Needless to say this Obammy lovin' tree huggin' fruitloop mindless chucklehead got an earful.
I wish I recorded it, but then I wouldn't have a post. I'm going to have to paraphrase a bit, but you'll get the gist of it.
"First off we need to refund all taxes paid for the last six months of 2008. "
"You neo-cons are all alike only want to help the rich! "(Note: anyone who doesn't worship Obammy is a neo-conservative in this person's opinion.)
"Well the rich buy stuff like TV's and cars, that fuels the economy. Giving tax beaks to the poor is as smart as paying money to the rich bankers, which Obammy just did."
"He did no such thing!"
"Bullshit, did you even look at the stimulus bill?"
"Well no, but..."
"But nothing! If your ignorant butt is going to call me a neo-con you better bring more to the table than an empty head and a Obammy bumper sticker."
"I'm not ignorant!"
"Sure you are, don't you know the difference between a Libertarian and a Republican?"
"What's a Libertarian?"
While I was blowing a gasket, my buddy jumped in.
"Well Mrs. X, do you like personal freedom?"
"Do you want to reduce taxes?"
"Do you feel everyone should have the same opportunities in America?"
"Do you hate to see government waste?"
"Well when you wake up you will be a Libertarian."
"Really? What's the bad things about Libertarians?"
"What's that mean?"
"No social security, no medicare or medicaid. But your taxes would be about 1/3 what they are now. But you have to be personally responsible for your own fate."
"Well I should get Social Security!"
"Doesn't matter if you want it or not, by 2015 the US is bankrupt. No matter what."
"What happens then?"
"Discretionary spending takes 100% of the budget, so no military, road repair, etc. and the US of A collapses."
"Oh yeah, and Libertarians don't like big government, so no $10 million studies of some wacko bird in Alaska on the government dime."
So Mrs. X wandered off looking like she swallowed that wacko bird from Alaska. Me and my buddy had to step in the stairwell to howl with laughter. We were laughing how we didn't even get to Jeffersonian rights or gun control. I know we don't have 100% of the Libertarian party line right, but hey... no one is perfect.
Maybe Mrs. X will wake up. I hope so. All it takes is logic, and a passion for what's best for everyone. These days anyone who's telling me I can't do something that's not breaking the law of common sense can take a dump while doing a handstand.
