FACEBOOK Message I received from liberal tonight...
Via Facebook

Posted on 11/18/2011 8:39:52 PM PST by Hildy

I wanted to share a FACEBOOK private Message I received tonight from an old friend (actually, my first boyfriend) who now lives in Massachussetts. Anyone who is my FACEBOOK friend knows my politics, hence..this..

Hi Hildy, I write to you privately so as not to air our differences in public.

Do you still think much of Herman Caine, [sic] who knows nothing of foreign affairs, and admits it. Is this who should make decisions that will effect the entire world? Do you really not believe that it is the 1% are the ones who the republicans cater to? Do you really believe that they care about "Joe six pack", or just lure him in to believe that he too can have some of that American pie "? I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate.I truly believe that the republicans are about keeping the tax cuts for the extremely wealthy and let the poor working schmuck pay all the rest. I find this despicable, and don't mind paying my fair share of tax's, as long as the supper wealthy pay their share. What's your take on this?

I saw the whole situation quite differently. I saw the ex boyfriend communicating with you as a curiosity; knowing in advance your views, yet writing in a way to get a reaction out of you. (maybe he wants to get to know you again?) Don't give him the pleasure.

If it were me, I wouldn't take it personally. I would have said something like: "Great to hear from you, not sure I totally understood the logic in your comments, but then again, you never were one for pillow talk."

And leave it at that. Not attempt to persuade to the conservative point of view, no gnashing of the teeth, nothing. He doesn't deserve a reaction.

Well, if he’s in Calif. and owns a million dollar house, he’s probably doing what most chiropractors here do, milk the workers’ comp system, big time. It’s just about the perfect crime. It is rampant here, although there ARE a FEW good honest ones still, just a few.

Please pass on to your IDIOT friend.

( I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate)

Well I live in a $100,000 house, not paid for, have almost zilch in savings but still donate to the food bank at my church, drive miles to attend funerals and stand flag lines for fallen soldiers, shovel snow for nearest 3 nighbors who are more elderly then I am and have medical issues. And volunteer time for various activities for children at my church. If it wasn’t for the liberal/socialist/democrat policies over the past 35 plus years that have destroyed this nations savings, job outlook and ability to prosper maybe we would not need to donate to the food banks as much!

__________________________________________________

Well said. And from a military mom, I am so thankful people like you are out there!

Hildy, you can also pass this along if you’d like: I live in a house that because of Chris Dodd and Barney Frank is now just at the break even line. That means IF we can find a buyer, it will sell for the loan and pay off the realtor. We will have lost over $20k in equity and down payment.

As for charitable giving of this hate-filled Republican household, my husband makes just under $100k, and after bills are paid, we financially support our church, St. Joseph’s Catholic charity for the Lakota Indian Children and various other charities that your friend might find too boring to take the time to read about.

So the next time you big mouthed high dollar friend has the gall to speak like an idiot and feel so good about himself, maybe you should tell him that he ought to take some of that equity in his million dollar home and GIVE IT to the Lakota Children. God knows they need the money more than he does!

My first instinct would be to point out how many self-made billionaires have created jobs and wealth for millions of people AND support a lot of charitable causes. Can the lefties claim the same of their own actions?

Do you really not believe that it is the 1% are the ones who the republicans cater to?

Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, Michael Moore. Those are democrats. That's the 1%. A lot of those trust fund babies out protesting have it real easy too living under mom and dad's roof.

I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate.I truly believe that the republicans are about keeping the tax cuts for the extremely wealthy and let the poor working schmuck pay all the rest.

I don't live in a million dollar home, or even a $200K home. I own two business, have high debt, and barely have enough to pay the bills and loans. If richboy here wants to do me a favor, he can tell his democrats to get the hell out of my way. If he cares about poor working schmucks, he can open up his checkbook and donate himself. If richboy wants to see folks like me hire somebody, he can help pay my 30-45% federal tax rates, depending on my year. That doesn't account for my state, property, sales, auto registration, and gas taxes.

If Mr. Massachusetts wants to see the effect of what his democrats do, he should take a drive down Seven Mile in Detroit. Fifty years of democrats. Lawrence and Springfield in his own state may work too.

Great response, Hildy.
In ‘04, a friend sent me some lib friend of hers online search for pros and cons about John Kerry and W, so she could “intelligently” decide whom to vote for. I decided to pull out my “big Conservative guns” and wrote back a three page fact filled account of just what John Kerry and his entire DemRAT party stood for with some..er, colorful language.

My friend was mortified that I would speak to her protege that way...saying she was a lovely and thoughtful young woman who just wanted to start a “chat” about the candidates.
Well she shouldn’t have shown up in my inbox voicing anything other than loyalty and love for this country and first principles.

Talking with Libs(if you must) is like trying to teach a pig to sing. If this is your first go at it, you did a good job but you have to decide if it’s worth it going forward for the sake of your mental and emotional health!

According to the first line of your post it reads.

I wanted to share a FACEBOOK private Message I received tonight from an old friend (actually, my first boyfriend) who now lives in Massachussetts. Anyone who is my FACEBOOK friend knows my politics, hence..this..

Hi Hildy, I write to you privately so as not to air our differences in public.


Note the words “I write to you privately so as not to air our differences in public.”
Not to make a big deal of it, why make it public to everyone if it is supposed to be a private message and the sender doesn’t want it aired in public regardless if his name is blanked out?
I certainly wouldn’t want my message aired out in public if I specifically mentioned to someone not to tell anyone. I know lots of people would probably agree. I am not defending his comments and I didn’t read them.

I know your thread will get lots of hits and people commenting.

I don’t want to start an argument, but I thought I would bring it out to your attention. If I sent you this comment in private email you might have aired it out in public.

Hildy you fireball. You'd make any conservative male proud (and us c. women too.). lol. I just love handing liberal men and women their ass in their hat :-D. They can't win debates or arguments. This is why they use character attacks etc.

Often if their heart and mind is open (or they just lost the debate :) they very much end up respecting me and know that BS ain't gonna fly and that they better watch what they say around me as I will challenge them. Life is good! You go Hildy.

I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate.

That's the core of the liberal soul--"*I* get to live the lifestyle I criticize others for living, but *I CARE*!"

I was on Facebook literally one day and then deleted almost all my contacts except a couple I let on because of work associations. One friend, an ultra-liberal, just posted the most awful Nation stuff every day. I couldn't figure out where people got the time to post all of this garbage.

I just turned 46, and have admitted I'm becoming one of those 'closed-minded' sorts I used to hate. I'm just too fed up with the incessant stupidity from liberals who keep trying to change me. It seems I give their point of view a fair hearing, but they are dismissive and insulting of mine.

So I feel for you for getting this message. It's why I have very little of this kind of communication. It only infuriates, and life's just too short.

You should say: "Really? The difference between you and me is that I give to the less fortunate because I choose to, not because I am forced to do so by the government -- which chooses to waste more of my hard earned money than to actually help the poor." And then say, "how's Barack (57 states, Hawaii is in Asia) Obama working out for you since he has driven the U.S. economy into the toilet and our country is a hell of a lot worse off than we were 3 years ago?" Then defriend him.

I live in a million dollar home and have considerable savings, but still have the heart to care about those less fortunate.

Your friend exhibits the traits of those enlisted in the Utopian Brigade of Mark Levin's so-called "Ameritopia".

Next January you'll witness the blinds going up and the sun shining in on what has clouded this country for many years. Dictionary.com describes Utopia thus:

U·to·pi·a   [yoo-toh-pee-uh] Show IPA noun
1. an imaginary island described in Sir Thomas More's Utopia (1516) as enjoying perfection in law, politics, etc.
2. ( usually lowercase ) an ideal place or state.
3. ( usually lowercase ) any visionary system of political or social perfection.

I can't wait for his new book because I've lived through a period in this country when trying to create utopia has been ever-present. The utopians have created a lot of 'bleeding hearts', and just how does one go about that? With a lot of knives thrust into the chests of otherwise healthy Americans, that's how.

Sadly, it doesn't end there; individual sovereignty is bled from the person as well. They'll gladly bequeath something of their own (rights) for the well-being of the 'collective' and their peers will hug them, feeling their pain at the recognition of the pain suffered by others while they trek the yellow brick road toward 'destination: Utopia', where life is perfect- almost (because nothing ever is)- and only a gifted few have the eyeballs to see it.

Forming "A More Perfect Union" was not intended to build Utopia, but a place where individual rights flourished beyond the reach of the statist/utopian. That place was America. My, how we have floundered and failed in this regard.

If there is any road back from Utopia it'll require suturing the bleeding hearts to stem the loss of self-respect for individual rights. We'll have to re-teach our little boys that it is alright to kick a bully in the nuts and our little girls to like the boy who does it. And to have many, many babies who'll grow up to do the same. Because, who was the bully that stuck grandma and grandpa in the heart- bleeding it- and screwed things up initially? Was it not a bully? And was it not the government who taught them to 'care' more about others than their own unborn or themselves? Did not, the Supreme Court take away rights people used to take for granted?

Were the road to Utopia not strewn with the bodies of millions of unborn fetuses, I might not recognize the danger ahead, but I do. I will not- get in the boxcar. I will travel no further. Nor will any that I care about. This Train Ain't Bound For Glory is all I need to know. I'm getting off in November 2012. The next media pundit who hollers, "All aboard!" better not do it standing next to me. Just sayin'.

I totally avoid liberals with that mindset (which is most) They cannot be reasoned with, they have evil in their heart.

You should have just written,

In the past 100 years Leftists, other Statists and believers in "government for good" have killed or murdered over 200 million innocent humans.

You friends sides with evil -- a fact that can't be disputed.

These people have to consider themselves superior one way or another and so they create situations to imagine themselves as superior. I think this lies behind true racism as well.

My standard response to one such as this goes along *these* lines:
You are not only confused about *where* you are, you are evidently confused about *when* you are. Hint, this is the United States of America, the 21st century. It most emphatically is *not* Europe, the 12th century. You are *not* Milord/Milady, and I am *not* a serf, and for d-d sure not *your* serf. You may think you're all that, and a bag of chips besides, but I am singularly unimpressed with you, and the size of your ego. When you've got a set of receipts, marked "dues paid' as husband/wife, father/mother, and citizen, then get back to me...
