"It ain't what we don't know that causes all the trouble, It's what we do know that ain't so". Can't remember who said this but I like it.

J Carlton, Calgary

jim, you're paraphrasing something Reagan said. The truth is doing it's best to prevail. We have to keep shouting it.

L. Hanson, Edmonton, Canada

Why would anyone quote Ronald Reagan, except to make an example of the crimes that he committed against his own people. Why there is still people that revere this criminal is beyond me.

J Carlton, Calgary

Ya know Hanson, in your seething hatred of all things "not Liberal" you lose all credibility as a sensible person and plant yourself firmly in the the ranks of of rabid socialists. Socialism is a disease like eventually kills its host 100% of the time. And I don't think you'll find many of the regular posters here advocating for the Bush's and Reagans of the world, nor will you find them advocating socialism. You see, some of us understand that the "entire system" is rotten and that includes the so called Liberals and the so called Conservatives. Rotten rotten rotten...

Classic Twain. And given how long the masses still follow the customs and traditions of the ruling classes, I suppose the Truth will forever remain ever-present yet routinely ignored.
