  •  LOL! That was me going to college! (4+ / 0-)

    Skills in one environment don't guarantee skills in another.  I don't care if everyone knows how to milk a cow or butcher a hog - but, if we got back to pre-industrial age due to lack of fuel or war, I might be a good person to know ;)

    Maybe I stretched the point.  But it just seems to be a lack of common sense pervading so many things.

      of course we don't think you are a troll- just people popping for some discussion on an interesting topic.

      •  I'm glad you don't think I'm a troll. (0+ / 0-)

        I suspect my views are a little different than the majority here - perhaps more conservative, or even Libertarian, in some areas.  But I don't put mine out just to cause a problem - I think it's valid to examine and discuss the issues.  I honestly hold the views I express - just as I honestly, passionately support the campaign of Sen. Obama, environmental causes, legal protection on civil rights issues, universal health care and a lot of other things which are consistent with what I see expressed here.  I feel "at home" here, even if I don't always agree with everything.  We Democrats are an odd bunch at times.  I am now very, very involved with our local Democratic party and I keep thinking of the Will Rogers' quote:  I don't belong to any organized party.  I'm a Democrat.
