Other than the fact that every time he opens his mouth something incredibly stupid falls out, Biden is rather forgettable.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I gave a quiz to a couple of females (approx. 20-21yo) the other day. I was amazed at the total stupidity, or lack of paying attention to the questions.The questions were intended to be "gimme's". What were the questions?
1. What color was Napoleon's white horse?
2. What two sides fought in the French and Indian War?
3. Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?
4. How long did the 100 Year War last?
5. When was the War of 1812?

To be fair...
1. There are no such things as white horses. Just grey.
2. The French and Indian War was primarily fought between the colonies of Great Britain and New France, Indians fought on both sides.
3. Grant and his wife are both buried in the General Grant National Memorial, the popular name of which is Grant's Tomb.
4. The Hundred Years War lasted 116 years.
5. The War of 1812 started in 1812 and lasted until 1815.
