Very good.

In fact that video is TOO good!



Its not only persuaded me to become a moderate....

it caused me to join the EXTREME middle of the road!

In fact...I am SO angry, and SO extreme in my moderation that I have NO CHOICE but to become.... a Gerald Ford terrorist!

James Garfield is our martyr!

You have two choices in the U.S.:

Be a far-left anarchist, or be a far-right MAGA supporter.

It does seem that way sometimes.

A person on either side has to resist getting caught up in the tribal passions. You may sympathize with group A, but it doesnt mean that have 100 percent agree with everyone in group A.

When I saw the thread title, my first reaction was "it also makes you feel self-righteous and justified to treat your opponents like crap", that I opened it and saw John Cleese's face and knew he'll cover all that and then some! :lol:

Thank you for posting it, TuskenR, I have a suspicion that some extremists will be able to watch this and not recognise themselves :twisted:

But I truly *AM* the champion of the Truth!

Look: "The Oracle of Truth".
It is in my job description, god damn it! 8O

Humanity is so, so petty self-serving and embarrassing. <sigh> :roll:
