The suicidal retort

Howdy, I like Ron, Gary, baking scones in the winter and my white linen drapes. I sleep on a nice comfortable mattress. Do these things make me less of a man or is it my appreciation for flowers and sunsets?

What saddens me deeply, very deeply is that there are probably many aspects of my lifestyle and actions that you simply could not live with. Ask my wife, she'll give many examples on request I am quite sure.

What I can't figure out is how in a whole movement full of individualists and counter-conformists, some of us still manage to stand out as oddballs. Well what the heck, I got one reputation and I might as well waste it. I really don't care where the movement goes from here, I'm just gonna have fun watching it get there. Can't control it, no it to control. We've factionalized. There's elements of the movement that have been largely silent in this whole electoral process and they will reassert. Some may try to rise and lead "the movement" and they will make fools of themselves. We've gone to seed. And that's what grass roots is all about.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
