Veritas, you get two points for warm & fuzzy.

Game's worth 100 points though...

Uh, billgrr, I thought I stopped "complaining" days ago about the names thing.

You should realize I'm more your friend than your enemy.

Have an excellent day

"Let's close all our bases and have faith."

Veritas, that's an interesting thought. Not practical in the fallen world we live in, but interesting.

Locomotive, your post on the 15th @4:58 speaks volumes in few words. It is food for thought for everyone.

Veritas, don't go all warm & fuzzy on me now. I've got my hands full already...

Many "religions" teach love thy neighbor. Which religion says hate thy neighbor?

Loco, wise choice. I have many acres on each side of me. It's going to stay that way, hate have busy body neighbors trying to poke their noses in my business.

billgrr, I did warn billdoesnt about one of his posts, saying that if I didn't do it, you surely would.

Perhaps that qualified, but if you hadn't seen it, yes, my mentioning it now would be hot air to you.

Remember, not all of us are what we seem--is that a line in a movie or something?

And thanks for the kudos about a "nice little ode" that I wrote. Hey, you might just be warm & fuzzy for real??

Uh, repeat on note to self: no real estate in certain neighborhoods. Safer that way...

Yes, billgrr, I should be careful what I ask for, because I just might get it.

Maybe my complaint is the dehumanization of people, seemingly whose only sin is that they differ with us politically.

When people are to be viewed in categories only--Dems all good, Reps all bad, or vice versa--they're not humans anymore. They're numbers, or parts of a whole, to be either admired or hated in their entirety.

Philosophies or ideas can and should be debated, but when the personal attacks begin, the dehumanizing happens as the debating continues. And really, I'm talking Dems, Reps, libs and cons alike.

Well, there's nothing new under the sun about this. Politics has always had its muckraking tactics, its nasty cartooning, its accusations--the more outrageous, the better, and the best when true!

I noticed that you didn't acknowledge the high probability that there are Democrats on the dole as well as Republicans, but really, I expected that.

So now you've outed your neighbors? Wow, you are one warm & fuzzy guy, billgrr.

Note to self: no real estate in certain neighborhoods.

BTW, it's probable there are Democrats on the dole too. If you won't acknowledge that, you're intellectually dishonest.

Names, billgrr, or give it up.

Anyone can tell a good story. Should I begin with John Q. Democrat and end with Harry B. Progressive?

At least I provided a couple of names.

Yep, he has to keep his welfare base happy as that is who votes for him. What percent of the citizens are on Welfare?????? 4% How many vote??? Less than 20%... Thus, they add up to 51% of the voters...hahaha. Mark and Bill are right on. Is there really a need for GFAB and MFAB and Ellsworth and Great falls out here on the prairie... Close GFAB, Ellsworth, and Great falls.

The revered journalist Bob Woodward reports that the Obama Administration has a 'madness' and then Bob Woodward is more or less threatened via email.

That's how this president operates. Threatens to upset the entire cart if it doesn't go his way. He's a baby. Strike that, he's worse than a baby and any grown-up with a lick of sense can see it.

But, hey, he's the preznit, so he can do what he wants, uses every excuse to do what he wants and then plays a round of golf as it all enters the memory hole.

If Bob Woodward is willing to tell it like it is and then he as a messenger is skewered/shot/droned by the Obama idiots in charge, something smells rotten along the Potomac and it ain't pigs.

It's madness. Newspeak it just like it sounds.

What happened to Obamas "war of Necessity". The Afghanistan War.

Now it's Americas forgotten war. 80,000 troups still fight and dying everyday. But, apparently it's to hard of a subject for Obama since you don't hear a peep from him.

Military and Social Security are much better targets for the Dems than welfare. They can't go after their voting populatation

It doesn't matter what Obama does..the military industrial complex that Gen.Eisenhower warned us about in his 1961 farewell address, will prevail in the end...they sponsor both political parties....why do you think BUSH/CHENEY lied about WMDs to invade Iraq?
