Getting Through : Lighten Up

Differentiating--and Mixing It Up.

A few ideas.

Me thinks somebody had a good idea a while back—can’t recall who—and I’ll tell you about it in a minute.

But first, let me preface this little “activity” by saying this: I think we should make it abundantly clear FROM NOW ON who we are talking about when we refer to the Family. We can’t just say “they” because that’s what “they’re” doing. We should officially divide “them” in two—at least.

A friend of mine suggested “WS” is who we’re really fighting against, and the responsible parties have either been part of that engine at one time, are part of it now, or practiced the ideology that WS endorsed. Hence “WS” seems to work for that.

Then there are your average folk: “The Family”, who have the wool pulled over their eyes, are tithing all they’re worth, and actually doing some missionary work.

I believe making this clarification will help The Family to see that we are not trying to incite a general persecution or get their kids taken away. Some of us would lay down our lives before we see that happen again. It will help them to see that our cries for justice are focused on certain individuals in the “WS” bracket.

Does this make sense? What say we try it? Ok, so my little “activity” as I called it earlier goes something like this:

All this name calling the Family is doing is getting dismally repetitive, and I’m just tired of hearing the same stupid words over and over again. So unimaginative. They did good with Vandari. Now there’s a name we could celebrate!

It was angering at first. Now it’s just mind numbing and I swear I’ll wig out if I read another “vitriolic” (whatever that means), “apostate”, or the newest one “weird group” --any of you kettles see a pot anywhere?

I say we start a list of the words they’ve been slamming us with, and add a twist to each one. Whatever you think of, whether it’s a joke, a sarcastic comment, a piece of art or a bumper sticker. WHATEVER. Let’s just burst some bubbles and put some faces on those nasty names.

They have a right to do the same back at us. In fact, IT’S ON!

I’m starting with "VITRIOLIC". Sounds like something you take for heartburn actually. Or maybe a powerful drain cleaner. Like Drano. Either way it’s something you use to CLEAN OUT THE CRUD. Obviously I don’t care what it actually means. And if it means poisonous, then hell yeah—like a snake that has been teased and stepped on one time too many, we’re getting VITRIOLIC on their collective ass! Hmm, I’m mildly amused. The more I say it, the more I like it.

Bin Laden Asks Zarqawi to Make U.S. a Target -Source
B y David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden recently asked his chief ally in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, to consider the territory of the United States as a target for terrorist attacks, a U.S. counterterrorism official said on Monday [...] Zarqawi in particular was trying to establish a safe haven in Iraq from which to operate against Western nations and "apostate" Muslim governments.

Differentiating...I hate that word. Brings back horrible calculus memories!

Vitriolic...I like that word. Wonder how many thesauri the uneducated simpletons had to search through to come up with that one!

Vitriolic: Bitterly scathing; caustic: vitriolic criticism.
