I think we can start to ignore them. They are irrelevant to the work this country faces. They are jokes. They carry Bush on their backs. Not one of them has come up with a constructive solution to the problems we face and the people will make them pay for that.

I'm feeling really good about the Republicans these days! :-)

2. I'd feel better if it didn't seem as if they still have the short hairs of
corporate media in their smarmy grip.

4. I don't think that will last long. Obama's comment about Rush was
not just off-the-cuff. He is starting something.

7. You can be badly harmed by a Blank Pistol
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 11:18 AM by ThomWV
This is an honest to god fact, blank pistols (or "Starter's Pistols" as they are sometimes known) discharge a rim-fire cartridge with no projectile to make their noise. However the explosion still has to vent and generally, while they don't have barrels, they have a relatively small drilled hole that faces forward and through which the hot gasses are expelled - its where most of the noise comes from too. Many of the cartridges use a 'wad' of some material to contain the very small charge of powder that is used for the explosive, could be clay, could be chalk, could be wax. At any rate it too is expelled and if it hits you it can do serious harm. I don't think you could kill anyone with a blank pistol but you could certainly blind someone. Just thought you'd like to know.

A downed Republican can be a very dangerous thing too.

10. I know what you mean - it gives me a warm cuddly feeling too

could do. Talk about feeling safer!

18. They were fireing blanks before
Thankfully, many figured that out and now not everyone is ducking anymore. Unfortunately, too many still are.

20. Love your turn of phrase! It's no wonder your son's such a good writer.
He came from good genes. :)
