Oh-oh, John. Please, please don't YOU predict any Republican wins, at the mid-terms. I do like your columns, though. I will say again, for my own part, I paid plenty in income taxes -- luckily -- all of my work years. I never got a "benefit," "entitlement" thingy. No inheritance, either. I also did the required military service. None of that bothered me a bit, still doesn't. And, so far, no DUI. Is this a great country, or what? I think I am in the majority, by a little bit.. I learned to not complain or blame others, just go play golf, and continue to ogle the girls.
