LIBERAL AT MY DINNER TABLE (vanty)
12252004 | me

Posted on 12/25/2004 6:54:14 PM PST by cyborg

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.

I've read your posts young lady. I don't believe for a moment that you are afraid of this lib. This is just a troll with no moderators to save it's dignity.

to continue,
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour. Hence he comes to us clad in all the careless terrors of nature; he is as strange as the stars, as reckless and indifferent as the rain. He is Man, the most terrible of the beasts. That is why the old religions and the old scriptural language showed so sharp a wisdom when they spoke, not of one's duty towards humanity, but one's duty towards one's neighbour. The duty towards humanity may often take the form of some choice which is personal or even pleasurable. That duty may be a hobby; it may even be a dissipation. We may work in the East End because we are peculiarly fitted to work in the East End, or because we think we are; we may fight for the cause of international peace because we are very fond of fighting. The most monstrous martyrdom, the most repulsive experience, may be the result of choice or a kind of taste. We may be so made as to be particularly fond of lunatics or specially interested in leprosy. We may love negroes because they are black or German Socialists because they are pedantic. But we have to love our neighbour because he is there-- a much more alarming reason for a much more serious operation. He is the sample of humanity which is actually given us. Precisely because he may be anybody he is everybody. He is a symbol because he is an accident.

I've been there and have ignored it. The only time I didn't is when this relative started saying our troops were killing Iraqis indiscriminately. This was last Easter and I was not about to sit there and ignore this outrageous lie and I said that was absolute nonsense. After over a year of not being challenged the lib relative was shocked out of his wits and actually got up and left the table speechless at being called on his assertions.

Haven't seen him since.

A good looking liberal? Is there such a creature?

Most all of them I can think of have an ugly look, no matter how gifted they were in the looks department at the beginning...

I'd suggest saying something like, "Do you feel the need to ruin every occasion by pushing your politics, or do you save it up for when you come to my house?"

That's assuming that he or she actually did that, of course (surely you wouldn't be this upset over a mere casual remark), and that he or she actually started it.

Of course that wont help you to avoid the periodic guffaw in response to a ponderous observation from the lib.

You caught me mid-swallow on that one. As the saying goes, you owe me a keyboard!

>> Whenever the lib asks for chicken, give them ham. If they ask for ham, give them chicken.

When called on it, just say you meant to hand them the ham before you handed them the chicken, or you favor defining 'ham' as both ham and chicken<<

Stay cool, note all of their opinions for future teardown and plan a little gathering of your conservative friends where this liberal is "the guest of honor". See the movie "The Last Supper" where liberals do the same to noted conservatives (just don't do what they did). Far better to leave a living, quivering husk of a former liberal as an example for everyone to learn from.

And Merry Christmas!

Ah -mmm

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.

Merry Christmas!

winding up,
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.

Wait a min....you have a computer in the bathroom?

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.

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.

Here is how to get along with a liberal.
Most of the time they will do all of the talking so whenever they shut up just tell them the following;

1.I am voting for Hillary in 08
2.Michael Moore will surely win an Oscar.
3. I feel your pain.
4. Don't you just love Barbara Streisand?

And if that doesn't work just remind them of what President Clint Eastwood said in one of his most famous speeches;

"Are you feeling lucky today sucker? Why don't you just make my day!"

Jeepers, what a perfect quote!

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.

Dont discuss Hillary at all. Just start the conversation nice and easy by recalling your favorite moment of election night '04 and go on from there. Merry Christmas, Girl!

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.
