I think that many of us spent too much time watching TV. The 50's were , to us, soooooo cool. Rin Tin Tin ( Cavalry ! ) , Captain Gallant ( Foreign Legion ), Fury, Lassie, Captain Midnight, Commander Cody ( rocketman ) and many, many more. Things were so EASY when we were kids, kinda miss it. On second thought, BIER is more fun !

It was one of those stranger than fiction shows we all love so much. Can't remember the name, but it must have been all BS because I still have the taste in my lips!

Goldman-Sachs and their ilk are really running the Country...export jobs import labor no more middle-class. They get all the power. Both political monopolies are controlled by global corporate interests...Red China our new best friends...right! They will turn us into Mexico if they can. Patrons y peons. I hope the feces doesn't hit the spinning blades, but if it does I won't waste two seconds on the politicians, they're the puppets. More than a few of the puppet-masters aren't even Americans, money has no country. Their arrogance will be the end of them. A good rant always makes me feel better.

Dave, maybe you thought if the horse was buried and was actually alive.......but I don't think the horse could pull the string. What were you watching, Mr Ed?

Ah, you got me there, Michael. Good one!

Guess I should know better than to believe everything I see on TV.
