What Kind Of Country Do We Live In Where…

Do you like this story?

- Where Al Gore is a God for fighting global warming.

- Where George Bush is the Devil for fighting Islamofascism/terrorism.

Makes you think a little bit. Especially for me, living in LA where probably 90% of the population is liberal. I walk down the streets of Westwood (west L.A) everyday with people giving out fliers on the street trying to recruit people to join in their fight against global warming. It’s in my workplace, it’s in the local news, it’s in the papers. My only safe haven for normalcy these days is either speaking with those close to me who share my same ideals, immersing myself in the conservative blogosphere, or listening to talk radio (which sometimes keeps me in my car unnecessarily long while I listen to the last segment of some conservative talk show) that keeps me grounded.

Those things give me fuel to hold on to what I have learned to protect so dearly. To hold on to the ideals that make sense to me. To hold onto the Judaeo-Christian values that I have grown to defend against tyrannical/oppressive cultures.

Living in a liberal society can take it’s toll sometimes. It’s tough dancing around conversation after conversation not wanting to offend your friend or colleague, but at the same time wanting to express where you stand on issues going on all over the world and in our own country.

What do you guys think?

Do you experience liberalism in the workplace?

Do you have global warming shoved down your throat everyday?

What keeps YOU grounded?

    I dont experience this much since Im from WV, but my mother lives in Ventura and she complains about it to me all the time. Im sorry I couldnt stand to live out there all the non sense these people believe would drive me nuts. After all who will be left out there to worry about global warming in 50 years if terrorists have already leveled LA with a nuke.

    Just remember that these people are put on this earth for no other reason than your entertainment.

    It sounds harsh, but if you think about it, that’s the only possible conclusion.

    Thus, on that basis, it is a lot easier to take.

    I see it even in my family. We can’t have intelligent conversations anymore because they are so far in left field, and they think I’m a lunatic as well. We all just quietly decide we love each other anyway and joke about nothing.
    I go to conservative blogs, newssites, listen to classical music and read books. I teach at our parish and that helps.

    Yes, I’ve experienced it as well with certain family members or “would-be” family members and, Sista and I, really just don’t even go there. We will just avoid the conversation all together. Besides, they would be no match for a debate against us.

    I do find it interesting how a liberal family member can sit in a room with all conservative family members and openly mock anyone who watches Fox News. They know they are insulting everyone there, but they don’t care. In my experience, conservatives don’t do this.

    Just ask any of those liberal kool-aid addicts if they noticed how COLD this winter was on a global scale, and why Al Gore finally shut the f**k up about warming, and reinvented his drivel, naming it climate change. Or tell them you are too busy to join because you have to get home to turn all your air conditioners on full blast and then drive around in your SUV spewing tons of CO2 :D

    No liberal problems for me except on line. I live in and work in an area where people don't seem to give a crap about much but their cell phones. Bring up Islam and they think you're talking about a new phone company. They sure don't care much about Global Warming either, I doubt they would even know who Al Gore is.
    I'll never for the life of me understand how anyone can make a war on terror out to be a bad thing…
