    Point. but there are better.

    Stop raining on my parade.

    Imagine you're in London around '42, and the shelling's just stopped for the night. You're not gonna say "well, who knows, maybe they ran out of the small bombs", you're gonna celebrate and be merry!

    Even if Bush appoints someone as bad as, or worse than Ashcroft, there will still be a precious few hours, or maybe even days, where our Constitution isn't being erroded by the attorney general, and I'm willing to cherish those hours or days.

    Anyone wanna put wagers on which will be the only Amendment(s) that Ashcroft's replacement doesn't trash?

    I'm gonna bet he leaves #2 alone, and he might keep the one that ended prohibition, but other than that, I dunno...

    Waste, I think it is better to prepare for the big bombs. Specially if you know that the bomber just got permission to do as he pleases!

    Lemme have fun just for tonight. I'll sober up tomorrow and build a bigger shelter.
  12. Nov 9, 2004 #11
    Yeah, i aws gonna say the one that ended prohibition.

    OK - maybe the Ashcroft as a 'future Supreme Court nominee thread' - can wait for tomorrow.

    I have relatives there. They're great. Winnipeg is a bit cold for my tastes though.

    Me neither.

    I just read on somebody's post at Slashdot that Ashcroft is resigning to prepare himself for the Supreme Court. What's the deal?

    Maybe Winnipeg isn't that cold.
