    question: if you could live forever, would you and why?

    answer: "i would not live forever, because we should not
    live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever,
    then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever,
    which is why i would not live forever,"

    Sorry Marla, but I don't think I would even do as good as he does if I were president. That's why I don't attack our government leaders. (at least not the federal ones.)

    You didn't seem to have a problem attacking the previous administration. I think my three legged, one-eyed dog could do as good as Bush does.

    Thank you. It seems like Clinton is fair game to these folks, all the while wearing blinders to "their" president. "they" can have him.

    I honestly don't remember doing that, but I do remember posting the presidential candidates, Bush, Cheney, Brown, & Kerry dressed in drag, and a toy voting booth for Florida.

    Didn't mean to offend. Lost my job due to some of the new "tax incentives" for the big companies. I feel very stronglyabout this administration and some of the things they have "accomplished". I was referring to the original post where you mentioned Clinton by name. He was federally elected and it seemed like you "attacked" him. Again, didn't mean to offend.:kiss

    I thought they were funny. Thanks.

    They ARE funny.:chuckle And I didn't intend for my "Bushisms" comment to turn this into a political thread.........there are enough of those in the Current Events forum. My sister gave me a calendar for Christmas a couple of years ago that had a Bushism for every day of the year, and I still get a kick out of it.

    Of course, if I had to make my living running off at the mouth, I'd probably sound like a blithering idiot at least half the time myself.

    Fran, I apologize.:imbar

    no offense taken from either one of you. i realize it's easy to get upset with our leaders, especially when our livlihood is affected. i only placed the post up there as humor with no political issues attached. and marla, that's the reason why i no longer post in the current events section. it's much too hot for me there.

    Hi Fran...............The funniest part of that entire thread is all the education those particular "celebs" have had, yet they still say the dumbest things. I'm sure their parents are proud of them all, and KNOW they spent their money well on their college educations.

    Well, I thought they were very funny.
