Hey there's nothing wrong with being "middle of the road". I believe I'm better able to see both sides of the spectrum that way. I think everyone needs to take it down a couple of notches and stop taking everything so personally. I thought both lists were funny. Because if you look at people on the extremes from both sides they usually fit their stereotypes and it's hilarious really. Why can't we have more sense of humor in here. Why do we have to take ourselves so seriously. I know politics is serious business and all, but come on. Life is too short to get so angry/offended over something that was supposed to be funny. Lighten up. Oh and that was directed and any one person or side. It was more for everyone.

Dave, sorry, you're just not as nutty as some of us. You'll have to try harder.

stephley, your comment #27 seemed to be casting the noted earlier remarks as pompous and self-satisfied. I'm sorry if I misunderstood your comment structure. torg, my remark "...you remember when common courtesy really was, and miss it" was more a reference to the fact that many "traditional" values are perceived as being old-fashioned, and conservatism is often considered old-fogeyism. If anything, it was self-mocking. :fogey: Of course, if my point was unclear, then it was not funny. My fault. On the other hand, isn't Obama's whole campaign founded wholesale change and audacity?

That made me wonder, too! Maybe if middle-of-the-road means not-militant.

BTW - I'm gonna chat here and stay away from the religious(border fanaticle) discussion about gambling). Those guys are freaks.

Lain - I'm not sure if I should be insulted that you called me middle of the road. Am I not good enough to be conservative now? ;)

Sorry if I missed the joke. The other ones were more obviously ridiculous, so it was clear they were jokes, since of course no one actually thinks "the Constitution states that Christianity is our official religion." Yours seemed to be saying liberals make rash decisions, want change for the sake of it, think being bold and arrogant is good, and don't do the math on a politicians' proposal. It also sort of said liberals are not so much with the common courtesy, though you did say you didn't mean anyone here. When people are rude when driving or supermarket shopping, how do you determine if they're a conservative? Do you ask or just make an educated guess?

"I fail to see how any of the other referenced comments are self-righteous, pompous or self-satisfied." Laine, self-righteous, pompous and self-satisfied came from you and Cab - that's how you both characterized the comments. I intentionally included comments from Amy and me - they were at the beginning of the thread and did represent the initial blue responses.

Steph, I don't see why my comments should have offended you. I simply don't like Michael Moore, and unless you're secretly the big man himself, I'm not sure why that's an offense to you. And I couldn't figure out why his picture was here because none of the stories had anything to do with him. Also, I don't think my comment about education was being defensive, I was just making conversation. I thought that's what this site was for.

torg, #20 was not laugh-out-loud, but a bit tongue-in-cheek. I didn't see anything mean in it, though. :shrug: The bit about courtesy was more a matter of daily life: driving, supermarket shopping, etc. I noted that it wasn't intended to apply here.

I'm confused, was comment #20 supposed to just be funny? It was a little mean, and I don't get it if it's supposed to be a joke. I thought I had a pretty good sense of humor...
Cassandra57 Cassandra57 7 years
torg, perhaps Liberty and Citizen thought we had cooled off enough to have a sense of humor. Oops, guess not. But it seems it only degenerates into name-calling if particular folks pop in. :oy:

I didn't think the list linked was that funny, either. But then I think we stopped trying to be funny with things like, "You might be a Conservative if: ...you spend time thinking things through instead of making an immediate, instinctive decision." Obviously implying liberals make immediate, instinctive decisions. Which isn't really even trying to be funny or clever, just sort of harsh.

"(referring to photo) Finger lickin' good, eh? Eh? .... EH? Anybody with me? Helloooooo?" "geez amy, isn't that extreme - even for us?" These comments were amy's and yours, respectively. Since party lines seem to have been drawn ("even for us"), that on is on the blue side of the line. Dave's comment #3 was obviously tongue-in-cheek, he even flagged it as such with an appropriate emoticon. Besides, Dave has proven himself to be quite middle-of-the-road here. Snarky remarks about celebrities who have intentionally created controversial public personas are not pompous or self-righteous. I fail to see how any of the other referenced comments are self-righteous, pompous or self-satisfied.
