    Why do Republicans say that they want to shrink the size of goverment. When they get there salary from the Goverment. They are on the goverment pay roll.

    I think "early release" and "probation" are the applicable terms CF.

    Happy Thanksgiving btw.

    I don't *hate* government, but the very nature of government is to limit freedom and gain control of individuals. There comes a point when it becomes too powerful and too limiting.
