|I agree, Our strength, personal and united, Lies in our individuality. Each of us has our own unique ideas and visions, our own opinions and beliefs. We should never look to anyone to provide them for us. I can feel the strong message and your hope for change in this. Peace to you my friend. Pierre.|

|Such is a representative democracy that we elect someone to speak for us and rally round the money. There is little tolerance for those who listen to a different drummer, and solice knowing that the outcasts and idiots come up with the great ideas.

|Exceptional work that honors the true spirit of the purer American dream, Linda. And thank you for commenting on my article "The New Crime: Wearing Dreadlocks While Walking." I've discovered that it takes more courage to make the comments you made these days. Most people are too chicken to to do it. They want to be with the "in crowd," and in the name of fighting crime or terrorism will never admit an authority figure's attitude requires scrutiny. ;-) A comment always beats just a read. LOL|

|Where is our pioneering spirit now? As we saw during the hurricanes last year, we have become so dependent upon others for everything in our lives, we don't even have a clue regarding our own survival. It is easier to follow than it is to lead and then we all complain about how we are unappreciated and underpaid. The American dream comes with the building of a better mousetrap, not with the selling of the existing ones. Excellent work, Linda.
