One thing that pisses off every liberal.   The truth.
Well, every once in a rare while libs like the truth, if it advances their agenda.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

101.  Germany attacked Pearl Harbor.

This list is dumb.  This is what happens when DUmmies try to be insightful/smart/witty.  The end result is a huge pile of poo that makes no sense.

I asked that at my trivia show the other night...according to John Belushi, who bombed Pearl Harbor? Nobody got the joke.

That's the one thing that's always puzzled me about the left. They must put everyone in little boxes and when somone has the audacity to choose not to live the way they think they're supposed to, they become anxious and insecure which manifests itself in anger & hate.

Blacks must believe the right is the enemy, they must feel victimized & helpless. They must believe only the government (Democrats) are compassionate enough to help them. They must feel the only way they can get ahead is through government set asides that get them into colleges or jobs because of the color of their skin. A black person who makes it on his own must be some kind of minstrel or "house negro" of the right. Because they can't see past color they are incapable of understanding that we respect people because of the content of their character. The irony of this situation is, if we don't like 0bama, object to his policies & won't vote for him we're racists but if we like Herman Cain, think he's incredibly intelligent, like his policies and would vote for him, we're racists merely voting for our "token" black.

All women must be pro abortion, believe they've been subjugated by men and be resentful because of said inequality. We must believe women earn less than men because men run the world and think women aren't worth as much. We must believe Margaret Sanger was  a saint. We must all want more from life than staying home and taking care of our children but that if we choose to have children we're entitled to time off with no repercussions, day care subsidies, free after school programs and we're owed more than men because we work outside the home while having a womb. Those of us that choose to be home are mindless, Stepford Wives who allow men to run our lives.

Gays must think & believe certain things, so should Christians & conservatives. Kinda makes you realize who the real slaves are.

Cindie

And they then scratch their heads as to why we liken them to the old USSR.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

58. The Founding Fathers did not free the slaves.
59. The Revolution was NOT fought over slavery.
60. Paul Revere warned the Americans, NOT the British.
94. Democrats will be working hard to bring jobs to Americans, while the Republicans tea bag each other in the middle of the aisles.
95. Voter disenfranchisement is immoral and un-American, that’s why Republicans do it.
96. Republicans would let your house burn down unless you pay them to put it out.
97. Democrats want to take care of the sick. Republicans take their credit cards and then deny them medical attention.
98. Republicans say teachers are union thugs, then proceed to rape and mug the entire middle class on behalf of corporations.
99. Republicans think rape isn’t a crime, but miscarriages are.
100. Republicans are idiots and arguing with them is a waste of time!
WTF is wrong with these people?

I was rendered speechless by this excerpt, BD. 

No. 100 is particularly insightful isn't it?  A watertight argument if I've ever seen one.

Long post ahead, as I address some of the points on that asinine list:
"2. Jesus healed the sick and helped the poor, for free."
He did that of His own free will, not because the government forced Him to do it. btw, here's a fact to
irritate a Democrat/ liberal with: Statistics have shown that conservatives give much more generously to the needy than liberals do.

"9. The Earth is round."
Um, okay, when have Republicans ever disputed this, and why would it irritate them to hear it?

"21. The Presidents’ full name is Barack Hussein Obama and he was born in the United States of America."
For someone who wrote this list to claim that Republicans are stupid, here he made a couple grammatical errors of the sort that an average third grader would be able to avoid making (It should read "The president's full name is...").

"25. Jesus was a liberal."
No, He wasn't, neither was He really a conservative. He espoused no political platform, and both the conservative Pharisees and the liberal Sadducees wanted Him dead.

"27. Tea parties are for little girls."
How very mature and intelligent of you to say! Would you say that of the Boston Tea Party, which the Tea Party movement gets its name from?

"28. Public schools educate all children; private schools are for indoctrinating children."
The only things public schools "Educate" children on are sex ed, self- esteem, and "Social justice," hence why a lot of kids who graduate from public high schools can barely read if they can read at all and have trouble with basic math, yet are pros at putting condoms on cucumbers and whining about how "The system" is "Keeping them down." Private schools hold kids to much higher standards of discipline and academic performance, and parents are able to play a much greater role in them than in public schools, where the only authority comes from the teacher's unions. Children are also much more at risk of being molested by a public school teacher than by a private school teacher, or a priest/ minister for that matter.

"29. The Constitution is the law, NOT the Bible."
Yet it was written by men who believed in the Bible.

"30. Sharia law doesn’t exist in America."
Not at the moment, no (Thank God), but radical Muslim activists are eager to change that, and spineless, traitorous liberal politicians will help it happen out of fear of being accused of racism if they don't. In Britain (Which has long been kind of a "Canary in the coalmine" early warning system of what can happen to America if we allow the far left to gain too much control), Muslims are rapidly gaining control, demanding that their neighborhoods be Muslim- only areas, and demanding that they be allowed to govern said areas through sharia law.

"31. The President is NOT a Muslim."
Perhaps not, but his sympathies lie heavily with Muslims, at the expense of every other group. btw, you again make one of the grammar mistakes you made for post #21, of the sort that an average child would be able to avoid, especially if said child were educated in a private school.

"33. Fox News isn’t real news, it’s just a racist, sexist, hateful, right-wing propaganda machine."
Yet liberals like you believe Rolling Stone Magazine and 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' are valid, respectable media outlets of real news.

"41. Health care is a right, not a product."
Funny, I don't see the right to free health care anywhere in the Constitution.

"45. Barack Obama ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden. It took him two and half years to do what Bush couldn’t do in eight."
First, he did so using the sorts of intelligence methods first applied during the Bush Administration, which liberals like you loved complaining about. Second, after Obama learned about where bin Laden was located, it took him almost a day to give the order to move in on him, enough time for Obama to sleep on it and play a few relaxing games of golf, which Obama has shown time and time again that he considers to be a far better use of his time than actually doing his job.

"46. Waterboarding IS torture."
No, it is not. When properly administered (With the subject's vital signs being monitored by a doctor), the subject is in no physical danger, though they are made to believe they are. It's more of a psychological means of interrogation than a physical means, thus it is not torture. It has also provided information that has helped thwart several planned terrorist attacks against America, such as a plot to bomb the Brooklyn Bridge.

"48. Republicans invaded Iraq for oil, so Iraq should be allowed to invade Texas to get it back."
Okay, here you are openly calling for a foreign nation to invade America. That constitutes treason. Had you been around during the early days of our country, those founding fathers that you claim are all such devout liberals would have had you tarred and feathered for saying that, and that's if they were feeling merciful.

"49. Separation of church and state is in the Constitution, it’s called the First Amendment."
No, it is not. The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which ignorant liberals like you claim calls for separation of church and state, simply meant that Congress cannot establish an official, mandatory state religion (i.e. The Church of England). The First Amendment also says that there is to be no "Prohibiting the free exercise thereof," which is what you liberals constantly desire to do with your efforts to silence any public expression of the Christian faith. The term "separation of church and state" was taken from a letter that Jefferson wrote to a group of Baptists (Then a religious minority in America) to assure them that the government will not meddle in their church's affairs, which ironically is exactly what Obama is doing with his requirement in the health care bill that religious employers must supply their employees with free birth control. Jefferson never intended for it to be used the other way around, to silence public religious expression the way liberals like you want to do.
"50. Muslims are protected by the Constitution, just as much as Christians."
We never said they aren't, as long as they are American citizens.

"51. Barack Obama is the first African-American President, get over it."
Wrong! Obama is not an African- American; He is of mixed race, born of a white mother and a father who has far more Arabic blood in him than African. In either case, we simply feel he is an idiot who has proven to be an incredibly poor president, our dislike of him has nothing to do with race.

"52. The Oval Office is NOT a “whites only” office."
We never said it was. I wouldn't mind seeing Allen West in the Oval Office some day.

"53. America is a nation of immigrants, therefore we are all anchor babies."
Most of our ancestors who came here from other countries did so legally. That's the difference.

"58. The Founding Fathers did not free the slaves.
 59. The Revolution was NOT fought over slavery.
 60. Paul Revere warned the Americans, NOT the British."
Okay, what the hell are you talking about with these? None of these have ever been disputed by conservatives/ Republicans. I don't get what point you're making, were you stoned or something when you wrote these?

"72. Labor unions built this country."
Okay, yes, labor unions did a lot of good at one time (i.e. weekends off, the end of child labor), but that was decades ago. Unions have not made any such positive contributions to society since then, they are no longer needed. That's why the people who brag about how vital unions are constantly resort to bringing up what unions did decades ago, they haven't done anything good since then. They have in fact done a good deal of harm since then, such as public sector unions holding the American public in general hostage to their demands (i.e. The Wisconsin Teacher's Unions encouraging teachers to abdicate their responsibility to teach children who had been entrusted to them, proving that they care a great deal more about money than about ensuring kids get a good education).

"74. Jesus was a Jew, not a Christian."
First, that fact has never really been disputed, and I am an aspiring minister who does not feel annoyed or irritated in the least by it. Second, if you want to find anti- Semites, try looking on the left (Though the left often tries to hide their anti- Semitism by using the euphemistic term "Zionists" when what they mean is "Jews"). Just a few days ago, black supremacist/ anti- Semite extraordinaire Louis Farrakhan, not exactly a devoted Republican, claimed that Jesus was not Jewish.

"91. Republicans have their own terrorists, just look up Timothy McVeigh."
First, McVeigh was not much of a conservative, based on his own writings. Second, Democrats/ liberals have a whole boatload of terrorists and other such extremists, such as the Unabomber and Bill Ayers. Third, conservatives are quick to condemn and distance themselves from the fringe psychos on their side. Liberals, in contrast, view the fringe psychos on their own side as brave heroes "Sticking it to the man" or "Standing up for social justice" or some crap like that.

"99. Republicans think rape isn’t a crime, but miscarriages are."
Republicans have never said either of those things. That is an inexcusable libel.
I think that takes care of it.

I beg to disagree with one of you conclusions.
Jesus was far more of a conservative in that he believed in and espoused individual salvation.
If he was liberal he would have espoused collective salvation.

Yeah, and we all know none of them "gangstas" carry guns, right? Even if they don't just hold 'em sidewise so they can't hit the broad side of a barn! They don't have any!
