    Was Lurking On DemocraticUnderground for About An Hour...

    Pretty mind boggling the way some of these people think. And not surprisingly, about one-in-five of their threads are related to gun control.

    If you can stomach it, I recommend lurking there for a little bit. It's insane to watch them post the same stories we do, yet from such a different perspective that I will never understand.

    Sorry if this violates #11 at all, I realized right after I posted it I might have done a no-no.

    I'll hit it occasionally for some entertainment. Its great for a laugh.

    It can be depressing to see how clueless about reality some folks are though and how those with depraved minds view the world.

    You're a brave, brave man.

    All I have to do is read my FB page occasionally to get the same effect. I wish I could pick my friends and relatives.

    Don't see why not..... I have pretty much disowned a sister, haven't had contact with her in about 3 years and don't care to ever again.

    This thread mad me curious, and now I see why curiosity killed the cat!

    What world do these people live in?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    As do I. One of my sisters is a yuppie middle-school principal. The kind that sends kids homes for drawing pictures of guns. A simple 5 minute conversation with her will leave me trying to claw my brain out. I really do have to limit my exposure.

    I would think as long as we focus on the 2A aspect we'd be okay.

    I think it's very beneficial to understand your opponent's line of thinking in order to formulate your responses in a way that resonates with them.

    Generally yes. But in the case of most progressives, I really don't think there is much thinking at all going on with them. You can't reason emotion and prejudice.

    You went there and got out alive?

    I went there once and felt like I was in a room of very angry spitting cobras.

    I guess if you can stomach it...."know your enemies" type of thing.....but don't eat first and take a "vomit bag".

    It is so hard to believe that those people and us live in the same country.

    They've got "facts" alright.

    It's just that their facts aint the same as my facts.
