    Re: Happy Birthday to me !!

    Many happy returns.

    Make that three of us. I was going to start a thread to register my disgust and saw this here already.

    Re: Metcalf v Caldwell (The Spladle)

    I was up in the stands. What was amazing is that when I got home, nobody had broken the news yet on any forum.

    I enjoyed debating Big. He was very skilled at stirring the pot. It took some effort to counter his pronouncements. On a rare occasion you could even convince him that he was wrong. Wasn't easy.

    Re: Hey, President Obama: Call It Off!

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Unless Romney declares that he is in favor of soaking the rich wall street fat cats with both regulations AND taxes, he has no chance. That he will never do that shows...

    Re: U.S. ambassador to Libya killed !

    Romney's immediate reaction was idiotic. He should have simply said that he suspected that the attacks were 9-11 driven.
