I Guess I’m Left of Center ?

What is the last thing you do when you post here……. that is, before you click  Publish ?  Do you already have something on your mind?   Do you have a title and topic ready, and you go from there, and stick with it?

The last thing I do before I click Publish is to write  the title of  my post. …. which is troublesome because I come here with no specific topic  in mind.  I write down whatever is  on my mind at the moment, and just hope I can manage to tie this hodgepodge  together into one coherent  thought….. and I fail.  I guess that is the way I am, and I accept it already.  I figure my long time readers have accepted it as well.  * looks at Ate San and  Andy *

Oh, in fact, I don’t even know who I am and what I really stand for.  Like, sure, I am a card – bearing  Democrat. The question is, what kind of a Democrat   am I ? Am I a  liberal or a centrist Dem ?  Some “tests” that I had taken, one of which was the Pew Research Centre’s , had  categorized me as a  Solid Liberal . In fact, I’m on the Far Left.

overall-party

I’m between VERY LIBERAL and LIBERAL DEMOCRAT, according to Pew.

Another poll , though, has given me a score of 5.2 /10 Liberal on social issues, and just 3.8/10 Liberal  on foreign policy, and a mere 2.8 on cultural issues.  Overall  category= a  LEFT SOCIAL MODERATE,  and a  Moderate  Pacifist  vs. Anti-war activist.

There  was  another poll given by Time Magazine that  made me LOL.  It was based on the person’s personality,  and likes and dislikes.  According to the  Time’s poll, I’m 66 % CONSERVATIVE  because………

1. I like dogs more than cats.  Dogs , they say, symbolize obedience and loyalty.  Well, I like dogs because  a) they are loyal  b)  give us unconditional love  c ) their poop doesn’t smell as much as a cat’s

2.  I like a neat and organized desk.  LOL   This is a joke, right ?  Do an absent minded professor, a nerdling,  academic intellectuals , a  scruffy scientist , a disheveled  tree hugger and a hippie  with dirty and unorganized desks scream liberal ?

3. I am an Internet Explorer user.   lol   I’d like to add that my homepage is still AOL. ( America On Line , ha ha )  I wonder, what browser do liberals use ?

4. I don’t think  my * future * husband or BF should be looking at pornography.  Huh ?  That makes me Conservative ? Does it mean, liberal women allow their partners to look at porn ?  I don’t think so.  I think liberal women would be the last ones to tolerate this.  Libs are not Stepford Wives  who will just go  in one corner and cry to preserve their ” family”..  These porn lovers’ faces would meet these women libs’ fists in no time. I know my fist would.  I know karate…… I’m kidding , of course. I won’t resort to violence.  There is a reason why Democrats are also called  :” bleeding heart liberals.” Too soft, they say.
On the other hand, Time also says I’m 34 % Liberal.   According to Time poll,  I’m a  bit Liberal because ………

1.  I prefer to watch documentaries over action/ sitcoms TV shows.   That’s true ! ! !  But, is that a liberal thing ?

If I want action, I watch the Military Channel. I think I’m already an expert on WW2 history.  And , oh, what a treat……. There’s COSMOS on National Geographic Channel. It’s a remake of Carl Sagan’s 1980  Cosmos series. And you can believe this or not, but I haven’t watched any TV sitcoms for years ! Not. a. single. one. Do you believe me ?  Well, I just bought the 3rd season dvd of Walking Dead.  I don’t even know on what channel  it’s showing and at what time.  I’m trying to catch up. I really am.

* ponders*

I did manage to watch The Oscars, from beginning to end.  Sorry, my mind is  starting to wander  again……..

Back to topic……

2. I’d rather go to New York’s Metropolitan Art Museum than to Times Square. And  I’d rather go to archaelogical diggings than go partying.

* shakes head *

I need to publish this now  before I get depressed . I mean, I would rather go to archaelogical diggings  than party ? What’s up with that ?

Tomorrow, I’m going to resign  from my school clubs….. Go Home Club and Knitting/Embroidery Club.
