A good political chuckle …

I am sometimes amused when some people refer to me as a conservative and a few others refer to me as a liberal when I assess the current state of American political affairs. I am neither for I stopped being enamored with political systems a long time ago. They exist but their existence alone is no excuse for flag waving.

I believe there would be less flag waving if people were honest about what they want out of a political system and after real deep analysis concluded that they were getting way less than what they were promised. And if they concluded that a political system was giving them a significant portion of what they wanted, I would then have to question their level of self-esteem because anyone finding a system whose primary purpose is to regulate the behavior of humans to be fulfilling their needs may have been a candidate for the central character in “12 Days a Slave.”

Needless to say, I enjoy pissing off both sides of the political spectrum. It ensures a balanced perspective while I enjoy a good laugh at their expense …
