Conversations with Liberals
Last week at work we were discussing Liberal and Conservative politics. I am a Conservative, several of my co-workers are Liberals (incidentally, they are from Ontario and the Maritimes, what a shock). One of them is very good at keeping the discussion civil, we treat each other with respect and I value her opinion.

The other co-worker... yeah, he's not so good at that.

Him: "If people vote for Stephen Harper then they are stupid."

Me: "Hmm well I guess I'm ok with being 'stupid' because I've voted for him in the past and I'll do so again."

Him: "He's just a liar."

Me: "Really? Do you think so? What has he lied about?"

Him: "Well... like, last year... look. I'm just not going to get into this with you."

Me: "Ok"

So, apparently it is ok for him to tell me I'm stupid, but it's not ok for me to ask him to back up his statement with facts. Alrighty then.
