I just put THE smackdown on a couple RW idiots (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x4282225)

I used my lunch time to go to the grocery store and pick up a few things. I was standing in line behind what I assumed were a mother, daughter and grand baby. The daughter had a baby about 18 months or so I'd guess, and was pregnant again.

They were talking about the election and lamenting that it was going so badly for McCain and the repugs, and talking about how bad things would be with the "awful Democrats" winning and "damn liberals" running the country and blah, blah blah. As we got closer to the register, I saw the daughter pull out an Access Oklahoma card, which is our electronic version of food stamps. Then I heard her mom tell her they would have to pick up her WIC at another store since the one we were in didn't do WIC vouchers or something like that.

It was at that point that I said "excuse me, I don't normally butt into other people's conversations, but I'd just like to say *You're Welcome*..." They shot me a puzzled look and after a pause, I said, "I'm sorry, I thought I heard you say *thank you*.."

The mom looked real puzzled and asked "why would we say that?" I said "because I'M one of those *DAMN LIBERALS* and *AWFUL DEMOCRATS* that has voted and fought damn hard to make sure you have the government food benefits you're so happily spending right now, among other things. If everything were left solely up to the tender mercy of the ultra conservative idiot republicans, you'd be in a world of hurt trying to find something to eat today!"

The mom just looked at me and sort of stammered and said "sorry, I didn't mean anything bad by what I said" I said "the hell you didn't, you just didn't think there were any of us *godless liberals* within earshot, or none that would have the guts to speak up. Next time you start running your mouths, don't be surprised when someone calls you out on your bullshit. Fact is, what your family is enjoying in benefits, which by the way I'm happy you have, is the result of my Democratic, union-man Grandfather voting for FDR in the 30s, and my Democratic Teamster Father voting for Jack Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson....and God willing Barack and the Democrats will win two weeks from now and set about saving the day once again from yet another godawful mess the damn republicans have created.Something to think about before you go into the voting booth."

I shut up and the two of them just sort of looked down at their feet as the checker finished ringing them up and they got out of there. As I was checking out, my checker was grinning and a teenaged girl in line behind me said "you're awesome....and you don't even look like a Democrat!"

Now I just wonder, what the hell is a Democrat supposed to look like?

17 recommendations for this silly bouncy....but....

20. Great story. Its amazing how often politics occur

in the grocery store lines.

What is it about conservatives, that just can't resist going on about their idiotic political thoughts in the checker line at the grocery store? (I think the Gas pumps are a close second)

You'd think that after awhile they would get tired of getting smacked down and having their stories of humiliation appear on blogs.

very nice.

:D :D

42. This didn't happen.

Sorry, I just don't buy it. No "uh"s? No stammering? Your thoughts as spoken are as articulate as they are as thought?

I mean, I run into republicans all the time, spouting off, and I'm willing to admit that i get mad and then become sub-articulate in turn. When i try to confront them, I rarely can dredge up kind of articulate, ordered speech many DUers seem to conjure at the drop of a hat. I'm usually more like, "Uh, yeah, right! You're a jerk!" or something...and then LATER, after I've calmed down, I think of the clever ripostes I shoulda used.

I'm of the firm belief that 99% of all "freeper/repuke encounter" stories are just fantasies. Either that, or there's a kernel of versimillitude and a truckload of wishful thinking/embellishment.

No offense: this isn't personal. I just don't believe this actually happened.

Even the Denizens are getting tired of the same story recycled over and over, always ending the same way.

Moonbasts, it seem have little or , no imagination to speak of.

Add a "So, ..." to the beginning and a little more creativity and this would have potential.

Oh the fantasy land these people live in...:rolleyes:

If it was real life and they spoke to a couple of conservative women like that, they would of kicked his ass and told them to learn some manners.;)

If this is a true story the guy is just a total dick. What is the point of making the two of them feel bad?

I've said this before and I'll say it again. I prefer conservative message boards because I like hearing stupid, hackney, partisan bullshit coming from people I disagree with rather than those I agree with. These people come in both red and blue.

Dirty, hairy, smelly and with about a two day growth of beard. And we won't even talk about the men. :eek:

What the DUmmy meant to say was; I'm one of those wild-eyed, idiot morons that keep shrieking for those worthless give-a-way programs that Conservatives fund. :mad:
