Yes, I'm making a fool out of myself! LOL!

"I like conserving stuff so I'm a political conservative"!

If you read my post again, v e r y s l o w l y, you will see that I am making a statement in response to your post - "Another rightwing nutcase, Limbaugh has made millions off guys like this.".

I did not call you a liberal - as you seem to think.

But you have made the "Quote of the Day" with your reply -

IT'S A STATEMENT - ON A TEE-SHIRT!

But I must say, the more you try to take the focus away from your "Quote of the Day" the more you do seem like someone with 'liberal tendencies'!

I'm sorry - but that is still the funniest thing I have heard anyone say in quite a while

The point here may have not been understood by some. That could account for the humor. The modern conservative doesn't. He doesn't conserve the land, the air, the water, oil, the tax payers money, our soldiers lives.

Read properly it should not have been seen as humorous, but as tragic. That it wasn't is highly indicative of a lack of reflective thought.

"When given the proper opportunity, I shall always be a cad" Simon Templar.

If you notice and pay attention, they only people who receive my caddishness are the rightwingwhackos who do as their leaders say without cognition.

I have no empathy with, nor sympathy for, those who act out of closeminded fear.

If one is capable of a reasoned argument without resorting to Limbaughesque canards, one would get a reasonable response.

The ultimate question is, why do those who identify themselves as "conservatives" in the modern sense of the word actually support the rape and pillage of the planet and harmless little foreign countries.

I would like to see our President brought up on charges of mass murder in the deaths of 3200 + American boys and girls. If you support mass murder don't expect consideration from me.

It may be beneficial to you if you were to look up the words 'conservative' and 'conservationist'.

The words you are confusing are 'conservative' (political) and 'conservationist' (environmental).

You take offense at being called liberal however you go a step further and label people right wing whackos. . . your puffed-up and self-aggrandizing theme is tiring. What I don't understand is that if you feel posters are beneath you why do you continue on? Your haughty demeaner is certainly not condusive to getting your point across.
