Conservatives say the darndest things

A couple weeks ago, a friend posted a link on Facebook to an article that caught my eye. I wrote a post about my thoughts on that subject here.

What I left out of that post -- for word count purposes and to keep the post focused -- was the second thing my Conservative Friend said, which didn't sit well with me.

"A 16 year old with more love and understand of this country and its true values than every Democrat combined."

This particular friend is former military, extremely patriotic to the point of nationalism, and hate's Obama with a passion.  I don't know if he meant every Democrat in Congress, every elected official at any level or any person who affiliates with Democratic Party.  In any of those cases, that's a very board brush to stroke with and one of the reasons I generally distance myself from people like that.

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
