Why I don't like to argue politics

I know, hard to believe I don't like to argue politics given where most of my posts on the crack bored live.

I can handle it on the crack bored because there isn't the immediacy. People don't see the disgusted look on my face when they say something extremely stupid. I tend to be liberal and vote for Democrats. Although that's not solid. I tend not to vote conservative or ultra-liberal because of the idiotic arguments that spew forth from their mouths.

I have no problems with a difference of opinion. But I get really really irritated when someone spews incorrect facts. For instance, people who say that global warming doesn't exist. We can argue to the cause or if anything should be done about it or what should be done and whether or not it needs to make economic sense and if so what is the proper economic weight to give to the environment compared to jobs. But when someone says average temperatures are not higher than they were 10 and 20 years ago, I throw up my hands. And I start to think they are stupid.

And I hate talking to stupid people. Which is why I hate arguing politics. Cause then I find out who is stupid.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
