      that book when I read it as a young girl.

      •  I think I read everything... (0+ / 0-)

        when I was a kid - even the stuff I wasn't supposed to read.  It's interesting to me how some stuff I just took for granted, and then later said to myself "now, wait a second - that's not right."

        I could be crazy, but then again, I saw this today: "House GOP aides acknowledged some of the ideas for tax reform and spending cuts are similar to Republican-backed plans. But the aides privately cringed when President Barack Obama endorsed the proposal on Tuesday, because his very public embrace makes it even tougher to sell to House conservatives."

        I don't know - I just get the impression that there's a lot of puppeteering going on that we're not privy to.

        That can mean only one thing: Republicans think all the jobs are trapped inside women's uteruses. - BiPM
