Nation grieves last surviving brother of political dynasty - Se...

Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

It wasn't the sheer volume of bills that the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy piloted through the U.S. Senate that made him a national political icon, but rather the technique he relied on to effect sweeping change on everything from health care, to immigration reform, to peace in Ireland.

Zebra??????????
Actually, you're out to lunch this afternoon, I'd say. First off, the topic of the thread is Ted Kennedy and "grief". The other poster had a very interesting story about Kennedy's indifference with respect to a tragic situation the poster survived and that he had offered no help. Apparently, that gentleman views himself as "conservative". But, conservatives can be Democrats, Republicans or Independents. It's a point of view. I simply expressed an opinion that people could be conservative in some respects and liberal in others.

Zebra? WTF. This is not about a color scheme, idiot. It simply goes to the point of the poster not comprehending how one could hold both views - depending on the topic: fiscal or social. I think STV has expressed the same thing himself. Did you "Zebra" him? My favorite representative in Congress is a Blue Dog Conservative Democrat. In fact, for many many years, that's exactly what Southern Deomocrats frequently were: conservative. So, sigh. What a stupid comment, Torchwood. Zebra. Clueless.

<quoted text>Actually, since I'm a white woman whose husband is black, I suppose I've been called "liberal" for close to twenty-seven years. And, I'm not quite a libertarian - but close. Both of us here did support Ron Paul. I'm big on sovereignty for this nation and adamantly opposed to amnesty with a pathway to citizenship for illegals.
Naw, libertarian isn't inconceivable to me all. LOL. Nevertheless, I'd still call myself a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. How do you self identify?
I'm a horny middle-aged guy...oh wait you meant politically...the same as you.
