Actually Coz it is you who have gotten "worked up" on a regular basis. I don't see the responses you claim others are having. Just beCoz You say it does not make it so. Most folks are seeing your responses as pretty erratic and a touch bi-polar.
What is your long term pain treatment protocol? If you are dosing on Oxi it might be time for a change.

SCHIST!

I am tired of the village idiots teasing each other!

Can we move on!

Sigh! Sorry, I never could relate to the village idiot, but I also never wanted to tease him/them.

Fritz, you are now in the center of the poo-flinging monkey cage. Definitely not a good place to hang out (esp. when the Friday night beers have started)...

Not a chance (that I'll ask about your climbing), Fritz. I value your views as much as any other rational, articulate, respectful person.

I get it Coz. No worries.
But, and in all seriousness, when that ankle emerges from the protective cocoon don't let yourself get carried away trying to come back too quickly. Give yourself ample time for a full recovery. Re-injury is not an option.

FYI injury recovery and rehab of a prosthetic joint are unfortunately my areas of expertise.

In non-satirical news, legislatures generally assume their constituents are a lot more conservative than they actually are: http://www.scholarsstrategynetwork.org/sites/default/files/ssn_key_findings_broockman_and_skovron_on_what_politicians_believe_about_their_constituents1.pdf

To be effective, representative democracy requires that elected legislators understand what their constituents believe and want – and American politicians regularly declare that they are
championing the priorities of voters in their districts. But are they? In late 2012, prior to the
November elections, we surveyed nearly 2,000 candidates running for state legislative offices
across the United States. Our questions were straightforward: we asked the candidates to
estimate the percentage of the people in their districts who would agree that:
• same-sex marriage should be legal
• the federal government should implement a universal healthcare program
• all federal welfare programs should be abolished

We then used a large national survey and information about the characteristics of the voters in
each district to estimate whether the voters truly supported each issue in each place. We found
major disconnects between voters and their would-be elected representatives, and our findings
raise important questions about the health of U.S. democracy and what might be done to make
politics more truly representative.

A Disconnect between Legislators and Constituents

When we compare what legislators believe their constituents want to their constituents’ actual
views, we discover that politicians hold remarkably inaccurate perceptions. Pick an American
state legislator at random, and chances are that he or she will have massive misperceptions about
district views on big-ticket issues, typically missing the mark by 15 percentage points.
What is more, the mistakes legislators make tend to fall in one direction, giving U.S. politics a
rightward tilt compared to what most voters say they want. As the following figures show,
legislators usually believe their constituents are more conservative than they actually are. ** Our
attitude measurements are most accurate on the questions about same sex marriage and universal
health insurance – and in both instances the legislators’ guesses about their constituents’ views
were 15-20 percent more conservative, on average, than the true public support for same-sex
marriage or universal health care present in their districts. **


So start calling your congressmen already.

From the Climate Change thread, Sumner writes...
Perhaps you aren't aware, but the more radical elements desire to see a reduction of human populace from the current 7 billion down to their magical "sustainability level" of approx. 2 billion.

^^^^Pretty much nails it, but for the 2 billion amount.

http://www.secretsofthefed.com/22-quotes-that-lay-out-the-elites-agenda/
1. “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”
Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.
8. “Ultimately, our objective is to welcome the Soviet Union back into the world order. Perhaps the world order of the future will truly be a family of nations.”

Don't get me wrong - I love when last century's memes get pulled from long term storage for lack of an idea relevant to the modern world. It's comforting, like Old Ed up the street (now passed, sadly), calling' the wifie a spaghetti bender and refusing to give up his driver's license (until he hit a guy in a phone booth). Kissinger n Kommies Komin' for our Kids? I LOVE that.

As part of the Illuminati, it's also in my interests to label such revelations as crazy and delay the Dumb White Guy Revolution as long as possible.

Damn good question.

No offense intended, but people commonly call themselves 'dyslexic' or 'ADD' because it's easier to shift the responsibility for a lack of effort to pay attention to detail. I was actually diagnosed as a kid for ADD, but came to realize that this challenge could be overcome by working very hard at applying myself.
