    Thanks. Sometimes I forget that not everyone is up on these things.

    Years ago when I lived in North Dakota, there was a strip club just outside the city limits that was a hangout for the college crowd as well as the folks from the local air base. Naturally there were some conflicts, one of which was an ongoing graffiti war in the restroom. The college crowd was less well informed, and their contributions were on the order of "Air Force Sucks" but there was one outstanding contribution from the military crowd that has stuck with me through the years. The air force contribution was "Vidi Vici Veni" and it saddened me to reflect that within a generation no one would understand that marvelous pun.

    General Patraeus isn't testifying in the Behnghazi hearings. How convenient for some folks. Eh?

    Yes they do, even generals make mistakes, even the great ones. You have read enough military history you should know that. Name a great general, I will name at least one mistake he made.

    No, actually I am fully aware of the Emperor Nero and his 'idiosycracies'. I stand by the post.

    Well, if Congress wants to hear from him they can subpoena him. You should call some of your Republican buddies and make that suggestion. I'm sure that will result in the revelation of the gigantic conspiracy you are all longing for.

    Of course you would..... because someone who doesn't like Obama MUST be someone who would really want to call him a negro in a "code" way.... amiright?

    Nobody is impeaching Obama.

    For.... What......

    Quit being a sore loser about the election and bringing up impeachment. People talk about impeachment all willy nilly these days, its a disgusting show of sore losership.

    We lost, Romney wasn't elected. Get over it.
