T_O_B, I can't believe they would make them wear Lipschitz designed berets made in China.

This is what is wrong with America today.

Elton John sang Pinball Wizard by The Who. I have no idea what pinball machine is. I listen to that song whenever I sit and watch epileptics drown in the river.

At Citizenship Camp at Rock Springs, in the 70's, there were wonderful speakers. Just amazing, Wish I could remember who they were.

"Why on earth would they wear cowboy hats?"

To protect their heads, necks, and eyes from London's notorious sun.

Why on earth would someone watch an epileptic person drown in a river?
Is that an Irish thing?

Well, I guess Hitler, so I can try to figure out what he said that made all those Nazis do all those horrible things. Or I could just shoot him and save the World alot of pain.

I think it is a national disgrace that our Olympic team will be forced to wear french headgear at the opening.

Actually, seeing is part of it. Anyway: Probably FDR, Churchill, JFK, MLK. Of course, Lincoln at Gettysburgh and anything Crazy Horse would have quoted, but those are rare. "This is the lodge of Crazy Horse." (isn't one, but I love it).

Strange question to begin with. Like the question which gave the answer away yesterday.... "I'll take 100 degree days for $100 Alex." That would be after "S" Words' and "Therapists" for four hundred "Alex." - Not Parker.

I don't like to look at speakers. Must be a public speaking thing. That is my answer.

BTW. Does this new platform allow for PM's like the ones that used to be monitored? I would like to drop a message to someone on here if possible. It came from Alcatraz, I think. And it said that I had to send it to 12 friends for my wish to come true. Was a very rar'a message.

Rather listen to a speaker instead of just see them.

Martin Luther King Jr. A half century later, his sermons inspire this ol' atheist.
