    When people hear real liberals talking about real liberal ideas, we don't sound anything like the strawmen the right likes to put up.

      "they" sound just like the stereotype RW extremist/Bagger who gets all news and info from Fox, Limbaugh and the rest of their media icons.

      I don't think many of those who are so vocal now had even the slightest interest in politics or issues before Obama was sworn in.  

      Some might have watched Fox, possibly because it is so accessible on cable and some might have listened to Limbaugh, et al, for the usual reasons; but, now they are experts and political pundits spouting RW fear/hate mongering, gibberish and conspiracy theories.

        from a politically neutral person into a person who says shit like, "both sides are the same," "Both sides are corrupt," and "honey, buy more emergency supplies because terra is coming for us!"

        He bought all the shit about having to invade Iraq and it pretty much drove us apart.

          too...some because of RW religion and others because of RW politics both of which are available 24/7 on cable.

          Despite my self-imposed ban on talking about politics and religion pre-Bush, the last decade has undermined that pledge and made me an impatient and often contemptuous conversationalist.

          Did you really have emergency supplies?

          •  Yes, we had 2 weeks worth of water for four people (2+ / 0-)

            in jugs as well as various containers in the fridge and I kept a month supply of dried and canned foods for four people AND we had two backpacks in the trunk of the car with three day supplies of food and water.

            Don't get me started on the crossbow...

              That water supply must have taken up way too much space and even though I'd really like to ask about the crossbow, I'll restrain myself.

              This sounds very scary and you're lucky to be out of the marriage, IMO.  I'm sure it's taken you some time to put your head back together again.

              I had a friend who is an obsessive collector/hoarder whose life had not yet fallen apart because of it.  She is a lovely person with a big heart but the collecting and keeping kept her in a whole 'nother space than where I live.

                There was much water out there and a pantry full of dried and canned goods, honey, dried milk, powdered eggs.  After the divorce my son and I really got to like the taste of that Mountain House Beef Stroganoff....just add hot water.

                I still keep a small reserve, but hey, a month is a lot of food.
