I'm sorry, where in my post did I say something about idiot americans?
Where did I say I was surfing the web from work? I wasn't.
Where did I deride someone who had a difference of opinion?
I didn't even deride someone who thought that George Bush was a middle
class family value person.
All I said was both candidates are idiots with no clear leadership
skills and how the last election had the same options and we deserve
what we get.
I work 50 to 60 hours a week. It may not be behind a grill flipping
burgers and it can be just as physically draining, but I still manage
to watch the news or read the newspaper to see what goes on every day.
I can name several (but not all probably) executive level cabinets in
the government, I know who my governor is (only lived in this state for
a year) and who the governor, senator, and representative are of my
previous state. I don't have the flag memorized yet here but Kansas
has a latin phrase meaning 'to the stars through difficulty' on it. (ad
astra something, I could google it but oh well).
