another victim of Liberalism

I had a friend--a woman--complain yesterday about the relative lack of "ladies' nights" at bars here in Seattle when compared to cities in, say, the Midwest. Ladies' night is when bars sell drinks to women for extremely cheap prices (or for free), and to men for the regular price (this is how the bars rake in the money, of course).

She's a dyed-in-the-wool socialist liberal, so I don't know why she was complaining. Here in Seattle, men and women are equal! No special treatment for the fairer sex. If you want that kind of thing, you have to go to the backwards fly-over conservative states.

Now that's a no brainer . . . can't have it both ways . . . equality is equality, and if that means we all shovel s**t together, well, that's the way it goes!!

Neith, you are sounder more and more conservative as time passes. What do they say about aging and conservatism? If you are not liberal when you are young, you have no heart; if you are not conservative when you are old, you have no brains? ;)

A web search reveals the original wording to be: "The man who is not a socialist at twenty has no heart, but if he is still a socialist at forty he has no head”, which belongs to the former French Prime Minister Aristide Briand.
