The difference between a conservative and a liberal

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Yesterday I was cranky due to a cold / flu that has had me wake up all week with a head ache.   I complained to one of my fellow compound dwellers about him wanting to borrow the compound wall garage door remote since he had managed to break his.  It was kind of one of those "hey you kids get off of my grass" moments.

Let us face it.  We are all walking radioactive waste dumps.  We use our self control to filter our thoughts and present ourselves in a fashion appealing to others.   The difference between conservatives as far as I can tell is that we  have a containment building while liberals do not.  They freely spew their waste about expecting us to eat it and like the flavor.

Country People Versus City People

Thursday, October 16th, 2008
Once a long time ago I hitchhiked from Cincinnati, Ohio to Chicago. For all the talk of the superiority of town dwelling people we could not manage to get rides other than when we were in the country.  We ended up walking all the way from Gary, Indiana to the outskirts of Chicago.  Only about 20 miles.  Since it was during fallish time there were fresh fruits all along the route. I still remember fall 1983 eating catalope all along the way to power up along the walk.  Nothing like fresh melon on a warm day with a long walk. 

Somehow I think this applies in a general sense.  Too bad cities are seen as an excuse to screw the other guy.
