Original thought:

What is the opposite of Nazi Socialism?

American Republicanism!


Now, take a strip of letter paper an inch wide and write the two opposing political terms on opposite sides of the strip, and lengthwise, if you like.

Join the ends of the strip together with tape or glue.

But, OH, before joining, give the paper a half-twist, to better represent the actual mental perspective of Today's New Republican.

Now trace finger or pencil from the R word, all along the length of the strip until you reach freedom.

A parable from netsky, for the extremists who call us dems not-Americans. A charm in that strip, revealing what they would lead us unto if we fail to win this fight.

No longer the plain parlor trick, this Moebius strip with a political twist mirrors our likely future as a nation.

Cousin Drew Pearson, are you smiling on me?

Ah, i don't beleive in god or ghosts. But i do believe in this fairy for sure!

Having just now made my first Moebius Republican Strip, advise you write the two names

-banner style
-opposite sides, of course!
-inverted in regards to each other

that is, write "Today's Republicanism" on the strip
FLIP the strip over and write "Nazi Socialism"

it reads better this way. Make the strip from longer paper for even better effect. Give the strip to your victim with wry wink. Ask victim to trace fingertip along the length of the strip!

Molto FUN!!!!!

and yeah, you copy-cat republicans, who never have new, sharp idea of your own... you may appropriate my parlor trick for your own political ends.

But, fact is, this DEMOCRAT invented the gag and all you can do is as you do do do--- copy and paste the work of others.

Oh how my moods shift from nice to naughty in this SE environment.

Now, to make a love tool of the Moebius strip, write YOUR name on the one side. And your MATE'S name on the other side.

Show the strip to your life-love. Ask him or her to apprecaite that this flat paper strip demonstrates the parallel but un-met earlier you's.

Ask mate to show how you two may be joined, forever meeting again and again in your daily loops.

Mate will be puzzled. For if she/he joins the strip in a plain loop, your pairing is never to be acheived.

Amaze your mate by clipping the loop asunder, give it any -odd- number of twists, and rejoin.

Part of the charm of this trick is -don't- tell your mate about the odd number part.

When she/he attempts to re-make the strip so you two "meet" forever in the circuit, the chance is fifty-fifty the attempt will fail.

A lonng strip is most valuable if you go for multiple half-turns. This is easy enough to make with shorter strips taped or pasted to requisite length.

Could be a good tool to help the bedroom activity if the presenter avoids, uh, kinks.

grins to all and

And if the desired result is not achieved, you can touch a lit candle at the bottom and watch. Extract the profound message of your choice. Sorry, could not resist and do not wish to offend. Regards Happy

and what a gift to SE to bring out a -reserved- poster.

Funny comments appreciated.

Hard pounces? Short insults? Always answered in kind if i sense some bully at work.

Having fenced down some bullies of late I still offer them my hand. Uh, that's too personal considering... so I offer them their choice of olive branch or baseball bat, depending on how they treat -less adept street fighters- than this pro boxer returned from semi-retirement.

cheers and better nights in bed to all

It's one thing to disagree with policies, but a blatant and pointless attack based on fearmongering is well, uncool.

Off to the corner with you...put the pointy hat on and face the wall until after Election Day.

But my little wickedness is more tongue-in-cheek than my neighbor's mongering posts by edh, mack, et al and a dozen more.

Yep, they set a MONO tone of dis-temper.

Me? I alternate cold, hot and loving you all for YOUR foolish foibles, even more than mine own.

All on display in the posting record...

grin and bear it- but hey, your're a funny one like me, too... said in the normal sense of the word, lol.

Why not?

Note that man is either soldered to an animal or human Wink

Distinguish between them from the quality of their genes and not their jeans. *Guess* me right or wrong Kevin Klein...

I really prefer the boots without the spurs. Wink

But, let me ask you this?

Will you kiss or kick me behind my front if by the last minute I was coerced to draw a check mark for bootlegged Bush?

But even -i- cannot alwasys understand your prose.

you are so damn cute, tho!

about those english lessons? when may we start?

a big hug and if I can figger your love words out I'll polish up a better reply.

If you mean- would I love you even if you could vote, and were -forced- to vote for a Reichschancellor? yes, i'd still love you. because love is unconditional and should be running through ALL of our veins, even for our opponents.

For tomorrow they may die. Or maybe me first- and then all are the poorer off no matter who dies.

My beloved, netsky,

My prose and love has equal meanings hidden from those incapable of these two words.

Knowing you and you knowing me in a level publicly called, "deductive reasonings" is a match in the ring that will offers the diverse crowd an appetite to think if at all this methodology is applied.

I appreciated your last response. Somehow, I expected that. See how much I'm getting to know thee. Wink

it amazes me how certain people always manage to use the words 'hate' and 'attack' in their posts....

Evie was right, you two should take it to a private chat room on yahoo and 'do your thing', let it all out, go with the flow, whatever rocks your boat...
