My apologies to anyone not living in PA Dutch country, who don't know what Ring Baloney is.
If you considers seafood as animals in their natural form, I gladly eat raw clams and oysters, and they're still alive when being swallowed.

I wish I had my money. As it stands the government takes 40% of it and my ex-wife another 15%. After paying the mortgage, bills, utilities, and the kids school expenses, there isn't alot left.

Are you for real? You're comparing the temporary post disaster trailer provided to Katrina victims to the concentration camps established by the War Department during WWII?

You'd be convicted of shameless exaggeration even if David Koresh and Tim McVeigh were on the jury!

Yep, controlling birth through one's will power and understanding of basic human sexual function is a very good thing.

I currently am controlling birth as we speak. I am a single person, and I'm not having sex!

Thank you. As I've said before, the Pope practices birth control.
