Nice story, but it’s like reading a DUmmie thread about how they told their right-wing relatives off on the holidays. They always, on the spur of the moment, have the most well thought out and perfectly delivered speeches, and assure us that it all happened exactly as they describe, leaving all the right wingers dumbfounded and too upset to respond.
I was thinking the same thing. Most lefties I know if you have any effect on them at all takes years.
That’s what I thought too. Those leftists would merely start talking about how the man’s premise is nothing like Obamacare, blah blah blah. I’ve read it, seen it, and heard it. I haven’t had the experience, because all my friends and family are conservative and despise Obama and the left, so I don’t get the chance (I wouldn’t have the nerve to interrupt a conversation between leftists I don’t know, they’re too crazy these days and you don’t know how they’ll react).
You don’t need a well-thought-out speech; I’ve shut people up by just asking how they like paying for all the foreign babies in our neighborhood when they can’t afford their own (according to them), or how they like being unable to get a variety of jobs because they can’t speak Spanish (we’re inundated with illegals, and legitimate jobs are now geared towards them), or (if they are “social liberals”) what they think of how our newcomers treat women, homosexuals, etc.?
The look of dismay, then resentment, is priceless; because you can ask in such a way that they think you’re on THEIR side, there doesn’t even have to be a confrontation...
