    Where can I sign up for this civil war? I have a lot of uppercase at my disposal.

    Is this an on going war??
    It's mostly an armchair war.  Typical battle grounds include Facebook, Twitter, and a host of on-line forums.
    So with this war it just amounts to hurt feelings....
    When I refer to the so called "Civil War" I'm referring to a war of words.  I suppose some of it is about hurt feelings.   People want to be on a team, even a losing team. That's why most Americans are either Republican or Democrat which mostly is perceived as conservative/liberal.  Independents, Greens, etc are not seen as a valid team.  So most join one of the two recognized teams.   If your team is losing, that's when the hurt feelings come in.

    And really, most people Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, don't give two shits about some Alex Jones fantasy war.  Sure, there are extremest who will skirmish, but the average person has other things to do.  How many people do any of us know that we really think are going to take up arms and fight their neighbor or whatever?  Very few.  It's all a big crock of shit.  
    Anyone of us Americans, that think they're going to need to take up arms against their neighbor, is either crazy, or stupid.  At least, I'd like to think so.  It's insanity.

    I totally agree, Gtilley.

    However, in the event that craziness should somehow break out, I'm prepared!

    I wore the pink bunny costume to Santacon a few years ago.  It was a big hit.

    You can Google some giffs that say something about how "short" the 2nd Civil War will be.  Most of them have side-by-side pictures, one of some dumpy looking lady with  liberal signage, the other with a bunch of lunk headed red necks with massive guns and greased faces.  What the fuck is wrong with these people, trying to make it look like the average person is on one side or the other like everyone  is that idiotic?  The average person is just not like that.  What a bunch of shit.  People making this shit up probably spend most of their hours on the couch eating cheeze doodles and watching idiotic TV shows.  Pathetic.

    How do you know what a cheeze doodle is?  That's an east coast thing!

    You'd think it was because I lived in western NY for a couple years (Chautauqua County) but that was in the mid to late 70's and I don't remember seeing them then.  No, the only reason I know cheeze doodles is because I read James Howard Kunstler's Clusterfuck blog and he loves to throw that term out there from time to time.  Funny man that James Howard!
