So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Pounding my head on the wall

This year is sooooo going to suck. Elections and all. As a journalist and general artsy-type person, most of my friends are liberal intellectuals.

*sigh*

Twice in the past two days, I've gotten into political discussions/debates with two of my best friends.

*double sigh*

I believe the one today started when he said that the reason he is having a hard time finding a job is because the government isn't doing more to keep us out of a recession. That was when my head started spinning around and steam began shooting out of my ears.

And, I need to learn to just say. Sorry to hear you think that. Do you like pink carnations or red roses better? Instead, we spent about 75 minutes debating all those topics that Dems/Repubs disagree on.

*sigh*

I should have been writing during that time instead. It definitely would have been more productive. I'd NOT have this headache and I might be farther along in my work. I didn't persuade him to change his mind about anything any more than he persuaded me to chagne my mind.

    I can so relate to this, AoM. It really feels like I'm surrounded by liberals, and I'm never the one to initiate the conversation. It's hard not to jump in when someone says something inflammatory and untrue. So many people are devoid of facts. I've chosen to cool my heels a bit, but it's always a challenge.

    Alrighty then... this makes two conservatives I'm never allowed to discuss politics with again.
