    Jefferson and Franklin would be staring at the good looking women.

    That's your opinion,thank you for sharing.

    What is this "we" thing you speak of?
    I'm not in decline,other than what goes with on naturally through aging (I'm no spring chicken).

    I don't know about anyone else,but I'm doing great.I'm healthy,I have a wonderful family,and I am doing well financially.
    I see that my neighbors seem to be doing quite well for themselves every time we all get together for a b-b-q.

    None of my family has ever had an abortion (that I know of).
    And homosexuality is a non-issue in the Verthaine household.

    If homosexuality and abortion is effecting your life or anyone else's,I'm sorry to hear that,but that really isn't my problem,now is it?

    What effects my life is what people want to eat, can they pay for it,and can I supply that food to them at a profit,and can I make them satisfied enough to use use my services again..
    What effects my life is the welfare of my family and my business.
    Like I said,if more people paid more attention to what is going on in their own lives (and the things that truly effect them),instead of " what that other person is doing that has absolutely no effect on their lives",maybe this country wouldn't be in decline.

    They created the two party system. When we moved down to a one party government after the War of 1812, it created more problems. The nation purely voted on a regional basis, no one had a national message or wide national support. After that decade, we had the two-party system from then on.

    I don't know why people keep pulling out this idea.

    Cook us some of your gumbo, read us some good stories, and tuck us in would be nice, though I prefer that my feet stick out from under the covers if you do and I prefer my gumbo without crawdads in it

    I would be among the 71%. If you look at us now and compare us to the past we have become a lazy, arrogant, and stupid people. And the goverment has done many things that are unconstitutional (ex secret laws). Do you think they would be dissaponted in us, and is so why?
    I'm also part of that 71%.

    Sure,no problem.

    Gumbo (see server)-$13.95.
    Storytelling-$12,000.
    Tucking in -$2,000,000.
    (all taxes will be applicable).
    Will that be cash,check or credit?

    Who's stopping anyone else from doing the same,other than circumstances and excuses?
