    Where have the “I don’t know there hair color today” girls gone? I can’t learn a darn thing when they don’t post. We need to get some disagreements going on this old blog or Stevie will be out of a blog job. Is everybody so happy that they don’t want to argue. It must be true, Obama has made everybody happy.

    DAVE, I ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WERE A FAR LEFT WING LIBERAL.
    “WHAT IN THE HECK IS THE WORLD COMING TOO” LET ME GUESS, YOU THINK
    HILLARY WILL MAKE A GOOD PRESIDENT TOO. I WONDER WHERE BILL HID THAT CIGAR IN THE OVAL OFFICE??

    DRONE IS WATCHING YOU DAVE MOORE

    Dave, I agree with Stevie; you must be off your meds. A couple weeks ago you were talking about that other brand and now your praising Obama. I think you need a good sniff of racing fuel to get your head straight. If Terry doesn’t have any, I still have some left over.
