    However, I must give you credit for your insatiable quest for knowledge.
    You want to know your surroundings and where if you accidently drop your car keys that you don't bend over to pick them up.

    Good reforms were rejected by the liberal electorate. Arrrrrrrrnold was a sardine surrounded by liberal sharks.

    See there....this is the difference between you and I.
    While you see Tommy as a young, up and coming, dynamic wunderkind.
    I see him as a gerrymandered political hack, ceaselessly milking the taxpayers for sustenance.
    How did you become such a cock-eyed optimist, you crazy young kid?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Yes....as much as it pains my fellow Californians (the cranky ones, anyway), Brown and the voters found a way out of the quagmire.

While driving down the road he sees this sign (Ram Rod Club) and what looks like a club. Most people think of ram rod as a boss on a cattle drive. My friend says, "Hey Rat, they have a country western bar in San Fransisco." It took me a minute to figure it out, that it wasn't a country western bar but I didn't say nothing.

    That night my buddy from Texas want to know if I wanted to check out that country western bar, I said no I'm just going to hang out in the hotel room tonight. I didn't say nothing.

    About two hours later there was a knock on my door. There he stood, red faced and said "You knew didn't you" ? I couldn't keep a straight face and broke out laughing.

    In San Fransisco, ram rodding is buggery.
    That's just mean letting a poor defenseless Texan walk into that kind of bar alone.

    Depends on one's perspective, I guess.
    Heck, you think Fawn Hall is a babe.
    She's 54.
    I see you didn't question my "political hack" comment.
    Duly noted.

    That really surprises me, but I am way across the country from you all. Anyway, Brown deserves a pat on the back.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ahh no, no he don't. He needs a kick in the butt. I live here. I should know. Between the legislature, and CARB and the governor, we, at least were I am, are under siege.
