The Mind of the Blue Stater
OK,..so Wannabee-Medic Mike and I oriented a new medic yesterday. I've never worked with her before and she's not from our area.
As we got to know each other over the course of the shift, she proclaims "I'm a Democrat and proud of it!" OK,..no problem. She wanted to know if XM carried NPR,...grrr,..but, whatever floats yer boat. Mike and I let her know where we stand (we're both fairly conservative and vote Republican). The FNG proceeds to tell us, "that's fine. I have an open mind to other people's thoughts and I like to exchange ideas."
Yeah, right. Let's see,...as soon as we started 'conversing' about GWB, how some people disrespected the office of the President (not just GWB) by protesting on the inauguration, our policies on Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, etc,....she starts screaming at us like a banshee!
Mike and I couldn't get a word in to save our lives, let alone explain our positions to her.
Hmmm,...and people wonder why "Air America" isn't doing too well?
