I fly straight and level...just the way I post.

So you have low expectations? :P

I was thinking nothing better to do. For a single guy he is here a lot.


Oh, now that's mean. I have two kids who are with me most of the time, and I post when I'm working, which is most of the time. Saturday nights I can usually find something better to do.

I mean the analogy the same way wings used his.

You know. I agree. Behavior in school and the sports people play is an important indication of leadership qualities. W was a drunken, coke head, cheerleader in school. And we see where that got us. So I'm on your side now wings. It is an important quality in our leaders.

wings you don't mean to tell me you think Mr. Romney is going to bring his money to the table if he is elected? Hate to break it to you but he is going to be spending your money in virtually the same measure as Mr. Obama. If not more.

Focus on the important topics here.

How Romney's money is spent, bad.
How many houses Kerry owns, good.
How much Edwards spends on a haircut, good.
What Kerry did in high school, good.
