    Well my husband loves opera and he is more intelligent than I am.  So who knows but perhaps since I have listened to and attended operas with him I have become more intelligent!

    Not everything wrong is the fault of the Democrats and I have said as much before. However, the last several years has shown that most of the troubles we have experienced, falls directly on the Democrats. Especially the socialist radical ones. Do the research. :)
