By the way, you list your location as the "United Socialist Republic of New York". Kind of makes you look like one of those "extremists" who are ungrateful for all that the government does for you out of pure altruism...
As for my banter with Navy, I respect him and his opinion but enjoy a sparring match as he is one of the more intelligent ones on these forums, although takes a different approach to exercise and defense of rights than I do. That makes for some spirited discussion.

In rereading my government comment, I realize an error. I don't believe the government gives anything to Cathy's point. I am grateful for the type of government we have here, so long as we don't turn communist, which is the path we are on, hence my location of United Socialist Republic of New York.
