Re: Is Old man alright or just busy!

BA still kind of sorry about the "white trash" thing.  Sterotypng in not a good thing.  But every body got an image of what I meant didn't they?  It's all about low expectations.  We have found IOP, with the kids we hire from around here, whose families more or less live that lifestyle, that their biggest stepping stone or road block is the expectation they have for themselves.

Re: Is Old man alright or just busy!

Hey Dairy Mom, we all "discern" good apples from bad apples whether we admit it or not. The point that Gough and I were making is that its disingenuous to act as if one is above that. To have a meaningful discussion on current events, speaking plainly is necessary.

 

I just think that holding Don Kraft up as some sort of positive example of civility is laughable .....read his posts once Smiley Happy. The "white trash" term I don't mind, I only rebrought it up as a fresh example.

Re: Is Old man alright or just busy!

what makes you think I excluded Kraft from my remarks

quite frankly he twist things to suit his purposes just as much as others do on this site.

And I certainly don't agree with him about everything.

I am a Republican wannabe just can't live with some of the Republican attitudes.

I am so disgusted with Washington right now.  Don't know as there is any one there that has the good of the country at heart.

I absolutely cannot believe that after the blatting about a clean bill that all that junk got stuck in with the bill to reopen the government.

 

What hypocrisy.  Stand up and say you don't use the government and country to get what you want and then turn right around and stick in stuff you want when the other side comes to their senses and agrees to reopen.

 

Makes you believe there really is no hope for anything to get better because it is still going to be the same old politics with no one thinking about what might actually be good for the American citizens and I mean all of the American citizens.  REally do you think anybody in Washington is going to admit and act on the waste in government.  And do you think they'll realize you don't fix a budget this out of wack without cutting spending AND increasing revenues.

 

I think the best we can hope for is the voting public will increase in size and will really really take a hard look at who is in Washington and the job they are doing or more rightly not doing.

 

But I'm afraid enough people didn't really get hurt enough to wake them up enough to take a good hard look at our government.  Americans tend to take how great they have it for granted.

Bill. The truth of reality is the problem. The god bothers block there ears when it is mentioned and it is basically why they remain ignorant to varying opinions. It goes with the territory and believe it or not is heritable and in their DNA.

They discuss many subjects with great finess and reason but mention the falsehood of god and their argument has the consistency of pure air.
