The day after the election…
Chuck does not know what to do with all that Gen X cynicism he’s carried for 20 years. 10:45am
Miss Guided at 10:52am November 5
I am sure something will come along that you can pour it into. I hope O can make the world a better place, but I doubt it.
Linda at 10:55am November 5
Miss Guided – you have to believe it for it to happen. He’s only a man. He needs help from everyone now. Sounds like you won’t be helping and I’m sad to hear that. But many of us are going to turn this world around and we’ll reap the benefits.
Miss Guided at 11:21am November 5
Curious, how do you suppose I am not willing to help? I teach my kids to be responsible humans, I don’t take what isn’t mine, I am faithful to the path God has called me to. What, exactly, do you want my help with. I am always willing to serve those around me.
Mark at 11:32am November 5
Chuck, light fuse and get away!
Linda at 11:50am November 5
Miss Guided – First, I didn’t say definitively that you would NOT help. I said it sounds like you won’t help. And the reason I said that was the overall pessimistic attitude (i.e. “I hope O can make the world a better place, but I doubt it.”). So, you’re saying you ARE willing to help, and that’s great. I hope to see you put your money where you mouth is, but I doubt it.
Miss Guided at 12:06pm November 5
What money? What do you need my money for? Right now I am kind of using it taking care of my kids and our home. I need it to pay for our mortgage, to buy the food we don’t produce ourselves, to pay for my kids if they need medicine or the materials we need to educate them. To pay for the gas to take them places, to pay for the electricity to keep them warm, to pay for the auto insurance so if we injure someone we can provide for their relief. And the very important internet access. Now, we do all of this without debt, without stealing, and without asking for money from people we don’t know. Can you please be more specific on where I should put my money?
Linda at 1:50pm November 5
“Can you please be more specific on where I should put my money?”
Um, yes, but I don’t want to be kicked off Facebook.
Miss Guided at 2:04pm November 5
So does that mean I win the debate? You can’t come up with a response that wouldn’t be considered inappropriate? Please, I am genuinely interested, please tell me what change you hope to see in the next 4 years or 40. What do you want to happen?
Linda at 2:07pm November 5
Yes, Miss Guided, you win.
Miss Guided at 2:12pm November 5
Does that mean you aren’t going to tell me what you hope to see in the future and I have to find another liberal friend to explain it to me?
Linda at 2:16pm November 5
Color me impressed. You finally gleaned something from all of this.
Miss Guided at 2:24pm November 5
That you can’t give me a strait answer? What did you learn?
Linda at 2:35pm November 5
That you don’t know the difference between glean & learn. Time to pick up my boys. Toodles!
I love that all these people who claim that McCain would have crossed party lines to help our world simply aren’t willing to do the same or support Obama in doing so. Of course, all of them believe he has terrorist ties (talk about a bunch of racists, every single one). So, for those who say, “Don’t blame me I didn’t vote for him,” don’t worry, you won’t hear that from me. But when he does help us, you better not take any of the credit either and you better be willing to swallow your misguided pride and admit that he actually did help. Though, from what I’ve seen, they’ll say the good comes from Republicans putting things in place first. I’ll tell you, if there is a bumpy road in this process, it will come from all the Republican lumps of crap in the road we have to get over.
