Ship Shape

As I write this, '60 Minutes' is on the TV. They are reporting on
ship dismantling in Bangladesh. Oh the poor peasants!
They are exploited, underpaid, their homes poisoned, their
environment spoiled. It's my guess that the people employed are
just happy to have a job. Just more liberal reporting. It's all crap.
Please remember this when (if) you vote on Tuesday. They are showing you free
enterprise at its most basic, and yet the libs (60 Minutes) are telling
you about all of the terrible results. It's "Bizarro World" coming at you
right from your nightly news, night after night. Don't believe it.

Turn off the TV John and go to bed early. Resistance is futile. We are taking over the world. Believe it.

Did you see the "Obsession" special? Muslim extremists are taking over the world. Believe that!

Edit: It will be on again tonight at 10:00 EST, Fox News. Check it out.

It's all Clinton's fault.

Yeah, Fox is running it 5 times this weekend in a vain attempt to terrorize the electorate. Asked why they chose this weekend to run it five times they explained that it is an important new documentary and it is critical that we see it ASAP. They neglect to mention that the film is a year old

I took your advice (long day for an old guy), and BTW, I do "believe it".
