You shouldn't have to apologize for offending anyone or refrain from sending out a politically-based email.  That's exactly what is wrong with this country.  People get offended by the slightest things and expect others to conform to their liking.  Screw that!  It started with gov't control of free speech and actions and has slowly evolved to individuals and unfortunately it is those individuals that continue to take away our rights in this country.  Frankly, I liked your email and passed it on to friends and family.  I personally got a good laugh out of it.   

And for anyone else on this list that did receive Jeff's email and was offended.  That's what a delete button is for.  You have a choice to either read it or not.  Maybe before you go responding to emails and telling us all how upset you became while reading it, try hitting the delete button and keeping your mouth shut!  It's call FREEDOM!  If you don't like it, then go find some other place to reside, because in the US, we have the right to pass along or say whatever we want without having to listen to people like yourself bitch about your feelings and expect others to be sympathetic to you and conform.  

Jeff... I enjoy the emails you send and hope to keep receiving them.  For the others that don't, screw 'em.  Let them remove themselves from the email listing if they don't like being a part of it.  It's their CHOICE.  And while they're at it, maybe they'll learn to have a sense of humor, too.

Sorry to all, I keep forgetting that the rock group is on my list.  I will not send anything like this again.  Sorry if this type of humor offends anybody.
