    Wonder which side of the fence you are on? Here's something from Jeff Foxworthy


    Which side of the fence?

    If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

    If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
    If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
    If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

    If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
    If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

    If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    Democrats demand that those they don't like be shut down.

    If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
    A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

    If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

    If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
    A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended".

    It's humorous, but involves a little cherry picking.

    If a Democrat doesn't like abortion, he doesn't have one.
    If a Republican doesn't like abortion, he seeks to ban it.

    If a Democrat doesn't like a man wedding a man, he doesn't get married to one.
    If a Democrat doesn't like a man wedding a man, he passes DOMA.

    I like Foxworthy's comedy; and I understand he's basically a nice guy.

    But certainly he knows enough "homosexuals" personally to realize that we're not asking for "legislated respect". We're asking for our civil rights.

    I'll probably still laugh at his "you may be a redneck" schtick, but this was a bit disappointing.

    MITT TAKES A CLEAR STAND ON DOMA:

    Romney on ‘Defense of Marriage Act’


    MITT SAID " certainly I would defend the Defense of Marriage Act which the current president has refused to defend. I believe that the Defense of Marriage Act was well constructed and should be maintained. "

    November 9, 2011: Romney meeting with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register.

    Bill Clinton wrote DOMA? I was taught the legislature writes the laws; the President only signs it once it is passed by Congress.


    (in Canada & the U.K. ) the equivalent is "signing it into law" by ""giving Royal Assent" by affixing the crown's imprimatur as the head of state.



    I thought Americans understood their government better than that. (except when it suits them to feign ignorance one day and shout the relevant facts at their opponents if possible.)


    No national education standards mean Americans lack a common base of accepted facts to work from, no shared practise of critical thinking that would render everyone's thinking and conclusions as intrinsically sound as anothers.

    (There is broad disrespect for expertise)


    (There is no broad sense among individuals how much they do NOT know.

    If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he does what the NRA says.
    If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he tries for reasonable gun control/laws (which the Republican will obstruct.)

    If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
    If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he doesn’t, either.

    If a Republican is a homosexual, he hides it and calls that being “discreet”, and he supports anti-gay candidates.
    If a Democrat is a homosexual, he is honest about it, and fights for equality.

    If a Republican is down-and-out, he votes to cut taxes on the wealthy and supports candidates who liquidate jobs and ship them overseas.
    A Democrat thinks we’re all in this together, and works to provide a cushion to those less fortunate.

    If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he complains bout liberal bias; then he buys his own broadcasting network and floods it with right-wing talking heads, and tries to defund NPR.
    Democrats support NPR and listens to the broadcasters he feels are fair and balanced.

    if a Republican is a non-believer, he supports tax money going to religious schools and religion-based social programs, and insists that candidates be “believers”.
    A Democrat believes religion has no place in politics.

    If a Republican decides he needs health care, he shops for it if he can afford it, dies if he can’t – and thinks that’s great. And obstructs any public health-care, unless he’s Romney, and then he does, or doesn’t, or didn’t, or something.
    A Democrat thinks were all in this together and works, against Republican obstruction, to construct a fair universal health-care model.

    If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
    A Democrat will refute it because it’s not true.

    If a Republican thinks Democrats may vote, he invents ways to stop them.

    Correction:
    A Democrat works to register voters, living or dead, legal or not, registered under a different name or not. Very inclusive.

    No, he's talking about Bill Clinton..... Republicans always look to the past to support why our rights should be withheld in the present day.icon_wink.gif

    President Harry Truman, a Democrat, also did very little to advance gay rights.

    NOW BACK TO PRESENT DAY......AND YOUR CURRENT CHOICE:


    Romney on ‘Defense of Marriage Act’


    MITT SAID " certainly I would defend the Defense of Marriage Act which the current president has refused to defend. I believe that the Defense of Marriage Act was well constructed and should be maintained. "

    As an aside, is there a YouTube where Jeff Foxworthy says exactly this, or an excerpt from one of his books? Chain e-mails are always sent out by crazy uncles with stuff like this, where when you dig backward far enough and find some random guy in his mama's basement not important enough to be taken seriously by anyone, but then appends his personal thoughts with, "Look! Here's something Bill Cosby said!" and away we go. (We get a LOT of "Bill Cosby (non-)statements" that go straight to the junk pile)

    dayumm, Yes, THIS stuff usually originates with

    " some random guy in his mama's basement not important enough to be taken seriously by anyone".

    Actually, I have sympathy for that guy. HIS LIFE SUCKS and he needs to embrace the theory that it's not his fault.

    Rush and FOX News tell him that he can't get ahead because the Black President is giving everything away to the Blacks and Mexicans.

    Perhaps the OP is feeling some sort of misery in his life that he needs to explain away as not of his own making.

    PITY THEM.

    If a republican is down-and-out they try to better thier situation.
    If a democrat is down-and-out they do nothing to better themself, live on welfare for life and want everyone to be miserable like they are and then demand free stuff from the government.

    Ok, I just can't resist, nor can I believe it hasn't been said.
    If you get your political insight from Jeff Foxworthy, you might be a redneck. icon_biggrin.gif
