    The bitterness, nastiness and outright hatred of the far right...and even moderate right...since the November election has been unbelievable, but not that unexpected. They are acting as if the grocery store shelves are empty; As if the Super Bowl got canceled by executive order; As if we are gassing puppies; As if we have banned sunshine or something.

    It aint that bad. It wasnt that bad under Bush. And it aint that bad under Obama.

    The problem is the crazy partisans. They mostly dont live much life outside their little bubble of wakeup/home-to-work-to-home/bedtime, and the cable TV and talk radio that fills those (-) slash marks I used. They get the usual daily stresses that most people on Earth have: How to keep food, shelter, clothing on their family's slate in life. Historically, people have always wanted that.

    Government has a role in society to simply provide a canvas for people to make what they make of their own lives. That cost a price: Taxes. But after that is paid, we can live a pretty damn awesome life, in a damn awesome country.

    But when you really calm down and look at it all, its a pretty great deal. As long as we are paying $5 for a cup of coffee at Starbucks (rather than the $1 gas station alternative across the street) and spending $20 for a movie (rather than read a free book) then we cant bitch that much about life in America.



    SO I ASK.........which group of bitter, unrealistic crybabies is the worst: 2004 Democrat/liberals, or 2012-present day GOP conservatives? Both are full of shit alarmists who need to take stock of how great they actually have it.

    Obama has been widely heralded today for delivering the most partisan, radical Inauguration speech of all time.

    Stop pretending the Republicans are the divisive ones.

    Actually, I think you have to go all the way back to the 1968 ultra-Liberals to find the political complement to the 2012 UnConservatives.

    Something just occurred to me. You know how you are supposed to add "in bed" to the end of a fortune cookie fortune?

    At the end of a statement by an UnConservative, add "according to Fox News".

    "Obama has been widely heralded today for delivering the most partisan, radical Inauguration speech of all time"...according to Fox News.

    Im not pretending that. Partisan dipshits on both sides are divisive. As much as Obama did that, we get the right wing idiots preaching "Makers vs Takers", as if we have a society full of people with either an "M" or a "T" tattooed on their forehead.
