Well, I can't get on the boards in which y'all congregate. I went to "ABC.go.com" and it gives me downloads. But I'm downloading them, but I can't figure out what to do after that!

Probably what I need to do is take it to Best Buy and get them to upgrade it for me, if I don't want to spend money on a new one.

BTW... one thing I'd like to do is go on that book review place y'all hang out and write a brief dissertation of why I cannot stand Mr. Bush any longer... or his family. I'm sure you and a few others would like to read that, even though I haven't really changed any of my views. But I am going to turn in my RNC card [actually I've not been a member of it, that's just a nice way of putting it] and am going to register as an independent. I'm sick of the Republican party. Also, quite frankly, I'm sick of many on the Right who are so panty-waisted, sometimes I can't stand it! I'm tired of being associated with some of the Bush brown-nosers in our society and others who pay lip service to conservatism but are really sell-outs, too timid to take a stand one way or another. I'm tired of so many wimps!

Not to say I am embracing the evil "L-word" but I have moved on beyond the "liberal" label and keeping things to the lowest common denominator. "Liberal this" and "conservative that"-- it all gets old after awhile.

I'm fed up with Bush AND the Republicans! I may sit out this next election, I don't know.

Yes, I know the posts I responded to are old and unlikely to be read. I just figured I'd have fun and write what I could have written if I had been there. That y'all spoke of me so often is quite flattering, actually. I've noticed in my absense on the RB that dear ol' Cap and WEAC, two of my least favorite persons, like to call each other "RO" or "Righton" from time to time. Wow, like, get over it already! The same old rehashed arguments, over and over!

That's one reason I dropped out of sight! I'd gotten sick of politics, and so have pursued other things! If I can figure out how to get on the boards again, I might get back into the swing of things. I wondered if I could e-mail anybody to see if they knew how I could get back in. I put the nefarious Dauggy Daddy in a search engine, found his website, and asked him if he could help me out, but he decided to be his usual drama queen self and make a big production on there, asking the others if he should give me the new addy or not. Well, of course not, dumbass! If I send you an e-mail saying I'm seeing what you are saying, but I can't get in, then obviously I have found it! I can't believe what a drama queen he is!

Recently, I looked up any references to "Righton" on those boards. In one, I found you said you figured out that Cap told Blue Persuasion about my dunce-yet-innocent "nose" comment ["innocent" because I was just playing around and didn't realize you would take offense until Rogue e-mailed me and told me I needed to apologize, that that was over the line]. You said, "I figured out Cap told you about that," because that BP bitch wasn't on the boards when she later, uh, rubbed your nose in it. Well, I wanted to say [can do so now] I think you were right. I think Cap has been careful to fill her in on many juicy details which she has used to her advantage. Once, she did that to me, too, though I don't remember what it was about... likely my illness which I went to great pains to try and erase later.

Anyway... my message to you is... never turn your back on a pseudo-Christian. The pseudo-religious are beaten only by murdering despots [sometimes the two are the same] as the most cruel, vicious people you'll meet.

Rogue may or may not be surprised, but I'd actually like to congratulate her for her contributions on the RB. I used to resent her input, but I do realize that often there are opposing POV, and I've seen her make a few good points now and then. I've thought about e-mailing her, asking if she knows how I can get on. My first thought was that I must have gotten banned, but I think really my browser is too slow. But I can't figure out how to save the new download to my desktop. The page prior to the download page gives directions to double-click on the "Install icon", but I see no such icon. Mine is a Windows '98. When I went on PI, about the same time as you, I had just gotten this PC.

Hmmm... I just accidentally typed "Windows 2000" above. Now that I think of it, the downloads give "2000" as the earliest one. Maybe that's the problem. They don't download on a '98. Yes, maybe I need to either get a new PC [I'd rather not, at least not now] or get this one updated at Best Buy.

Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

I guess we all get long-winded from time to time, eh? So much catching up to do!
