    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You probably missed it but they were on the ballot against Bush. The choice was very easy

    Rationing with a single payer system? I thought it was utopia thus a liberal's dream. The grass is always greener on the other side of the pond. Those riots over there were really about getting the latest Cell Phones
