No, it wasn't mine...

No, I wasn't there (found this on the web).

Maybe one of these years I'll go...

If i remember correctly the "Surplus" was a magical number changed almost daily using the then economy as a model and projected many years into the future of continued growth. Even the media was laughing at this because the administration kept changing it so often. We will never get there because congress will not lower their spending because we are the golden geese that keeps giving them the gold. Every thing they spend was earned by some one else. We keep electing the same people and expect different results. How can it be changed?

Hey... Not everyone knows a 50's era school desk can protect you from a nuclear bomb.

I clicked "yes". Did I get it wrong?

I don't know how the flag came up. Was that in your sig before I got to this thread? Anyway, this is how I see the issue of flag burning.

Did you hear recently that a guy in Russia got arrested by the cops, shot in the head, and dumped out of the car because he had a website that complained about the cops? I think that we have a good thing going here with what we call freedom. I can talk all the crap I want and no one is going to send the cops to cap me and dump me out of a moving vehicle. There not supposed to, anyway. They did it to TuPac, but that was an exception to the rule. In any case, I can think of no better way of demonstrating freedom, the freedom that many people have fought and died for, or campaigned for, or protested for; than burning the flag and NOT getting arrested or shot dead. That's what freedom is. Burning the flag represents freedom.

It's an icon. You shouldn't give it any sacred value. Burn the ****ing thing and think of all the people that made that possible.

Sadly, the arrest of journalists in a private residence in Minneapolis prior to the RNC this last week for no other reason than suspiscion of organizing a protest and intending to video tape it, smacks of a police state. They literally knocked on the door. Peaked inside, then stormed the place without probable cause of anything, handcuffed the occupants and detained them without providing cause - THEN they obtained a warrant hours later to search for something that they already knew did not exist. Freedom?? Not in Minnesota anyway.

Actually, it was to protect you from the broken glass when the windows get blown in. Of course, you have to have the time to push all the desks together and get under them. (JoeBob remembers fondly playing with the girls under the desks during air-raid drills...)

Our '50s era desks (and they really were '50s era...my school was built in '56, and it was about 4 years old when I started going there) WERE pretty substantial. Writing surface inch thick with masonite top, then pressed steel underframe with cubbyholes for books and stuff. Heavy steel legs with flat, slidey feet. Pushed pretty easy over polished linoleum floor when we pushed them together.
