Daily here too.
Someone above spoke of the freedom of speech here.
That freedom is here because it is exersized w/ great responsibility.
There is no such thing as rights w/o responsibility.
When we were blessed w/ our 1st Amendment it was in a polite society.
"An armed society is a polite society" to be sure. If it is not polite then is an oppressive society.
The best example of that polite & responsible society is our Declaration of Independance.
Jefferson wrote "with manly firmness" about all our grivances but was still very polite.
Should we of this good board ever devolve into a society of rude, crude, & profane speeech then the Mods of this board will have to pick up the check reins too instead of leaving them loose & letting us work w/ only an occasional Gee & Haw.
Merry Christmas
