  • Re: 2012 Presidential Election Part II -- Charlotte, a National Treasure or sede vaca

    My liberal friends call me a republican. My conservative friends call me a hippie. I'm not going to label myself, just swing when it comes to issues.

      When I moved from Palo Alto to Boston I somehow went from being a "liberal" when I left to a "libertarian" when I arrived.

        Typical thinking of today's democratic party. If you are moderate they call you a looney right.

            I like the way George Carlin said it better: "Anyone who drives faster than me is a maniac, and anyone who drives more slowly than me is an idiot."



            The questionnaires that perform some kind of broad-spectrum affiliation test score me highest with Green and second-highest with Libertarian, so go figure....I believe in liberal values as delivered by the private sector. In the 60s and 70s we were protesting against Nixon and too much government power, today we are still resisting the concentration of too much government power. Back then it was a liberal thing to do, today it is a conservative thing to do; yet it's exactly the same protest against exactly the same danger.

              That's a very interesting observation. Guess I'll need to get me a tie-died t-shirt or two!

                Just because I dont think you should be able to shoot illegals on your front lawn and support the rights of women to keep your hands out of their uteruses doesnt make me far left. Sure compared to you I am far left but compared to you your Idol Paul Ryan is far left. If you knew anything about me (which you prove you dont every time you pull your head out of your *** to try and speak) you would know how asinine your opinion of me truly is.

                    It doesn't work well to write a highly whiney paragraph and then throw a smiley face on the end.

                    I only assess you by what you say on here and interact with me on, and in those cases you always (to the best of my recollection) stake out quite liberal positions and support politicians who push those positions. Show me otherwise. I'm not some newb you can dupe. I've seen your postings for a good many years. It's not becoming to pretend your something you're not. I'll lay off though. It's obvious I hit a nerve.

                      That's funny cause when I think of conservatives the last thing I think of is less government power. Seems to me they spend all their time on what women do with their bodies, which two people are getting married, and who is voting in an election.

                        No, you are making the mistake of putting yourself at the center of the ruler. I would say Handy and/or LynahFan are about the closest thing we have here to centrists, give or take an inch. FlagDude and some of his brethren are getting a few more inches to the right. FF is whatever Drudge tells him to be that morning. You are about 3 feet to the right, but perhaps because Pio is 37 miles to the right you see yourself as centrist.

                          Why would I care wha a Newb or some crusty old dude in bumbphuck, Arizona thought...it isnt becoming to speak about stuff you dont know about. We dont agree socially because I dont take my laws from the Bible. (also, I find it funny that conservatives poke their nose into social issues at all since it is none of their business what private citizens do...funny how the GOP loves Big Government when it is about their issues) You have never read one thing I ever posted about the economy though and it is blatantly obvious. Just like whenever you see a Scooby post you just assume what it says you do the same to me which is why we all catch you on your bs "observations" all the time. You assume I am some tax and spend liberal out to socialize everything and pay for nothing. That would be true if I didnt want to cut pretty much everything under the sun. (Military, Department of Ed, Homeland Security) Also I want massive Welfare Reform, Tort Reform up the yin yang, Social Security reform amongst a bunch of other spending cuts. I also want everyone above the poverty level to start paying their share as well not just take it all from the rich.

                          All of these things I have said multiple times in the past year, and you are either illiterate or willfully blind...either way I dont care you arent worth the effort. (your ability to "discuss" things went away long ago) You go on living in your ****ed off little world scared that the big bad boogey man is gonna get ya. You and Old Pio can have a blast talking about the good ole days when women werent allowed to have an opinion and the ****ed Commies were everywhere!! The rest of us in the real world will do just fine without ya.

                          The smile in the post was to make you feel better since me and my Commie, Liberal, ACLU Loving, Socialist, Israel Hating Atheists are coming to destroy your major and kick your carolers in the balls next Christmas.

                          (dont bother responding, you are added to the Ignore list right next to 5mn_Major, Old Pio and that creepy St. Cloud Fan who liked underaged girls...HOORAY!!)

                            I'd expect such an analysis from someone far down the ruler on the liberal side of things. I've never seen (that I recall), Handy present arguments in favor of conservative views, but have seen him time and again argue at great length in favor of liberal perspectives. I can't pretend that I see something different than what I see.
