TXS-ALAMO Oops, sorry. I just found out that the Colbert Report is only part of a comedy show, on a network I don't receive.

TXS-ALAMO TDW, I never heard of the Colbert Report. It's in what medium? What network?

I look forward to your publication of, "A Communist Sailor's Manifesto".

Not familiar with the show you cite.

The Colbert Report is one of my two favourite US TV programs, the other being the Daily Show. No surprises there I guess. Whatcha expect from a bleedin' 'art liberal.

cheers mate, avagoodweegend.

(You know sometimes these debates become quite heated and perhaps a tad personal. I've been guilty of that myself, I admit, but it shouldn't be so. Underneath it all we are here cos we love sailing, boats and the sea. We should always remember that despite the disagreements we do in fact share a common bond. It's nice therefore to throw a 'cheers mate' at "t'other side". Perhaps it sounds somewhat hypocritical but I hope not.I don't know about the rest of you but I have as many conservative friends as liberals. Well, in truth he's a schizophrenic. )

Now, where were we you old reactionary you.........

Friday Evening in Sydney Town and it's way past beer o'clock. Time for me to sink a few.

If anything, it should perhaps be made harder to vote thereby weeding out those serious about their democracy from those who thought Burger King had opened up another register. Just a thought.
Hey man, even an old reactionary like you would probably have been unimpressed except that he was slaggin a Democrat.

BTW, don't suppose you (or anyone else) caught Colbert last evening ? Love that program. (Maybe we get it late, it was the show about China)

All very well and good to make it harder to vote but your encumbant would be disenfranchised.

Cheers

TD
