  • Trying to find myself
  • I received this in an e-mail and now I know who I am.

    I used to think I was just a regular guy, but...

    I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
    I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist.
    I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.
    I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.
    I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
    I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
    I am older than 70, which makes me a useless old man.
    I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
    I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
    I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
    I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
    I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

    Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends a “basket of deplorables”.

    Please help me come to terms with the new me . . . because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!

    I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!

    I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly!

    Funny . . . it's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! As if all this crap wasn't enough to deal with.
    I'm now afraid to go into either restroom!

    In God We Trust.

  • Makes me think of the story about an old cowboy at a bar somewhere in the west having a beer. In walks this young lady who walks over to him and sits down. After a bit she asks him if he is a real cowboy. Taken aback a bit, but wanting to talk to the attractive person sitting beside him, he replies "Yes ma'am, I guess I am..."

    She sits there a bit and tells him she is a lesbian. He asks her what is a lesbian. She goes on to explain that she thinks of other women all the time, and how they look and feel, etc. She finishes her drink and leaves.

    He is still sitting there and a young couple come in and strike up a conversation with him. One of them asks him if he is a real cowboy. He answers "Well, up til about an hour ago I thought I was, but now that I think about it I must be a lesbian"

  • Some where out in West Texas it's a hot dry dusty day at the local bus stop where a cowboy, an Indian and a Muslim are waiting for the bus. They start a conversation about the weather and a few events when the Indian says, "Once we were many, Now we are few." The Muslim says, "Once we were few, Now we are many!" The wind blows, the dust swirls and the cowboy spits on the ground and say's, "We ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet"
