    Unless, of course they are attempting to somehow discredit Democrats; I mean about real things like worker safety, fair wages, environmental protection, and on and on.

    Dick Nixon ran in 1968 against a straplegged Democratic Party. The Viet Nam War was unpopular and the sitting Democratic President didn't have a clue as to how to get us out of it with honor and announced that he wouldn't run for re-election and further wouldn't accept a nomination despite his wishes. That's honesty, my friends. But Tricky Dick went further. He promised to get us out of the Viet Nam War which he did (I applaud him for that) and he also promised to balance the federal budget (he didn't do that) and bring responsibility to the industries that harm our environment, our economy and our American way of life. He, in my opinion, failed miserably on all those.

    A Republican colleague of mine in 1970 announced that the EPA and OSHA acts would pass, marginally, but pass they did but they would be so onerous and ill conceived they would also be rejected by the American business communities and even the public within a year of their passage. My colleague was right and wrong. The EPA and OSHA acts were passed despite the overly cumbersome clauses that were placed in them by the Republicans and their ulteriour motives to get them totally rejected.

    As a testament to the soundness of the EPA and OSHA acts they are still with us thirty someodd years later. The improvements are "no thank you" to the Republicans and reflect the true integrity of the American People, again, in my own opinion. Given the prevailing Republican mindset, as I saw it in the early '70's and even today, we would all still be earning (earning, ain't that a kick in the ass?) about a dollar an hour for shoveling 80 pound loads of shit with a 50 pound shovel and doing it in a spray of 111 inhibited Tricloroethylene because it makes us high and forget how dangerous our job is and about how we don't have much choice insofar as getting new gigs and besides our livers and kidneys are old folk's concerns. I don't expect most of you to really understand all that but I know that I understand it. I'll do my my best to answer your questions but I will not entertain frivolous pandering or critisism.

    I could go on, but I think this is about enough to begin a conversation.

    Catch you on the upbeat!!!!!!!!

    I must assume that you don't have a serious thought about this, jimnyc. Were it not for the fact that you are the accepted leader of this message board I would not have acknowledged your ridiculous reply.

    You're the dickhead that said you aren't going to bother with people that have criticism. I'll leave you here to discuss this with yourself.

    You once lectured me about "personal" attacks. And now you call me "dickhead" and you demonstrate that you don't know the difference between "your" and you're". I think you're educated far beyond your ability, jimnyc, as I consider most Republicans to be. Why don't you comment on the points that I raise and refrain from your personal indignations, jimmy?

    I believe I had it correct. Maybe your old ass needs a refresher in reading comprehension? Can you dig it?

    Because all I would have would be criticism in response to your long winded drivel, and you said you didn't want that. You'll notice I spelled that CRITICISM, not "critisism" like you did in your original post, putz.

    You've proven my point, jimnyc. Integrity is not your forte' or the forte' of the party that you favor.

    And you've proven yet again that you are an idiot. You can stop now though, we get the point.

    Please enroll in reading comprehension courses and learn how to spell before calling out others. :laugh:

    Do you mean integrity is not an issue taken seriously by Republicans because it happens to be a charaterisitc not actually an issue at all?

    Maybe that's the problem with some contemporary democrats; they think integrity is an issue, and not something upon which you base your life.

    Does anyone seriously believe President Clinton had any integrity? Not by the definition above certainly.

    So do you mean the republicans make an issue out of pointing out their democratic rivals lack integrity? Well, I suppose I would have to agree with that.

    Of course. Real things....

    First off, my miss-spelling was intentional. I just wanted to check your level of piousness. As far as comprehension is concerned, I'll never understand dilemmas of the working classes and common folk when they so consistently vote against themselves. My motto is "Educate the uneducated, motivate the unmotivated and free those that desire true freedom." Democrats won, although just numerically in 2000, and Democrats will win overwhelmingly in 2004. There just can't be that many stupid people unless they are being unfairly influenced by corporate media, don't you agree?
