James and Selena, Two cartoonish figures, both blessed with strong degree's and extraordinary intelligence that implies that their opinions cannot be challenged by lessor mortals. Amazing. How foolish to think that rights and civil liberties are being trampled on. How foolish to be concerned by the paramilitary attitude and appearance of Police departments. Just because history has repeatedly produced repressive and authoritarian governments has no bearing in America. How dare anyone challenge the infinite wisdom of our government. Fascism and communism. Foreign concepts. Drink any alcohol and you should be shot on the spot. You liberals make me sick ! I am joining ranks with "James" and Selena". We are prefect. Only our opinion matters. You are all fools. What a JOKE.

No not all fools just two, Jimmy and Stewy. Hubert H Humphrey stated “We believe that to err is human. To blame it on someone else is politics.” This is why I started to answer the Patch. Due to political losers who love to blame others for their screwed up life. There is danger in the habit of blaming others; it soon becomes a breeding ground for other negative tendencies such as holding a grudge, resenting, anger, self pity, etc. All this is cancerous and will slowly eat up your general well being over a period of time. Jimmy and Stewy, suffer what is called ‘victim’ mentality. Listen I do care about you guys, please get rid of the fact that you think that your life sucks because other people make your life suck. YOU are responsible for your life, and nobody else. But you’ve been hiding from that responsibility. You’ve been blaming your unhappiness and incompetence on others. It’s time to stop blaming others and taking responsibility for your own life. That’s when you really start to live. Stop Being A Wuss – Take Control Of Your Life. Taking responsibility for your life is scary, no doubt. It places a big bulls eye on your ego, and exposes your ego to *shudder* failure. Blaming others because you have screwed up your life is socially contagious, according to a new study. The result can be detrimental to everyone involved, particularly in a small town like Elmhurst, researchers say. Hey guys sorry that you live miserable.

Hey guys I wrote the last comment in LOVE!

I live a very happy and contented life. Being concerned about the stater of our Country or local politics is simply being a good and concerned citizen. Maybe I should worship at the alter of sports, reality TV, and celebrity. I forgot, your superior "intellect" should make me withdraw in order to not be put down and not have my self esteem shattered. Funny. I have asked Stew to meet for coffee although he never responded. I will make the same offer for yo and even Selena. I do not mind people who honestly disagree with me. Being open minded is a positive characteristic. Don't worry, if you decline I will not suffer from rejection. If you do show up, you can even wear a uniform.
