That is how I feel about you. Most of my readers will wonder why I bother, but I cannot help myself. You are like the son I am glad I never had. Somehow I feel it necessary to try and help you overcome your angry bitter outlook on life. I don't want you to always be the relative at family get-togethers no one wants to sit beside. It has to hurt for you to hear relatives murmur, "Dave, I love him, but I really do not like him".
You see condescension and an I am always right attitude gets old. Fast. I am here to help you make friends and be a more pleasant guy to be around.
I have read a great deal of you blog posts and comments. It is clear you hate those who make predetermined judgements about a person based on his sexual orientation or race. Yet you are guilty of the very same. You automatically assume anyone who may have a different viewpoint is automatically stupid.
You're just a middle-class salesman in a shitty state who's never risen above low-level management who votes against his own self interests.
You're pathetic. And what's even sadder is that you're happy being pathetic because you're too stupid to know that the GOP is fucking you.
Where do I even start? Some of us are capable of thinking. I can read the news and draw my own conclusions. I have a very good education. I graduated from a top 50 university. I would put my education against yours any day. I have read some of the greatest political thinkers and philosophers of the ages, including Plato, Marx, Smith, Descartes, Hume, Lock, Bacon, Paine, Jefferson, Madison and others. I understand the political science and historical aspects of economic thought.
You can believe it or not, but I rarely listen to Limbaugh, I find him a pompous ass. I have been to Breitbart's site exactly twice in my life (last year in the Acorn scandal and this week). I read the blogs over there on the left. I do not watch Fox News except during election times. Under what basis do you think independent people of similar political beliefs cannot come up with the same thoughts? I guess you get all of your ideas from MSNBC and Kos. Do you not have any original ideas? Does Ed Schultz do your thinking?
As far as my professional life, you know nothing about me. You have no idea of my title, work experience or managerial capabilities. I am willing to bet my managerial background is significantly more broad than yours. I have been a plant superintendent responsible for three shifts of production and more than 500 workers. I have been a global sales manager with the travel record to prove it. You make assumptions with the basis not in evidence.
As far as where i live, Indiana has factories and farms, and museums, and plays, and opera and the symphony. There are far worse places to raise a family and to denigrate the State shows further bias.
AS far as my politics. I am not Republican, I am Conservative. Two minutes of research and understanding of basic English would show you that.
Of course like most of your ideological ilk, you are angry and bitter that 60% of Americans reject your progressive worldview. History is replete with examples of the success of small government and laissez-faire economics. You can not point to a single successful socialist economy. Europe is trying to move away from big government as fast as it can. The State controlled economy destroyed the USSR. In the history of the world there has never been a society so productive, so successful as the United States.
I could debate you on the the success for minorities under the Great Society, or the ramifications of Government control of private industry.
My kids all operated under the idea that I was old and stupid when the ywere teenagers. Thankfully they grew up and realized I had a valid points of view.
I guess some people just mature a little more slowly.
