I guess I was just raised differently then a liberal. Duh! Yes, I was given direction as a yougin that the world was there to conquer and you could be whatever you wanted to be. All you needed to do was work hard and become the best at whatever you chose to do. Of course there were some bumps along the way and those had to be overcome. Sometimes I won, sometimes I lost. But overall, maintaining a positive attitude trumps most all the crapola tossed at us.
Why is it that I read so much negativity from the left? Here locally and for the most part, all across this country! Is it just a natural state of mind for a liberal/democrat? Is it a hormone imbalance? Maybe how they were taught or raised? Maybe all that? I can tell you it sure is prevalent in them and they have brought the greatest country on the planet almost to its knees.
There doesn't seem to be a positive thing these lefties can muster up. Hell, this morning I read that those little plastic coffee containers are now a huge environmental problem according to these libs. I mean come on. Can't people enjoy anything without these people raining on the parade? I guess not. I do my best to stay positive about things in the face of the massive downers these lefty folks toss out on the nightly news and in most testimony on most podiums. I watch CSPAN and sometimes the California channel from Sacramento (I was known to read manuals too) which give me a look inside the minds of these negatory people.
America is the greatest place ever conceived politically and for human freedom yet listening to these lefty people you would think it was the worst. They claim I have "white privilege" yet complain if we call them a skin color for identification! They say I have to pay them "reparations" because supposedly my distant ancestors stole their labor and in the case of the Indians, their lands! Even though I and my ancestors never owned a slave of any color or stole land! Just because I am a "white skinned" person I am guilty they say. I just say, good luck with that, you are just lazy asses who want what I have worked for. Not gonna happen! The worst though are these self hating "white" liberals.
Locally the lefty contingent, the real out front whiny lib/democrats, they just are never happy. We on the conservative side kick their butts in almost every election here and instead of taking their lumps for not working hard for their candidates, they claim some "conspiracy" kept them from power. Sorry lib/dems, your views are not accepted here yet. You certainly have the rest of the state though and if you want to feel important I suggest you move to where you are predominant. Marin, San Francisco, East Bay and most coastal counties down to LA are huge majority lib/dem.
In our little corner of the world we have created a little bit of a sane place away from the whiny left. We get to read conservative pieces in our paper and on most of the blogs. Most of the elected people are right of center and they are full of common sense. Those positions filled by the left are usually a mess. Some Judges here think it is better to have a "kumbaya" circle of criminals than a spell in the clink. Reading our local paper and the amount of crime going on I would suggest more jail time and get those thieving lefty criminals off the streets.
We have seen the left infiltrate almost every aspect of our personal and business lives over the years. What fascinates me the most is these "progressives" used to be the harbingers of good change and personal freedom. Now they are all for shutting up and shuttng down people and views they don't agree with. Locally the arrest of Terry Lamphier for "child porn" on his county computer has brought out the worst in these lib/dems. They have decided that there is a grand conspiracy to send TL down the river. Seems they think he was a threat to the "right" and had to go! My goodness, that is truly nutty. Politically speaking Terry was pretty tame. One person does not threaten a Council or Board power structure. Three votes are needed. It appears the lib/dems can't even count!
So I suggest the lib/dem conspiracy folks get a colonoscopy as soon as possible. Maybe a clean-out of the old would really help you. But as we all know now, these lib/dems prefer to wallow in the crapola while claiming to be looking for the pony!
