Being a former cattle rancher was a poor excuse for the latest in a long line of questionable ideas from the President for keeping track of guest workers coming to the U.S. from Mexico.

Once rung, the Bell of Binalatongan cannot be Unrung... and according to Legend, if I ring this Bell, the Powers of Mangatarem will assemble to help smite all of my enemies!

I know what you're thinking. "Did he ring the bell six times five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Posted by: Rodney Dill at March 23, 2006 05:11 AM

Yeah I ooze manliness...and Iv'e got the Bell(s) to prove it.
