  •  You brave, brave darling. You risked doing that, (6+ / 0-)

    in Westlake! I'm glad you made it out of there alive. There are good reasons why Paul Ryan knew he'd find a friendly audience there. For example, I know you're white because you were allowed to sit in the front row in the first place. Had you looked like me, you would have been allowed in (as long as you were wearing a suit) but you'd have been "caged" into sitting near the rear, and security would have been watching you from the start.

    Security would have been all over your ass (if non-caucasian) like white on rice the minute you first opened your mouth, and probably before you could have finished your sentence. For shouting "liar" you would have received physical bruises which would have been explained to the police as caused by your unprovoked aggression toward a staffer who attempted to "calm you down."

    You went to Westlake! And told the truth to Ryan's face in front of a roomful (and city) of rabid Ryan supporters. You are a genuine, no snark, hero. That deed took brass bound 'nads, and was effective as well as courageous. Well done.

    Thanks to already-built-in anthropogenic climate change, our planet will only be able to sustain half a billion humans in 2100 AD. Human population will probably reach 9 billion in 2050 AD. Will your descendants be among the 'lucky' one-in-eighteen?

      red v-nech sweater; blue chino pants, black loafers and horn-rimmed glasses.

      I am an ex-seminarian who has Mr. Ryan's young, altar boy looks--I am sure that helped immensely.

      As for what you say would have happened to you, I can only sadly agree wholeheartedly....
