    Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and they work as advertised.

    All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

    Joe takes his morning shower. Reaching for his shampoo, the bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting the air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

    Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get workers' compensation or unemployment checks because some liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

    It's noon time. Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

    Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

    Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to his dad's. His car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still be sitting in the dark.)

    He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.

    He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn’t tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.) Joe agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I’m a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have.”

    Joe will give this post a thumbs-down, because gullible liberals believed in science, and used it to create the technology to do so.

    President Clinton's tenure was characterized by economic prosperity and financial deregulation, which in many ways set the stage for the excesses of recent years. Among his biggest strokes of free-wheeling capitalism was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, a cornerstone of Depression-era regulation. He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 Clinton loosened housing rules by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods. It is the subject of heated political and scholarly debate whether any of these moves are to blame for our troubles, but they certainly played a role in creating a permissive lending environment.

    The liberal has a stage upon which to act, move because the sons of conservatives secured freedom with the sacrifice of their lives.

    Please. It couldn't be good because someone thought and fought for good standards? It had to be a liberal?

    I think the leftists believe that all conservatives are of the establishment ilk who believe in an aristocratic structure where the masses as so much cattle.

    Silly leftists don't understand real Americans.

    Of course the leftists agree that the masses are cattle, they just think the aristocrats should take care better care of their cattle.

    If this is what liberals think...God help us...
    My parents (RIP) voted Democrat all their lives because they were told Democrats looked out for Hispanics.
    The Dems did nothing for them but this is what they believed. They were poor all their lives and died poor.
    The real democratic plan... keep them depending on government.
    No matter how much I lectured them, the mentality was so ingrained, it was fruitless to try and change their minds.

    Did you cut the part out that mentioned Joe got his ribs kicked in and then his head cut off because the liberals are creating divisiveness between races and religions? How about the part where Joe is asked to go along with his 15 year old son having a sex change? How about ol Joe wondering if there arent some pervs in the bathroom with his daughter claiming to be transgender? How about ol Joe having to pay more for groceries because his kids need something to eat after school because they cant stomach Michael Obamas idea of school lunches. How about Ol Joe stopping to help car crash victims and wondering if he got aids because of the liberals giving it such a good incubation and are the primary carriers? How about ol Joe who never became ol Joe because he was aborted when he was young Joe or because of any number of eugenics programs now or in the past? Poor ol Joe has to pay for Julios medical care and his whole families welfare. Ol Joe went in for a good education and came out with the communist brain wash and does not like the constitution and calls the founding fathers of the nation terrorists. Yeah the liberals have done the country a lot of good.

    Well said... their whole agenda is hideous.
    It breaks my heart how the sheep are being led to slaughter.

    My post was about thumbing down on a website. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, was an atheist.

    Suck on that.

    If you look at the election map, the Dems picked up the left and right coasts and a spot
    here and there within the country. One of the Dem Sen was talking about someone
    Trump picked was out of mainstream thinking the other day, and it made me laugh. How
    does a left or right coast liberal know what mainstream thinking is since they managed to
    lose almost all of the voters in the center of the country? They know what they themselves
    think and since they only rub shoulders with those that agree with them, they must have a
    high opinion of themselves to think only those that agree with them are mainstream.

    Would you say that the 4 million Texans who voted for Clinton are more left coast or right coast?
