    Re: Comportment question

    I am the same.. I don't get to talk to that many conservatives in real life.. Probably a good thing too.. The only two conservatives I know are my mother in law, and her father.. Her father by the way, was a republican for over 60 years.. Until Bush.. He actually voted for Obama and has stopped watching Fox News.. I wish I could take credit for that.. My mother in law has also converted.. Having MS and being in her 60's.. She is terrified of Ryans plans and how they will effect Medicare and SS.. She has been a nurse all her life..

    To my regret, my language is more refined on the forums than in real life. I am practicing. In general, I am a much more pleasant person online because I can keep people from seeing when I lose control.

    Re: Comportment question

    I am careful in my private life as I don't want to offend my friends nor, owing to the fund raising I do, do I want to put off people willing to support my causes. So I wouldn't want them to see my true liberal nature.

    Re: Comportment question

    My wife, wouldn't bother me.

    Most others, probably not a good idea.
    Most/all don't share my political views, they would want to discuss it, I would hammer them and it would cause a fracture in important relationships.

    Just expressing my opinion in university got me some looks and lightly heated exchanges.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Comportment question

    My boss is the 2nd most conservative man in the world, after my Father. He already knows that I am a Super Liberal so he just wouldn't read any of my gibberish anyway.

    I'd be OK either way.

    He's right, it was partisan. Comportment has nothing to do with political lean and everything to do with treating people like **** when they don't agree with you. Now, I do have to say that not one person who has posted in this thread has said anything other than what I expected. Because none of the people who Behave Badly at DP on a daily basis has weighed in (as yet).

    I am the same opinionated, foot-in-mouth person in real life. I actually encourage the people I know to join the forum.

    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    No, I pretty much talk like this in real life too. Including all the cursing. I curse as a matter of colloquialism.
