#8, 10 and 11 are my favorites. Me? Nah! I'm not afraid to comment on politics. It's a powerful thing and people [in general] don't like to show their views...it's a shame. I'm not surprised that some don't comment...it's not surprising at all. Most people ARE afraid to voice their opinion.

I have often thought that there is something inherently wrong with someone that wants to be president, wants that much stress and headache.

I like #10.

Junebug said...

Number 10 & 11 are so true.

DeGaule disait:"les politichiens!"
Bah ces politic people ont encore de beaux jours devant eux et s'ils sont pris la main dans des caisses d'argent sale, en France en général ils vont faire un petit tour en Amérique du Sud pendant un petit moment pour se faire oublier et puis ils reviennent comme si rien ne s'était passé! Ce sont des gens très addicts!
