About a week ago, I had another lesson in liberal civility.
I was pulling into the parking lot of a burger-joint when an agitated young man drove up next to me. He rolled down his window, as I did. I thought I might have cut him off in traffic and prepared to apologize.
The first words out of his mouth were: Are you a retard? This is known as a rhetorical question. I was tempted to answer, No, but I am still beating my wife.
The graduate of The Charlie Sheen School of Refinement was incensed by one of my bumper stickers, Global Warming: a dangerous man-made phenomenon caused by the mixture of recycled Marxist ideas and junk science.
I told him I wasnt going to have a conversation with someone who begins by asking if Im special. We went into the restaurant. He was calm for a while, but as soon as he finished eating, he began loudly berating me again.
I was a cretin. I was too stupid to live in a superior state like Massachusetts and should move to Tennessee, where people are such mental defectives that they question the revealed truth of global warming. Like Al Gore, I innocently asked? That enraged him further. Finally, he delivered what he considered the coup de grace, telling other diners that I was a product of FOX News. Then he stormed out.

One of the little pleasures in life is irritating Libtards into exposing their true colors in public.
You’re lucky he didn’t pull out a gun and shoot you to death...
Lots of angry people out there nowadays. Trust me.
You got that right.
Liberalism is indeed a mental disorder. I will not slap a right wing conservative message on my car. It won’t change anyone’s mind. And it might provoke an idiot liberal into an ugly confrontation.
Who needs that?
They want civility?
“An armed society is a polite society”
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If you miss that, all kinds of stupidity starts coming out.
A nice blast of “Pepper Spray” would have been a better response. Claim as you thought: “Road Rage” and “I was in fear for my life and my safety. I had nowhere to go in this crowded parking and had to protect myself.”
It’s much more fun to put those kind of bumper stickers on top of the Obama/Biden stickers on deserving cars.
I’d get one of those bumper stickers. Around here everyone would agree. That’s no fun! I’d like to see one with a figure of a man with his head stuck up his butt. The text would say. Gee, it’s hot in here. It must be global warming.
I stll remember when a slighly uptight computer guy came to Mississippi to help us with a VAX computer. We happily took him out to eat to the local burger joint. Best burgers around. For some reason he was put off by the fact the place had a dirt floor.
Would have paid money to see this idiot venting like Old Faithful. LOL.
I know you understand, there has be lots of people killed, run over, beat down and shot to death over minor traffic feuds...That craps happens all the time..
My point is one never knows who is in the other vehicle or where their head is...They could have just robbed a greedy mart and killed the clerk, killed their wife, shot up some party, 3 times loser being hunted down, etc.
Always best not to get into it on the road....best advise, is to blow it off.
I suppose you could buy Eau de Cannibas spray, and confuse the heck out of him.
>> The first words out [of the young man’s] mouth [to Feder] were: “Are you a retard?” This is known as a rhetorical question. I was tempted to answer, “No, but I am still beating my wife.”
So then, the answer is a resounding “yes”.
We wouldn't have nearly the amount of dumbasses in this nation if, after they said something blatantly intended to enrage or insult you, you were allowed to knock their teeth down their throats.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The biggest anti-civility perpetrators in the US are UNION GOONS!!!!
That “civility” institute does NOT belong in the great State of Arizona. Put it in someplace like Michigan, with a high concentration of union goons. They need to learn how to be civil more than anyone else.
Don Feder, the author of the article, is a great guy. I’ve heard him speak. He’s even pro-Serbian!!!!
Who needs that?"
I welcome an ugly confrontation. I'll even take the first punch in order to have a legal excuse to kick the smarmy little Leftist faggot's ass. Problem is, at 6-3, 275 pounds, they usually don't mouth off to me.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I would have been strongly inclined to give better than I got wrt deriding GoreBull Warming with somebody who approached me like that.
LOL! Is “Bear Spray” legal? That works at 35’.
This story is a good example of why concealed carry should be legalized.
***** “”Judge, he called me a retard, a cretin, and insulted my honor. Them’s fightin’ words, so I kicked his narrow, twig-boy ass all the way back to the Hah-vahd campus.”” *****
Only in America!
I think I woke the neighbors Cat... that is laugh out loud, bug the felines across the street Funny.
You are correct. People like that will not lip off to someone who could kick their butts.
A young woman with multiple piercings made a snide remark to our son (also a big guy) while he was putting gas in his SUV.
She said, “Don’t you feel stupid driving one of those things?”
He replied, “Don’t you feel stupid having a bone in your nose?”
She shut up after that.
Now I am getting misty!
The Left is really radicalizing the youth through the internet. Since Leftists have had such a negative effect on families, the normal insecurity felt by liberals has been greatly magnified.
Me to hipster doofus:
“You might be able to kick my ass, but you’re gonna have to prove it”.
Me to my wife: “Act like you’re not with me”.
Wife: “No problem”.
MM, thanks for posting Don Feder....he is a breath of fresh air with his snapshot of living amongst the loony Mass lefty’s!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Well, he was a police officer for 5 years and is now in federal law enforcement, so he will pretty much say whatever is on his mind. He isn’t exactly a shrinking violet.
I forgot to mention the best part. He was from Massachusetts.
