Response to Original message
31. Thank you!!! I could have posted this thread myself except that I am hated and reviled around here
because I have posted the very things you stated in points 1 thru 16-sorry I don't want Christmas cards, a pony or care about what movies Obama likes.

I would add a point 17 of my own and that's my great concern about what Obama is NOT doing about Global Warming.

So again thank you because I am so god damn sick of the bullshit, lies and innuendo that goes around here and how others try to silence and smear those of us who have legitimate concerns with the direction the Obama administration is going and who only care what is best for this country, this planet and humanity.

I was alerted on yesterday to the point of getting a quite nasty warning and that's NOT what this website should be about. It should be about getting elected officials to do their job FOR the people. Nothing more, nothing less.

I now have a very very long ignore list.

Huge K & R from me! :thumbsup: :applause: :thumbsup:
