google

so

i personalized my google page today

and got this Buddhist thought
for the day::

This is the way of peace: "Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love." - Peace Pilgrim

and i get somewhat confused when
i read things like this
as they are so broad

and don't give us a roadmap
the how-to
of getting things done

so i go back to google
and put in 'overcome evil with good'

and get this GOPUSA

um, not having read any web sites like
this ~ before
i was struck by the simplicity
of the words
like it written for someone without
a high school education

hummmmm

and now for something completely different : Urban Legends

AZ, that gop-site is a good example of the pernicious weed that has taken root in gop-minds (which struggle to read at the 8th grade level). Of course, it concludes that all their examples of evil can be blamed on godless liberals. And the hypocrisy! Because when dems "had the reins of power, the Oval Office was turned into a virtual brothel"...hey, better a virtual one than the real one we are witnessing in the flesh today, eh? Aren't you glad our computers aren't like TIVO that would now be sending you back to sites like these just cuz you stumbled in the door once. ~~ D.K.

Hi az, I Like the Snopes link, I use it all the time to debunk all those viral "patriotic" email messages that the stupid people fall for, they are usually total fabrications.

That GOP site is scary. Simple words for simple minds. I must be evil, also, heh?

I really don't think that liberals are Godless, Why do I keep coming across that statement?

As for the Oval Office being a virtual brothel, it always has been no matter who was there. It isn't any of our business though.

Sigh, the world just keeps getting more confusing to me. It looks like your transition to beta went well. I will switch next week I think. Hugs.

That GOP site is sick. Reminds me of a bunch of old bitties getting together to detail all the things wrong with the country. I do feel the Dem candidates stayed on higher ground and didn't go in for the dirty stuff this last election. So here's hoping we are linked up with those who overcame evil.

THE HILLBILLY VASECTOMY

After their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that
was enough as they could not afford a larger bed.

So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children.

The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy
that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. "A less costly
alternative," said
the doctor, "is to go home, get a cherry bomb, (fireworks
are legal in Alabama) light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the
can up to your ear and count to 10"

The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may not be the
smartest tool in the shed but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me."

"Trust me," said the doctor.

So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a
beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count...

"1"
"2"
"3"
"4"
"5"
(you'll love this......)
At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and resumed counting on his other hand.
This procedure also works in Tennessee, Kentucky,
Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Missouri, West Virginia and parts of Washington DC

That GOP site should not be touched with a ten foot pole.

I loved the Snopes link; I'll have to use that as reference next time when people want to tell me an urban legend is the truth :-)

Kvatch said...

To the extent that the GOP has an advantage, it's in their insistence on using the most simple, most direct, most contextually void rhetoric they can come up with, and Democrats simply refuse to do the same.

Did you see any slogans from the DNC in the last election saying simply, "The Iraq War is the Republican's fault"? Nope. The GOP reduces, reduces, reduces till they get a good soundbite devoid of meaning or truth, but it still plays well in the heartland. GOPUSA is an excellent example.

The reason Republicans all look so young is that they don't trouble themselves with reality.

It is so reassuring when you think you know it all, gopusa is for people who don't think, not even for a second.

Snopes is good, I liked the old wives tales and politics.

Goddess, if you need some sunshine today, may I humbly recommend BLUEBERRY'S place.
