I am Quaker, actually. Well, radical, atheist Quaker. Quakerism as philosophy, if you will (pacifism, find inner peace in silence, the power of the people as opposed to central figure, or in religion, minister, etc.). But I do usually go to Meeting (Quaker equivalent of a church), and I can tell you that, though the ones in MA are mostly very liberal, what I described above is there as well. But I'm glad people care enough to criticize.



...and don't get me started on the Mormon Church across the street
I am anti-"txt talk." I support good grammar. I am part of the "Save the Vowels" movement. For your sanity and mind, type out your damn words.

Thank you

I'd like to think of myself as a progressive, liberal, accepting (do whatever you want attitude as-long-as-it-dosen't-infringe-on-anyone-else's-rights) left wing kind of person. But as many cookie-cutter libertarians as myself, I have this crunchy, granola, hippy belief. I think that we should consider the environment, eat organic, think global, act local, blah, blah, blah.

Then someone said to me something that was pretty profound. He said, "The right wing tells people what to think, the left wing tells people what to do". It was kind of devistating in a way because it's true, we lefties DO tell people what to do. And my libertarian side finds that hard to live it down.

So what the hell was my point? I forget... oh yeah... Stay out of my booze!!!

That is rough to accept, but sometimes we've got to be slapped into seeing ourselves as the other side sees us. Maybe it'll help us adjust the message so it actually does some good.

"The right wing tells people what to think, the left wing tells people what to do".

Whew. Ouch. Good one!
