Ya... O.k. what ever... rant

Postby McCridhe » Wed Nov 16, 2005 10:07 pm

Conservative vs. Liberal.
Either way it's mob mentality.
Us vs. Them crap.
Some idiotic excuse to call names and point fingers.
Just another form of bigotry.
Just another division in a country and world that needs to be united.
I'm so freakin' tired about hearing about conservatives and liberals.
WOO PEE FREAKIN' DOO!
The ones that make the most noise about it have the weirdest ideas, so I'm completely confused about what either conservative or liberal is.

So I thumb my nose from my perch on the fence in the middle of the road.

:p So there! nyah!

I tend to agree with you. The loud mouth "pundits" are getting on my nerves.

Why is there a fence down the middle of the road?

To perch on, of course. It also helps keep the oleanders orderly.

"Some idiotic excuse to call names and point fingers."

Guilty as charged. I got caught up in the excitement and have thoroughly embarassed myself. I'm publicly swearing off political commentary. Somebody swat me if i slip again.

To a lighter note -- where i worked we always said of fences, and indecisiveness in general: "The grass is always greenest right along the fence, you see. That's where everybody goes to p*** and moan."

Yeah, don't stop. Does your signature not mean "I think therefore I hurt"?

Cogito ergo doleo = "I think, therefore I am depressed"

*Grin* I did grow up on a farm... I ain't worried about grass that's a little greener... but if'n you think you can gross me out that way, beware of the retaliation (all in the name of good fun of course.). My grandpa taught me well in the gross out games... :D

No offense meant. Or taken from rebuttal. Good fun of course!!
