    I agree with you, Billy. You've got to be plum mad dog mean (to paraphrase Clint Eastwood from "The Outlaw Josey Wales") to win a battle. Probably need to be nastier and more violent than your enemy....

    Kegler,

    I agree they are as feckless as they come. I truly hope 2022 and 2024 will be horrible years for our socialist/communist "friends." Sometimes I think that they should be rounded up and...
