And now for something completely different.
Well, when I read one of these, I immediately laughed, and posted it on facebook. After a few replies, I dug a little further. While I probably do fit in the category of the one I identified with, I also read about some other ones, and it maybe gave me a little insight into my own idea about other people I know and like, and maybe how they see things differently. Not a bad thing, just a different way of looking at things. Understanding that “hey, maybe I’m a little like this personality type and that’s why I don’t know how to interact well with this other type.” Which, as yet another article I came across points out, is sort of a fixed mindset way of looking at things. Maybe our personalities are a little more fluid, but it’s all interesting to me, to explore these things.
And, here’s something for any left-wingers to read, to confirm their bias and get in an uproar about.
Here’s one of the many lawsuits they filed, that the group apparently won.
Okay, that last one didn’t sound so bad, right? Let’s move on to Rural Cleansing.
Ten years ago people would have laughed if you told them their government would withhold water from over 1000 farmers and ranchers to protect an endangered fish, placing the livelihood of those people at risk.
Let’s face it. If you’re paying a sign guy to put up a sign in front of your business, and the city is planning to put up trees that will block the view to your sign, well, how much are you payin’ your sign guy, anyway? It’s probably too much.
The other evening, I attended a city council meeting that included a vote on an upcoming development project that has probably been pretty much a foregone conclusion for awhile, now. I’m not one to judge on what I think about the project; the people that live in the city have money to spend, and I’m just one of the people who are trying to make a living from their good graces. But one thing out of the meeting that kind of made me smile, is there was one guy who cast a dissenting vote, in spite of the obvious forging ahead feeling of the whole affair. I had sort of kept an informal tally of the citizens’ comments during the public comment portion of the meeting, and the tally was pretty much even for and against. I just admired that there was one guy willing to put his face to a vote that was probably unpopular to those with the decision making power.
