I don't live in a cocoon at all.  I live in a space with many many people of all types and opinions.  I have a LOT of liberal friends, which I'm guessing few here would claim to have.  They are NOT awful people at all.  Most of the country is well meaning and well intentioned.

The extreme fringes get the media attention disproportionate to reality.  And of course the media stoke this along with the extreme web sites that do not reflect mainstream America, at all.  We went on a walk today, couple of miles, folks were out smiling and nodding and saying hello and helping others out when needed.  The city is out paving a major intersection right now, no clue why they did it midday, and probably some drivers were expleting.

He thinks the opposition is the liberal elitists he drinks wine and goes to garden parties with.

I don't view people as "the opposition" other than t he freaks at the extremes, who fortunately are VERY few in numbers.

This site is an interesting window into how some on the far far far right "think".  Fortunately, they are rare beings who live in a fantasy world.

One of the most disgusting thing one person can do to another. A guy spit on me one time but he didn't spit for quite awhile after that I made sure of it.

Jesse Jackson bragged about spitting in white peoples food.

The link is for you Cincy since I know your're going to doubt it or argue about it.

I'd love to see your face in another 10-20 years when the country turns into the train wreck that rational people are predicting and expecting.

I've seen people predicting gloom and doom in the next 10 or 20 years for most of my life.

And if it happens, it's beyond my ability to influence anyway.  I suppose I could incessantly WHINE on line about something that is very unlikely.

We'll all be dead of climate change by then anyway.

And given where we've evolved to now, they've been right.  Are you expecting a reversal of some sort?

I suppose I could incessantly WHINE on line about something that is very unlikely.

There's that cocoon again.  What was "unlikely" 20 years ago has already happened.  Short of the 2nd coming, our degradation already has a head of steam.

We'll all be dead of climate change by then anyway.

This earth will be ended by its Creator.  Us piss ants have nothing to say (or do) about it.

Well, I'll let y'all fight the good fight here.  I don't see it.

Life will go on.  The drama queens will always claim some absurdity is imminent.  I've learned to ignore them.

it should be said that the delineation is skewed in most folks opinion's, in my opinion... and in my opinion that is a fact. huff huff... 

the left has charged to the left and forcing people who've stood steady to appear far right.  it's that simple.  the concept of compromise is to adopt leftist concepts.  the 'line' has been stretched so thin that appeasing the left is to adopt concepts that would have defined you as a leftist as little as 10 years ago.  

the suspect item to me is the lefts absolute fixation on 'social issues'- meaning the engineering of society.  it is now widely supported to fly a rainbow flag on state property in demonstration of support, but... a cross? a bible? posting of the ten commandments? a statue mentioning the civil war or representing the era that has been there for a long time? .... all the while the volume of people who would support those banned items far outnumber, in this country, those demanding or rejoicing with the rainbow flag... and curiously, those same people are demanding (legislating, in some cases) a dissolution of the electoral college/votes and calling for popular vote... the lack of consistency is bewildering... meanwhile, freakin' BOTH can exist and should in a country with law secured by the blind lady... 

there is an assault on American Tradition and a rewrite of our history taking place- and to what ends?  it's being touted as some sort of liberation or freedom from oppression, as if the gov't is the one who established our traditions, customs, and 'contract with society'.  

"no law written by man which contradicts the laws of nature will endure the test of time".   We have issues far more damning than whether a gay marriage is recognized... we have concerns far beyond whether a transvestite should have tax payer funded operation to alter their plumbing.  what we DO have, however, is a pretty good outline on how to govern- and which should be followed within its boundaries instead of seeking to change it- which ought to take the gov't out of social engineering altogether. 

middle ground ain't in the middle, is my position.  the middle ground is in the heartland and fly over states- and is described as conservative yet supportive of individual rights.  

the left has invested heavily in aligning the 'right' with evangelical.  it's without doubt correlated, but..... just because someone is Christian and conservative, doesn't make them racists, misogynist, homophobic, hate filled demons.... those accusations are precisely what brought us Trump.  It's why the accusations have far less impacts nowadays than before.  people are tired of being bossed around by the people they hired.  i think that is accurate from both sides, but both sides refuse to recognize their opinions might not be as widely supported as they think.

Well fine, ignore them.  Nothing wrong with that.  But it doesn't mean they are wrong.

How many genders are there now?  Absurdity, you call it?  Sure it's absurd, but it's also reality.

And more absurdities will become reality.  You're supposed to learn from this, and turn to your maker.

The end is to strip America of its underpinnings, which yes, are Christian.  There is nothing shocking or unexpected about any of this.  It has been written.  It has been told.

Why wouldn't a country founded on a Christian foundation be under attack?  Of course it is.  God would be a liar otherwise.

I believe folks hear the noise coming from a very few people and confuse that with a real significant movement of the masses.  A very few people can at times generate a lot of NOISE amplified by MSM in its struggle to get noticed.

If it bleeds, it leads.  Normalcy is not newsworthy.  So, "we" start to perceive the abnormal as being common and normal and it's not.  It's just "in the news".

So, folks see threats where they are minor in real terms and ignore threats that are real because they are commonplace.

i agree, Cincy, but I also think we're further apart than we've ever been as a people in the modern era.

What's amazing is how all the Dem candidates are pandering to the noisy far-left on Twitter.

If just one stood up as a Centrist, I'm guessing that they'd almost immediately get nearly all of the Democratic vote outside the rabid left. 

Dems are going to sit at home again if the current candidates keep pandering to the noisy Twitterists....
