Myself, back when I was still young and stupid, to see if I could short-circuit some of that stupidity.

Bill Gates. First question: Windows? What were you thinking? Then I'd kick him off the bench and make room for Steve Jobs.

Great pick! Wish I could do that too - but my young and stupid self would probably not listen to me.   :chairbang:

And therein lies the rub, no?  Youth is wasted on the young, who squander it, and wisdom on the old, who are no longer in a position to benefit much from it.

Yep.  Don't tell me God doesn't have a sense of humor.

Robert Heinlein

Issac Asimov

God - of course.

Satan - he'd be pretty neat to talk to.

And finally - my friend Ari. Just to tell him I love him then sit for a while.

Jesus, I will have an eternity in conversation.

So, I would say Saint Teresa and Padre Pio.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Yes

Of course.....that's a given.   :beer:

Would still love to talk to Ronald Reagan though.....seeing as how everything he did positive for America is being systematically broken down.

Took me a while before I could think of a serious answer: Mark Simone. The most interesting man on radio. Mark has interviewed everyone from entertainers to politicians. From Giuliani to Gingrich, and Frank Sinatra to Jerry Seinfeld, he's talked to them all.

Depends.

Would there be firearms involved?

Bless you.



I would also talk with Mom and Dad, and with my uncle George.

All had tremendous impact on the quality of my life.
