60yo white middle class male from SoCal. I've loved comic strips and comic books for as long as I can remember!
It was a suspension of disbelief in real life. They knew damn well it wasn’t true but it just sounded so good they had to pretend to believe it. Seriously, just try and listen to these people without assuming anything. They are not dumb. They are true believers. Like highly religious people I know who have PhDs. Some are liberal some are arch conservative and didn’t get their degrees by being dumb or illogical. Dump followers aren’t stupid and that makes it all the more disturbing. As long as we dismiss them as stupid sheep we will never understand the true problem.
That was funny!
I laughed at that one hell of a lot harder than I should have.
I started to groan but actually that was pretty good!
Gunther you lucky dawg.
Oh I read them alright. It gets old and I’m ashamed that I sometimes get sucked into it.
I know what the wife’s costume is gonna be this Halloween.
And most of us dudes on the Left aren’t self loathing. I don’t know where people get that. Just another divisive tactic I guess. I love being a guy. Guns, beer (well I can’t drink anymore), old pick ups, fast cars, motorcycles, traditional guy stuff. I love Ford V8s (I grew up with nothing but Fords).
We’re not all nut job SJWs, some of us are reasonable individuals. We have to all work together, this nation is now a powder keg and the situation is a hair’s breadth from being completely out of hand.
I know a Republican who marched with MLK and is involved in many charities some would call liberal. My politically conservative engineer bro in law is working on clean energy. I know liberals who love God and worship Him. As for immigration, I don’t believe in borders. Bad people will cross borders no matter what. Laws don’t work, a stupid wall won’t work (I lived in San Diego and they build tunnels you can drive a truck through), and the bible says to welcome and not mistreat the stranger. You know the overwhelming majority are good people who want a better life. The government’s own figures show they don’t hurt this country, they make it better. They don’t get anything they haven’t earned. Anyone who says otherwise is repeating falsehoods.
Let the haters stew in their own juices.
