When I was a scoutmaster, we taught our scouts to respect the president, 
and our country!  I hope you don't try to force your political agenda on 
them, let them make up their own minds.  As for me and my family and 
friends, we will vote for Bush! May God bless him.

Keeping this Mac related:  Anybody have a Clamshell iBook 300Mhz or 
better for sale for not over $300, shipping included?
