Father-in-law passed away, bad enough, but the lead up to his death was, unfortnately, very ugly. Hospital for one month. then brought him home to hospice. The two weeks we had him at home my brother in law moved into their home to "assist". Without going into detail ( I could write pages) lets just say I'm lucky to have not ended up in jail. Its just a shame that the last two weeks of his life had to be so horrible........although I dont think he was fully aware of all the goings on.

    Then on top of all that crap, my house started beating up on me. Found a "nail pop" in my bedroom wall. Figured I'd drive a screw, mud it and be done. Oh hell no. Went to drove a screw into the stud.....nothing there. Opened up my wall and foud an infestation of carpenter ants. Carpenter ants were there because of rotted studs, studs rotted as a result of a leak.
    Opened the wall up from the inside out to the brick. Sprayed wall with hose and found the leak coming through a mortar joint. A FRICKIN MORTAR JOINT!Tuck pointed my whole house, replaced the window as a safety precaution, and rebuilt the wall. During all of this, my refrigerator started leaking, my hot water tank went out, sewer drain backed up Feel like writing a country song.

    Anyway enough whining, hope everybody else had a good summer
    You know what happens when you play a country record backwards, right? No, it's not satanic messages.



    You get your job back, your dog back, your wife back......

    I think you need to take ahold of yourself.


    But, when I was a lib, I knew a lot of guys that thought they knew a lot about this stuff, and it wasn't until I freed myself from the brain police that I began to see things as they actually are. For example, your assumption is that I thought Bush did a great job. Now, I've never said any such thing, but your liberal fantasy world insists to you that this must be true.

    Wake up, brother.

    Actually, our Founders thought we should have our OWN goals, and the government should stay out of the way, by giving the government limited powers and responsibilities, and we, the people, would secure for ourselves, "the blessings of liberty."

    It is for that reason that people are still trying to come here. Everyday.

    Wow that's a stretch.

    I deeply wish you would know what you are talking about. If we were in a "jail," why would the world still want "in?"

    Eh?

    Let freedom be defended, and let many more taste it for the first time.
