Overheard at Table 1: Olive Garden to go...

While I was waiting to pick up my order from Olive Garden today, I heard two guys having an argument in the cars next to me.  I rolled down my window, thinking, 'Geez is this another fight I'm going to have to try to stop?' and one guy was out of his car talking to another guy still in his, and he was saying, "I wanna be able to go into a restaurant and sit down and eat my fuckin meal and I can't believe all these liberals want to keep everyone from working and I've worked all my life and I've lived in California and I've lived in Texas and I never asked for no goddam handout and I don't want nothin from those Democrat ... SOCIALISTS!"

And it never ceases to amaze me how ignorant Americans are.  If Americans knew anything - ANYTHING - about the world, culture, politics, economics, and the like, they would know that Democrats are NOT SOCIALISTS!!!!

But the fact that so many think that Democrats ARE Socialists is further proof - concrete undeniable proof  - that Right Wing propaganda is not only effective, but is ubiquitous.


  1. I find it amazing that people are so comfortable in their ignorance.
