    My image of Becca is shattered. She finally slipped up; you don’t call your next hot commodity a “dim bulb.

    Except of course she doesn’t realize that Jeff actually believes he really is the Red Rascal.

    Do you blame all your failings on conservatives?

    “A normal person stubs his toe on a chair, curses the chair for being there, and then forgets about it. A neurotic person stubs his toe on a chair, curses the chair for being there, and then throws the chair out so he won’t have to look at it. A psychotic person stubs his toe on a chair, curses the chair for being there, gets an axe, chops the chair up, and then goes looking for more chairs.”

    That’s the way I heard the distinction defined.

    When it comes to castles in the air, I prefer Henry Thoreau’s remark: “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

    But as it whether or not we have neurotics or even psychotics posting here and elsewhere, I am sure we do. Anyone who sweepingly denounces a hundred million of his fellow Americans with sneers and insults against “you conservatives” or “you liberals” definitely has something wrong with him. To the degree we have all become polarized and pitted against one another, the whole nation has become, to that degree, neurotic … or even psychotic, as polarization tends to destroy the very thing that everyone claims they are trying to save — America.

    Anyone who claims President Obama is a Muslim Socialist out to destroy America deserves to be denounced in the strongest terms possible.

    Not just denounced, but reality checked. The President is, if anything, a moderate Republican and, to all appearances, one of the better people to hold the office in decades.

    I had Religion in mind when I first wrote that, but it seems to apply more and more to Politics every day
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Sadly, I see very little difference between the two, anymore.
    To wit, the Governor and Attorney General of Virginia imposing their religious views of women’s reproductive rights on the medical profession and the women of the state in an effort to eliminate abortion clinics.

    I heard an evangelical preacher interviewed on television a while back.


    “When I began, I thought politics was a great vehicle for putting my Christian principles to work in the world. I discovered that when you mix politics and religion, you get politics.”


    I think he got that right. Keeping them separate is as much to protect religion as to protect politics. Maybe that’s what someone else meant when he said that “my kingdom is not of this world.”

    What’s the difference between a conservative and a progressive:

    A progressive would give 10% of his/her income to try to save the world from destruction. A conservative would try to charge for it.

    I like when you laff all the way to the bank.

    And yet, surveys show that conservatives are the ones who give to charities. Progressives try to force others to do so, through government.

    Now the amusing close the arc is when his father and publisher find he’s being sued by the CIA for revealing operational details, and that all along he’s been working for Duke’s PMC firm, and that when he vanishes for a few weeks he really ISN’T out chasing women at local bars.

    D’oh!

    He is also a cash machine for Random House. Never insult the cash machine.

    @Linguist

    Maybe we object to sin… you know, fornication, adultery, murder—all that old-fashioned stuff. If I have the right to murder my own child, why don’t I have the right to murder someone much more inconvenient and annoying? Like a certain narcissist who thinks he can do whatever he wants to our country? If Obama gets reelected, I can only say we deserve it and move to Africa.
