...................If you were our President, we would impeach you. Or
censure you and fine you somehow. That sounds like a very good idea.
Perhaps I can get together a worldwide conspiracy somehow. I'm gonna tell
the whole world about you, and they will rise up and wash you right off the
face of the planet.

....................no, you did something many of us have done. We
understand. Everybody lies about sex and trunk lid badges. But we can't
just walk away from this issue. You have confessed.
What will we tell our children about things like this?

..................that's an item for the FAA. Why are you mentioning
airplanes on the Q-list? That is really off-topic. Ah HA...you are
attempting to change the subject and avoid the badge issue. Sounds like you
are impeding justice. Won't work. We have a confession.

.................Nah, I think we should donate YOUR car to Phil. As
punishment for having an ill eagle badge on the trunk. And you pay the

.........................Incidently, I wonder how Phil feels about paying
