Well hated

It’s pretty unusual that I agree with the entirety of someone’s opinion.  It is so rare in fact, that I am again not doing it here.

But this guy gets damn close, about as close as anyone I can remember with hitting the proverbial nail on the head.

I especially like this part:

Then they came for the gun owners, and you liberal shitbags threw me under the bus, even though I’d done nothing wrong.  So when they come to put you on the train, you can fucking choke and die.

As you know, I’m the first to call out a blogger for attempting to separate the nation in to the “liberal” and “conservative” buckets.  But other than his slight two-party infatuation and a little bit of gay-fear, this guy is pretty solid in his words.

Anyway, good on you Michael Z Williamson.  We need this kind of plain and honest discourse to point this country in the right direction again.

Tall glass of STFU

I’m surrounded by jack-holes.

Watching the debate after already picking your favorite is like reading internet reviews of your car model after you’ve already purchased it.

Do all of us a favor and don’t post that political rant you are about to submit about that out-of-context-one-thing that one guy just said.

Seriously:  Quoting asshats just makes you one.

Occupy the balot box

Without reservation, let me just say that it is absolutely imperative that the Occupy movement taking place across the nation (and the world) should be very careful not to let in political backers.

Occupy should take a lesson from the Tea Party “movement”.  When you give the steering wheel to one of the political parties, you give up all credibility and direction.  More importantly, I think you’ll find the news stories go from using words like “organic” to words like “staged” pretty quickly.

Keep the Democratic party OUT of the Occupy movement.  Trust me on this one.

Right, left, or other?

This is an interesting quiz.  It’s short, and over-simplified, but still offers a little bit of political value:

In case you’re wondering, which I’m SURE you are, I scored:

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 70%

Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 40%

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is…

Centrist prefer a “middle ground” regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice. Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind, tend to oppose “political extremes,” and emphasize what they describe as “practical” solutions to problems.
