Some time ago, one of the whackjobs here started a thread about Moderates and Independents. I found it funny that somone so weak minded, they could form their own opinions, couldn't control his anger toward those of us who can. Most of the threads here start about an issue or candidate. Then after a few posts, they deteriorate into the usual petty name-calling on an individual or group basis. Oh well. At least sometimes, they're interesting for a while. So extreme Left-Wingers don't really impress when it comes to things like unions, gun-ownership, Obama and ObamaCare. I'm not talking about Liberals - they can sually acknowledge that although they would like to see changes in laws, simply owning a gun isn't extreme; they often criticize Obama and Obama Care. I'm talking about the Extreme Left that get's their every opinion fed to them by DailyKos or Rachel Maddow. They're often insult the poster and often never address the points. Once in a while, they assume someone disagreeing with them on a particular issue, must be a Conservative (as has been the case with me on half dozen occasions). And heaven forbid, you be someone who just isn't sure about Man-Made Global Warming! You're diagreeing with the majority of the world and therefore must be an idiot! Of course, if you're part of that 86% of the world that believes in God, then majorities have nothing to do with being right! Then there are the Extreme Right-Wingers. They're even worse and much easier to spot. Obviously all their opinions are fed to them by FOX, Rush etc... They don't often insult posters - they always do. They don't occasionally label someone disagreeing with them as a Liberal, they always do. Their definition of a Liberal is easy: Anyone disagreeing with them on anything. Hell, some can't even ackowledge that some of the whacky bullsh1t that comes out of Michele Whackmann's mouth could be wrong! I've had a couple whackjobs here make it clear that they didn't care what my opinions were on political issues, they just "knew" I was some sort of Secret Agent Liberal! :laughing: Look, if your opinions are completely predictible on All Democrats, All Republicans, Taxes, The Bush Wars, The Obama Wars, ObamaCare, Abortion, Gay Marriage, Unions, Gun Control, Fed vs. States Rights, Domestic Drilling, Global Warming, Immigration etc... you might want to consider whether you are actually doing much thinking for yourself. If you're some Liberal, Conservative, Libertarians or Tea Party sheeple whose every view comes straight out of the appropriate pamphlet, and who can't even acknowledge differing views, guess what? The only person you're impressing is the one typing at your keyboard. And maybe a few of those sheeple who follow the exact same shephard.
