Nice. I would counter that it's between the pricks and the not-pricks and the not-pricks outnumber the pricks 100:1 but they don't know how to deal with the pricks without ... well being pricks.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Just looking for a cultural reference Smile

I'm finding I'm much closer to the Rob Reiner Meathead character everyday dealing with the Archies...

Meathead was the term archie ignorantly used to describe his son-in-law.

Yet everything the meathead said came to pass.
Racism
Womens Rights
Damaging the Environment
Corporate Greed
etc..

Ohh, but the Archie Bunkers still arent interested in facts...thats right.

I guess the term meathead means he has meat in his head, aka a brain, rather than the empty space inside the Archie Bunker heads.
And we all know the Archies are very much Anti-brains.

RE: America Divided
All in the Family was a good show, precisely because, while caricaturing the division between conservative, backward-looking values and liberal progressive ones, it didn't paint either one as the only true faith... remember, Edith had her say, and so did minority characters. That demarcation has since been brought into political life and simplified and simplified again, until a caricature became a farce.

If the division of America were really just between those two well-defined factions, it would be easy to resolve.
And he's wrong - deadly wrong! - about one more thing: the left has not only come toward the middle; it's bent over and allowed itself to be....er... spanked, while the right has entrenched more and farther in anti-citizen ideology.
In the real middle, there are four or five interest groups that no longer have any voice at all.

If you pray to anything, you're prey to anything.

Girly keeps finding himself closer and closer to the Jean Stapleton Edith character. Blush
