So I was reading the Cheers/Jeers section of the Inlander today. Normally I read that section with a light heart, celebrating with the Cheers, and laughing at the morons in the Jeers. This one moron really caught my attention. It was the last Jeer in the section and he started out by complaining about all the people who write in to Jeer. He complained about the people who complained about those who smoke around children and leave dogs in cars. Okay, I can get that because as stupid as those choices are, they are still ours to make. What got me was when he called the complainers a bunch of liberals who were threatening to take our freedoms away. Obviously, he is a conservative. I couldn't help but think that all I've heard from conservatives lately are complaints about how things like health care reform and environmental standards strip our freedoms. Every conservative I've spoken too has claimed to be about freedom and America. Then I have one question... Where were the conservative parties when the patriot act was signed in to law? I mean, let me get this straight, its okay to spy on people and think about putting them in Gitmo for owning a copy of the Anarchists cookbook, but god forbid we should be made to help those less fortunate or (gasp) clean up after ourselves? I mean seriously....

Watch it Weylin... you're gonna get hauled in for thinking clearly. Clear thinking is decidedly unpopular. As I've learned on a regular basis. If you aren't one of the sheeple, . . . sigh.

Conservatives okay that base their political philosophy upon well founded ideas. It is the dogmatic hardcore ones that believe anything and everything that flies into their email inboxes and believes every word because it is what they want to hear that make me roll my eyes to the ceiling.

You know the emails of which I speak, "You won't see this in the press but it's true." That opening line means it is very likely false. Let's face it, if it was true, Fox news would be on it like stink on a fart.

Let's also throw in those who blame everything on Obama too. I am not saying that there have not been missteps or questionable policies. People like that amuse me on one hand, frighten me a bit on the other.

BTW, did anyone else see where the economy added over 450,000 new jobs in May and that the unemployment rate had dropped?

I couldn't agree with you more.
And hang in there Skwirly girl, the jobs are opening up around here so maybe it's a movement heading west?

Maybe some of those jobs will show up in the performance arts?
No? Well, one can hope, right?
And Wit, I must confess that us liberals can have just as many dogmatic nutjobs. Go figure...
