From The Mailbox

From this morning's mail,
(Thanks RG!)

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a black man or Hispanic are conservative, they see themselves as independently successful.
Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A liberal will demand that those he doesn't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
(Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.
If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward the link to it so that his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

Wow... I won't forward the link because I hate spam. But, I could talk about this all day long. Remember, not all liberals look and sound like Nancy P. and Keith O.

Trampus-

1. I'm not fond of spam either, hence when I find a goodie to share I blogs it...

2. Your comment is somewhat ambiguous...
Care to elaborate?
Does you agree of doesn't you?
(This is the "talk about this all day long" concept.)

3. Maybe not all of them, but from the look of opinion polls at MSNBC, CNN and the Lamestream Media, His O-ness the LightBringer Barry Hussein would have us believe that The Left and most of the Center is holding hands, singing Kum-by-ya and are in complete agreement with all policies handed down from On High, and they ALL sound like Pelosi and Olbermann.

Disagree?

Make your case...
(Ans see if you can do it without changing the subject like you did last time.)

I guess I was trying to make the point that the word liberal and conservative have become bad words. Liberals are now EXTREME left and conservatives are EXTREME Right. However, I think that likely only defines about 5% of the populous. We're all either liberal or conservative. Those who call themselves independents are merely avoiding having the label. I'm a liberal, but as you know I am hardly extreme left due to simple policies such as guns and death penalties. Now, I will admit that I don't watch FOX news and that I primarily watch CNN. But, that email that you posted (so you know, I did get a chuckle from it) doesn't define me as most conservatives think (ANDY). There are two statements in the email that I would agree to WITH MODIFICATIONS. But overall I view the email as bad generalizations sent to make a few people laugh!

I will cede your point that this particular email was rather pointedly dressed to pander to the conservative's world view...

No doubt, someone with your caliber (heh) of intellect and imagination could come up with the Left Counterpoint of this post...
Care to give it a shot?

And yes, I know, you're just slightly left of center in some things and right-leaning in some areas... This luke-warm wishy-washy unable-to-make-a-stand -for-what-you-know-is-right-and-proper is the most maddening thing about you...
How about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?
(Big points for you if you can come up with the movie reference without going to IMDB.)

Ah well... I'm assuming you have returned to the Right Coast from hob-nobbing with the communists over in Europe...
Read your exploits with interest... Sounds like y'all had fun.
My time over there was somewhat more...um...confused.
(This is what happens when you don't have A Plan. Seat-of-the-pants sightseeing is winds up being more hurry-up-and-wait, and when it is 0 degrees or less, seconds are minutes and minutes are f'ckin forever.)

Thanks for replying...It always warms my heart to see your comments.
