  •  Great diary!!!! (7+ / 0-)

    Never let the buttheads deter you....I have to say it to myself daily.  Living in SC.....boy oh boy, some of the stuff people say.....

    BUT, when I remind them of HOW we got here, more than I expect stop and listen.

    Other things that get them to quiet down:

    1.  healthcare is all private industry.  There is no socialism there in any way, shape or form.  The insurance companies were raising your rates before the reform, so nothing has really changed except some people get insurance now.
    1.  I tell them what the credit card reform is going to do not only for them, but for working people and our economy in general.
    1.  Fannie and Freddie did not cause the housing crisis.  That was pure Wall Street.

    It may not work everywhere, but I get good mileage out of these 3 points in particular
