The far left and far right are the worst of us. They are exactly the same in many ways..
They represent everything that America is not.


You can't get any more correct than that. The sad thing is, the far left and the far right don't think they are the lunatic fringe. They think they are "true Conservatives or Liberals." They think they speak for actual decent Americans.

Around here, it's the Holiness folk who go haywire...

Since I'm already offended, here's an old religious joke from my youth:

What's the difference between Catholics, Methodists, and Southern Baptists?

Catholics believe in drinking, but not in extra-marital sex.
Methodists believe in extra-marital sex, but not in drinking.
Southern Baptists don't believe in either, but they do them just in case...

Hahaha!! That's hilarious! But oddly enough, I dated a Catholic and she was the second biggest sex fiend I ever dated.

That's because most people go through a rebellious streak. They rebel against whatever they were forced into growing up. In her case, sex was the forbidden fruit, so yes, she wanted it!

I married a preacher's daughter.


Most people grow out of it, finally realizing there was a reason for their early childhood restrictions. A few don't, and become Internet trolls. Before the internet, they just became irrelevant.

Ah, the good ol' days...

I’m in MS...

There is a reason the south is in the bottom of any national poll..

Worst in education..

Worst pay rates..

Highest obesity..

Most domestic violence

That was a response to the guy in Seattle.

We have a saying here in Louisiana, "Thank God for Mississippi." Otherwise we'd be last in education. But education has been dumbed down dramatically. America's education system as a whole is pretty bad against other countries. In the 90's when I was in high school, an F would have been a C using today's grading scale. And yet our education is worse, even with that scale. That's why it's hard to find a doctor or teacher or scientist or anyone else with a degree that takes their job seriously and acts like a professional.

As far as violence and fatties, there are several states not in the South that are as bad or worse than we are. Any big blue city is far worse in crime than any other city regardless of location. Wisconsin is well known for their abundance of chubby people.

And regarding the pay scale, our cost of living isn't as high as other places and I prefer that. I had a friend in NY that said he paid anywhere from $17.00 to $21.00 for one pack of cigarettes back in 2011. I could buy a whole carton of the same kind here in Louisiana for $28.00 in that year. I quit in 2013 so I don't what they cost now.

Horselover fat.

We live in a society that is so polarized that we can't even have a reasonable discussion about anything anymore. We are just waiting to label and pounce on our opposition at first opportunity.

It's opportunistic performative outrage designed to solidify our bonds with whatever in-group we identify with by identifying the out-groups we are opposed to.


((-----cAAApitalism-------------------------------nuance---------------------------------------devil socialism------))


On either side you have the most extreme versions and viewpoints, but in the middle somewhere are a trillion trillion more nuanced positions. "Hey, I love capitalism, but maybe we don't need to bail out the nations largest banks and cable companies every time they do what corporations do and push the envelope far enough to break it?"


Nuance is the first casualty of TV news and social media. The second casualty is formal debate without name-calling and compromising to create rules with real utility for all stakeholders.


The problem is deep and the outcome is hellfire (missiles) and death (from above). We have been programmed to hate, fear and blame "others" for so long, many of us can't even imagine a world where we come together instead. Ala original sin; the most misunderstood metaphor in the history of talking apes.

I'm not sure how she was raised. Her mom was in her 70's, we were both 17 and she had a sister that was 45. Her dad had died years before I met her and left them lots of money, maybe she was adopted and never told me. I only went to her house when her mom went to work at the VA hospital on Sunday's, Tuesday's, and Thursday's and rarely visited while her mom was home. But we did all go to Destin, Florida the Summer we dated. I only knew she was Catholic because I went to mass with her a couple of times (I liked the old, dark atmosphere and creepy organ music, I found it intriguing). She would want it several times every time I was at her house (not that I ever complained). She was a strange one, and by strange I mean she'd want it in a tub filled with water, then on her comforter on the bathroom floor before we dried off, then get soaked in the tub again and head to her bed soaking wet for another round.

I can't disagree with you there. This polarized society and social media (a main ingredient in all of this) is how we got to this point. One side decides to prove their balls are bigger so the other one ups that, and the one ups never stop until we get to where we are now which is a deadlocked, partisan society. No compromise whatsoever, not even an inkling.

Actually, that's an Alabama saying... if you're going to appropriate it, at least give us credit.

Seriously, though, your points are quite valid. Where I am, a murder of any kind is still rare enough it's all the talk of the town for months, makes major headlines... in the big cities, it's just a footnote if it's even mentioned in the paper at all. Robbery and burglary is rare as well (because as often as not, it results in the murder of the robber). Sneak thieves, we have... but that's because we don't have a lot of cameras pointed at everything. Most of the thefts come from younger family members, believe it or not.

Domestic violence... yeah, we got that too much. Same reason as sneak thieves, not everyone is watching everyone all the time. It's not condoned, though; if anything, it's usually the cause of a serious butt-whoopin' (or worse) by a family member.

Obesity... nah. We work. I'm 6'-2" tall and weigh 150 pounds since my surgery (down from 180 before). My son is a little over 6 feet and comes in around 200 or so, still far from obese. I know one guy in the immediate area - one! - who struggles with his weight, and that's genetics.

Education is a disaster across the nation. Pick a damn state; their public education sucks. We still have a few decent schools around here, though, and pretty good colleges. The local community college is ranked in the top 10 nationally for their math/pre-engineering program and the closest full University is one of the best Engineering Schools in the nation.

Sounds like JustJohnny needs to get out and look around. There's more to us than meets the eye.

I laugh, but it's sad that y'all say it, too. Poor Mititipi. Reminds me of my favorite meme...




That's how it is around here on the crimes. A murder in Bossier City (fairly large city, but red and low crime) gets a vigil and businesses will take proceeds from a certain night and give it to the family of the victim. 4 homicides in 2010 was a 300% increase in the average murder rate here. The next Parish over is Caddo, home of Shreveport. Every morning on the news there is another murder or attempted murder there. Caddo is one of the only Parishes in LA that show up blue in elections. We have fat people, but rarely you'll see the obese folks. They're usually the ones who take the motorized carts and check out at the grocery store with a Louisiana Purchase card. I'm your height but I'm 230 and barely have a belly yet I'm considered overweight. I got down to 210 (which is still considered overweight for that height) and everyone at work said I was looking sick.

I agree.

When you come out and say something like that, what you're actually doing is issuing a threat to anyone who might pass through the town while gay.

You know what's funny? He posted a graphic that was actually a legitimate critique. But dumb# couldn't help himself and went all Roll Tide.

Here's the text of the graphic he posted:

“We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics.”


Harsh to be sure, but not without legitimacy.

You wanna know what's bad? After my surgery, I had to go to Walmart to pick up my medication. I went in thinking, "OK, this one time, I'll use the cart thing" because I was literally stumbling along trying to stay upright and it got worse the longer I stayed vertical. There were no carts. Every single one was taken over by some woman or guy who could have dropped 3/4 of their body weight and still been considered fat.

So I staggered through the store using a buggy as a walker, got what I needed, and got out. Those carts are for the pigs, not for people who need them.

It did sound like a threat. I understand what he meant to say, but he's in a position of (minor, very minor) authority. He really should choose his words much more carefully. I can see where someone might take that statement as a threat.

That's why I haven't really defended him. He just has a case of Pat Robertson Syndrome (extreme foot-in-mouth disease) and didn't think. His gripe was legitimate, but the way he phrased it was just not appropriate.

My mother in law is savage. She is very elderly and ill and mean as a rattlesnake. She went to the grocery store and an obese woman on a cart asked her to grab an item from the shelf for her. My mother in law told her to "get off her obese a$$ and get it her self)
I'm sure that lady wasn't expecting that! I would have paid good money to see her in action.

a reply to: TheRednecka few years ago I had a stroke, and I don't get around well. I tried to use those carts at the grocery store, but I was a hazard to myself and anything around me. So I just hang onto the cart. My family hold my hand when we're out, they say I walk faster and more steady when they lead me around. I'm ok with this because I'm 70 years old now and just glad to still be alive.

I can motivate under my own power now, just not for long. On a good day, I can go at a slow pace for maybe 4 hours... on a bad day, I'm done after 90 minutes. But that's enough to get through a store (and get back and forth to my shop).
