“A Public Answer to Foolish Thinking”

Below is an email I received from someone I see as very shortsighted and rather ignorant of basic facts.  My response will be in bold font…his response will be in regular font.



I Am the Liberal-Progressives Worst Nightmare. I Am An American.I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!





 “My Answer to Libertarians”



Well if you don’t believe in taxes, except to defend the country then I guess you will have to make some changes.  Ok then why don’t you dig your own well, have a septic tank , home school your children, you will have to go to a private university, never use a library. Forget about driving on public streets.  Don’t access hospitals. Whom are you going to call if you need the police of fire department?  What would happen to those living at or below the poverty level?  What’s going to happen to our senior citizens?  Where will the funding come from for the handicapped? 



Oh yeah you would be ok… if you have a billion dollars but for the rest of you who earn less than 100k how do you think you would do if there were no taxes?



Good luck, pave your own roads, pump your own water, teach your children. Perhaps we should tell you “you have no right to access public funds” Since you believe that you should not pay taxes.



I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything.



Easy for you to say, I’ll bet you did not know that they were still lynching people in the south in the 70’s 



I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want.




I’ve never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks or Mongols and neither have you! So, shut up already.  I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA.




This is where we came from!  You have obviously forgotten that we ALL have come from somewhere else, with the exception of the Native Americans. The vast majority think that you and those who spout your rhetoric are living in “The Land Time Forgot”.


If you were born here and don’t like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.


 Well you have your facts wrong, socialism is not being advocated for America by any candidate…so where did you get your information? 



I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry rear if you’re running from them.




Shooting a person in the back is NOT even the law of the west!



I also think they have the right to pull you over if you are breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.   There is nothing wrong with profiling, if you fit the profile of those committing the crimes.



Well that’s easy for you because you obviously live in the “Land Time Forgot”, or maybe you forgot.  You never lived as a person of color so how would you know what its like to live as a Hispanic, Native American, African American or Asian American. 



 I am sure that God would not be too proud to hear your less than Christian beliefs.



I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years. I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause.  I believe that it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents. I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.  I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICAIf this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I’m a BAD American. 




Your ignorance of basic facts is glaring.  Your bigoted small minded view of who WE are as American citizens leaves much to be desired.  Perhaps, you should educate yourself in the history of our great nation before you go spouting your foolishness.







  1. You certainly have the pulse of rational thinking Americans. Like others, I’ve read just about everything you’ve written. I’ve found some of your articles in the Huffington Post and NY Times.

    When I saw the horse’s ass, it made me laugh out loud. The post or two before this was a comedy. You never do the same thing twice, which is why I enjoy your site.

  2. where do you get all your ideas? i hope it’s ok but i emailed some of your dog information to my sister in AZ.

    the post you did on knowing the issues was really good, but this one i like better. it’s both true and funny at the same time. thank you for answering my email last week. it was helpful

  3. You go girl! I like your style and can easily see you are making a serious point concerning those that want to be unrealistic and believe they should have no part in the bailout. It is the height of ridiculous to believe that what is happening to our economy has no impact on the rest of us.

    Some of the statements you are commenting to I have read on my own blog. Who knows they could be the same people responding to your blog and mine.

    I’ve come to learn that stupid has no race, name or color and bigots and fools just love to show the world just how stupid they really are.

  4. Brilliant, Michelle. Really brilliant. I’m so happy there are people out there like you (and me) who take the time and effort to speak to these ignorant, narrow-minded fools. I try not to be judgmental, but it’s honestly difficult when I come face to face with someone who is so out of touch with what’s actually happening in the world. I also have very little tolerance for intolerance. =) It’s asinine, and has no place in our current globalized world. People can be such assholes: racial profiling is ok because you look like the people committing the crimes? Say what? And here our white vice president is the one shooting people in the face. Urg.

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you…to those of you who have left a response.

    DesigningDiva…I totally forgot about Cheney shooting that guy in the face! The worst was that he was a friend…if one shoots a friend in the face (accidently or not), I’d have serious doubts as to his “aim” in anything…especially politics…lol

    Kindest Regards,
