You really don't like them, do you??? Well, thats O.K., I don't either. This primary season begins the process of seeing which gang of bandits constitutes the legal government of this country. And you know what??? Whichever group of bandits wins, we're screwed whatever.

Wow! I just had a horrendous flashback to my childhood days, before I ran away from home. My devilish baby brother always gulped down way too much milk. And every night in his gurgling stomach, there was a very nasty colloidal suspension collision. It would start as a low rumble, accompanied by spurts of New Jersey swamp gas; and soon, the small swoosh became a whopping whistling whoosh, and then, a humongous Big Bang!
