$100,000 donation to the American Red Cross. That's less than $7 per employee.  Geez, mighty big of you Mr. Bagboy.  I guess he should be counting his pennies.  Rumor has it that the State of Massachussetts and the SEC have a little surprise for the good old boys at Edwards.

It was more than $7 but I'll be fair, with my donation they will not be naming a school in New Orleans after me.  But if I can put a couple of insurance tickets together....hmmm.....VotedforKerry Senior High School has a nice ring.  But seriously, I was asked at my office to donate and if they need more my wallet will open gladly.

"VotedforKerry Senior High School has a nice ring"
Why would you want to doom every kid who ever attended a school named like that?

Isn't that the school that uses purple instead of red ink since red can damage self esteems and doesn't keep score at the football games because everyone has to win? 
They also I think teach two classes called, "How to Blame The World For Your Problems" and "Big Government, The Answer To Everyones Problems."

Hmm, I changed my mind, I think I would rather have the school named after Sniper's alma mater, "VotedforBush School for the Mentally Retarded"  You can thank me later.

Purple ink lol..that's a good one.  I hear the liberals at some schools are actually doing that.

Not a bad idea, VFK!

Q.  What did they call it when you were committed, er....attended there?
A.  It was previously known as the "Starka School for the Mentally Retarded".  Thanks for stopping by and asking.

Speaking of AGE, how in the world is Bagby, Kelly, and his band of merry managers going to find a way out of the hole they dug.  Denying everything is considered a defense?  Let's put these guys on the stand and see if they have the guts to perjure themselves in front of a court of law.  The Pru guys came clean and they are still getting jail time.  Tell Kelly, if one is going to lie to the SEC and put it in writing, you better make sure all your managers and employees tell the same story.  All it takes is one person to start opening his mouth and your alibi is toast......

Doesn't it make one wonder?  All the talk from the various firms about how they care for the client, the morality lectures to the troops, and all the while the upper echelons acting as though they were minor deities, exempt from the rules that apply to the mere mortals.

Alas Starka, we find some common ground and I could not have said it better.

It's a toss-up as to which is more lame; Democrat policies or Democrat humor 
At least there's no VotedforDukakis High School

You're right, Democratic humor is pretty lame.  Republican humor is hilarious.

You're right, those are absolutely hilarious...and one of the reasons I like W...he's such a common guy and he reminds us all that no one, even the president, is perfect.
Thanks for the laughs, VFK...

Not bad, but Kerry was funnier;
"You bet we might have." --Sen. John Kerry, asked if he would have gone to war against Saddam Hussein if he refused to disarm
 
"I actually did vote for the $87 billion, before I voted against it." --Sen. John Kerry, on voting against a military funding bill for U.S. troops in Iraq
I guess what makes Kerry's quotes funnier is that they weren't just errors with the language, which everyone can make, they showed his nature true.

Just curious on what you are referring to here and the case against Pru?

Look up "A G Edwards + market timing" in Yahoo.  But it is worse than you can ever imagine.  It involves alot more branches and managers than just Boston.  They have yet to clean house.  Like I said it only takes one person to start opening his mouth and this house of cards with begin to fall.  When AGE f*cks up they really f*ck up.  I will leave it at that.
