Are you frustrated with the direction this country is headed?
Do you think this administration is way out in left field? Do you get tired of liberals accusing you of racism simply because you disagree with our president? Are you ready to see some housecleaning happen in congress this November?

Stop by the Conservative Parenting board and take a deep breath of fresh air! Discuss politics, world and local news, religion, and fluffy fun with like-minded people. It is a safe haven for you to discuss your worldview without fear of a backlash of debate. We hope to see you there soon!

LOL! I've wondered why that one is even an available option. I don't let my 3 y/ o roll her eyes at me. ;-)

Everyone here *thinks* they own the moral high ground. It's pathetic to only see it when convenient. That's what is WRONG.

There used to be baiting CL's over at one of the other political boards, but that was taken care of quite a while ago - now the

Um, no, I can have long civilized conversations anywhere but when people bring their bad day, for whatever reason, to any conversation, it isn't going to stay civilized for long.

So you don't approve and the majority of your post is just your observation of human behavior which you don't condone. Ok. I get it.

"If I say "I find such-and-such to be an unhealthy policy" that's a statement about an issue. If the reply is "oh, well, you people-in-that-group are all (pick a perjorative)" they have then made a huge and angry generalization. Sometimes they just go for the personal, period "you must be a..."

That tells me *nothing* about a political point of view. That tells me "wow, this person is incapable or unwilling to debate like an adult" and/or "hmm, issues much?"

I agree.

At the very least, I got a chuckle out of the "how dare you" attitude about Janet supposedly lumping all liberals into one pot and then for someone to "prove" that conservatives are racists by posting a random picture that not only looks edited but could very well be a libertarian, independent or democrat at some random rally. Now if that doesn't give Janet's supposed blanket statement merit, I don't know what does. I figure if you are the exception to the rule, simply be proud of that.

Janet, I know you didn't plan the response you got from the non conservative sect but it's done two great things that I can see right off...it's given conservatives that are lurking here affirmation that they DO need that safe haven and the constant conversation down here keeps the ad bumped up to the top...you might not get people to click an invite in here but you add 40+ replies to it and people feel driven to click it. And you thought your title was the hook ;)

Yes and the man denies taping anything on the sign, nor letting anyone else tape anything on it. And short of someone supplying a video of him writing it and taping it on there, there's no proof that he's lying about that. And yes, I know that the same site tried to prove that the sign was unedited but an amateur is a far cry from a professional when it comes to editing. Nevermind that the tea party has continually denounced racism...or that it's made up of democrats, independents, libertarians etc. as well as republicans. Playing along with you, let's say the guy in the picture is a flaming conservative that believes that all blacks should be hung because of their color. Does that make all men racists? Does that make all whites racists? Does that make all guys named Dale racists? So why does that make all tea party people racist? Why does that give credence to the claim that conservatives are racists?

Janet never claimed that all liberals think that conservatives are racists and I think most everyone here doesn't have a belief that the tea party is made up of racists. One would hope that there are intelligent people here that realize that a handful of racists will always pop out in any large group..just like any group will have a handful of crazies.
