Fathers' Day Greeting

Why can't we just . . . ?







Daughter-In-Law was trailing this bumper sticker on the way into town yesterday. It's from the Coexist Shop at XpressYourView. Of their artistic message, they say:
This unique image shows the interdependence of man, woman and the major religions of the world, in capturing the positive life-sustaining messages of coexistence and peace.
Whatever. It works for me today, anyways.

Thats what we have now. A bunch of bigots working together to screw people over.
We already 'coexist'.

Ah, Skippy-Linus you sound like somebody has touched a nerve. You know I really loved that articulate response you gave me back at Mike's site. But even with that you would expect with the intellectual prowess you claim to have that you could find a more articulate and mature way to convey and debate your ideas. It seems that you can't stray far beyond the juvenile comeback unless everyone gives you complete control and attention. Such behavior takes on the characteristics of a spoiled brat and for an adult like you that is sad.

I wish we could, but for that to happen, we would have to sell our souls to the black hearted devils, which we cannot do.

Breached brain, ah I mean 'beach'
It is always suggested to 'not feed the trolls'.

Skippy-Linus once again you disappoint me. With the intelligence you claim to hold over many you have to steal from someone else to comeback on me with anything approaching an adult status from the spoiled childish rants from this weekend. I must admit that I enjoyed yanking your chains and having you go off such an uncontrolled ill rational manner. You must be very insecure to resort to such tactics when you claim to so high and mighty over most everyone else in the country.
Now both Chuck and I are laughing at you at Mike's site. Quick Skippy-Linus, you need to rush back to your pumkin patch I'm sure the coup leaders in your head are calling.

Yeah, good idea, guys. Take it outside. Before you break up Vigilante's Daddy-Day aura of coexistence, not to mention his furniture.

For the same reason that when I park my truck, I lock the doors.

I've seen this a bunch of times and I love it. Unfortunately we have a kind-of forced tolerance in our country. There ARE things that we shouldn't put up with, and we all gloss over them in the name of tolerance.

Ligneus, I was about to post on your very attractive site, but it's still locked up as tight as your truck. I repeat my earlier observations on a third location: why is it so typical of conservative bloggers to require esoteric and time-consuming registrations? Does this come from an impulse towards control, to circling their wagons, to live in walled-in communities? (Still trying to understand.)

United, I am regretting you weren't more specific.

I'm learning about congnitive linguistics and learning how we often think politically. Yes, Vigilante, conservatives often need control because they are so darned scared of everyone and everything. We musn't question the VATERLAND. What's amazing is that America has put up with this kind of paranoid behavior for so long (that tolerance rap)...when we're supposed to be the land of the free, liberty, etc. But now even liberals are doing it...I had a Democratic friend running for state office who wasn't letting people sign up to his blog without vetting them first--I thought he was acting like a Republican. Republicans win because they support their own voices, not because they ditch their dissenters. Progressives would be a lot better off if we worked hard to support progressive voices (respected academics, liberal journalists, thinktanks, etc.!!!) financially and with our own voices.

In fairness to Ligneus, I see where he has admitted to having technical difficulties in enabling comments. He has not deliberately restricted his site.

I'm interested in why you would automatically ascribe nefarious motivations because you couldn't post on my blog. In the meantime I do apologize, and thank you for your interest. Tomorrow I will e-mail my blog meister to see why he doesn't seem to want to fix it.

Specifically allowing religion to bleed into politics, letting government intrude into people's homes to tell them who they can love and what they can smoke, letting people around us EVER make racist or bigoted comments unchallanged, prostelyzation of any kind, blindly following politicians without question, refusing to discuss religion and politics with friends and family in the name of keeping the peace, etc...
