I'm not in a better mood or less achy, but I'm somewhat more pissed, so maybe that'll work.
This day started with being informed that, according to that bastion of scientific research Salon, a study showed that conservatives(i.e. "Anyone not a socialist") 'only listen to propaganda, nothing that will challenge their beliefs'. Etc. Which seems to have an amen pew made of up people who think Mother Jones and MSNBC are founts of unbiased reporting. Which fits in nicely with the previous studies showing conservative have a physical brain fault, and the one that said non-leftists aren't as smart as leftists, etc.
I may have mentioned it before, but I'm Gods-damned sick of this shit. I'm sick of being told "The reason you oppose Obama is he's BLACK!", and the same about that corrupt bastard Holder. I'm sick of "You only want the border closed because you're RACIST!" I'm sick of "The reason you don't want 'accusation equals guilt of sexual assault' on campus is YOU HATE WOMEN!"
I'm sick of being told that not agreeing with the socialist line* means I'm not smart enough to know what's good for me. I'm fucking sick of being told that not rolling over for any control-freak statist who demands it means "You hate anyone who's not just like you!" Especially since it comes from people who freaking hate anyone who refuses to think and act and speak the way they demand.
No, the rant doesn't help, but I got it out. I'm now going to go outside while it's nice, sit with a book and dogs to scratch, and attempt to ignore this shit for a while.
*'Progressive' my ass. They started using that word because people realized socialism was crap, and they're still trying to hide behind it. They're socialists or communists, and they can kiss my ass.
Related, I no longer call these asshats 'liberals', because- borrowing from Michael Z. Williamson- 'I call them leftists, because there's nothing liberal about them.'
