According to you, according to your perspectives. Even Bernie Sanders
will say "I have a strong disagreement." mindful of his power and
authority on Capitol Hill. Humans make mistakes 15% of the time. It's a
good thing to keep that in mind when talking about what you feel are
rock-solid certainties. There is a 15% chance you are wrong. Group
Therapy is a good thing. :) Ric

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
