Virus scanner - AVG Free
Two Way Firewall - ZoneAlarm
File System Cleaner - CCleaner
Disk Defragger - Auslogics Disk Defrag
MS Office Alternative - Open Office
Notepad2 - Better notepad (with syntax highlighting)

Web Service Tester - Web Service Studio
SQL Tidy - SQL Formatter
View State Helper - Binary Fortress

WOW, will they actually listen to her, or dismiss her as one of us right wing extremists she is trying to defend. I admire her bravery. However, I think she will join the ranks of the other brave Republican Conservatives who have voiced their outrage and become a target of smears and ridicule. Too bad we can’t clone her, or at least steal some of her mojo for the RINOs.
Oh, and Timothy McVeigh? Stop shoveling that crap. He was one of MILLIONS who were released. Myself included. The rest of us assimilated just fine back into civilian life.
