"I wanna talk!"

Over at Vodkapundit, Stephen illustrates why Hope, Change, and a pair of rose-colored glasses doesn't move the ball down the field...
A painful lesson that should not have been learned the hard way.

What the heck is Obstreperous? Guess I'll have to google it, although I feel like boycotting google since they are obviously editing their search results now.

Rita - use GoodSearch (http://www.goodsearch.com/).

Proceeds benefit the school, church, or community organization YOU decide you want to benefit. Yes, there are ads, but at least they are identified as ads and not "focused searches."

Rita, if/when we meet, you will know "obstreperous".
Cary, thanks for the suggestion. To avoid Google I've been using Dogpile, but I'll take your suggestion because of the charity angle.

Thanks for the search tips.

And after reading the definition of obstreperous, I knew exactly what it meant. It fit my brother, Crown n Coke to a tee back "in the day". Sorry C n C.
