    Nice. Anything about the Bill of Rights is good publicity. The sooner we turn this train around the better!

    Pretty neat. I got to see them in person once - a great show! This Bill of Rights one was excellent!

    I have liked thier ecentric ways of getting you to think for a long time. This being just one of them.

    I purchased a dozen of their DVD's, after having seen them for the first time last year. Great stuff, most of it. They lay bare much of the whitewash that's been painted over many issues. And they're fairly fearless in their pursuit of the "truth" how they see it. A decent show that everyone should see. Eye opening, if nothing else. And a bulletproof barometer of gauging whether someone is truly open-minded, or just blowing smoke about that. Want to flush out the poseurs? Show a B&T DVD to a group of people.

    +1 yeah I have watched their stuff with some "Open minded" people who closed their minds pretty quickly when they saw something they didn't agree with.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    What's truly educating is just how quickly it occurs, with many folks. Often, before the first sentence is completed. Sometimes, life is grand.

    Got to love those guys, they have a way of getting their point across that is as subtle as a rock to the forehead.
