OK here's a rational response. Of course we don't want riots here. We look at the same situations and have diametrically opposed political rationalizations for those views. Some say the internet polarizes us even more, rather than enhance us with its diversity of information.
I'm actually conceeding that I'm willing to look at your view that all the trouble we're in is still the result of previous Republican policies. I look at that viewpoint, and then all the information I've gleaned tells me unequivocally that is not totally the case.
However, I should try harder to respect and understand your outlook; but us conservatives have been astounded at the liberal mentality. We're saying, "It doesn't make sense."
So if you're a true liberal, who understands we're in opposite endzones; isn't it you that should be the first to make attempts to meet in the middle?
Your last link was so interesting, did you read the comments? That place could have been a mirror of this one. Opposing views ad infinitum.
I honestly feel ashamed sometimes that I blast you; but you have said you're not made of glass, as we all have seen. And the reason is that you are a veteran. You of all people should get respect, even if you are as left as you indicate.
