It's getting to the point of absolute social breakdown.  Here in
Orlando the Union Thugs recently stormed the GOP headquarters, trashed
the place, and broke a guy's wrist.  I work with some nutcases who
believe all the electronic CNN hogwash thrown at them.  Both Bush and
Kerry have been here so many times I can't count any more.

You are right, the drudge report has documented the DNC 'playbook'
which tells their operatives to challenge anything, whether they are
right or wrong.  The GOP plays like, 'anyone for tennis?' and the DNC
plays like it's the end of the world, and there is one pint of blood
left, and they will cut your throat to get it (even if you own
it)....like giving a guy crack for voting a zillion times....or
forging major documents (oh yeah the media is quiet on that one now
but not if the situation were reversed).

Speaking for myself, I am stressed out because I have to hear a LOT of
political crap all day long that I don't agree with.  Stuff that isn't
true.  Stuff that is 100% emotional.  I can't WAIT for this contract
to end... Maybe I'll move to Montana for the month of November....  :)

God Bless America,
