  •  My husband grew up there... (1+ / 0-)

    ...and my mother-in-law still lives there (Leawood).  She's somewhat progressive and she and I can have a decent, well-informed discussion about things that are going on in this country today (BTW, she LOATHES Brownback)...

    Her son (my husband), however, has turned into this gun-toting reactionary (he bristles at the tea bagger label, however) who thinks that everyone in Washington needs to be voted out so that the citizen legislator can make things right again (what's even worse is that most of the folks that he works with and those we socialize with agree)...

    They tolerate me as the "token liberal" with the way-out in the middle of the NV desert has only made me more liberal (not less), and I've found a small group of like-minded individuals who are keeping me sane.  

    Thank Goddess.
