And I am whatever you say I am

I get mail. And when I make posts like the few I made about school lunches I get a lot of mail.

According to today's mail, I may be one of many things, one none of a couple of things. For instance:

baaaa.jpgI am a socialist.
I am a bleeding-heart liberal.
I am a conservative who was hit on the head with a brick.
I am a an embarassment to Republicans.
I must hand in my Right-Wing Conspiracy Club Card.
I should go hang out with anarchists in communes.
I am a zionist pig (well, that had to do with a previous post, not the lunch thing).
I have my head up my ass.
I am a thief.
I am ungrateful.
I need my head examined.
I am a Republican scum bucket (again, on a different subject).
I am a twit.
I am a Marxist.
I am half a socialist, which is just as bad as being a full-on socialist, according to the author of that email.

So, what am I? Damned if I know. They haven't made a label yet that would fit me. And I'm guessing that a lot of you fall under that no-label category as well. I just find it very interesting to be called a socialist and a Republican scum-bucket on the same day. Quite amusing, actually.

It seems there are an awful lot of people out there who think that one must join a party and then subscribe to every single idea put out by that party. Toe the party line, so to speak.

People who do that are not called Republicans or Democrats or Greens. They are called sheep.

I do not say baaaaaaa.

So let's just call this whole subject a giant clusterfuck, because that's what it is, and you can all stop assuming that just because I happen to be a registered Republican and just because I happen to be a friend of Israel and I side with Bush on the War in Iraq, that does not disqualify me from thinking outside of the Bush party lines.

I mean, I love the Yankees yet I still hate Roger Clemens. Get it?

Now, if you'll excuse me I must go find out if there are any Web Meet-Ups for SocialistZionistBleedingHeartConservativeScumBucketAnarchistWarMongerer-

You may not say Baaaa, but you could say BAH.

SocialistZionistBleedingHeartConservativeScumBucketAnarchistWarMongerer-
MeatEaterLunchGiverSpawnofSatanBushBootLickerMarixstConspiracyTheorists Web meet-up is next month. I was just at it, and you'll never realize how many alluminum foil hat designs these people make. A fruit basket hat made out of foilf, Fruit baskets I tell ya!

Oh, no, this one won't generate any mail.

In a pig's eye it won't.

Now you see why I rushed to trademark Snarky Inanic™. You should have snagged up one of the good ones while there were still some left.

I think my new party name is going to be the Fuck You Party. We'll have common sense by the bucketload...and all those other good things listed previously in these comments, which I'm too tired to go look up just now. And we'll be saying "Fuck you" a lot, naturally.

Remember when we were kids and that favourite comeback to being called a name? "I know you are, but what am I?" Always asked with just the right touch of a sneer and a whine.

Okay, at least that was a favourite whan I was a kid, don't know about anyone else :)

You could always go with "I'm rubber, you're glue, bounce off me and shove it up your ass fuckwit."

Ahem. You were not supposed to talk about that whole brick hitting incident.

I'm confused.

Dang! You just missed our meeting of the SocialistZionistBleedingHeartConservativeScumBucketAnarchistWarMongerer-
MeatEaterLunchGiverSpawnofSatanBushBootLickerMarixstConspiracyTheorists.

We had toast.

Solonor you evil bastard! Toast at a meateaterlunch??? that's just wrong.

Bruce rules, though. :)

I actually don't think you're any of that. We do disagree, but hey... That's life.

I think anyone that sent that kind of shit to you really needs their head examined. It's debate. It's open. You can tell people to fuck off.

But for the love of Christ, don't make it personal.

Nah. You have a label: "That bitch we all love reading." Seems simple enough.

Christ! Just yesterday I got called a bleeding heart liberal for the first time. It was a first for me, however an experience that I think is far from over...

Michele, you are an original and that's why we luv ya.

Even if you were a socialist, only the most dead-headed, dead-hearted right winger could hate you for it.

I mean, did Melvyn Douglas have any chance of resisting Greta Garbo's socialist charms in Ninotchka? ;-)

Zionist Pig? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Oh, and by the way, you forgot LiberalComicLovingZionistThief. How could you forget that one?

"People who do that are not called Republicans or Democrats or Greens. They are called sheep."

I like the Good Professor's term: "idiotarian".

Personally, nothing makes me happier than having the moonbat left calling me a "fascist" at the same time the bonehead right is calling me a "communist". It warms the cockles of my heart, it does.

You're spot on, Michele. Don't let the bastards get to you.

Well you know you are doing something right if they feel angry enough to email you.

Faith: Toast is good for sopping up meat juices, and for putting meat on. Plus, you can put butter on toast, and butter is Almost Meat. (Ask any Vegan if you think otherwise!)

Well, I say if you have both Indymedia and the Far Right calling for your head on a pike, you must be doing something right.

Keep it up.

Ya, Arbiter, you can "get it" now" about the comment that you singled me out to retort to. You gave ME a label knowing NOTHING about who you responded to and what I am about. THAT is exactly why I left it vague to begin with. And then YOU proved my point by how you responded. I felt no need to list where and how I go above and beyond....and from whence I come and still won't, because I do it for the right reasons, not to prove it to ass holes like you. Yup, you chapped my ass but still gave my pointy head a good chuckle. You know nothing of me. Nothing, fool.
I'll join your FUCK YOU party, Arbitor, as long as you're the one getting fucked. Not EVERYONE is an asshole if they digress, some of us just do in princi-PLE while being busy making a difference. Words don't do a thing to change the world in the big scope of things, ACTIONS do.
SMOOTHCHIES back atcha, clown.
You. Know. NOTHING. Point your attacks specifically toward the message if your rounded head is able, not the messenger that you cannot even begin to corroberate ANYTHING to.
You are just as threatening as the rest who won't even listen to reasoning. Semantic-check. It goes both ways.

Michelle, sign me up. And I bet you could also sign up Roger Simon, Michael Totten, Meryl Yourish, Lynn B, Joe Katzman, Armed Liberal, Charles Johnson, and many others.

There are a lot of us liberal hawks out here, so don't mess with us!!!
