    here in GA with some of my kids' friends.  They're still freaking out about Obama winning re-election.  And these guys are 20 somethings who have taken that nastiness into adulthood.  God they're scary.

      don't seem to go hand-in-hand, just like the ability to take a hard look at yourself, your beliefs, and deliver constructive criticism to oneself or even hear it from another and take it to heart. Egotism, confidence, unwarranted self esteem - all this and more fill the emotional baggage of many young conservatives.

        I've written many times how my circumstances changed drastically and my right wing sister and her extremely right wing boyfriend had to take me in.  It's all about them - every damn thing.  And they're always right - every damn time.  It's stunning in its scope of ignorance, un-self-awareness, and stupidity at swallowing whole the propaganda of Fox and hate radio.  To be given such reign to be so right on everything every single time is unbelievable.  I've gotten glimpses of it over the years - it's been the source of many an argument.  But to see it up close and personal has been an experience, and it scares the hell out of me.  I've seen first-hand what those who churn out right wing propaganda have let loose on our society, and it's not a good thing.  There's an agenda here that needs to be exposed because it's destroying us from within.  I never understood how the Germans could have been so stupid and gullible until now.  If you eat, sleep, breathe, and generally live this toxic mess, some of us can't help but fall for it hook, line, and sinker.  There has to be some really intelligent and sick and depraved people  behind all this.  There's  no longer any doubt with me.
