TL, you get up on that soap box, any time you feel the need .... and I'll run cover for you!
I can't help but notice that some of the um...uh ... er ... "disagreements" in here recently is due to MY statements (( I'd like to say Rochelle made me do it ...but to be honest... I'm a little afraid of her! Hee hee hee )) that I made about Cali having ULTRA liberal politics and the environmentalists are way too strong here.
If I can borrow the soap box for a moment, I'd like to explain a little further. First, I enjoyed the HECK out of Thorman's post of liberal sayings. I loved the "tit for tat" synergy from anyone, I loved someone adding their own idea's ( whether they agreed with me or not ) and I enjoyed reading them. I didn't find it offensive ... I didn't find it "anti-conservative" ... and I didn't find it to be starting a fight w/me or insulting me....but these are just my
I am a middle of the roader - neither republican nor democrat... but probably lean a little more over to the liberal side of things. Maybe that's why I don't get upset ... because neither insulted camp is MY camp. ? ?
As far as 'ultra liberal politics' - I submit the names of Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Leon Panetta, Moonbeam Brown and a few others. These people push way to hard and too far ,.... in MY opinion.
I am an environmentalist ... but sometimes things get pretty squirrelly here in Cali with groups using terrorist tactics, to which I disagree with. I agree with PETA ... but would never throw blood on somebody or blow up a lab.
I'm thinking ... if anyone was offended by the liberal sayings ... then it's the message and not necessarily the messenger. Find exactly what offends you in the sayings and start there ? Have your say and let your voice & opinion to be heard as well?
