If that's their claim it's hardly the oddest one that I've heard.

I can get an equivalent tone out of my tele and don't like the feel of the Gretsch body. You should go play one.

Not everyone loves the cut, but if you do, that's a solid deal.

This is a symptom of a creeping problem with most of our European allies. They have slowly been shrinking their militaries and most have little hope of standing on their own without a lot of help. As more austerity measures are undertaken in Europe, it will only get worse.

You always say things like this when challenged but you only post liberal things, and mostly you post sophistic, silly things that read as if they were cut and pasted from undergrad liberal blogs. I am going by that. I don't have anything else to go on. Similarly, if I were called "conservative" by someone and I...

Classic bircher tactic to call everyone a lib. I am a realist. I vote left and right based on issues. Markets are the right way to do most things, but not all. Lower taxes are better, but taxes are still needed. If that makes me a lib in...
