    Blunt objects have been updated to tazers, and they are being used quite liberally. Every time a cop uses his tazer 3 times, he should be required to be tazed by the public 1 time, just to keep him honest.

    Good point, Ken.

    Very funny Logan. On the same note, may I add, "drill baby drill"! No pun intended!

    The beauty of this site is that we all get to express ourselves. If we all take to heart what others say and ponder these ideas, we will all find at times that the other persons position has much merit. We can learn from each other, and adjust our own minds. These are acts of maturity. A child is one that cannot yield his position without throwing a temper tantrum. By being mature and respectful we see that we all have much more in common than we differ. Then we can unite in effort and make constructive improvements in the overall human condition. It is up to us, since our 'leaders' have shown no such desire. We can, and must work together, or else all will fail. Whether we believe it or not, we are our brothers' keepers. It is required of us that we always improve on what was given to us. Peace.

    The blunt object (McCain) certainly used his skill yesterday - I am ashamed that the Dems fell for it.
