Moonbats & Wingnuts

My comments on Mixter's Mix about "moonbats"/"wingnuts"...

I clicked on blogs listed in wikipedia as representing left/right side of political spectrum...what I read was some far-out tripe...I don't know if they believe the scat they publish or if they do it for viewership...but what a bunch of scat...

God fearin', gun totin', hatin' gays, hatin' foreigners, hatin 'all other religions(excluding christianity)...where is this "compassionate" conservativism so bally-hoo'ed in the early 90's? What happened to smaller government and balanced budgets? The republican party has been taken over by neo-cons, religious right and the NRA...

As for the left side of the argument...it is mostly about bitchin' and complainin' about what the republicans are doing...what about ideas, social movements that the democratic party used to be built on? Most elected democrats are doing everything they can not be labeled as a democrat, liberal, or progressive...the party needs to get past their identity crisis...I think the adage DINO(Democrat in Name Only) applies just as RINO does to the republicans...

My hope for the future is that this medium might evolve to help our political process get beyond its current state of inertia and not dissolve into a hodge-podge meaningless I saw today...

Hey BigBuddhaPuppy,

True, all true....it is always easier to bitch about the current state of affairs than to offer up solutions. I think why so many of us are so pissed now, is that so much of what passed as cautious warnings about Iraq was pissed on by the current administration. So, when asked now how to solve the mess, it's hard not to say "told you so." But, you're right, we have to find solutions to this and other messes (global warming, anyone?).

After having our reality denied for so long by the media, and seeing the tragedies we tried to avoid, I suppose the venting of pent up anger feels good for the time being....And now we (non neo-cons) are the ones expected to produce the ideas to clean up the neo-con mess....I'm sure most will move beyond this....

Yep, I agree with you, and perhaps I need to be reminded to view the next step forward before I do my venting...

The reality of this mess is that it's many years in the making, onewoman, and I'm afraid it will take many more to clean it up. If only Dubya didn't waste the brief moment post-9/11 when he could've acted like a real leader and rallied the nation behind a true movement away from oil, which would free us from having to place Christian soldiers in the Middle East. A true "moon landing" moment, when we could utilize Universities and big businesses together to come up with a true alternative/hybrid fuel goal.........
