I was there, Don.  I was in that glittering band at the Hemisfair gate. 
I've laughed at the Tour-ons (what you get when you cross a Tourist with
a Moron), I've pulled my drivers license out at a restaurant on the
RiverWalk and said "I -LIVE- here!  I want the LUNCH menu, not the
DINNER menu!", I was at Shakey's Pizza, listening to the live Dixie-land
Jazz bands (banjo, horn, bass, drums) drinking pitchers of beer... and
of course, no reminiscences would be complete without a mention of
riding the Rocket at Playland Park...
(all of which begs the old and oft repeated question: "Why -CAN'T- we
have a SATLUG-ETC area, again?")

and now, here in the real world, people want to take all that away with
cyber attacks and a current administration that is jacking up the bill
that our grandchildrens grandchildren won't be able to pay off.

What 'good times' are our kids going to remember when they look back at
their 'good ol' days'?

With all of our technical advancements, I fail to understand how we've
"progressed" when the basic human rights are being violated by the
administration of what was once the most powerful nation on earth.


"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy
out of freedom.  What one person receives without working for, another
person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to
anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody
else.  When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to
work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about
the end of any nation. 
You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

~~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931
