[Chat] ...Cracked Pot?...

Let me butt in, ...please?, ...yes of course he (Kopel) is a cracked-pot,
...because we are all also cracked-pots, ...except that we don't notice our
own cracks, ...and do notice everyone else's cracks, ...we decide first based
on "truths" (sic) [I learned this (sic) thing from "Whiplash"] in the media
that are favorites, ...that validate our screwy ideas, ...then consume from
only that diet, ...and then know "everything", ...and then feel obligated to
"inform" others and "bring them up to date" with everything we "know"!
After all don't we all individually know what's really best in every regard?
I'm really quite tired of everyone trying to "sell" political ideas on our
discussion list. Why don't you tell a real person you know about how smart
you are instead of trying to convince a bunch of more or less anonymous
"cracked-pots" with no faces on the discussion list? It's kind of like
raising hell with the rear view mirror in the car on the way to work in the
morning instead of raising hell with the boss in person!
I really don't care to hear your screwy ideas, ...I have enough of my own
already to figure out! Leave me alone!
Would anyone really take voting suggestions from any of the "cracked-pots" on
our discussion list? Isn't everyone we have heard from on the discussion a
little weird in some respect (from our own perspective that is)?
Of course they are, ...and occasionally I'm even willing to realize that I'm
weird also! They're my own cracks!
