A Good Quote

It's not that Conservatives aren't compassionate. We just don't let our compassion get in the way of rational thought. ~ Me

Compassion is emotional. When emotions rise, intelligence plummets. It is natural to be affected by emotion, as emotion is the result of our reaction to the world around us. But once we have been affected, we have to step back, ignore emotion and analyze the situation in a cool, calm and objective manner and address it according to what that analysis reveals.

"ignore emotion and analyze"

Ah so, not so fast, Grasshoppah! As you may recall, it was Capt. Kirk's emotion that always got him in trouble, but it was his compassionate nature that made him the leader Spock could never be. It is what separates us Humans from the Vulcans...and, I might add, the damned dirty apes.

It never fails. Every time I write a blogpost about Liberal idiocy, some Lib (like Ducky) comes along and proves my point."

My nomination for Mark's best comment of the year!!!

Gotta remember this while I listen to Michele "Psycho" Bachmann and Rick "Big Hair" Perry fight it out for the dominionist vote.

Speaking of rational thought. Here's Ducky, who isn't capable of rational thought.

Mark, even your ad hominems are cliches.

You need to work on your material.

Hey, that's an excellent bit of wisdom, Mark.

Trader Rick (Master Po),

The analysis may indeed reveal a compassionate solution. Just sayin'. :)

To put it another way, one is more compassionate by acting in a cool-headed, less emotional way thereby enacting logical and common-sense that will result in providing the right solution that serves more people better.

That is "logical and common-sense answers" that will result in providing the right solution that serves more people better.

I wonder if the 40% the country who vote Republican, 99% of whom actually make less than $70,000 a year, realize that it is they who are in fact "The Mark", the "Fish" to be plundered

I am not sure they realize that things going to stay this way no matter who (DEM or REP) is in charge because the ones who are getting richer and RICHER are getting richer off of them.

Go watch some more TV... have some more Cheesey Poofs from Walmart they come in a BUCKET !!

Yup, These "Proud Americans" : i.e. the cream of the planet are being diverted to keep their eyes off the ball.

It is so easy to do !!

So many obese and there's still plenty of food and drink to keep them happy.

So just eat some Fritos and have another beer,,, and repeat after me...

"It's all Obama's Fault "
"Next time We will fix everything"

Hey.. The Game's on. Got any more beer... ??

Good Lord, that makes no sense at all!

Looking at the photos of you getting out of shape inspired me, Ranger Rick.

You are an inspiration.

I don't know which is funnier, your gut or your shirts.

Mark, very well said.
You can't run a country on FEELINGS without facts and understanding human nature, can you.
You can ruin one, however......
