Confront the average progressive liberal on matters of politics and I think you'll be surprised! Liberals and conservatives write about each other all the time. Especially in the blogs which breed a new brand of unflappability I won't even go into.
However, for the sake of clarity, I'm speaking of eye to eye contact. Confront a liberal progressive with, "...well, we have to pass it so we can see what's in it." A, now, infamous quote by Nancy Pelosi.
Know what you're gonna see? The majority of the time you'll see eyes glaze over and an attempt to deflect the subject or outright change the subject. Ya see they were born with the same common sense everyone else has but, and sadly, it was educated out of them in many cases. It also has a lot to do with pride and the more education they have ammassed the the less tendency to admit they've done something horribly stupid in their support for an idiot who'd make such a statement.
Confront the average promoter of the global warming hoax/scam with the actual scientific and anecdotal facts of the matter and you'll see the same thing. Oddly enough in some cases you'll get that all-knowing, very sympathetic and condescending look and hear something about the documentation is all there...yada,yada,yada!
Never mind the fact that the "hole in the ozone layer hoax" which helped get the ball rolling on the larger global warming hoax has been disproven by the simple act of examining the molecular weights of the chemicals involved. Never mind the fact that the majority of the scientific protocols used to determine the theory have been called into serious question and lastly,(er...laughably) Al Gore is nowhere to be seen right now! And yet, unflappably, there are still those die-hard few who claim, while shivering in record cold, that we are suffering from global warming!
These silly goof balls have latched on to a belief system and in their eminant, highly educated wisdom, are going to uphold their pride and stick to it!
Kind of like that last lemming who follows those tens of thousands over the cliff knowing what the end will be!
