The Lone Ranger
Sorry. I am a hopelessly independent minded Patriotic Constitutionalist Christian Conservative Republican partisan and the t(h)reat of death will not change that. (To be forever open minded is admitting you can not come to conclusions on anything and stick with them. In other words no moral compass.)
What brought me up short was not that The Lone Ranger is God fearin Bible thumper of the first water. I have run into them before. What caught my eye was his definition of what being open minded is. I struggled to find a respectful reply that showed just enough disrespect so it was obvious I thought the guy was full of BS.
I ask now if my answer will fit the bill. Too much? Not enough of too much? Or just right?
My Answer to The Lone Ranger
How should I interpret this? Should I look at it as an open minded reader or use my moral compass and conclude that since you feel hopelessly independent, you really are not the happy go lucky guy all your posts indicate you are and never will be because you have reached a conclusion on this issue? Or should I just ask you if all that starch itches? ............Nah. I'll keep my open mind and you keep yours closed so that moral compass continues pointing you hopelessly in the only direction that makes sense for you. Whatever it takes to get you through the day.........Oops, sorry. Didn't mean to get all open minded on you. My moral compass must be acting up.
I checked the Lone ranger's bio page and looked through his answers to a bunch of other questions this site asks. Turns out Ranger Man is a complicated fellow/woman, uh whatever. He's rock solid for the right wing agenda, but leans some in the libertarian direction when the issue is not clearly laid out in his Mormon version of the Bible. He does not come off as a lunatic, but his inflexible mindset indicates he might be one. He does not rise to trolling so I am assuming he has had some experience at the forum game.
A worthy adversary? No. I decided he is just another person who is wrong on the Internet. I am sure he would be proud though that I finally found my moral compass and came to a conclusion.
