    Due to years of education in seeing both (or more) sides of things, I am firmly committed to seeing both (or more) sides of things. I built a special padded fence to sit on, so I can be as comfortable as possible during fence sitting.

    Multiplicity is not specificity, so that's good! Not sure about multifaceted, though. It might depend on the facet angles.

    While my views lean towards the recumbent, I have discovered that this has helped immensely in being less specific. Zzzzzzzzzz

    Sharp angles are specific. And dangerous - you could put someone's eye out.

    and then GAB will show up with some ideology and THAT would be really painful.

    My computer keeps eating my words, and someone stole the rest. So I really don't know.

    I'm in kind of a hurry now-about to step into the transporter to be beamed up to the HARP site outside of Gakona, AK.
    Will report when I return. I promise I will be vague, non-multi-faceted, obtuse, and abstract.
    And just as a warning, my coffee tasted kinda funny this mornin'. Oh, look, I'm a poet.

    This begs for the introduction of some vague religiousity - I suggest the Church of the Subgenius - Hail Bob! - where we can all pursue the higher Slack.

    I'll become political (vague or otherwise) when I can see Russia from my back door....

    Hey, when I went on a ranch vacation as a kid I got off the horse and put a foot through the barb wire fence into Mexico - does that mean I'm qualified to run for office?

    Have you had any affairs? You need at least one affair.

    I don't have words for what I believe. Can I just obfuscate?

    Make sure you leave some incriminating voice mail messages or take a video that can resurface at some point in your political campaign. Oh, and a love child can be good too, but that's usually later in your political career.

    I don't want any more children and the video would just scare everyone. Besides I'm not handy with a camera and it would be inappropriate to ask one of my teenage daughters to set it up for me. So, I guess I'll have to stick to voicemails.

    Oh, I can text. Will innuendo filled texts do?
