Adopt a liberal / Adopt a conservative

THE OFFICIAL LIBERAL/CONSERVATIVE BRIDGES TO UNDERSTANDING PROJECT
AKA Adopt a liberal / Adopt a conservative

Simply because I need something to do to engage my mind this Christmas break since I won't allow myself (and my wife won't allow me) to buy Starcraft again.

Hey I got an idea.

Liberals pick a book: any book, which Liberals feel most strongly represents Liberal's political views.

Conservatives pick a book: any book, which Conservativesfeel most strongly
represents Conservative's political views.

Conservatives buy the liberal book, and liberal's buy conservatives book. If you have read neither book, you will probably need to buy bott.

Both Conservatives and Liberals read a chapter of each, and then we all report on what we think.

If I don't consider myself to be either conservative or liberal, can I still play?

The hard part is coming up with books to read. Do I pick from either side or try to find books with no political slant?
Hey can I use your real name?

I think you can be independent to play, although you seem to lean conservative like my new conservative friends here....

I think we are looking for books with a bit of political slant...

I don't know, people are still coming, this web blog just started, so the guidelines are yet to be formed--your input is welcome....on all subjects...

Can you invite your friend mike to come if he is interested recinutah?

You're both from Phoenix? As I said on AZPlace, my good friend recently left the LDS. Apparently, Steve Benson is a leader of the "Underground Railroad" for Mormon Emigrants.
Wow, Steve Benson, the cartoonist, relative of the late prophet Benson? I will be damn, I read about him years ago (Mormon church is small indeed).

We are not from Phoenix, only lived there 2 years on our missions:

I was in Glendale, Buckeye, Central and South Phoenix and Heber. '92-'94

Hate that damn city too hot.

How do you know the infamous Steve Benson?
You said he "recently" left the church, but I thought he left years and years ago...(I guess he was on his way out, it takes time to leave--no one wakes up one day and says I am no longer Mormon)

He could probably write a book on his life and make some money on it...his story is very well known (or at least it was in the early '90s--very infamous in Mormon circles) within mormonism...

Neocon, how about making a new post with suggested conservative slanted books?
Hey neocon, can you make a new post on this page with some suggested conservative books? Your favorites. You may have to decide for everyone which book to read...depends on who we attract to this posting....

It is me Kerrysucks! Some bast%$#@$ has my name so I have changed mine to ndkicksace (Notre Dame kicks..... ACE)
My son needs the computer and I need a computer break... Nice to see you here....
How about "Stolen Valor"? Larry Elder's book "The Ten Things you can't Say in America", Ann Coulter's "How to talk to a Liberal", Laura Ingrhams, "Shut Up and Sing", "Biased" by Bernard Goldberg?
If you really want to read something great we can read Notre Dame's greatest coaches! LOL!
okay, I will compile all of the choices tommorow and we can "vote" friday.....okay?
thanks for suggestions...
Did I hear that the NAACP is actually sueing public institutions for having Christmas decorations up during the holidays, something about separation of Church and State? And I thought I was a grinch.
I dont really care about that kinda stuff. Like prayer in school, gay marriage, ten comandment displays, and abortion, kinda a non-issue to me...

I wish the ACLU would focus only on free speech issues, or have a special branch seperate from the ACLU, with a different name, that focuses on the church and state issues only, seperate. If I were president of ACLU I would do that. I think a lot more people would support the ACLU then.

If I wanted to stay in the states as a lawyer I would work for them, and stick it to the government. I think the ACLU has done some wonderful things, although I dont support or care about a lot of the issues they get involved in...
