See how much fun this is for everyone. Now everyone checks in to see if you will post something. I'm betting the clipart will be really good. The Fraud one was weak. It needs some kick to really be effective. But if the summary is good and speaks well, maybe a subtle 'gotcha' would work. Maybe a poll for the clipart would be good.

Last time was a let down. I'm just glad my database takes so long to sort and I have the time on this computer.

McBear, this is wasting your time.

Anybody who claims to have written a 28 page CV is either a total narcissist, a liar, or the greatest genius the world has seen, naturally birthed by a woman.

And I agree, this is getting old. However the juxtaposition of this and the story on the local news of the decision as to whether a 400 pound lion should be considered a pet certainly gives one pause, or paws, whichever the case may be.

I am guessing that editing 28 pages might take a while so I am going to go try and find some parts for my 500E. That is what needs help now.

When I told my wife I had been called an academic she was very concerned that I would try and find a set of dueling pistols or swords for such an insult. She remembered that the last time that I had been asked if I was an attorney that I started growing a beard that very day.

Later guys,

OK, so you meant to say "debt" as did I. Now that we have our terms correct, you had said that we should all pay the exact same amount, not a percentage as is the current practice. Once again, I ask how much should Alec Baldwin, Barbra Streisand and liberal welfare cases pay? Give me a figure!

Are you opposed to capitalism? You seem to prefer a system in which successful people are penalized for being successful...

Some of us were tossing this around before, and we arrived at a figure of roughly $5000 for every man, woman and child. Of course, this fantasy would have to go hand in hand with another -- the fantasy of a reasonably sized, manageable federal government.

Sooo, you believe liberal welfare receipents (most of whom are minorities) should pay half their income and Alec Baldwin and Barbra Streisand should pay all the money they make in on minute per year?

If you cannot divorce yourself from your bigotry, you'll need to find someone else to pester...
