Ok, so you guys know me, you know that I'm probably the most liberal person you can imagine.
...or perhaps among the top five.
I went to Humboldt State University, I'm an environmentalist, to me war is a last resort, and I was once a registered Socialist, and I actually switched to being a registered Democrat because I want to help bring the party back to the true left.
...but last night, I was shocked and awed by the moonbat I met. There I was, at the Angelides victory rally/party, crowded in front of the stage with a bunch of people awaiting Phil's victory speech, and she began speaking to me, much to my dismay. She laid a guilt trip on me becasue I still own a vehicle. She said that you can commute ANYWHERE using public transit, and when I told here the neighborhood that I live in and where I work, she said, "oh yeah, that IS tough". To that I said, well, that's why I bought a motorcycle. She said motorcycles are worse than cars! She said I should buy a new hybrid - to that I had to remind her the sheer ammount of energy it takes to manufacture a new car, to say nothing of the pollution it creates. Consumerism has FAR greater impact on the environment than riding and maintaing an old motorcycle. This lady was NUTS.
She went on to tell me that the war in Iraq was genocide - that the soldiers recieved orders from "high-up" to torture and murder Iraqi civillians. She said Bush was worse than Hitler.
I'm not fucking kidding.
I mean, I'm no fan of Bush, and I'm pissed this war ever took place, but dammit we made this mess, and we have to clean it up! Comparing a tragic murder in Iraq to the 6 MILLION Jews slain in the holocaust is INSANE.
If anybody meets any nutcase like this woman, please remember: they're not accurate representatives of the true liberals in America - they're a distinct minority, and INSANE.
I mean, I'm totally used to talking sustainability - I walk a lot, I ride a motorcycle, I drive old vehicles, I compost, I recycle, I turn off the sink when I brush my teeth. I know several recipes for biodiesel.
So please, just do me a favor and don't EVER lump me in with the true moonbats - they ARE OUT THERE AND THEY'RE SCARY!
