I Blame Buck



Actually it's more like the Cap'n's fault. He started it. Then I saw that Buck had taken the quiz as well and posted the results. So, as my Mother always said (when we were lads), "Monkey see, monkey do." (And my Dad one day completed the thought with "...monkey get his a$$ slapped too!" My brothers and I laughed. Mom did not. Nor did Dad when he saw the look on Mom's face.)

So, the quiz. It was interesting. I played with it a bit and felt the results were accurate for my own political leanings, such as they are. Many of my colleagues are libertarians. I used to think I was too. Then I did the research and realized that I was not a libertarian.

So there it is. I'm a self-confessed Centrist.


If you go to the Wikipedia article on Centrism, there's a picture of Ross Perot.

I can live with that.

      Adulation is a strange thing; you always need MORE. ;-)

    4. Ah, a fellow adulation addict I see. While it's not exactly why I blog, it doesn't hurt. ;-)

  3. I was actually surprised I wasn't 100/100 in the Libertarian space. But, Hey! 90/100 is close enough for (small) gub'mint work.

    And we thanks ya for the adulation. :-)

    1. At first I answered with my heart, went straight to the top. Then I answered more with my brain. The latter, I felt, was more accurate.

  4. I was slightly to the left and a little above Buck.
    But then I know how to game the quiz so it isn't quite fair.

    1. Ah yes, a fellow "player" of the quiz game.

      I too made it sing. But then I answered how I thought the world should be. Centrist it is, centrist it shall be.

  5. I blame Buck! I was kind of in the middle. The very highest one can reach... I always say, "aim higher." :)

    1. I thought as much. Hence I Blame Buck and not I Blame the Cap'n for the title.

      You hinted at it, Buck laid it out there. That's we senior enlisted types for you, non-subtle at times.

  6. Late to the party, but I was two intersections directly above you, Sarge.

    1. Ah yes, Libertarian. But just barely. A good place to be.

  7. "Libertarian" here: 80% Personal, 100% Economic. No surprise, really.

    1. No surprise at all Rev! We just had a couple of inches of snow last night. Kinda looks like Alaska in September. ;-)

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
