It’s not easy being a conservative today.  In fact, it never has been easy since conservative values are more confining than liberal freedoms to do and act as you damn well please regardless of the consequences to society, family, and self.

Still, there are undeniable benefits to conservatism, not the least of which is watching, listening to, and reading the antics of the left which often approach the level of Theater of the Absurd. 

Another conservative plus, which requires a sense of humor, is that we get to laugh at what liberals do and say and how they act.

Cases in point are the following comments to articles I have re-posted on the Cincinnati.com blogsite.  All were made by “westsidejohn” in response to those articles.  I know nothing of westsidejohn aside from the content of his comments which have not been edited in anyway.

I think they’re pretty funny and very typical of the liberal mentality, not to mention the ever present venom that governs their daily existence and which erupts in such vitriol.  It’s sick and even sad, in a way, but also amusing if you appreciate that kind of humor.

Would you say the same thing to a man who dates a younger woman?  And as for her interview with Sarah Palin….she exposed Palin for the inexperienced, stupid intolerant twit that she is!! Sarah Palin couldn’t even name which newspapers she read when she could have ended up in the highest office in the free world.

You are obviously a very bitter and very uneducated person. Thank God I don’t have to worry about an imbecile like you ever being in any important office. Why don’t you switch to a subject you know because current events and politics are not one of them!

I bet you didn’t even go to college and in high school you only took the “regular” classes that didn’t challenge your mind. I bet you’re gonna come home tonight from your minimum wage job and heat up a can of ravioli and go to bed ALONE! You are uneducated, intellecutally inferior and you have no life. I bet you also have a ton of unsighlty “wild” hairs, mousy brown hair going gray, bald spots, and so much cellulite you like like a jumbo barrell of white pale stale cottege cheese!

I suspect westsidejohn is a very unhappy, possibly severely disturbed, individual.  He could also use a life and a spell-checker.
