You seem to have a fear, or a disdain for the bourgeois, applying the stereotype that because one works for a living they are uneducated inebriates. I find it honorable that one earns their keep rather than sponging off the industriousness of others and the spoiled aristocracy. You can find many in academia that hold conservative viewpoints, and the legacy Bush family is just one example that not all conservatives are working-class.
Also simply because one takes a different viewpoint than yourself does not mean they are unintelligent or beneath you. It simply means they disagree. To answer to the flag waving, if you refer to pride in my country of origin, then I am guilty as charged. With some study you will find this country has many worthwhile and noble accomplishments that neither political party can claim. That is not flag waving, that is fact. If I were to say America is great because of X political party then that would be flag waving for a political party which I will not do. We are not perfect to be sure, but there is no country that is. I know this from living abroad, and I am glad to have returned home.
I will discuss politics no more in this room, if the rest agree to do the same. I yield to the arguement by the anonymous gentleman or lady below that this clubhouse is not the proper forum for political discussion. That should be saved for the political forums out on the internet, and apologize for having even mentioned them here.

Back to the purpose of this clubhouse. -
I know the phrase "flat out like a lizzard drinking" comes from Australia and it means to move very fast, but how does a lizzard's drinking habbits translate to running very fast? Do lizzards drink really fast in Australia?
