Liberals treat dogs like people, Conservatives treat people like dogs

Friday Fives

1. What was your high school stereotype, what group did you hang with?

I had long hair and was into metal... so I guess you would have called me a stoner. However, I never was a pot smoker. It just does nothing for me (don't tell the gang though, k?)

2. If you could be one Disney character, what character would you be?

I'd say without question Marvin the Martian, but he is a Warner Brothers character. I learned this the hard way when I went into a Disney store last week and asked where all their Marvin stuff was. The girl was not amused. I think she thought I was being a smart-ass.

3. Ever think about your own death? How do you suppose you will go? (This sounds like I am particularly fragile and depressed today! I am not, put the suicide hotline phone down.)

Not really. Until now. Gee, thanks.

4. Are you a Democrat? A Republican? A Libertarian? Green? Why?

Ah geesh! That question is the whole point of the site... to put forward why I am so passionate about helping people and why I think Democrats are today's answer. I could honestly go on for hours and hours about this. If you know me, you know that. So, let's just leave it at this... I am a Dem.

5. Do you feel like you look your age, or do you feel older or younger?

I guess I am probably about dead on. Before I was going bald I looked eternally young. How young? Once in Mexico when I was about 23 I was carded in a Mexican bar. The drinking age in Mexico is 16, so I really did look that young. However, god hates me and took away my hairline... so folks often either guess dead on or a little older.

How this Pope might be be useful

Posted by Hello

Hey folks, from all early indications, this Pope will be a major problem. You may be thinking it isn't my business, but it is. Not unlike the President, decisions this dude makes impact everyone in the world. Also, though I am a practicing atheist... on paper I believe I am still a Catholic. I think I forgot to notarize my atheist paperwork. What with all the sinning and wine and virgins all around... details become less important.

In separate distinctions heard today, new Pope has been described as 'God's Rottweiler' and 'Pope No' for being so conservative on doctrine. So what does that term 'conservative on doctrine' mean? We'll need to know, because you are going to hear it 8,000 times in the next week. What it means is that dude hates gays and women. Long story short... that is the issue. There is a third problem which even church people have openly been discussing; to survive, the church MUST acknowledge birth control as safe and acceptable. This isn't about family planning, really. The issue of birth control is critical because AIDS is spiraling out of control all over the world.

This is a major problem and probably my biggest beef with the church. Back to my point, new Pope is a hardliner and is expected to make the church more mean and conservative. So how is this a good thing for reasonable human beings? I'll tell ya.

This guy is 78, so frankly he isn't going to live very long at all. He is the oldest Pope elected in over 100 years. So this guy is going to drive the church hard right against women and gays and AIDS. However, after he passes in 5 to 8 years the world will be clamoring for a reasonable and moderate Pope to bring the Church back to the people (sort of like I am hoping with happen with the Democrats, that folks will realize we always right and come back to us).

So, to sum up. I expect this Pope to further the problems of the world by preaching exclusion. Because I believe people are decent at heart... they will soon realize that exclusion solves nothing and makes enemies. Then, this Pope will die and a decent and reasonable human being will be put into the influential position to indeed make the world a better place and give people something to have faith in.
