24 Kinds of Mental Disease Passing as Normal

The "Xenophobe" square should be replaced by one labeled "Libertarian". Text should read: "I support all of the policies favored by the people in the other 23 squares by insisting that anyone who wants to can bring their failed culture here and vote for progressive totalitaria."

Suggested text is probably too long. Change to read: "Because I have Asperger's."

The note at the top right is the only necessary one to the entire page. It's a batch-lot of straw-man arguments, each wrong or incomplete in some key detail. It may comfort some smug, self-satisfied persons, but imparts no real knowledge.

There's only about 3 people in this country that are NOT in one of them categories.

Tim needs to go read up on what libertarianism is.

libertarian? Wait, that's the same as liberal, right?
No, wait, "Libertarian", (*sigh* Cap L)that's like the "liberal" attitudes toward usurpation of gub'mint authority by the Founding Fathers, except by nihilistic anarchists,...right?
And...and...NAZIs..those are the authoritarian bad guys I saw in movies, like Republicans, and NOT National Union Labor Party dupe thugs inflicting imprisonment, taxes, fees, with "new rules" for "special" offenses deemed offensive, because....economics, or something...right?
Wait, how many panels were there?
I guess the closest one to "You keep using that word, I don't think you REALLY know what it means" was the one alluding to "The Supreme Court/President/Legislature has reinterpreted the abstract of...."

I was going through the entry vestibule at the townhall building to find out where I get the plans for my house that was built a few years prior. A dood was coming out at the same time in this election year and he said, "Hey bud, do you know about the Libertarian Party?" I said I did and he said he was running for county commissioner and would be glad to answer any questions I might have. I looked right in his eyes and asked, "Where do you stand on property rights?" He said if he is elected he going to do everything he can to get the property taxes lowered in the county. I said, "You have no serious concern about property rights and should stop playing the poser game." He sputtered something about being the only candidate really advocating for the citizens but I was already peeling out of there. This was in 2006 and he lost. He's still running and I saw him in a tent at the county fair this year and asked him the same question and he's still stupid. My wife asked me why do I engage these people and without looking at her I said, "Here's your sign." Guess who didn't get any cotton candy?

I think I seen one a them libertarians the other day.
I was out running errands, in the line at Walmart for meds. Behind me comes this guy, looked like he was on a Polack bowling team. Mid-forties, wouldn't know matching colors if it bit him in the butt.

"Whassatcha got?" He asks, pointing to the cafe curtain rod I was holding.

I spoke not a word, showed him.

"Oh" he sez, "thought it was one a them canes. My buddy has one with four feet".

"Yes, when we get older we lose equilibrium." I said (my mistake).

"Oh" he sez, "I lost my equilibrium when I had that aneurism, back in '97."

"You're lucky to be alive" sez I.

"I dunno, I'm waiting for them to come get me. Y'know, go up into space".

"I'm five foot ten." I said with finality, "you won't need any money up there."

He nodded sagely and I saw behind his eyes he'll be chewing on that for a while.

The art of conversation, one of my strong suits.
