    Origin of Left & Right

    I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left."
    By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
    but the heart of the fool to the left."
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)

    "A wise man's heart is at his right hand;
    but a fool's heart at his left"
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (KJV)

    Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.






    Can't get any simpler than that.

    Amen before someone ruins this thought

  4. The equivalent of "Republican" is "Democrat", not "Democrats". Don't use singular for one and plural for the other.

    Either "Crat" for Democrat, or "Cans" for Republicans.

    Jeez, full of hate today are we? What happened to freedom of opinion? Or is it only free for those whose opinion matches yours?

    Ed: Lighten up old son. Where is your sense of humor? If I really wanted to dis the Democrats, I would have used something else. Freedom of opinion is alive and well and will remain so. After all, you are expressing your opinion here, aren't you? Or does that only apply if you happen to express your opinion first? The thread was one of the many emails I receive and pass along. I know, being a Democrat, you were probably offended but you will get over it. The Republicans and Tea Party members can be lambasted but it seems to bring out hostility if one jokes about the Democrats. I'm really sorry you are lacking in humor. That seems to be a Democratic trait these days. Asi' es la vida!

  7. Ahem, sorry. Was reading too many wooddoctor posts recently. Mental state lightened. I forgot that most of your anti-left posts are in the form of jokes, not serious hate-filled diatribes, when reading this the first time.

    Amen afterward now, also!

    By a vast majority, the elite "left" are Democrat's. By a vast majority, the elite 'right' are Repub's. By a vast majority, the anti-gun laws and other Bill of Rights shredding legislation along with tax-n-spend economy busting is provided by the left.

    Gee! And all this time I thought it had something to do with where everyone sat in the House Of Reps and Senate.

    Just remember, if the opposite of pro is con then the opposite of progress is... Congress.
