    That's pretty funny, SiroMar. Do you think it's because you relate to them more than conservatives and have closer comradere that they come off more annoying? Like you expect better of them?
    That's probably true at some level. But I think there is something inherently annoying about them nevertheless. When conservatives say something I find absurd, it usually comes off as paranoid and divisive. Liberals come off as smug and dismissive. I deal with liberals far more, so I'm angry at them much more often.

    I consider myself VERY socially progressive. Most of my friends are politically indifferent, but hold liberal-leaning views (typical in scientific fields). However, I know some moderate Mormons that I consider conservative leaning, and a couple of Berkeley types hyper liberals. Out of all the groups that I know, the latter is the one that annoys me the most. I don't hang out with any hardcore conservatives, so I don't know much about their personality. But the discussions I get into with my hard-left friends blow my ****ing mind. Here is a sample of discussions I've had in the past week.

    Yesterday, I spent an hour arguing that white people are not specially racist (current generation). But they'd hear none of it. White people are terrible racists. End of story! A few days earlier, I had to defend the idea that human beings are far more intelligent than any other species on earth. You would think that this is so damn obvious, that it would be beyond reasonable discussion. But nope, not to them. Just look how intelligent that dog is! He totally understands what I'm saying. That's a good boy.

    That is not to mention the countless debates on how awesome communism is. Or the endless bitching about this technology or that (nuclear power, GM crops, etc).

    I thought I'd share. :-D
    You need to be more transparent and divulge the age group you are interacting with. This sounds like stereotypical undergrad love for relativism.

    Honestly, I find that both sides are full of morons. When I was younger, I used to be seriously irked by most of my conservative-counterprts; now I've found that many of my friends who liberal, like myself, are equally angering. They do anger me in different ways though; I feel like some of my right-wing counterparts lack logic, whereas some of my left-wing counterparts are smug to a nauseating degree. Neither is better, really.

    Dalamon might go down as the worst Jazz fan ever.

    First he cursed us with Trey Burke. Now he's trying to nickname Favors a transsexual. Among many other fan crimes.

    They range in age between mid 20s to mid 40s. I wish they were just young and naive.

    Pretty much what I said. I just said it better.

    I find that many conservatives are very open minded as long as you agree with everything they think and say. I'd say more but don't want to flame the hatred.

    You can interchange these words and the sentence still holds true.
    The difference is that conservatives typically have a known set of values and beliefs and readily admit these up front. Liberals claim to be open minded and accepting of all values and beliefs but only as far as you agree with them in many cases.

    That is the problem with liberals (which I think is different than a left leaning individual). They know better than you. No matter what it is, they know how you should behave and what you should do better than you do.
    Liberals and conservatives are all dumb asses, to be either a strong liberal or conservative you have to be fairly illogical and 100% stubborn.
