Many others feel their votes matter also.

Why did we allow the left to take over the education system again?

Keep in mind, this is considered a Republican ran city (well, Jacksonville is, not jax beach).

A friend sent me this - filmed on the opposite coast. (San Diego seems to alternate between Dem / Repub. mayors)

Quadz, have you seen episode 2 of john adams yet? I just finished it. Incredible. I always read of Adams's influence on the foundation of our country but seeing it in such a well directed and casted film is really awesome.

We just finished Ep. 2. - Compellingly presented.

And I had no idea folks were already attempting some form of antibody serum based inoculation back then!

Anyone ever watch the HBO series John Adams? Came out 13 years ago. I've watched it 4 times maybe, it's 7 or 8 1 to 1.75 hour episodes. Historically accurate, and produced well like a typical good HBO series. I used to have a habit of watching it every other July 4th.
Yes, it was very good. You might not think of Paul Giamatti as a good lead actor, but this miniseries showed that he's far more than a typecast character actor. I'd give it a 9/10. Probably my favorite miniseries HBO ever did. Better than Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, all of 'em.

Thanks for the recommend. Wife & I watched the first episode this evening.

 :thumbsup:

Imagine going back in time and showing that video to John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

Possibly my favorite comments were ones like, "what the hell? I'm from Eastern Europe and I could answer all these."
