^ I'm beginning to think, anymore, that the phrase is oxymoronic.

Well, if one ever shows up, we'll all have to promise to be really kind to him/her. They're rare as hen's teeth apparently.

Never forget!

"All right, quick pop quiz here for you. Was Winston Churchill a real person? You might be surprised to know that almost 10 percent of British citizens think that he was a fictional character. This is according to a new survey published in "The Independent." A whole lot of people have trouble telling fact from Hollywood fiction, apparently.

Take a look at this. Was World War II, the Nazi offensive, known as the Battle of the Bulge, was that fact or fiction? Well, it is a fact. But 52 percent of the surveyed say fiction. The Cold War? 32 percent say that never happened. Ghengis Khan, Mongol conqueror? 38 percent say that he was made up. And get this, a full 11 percent say that Adolf Hitler was a fictional character.

Works the other way, too, by the way. According to the survey, 57 percent believe the mythical King Arthur was real. 27 percent say that Robin Hood actually existed. And Conan the Barbarian, yes, 5 percent of those surveyed say that he was for real.

How about "The War of the Worlds," the invasion of Earth by the Martians, 6 percent believe that that one happened. And 3 percent say the battle of Helms Deep from "The Lord of the Rings" actually happened. And there is that 1 percent that believe that cyborgs really did exterminate humanity and "Battlestar Galactica" is a fact. There you have it.

"The Independent" calls the results of the survey sad and depressing.

I really want to believe that George Bush is a fiction, a bad dream.

Your judging what you believe to be intelligent thought on something that is opinion based. Just because doctor so and so of govt office "A" said it you want us to believe it. When we site govt office "A" as a source you refuse to believe it because it is evil Bush's gov't office and it is all a bunch of lies. All that was needed to be done to resolve this was for Osama to provide the documentation that was being requested. Simple for the proper person to obtain but still no help from him. The only reason we have continued to raise the question is because of the obvious stonewalling for a answer.
Democrats and Republicans are never going to get along or see eye to eye on anything. The only difference is that when we disagree with you you call us idiots. When you disagree with us we do not feel the need to berate those of a different view point because after all... This is still American. And you are entitled to your own opinion. At least for now. We will see what happens in the next few years.

NEW YORK — Most Americans believe in God, heaven, miracles and angels, and while the numbers are not quite as high, large majorities say they believe in hell and the devil.

The latest FOX News poll finds that more than nine in 10 Americans (91 percent) believe in God and almost as many believe in heaven (87 percent). In addition, 84 percent say they believe in miracles and 79 percent in angels.

What about the dark side? Almost three-quarters of Americans (74 percent) say they believe in hell and two-thirds in the devil (67 percent).

As Halloween approaches, the poll also asked about ghosts and witches. A third (34 percent) believe in ghosts and a quarter in witches (24 percent). In addition, almost four in 10 Americans (37 percent) say they believe in astrology and one in four believe in reincarnation (27 percent). Hardly any say they believe in vampires (4 percent).
