If they're socialists, they're damn incompetent ones -- real socalists

Well, I have no reason to mail her, she's not my rep in congress.
Instead, I have Bill "Birther" Posey (R), who isn't likely to be
re-elected, and doesn't even bother to send me the "loookee what I"ve
done for you!" mailers.

And that is how Harrington convinces himself that he's right - he
simply ignores any fact which he doens't like.

I wonder if Neil has noticed NO ONE has backed him up on anything he has
said here, yet he still believes 99% of the world thinks like he does...

I've got NO real problem with that. I honestly have to say though, I am
VERY glad they made smoking illegal in public buildings where I live.
I've had too many nice meals ruined by a smoker at the next table who
seemed to be waiting for my food to arrive to fire up a smoke and blow
it at me while I was trying to eat. Then after he finished his smoke,
ruining my meal, he would leave. Why couldn't he leave and then smoke?
Or at least notice someone was eating. Notice the smoker would always
put out their smoke when THEIR food arrived..
I can see in a bar why people would like to smoke while they drink
though. But as in the above, if smokers had used just a tiny bit of
common courtesy, this probably wouldn't have been outlawed.
