      Dude, um.. You're a winner here. They didn't need our help, the germans did. And really, the germans? It feels kinda apples/orangish. There are better examples.

    Yes a peaceful outing of a dictator now lets hope for a progressive and productive government that knows it people do not want to return to the old way of thinking they want to have a fair chance at work, education, and proper treatment by the law!

    And so, I put it to you, my fellow Americans, let freedom ring, remove all beer restrictions in the world. Let us choose to purchase beer in Texas after midnight on Saturday and before noon on Sunday. Did Thomas Jefferson say, "Wait, there will be no beer sold after noon on Sunday in Texas?" And what of the French and Napoleon? Did the French send the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of restriction or freedom. The people have spoken. A government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Thank you.
