A study came out a few days ago proving that there is an actual brain composition difference between the conservative and the liberal brains. Considering that I am dumbfounded by how liberals can actually think the way that they do, I am inclined to believe it.
I came across a quote some time ago and it sums up the way I’ve experienced the liberal arguments. If you know who to attribute this quote to please leave me a comment so that I can give him/her proper credit.
Arguing with liberals is like playing chess with a pigeon. It doesn’t matter how good you are at chess, the pigeon is just going to knock over all the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around the table looking victorious.
Doesn’t that sound a whole lot like the “arguments” you’ve had with the Progressives in your life?
He asked her “ … is there any reason why a civilian would need a magazine clip, uh, magazine drums as it is now, of a 10 round limit or more?” Her reply was that she had just read a story today in which a man was attacked by a “gang of men” with bats and tire irons. His response? “What’s the point of that, of that anecdote?” Uhm …Piers, do you not recall the question you JUST asked her, to which she is now replying?? Hello?? Then he goes on to say “But Dana, Dana, why do you tell that story?”
Then he says that he’s watched the video of the attack, that the victim was attacked with “a bar of some sort” (remember, it’s a tire iron!!), and says “ … but he’s alive, he didn’t get killed.” He asks her if her “suggestion” is that “someone should’ve pulled a gun out and shot somebody.” Well, apparently he’d rather be beaten with bats and tire irons, but I will tell you right now, if I’m attacked in the middle of the street by a gang of men wielding weapons of any type, I’m not going to think twice – damn straight I’d shoot!
The simple FACT is that tightened gun control has not lessened crime in any state that has tightened them. Another simple FACT is that a criminal, or a mentally deranged person, is not going to give a damn about the law. The only people who are going to care are your law-abiding citizens, who will then be without protection (oh, wait, we could use our whistle!!) when the lawless attack us.
I seriously don’t understand how the left brain works. I go to the left blog comments and it’s full of hate and vitriolic diatribe aimed at the hateful, government hating, intolerable, racist right. I read the right blog comments and, though there are jerks in every group, the vitriol is aimed more at this (P)residents Administration and the progressives as a whole than toward any one citizen with a view.
I spend a lot of time on Twitter. I am a Right Wing, Tea Party member, gun-toting, Bible believing, Constitutional Conservative Texan. Too many of the “conversations” that I’ve had with liberals on Twitter go something like this:
Her “OMG, RACIST!!” remark came on the heels of me saying there were numerous links on Google stating that Vonderrit Myers Jr did, in fact, have a gun. Because I believed the preponderance of evidence, I was a racist.
Most of the hate-filled, mean, filthy stuff said on progressive/liberal forums is directed at any one who doesn’t see things their way. Who’s the intolerable one again?
Believe it or not, we’re all entitled to our opinions. We’re even entitled to voice those opinions. You don’t have to agree with anything I say, but you do not have the right to stop me from saying it. It works the other way too! I don’t have to like what you say, but that doesn’t give me the right to try and stop you from voicing your opinion. The 1st Amendment really is a wonderful thing.
Stop with the red herrings and the name calling already. Act like civilized, mature adults. I can absolutely guarantee that you aren’t going to get me to even listen to your point of view if you can’t stick to the facts. Start with the leftist ploys of distract and attack and the “argument” is over. You lose.
