There you go...

insulting Americans again.

Where is your compassion for the average taxpayer to make up their own mind about Fox News?

Other side,

So insulting Americans is precisely what this essay is doing?

If so, I'm offended by the hurtful and insensitive essay, as an American.

Other Side said...

Wow, Kevin. That's pretty hilarious reasoning.

Question (nice one): How long have you been running the DQ (in Kewaskum?)?

I lived there for awhile in the late 70s, above what used to be called Jordan's Tap.
