Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Funny thing friendship is

That sounds sort of Yoda-like, huh? But, it really is a curious beast. I honestly sometimes wonder how I can be friends with some people. I have some pot-smoking friends. I have some criminal friends. I have some loser friends. I have some lazy friends. I have friends who don't take good care of their children. I have friends who don't clean their houses. These are all things I don't like, but I like the people in spite of those traits. I even have some friends who *shuddering* are liberals. It baffles me. They exasperate the hell out of me. I can't talk to them about current events because our conversations get heated and we both are thinking silently (most of the time it is silently) that we can't believe our intelligent friends can be so damned tartar saucing stupid to believe the way they do. I'm sure they feel the same way about me.

I love LabKat with every ounce in my being. She is one of my best friends in the world. I know that no matter what, she has my back. I could call her at 4 a.m. and ask her to come over and she would be there as soon as her cute little Mustang could get her there. I could ask her for the last $20 she has and she'd give it to me. But, I'll be damned if I can understand what happened to her politically. I go read her blog and I have to turn away. Occasionally, I'll go ahead and comment but most of the time I just take a deep breath and don't even bother reading it. It kills me, too, because she is such a good writer. I like to read her stuff. She is damned clever and often I wish I had just a snippet of her talent for telling a story. But, there are times, like today, when I want to reach through the Internet and choke her senseless. Of course, I'll just get her drunk Friday night and we'll avoid political discussions all together instead opting for ogling gay college boys who are mugging with one another on the dance floor. But, that is another story all together, too.

I'm probably the weirdest conservative she knows because I have so many views that probably linger from my granola-eating, barefoot, pro-choice college days. But, for the most part, I'm firmly entrenched on the "right" side of politics. Yeah, there are things I think Bush could do differently or better. Yeah, there are things the Republican party says or promotes that I don't like. But, overall, I agree more with the wingnuts than I do the moonbats.


If I could find the genie in the lamp, after rubbing vigorously and getting my three wishes: I'd wish for good health and long life for my family, an end to financial worries for us and I'd wish that I could shake some sense into LabKat.

*ducking as she throws one of her many watches at me* You know I love you babe ...

    Hey, I MARRIED a conservative. There is no end to my patience.


    I love you too, hon. That's why I refrain from commenting on some of YOUR posts.

    YOu just make me want to smack my head into the wall. Ok, or your head, depending upon the moment.


    And, yeah, it is scary that you surround yourself with conservatives. Are you sure that your moonbat friends will still welcome you?

    shhh, they think she is a spy.

    That is interesting. I just KNEW that J was a total leftie and that is why LabKat has inched a bit farther left than she used to be. But if he's conservative, that means she has become MORE moonbat than she was in her youth, and of her own volition, which is not usually the way things happen. In the same time, I've gone from just left of center to rabid, redassed, wingnut warhawk. It doesn't mean I think Shrub has done a great job, just that he's the only one who would kill terrorists.

    But, then again, she was kind of a complex person all along. I guess it only stands to reason that her psychosocial growth would not happen in a simplistic manner.

    If she had more money, she would be eccentric. As is, though, she's crazier than a fruitbat in a butter churn.

    *ducking and hiding*

    Gadfly assumed that LabKat's husband must be a liberal, too, for LabKat to dive into moonbatism to the extreme that she has. He doesn't know J (LabKat's hubby), so he didn't know that he is a staunch conservative, too. Make sense to you now?

    What the hell are you talking about? I think you're more like me ... you're weird and wild, but politically conservative. Right?

    Hee hee ... Ok, NOW I get it. You are SOOOOO not in that list ... I don't want to name names because they probably know who they are if they read it. Although I could email the list to you if you'd like. Nope, you're not on that list!!! That is why I didn't make the connection!

    Nope, I'd let you know if you were being all scuzzy.
