Mith - I haven't had a Schlitz ("the beer that made Milwaukee famous") in years! Do they still make it?
Wow, me either! I think Schlitz, along with Pabst, another Milwaukee 'founder beer' have been relegated to the 'cheap list.' I occasionally see Pabst in oversize cans in gas station coolers next to the other 'malt liquors.' In fact, come to think of it, I may have seen a Schlitz under the name "Malt Liquor"(with the bull on the can), similarly situated. I don't know about now, but back in the day, both were pretty decent beers, if you like German lager or pilsner (which I do) But thanks to the microbrew and imported ale craze, lagers and pilsners are considered too plebeian now, or something.
Then color me plebeian --
As I hang around here, you will learn how warped I am too!
From what I saw in the first few comments there are a lot of religious trolls mulling around. Anyone up for crashing Christian Mingle ?
anyone notice that kelly is a member of "think athiest" in order too post,hmmmmm.
There's the thing. Theists are constantly rude and offensive and downright hateful towards atheists but they consider that it is (a) their right to behave like this (b) it is for our own good (who are they kidding?) and (c) they are actually being polite compared with the atheists who complain about both their behavior and the doctrines that make them behave like this.
Yes. I was at a rally several years ago in front of the local court house. This was during of run up to a vote on gay marriage. There was the local TV station truck and a few pro and con folks at either end of the block.
I walked to the con side and was able to find a very young kid that was all suited up, and hot with the spirit(SICK). He introduced himself as a member and understudy of the founder of the infamious OCA-Oregon Citizen Alliance which had been promoting GLBT hate and political actions. We talked a few moments, we compaired general outlines of our individual metaphysical positions, then he jumped into this rather ugly soapbox of how the gays where going to be death of civilization, how christian beliefs were being trampled, how education was dieing because of humanist envolvement..adnausium. To me it looked like there was just too much crap to wade through, there was no mind left, just unthinking crud.
This is one reason I do not wish to waste my time. Sadly about the only thing I might support is different forms of suppression to marginalize the crazies so they can't cause any more trouble. Figure turn around just might be fair play!
The OCA passed through bad times, was sued, and disbanded, but the crazies still hang on to what ever crap they can find.
This morning I got a call from someone I used to work for. She was rather conservative, blaming Obama for the economy, believes he is Moslum, not born in the US, black so not deserving to be president, the blame for our wars, a moslum terrorist that stole the office..adnausium. Nothing has changed, if this crap continues I fear the worst for all of us! I turned the woman down for work. I have a limit to my revulsion..
If the original sin was sex, aren't children enough of a punishment?
