  •  Here's a woman that no long believes the GOP (12+ / 0-)

    She is/was a Bill O'Reilly fan that didn't believe in Global Warming.  She hated the discussion about Global Warming.

    Then she saw Chasing Ice.

    She was in tears after watching the movie, and is now apologizing to everyone she kicked out of her house for talking about Global Warming.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

    •  I applaud her honesty and bravery. Hard to admit (9+ / 0-)

      When you're wrong; doubly to do so publicly.  

      Damn there's a lot of minds to change though.

      •  a lot of our (7+ / 0-)

        problems within our society and especially the 'culture wars' and the intractable belief's we refuse to let go of stem from not being able to admit that we have been had. Who wants to admit that they have been bamboozled and played by using fear, ignorance, hatred and the worst instinct's of humans passed off as values.

        My conservative son during the Bush regime's torture and war crimes, finally had to admit and apologize for supporting such inhumanity and viscousness. He now is able to look at and talk about  issues like single payer health care, and economic inequity,  our growing security state without regurgitating the ugly hateful fearful ignorant reality perpetuated of the RW propagandists.

        He still has a way to go but he took the first step which was refuting the hate, bigotry, ignorance and insanity of the demagogues of the RW. He also had to let go of his reactionary stances against 'you liberals...'. He said the other day maybe it's time 'you liberals' got a chance to fix this mess.
