    The only thing that disappoints me is that YOU don't have the wisdom and discernment to recognize a sound horse supporter and that you, like BB, has to leverage off of what I say. I have indeed...

    If you don't think it is about politics, you should look a little deeper. I'm certainly not going to call out names and circumstances. But I'll tell you a secret: look for people living beyond...
