    competition is always a good thing to hold people accountable. Maybe bamaman could learn something here.

    We had better pray (to the real God with Christ his son) that the Senate switches back to Republican before the nation is destroyed.

  8. GOP = Greed Over People

    No, of course not, primaries from the far right simply allows the cream of the GOP crop to rise to the top!

    Remember, the chicken lady that wanted to "barter" for medical services using a variety of farm animals and an assortment of agricultural crops?

    A "deep bench" indeed.
