NOTHING to what I would be if Clinton were a Conservative or Republican.
And don't bring up Nixon - I would have impeached him for putting on price
controls, but many of you out there are too young to remember those days.

Lighten up, you liberals, I just couldn't resist pointing out some of the
similarities that came to mind.

Actually, I have said many times that Wagner was a great composer (not the
greatest by any means) but he was a despicable human being worthy only of
everyone's scorn.

Also, members please notice, I have not stooped to the liberal tactic of
personally attacking anyone of you list members. Shame on YOU - you are
trampling on my First Admendment rights.

That's enough of this.
