  1. Liberal utopia

    Suit yourself. If you're not up to it, so be it. But what are you going to do when life really kicks your ass?
  2. Liberal utopia

    nylon, I really don't know what you mean. I have a philosophy. There are those that teach philosophy. I suppose it is real. I believe it is also dynamic, subject to a particular period of time and situation. Am I close? Or maybe you could suggest to me what you think, and I will listen.

    They disintegrate from the relentlessness of time?
  4. What Hath God Wrought?

    I'll be damned! That's just what I was thinking...………….

    Orbs of ecstasy!
  6. What Hath God Wrought?

    Well, to be honest, I meant 12 yo. But 'double digits' sounded so cool...…….

    Yep, that's it! But not 'our' lives. It's your lives.

    Wrong, moosebreath! Children of that age should carry no more firepower than that of a pop gun. Then graduating to pellet rifles after proficiency has been optimized with pop guns. When in double digits the young man proclaim his 'rite of passage' to the adult world by professing his prowess using a lethal weapon. That's how it happened with me, and look how well I turned out. Steady as the Rock of Gibraltar...…….

    I'll 'splain, then. First, I'll cop a plea for 'literary license'. You shan't be obsessed with the prehensile attachment known as a thumb. As far as what we should worry about today, is the 'deep state'. It's the gov you dislike and distrust so much. Even though you want it to control your life. For the promise of an easier life, you will virtually sell your soul to the gov. Well, you won't, though. From what I gather, you don't think you have a soul.
  10. Liberal utopia

    Hmm...…….. 'liberal utopia' vs. 'brexit'...…. One could be considered diametrically opposed to the other. The liberals desire this 'feel good' environment where mostly anything goes. At least this is AB's 'philosophy'. He desires a perpetual kumbaya world. The Brexit crowd thinks the EU has increased their control far beyond their original mandate. While AB's words are admirable and thought provoking, the 'nuts and bolts' of his ideals are missing. We're in a world that is far beyond 'philosophical musing'. History has taught us that we must strive to be the best that we can be, if we expect to maintain. We're not maintaining very well. We could take a defeatist attitude and just accept the 'inevitable'. And many of us do. The problem I have is the lies, half-truths disseminated by those who want their liberal agenda to be the 'high road' in this war of words on the direction of our respective societies. There are words and comments repeated so often by those that desire to mold minds in a certain direction. And it works. Let's that Trump as an example. He's a misogynist, racist, liar, war-monger, etc. All this comes from people that, presumably, are the compassionate ones that take the 'high road'. Before he got into the political arena, everybody liked him. He rubbed elbows with the liberal elite and was accepted in any circle. Not anymore, though. This is just my opinion, but it seems as though Trump is the most open and honest President that I've known. Maybe with the exception of Reagan. For a fact, he is the most 'unscripted'. Which accounts for all the 'lies' he tells. For all of us that are suspicious of a politicians true motives, this should be refreshing. He's been called a racist, but black unemployment is the lowest it's ever been. Women's unemployment is down to the lowest level in 30-40 years. So when liberals start throwing word 'lies' around, and 'losing respect' for fellow members, it's a two way street. And AB failed mention the greenback dollar in his aspirations for a liberal utopia.

    Are you in better mood, AB? Damn, I hope so...……..

    Yep! He's one known to wax philosophic...………………… and carrots...……

    The people that have a life and wanted to reach a destination probably won't change their votes now.
