Original message I just had a run in with a conservative
I've never been as upset with a conservative as I am right now. I made an off handed remark about how it feels like oil companies are gouging us because oil prices have fallen so much and how gas prices haven't changed. He started attacking me for being a liberal and telling me why don't I go pray to emperor Obama to give me more of his tax dollars so I can afford gas. Then he said if it wasn't for Obama gas prices would be lower but Obama is collecting the extra money for his political coffers. Then he said something about how this proves that Social Security should have been privatized and if it wasn't for idiots like me who stopped it sr. citizens wouldn't have to wait to retire. Then he goes on about how it's all my fault that Jimmy Carter forced Fannie Mae to buy bad loans and that's why the economy crashed. Now obviously this is all bullshit, but I've never been as angry and I can't seem to get over how reprehensible this guy was. I think what bothered me was this is a well educated 50 something year old. Not some Naive teenager. I couldn't believe the vitriol that was coming from this guy. I just wanted to grab him and shake him and plead to him to stop watching Fox News and listening to Rush Limbaugh. I've had to listen to the song "Falling Slowly" about 20 times just to be calm enough to type this. It makes me so sad that people actually have these thoughts.
Even the DUmmies aren't buying this one...
