      We all are to degrees liberal, it like front and back.

      Why be lopsided one way or the other?

      If you really want me to start eradicating conservative beliefs, I can. But it's really just shooting fish in a barrel.

        No, I just find it strange that people ask me to "tone it down", "maybe if you weren't so harsh, you would get your point across better"...stuff like that.

        But I never see these same people reprimand anyone else.
        It's just curious.

        And I'm starting to wonder if it's because I'm female? And it's usually  females doing the reprimanding!

        It's just odd, is all.

            No--I'm just wondering why no one ever asks a man to tone it down?

            Well, Right-wing women don't ask each other to tone it down either....only me!

            And their rants are personal.

      Maybe because it is easier to complain about someone than it is to look in the mirror?

    Because if you can't discuss the idea, you can attack the person.  Just like Rush the drug addict.

      Or, they might be the kind of female misogynists I notice....they want you to be quite and demure....like a good wifey!

      But--you are most likely on target GN.
