    Somehow I feel whoever actually wrote that meant it as a joke.
    The sad part is I read everything the way it actually is. AND I honestly feel we owe
    it all to the Democraps for making our country the way it is. But.........................
    The current administration even though Republican has totally outlived thier usefullness. It is time to overhaul the election process accordingly with new
    Terms of limit for congressmen and especially senators. As they age the corruption
    and lies seem to show without fail. It has been written for a couple hundred years
    what happens when people stay in power too long. And we have seen it.
    I pray to the LORD GOD for relief from tyranny. And GOD bless the USA!!!!!

    I disagree with the last line about the teacher named Mary.

    2006. Mary goes to court and her defense is that "she's too pretty to go to jail" (sound familiar) and is set free. 3 months later is on the cover of Playboy.
