Illegal Burning

This is for my friend Brandon so he will have the goods on me just like I have on him. Notice I also believe in using chemicals on my lawn!

This hastily constructed firepit is left over from my daughters 21st B'day/Going away to Africa party with about 20 of her college friends. I'm now putting it to better use.

How Things Change

Remember when President Bill Clinton sent troops to Bosnia? Here are a few quotes from Republicans back then:

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is." --Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

"Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years." --Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

"You can support the troops but not the president." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?" --Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy." --Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

Now remind me how many troops were killed in that action?
