burbs for the win. Orlando. Miami. Tallahassee. Know people from all over the state. But they're all primarily from the major cities and surrounding areas as well. I suppose if I was from Palatka or some other vack woods town I might know some hunters.

BTW, gators don't come to mind when i think hunting. Probably cause your on a boat and that makes me think fishin.

Thank you for this well thought out post.
In our Township Republican meetings, our Chairman has been emphasizing that we are part of a community and we need to look out for our neighbors. Some of the "old timers" have voiced some complaints that we are not a social organization. My response has been that we are not a social organization, but we are a civic organization. We cannot expect people to vote for us if we do not show that we first care for them as our neighbors and show that we want to make a difference in their lives, not just our pockets. AND they will know if we are not sincere.
I think that our government officials cannot continue with their "do as I say, not as I do" attitudes. People have no respect for hypocrites or their rules.
I think it's a very fine line to walk, between doing too much and too little. I also think that, across the board, people are more willing to accept hypocrisy from their elected officials as you go higher up, as long as they have the right letter after their name. Township board...nope, get that loser out of there. Congressman, Senator, President...well, that one little thing isn't so bad.
Of course, it's the exact opposite it the individual has the wrong letter after the name. In that case, let's play gotcha with whatever minor thing we can think of.

And the pussification of America continues.

I remember my physics teacher having questions on the tests with scenarions like "the elevator door opens but the elevator is not there. Frank does not notice and falls down the shaft. If he was on the 9th floor how many floors will he drop before terminal velocity?"

I remember it making the national news when a chicago public school teacher used drugs in his math questions. "Jorge has 10 kilos of coke. If he sells equal shares to Paco, Cornelius, and Lupe, and a different amount to...." that type of thing. I think he had to resign.

Yeah, never mind that the kid probably FAILED the flipping test. No, lets not focus on that, lets instead focus on something else that takes the kids failings out of the spotlight.

This is how sam will be when he becomes a mother.

Look at this way Squishy,
some girl gets raped, so her father kills her. Calls it an "Honor killing".
You can make the argument that hey!
it's the way they live,
its their environment,
its tradition,
its written on some parchment....
But when it comes right down to it....Isnt it crazy to kill your daughter because she was raped?
Of course it's crazy. But what I'm trying to say is that the father does not see himself as crazy. And if you were to walk up to him and say "Hey, didn't you know it's crazy to kill your daughter because you think she dishonored you?" he would look at *you* like you were crazy. In his way of thinking what he did was perfectly normal.

We are not going to successfully change anything - honor killings to gang retailiation - if we simply write these people off as crazy and put them in jail or execute them. Without giving the society that breeds these activites something to replace these beliefs, we'll only be successful in creating martyrs.

OK, I hope that makes sense. I've only been interruped 10 times while trying to write that!

And I am trying to say that how he views himself is of no consequence. He is crazy.
Murdering your daughter is crazy, no matter the "reasoning"

Murdering your daughter because it's tradition is just as crazy as murdering you daughter because the dog told you to do it.

Like I said, I understand your point, but I dont buy it, or agree with it.

If a person cannot understand that murder is wrong, then they are crazy, I dont care if they are a sociopath, a gang banger or goat herder.

So in your universe the only people who do anything wrong are crazy? Either they know it's wrong and don't do it, or they do it because they're crazy and don't know it's wrong? Are those the two options? I forgot, no one ever does anything they know is wrong. Thanks for pointing that out. That was the gaping hole in my position that I was missing this whole time.

Your words from a couple days ago:

"Once again, sam skips the debate and launches right into hurling insults."

Apparently what's good for the goose isn't good for the beer-swilling redneck.

Bad news: Ron Jeremy went to the hospital.

Good news: He and his moneymaker are going to be fine.

How he got to be a porn star I will never know. I mean, I know he's "gifted" but so are lots of other guys who are much easier to look at.

You know why he's called the Hedgehog, right? And it's not about his looks.
