1. 100. Republicans are idiots and arguing with them is a waste of time!

It's like trying to teach a pig to sing.

5. Yeah, but the pig is probably time better spent.

 

Great idea for a new hobby - stop arguing with Republicans, teach pigs to sing, instead.

8. I know what you mean

But they think if you don't engage then you've recognized that they are right which couldn't be further from the truth.

15. I won't argue with them. I will tell them that 1% of the U.S. controls 40% of

 

its wealth and 10% control 80% and conclude my communication with them by saying, "You do the math."

2. These are great

I can already see my republican friends turning red because they didn't know half of that. They worship Reagan like a god when in fact Reagan would have been a liberal in today's political community. Kind of demonstrates our hug shift to the right doesn't it?

3. problem is

they're so brainwashed, they won't believe you.

Some are truly stupid, some are willfully stupid (holding fast to their beliefs no matter the contrary evidence), and most are hopeless cases!

I save my breath and my blood pressure now and simply ignore them. The USA is Rome now with Visigoths are just over the horizon.

I don't get angry talking to people I disagree with, unless I realize they are right.

13. ???????????????????????????

yes, blood pressure can rise when dealing with the futile task of dealing with repuke ignorance. So I spare myself the grief.

What part of that didn't you get?!

14. I guess we are just different personalities.

 

I like to be around ignorant people, and when they (rarely) aren't ignorant, I like to test my beliefs to see if they make sense.

19. I'm with you.

I can't stand ignorance, especially willful ignorance. And, I really despise it when people slurp up crap without even bothering to question it's veracity, let alone do their homework and check the facts themselves.

I really have neglected him.

6. At a bar in Tn.

Some guy at the bar, very representative of the populace here:

Obama on TeeVee speaking....
Patron:" yeah, we need to re-elect that idiot."
Me: "No, we need mittens to represent us."
No more said...

Sadly, to me, I have to vote with my nose held and hope for some Progressive legislation during the "lame duck" term....

This is not Democracy.

7. I'm sick of phrase 55.

I could throw up every time I hear the term "god-particle". It's the "Higgs-boson" goddammit! Just because some lame-ass journalist made up a word, religion and science are now getting intermixed where they shouldn't be.

10. That's a great list.


Would like to add at least one from Bill Maher:

"There are two things Republicans can't stand -- Being called a "racist" . . . . . . . and Black people."

11. I work at a highly conservative firm

and whenever I bring up any of those, my co-worker's response is always, "nuh-uh."

In fact, I've also been informed that the revolutionary war was NOT the American colonies revolting against British rule, it was the United States, led by the conservative "Founding Fathers" stopping an invasion by the British.

To put it most discreetly, these people are all idiots who don't have even a semblance of a clue.

18. The War of Northern Aggression..

The War Between the States is now considered to be too left wing in Republican circles..

When I was growing up there were still people referring to it as The Recent Unpleasantness..

20. "The War of Northern Aggression" ignores a few petty details, such as

 

exactly what General P.G.T. Beauregard did with regard to Fort Sumter. Oh wait, maybe those re-supply ships heading towards Fort Sumter really were Northern Aggressors

74. Jesus was a Jew, not a Christian.

76. Inside every Republican is a Klansman or a Nazi waiting to bloom.
