    @@@pete i agree with you its crazy that a lot of people do not see that obama has done a great job in office how long did it take for some in this country to realize the good that he has done and how long would it take the same party or the opposition to undo everything that he has done i voted for obama because he is a true transpearent politician and had nothing to hide but it runs in all parties to hide what they want

    John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young
    layers called pullets and eight or ten roosters, whose job was to
    fertilize the eggs. John kept the records and any rooster that didn't
    perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot
    of John's time so John got a set of tiny bells and attached them to the
    roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a
    distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch
    and fill out efficiency reports by simply listening to the bells. John's
    favorite rooster was old Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too. But on
    this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at

    John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets,
    bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for
    cover. But, to John's amazement,Butch had his bell in his beak, so it
    couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on the pullet. do his job and walk on the
    the next one.

    John was so proud of Butch, he entered him in the county fair... and
    Butch became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result.....
    The judges not only awarded Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize" but they
    also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well. Clearly Butch was a
    Politician. Who else could figure out how to win two of the most
    politically biased awards on the planet by being the best at sneaking up
    on the populace and screwing them

      As you know, they've done that to me countless times. I don't know what the deal is, but I sure wish they would straighten out their system.

      But anyway, how the heck you doing ?

      I hadn't gone back to look at that until I saw your post here. I can't believe someone at CNN finally appreciated something I put down.

    When a decent man makes a genuine mistake, he says "oops" and pays for his mistake, willingly doing whatever he can to repair damages done by his mistake.
    Not so the indecent man who claims innocence while being guilty. Who files for bancrupcy to cover his mistake rather than repairing damages done himself.
    Even Catholic archdivese file for bancrupcy protection rather than paying victims of se x abuse restitution.
    A president finally exposed is hardly a mistaker. He's an on-purposer that got exposed.

    @Superman. Would you call the Congressionally funded Viral Cancer Research Project that experimented on 50,000 imported African chimpanzees per year between the early 60s and late 70s a "mistake"?
