Oops, ya got us. Somehow that point got
past us. I guess we'll just have to pack up
our tents and get out of Dodge. By high noon.
It would certainly be unheard of in this country
to fight to get a law/rule changed because we
are more enlightened people now than when the
law/rule was created.
Yep, that must be why slavery is still legal.
Because, God knows, it was not a majority
view among the entire country to abolish it.
The same goes for women not having the legal
right to vote. That certainly was not a popular
idea among the majority of the country either.
Yep, since it's a rule I guess we can't do
anything about it.
And that's my last word on that. Amen.
My apologies to the list for my, uh, sense
of humor. I haven't had my morning coffee yet.
