I KNEW it, DoT!!!

"Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example." ( The US military )

So would anyone want their boss to have as much authority over them as the typical sergeant has over a private. Would anyone want their company able to tell them when to eat, sleep, and how to make your bed?

You know there is a society that runs more like a military than a free country. They call it North Korea.

Jane, early voting in Fla started just 3 days ago. I don't know where you got your information but I think it's in error.
Gingrich has been drawing big crods in Fla.
SARASOTA - Newt Gingrich drew a huge crowd at an afternoon rally in Sarasota today, where he predicted that "people power" will triumph over money in next week's primary.

The former House speaker was referring to the vast sums of money being spent on Florida's airwaves by his chief rival, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

According to some estimates, as many as 3,000 people gathered to listen to Gingrich speak at an airplane hanger in Sarasota -- probably making it his best-attended event of the 2012 cycle.

"You have to imagine looking out over this crowd to see how it makes me feel good about Florida," a beaming Gingrich told the crowd, shortly after arriving on stage at 2:30 p.m.

"I predict people power will beat money power in Florida," Gingrich told his audience, a clear -- if repeated -- reference to Romney's heavy spending in the state.

This is probably a sanitized version of NK's joke:

A kilted Scotsman was walking down a country path after finishing off a considerable amount of whiskey at a local pub. As he staggered down the road, he felt quite sleepy and decided to take a nap, with his back against a tree.

As he slept, two young lasses walked down the road and heard the Scotsman snoring loudly. They saw him, and one said, "I've always wondered what a Scotsman wears under his kilt."

She boldly walked over to the sleeping man, raised his kilt, and saw what nature had provided him at his birth.

Her friend said, "Well, he has solved a great mystery for us, now! He must be rewarded!" So, she took a blue ribbon from her hair, and gently tied it around what nature had provided the Scotsman, and the two walked away.

Some time later, the Scotsman was awakened by the call of nature, and walked around to the other side of the tree to relieve himself. He raised his kilt...and saw where the blue ribbon was tied.

After several moments of bewilderment, the Scotsman said...

"I don't know where y'been laddie...but it's nice ta' know y'won first prize!"

Also, from where I found that joke, a good one about government (LUN):

From a Fox News article (1/22/12) about Florida early voting:

Florida officials say in excess of 225,000 voters have already cast a ballot in early voting ahead of the state's Jan. 31 presidential primary.

Early voting across all 67 counties in Florida began Saturday, 10 days before the election, and ends on Saturday, three days before the vote. As much as 40 percent of the vote will have been made by Election Day, officials predict. The state elections board said so far nearly 37,000 people have gone to the polls while the rest of the votes have come from absentee ballots.

Looks like the 40% number is an estimate of the early voting expected by election day.

Yes, that makes much more sense, CC.

NK

mockmook-- correct. the more vulgar version and scot's accent help the humor...

Rick Ballard

The January 21 start date for absentee voting means that the full impact of Romney's drop was in effect from the first day. That's not particularly good news for Governor Romney.

Sara

Me, I graduated with national honors but with the lowest conduct marks any honors student ever got..

I got straight As for all academic work and then the teacher would give me a B- in Conduct, the lowest grade possible that would keep me from being kicked off the Honor Roll, which was a constant threat hung over my head.

Sara

Not manly

Now attacking someone's manhood. Pretty darn desperate.
