I need not tell you Sebe, but holding on to negativity is not good for you.

However, per my man Funks comment: I give your exuberantly verbose response, a bizzaro world fielder's choice.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Nov 15, 2013 at 12:30 PM

I can see that! Not that I am sounding the retreat, but...sebe....should I, JimmyMack, EVER do anything that even comes close to your feelings to the DEMS and not being in a forgive or forget mode, will you at least afford me the opportunity to explain myself as I am not in shape for a carpet bombing attack like the one happening here.

For the record: I am staying wid my team til the final votes are counted tho. No matter which side prevails in the end. Yellow dawg til the end.
