From a comment on a MSNBC: First Read post about Obama's AARP town hall meetings:
Make sure to show up at any of these klan (oops) I mean town hall meetings where the lies from the right will be flying faster than the shuttle....
Because people asking questions makes them racists. Or something.
If you see anyone that appears to be breaking into my house, please call the police. If it is a criminal that is thwarted from stealing my property, I will be forever grateful to you.
If, on the other hand, it is I or my children, I will still be very grateful that I have neighbors who care enough about me and the neighborhood to be concerned about suspicious behavior.
If the police arrive while I'm still stressed from whatever problem caused me to have to break into my own house, I'll be happy to know that their response time is to good. The more thorough they are in making sure that I or my children belong in this home and that no one is here that doesn't belong, the more secure I will feel in their ability to do their job thoughtfully and well.
Only a pompous ass would not understand that if you're in your home you know: that you belong there, whether anyone else is there, and whether there are any weapons (and whether or not you might have plans to use them). The police officer only knows that a neighbor was concerned that someone might have been trying to enter the property illegally. When you have the advantage of more information, it is your duty to let the officer know what you know.
Unless you're friends with the President.
I killed off most of the petunias in the hanging basket when I forgot to water it for a couple of days. The bunny finished it off.
I'm not sure what the chipmonk was looking for. He climbed up on the deck, looked around, and left.
What would it be like to more uniquely experience the 2009 IdeaFestival before, during and after the four magical days in September? If you want to create with others a deeper and more immersive IF experience….then IdeaFestival 2.0 may be for you.
Are there degrees of uniqueness?
