    Argh. The beautiful ladies next door are talking politics while sunbathing in their swimsuits. To make matters worse, the girl talking her mouth off is dumb as snot.

    She's claimed that California is an even 50/50 split of Republicans and Democrats (the Democrats actually have a supermajority in the legislature now). She's insisted that Obama didn't win by millions of votes but only a few dozen and that voter fraud made the difference. She's currently arguing that Obamacare sucks because it isn't as good as an average Euro socialized system and so we should adopt Republican plans that privatize everything.

    I don't want to start a political fight here. Just admitting that my two favorite things are talking to scantily clad ladies and talking politics. So hard to not be that neighbor right now.

    Tell her you completely agree and you'd love to discuss it further over some wine.

    Talking ill-informed politics while sunbathing in February. Temp right now is 70°.

    California is a wonderful place.

    Damnit TB rules. I said I'm trying to not be that neighbor. Shooting pics of the scantily-clad neighbors in their backyard is worse than the already bad 'bout them politishuns' pickup line.

    Oddly, it doesn't sound all that different than growing up in Minnesota....aside from all the sun and bikinis. :)

    We had at least half if not more of the states population living in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro are (quite cosmopolitan/ "Left" politics), and less than half living in the entire rest of the state (rural farmers or folks who live "up in the sticks", "Right" politics).

    Basically, a bunch of people in maybe a 3 county area dictating to the rest how things ought to be. :D

    Here where I live now in Austin, it's kind of the opposite....basically an oasis of liberalism in the middle of a very "red" state. :D

    People all have an amazing ability to perceive reality as they want it to be, not as it really is.

    Unsurprisingly, this ability extends to pretty girls.

    I don't get it....I see two girls dancing and a guy in a sweater vest.


    Have you tried inviting her over to watch an episode of Hannity?

    While I'm by no means a liberal in the current sense, I am by no means your typical Alabamian when it comes to my political leanings.

    People like me in a state like this are best served to just keep our thoughts to ourselves.

    I'd be described as Libertarian on most things, Conservative on a couple things, yet we all seem to get along fine here. I think some of it has to do with the difference between "conservative" and "republican". I don't support any political party, just good ideas.

    In these situations it's best to let your little do the thinking, not your big head

    No politics in Off Topic means just that. NO politics.

    Is that so hard?
