Jeff from Jersey; yes New Jersey from somewhere in the Garden State

The April fool joke ranks along with what Orson Wells did one autumn evening. The trouble was it was too darn realistic. Especially with the quotes from the Justices. As one wise woman said to her husband a long time ago, *taint funny McGee. All the best!

Brian you and the ACLU will only be happy when we have a national tragedy, a massive attack. You hold these people up as heros, they are traitors. Abe Lincoln held people in prisons in New York Harbor during the Civil War, Mail was opened during world war two.

We are at war against an intellgent enemy.

Once we are attacked, you will run episodes on the intellgence failures and pooh pooh the government.
