Our relationship was serious enough that we talked about raising kids and all that. What stuck with me about our conversation was our conversation on public schools.
Her "I wouldn't want to send our kids to private schools, I'm a supporter of public schools."
Me "Really, you mean you'd send your kids to CPS?"
Her "No, I'd probably move to Lakota or Sycamore schools."
So even though she was fabulously liberal she wanted no part of the school systems she and her liberal pals managed to turn into large piles of digested White Castles.
But she had absolutely no problem seeking refuge for her kids in Redville where conservatives make sure their public schools keep their kids one step ahead of illiteracy.
I tell that story as a pretext of a liberal relative who was giving me a bunch of crap for all the guns I own.
You know, I'd have a lot more respect for a liberal if they put one of these signs on all of the entrances to their home.
But they won't. Why? See criminals can't really tell if the owner of that home is a red neck, gun toting NRA member or a passive wimp just from the look of their home. (although the Obama sticker on a Prius in the driveway should give some criminal a clue).
As a result, liberals make out from having conservative, gun toting, god fearing neighbors.
What about free speech? You know liberals love to utilize their free speech rights but do next to nothing to ensure their protection. They benefit from all those largely republican military men and women who do all the fighting for them.
And think about all those Islamic terrorists who love bringing down buildings in this country. Did you ever notice they weren't out to bring down a shopping mall in Dublin, Ohio. They look to take out American decadence in our largely blue cities.
If they were to impose Sharia law around the world who do your think they'd look to stone first?
- the GLBT team
- media members
- NOW members
Of course, you could also mention the largely democratic welfare deadbeats who suck the tit of hard working conservative types.
So I'd like to proclaim July 10th Buy a conservative a beer day. It seems to be the least you could do for all the ass carrying we do for you guys. Because one day, John Galt's going to start getting a little tired of listening to your crap while he's pulling your rickshaw. It's closer than you think.
