Debating Liberals

It’s an exercise in futility!

Over the past several days, I have found myself attempting to reason with a couple of people on Facebook.  One of these was a “friend” of mine who insists that we should give Obama a chance….after all, he’s only been in office for 15 months <insert sarcastic snort here> Secondly, I was  arguing religion and politics with some socialist European clown on a friend’s page.

Why do I do this to myself?  I have a blurb on my page that says “Try being informed instead of just opinionated”….I really shouldn’t even attempt to engage these people because where I do a substantial amount of reading on any given subject before I form an opinion…it’s clear that they do not.  They base every opinion they have solely on “feelings”…well that’s just swell….but you really have to leave your “feelings” at the door if you want to have an honest discussion with someone about an issue.

So at the end of the day, I find myself either bored because it’s like playing with a bug or I’m banging my head on my desk because I can’t believe people are so blind to what’s going on around them.

I think my new strategy may have to be to just delete any stupid comments I see show up on my page so that I avoid the temptation to engage in a battle of wits with unarmed opponents.

Just sayin’
