    Hello, saywhat.
    Well, the Republicans DID say that they'll extend Afghanistan indefinitely, so they're talking about it...

    A young man from the city went to visit his farmer uncle. For the first few days, the uncle showed him the usual things – chickens, cows, crops, etc. After three days, however, it was obvious that the nephew was getting bored, and the uncle was running out of things to amuse him with.

    Finally, the uncle had an idea. "Why don't you grab a gun, take the dogs, and go shooting?"

    This seemed to cheer the nephew up, and with enthusiasm, off he went, dogs in trail.

    After a few hours, the nephew returned.

    "How did you enjoy that?" asked the uncle.

    "It was great!" exclaimed the nephew. "Got any more dogs?"

    Good morning, Kenney!
    The Mormon brouhaha is similar to what JFK went through because of his membership with the RCC; there, however, the similarity ends.

    If my 'lingo' sounded anywhere like that of Palin or the tea partiers I sincerely regret it. That is the last thing I want to be said about my posts.

      This is a troll who used to pull this garbage last year...he's been around a long time and he jacks all of our names.
      Known for his insipid way of saying "my goodness, tea party lingo", blah blah, one could say "shoehorn" and he would call *that* tea party lingo.
      He's also known for posting a "good post,thank you" under another jacked name.
      He'll get deleted, along with all of the other posts this very prolific troll writes.
      Just another day in paradise.

      1) You troll badly.
      2) You are an overwhelming idiot. It's as simple as that.
      Good grief, you must be a fan of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman with that Tea Party lingo of yours.
      This is not the forum for such language.
      Those various personalities of yours with the reading comprehension problems must go.
      It's as obvious as the wart on your forehead that you are a hiacking troll of miniscule intellect.
      You must go.
      It's as simple as that.

    The Repubs did echo Cheney's '100' year stay in Afghanistan and that I think was in passing. We do need more focus way thing have been going wrong.
    good day all. See you folks somewhat later.
