    that make people's eye's bulge out in shock and say OMG!!  

    Then again, maybe we've grown tired of beating our head against those brick walls because it never seems to help. They just get wilder every year.

      whole "email" medium to the dark side.  There's no reason to let them steal the medium without a fight, and there's no reason that we can't pass around impassioned yet reasoned "liberal" emails too.  Just saying...

        ... never hits pandemic stage when I send out the liberal equivalent of a chain e-mail.

        "Pretty words from the Constertution? YAWN! Yeah, yeah. I've read the durn thing. Why's he sending me THIS?"

        The people who send chain e-mails to ME only seem to want to pass them on to others when they involve "an illegal" getting the what-for, a soldier giving the what-for to a mouthy anti-war liberal, bad tax math, or manufactured "proof" that someone in the Obama/Biden/Pelosi axis is a big, fat, lying hypocrite.
