    Good thing he found something he could do. There's more than one way to succeed. I just wish he presented his best side more often and the stupidity less.

    Bull**** and facts do not coexist easily. He's doing what he knows best!

    Link corrected to my post #106...Re: "white paper"

I think everyone should read this paper to get a real, no-politics understand of what's at stake.

    No, they don't. But we have a lot on both side of the ilse these days trying to do just that. Hell, they are doing that.

    Yes, but is there anyone in that category that has made as much money at bull**** as Rush?
