    Default YOU might be a liberal.......GDG

    With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, you just might be a liberal if...
    * You're sure the Constitution explicitly guarantees the right to abortion and gay marriage, but not the right to own a handgun.
    * You think Dan Quayle is the dumbest Vice-President we ever had because he believed a flash card that misspelled "potato," but think Obama is a genius despite the fact he believes we have more than 57 states.
    * You'd be more upset about your favorite candidate being endorsed by the NRA than the Communist Party.
    * You think the same criminals who use guns in the commission of a crime will just hand them over to comply with the law if guns are made illegal.
    * You know that 86% of all income taxes are paid by the top 25% of income earners and you still feel that the rich "aren't paying their fair share of the taxes."
    * You put a higher priority on oil pipelines possibly inconveniencing a few caribou than you do on lowering the price of gas for everyone in the country by drilling ANWR.
    * You're worried that Osama Bin Laden might not get a fair trial if we capture him, but want George Bush thrown in prison for being too zealous in protecting us from Al-Qaeda.
    * You get infuriated when you hear about the CEO of a Fortune 500 company making tens of millions of dollars, but don't see a problem with an actor, basketball player, or trial lawyer making the same amount.

    * You think it's obscene that oil companies are allowed to make 8.3 cents per gallon in profit with gas prices this high, but would never suggest cutting the 13 cents per gallon they pay on taxes to reduce the price of gas.
    * You think George Bush is a chickenhawk because he wanted to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan despite the fact that he only served in the National Guard, but you don't think the same about Barack Obama, who has never served in the military and probably couldn't find either country on a map without help.
    * You think protesting outside of abortion clinics is extremism and should be illegal, but carrying around giant puppet heads while wearing a t-shirt that compares Bush to Hitler is just exercising your First Amendment rights.
    * You think the case for global warming is proven without a shadow of a doubt, but that we need another century or two worth of evidence to figure out if capitalism and free markets work better than socialism.
    * You believe the best way to fix the government screwing something up in the market is with...drumroll, please...more government intervention.
    * You think the first thing we should have done when Russia invaded Georgia was to take the matter to the United Nations, where Russia sits on the UN Security Council.
    * You spend your days criticizing the use of private jets, SUVS, and luxurious houses that consume enormous amounts of resources and then ride in an SUV to the airport, get on your private plane, and fly home to your luxurious house.
    * You have more nice things to say about countries like Cuba and France than you do about your own country.
    * You think the war in Iraq is unwinnable, but victory in the war on poverty is going to happen any day now if we can just get the Democrats back in charge.
    * You won't even support English as our national language, but can't seem to understand why people worry about tens of millions of illegal aliens changing our culture.
    * You think censorship is absolutely wrong; except when it's applied to conservatives on college campuses or on talk radio via the fairness doctrine.
    * You get more upset about an American soldier accidentally killing a civilian than you do about a terrorist deliberately blowing up a school bus full of kids.
    * You think Fox News is hopelessly biased to the right, but MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS call it right down the middle.
    * You think the real hero of the Cold War was Mikhail Gorbachev.
    * You couldn't care less about what Americans in states like Kansas or Virginia think of you, but you would be greatly upset if a Frenchman gave you a dirty look because you're an American.
    * You think kids in public schools should have to watch Earth in the Balance and read Heather Has Two Mommies, but no piece of literature with the word "Jesus" on it should be allowed within a hundred yards of a school.

    You Might Be a Conservative
    by Chris Gladish


    You might be a conservative if:

    * You watch the Rush Limbaugh show the same way your kid watches "Barney
    and Friends"

    * You believe an adulterer who served his wife divorce papers while she
    was in the hospital and later had to be taken to court for lack of child
    support payments named Newt when he talks about how he's for "Family
    Values"

    * You complain about the "liberal media" on any of the numerous
    conservative political TV/radio talk shows.

    * You have a bumper sticker that says "Insured by Smith and Wessen"

    * You believe the hole in the ozone layer to be a myth created by crazy
    liberals.

    * You believe the Holocaust to be a myth created by crazy liberals.

    * You fervently speak about the evils of marijuana at social gatherings
    with a vodka straight in hand.

    * You believe the Constitution states the Christianity is our official
    religion.

    * You molest campaign workers, then lie about it on national television...
    oops, my mistake... that's "You might be Newt Gingrinch if.."

    * You think the words feminist and lesbian are synonyms.

    * If you fit any of Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck if..."

    * You believe every man, woman, child and fetus should be armed to the
    teeth with AK-47's, hand grenades, handguns, and any other weapon
    imaginable.

    * You actually believe that people actually own AK-47's for "hunting
    purposes"

    * You have faith in idiotic economic policies such as "trickle down
    economics"

    * You don't see why everyone's so down on Mark Fuhrman.

    * You think that Michaelangelo's David should be wearing boxers at the
    least.

    * The hostess at the Sizzler knows you by name.

    * You have a button that says "I'm not prejudice, I hate everyone"

    * You can ask your daddy to bail you out when you lose hundreds of
    thousands of dollars from embezzling S&L's

    * Your main source for news is an egocentric man named Rush who distorts
    facts consistantly to fit his views and opinions.

    * You want to find another out-of-work actor to play the figurehead for
    the Republican party (perhaps Bonzo's free)

    * Your response to anything Bill Clinton says includes a reference to
    Arkansas hillbillies.

    * You still attempt to defend Dan Quayle's intelligence.

    * You get offended if someone is unusually quiet on the way to a funeral...
    oops, sorry, my fault again... thats another "You might be Newt
    Gingrinch..."

    * You refuse to talk to your sister because she's a lesbian... dangit,
    sorry...once again, another "You might be Newt..."

    * You obsessively impose your own morality upon others.

    * You wish to ammend the Constitution to make desecration of the flag
    illegal.

    * You wish to rewrite the first ammendment to make desecration of the
    flag illegal.

    * You wish to rewrite the first commandment to make desecration of the
    flag illegal (and here, you thought you were such a good Christian...)

    * You believe that if parents and teachers don't mention sex to a child
    until s/he is 25, then s/he won't even know it exists until then.

    * You think Clarence Thomas is a good spokesman for the black community.

    * You must first don rubber gloves before shaking hands with a homosexual.

    * You attribute the lack of close families to Murphy Brown.

    * You helped to ban Beavis from saying "fire", yet keep a loaded handgun
    in the house (doesn't matter if it's hidden.. your kid knows where it
    is, trust me.)

    * You have a sticker saying "Guns don't kill people, people do" (and I
    suppose those little bullet things are harmless too)

    * You believe that everyone else should hold the same moralistic and
    political views as you, and by God, you're going to see to it that they
    do!

    and finally...

    * You believed anything on the previous "You might be a liberal if..." list.


    Wow! there's a bottomless well of this stuff on the net.

    No Marvin, I have not read The Bell Curve, but I am aware of its content and its surrounding controversy. I cut and pasted that list from the internet with as much thought to its veracity as I'm sure Bob gave to his.
    I believe Bob posted his list in good humor. As I did mine.

    Don't be so serious,

    The difference between the conservative and liberal lists are the following:

    "You might be a Liberal if" states facts about things that are going on now, true extreme examples of true extreme cases and many of those examples are surrounding the anarchist Obama. Anyone remember the first time(s) GW Bush ran for President? The Liberals called him inexperienced... how many years had he been involved in the government at that point? Hate to say it, but when the underachiever in the family is only a State Governer, that's a hell of a family.

    "You might be a conservative" are mostly examples of extreme conservatives... and a few are about as fake and BS as I can think of... example: You believe the Holocaust to be a myth created by crazy liberals. What fricken Conservative thinks the Holocaust was staged??

    Then of course there is this one: "You want to find another out-of-work actor to play the figurehead for the Republican party." Unless I'm crazy, and I might be, this is refering to Reagan, one fo the best modern US presidents. Now to be fair, we could bring in the fact that BHO is on the phone getting political and policy advice from George Clooney. He's not out of work, but much less qualified than even BHO to be giving advice to anyone.

    What I mean is the "conservative" examples are examples of extremists, and the "liberals" list are extremist examples surrounding the leading Democratic Party candidate for the President of the United States... I would think that BHO would want someone a little more qualified to give him advice...?

    Jdogger, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a complete fabrication, and 10 is 100% accurate, how would you rate Bob's list as far as being an accurate portrayal of liberals?

    Well now, that really clarified things, didn't it?

    the "liberals" list is mostly examples surrounding the leading Democratic Party candidate for the President of the United States

    Obama is mentioned once.

    Humorous, both lists are meant to be humorous. Hyperbole is one facet of humor. In both lists.
