Subject: RE: BS: The way it should be......
Well, well, well....

When one examines the load of crap that so called conservatives, which they are not, are throwin' out as thoughtfull positions, one just has to wonder what they ate thinkin' with???

Liberals (I rather like the term progressives, thank you) possess a much larger pictures, coutage and heart...

Anyone can find the line to stand in.... Yeah, thre Martin's of the world are paper-carryin' line standers-in's...

Takes a lot more thought to question than to bend over...

Takes a lot more corage to stand up reather than check the box they are told to check...

Takes a lot more love of one's fellow man to stand up to a machine that wants to kill his kid in a senseless war...

Yeah, this ain't got one thing to do with liberals and conseravtives... It's all about folks with courge to think for themselves and folks who are perfectly willin' for others to tell them what to think...

My dad was a Barry Goldwater Republican. My mom a civil rights activist... Made fir some interestin' nights at the dinner table in the 60's when I was home from college... One night, my dad go so mad that he got a gun... I got my mom and my wife outta the house... He shot two holes in the ceilin' before settlin' down...

Two years later my dad marched in the Moritorium aginst the war in Vietnam...

That was the proudest day of my life....

Ya see, there is this point in folks lives where they ask "Hey, am I bein' taken'????" Yeah, my dad came to that point and. once he did, there was no lookin' back....

I like to think of progressive thinkin' like gettin' out of the joint... Like how many folks start a tunnel project to get back in???

Yeah, once the light comes on, it's on!!!
