A lucid post.
That was very lucid, Rick. But it does lead to the question of which of the three schemes you favor, as well. And I would still like Brian's answer. Because we need some schema. We have t...

Which plan do you support?
"My gal" *snicker* Take the hint, dude- I'm right-of-center. What I am NOT is a mindless Randroid. Pelosi sickens me. Not to mention that she has "Crazy Eyes." Or mayb...

Universal Health Coverage
Claiming that universal healthcare coverage is somehow going to sink the US economy is farcical when you consider that most of the rest of the world does it. Granted places like, oh, Germany reall...

Not a survival situation
You're sounding a little Unabom there, Matt. Sort of hypocritical of me, actually, since I'm often accused of the same thing... :) Some of my Soldiers even gave me a copy of the Una...

Diphenhydramine isn't a bad choice, really, if you're ok with a pharmaceutical.
