    Flag as inappropriateI am 57 years old. I've informed my wife that when the Revolution begins I will take up my arms against the morons that elected obama. This is now their greatest fear, taking away our guns will give them security and freedom destroy the rest of our Constitution and America.

    •  The cons (stands for consistent, conservative, (8+ / 0-)

      convict, conniver, etc.) have binary brains. Everything comes in pairs, two by two, but they are opposites and at no point reconcile or unify. The result is stasis--i.e. no action. (Another reason why "party of no" is an apt moniker).

      Since reality doesn't come in pairs but is much more diverse, the cons' perceptions are obviously often in error and that, I think, is what makes them insecure. Faulty perceptions are upsetting, but all the more reason to retreat into a corner. And a cornered critter is dangerous.

      Cons respond to prompts. Their primary modes of behavior are imitation and repetition. Imitation introduces new behaviors into their repertoirs and repetition hardens them into habit. That is why it is important to restrict what they see, lest they be prompted to imitate "bad" behavior. Is also why what they hear is less important. Repeating bad words is less significant than imitating bad acts. Images are more important than sounds.

      Images of Obama being honored in public are devastating to the cons. Five years of verbiage haven't been able to reverse that!

    •  You will find that Unitarian Universalist (9+ / 0-)

      congregations generally have great religious education programs (Sunday School).  Sierra will have fun and develop respect for all people, just like you have.

      Now you won't find the Bible quoted as much, but other wisdom mixed in.  You will find values sought, and pathways, be they Christian, Buddhist, Pagan, Jewish, etc. available to reach goals.  Usually there are lots of chances to blend your beliefs with actions.  Support too.  UU's generally love to sing too!

      To see if there is a church near you, go to the Unitarian Universalist website, and under UU Directory, the Find a Church section.  Even if it doesn't stick, you will have given yourself a breather.  Plus if it's not right for you, a talk with the minister will help you clarify where you might be most comfortable.  

      Sorry you had to experience this -  A good Sunday AM experience can set one up for the week, with positive vibes --- or leave you with a headache.  Good that you knew the difference.

      I attend one now in FL - after choosing not to go to church for several years because they ALL seemed so political in our GOP city.
