Bucky, you don't have to eat crow or anything. Just change your ways. If you can become a progressive humanist, pro-peace, pro-American labor, pro-health care for all Americans, pro-civil rights(including gays), that would be a nice start toward a friendship with me, and probably many other people on this forum.
- Just change my ways, you never met half way.
-progressive humanist-i have my God i will not change that, i will not force any change on anyone i will only share my beliefs and you should do the same.don't get me wrong i would like to see you be a christian like you would like me to be a progressive humanist . how about this i will not insult progressive humanist if you don't insult christians . we can discuss them openly. i'm not saying we can't poke fun
-pro-peace--i'm for peace but i also believe peace has a heavy price tag.
-pro-American labor- i'm already this one, this can get to be a real long drawn out battle on either side of the fence. for instance people say republicians are for big business, well in some ways i agree with that and my reason is that i work for big business. i never worked for a poor person, i mean hey if the government wants to give big business huge tax breaks and big business uses that money saved to build more plants and stay in america i'm happy with that , i believe in feeding the pig that is going to feed me.
-pro-health care for all Americans- i'm all for all americans having health care but i just don't don't believe in government controlled health care . i believe in giving companies incintives and tax breaks to and for providing health care.
-pro-civil rights(including gays), -i am for civil rights but i'm against government control of that , last thing i want is for the government or some lawyer telling me that i can't say merry christmas. and what excatly do you mean by the gays? they have the same rights that i do. the only difference is that i myself do not want to marry another man. plus my wife would be pissed.you know i have friends 2 in particular that are like you , i work with them we get in some heated discussions then we laugh .
and we live to do it another day.
your friend, Buckshot
