People post the dumbest things. Somehow, a liberal friend of a friend became a friend of mine on Facebook. That wouldn’t be so bad since I do have a few liberal friends. In this case, I finally couldn’t stand it.
Byron Gates, Jr, posted a complaint on his wall about the billboard in Iowa from the North Iowa Tea Party. It put Hitler, Obama, and Lenin on the same level, and contained the “outrageous” phrase Live Free or Die at the bottom. This has caused an uproar in many liberal, progressive, and socialist circles.
To think that such imagery would be used! How could such a violent phrase – live free or die – be used! Here’s the funny thing.
Live Free or Die is the state motto of New Hampshire. It’s even on their license plates.
Classic failure on the part of liberals. They forget the vile rhetoric aimed at Bush/Cheney, Clinton/Gore, Bush/Quayle, and Reagan/Bush. Of course Carter deserves everything that was said about him – then and now.
So what does this have to do with Facebook and Byron Gates, Jr? Well, he put up his wall post with the statement: “Can you believe the assholes. Even if you love the Tea Party, even if you are a conservative at any level, this is just downright offensive.”
Then he later stated, “Too much money, too little brains. They are a joke.” Of course, he was referring to conservatives and Tea Party people. Therein lies the problem for Byron. He tries, like most liberals, to put himself on a pedestal above others. That simply doesn’t hold water with his weak debate skills and zero command of the facts.

He simply feels good preaching to the choir of his friends where they can pat each other on the back and feel good. Naturally, I posted a reply and was promptly “blocked” from his wall.
