1. The more artistic web designers tend to be more liberal....
In general, web design is like many other arts and the best artists are always liberals. It's just a give god gave us, lefties.

2. They're busy doing important things, don't waste resources
Maybe we should emulate them. I mean, how many trees had to get chopped down so you could read this page?

3. I don't go to them but have an answer
They have a fear of imagination other than a short vision of what the world would be like if everyone was just like them.If they had thier dream come come true then they would start on each other about who is whiter,whose familly clan was most inbread (they would call it pedagree) and pretty much be bored shitless with nothing to bitch about.
They hate art,always have and always will,so thier sites,pamplets,books,t.v.shows and all the shit they come up with look bland and unimaginative....freeper lurkers out there look to thier enemys for anything more interesting than thier small comfort zone......

4. Yeah, but rightwingers' musical skills are unmatched! (Thank god.)
Not to mention the world's finest writers, painters, sculptors, actors either come or DON'T come from the right-wing. There's no need, after all, to wonder how many right-wingers become the world's greatest scientists!

Just leave the lower "skills," like plotting to seize resources, to kill in greater numbers to the lesser evolved types......

7. I had a neighbor who was an ex-army, evangelistic, homophobic,
"master of the house" sort of right-winger. He wouldn't allow any flowers to be grown in his yard, and he wouldn't allow his female children to learn an instrument or take dancing lessons, because he believed that beautiful things, graceful movements, etc., were "leftist" and would contaminate his children. Could the ugly sites be an extension of this philosophy? i.e. "We're too intellectual and macho to care about aesthetics."

14. Stupendous! He fits right in. Love the Delay and Pouting Jeb, too.
Without their handsomeness, however, they'd still have their great minds!

10. the things on the RW websites like Freerepublic.com that I find hard to
look at are those nasty doctored images on them that make fun of democrats and others that they don't agree with... I have a sense of humor but alot of those doctored images are just in very bad taste...and it annoys me alot.

13. I'll tell you why. I'm an interface designer.
To do interface design, you have to put yourself in the shoes of the visitor and try to see the interface as they see it.

Right-wing assholes are incapable of seeing things from anyone else's perspective.

Ta-da.
