    I am in shock!! I am posting this here, because I'm hoping she doesn't come into this forum much since she doesn't much care about politics, will see if she does. I'm sure I'll hear about it.

    ok here's the scoop, I have tried to call her since the night of nov. 2nd, she didn't answer her phone, I left her a message to call me when she got in. I wanted to know if she had voted or not? She never called. I called again on Wed. still no answer, left a message. I finally get thru to her today, come to find out she was advoiding me, she didn't want me to gloat she said. I said I wasn't calling to gloat, then she says she doesn't want to discuss it, then goes on about how nobody's going to have jobs and social security is going to be screwed up and on and on but she doesn't want to discuss it.

    So basically bottom line is she's mad at me, and advoiding me because Bush won.

    I can not get thru to her I have tried to explain how everything works but she is to caught up in the liberal media to listen to anything I say.


    Oh and no bashing Mom she is a registered user on here (angelblue)


    Oh and I think she's buying into the whole conspiracy theory too!

    Well funny you should post that. I have a good friend who is VERY liberal, I mean we are talking "Michael Moore liberal" (I know, I know....we go waaaay back to when I was a young liberal..I grew up..She didn't..hehe).
    Any way she won't speak to me or answer my emails since Bush won. I sent her a nice ecard telling her I was thinking about her and that the race was close and could have gone either way, etc.etc. I was not gloating or condescending to her. I truly do feel bad for her that she is miserable, because she is a friend first before political foe.
    But nothin' doing...I'm in shock, actually....She's 47 years old...let's just move forward with life! Sheez! :bang3:

    My dad and I got into a fight over Bush the other day. For some reason, he hates Bush. I tried to ask him what he thought was so great about Kerry and he gave me some line of BS about "a new idea" or something like that. I asked him if he supported gay marriage (he thinks it's crazy), abortion (he thinks it's a horrible thing), a tax increase (he thinks that the government takes too much of his money in taxes). I asked him if realized that the Democratic Party did not share a single one of his values...he had no answer. It all boils down to Iraq and his perception that Bush is stupid and Cheney is sneaky. Anyway, he said that I was crazy for voting for Bush and started walking out of the room (I think he realized that he was outgunned) and I found myself shouting "Bush is going to win, so you better get used to the idea!!!!!"...I guess I was right! :)

    Well...it wasn't all that bad. Five minutes later, we were pals again. That's how it is in Italian families, we get mad at each other, but not for long!

    Michael Moore needs to live the life a typical middle class Joe Lunchbox where he works all day and gets half of it taken away from him in taxes, union dues and what not. Michael Moore needs to live in the suburbs one of those row houses that look alike, and have to pay his own bills, clean his own house, fix his own sink and do his own laundry.


    After that, Michael Moore needs to live the life of a Mr. Mohammed Average Iraqi under the regime of Saddam Hussein. He needs to live through a lengthy prison sentence without knowing the charges against him. He needs to have his flesh seared and his testicles crushed during a torture session because his captors are bored. He needs to have members of his family disappear in the middle of the night, only to find their corpses years later in a mass grave. He needs to see what its like to have to live with the humiliation of having his wife, mother or sister raped.

    Perhaps if he lived the life of Joe Lunchbox or Mr. Mohammed Average Iraqi for a while, he'd slowly learn to respect them and what each of them were up against. Then perhaps he'd abandon his socialist fantasies and conspiracy theories!

    I totally believe it. I have friends I haven't been able to speak to for months because they are so bitter about being confronted by reality.

    I always said she was a dingbat. Sure glad I'm not married to her. Both my kids are republicans because of me, according to her. If raising them to have common sense is republican then I guess I'm guilty.

    I can relate. I come from a long line of Irish Catholic Democrats. My older brother and I are the black sheep of the family. :cheers2:

    After four years of Bush bashing and wackos, I reserve the right to gloat.
