Conservatives believe Liberals are misguided but can be rationed with.

Remember Sandra Fluke, the 30-year old student who got her 15 minutes of fame last year by becoming the poster child for subsidized birth control?

Shes fortunately faded away, but the issue is still with us because the courts are being asked to decide whether government has the right to coerce people into decisions that violate their religious values.

This Conservative suffers no such delusions.

I believe that one can reason with a Pet Rock more successfully than one can with a Libtard.

No, I don’t. I think liberals are idiots with enormous egos that are fed by evil power hungry leaders.

Oh no she hasn't. She was on the tube a couple of weeks ago bleating about either the Pubbies or the Tea Party was anti woman b/c they want spending cuts.

“drug giant Pfizer, which sells $7.6 million a year in name-brand birth control pills,”

Million? That’s pretty paltry.

“Conservatives believe Liberals are misguided but can be rationed with.”

“Rationed?? How do you “ration” with someone? Rationing with a liberal is probably about as easy as reasoning with a liberal. Reasoning with someone who speaks and thinks in a different language than you do is nearly impossible.

They can be reasoned with because we talk past each other, not realizing that the other has opposite base assumptions on which they are building their argument.

Those base assumptions have to be addressed. Often times the liberal has no idea that they even HAVE base assumptions, after all, they are ASSUMPTIONS and don’t need to be examined, they just ARE.

I refuse to be rationed with liberals.

In the current liberal environment most of those who will be allowed to live will be liberals.

Conservatives will mostly be rationed out.

How fair is that?

Liberals should be severely rationed in a society. A few are appropriate as cautionary examples but the ration should be very small. They make enough noise that three can seem to be a horde.

She’s (Fluke)fortunately faded away

Only temporarily.

She will come back, likely to run for office.

She has earned her liberal stripes, she has name recognition, Libs adore her and Rush drew widespread attention to her.

When we are young we are unwise yet certain of our beliefs.

As we grow older we become less certain, but we have become more set in our ways and have worked ourselves into situations where it is very difficult to change our beliefs.

I think it is true for most people, liberal or conservative, that most can't allow for their views to change much so arguments only serve to reinforce biases.

I think the best one can do is get someone with differing views to see that maybe you're not completely crazy for believing differently.

If the USA starts to become more conservative it will only be because a huge swath of young people today are finding it hard to get a job. If those young people want more out of life they will want politicians that create a business friendly environment so they can be successful. If those young people are OK with living off the dole then stick a fork in us. We're done.

It’s not really liberals vs conservatives, the real problem is rational vs irrational. It’s found everywhere, especially in business. I’ve run into many conservative Christian business leaders who are flat out irrational more often than they should be - even the CEO of the company I work for. It’s been unbelievable to me, make a value statement in a business plan then don’t live it, when living it would clearly be better for the company’s bottom line. Pride contributes to that behavior, and often in the blend is a certain amount of narcissism.

So it's the evil corporations that are to blame?

Don't hate the playa, hate the game.

It's the all powerful government and politicians that make the game.

They must be brought to heel.

Million? That’s pretty paltry.

It's why big business and big government go hand in hand. Notice how the chamber of commerce through the "moderates" in the GOP spend more time attacking conservatives than fighting for the repeal of 0bamacare.

How many in the McCain wing of the GOP are protesting the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups?

Rationed with? Well I guess that works given the liberal mindset that big gov’t run by them will ration out everything.

Democrats should definitely be rationed, very thinly. But they are irrational and can not be reasoned with. No way, no how.
