Snoop lives in a great town Lawrence, Kansas. But it is close to being the national capitol of liberalism. Douglas County where Lawrence is located and Wyandotte County where Kansas City, Kansas is located were the only two counties to go Democrat during the last election.
However we do have a democrat Governor Kathleen Sebelius. Although I tend to dislike most democrats she is ok. Do not be surprised to hear her name rumored as a possible Vice Presidential running mate in 2008.
Lawrence.com our hometown blogs was a lively place during the elections. Ole Snoop had fun arguing with liberals particularly since I was greatly outnumbered, but that makes it fun.
Someone asked me, ARE YOU FOR REAL? And I had to laugh. So I showed this old post from law.com basically spelling out why I do not trust most liberals.
POST: The Blog, The Lonely Pea
Liberal is a hollow term, and basically I dont think anything of the term in general. People simply state that they are Liberal because they say they are open minded, flexible in their thinking and understanding of the world around them. Open to new ideas and tolerant of other cultures, thoughts and mindsets.
Being open minded is not evil but the term does not accurately describe the true mind set.
Compassionate liberalism is a scary thought.
TRUE liberals are ultimate elitist, they are only tolerant of other cultures as to tap into the meaning of them or understanding them. Like visiting the zoo and gawking at the animals.
TRUE liberals believe that their intellectual superiority and supreme understanding of the world around them entitles them to micro manage the world around them.
TRUE liberals insist on telling you why YOU should not buy from a particular store,
Where you can and cant smoke, drive a certain type of car, eat certain foods, why you should not eat meat, why YOUR kids should not play video games or watch TV. TRUE liberals throw money into the ghettos because they dont want the Negros out of the ghetto they just want to make it more comfortable for them.
TRUE liberals believe that dark children learn better when surrounded by pigment challenged individuals. Poor kids SHOULD go to public schools but THEIR kids are entitled to quality education.
TRUE liberals say if Johnny does not know that 2 plus two equals four we should get him to come to grips with his answer of five and make him feel good about it.
People throw out liberal and conservative and we automatically come to basic conclusions about what the heck its suppose to mean.
TRUE liberals will actually have a meeting to discuss the plight of the non-whites in a given community and not invite the very people they are discussing.
TRUE liberals may even have a blog, discussing cultural diversity without asking varried multi-pigmented individuals what they feel is the cultural climate of a given community.
TRUE liberals are far more racists, xenophobic, govern out of pity and are just as class centered than many so called conservatives. Yes that includes the confederate flag waving, gun rack, camouflage, and card carrying NRA, 700 club watching folks.
So the term compassionate liberalism is frankly a frightening term to me.
