RE: Forwarded Emails
OK, I’m constitutionally disposed against personally forwarding funny and/or thought provoking emails myself because I’m firmly aware that my sense of humor isn’t universally shared by my friends.
That said, if you read my blog… aside from already having questionable tastes, you’re also subject to being stuck seeing what I really think.
The following showed up in my inbox today, compliments of the lovely & talented Mr Watson. My contribution aside from posting it here is limited to formatting. Fwiw, here’s the difference between a Liberal and a Conservative laid out pretty clearly:
The Difference Between Liberals and Conservatives
If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a liberal sees a foreign threat, he wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.
A liberal non-believer says he’s offended and wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he’s in labor and then sues.
A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended”.
If anyone on the same email list as myself is paying close attention, they might notice I removed the part about healthcare. That wasn’t an accident because I think our existing system is a clusterfuck of fraud, graft, and ridiculous lawsuits that drive costs thru the roof… but that’s a whole nuther post.
I applaud those sincerely interested in fixing it, a group which unfortunately doesn’t include most in Congress. Expect them to talk a lot and do nothing to fix it, and you’re pretty safe.
Meantime, the list above is IMO… pretty accurate
I don’t worry a helluvalot about offending any friends of a liberal bent, because if they’re my friend, it’s a safe bet they already have a pretty tough skin and can accept a difference of opinion.
If any of my friends on the other side of the spectrum are certain it doesn’t portray their views, then it’s entirely possible they aren’t who I’m talking about. It does however match what I’ve seen from many others, so… if the shoe fits…. :)
