Thought for the day ...

  1. Good observation, PC. I am constantly referred to as a "right-winger", a "Republican", and worse (shocking, I know!) because I support the War On Terror. I am none of the above, and can't get behind most of the rest of Bush's policies. But tiny minds can't seem to distinguish the nuances of a political platform or ideology, or deduce tyhat we don't all have to agree with everything that one candidate espouses.
