Don’t let the facts get in the way

In her discussions with her progressive friends, Rat Jr. called “bullshit” on the business of the “Occupy” folks wearing the Guy Fawkes masks like in V for Vendetta.  She knew they had missed the point of the movie.  I tried to give her some ammunition to use, but as usual, I was less coherent and certainly less eloquent than I would have liked.

This is what I should have said.

    This coupled with what you sent it is great. And the more I look at things and talk to people, the more I get the sense that they want me to shut up and I barely even talk about this kind of stuff. It amazes me how a lot of people just give me the brush off like I’m some idiot and I don’t know what I’m talking about or how it isn’t dinner table conversation when I’m not even at a freaking dinner table. Worse, I’m probably going to lose friends over differences in political opinion which just seems terribly wrong.
