The large heavily populated Metro areas of the State are dominated by emotional adolescents in the bodies of adults. I say this because my liberal friends say they will vote for Jerry Brown because of narrow, emotional, social issues and/or blind obeisance to the letter "D."
If I say, "Jerry Brown empowered the unions to trash the state's finances and is completely dependent upon them for his election support" they say "Yes, but he's for a Woman's Right to Choose!"
If I say, "Jerry Brown wants to pass the Cap and Trade bill that will cost an estimated 1,000,00 California jobs," they say "Yes, but he loves the Environment."
If I say, "Jerry Brown trashed the judiciary system and as governor his pro-criminal policies led to an explosion in crime rates. He says he favors the same policies still!," they say "Yes, but he supports a Woman's Right to Choose."
They cling to these statements over and over like a drowning man clutches at a straw - it doesn't matter how many facts I hit them with, or how many holes I can point out in their arguments, it falls back to emotional positions. Oh, and that Meg Whitman's a bitch and they don't like her and she's an icky Republican.
The other day, I read an article which said the global warming bunch of scientists are worried that the earth's drying out.... One could say to a lefty here in California "You're drying out the WHOLE Central Valley which feeds about 30% of this country because of one little FISH which thrives elsewhere so why have you turned off the water?" They'll come back with "We're for the environment!" (implying Conservatives just love filthy oceans and bad air, as usual). Because of this fish, jobs have been lost, a huge amount of homes have foreclosed in that area, the economies have suffered in those towns in that area (less taxes for the State) and we have a lot less food for the country because "We are for the environment!" Don't you wonder at the ridiculous little phrases of the Left and how so many of them actually don't THINK them through? I sure do. Or, do they think them through but have an agenda..........which........WHAT, exactly?
