While I don't fully understand the decision to split this out of the music thread I do understand that this is not my house.
I sometimes/often use music to help illustrate a point I want to make or ask a question.
Since this thread has now been moved to the politics section...If I want to use music to add emphasis to my thoughts or comments here, does it necessarily have to be political?
I'm not trying to be facetious and I am not angry about this. I just want to make sure I don't step on anyone's toes again.
I blend topics, that's just what I have always done. It takes concentration for me to separate one issue from another because in my view, everything is connected. Religion, politics, economics, personal relationships, you and me. If I had been more studious in my youth I may have developed the ability to communicate my disjointed thought process more succinctly but I wasn't and here we are. My brain is like a seive
. I can't help it, I was born this way
I'm the kind of man who has proudly worn a skirt in public
while walking arm and arm with his girlfriend. I'm the kind of man who took his oath to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies foreign or domestic seriously. I'm the kind of man who fearlessly
questions authority. I am also the kind of man who forgets what he's talking about sometimes. I am easily distracted.
So, after 41 years of living on this Earth I know where I stand on a few issues. The weird tribal divide between the Democratic party and the Republican party isn't one of the issues I am clear about. Other than the fact that they are at war with each other and will argue vehemently about everything from what the meaning of "is" is to the difference between Viagra vs. abortion. One says potato the other says "Fuck you". And they flip flop
. Always opposing each other just because that is apparently what they were designed to do.
When it comes to political ideology and logic, my head explodes because when I try to use rational thought to question the arguments the left is using against the right, I see the same tactics used by the right to discredit my questions. Not always, but often enough. It works both ways. On other sites, when I try to use rational thought to question the arguments the right is using against the left...it's like looking at a mirror image. To me, it is utter madness. But I guess that's what I get for sitting on the fence being JAFO.
Right now, I feel like dedicating this song to my self.
