And on that sad day
the old tattered chair became
Grandpa's life story.
I understand where you are coming from because we live in states where the far right crazies are running around naked, foaming in the mouth, in our state houses creating laws. It is going to be a long 2 years.
The glue that holds the GOP together is racism and that will unravel in the...
I know exactly what you mean, Oxy.
The Democrats tend not to market themselves as well as Republicans - I think that has a lot to do with their relative levels of fanaticism. But I'm betting on the fact that Obama is going to be thinking legacy for the next two years. I also think...
You are right, there are fruitcake Americans of all types. Some could be called 'the left'.
Try organizing them politically, it would be like herding cats. They would be all over the place if they vote at all.
Not so the Republican Party, and the faithful manipulated Base....
Then he forgot and
sat on the chair, which ruined
its rich patina.
The old man just laughed
when they appraised its value
in dollars and cents.
On the Roadshow, that

the Keno brothers.
Remember the pink guns for little girls, I mean the real pink guns?
Here it is, I found it:

Eric, I'm with you emotionally but my Virgo-ness is also telling me that there could be muddy roads ahead, or vultures swooping in from behind me. To my mind the loss wasn't in any way a good thing.
On the other hand if Obama can use the bully pulpit well, it's a teaching opportunity...
If you want to call those dumbass ideas beliefs, and that makes you happy, that's fine. But that doesn't mean there isn't a real distinction here.
There are beliefs that not testable in straightforward ways, or at all, and ultimately they deserve deference. These tend to be religious,...
I humbly accept this GREAT honor!!!
Barefooted, thanks. I appreciate your comments.
too often devolves into
Resting too assured

on a splintered chair.
Well, at least you know it's there - and there may be others that aren't part of FOG. If someone in your neighborhood has a vehicle large enough, maybe some time a group of you can take a road trip!

Just because the republicans fuel 98% of the ignorance of science doesn't mean the democrats don't do it 2% of the time. Just because the media engages in a lot of false equivalencies doesn't mean all equivalencies are false. For example imo what you're doing now is very similar to what some...
