    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)

    Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.

    Can't get any simpler than that.

    The last four letters in American..........I Can
    The last four letters in Republican........I Can
    The last four letters in Democrats.........Rats

    End of lesson. test to follow in November, 2012

    Remember, November is to be set aside as rodent extermination month.

    In before the lock!
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    The right and left came from the Congressional Chamber at the US Capital. The conservatives sit on the right of the speaker of the house, the liberals on the left. This also refers to reaching accross the aisle.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    Although I do agree with this post, it will degenerate when those of a certain mindset take offense, and they will take offense.

    Therefore, I am going to do the "right" thing and close it.
