Hi. I'm new here. Been hanging out on the Michael Moore boards for almost a year but have been seeking a new cyber hangout with a political bent. (Keep an eye on the feminism forum. ) It'll be nice to have a place to discuss issues without having rabid Americans "Blame Canada" for being socialist tree huggers. LOL.
Nice to meet you all.

Nice to meet you too, disobedient! Say, did a former babbler on the MM boards steer you here?

No, actually I was looking at indymedia and one of the comments was quoted from an article here so I thought I'd come see what it was all about.

Oh goodie! It's my first day here and I already have my very own cyberstalker! Usually that takes me *weeks* to accomplish.

Hi, disobedient. Nonesuch 'volunteered' to be only your 'big sister'. I will be your 'BIG BROTHER' (many accused me here of tyrannical tendencies), so beware!!!

Disobedients need WATCHING!

I was a raging 'laissez faire' Capitalist. Now I am a raging 'Commpitalist'. Let that be a warning to you and all innocents who wander into our midst.

Hello scrabble.

Zatamon, did you think I was pro-capitalism? Hahahaha. Oh god, does that mean that if I stay here, I'll end up an SUV driving CEO? Or, even worse, doing that in Alberta??

Haha. Just kidding. I lived in Calgary for a year and they didn't lynch me. They didn't *talk* to me either, but I was okay with that.

No disobedient, I knew nothing about your political views. I just wanted to hint at strange and spooky things that might happen to you here. But I am also just kidding. Babble is a great place and the more the merrier. Welcome and have fun.

Thanks Zatamon.

I was no Spring Chicken, myself. But then, there is, and could ever be, only one Spring Chicken.

Big talk. Y'all wanna know her secret? Bring along the right books, and she'll be the merest putty in your hands.

Which books, you may ask? Ah, you see there you'll have to retain my expert opinion.

You did, and again I wonder if your darling RFL hasn't been involved in too many arbitrations lately.

Pre-babble times? You mean that babble has not always existed?

Babble has ALWAYS been at war with... um, I'll get back to you RIGHT after these folk from the Ministry of Truth set me straight.

It's one of those time-warps again, is it? We must have inadvertantly entered a time/space anomaly, where we meet the descendants of our previous selves and have to decide whether to save ourselves and thus make them never have existed, or....
