Yes, something of a "green thumb" here, but you list "golf, gym" etc. as alternatives and what? No guns?

Seems for more than a few reasons you don't belong in this forum...

To my point: why align yourself with a side? Both are terribly flawed.

Im'conservative' economically meaning finite resources, finite spending. I'm conservative politically meaning the gov can only do 'x'. Which is actually progressive. Yet people align themselves with labels that typecast themselves.

You did well. Could have bought more in my neck of the woods. Lol

Brown raised taxes and commenced some fiscal discipline. The pension debt is still growing like crazy, but he's in a better place than he was when he took office. He's got an illegal immigrant problem that I think, in my opinion only, will eventually come back to bite him, but he's given them the right to drive and, as a result, vote, so who knows. The mindset there is liberal, so no Republican or Libertarian will be anything other than the required token.

Tends to get under my skin when suggesting the recognition of finite resources is somehow conservative. Maybe too, then, I'm liberal because I care for the welfare of Americans?

Labels do pose a challenge, but getting the contents correct is important too...

That's why I used quotes. Neither 'side' believes in finite resources. They both use the fed like its magic. The system broke in 1913.

I addressed your point, comment #99. Have another look...

All you say about the flaws has merit, but everything is relative and almost never equal, as I thought I explained in my comment #99, not if you bother to look carefully at the many differences anyway...

Quotes doesn't make a difference, and you are waffling a bit. First that was your take on being conservative, now it's "both sides."

Getting a little dizzy, and I've got to move on, but good chatting with you this morning. Cheers!
