Guess all those years spent busting my backside, taking risks, taking care of my family and making sure my wife and I can sit back, relax and watch the world go by surrounded by kids, grand kids and good dogs was just a waste of time huh?

    A willingness to form tactical alliances on issues without expecting or requiring ideological agreement on reasons. These alliances may take the form of agreement on an action (build a dam) for different reasons (you want a recreational area, I want flood control), or horse trading in which I support your cause in return for your support of mine
    There is some of the compromise I am talking about.

    I'll vote for a hike in welfare if you vote not to kill the 2nd admendment

    sures its a stretch but many have voted for bills because they wanted 1 aspect of it while detesting the others.

    I did the same thing, Bruce. Well, one thing is for certain: We have kept our pride.

    Although the answer to that is subjective, you should be able to recognize greed and excess when you see it. How about Tyco’s Dennis Kozlowski with his $6,000 shower curtain, $15,000 gilded umbrella stand and $2,900 of coat hangers for an example? That would qualify in my book.
