How do I deal with a real Hillary Clinton sycophant in my house? I'm hiding in my bathroom and am so ashamed. I've avoiding talking so as not to start a fight.
It's YOUR house, right? Get back out there and enjoy YOUR HOUSE and YOUR Christmas!
It's YOUR house - repeat after me "It's MY house, My rules or the highway and I say, No politics, no knocking anything I believe in. That's "Courtesy 101" - (When in someone else's house, you do not say anything rude or upsetting to the host/hostess. (And you not a "hostperson".
Now stand your ground. If the lib doesn't want to be polite, "politely" ask them to leave. If that doesn't work, ORDER Them to leave...and for heavens sake, don't let them darken your door again.
The institution of the family is to be commended for precisely the same reasons that the institution of the nation, or the institution of the city, are in this matter to be commended. It is a good thing for a man to live in a family for the same reason that it is a good thing for a man to be besieged in a city. It is a good thing for a man to live in a family in the same sense that it is a beautiful and delightful thing for a man to be snowed up in a street. They all force him to realize that life is not a thing from outside, but a thing from inside. Above all, they all insist upon the fact that life, if it be a truly stimulating and fascinating life, is a thing which, of its nature, exists in spite of ourselves. The modern writers who have suggested, in a more or less open manner, that the family is a bad institution, have generally confined themselves to suggesting, with much sharpness, bitterness, or pathos, that perhaps the family is not always very congenial. Of course the family is a good institution because it is uncongenial. It is wholesome precisely because it contains so many divergencies and varieties. It is, as the sentimentalists say, like a little kingdom, and, like most other little kingdoms, is generally in a state of something resembling anarchy. It is exactly because our brother George is not interested in our religious difficulties, but is interested in the Trocadero Restaurant, that the family has some of the bracing qualities of the commonwealth. It is precisely because our uncle Henry does not approve of the theatrical ambitions of our sister Sarah that the family is like humanity. The men and women who, for good reasons and bad, revolt against the family, are, for good reasons and bad, simply revolting against mankind. Aunt Elizabeth is unreasonable, like mankind. Papa is excitable, like mankind Our youngest brother is mischievous, like mankind. Grandpapa is stupid, like the world; he is old, like the world.
The best way that a man could test his readiness to encounter the common variety of mankind would be to climb down a chimney into any house at random, and get on as well as possible with the people inside. And that is essentially what each one of us did on the day that he was born.
That was my first thought, too. : )
Girlfriend, is it not YOUR dinner table? Get out there and eat! You do not have to respond to everything an idiot says. If that person has to stay, there's nothing wrong with saying you don't want to discuss politics today.
If you have the authority to kick that person out of the house (are you at your mom's?), then hand 'em their coat and tell 'em good night. Have some egg nog and relax. Last thing anyone needs is a liberal on the holidays.
Perhaps instead of serving dessert in a bowl, you could serve it in knee-pads...as, sort of a hint.
>> Rule two: if they start, load both barrels and fire at point blank range. Reload and fire at will. Continue firing until you hear babbling sounds.
As a member of this forum - you have been paying attention, right?, you should be able to "slice and dice" with ease<<
Actually, this is the best advice. Give 'em both barrels. Slice and dice, brrrrrrby!
It helps to have some viking kittens in the house when you do it. Do you have cats?
Ask her about the 400k hillary's brother got in legal fees handling the marc rich pardon.
Don't discuss politics.
Have someone phone you, respond in a loud voice, "No, Craig Livingston doesn't live here anymore," hang up, say to the sycophant, "I wish I'd never hired that guy!" and then immediately change the subject.
Oooh, oooh. I got another good one.
If you're serving green-bean salad, ladle out generous portions, and after half their portion is gone, ask them if they know that botulism is often caused by poorly-processed green beans.
That last phrase -- "the ... stimulating society of his equals--of free men, perverse, personal, deliberately different from himself" is the best description of Free Republic I've ever seen or heard.
Someone tell Jim Robinson!
...oh, and Merry Christmas.
My favorite was when Ed Bradley reminded Captain Dan that he used to teach math, and that Jean F'n Kerry was mathematically eliminated. Well, I actually didn't see it, but I read about it on FR.
Your expertise in this matter is needed. Cyborg needs help, lol!
Shrug your shoulders and say "whatever".Remember a cat cares little what a rat thinks of it.
My concern would not be with that mouthy a**hole, but with the reactions of others listening to her. I would not try to beat her, but would ask leading questions hoping to sink her or expose her.
