Us and Them

Chris, from the independent1 has a nice little story about the difference between republicans and democrats. It's pretty funny and actually not too far from the truth. In fact, being the firm republican that I am, I would say it's about dead on. Read the sattire here.

Ok, something's wrong with the link. It goes to the page, but does not take you right to the post as it should. Have to figure out why *sigh*. In the meantime, here's the post in it's entirety. Also, aside from the link above you can get to Chris' page via the link on the sidebar under freedom fighters.

Another e-mail showing how Republicans view Democrats:

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican." "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?" "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?" "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow now, it's MY fault.
