*If you replace USSR in a couple of those with Terrorism this list could have been written yesterday*


*The thoughts about RATS still hold true (more so today IMHO).*

Complete, total agreement!

*Replace "Pittsburgh Steelers" with DALLAS COWBOYS and the list would be perfect! *

Ummmm, well, I, uh...ha, ha...

Actually, it's a short story any liberal would love: I grew up in a state *overflowing* with Cowboy's fans--there's precisely one major River between my home state and Dallas. One balmy day in 1974, my kindergarten teacher sent me to the office for unspecified reasons: upon my arrival the principal--a native of Pittsburgh I learned years later--told me my mother would soon be arriving to collect me, and that I was to wait in the outer office. I thought it was because of a fight I'd gotten into with a fellow I only remember as "Silly Billy" a week before on the playground. I started crying. The principal emerged from his office and said, "hey! it's just a'll be alright, here, take this"--and he handed me a Pittsburgh Steeler's hat. Turns out I only needed an immunization shot that had been missed prior to enrollment, but I was corrupted from that point on.
So, Jovial here, who's never stepped foot in the state of Pennsylvania in his life, is *still* a rabid Steeler's fan after all these years. As any good liberal would tell you: "Root Causes! The boy was warped at a young age!"
Ha, ha...

Don't feel bad about loving the Steelers. I'm a lifelong Texas and my absolute FAVORITE college team is Oklahoma! Try living in W. Texas and wearing your Sooner gear everywhere. In my later...senile years...I've actually worn it on 6th street and got away with wearing my sooner baseballcap (in uniform) to one of my guard drills so my Major (A film studies teacher at UT) would see it. Fortuneately he had a sense of humor and I didn't do that many push ups.

Kindergarten in 1974 huh? Nice to find someone my own age! :) 40 doesn't seem so bad now huh?

"...which side are you on, again? Please let us know.'

Well, I'm on the side of Freedom based on limited Constitutional gov't - not on the side of the NWO Neo-Con Bush Globalists - try reading Pat Buchanan's 'American Conservative Mag'..."

Ahh a WWII style America Firster. So may questions I'd LOVE to have one of these people answer without referring me to silly articles.

My basic question I posed in another post on this thread remains unanswered.

If Pres. Bush is not the answer, who is? Perot?, Nader, LaRouche?
