Friends and Viewpoints
In this process, I made a conscious effort to send him not only columns from different sources, but from different partisan leanings as well. Thank you Hitch.
That night he claimed Libertarian as the closest party affiliation that described him....well, he is dreaming.
This Common Dreams site is a far, far Leftey whacked-out site. Noam Chomsky is listed under their 'View Points' and there are direct links to ACCORN, IndyMedia and Rethinking Marxism (I DID NOT make that one up folks).
So after a week or so of providing raw data, many, many columns and Blog posts from various sites, I've come to the realization that I'm in the middle of a disturbing situation.
Do I actually know someone who agrees with looney sites/people, ie, the Real America Haters? It is a bizarre situation.
I've challenged my friend in an email on 1) Did he realize these folks are supported by the one site he apparently reads? and 2) Does he agree with Chomsky and these other radical groups?
Well, as I await my answer I will definitely let you all know his reply and mean time, I'll be taking a hot, scalding shower.
