## Compliments

MGySgt Edward S. Renner USMC says:
"There is always time for sensible persons to speak on AOL Answers. It is good to see a refreshing and positive voice here, with real fact and proven insight. We have to dig through the rubble to find that occasional bit of common decency and common sense but it is always well worth the digging. Continue to post. We have need of decent persons like you here to offset the shennanigans of the one token leftist."
American Spirit says:
"The most important skill we have is the ability to get along with others. You have done so admirably, yet some others will not get along with you. You mastered the course material. I'd say you are fit to graduate once this session has ended."
Gene Smolin says:
"Nothing can repress the spirit of a biker, and nothing will dull the drive of a physicist. There are times I envy you, Trampo. Would that I had your resilience. AOL Answers is all the richer for your presence."
Fred Guenther says:
"Don't sell yourself short, Trampo. Please get in touch with your nearest university. Although it is late in the game, I see a Ph.D lurking in your very simple words."
Fred Guenther says:
"Our only leftist on AOL Answers spews the same racist garbage constantly. I see that she has been harassing you as bitterly as she has me. Perhaps there is the making of a postgrad in you after all: you certainly have the tenacity to stay on course regardless the hate games of mindless detractors."
stressed says:
"Trampo UR a real American. Scares Tadpole 2 mindless fear. Tadpole hates America, sides w/ Obama. 100% disloyal like all Dems R."
Gene Smolin says:
"Trampo, bitter leftists make those whom they attack all the finer people. You have a talent, to make the complex into something simple enough for a layman to understand and apply. So did Einstein and Feynman. In a way, you share a talent with the greatest minds on the planet."
stressed says:
"Trampo = 100% American. Dangerous here & now. Glad 2 C others still have balls. Maybe some good comes out of it."
Fred Guenther says:
"Leftists will always be a day late and a few ions short. It is good to see some folks are still sane, sensible, and to be trusted. There is plenty of good work out there for good people: only leftist bums have to worry about starving to death on the unemployment dole."
