So I like to blog on conservative sites. Yeah, I’m a conservative. Actually, because I voted for Ron Paul, I’m a 7%er. Hey, can’t be too bad. It sounds kinda lucky to me….
Believe it or not, I have a lot of progressive friends. I typically try to drive them crazy by singing show tunes full voice in closed quarters. (I figure it’s just payback for makin me watch those Michael Moore shows). It’s really a shame that our FLOTUS wasn’t around when he was a boy…she would’ve made damn sure schools weren’t servin those cream-filled-delights, aka, Twinkies at lunch. Then again, a skinny Michael Moore would be weird. Dang! What was I talkin about?
Oh, yeah. When Reason is Unreasonable. So I was taking up for a Progressive friend of mine on this site, because if an argument is legitimate, I’ll back you. Unless you’re Muslim. Cause Glen Beck says you’ll lie to me for 7 years, or somethin like that. I suppose that’s not as bad as my sisters….they’ve been lyin to me goin on, oh, 21 years now? Yes, that’s it. 21.
So when I posted the other side of the argument for FL, since at least FL was curious enough to want to see the other side, I was amazed and disappointed by the lack of logic employed by the others. I felt as if I were in the Seinfeld Bizzarro episode. Suddenly, my Conservative friends transformed into Bill Mahers. They pulled the classic Progressive move of attacking, while not bothering to argue the issue I was presenting. Evade and attack. In other words, there was no rhyme to their reason…..or is it reason to their rhyme? Whatever it was, it was heated and disturbing; so much so, that I pulled the post to keep the peace.
I believe if you think with Reason, you think objectively. I know I’m oftentimes the Fool. But how is one to learn if they are not? I just hope I will realise when I have become Unreasonable.
The important question is: What the hello happened to my Twinkies?
