how hard it is to find any of the basic...

Well said. I like to call Walmart "Chinamart", because that is where they are intent on sending our jobs. I wonder, are those low prices really worth the cost to this country? I suppose a job lost...

I didn't say that. What I said was that we knew the guy who was fired had a lot of guns AND he seemed to have bubbles in the think-tank. Although not everybody who owns lots of guns is some kind of...

I would usually only watch the last few minutes of this show, but I saw most of the finale. There were only winners on the show and they all ended up looking good and the women looked really good.

I put up an antenna and get all my networks in HD. I got tired of the endless channel surfing always in search of something better to watch.
