Holy crap guys. Guests are having breakfast at work, and they’re having this conversation about “what’s wrong with our society today.” This dude blamed psychologists (I am in grad school to be just such a thing), thought doctors and medicine were making us a “race of weaklings,” claimed the only doctor mentioned in the Bible was Jesus, who was a “great healer.”
He swore that because California was like it’s own little country (“like Amsterdam” lol), everything they voted in swept across the rest of the country. All of those college students protesting everything, from Vietnam (wtf welcome to 1975). Said Californians were basically running the whole country and he couldn’t wait for them to get that good earthquake so they could fall into the ocean. “Did you know they basically legalized marijuana over there? All you need is a Doctor’s note and you can get whatever you want, legally.” He said that “God takes care of these sorts of things,” and that we should “look at New Orleans. That place was so Godless, and God took care of it. Look at where all of the bad stuff has happened this year. Las Vegas is next.” I was just waiting for him to blast on the queers, though it never came up. He kept saying that it was all Liberals’ fault; liberals were destroying our country.
I just…this…so…WHY YOU SO IGNORANT?! I’m not even a liberal; I’m a centrist! But I was good and kept my mouth shut; I’m not on the clock to give my opinion U____U. As my old Econ. teacher in High School used to say, “I disagree with what you are trying to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Guys, I need to get the Hell out of the South. Please. Help a brother out.
