    Amen!  I'm glad I'm not the only person on Daily Kos who also being a native of Berkeley long before Kos even exists, knows what real diversity is here.

    Why aren't Kossacks turning to George Lakoff more?  He's a master at linguistics and has been very instrumental and influential in the liberal circle.

    Seriously, why must people on Kos keep referring to those in red districts as conservative.  Seriously, if say Congressman Darrell Issa for example was so conservative, why is it that he in the years of 2003-2007 keeps voting for the Iraq War funding, allowing the increases of debt to continue to pile on?

    By learning more on Lakoff, we can realize that yes, we don't have to fear conservatives.  I mean, there are, believe it or not, conservatives in Berkeley although mostly scattered in the North Berkeley hills and the nearby town of Kensington.
