It is absolute joy to have Gov 101 discussions online with a 20 year old republican who thinks
teabaggers are right. He just asked me to refrain from trashing teabaggers in my essays (I just wrote an essay on our constitutional rights). I wrote back that he was asking me to give up my right to free speech and that it was so teabagging of him to do that. I can't wait for the response. He's a very angry young man.

2. It won't with him.
Everyone else is the class is entertained, however. He writes his damn essays with no paragraphs. For that alone, he deserves to be tormented and abused.

3. That's a lot of chutzpah to ask you to refrain from anything..Who the
hell does the punk think he is? What a little controller. Give 'em your best and be really, really snarky. I'm no longer on FB and I guess you can tell why. I have a repub cousin in No. Va. Very, very RW. He ran for some office up there but thank god he lost. This was a while back and before the present gov was elected. Out of respect for my uncle (his father) it was just easier for me to leave but I do encourage our side to give as good as they get. That punk could have been my cousin come to think of it...

6. I never respond to his essays online
He has a sick need to respond to mine. I use the term *snort* when he responds and that enrages him. He's a sick little fuck and now that I am guaranteed an A because I have only one essay left to write, I'm gonna start giving him as much shit as he deserves. Besides, I'm pretty sure my teacher is a liberal.

12. This is the badge of the privileged everwhere. They assume there's a right to be unoffended by life
and continue their lives without seeing the hard realities.

I have seen these little punks of the privileged .....


- Try to get a homeless person arrested by a college security guard because that homeless person said the word masturbate on a public sidewalk.

- Ask a cafe owner to burn a magazine that was in his cafe because there was an op ed against one of the student's Senator Father.

- Defend one of their friend freaking out on hallucinogens and attacking a cop, while saying hanging is too good for drunk drivers.

- Feel they have the right to read the Wall Street Journal in class and shake the paper loudly whenever the teacher tries to teach anything the student disagreed with.

The privileged think they have the right to never learn anything that changes their world view and they will get anyone they can fired to defend it.

4. It's amazing they are so confident they are right at such
a young age. They have no idea what this country has been thrugh and the only information they have ever received is through filtered history.

I am interested in how he refers to those on the left. I am guessing we are not described in glowing terms.

9. He has no real opinion.
His essays seem rote, like he's repeating them from stuff he's heard somewhere. He cannot stand the fact that I state my opinion rather than stay safe and just report the facts. That's what happens when you get my age. Fuck it, I'm too old to be a good kid.

17. As Twain said;
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.

5. "He's young and set in his ways"
Who would have ever thought we'd be in an age where that saying had some truth.

7. I don't think I can come up with a phrase more depressing than "20 year old Republican."
Sad sad sad.

10. Seriously
And most of the other kids in my class are either left leaning liberals or hard core dems. He's the only one in our class who voted for Scott Brown. Dork.

18. Children are amazingly sure of themselves
One can only hope he grows up to doubt. I know my world got a lot less black and white as I left behind my twenties. It's kind of embarrassing to look back and see how cocksure and wrong I was.
