MUSINGS FROM THE ICONOCLASM!
If I haven't dissed it--it ain't worth dissing!

- On a political continuum with Extreme Liberal at 1 and Extreme Conservative at 10, I can be found at position “P.”
I get a chuckle at much of what passes for liberal thought, but don’t much chuckle at anything conservative. Quite frankly, I consider American conservatism to be one of the most dangerous pieces of garbage ever to pollute the planet Earth.
A major problem with this mindset is occasioned by the fact that I am a 72 year old, white male who works at a county golf course in one of the richest, most conservative counties in the United States. Since I get free golf (at five county courses) as part of my compensation package, I play 4 – 5 times a week. Bottom line: Goddam near everyone I work with or play golf with, almost all of whom are 70+ year old white, males, is a die-hard conservative. I love each and every one of ‘em—love every bone in their heads. Truly! Sure is a tough haul, though—‘cause I am not given to holding my tongue.
Just think of all the fun I have at work and play!
Don’tcha envy me?

TIME FOR THE FRINGE LEFT TO WAKE UP!
Barack Obama is the first president ever to get a comprehensive medical care bill passed and signed…yet the reaction of much of the far left was to complain that the plan did not go far enough and lacked a “single payer” feature.
Now he becomes the first president to publicly state that he supports the rights of gays to marry same sex partners…and he ended “don’t ask; don’t tell”…yet the reaction of much of the far left is to complain that he took too long in doing both.
The far left has become as nutty and unrealistic as the far right…and instead of helping to stop our nation’s lurch to the right, they are inadvertently accelerating the move.
Time for the folk on the fringe left to wake up and smell the coffee. Progress is made one step at a time…and demanding teleportation instead is the stuff of science fiction, not reality.
