    from the jaws of victory was something to behold, something to cherish, almost as much as our ability to keep our powder dry.

    There is something about a D holding national office that causes a temporary neurotransmitter failure. Outside of office, they easily see how having power and using it march hand in hand, while saving it for potential use later only serves to squander it, and piss it away.

     Once inside, once elected, all those lessons get lost as though long term planning is something done only while having an epileptic seizure. And I should know. my mom suffers from it.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      Baby I have been here before
      I've seen this room, I've walked this floor
      I used to live alone before I knew ya.
      I've seen your flag on the marble arch
      Love is not a victory march
      It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

      Hallelujah, Hallelujah
      Hallelujah, Hallelujah

        Don't you know that it is close to bedtime someplace on this flat earth? And posting a list like that will scare the bejeezus out of those putting their heads down for the night?

        Do you WANT to be responsible for the insomnia, the nachtmares, the fear that you just caused them to feel?

        Shame, I say, SHAME!

            Sarah on the stump.

            Amazing how they (parts of your list) manufactured and shaped her public  persona. That does say a lot about their reach, their goals, and their potential for initial success.

            Given her grifter/media whore facets, she must be grinding her teeth with no ready access to "her" people.
