  • kesmarn : I think I get your point, now, b’ito!

  • BigDogMom : AdLib, that’s what I was trying to say, you stated it much better than I, they were just scared, this is all new to them…

  • escribacat : Adlib…true.

  • bitohistory : Kersman, from the book whats wrong with kansas?-? and doing union work

  • Khirad : Oh, BDM, no, I don’t have that bravery, you win! :) Agree on homework e’cat. I have no patience, you don’t have to be up on every new thing per 24 cable news. But by the time that Oct-Nov rolls around and they’re undecided? Really?

  • KQuark : bito I think those people vote on image more than reality.

  • FeedUp : Bito, yes how does a staunch repub feel know if they aren’t working now, inquiring minds want to know

  • AdLib : BDM: We should have a discussion on racism, it is literally not a black and white issue. There are people out there who are very kind people and don’t hate but are a bit ignorant and take for granted white people are better than black people. They would never be rude or insulting to a black person but in their mind, they would not think of them as equals.

  • escribacat : Repuggly neighborhood. LOL

  • kesmarn : Please elaborate, my friend b’ito!

  • escribacat : Swing voters are the types who procrastinate on their homework. Deciding who to vote for is an unpleasant chore.

  • nellie : I guess both are true. Bigotry prevents you from seeing the truth for what it is. It leads you to ignore critical thinking and evidence, leads you to make really bad decisions based on erroneous beliefs — makes you act stupid.

  • BigDogMom : Try going door to door in a Repuggly neighborhood…n ot the hood

  • bitohistory : Kesmarn , the ones that vote only pricipal and not the wallet get me

  • Khirad : bito: I don’t know if I can ever do that again… data entry for me.

  • AdLib : nellie: I see it the other way around, ignorance breeds racism.

  • BigDogMom : AdLib – They may not be outwardly predudice, they have never experience this before

  • KQuark : good analogy kes.
