    It's funny how Michele Bachmann never talks about these obscene wars that we're fighting halfway around the world with their staggering costs and obscene loss of lives on both sides but yet she wants to cut programms for the needy in this country. How appalling!!!

  14. too busy for this

    to: blogging?- Relax. You're going to have a stroke. Leave these babies their sandbox. They need this because they don't have actual lives. You'll never see an intelligent comment on here anyway, even on subject. If you try to post something these wastrels disagree with, you will only get threats or vile comments, never intelligent discourse.

    Jazz, I want to apologize for my behavior, I only hope that you will take me seriously at some point. I will be posting under another name maybe a little more respectful to you.
