From time to time the bickering, for lack of a better word, with conservatives whether here or at their sites, can be fun. After this last exchange with Tim, Neocon1 and Jeremiah at Views From the Right Side this week I was left feeling a little bitter. I will make this short and sweet. What I get paid to do is verify the information that comes in and package it for our readers. I am a researcher and a journalist that prides himself both on his accomplishments and has learned from his failures.
In this case, I have failed. Not in the meaningless and pointless arguments with people who’s minds will never be changed at their blogs, but you, our readers. The progressive cause is not one that wants to take the rights of people away. On the contrary, Progressives want to use the government and its power and purse to make the lives of Middle Class Americans better. Just listening last night to Senator Elizabeth Warren and representative Elijah Cummings talk about what they want to do to help the bruised, battered and ever shrinking Middle Class gave me more than a little hope. I should be writing editorials about what those who I think have the best solutions to America’s problems; not screaming at the top of my lungs at people who have no grasp upon reality. The stories you should have been glued to over the past few weeks should have been about the alleged “black sites” in Chicago and ever deeper writing about the Mette rape case and the corruption in the South Dakoya Department of Social Services.
I will do better for you. In the end you, the young Progressives in America, are the reason why I do this and I apologize for losing sight of the real reason I am here. So, for the record, and since they will never change their minds, turn their back on bigotry, or even ever admit that their political ideology restricts Americans from living their lives in Freedom and with Justice I have this parting commentary. “Enjoy your petty blog comments victories, your self aggrandizement and even your bloviating conservative media icons. If you think you are winning the hearts and minds of young Americans you are more than delusional you are insane. You are the same people who a short five years ago said that same sex marriage would never be legal in a majority of states. Look where we are now with 37 states and the District of Columbia. You are the same voices that shouted epithets at children as they walked to schools decades ago. You, conservatives are the past; Progressives are the future.”
