Hi - I hope we can end this political chatter on the list. I know that this election is pretty bitterly divided but once it is over (which might not be this evening....) we do have to go back to being just Americans who can grumble about the government to our hearts content. Part of having a discussion forum is having respect for other people's opinions and not antagonizing each other. Tom and I both have our opinions about the matters in this election - but this is not a good forum for that.

Maria, Thank you for the voice of reason. I am about to wear out a delete key because of the political drivel. We all have opinions and like to voice them, but I would rather hear opinions about coffee on this list. If I want politics, I can always turn on the tube. My only political message is that everyone should vote. BTW, a fresh shipment of coffee from Sweet Maria's has brightened our day and a sample is roasting as I type this. Looking forward to sampling the latest from your store. -- Jim in Skull Valley
Amen to that emotion! My order from SM with 2 new coffees (a Guatemalan and a Kenyan) and a Swiss Gold 1-cupper just came in a few minutes ago here at the office. That put a smile on my face!

Amen to this post: It is really not in our hands, but the Lord's. Whomever He picks, for whatever reason Tomorrow I will say Hail to the Chief! Yes, we are all Americans Now let's get back to coffee.
How about we drop the politics AND the religion (is there anything more divisive?) and then get back to the coffee? ;-) On Tue, 2 Nov 2004 14:50:41 -0800, alfred <2391> wrote: <Snip>
Maybe I'll offer a pound of SM to the person who can come up with the best haiku involving God, both political parties, and Folger's Crystals. On Tue, 2 Nov 2004 14:55:57 -0800, Steve wrote: <Snip>

Demo? G.O.P.? Both flawed, like Folger's Crystals. Viva la god shot! Do you need my mailing address? :-) -Steve On Tue, 2 Nov 2004 17:10:29 -0600, Craig Shields wrote: <Snip>
But that would have screwed up my haiku, gin! Can't let PCness stand in the way of high-caliber artistic expression. My creative reservoir is probably tapped for the next decade... On Tue, 2 Nov 2004 15:54:31 -0800 (GMT-08:00), gin wrote: <Snip>
