    a gay, muslim, city bus driver with a military pension who is his local union steward would be welcome with open arms by members of the republican party.
    he has a job, serves his city and his country. Pays taxes! I'd take him duck hunting.

    In all cases I answered the questions he said I wouldn't. However with my return questions to him he did exactly what he tauntingly suggested I would do & refused to respond. Not your typical pot calling the kettle black scenario; more like the pot calling the milk black
    In response to your question as to why I dont ask your Wizard: I have found that asking the Wizard of Wisconsin questions is not very productive

    The Wizard of Wisconsin likes to throw misguided posts and hope they'll gain traction and stick. Rush, Glen Beck & Fox must be proud of him. However as soon as he is questioned or confronted with factual cogent info & return questions he responds by questioning spelling or grammar {I left some in case he wants to respond; however people in glass houses}, tries to change the subject{those evil unionistas} or runs & disappears back behind his {star spangled RED WHITE & BLUE} curtain.

    I do find it amusing on more than one level that your "Wizard" grabbed the bait and actually added my Wizard of Wisconsin moniker to his sig line
    By the way hows that Benghazi impeachment thing coming for you "Fair & Balanced" type guys?

    Didnt get to me and didn't strike a nerve. I just explained why I wouldn't ask a question of someone like the "Wizard" who has no concept of how to participate in a productive discussion; and will in fact call out others as being afraid to answer a ? that may be "embarressing to their side"; yet do what he accuses others of doing in the same thread

    Thomas Jefferson did sire 6 children with Sally Hemmings which was proven in 1998 by DNA testing. Some historians still think that perhaps some of the children were sired by one of Jefferson's male relatives. However, most historians agree that most of the 6 children were sired by TJ. He freed all of his children, but did not free Sally which has been a mystery. Google "Sally Hemmings" for the story.

    While Sally was his slave and their children were considered slaves until they were freed when they became of age, none worked in the fields. They were "house" slaves.

    For the curious, at least one book has been written about Sally Hemmings. If you go to Monticello for a tour, the tour guides will answer questions about Sally Hemmings.

    Thomas Jefferson couldn't live within his own means, seems like both parties would welcome him with open arms.

    You are an extremely angry person.
    Can't you take something for that.....oh, wait, sorry.

    I have been around here for a while.
    No one has exposed anything except their own anger and hypocrisy.

    I have never let another person (angry or otherwise) post from my computer.
    Have you??

    You have displayed your anger for more posters than me.
    Some very prominent.
    You never add anything to any conversation, just personal cheapshots and insults.
    Maybe MJH is telling you what to say.

    That would be my guess.

    If my consistant fact based opinions bother you that much, please, by all means, put me on ignore.
    Other wise, perhaps a new hobby is in order.
    Your behavior here is unbecoming.

    And again, it's WISCONSIN!!
