While I agree with you on that level OT of the wildlife on the roads, I disagree about like how we differ about Birthdays and Christmas trees. Nothing wrong with a super bowl party, or just watching it by yourself, or with family, and enjoying the game. Having a friendly pool in a get togather, and even having a few beers, and watching the commercials. Its a national past time, but I do draw the line about getting into the car, when its all over.
I believe we are always going to disagree about christmas and or other holidays..birthdays etc. No problem with me on this.
No ..nothing wrong with someone watching the bowel game. I just will not be doing it nor purchasing the products advertised. Not for me thanks.
I do not tell another how to spend their hard earned monies...that is their business and individual liberty to do so. I just choose mostly when people go one way or to follow a certain thing ..it is a warning flag to look closer at the sociological event for certain markers.
I too draw the line at operating machinery when drinking ...handling a gun , reloading, or any such. I greatly disapprove of such conduct anywhere at anytime.
I am not against alcohol. I just choose not to have it center stage as a "Lifestyle " of importance. I have plenty of alcohol for my own uses around here Greeny2. I just refuse to make a career out of consuming it in lieu of things I consider more important and front stage..including doing nothing. But that is my way Greeny2.
I also know of to many people who have indeed made a career out of alcohol and ruined many a life around them including that of their children. I greatly disapprove of such conduct and will separate from such peoples quickly. This too is my way.
You do what you want at your house. You are driving that bus and I think it best that you do so..not me.
I also believe you driving your own bus is best..and not government.
This too is my way.
By the way...Greeny2. I believe Rath has issues..personal issues. I have seen people with degrees following this same pattern.
You often see me describing this as "good cop/Bad cop." They must always find bad guys on whom to vent their ire or powerlessness.
This is becoming standard bill of fare in politics of late and also very predictable.
When I see someone like Rath using this technique in a "Pro Australia " method..I am forced to ask myself if Rath and their people are even Australian ..or merely an import.
Good cop/ Bad cop...and looking for someone else to beat up in order to support ones position ..good guys/bad guys..is becoming standard bill of fare in education and politics today...since politics is financing public education.
One learns when reading material like that of Rath to seek out what is missing or not posted and connect that into a pattern..against those who invoke thier ire.
As I stated...to someone else..I am not into this Unzipping type stuff ..to see who has the biggest one. But you can see this over and over in the quest for oneupmanship.
Some of us outgrew that stuff years and years ago. When you know this it gets more difficult for these people to emote you into not thinking. Because it becomes obvious that emotions/instant gratification is their number one baillywick. They must prey on people who know even less than they in order to set the hook. And so too it is with what is attempting to pass for leadership today.
That these or similar types of people are in leadership positions today is a scary thought.
For they can cause huge amounts of chaos..but little leadership. Same fingerprint as on these boards.
Thanks to all for their posts,
