Got myself caught up in a stupid argument with a troglodyte posting a meme about how Liberals are anti-American, anti-everything. Stupid, but I had to say SOMETHING!…Here’s as far as I got before I realized how stupid I was to even respond….
Julie Anderson Horn #1. The “Democrat” Party is an expression first used by terrorist Joe McCarthy back in the 1950’s to condescend to those who didn’t agree with his war on free speech or any other form of expression. Yeah, THAT Joe McCarthy….Julie Anderson Horn #2. Liberals are “anti-freedom”? You are delusional. It is the Republican Corporatists who are privatizing the prison system and fighting the courts for their “War on Crime” agenda….except, of course, if you are white and carrying a gun….Like · 38 minsJulie Anderson Horn #3. Anti-Catholic? I’m Catholic.Like · 37 minsJulie Anderson Horn #4. Anti-family? We are the ones who are PROMOTING the acceptance of ALL families, dumbass….who want to support working families by raising the minimum wage, by assisting with child care, by providing health insurance as a RIGHT rather than a privilege so that people can keep their homes and families intact if one of them falls ill with a terrible disease. WE are the ones adopting and fostering the kids that are born sick or unwanted or devastatingly poor because YOU don’t believe in supporting health care, family planning, assistance to families with children, food stamps, minimum wage that provides a means to live, Head Start programs for working mothers and fathers with young children, food lunch programs, restrictions on gun laws so that family members don’t kill each other in momentary acts of rage, stupidity, or availability. We LIBERALS are anti-family? Fuck you.Julie Anderson Horn #4. Anti-business? Anti-Free Enterprise?That is such a joke. When liberals talk about Corporatists and Big Banks…what we are fighting FOR is the ability for the little guys…guys like me, probably like you….to be able to WORK an support their FAMILIES in healthy environments and without fear of losing jobs if they don’t agree with the boss. But mostly its about stopping the corporations that already exist that make it impossible for any small business to survive! Small grocery stores are eaten up by multinational chain stores every day….as are local hardware stores, radio stations, movie theaters, restaurants, auto repair shops, and especially local banks. Go ahead…try to open a little savings and loan or fix-it shop and see how far you get. You think you are going to join your pals the Waltons or the Kochs or the other multibillionaires if you go out and start your own “free” enterprise? Go ahead. Let me know how that works out for you. In the meantime, I realize that if you are actually someone who believes in the bullshit you’ve posted here, I am wasting my time arguing with someone who is obviously willfully ignorant of what is really going on in the world, and I’m removing myself from this “discussion”. Maybe you should remove yourself from your paved (by government) roads, deal with your own (government) removal of trash every week, turn on your hose when your house catches on fire so the (governmental fire department) doesn’t have to impinge on your “freedom”, enjoy your 25% or 50% interest rate on your home loan or your credit card from the (unregulated) banks, drink your filthy water and breathe your filthy air that are going to make you, your parents, children, friends and neighbors sick because the (unregulated) industries and manufacturers have decided to use our rivers and streams as their personal industrial sized toilets. Go ahead and wave your second amendment protected weapons around your neighborhood where every other asshole with a second amendment protected weapon is waving his around and try to figure out which ones are the “good” guys with guns and which are the “bad” ones, because no one will know, because according to you, EVERYONE has a right to carry and fire a weapon any time anywhere, as long as you feel “threatened” . As far as I’m concerned, the bad guy is YOU.
