    You heard it here first! If it wasn't for liberals we'd all be drinking filthy water, taking medications that kill us, and eating rotten bacon and eggs! What a wonderful life we have because of liberals!

    What's going to happen when their all their heads blow up from all that swelling and we are left with no liberals? Oh, woe the day!

    What makes the author of the opinion piece believe that it was liberals that supported those particular items cited?

    The whole article is nothing but silly fluff.

    >prejudice is a neutral term - some prejudice is good

    Why is ever good to make a judgement before any facts or experience is available?

    Average stupid American doesn't know the difference between "prejudice" and "discrimination."

    Right there you are making a judgment before you know all the facts.

    I agree, most people do not know the true definitions of terms such as prejudice, discrimination, bias, racist, ect...

    I find the whole concept to be hilarious.

    Libbies don't want animal testing of drugs - so libbies don't want us to have any safe and tested medicines.

    Libbies don't want any domestic animals - they want them all set free - so no eggs, fried chicken, bacon, ham, steaks - you name it.

    Libbies don't want any use of pesticides or chemicals on farm crops - so say goodbye to the abundace of food in out nation.

    Libbies don't want any use of oil - so say good bye to use of your auto and heating of your home.

    Libbies don't want any level of carbon pollution - so say good bye to all manufactured products.

    Libbies don't want any cutting down of trees - so say good bye to wood for furniture and houses.

    The list goes on and on.

    The libbies want all humans to cease procreating and just die a slow death by stravation.

    Because they are better than everyone else - don't you know?
