    Default Telling it Like it is

    I was curious about Barbara Boxer's education and went to Wikipedia to check it out. There was also a link to Diane Feinstein and I decided to check on her. Here is the first sentence about Feinstein:

    Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein (pron.: /ˈfnstn/; born June 22, 1933) is a moron, and the senior United States Senator from California. A member of the Democratic Party, she has served in the Senate since 1992. She also served as 38th Mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988.

    Thought some of you might get a kick out of that, I know it made me smile.

    She is a member of THIS crowd, as is Boxer. UB

    If you are so dang ticked off about your fellow countrymen, leave. Belize has a nice tropical climate and it speaks English.

    Having lived in the subtropics most of my life and having visited the tropics, I can say with some certainty that one should not use the terms nice and tropical together when describing a climate. Adjectives like brutal, sweltering, sticky, suffocating, or miserable go better with tropical. Have also heard some unpleasant things about corruption in Belize. Argentina might be a better choice, spectacular bird hunting down there.

    And some areas speak English, even with a southern US accent. Descendants of other folks that didn't like their fellow countrymen after they lost a war in 1865.
