    I agree and I tend to dismiss her writings as the frustrations really ugly women experience in life, but the movies manifested the delusions so perfectly that I think they are destined to be cult classics........................

    She's too dangerous to be dismissed outright. Her writing is at the level of a half wit. This leaves the door open for many, far too many people to be influenced.

    Re: The GOP Civil War: Choose a side.

    TeaPartiers and Libertarians
    RINO's and NeoCons

    I think you should have broken these down into 4 categories. There is more differences between the tea partiers and libertarians than similarities. Also RINO and NeoCons are at least in my view completely different. If given a choice I would choose where ever Senators Snowe, Alexander, Lugar, Isakson, Murkowski etc. What ever category these senators fall into.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Neither. The GOP turned itself into America's biggest joke.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Fortunately, most of those people are young and think the universe isn't fair to ugly women or else are fans of movies where repulsive nerds get to bed a real babe..................

    Perhaps, but the two catagories I did put the 4 of them into are more similiar than the other.

    RINO's and NeoCons in many conservative circles are synonyms.

    Despite the nationalistic tendancies of the TeaParty they do share many similarities with certain strains of libertarian thought.

    That rare species of paleo-conservatives I figure would be moreso leaning toward the TP/Libertarian side rather than the NEO/RINO side.

    Right now, I'm looking at the new blood closely. I've many, many reservations about Sen Paul. He has however shown recently to alleviate some of my concerns and addressing issues which I feel are most important. Like what he did yesterday for example. Sen Cruz is another one, he's new, I've like what I've seen but I don't know much about the guy, and he hasn't been through the fire yet to show me he has the integrity to match his rhetoric.

    Gary Johnson, now I don't agree with all of what he supports or even what he did as Governor. Most glaring is the corporatizing of Corrections.

    Unfortunately the only ones in this entire political mess that are going to have to compromise is the American Voter. We can't have a perfect candidate because the perfect candidate will have the entire political system fight tooth and nail against his name even being remotely given a mention.

    So, we must make do...

    The problem "Conservatives" are experiencing is they are no longer conservatives and are now just aiders and abetters of Evangelical social experimentation----------Not an enviable position to have backed oneself into...................

    I don't know but being closer to 40 than 30 much less being an "impressionable kid", I take offense to that comment.


    So in the GOP's Civil War which side are you on?
    I'm on Senator Coburn's side.
