I sorta draw the line about right there.(offending) When I refer to pandering and backslapping it's in the context more like, say I was CEO of a company and all I did was surround myself with "yes" men that would be pandering and kissing my ass constantly (think that is GB's biggest problem from what I hear)
So you get a bunch of guys forming clicks and just having a feel good session is IMO boring as hell.........peace doesn't really fit into the equasion as I see it.
You and I have mostly always gotten along even though I am way farthur left than you will ever be.......how come?
Respect......I respect you and your opinion, even if it is not anywhere's near to being my own..........
Now this respect is what forms a great foundation for good argument, and a lively conversation......(It's alive!!)
Respect is very important in my life ......and I have no particular affection for people who think they are showing me respect by backslapping etc. me.
I expect a persons view of the reality at hand regardless ....even if he tells me I'm full of crap.
As to the blog......(great fun by the way) This is basically what I have done to protect my interests in the coming(perhaps) crisis.
I don't think a guy should at this time be going overboard (and I haven't) but this thing could become very real around here in a matter of weeks.
My wife works at the food bank in town and the roles of those in need have quadrupled in just the last couple months.
You're not being a doom and gloomer, nor are you crying Arramegdon (which I'm not) By advocating that everybody have some sort of plan and preparation just in case. Since I get no feed back I am sorta in the dark as to whether it all even makes any sense.......
What do you think? Am I full of crap or what? :-)
I'm moving on to social/political comment now anyways.....so
How do you like my spiral staircase to the sleeping platform in the small cabin?.......I think it's the smallest I ever seen. of course no code requirements in these parts.
