[quote] Let me repeat for the slow learners.... parties to a lawsuit subpoena records from non-parties every hour of every day somewhere in this country. And non-parties move to quash those subpoenas. If the Court doesn't quash them, then you can get your jimmies rustled. But as of at least the ...

Courting your vote would be a waste of his time. You will research his stances on issues and will watch the primary debates. Ultimately, you're going to vote for him because of what his stance on these issues is. You will forget about this period of neglect when the time comes. The best use of his l...
