    For some odd reason I was born conservative. Never dallied at all in “progressivism” save for my 2 year vacation into a marijuana haze while in college—and that was more pretense than anything else as it got me chicks. Nowadays I make Genghis Khan look like a New York ballerina. And if there is one thing I know about it is New York ballerinas.

    Though I dallied in my yoot I believe I have always been “conservative”.
    Better still, knowing right and wrong.

      I only fully understood right and wrong once I returned to the Church. Once that happened (1991) everything had to change. Everything did change—but it took a long time.

        Amen Mr. Austin! – Knowing right and wrong is knowing what God’s words say it is, – not what you learn by walking through a mine field.

    My hometown, and the whole of the Olympic Peninsula, is democrat – but (Henry M) Jacksonian and Roosevelt democrats. I went to a Young Democrat convention, in Seattle, when I was either 16 or 17; it was the beginning of my senior year in high school. I watched the Seattle YDs pad the registration and votes like drunken sailors on leave. The non-Seattle YDs, my group, couldn’t out-cheat the sonsabitches.

    I learned, for the first time, that I agreed with almost none of the party planks as voted; I was not a democrat by logic, although certainly I was one by birth. When I reached voting age, my votes were party-line GOPe.

      Jacksonian Democrats have gone the way of the Whigs. Not one member of the national Democrat Party resembles in any way “Scoop” Jackson. Even JFK would today be considered a right-wing extremist by the modern Democrats. Nowadays the ideological distance between AOC and Biden and Pelosi is a but few pronouns. The Party allows no dissent. All are on board.

      All Democrats worship the same god, and willingly and joyfully do his bidding.

      My hometown in the Olympic Peninsula is the Berkeley of Western Washington. You must live west of me. We had, (have?), our own BLM painting on the main street, and government like the Soviet Union.

        Port Townsend?

        I grew up in Hoquiam, and you can tell by my name where my family originates on the Peninsula. BLM? o holy fuhk that is so stupid!
