Really Sad email
    #1421582 - 04/01/03 04:39 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

This friend of mine sent me an email joking about why Palestinians throw rocks. Of course I sent her something back saying maybe you should look at how they have been treated for the past 50 years. So she sent me an email back saying she felt really bad for them and she supports the war in Iraq because they finally will be liberated. Pure stupidity. And I used to date her. Maybe I should just post this in support group central.

If I get your drift...

I too get quite...well, sad at the view of reality some of our vote holding comrades hold.

I know poor, poor people who vote for the most right-wing party on the ballot, I know sick people who want to privatize Canada's public health insurance...and they can't afford the premiums they would have to pay under a private regime...they still insist it would be better.


The media is to blame I say. Or more appropriatly, the LIARS are to blame. Not the sheep.

What will happen with all this? My contention is that mankind will lie himself into destruction. Then, maybe in the afterlife, we'll all have a good laugh about it.

I guess my contention is that this moment is doomed. This is an age of confusion, and in this small moment we call our lives, we will witness the destructive power of lies. I trust that lesson will only be learned once.

My hope is over the horizon...

Catch my drift?

Any way you could post the joke?

I was thinking the same thing....

I hear ya, man. My ex-girlfriend was one of those blind patriot types. And she was Native American, interestingly enough. I kept asking her how she could so blindly support a country that's fucked her people over for over 400 years. I don't remember what answer she gave me, but it was pretty stupid. I should've taken a hint that she was just a dumb bitch, but it took me a long time to finally figure that out.

Sounds about right.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

libbies have no sense of humor, no matter what the context is.

Some people think rape isn't funny, it is if you use the right context - George Carlin

Liberals can be very funny. They are just as funny if not more funny than conservatives. Of course being funny doesn't make you right.

i wouldn't sat they're as funny as they are silly, but i see your point. Ironically enough my favorite comedian is George Carlin, he's not a liberal persay but he flirts with it from time to time.

George Carlin is, above all else, a cynic, and he's cynical about liberals and conservatives alike.
