Now... seems that there were members of the Democratic party who had no problems with that either.
But yeah... this is totally a RvD issue.
OK I have to ask, whats the story with the servicemen worship in this forum?
I mean they signed up for a job for which they are well compensated. It is potentially dangerous but probably no worse mortality than a 7-11 nite worker in the hood.
Why are they on a pedestal and worshiped by many as if they are gods walking the face of the earth? I appreciate their service but I appreciate the pilot of my plane when I fly too. What's the scoop?
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. -HL Mencken 1933
