talking to a conservative

Do read this blog discussion between a liberal and a conservative (the link to which I found at my cousin's blog). Entertaining in a deeply depressing way.

Reminds me of the time I saw a woven wallhanging in the home of a particularly well-to-do right-wing person I know. It was made in Pakistan and had the artist's signature on it, and I said I was glad to see that because it meant that it was unlikely to have been made by slave labor. The person's response? "Well at least they [enslaved children] get food, water, and a place to sleep." Apparently, sometimes even decrying slavery is too liberal.

Some people just don't get it do they? All they have to do is read about American slavery--or a good newspaper story about workers overseas--and maybe they'll get it.

I believe you mean "a liberal and a conservative" not "a liberal and a democrat."

Just sayin'.
