Reply to Niles
Here is your comment and I have separated it into different parts so that I may respond more effectively to your thoughtful comment.
I have not been on your site for a quite a few weeks, but your comments are very discouraging. Why do you always refer to Republicans (or as you say "Re puke licans") as mind numbed, ignorant, simple minded people? There are over 300,000,000 people in the great U.S of A. How can you say that 150,000,000 USA citizens are all ignorant? How can you say that Okies are all "Red Neck"? "
Why don't you criticize Jeff Foxworthy for him making fun of "red necks"? Or is it ok because he uses a southern accent and acts like he is one himself? It is the thoughtless judgmental behavior that I have a right to write about and you have a right to respond without violence and hopefully avoiding the ignorant comments that some of the other "Bubbas" have made.
There are many conservative Republicans that are intelligent and some that are not clouded by their very fundamentalist thinking. I admire Pat Buchanan for not being a Stepford robot and writing a book about the "Neo Conservative" called "Where the right went wrong!"
He does not sound like Rush Limbaugh and the others that want to bash liberals and say mindless comments like they are friends with Hillary and Ted Kennedy!
I feel that we are bombarded with right wing media and there is hardly any alternative to listen to on the radio except for NPR which gives fact rather the administrations sound board, "Fox News". I am glad that Pat Robertson who is an ardent fundamentalist disagreed with Bush's very impulsive move into Iraq. Up to the point of disagreeing with Bush, he was on the Bush side. I admire folks that really look for facts on the net or library, and make it a point to make their own decisions instead of Rush, Bush, Fox propaganda, or the "Daily Disappointment" making it for them.
"Most of the patrons at Hudstone's have advanced degrees and are professionals."
I thought, Niles, that you told me that you do not hang out or know the folks at Hudstone's??
I appreciate that they are professionals. It is only the folks that chose to become angry, violent and thoughtless that I address. When some people drink a lot, some people become loud and violent.
"They have experienced skills in both life and personal experiences. How can you say Okies are "Red Neck" when most Okies are not from Oklahama? How come you assosiate all people that you meet in OKC, that do not agree with you, as "Red Necks"? How come you are spending so much time trying to figure out who is mad at you instead of figuring out why they are mad at you? Evidently this is not just a problem at just Hudstone's, but at other places too."
Apparently, you have been wanting to hear gossip about me from other places. I am flattered.
I do not waste time wanting to figure out who is mad at me unless they make violent threats.
That is serious and obviously shows their lack of intelligence. That person is according to my definition a "redneck".
!"Why do you edit my responses so you can address only the questions or comments that you choose? My last question is, why do you think, or assume, that everyone that disagrees with you is either a NAZI, a rich person, or a Replubican? I will just let you know that I am a very well educated 33 year old Cheese Head transferred poor boy that lives here now. I am not a Red Neck. I just make educated decisions.
I appreciate the fact that you have written very well educated responses and you deserve the label of "replubican" or conservative rather than just an ignorant redneck that chooses to stay ignorant. Thank you for the comment. Maybe after the elections, I can buy you a beer, if it is safe to do so! Please do not be angry with me when Kerry wins!
