What is a typical day of a liberal like?
My alarm goes off early in the morning, the glorious Soviet anthem jolting me out of my wonderful dream about taking all the money from big corporations and giving it to that homeless guy who hangs out across the street. I get out of bed, pausing to throw a reverent look towards the portrait of Lenin on the wallFor breakfast, I have some all-inclusive, gluten-free, vegan, equal-opportunity, etc. Cheerio- um, I mean generic, non-branded, donut-shaped cereal that has nothing to do with trademarked symbols of bourgeoisie corporate oppression. I put on a Che Guevara t-shirt and some sweatpants, and hunt around for my black hoodie and bandana for the antifa rally after school.I don’t actually attend any classes, because the teachers just repeat sexist, bigoted propaganda, then get mad at me when I tell them. I can’t believe how rude they are!!!!1!1!!!11!!!!1111!!!!! I just find an empty hallway and smoke pot all day. I’m technically failing all my classes, but grades are just a letter. I identify as trans-grade. It’s so transphobic of you to assume that I’m a F just because that’s what’s on my report card. Inside, I’m an A+!After school, I get on the train. I don’t pay for my ticket, because I don’t support the misogynist government organizations. At this point, you might point out that refusing to pay money to government-run utilities like public transportation contradicts my aforementioned socialist positions, thus making me somewhat hypocritical. To which I would reply, OMG THAT’S SO FASCIST!!!!! CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE, YOU WHITE CISHET SCUM!!!!!!!!! Is that logical? No. Do I care? Fuck no.I get off (not in that way! Stop objectifying women, you sexist asshole!) downtown and throw on the hoodie and bandana. I put on sunglasses too, just for good measure, even though it’s really cloudy today. I walk a block to the rally, where my friends and I spend the rest of the afternoon throwing around bricks and Molotov cocktails and beating up old men.It’s hard work overthrowing the privileged bigoted racist sexist homophobic transphobic heteronormative corporate bourgeois system, but we continue to fight. One day, my comrades, we shall prevail…*Disclaimer: the above answer is satirical. This is neither my daily routine nor an accurate representation of my political beliefs or those of many others who identify as liberals. Yeah. the end.
Should I be leery of a person who has a "Don't tread on me" sticker on their car window? Usually, the people who have these stickers are domestic terrorists and “sovereign citizens,” or that’s what I've been told all my life by school officials.
Want to get your mind blown? Here is a flag similar to what you are describing:Who do you think might fly this flag? A terrorist? Maybe some sovereign citizen nut-job? WRONG! This is, in fact, the official jack currently flown by all commissioned vessels of the US Navy!Here is the version you are probably familiar with, also known as the Gadsden Flag:It was originally used as a motto flag by the American Continental Marines.The rattlesnake and the slogan “Don’t Tread on Me” are very deeply rooted in American history, and see prolific use throughout the US Military to this day. It represents the belief that the government’s control over the people must be severely limited; that most things in our lives simply are not the business of the government. If you spend any amount of time on a US Military base you see these stickers, tattoos, flags, hats, t-shirts etc. everywhere. It is a symbol cherished by those who serve because it represents the liberty and freedom they strive to protect.Here are some other military insignia inspired by the design:59th Infantry Division116th Cavalry BCTUS Army Drill Sergeant BadgeFlag of the US Army (pictured at the top)Notice how the motto “This We’ll Defend” is pictured with the snake? It refers to the freedom and liberty the snake represents.There is very little chance someone with this sticker is a domestic terrorist. There is a very good chance, however they are a current or former member of the US Military. The most likely chance, however is that it is just a normal person who loves liberty and freedom, perhaps just like you do.
What are some slang terms used among police officers?
The most derogatory terms for the bad guys and citizens who are just pains in the rectum:A.H. = Adam Henry (A-dam H-enry) If you don’t get it…..sometimes you will hear it as “Jack Hole”…..now what starts with an “A” that ends with HOLE ?RICHARD CRANIUM= What starts with a “D” and is a nickname for Richard ? What is the non-medical layman’s term for the Cranium ? Do these clues HEAD you in the right direction ?
If you were to describe the 2016 presidential candidates in terms of a car, what car would they be and why?
Donald Trump is a gold Cadillac Escalade.Flashy, gaudy, rich. It was a great idea in thought but completely impractical in actual use. It looks perfect and well put together, but the engine is wasteful and somewhat unreliable. It serves no purpose other than “look at me!”. When we drive it we have balls of steel, feel superior to other drivers, and it’s great! Absolutely fantastic! We’re making driving great again! Until you take it in for service and realize it’s a lemon of a truck with shiny skin over it. But at least it’s not a frumpy used Pontiac Aztec!Hillary Clinton is a used Pontiac AztecFrumpy, utilitarian, a little beat up. It’s not quite what we wanted, but still serves a purpose I guess. It leaks oil, needs TLC, and the interior is stained and a little ripped. It’s been the daily driver for so long, it probably only has a couple good years left. We want a new car, but we’re broke so we have to hope the wheels don’t fall off soon. When we drive it we feel like were settling for less, there’s always something uncomfortable, and every time we go on a ride, the check engine lamp comes on. But at least it’s not a gaudy gold Cadillac Escalade!EDIT 10/14/2016:At the request of another Quora user, Gary Johnson would be a Polaris Slingshot.Fun, Sporty, really impractical-but dammit it’s a great looking ride. It’s the ultimate anti-car for those who are fed up with the mainstream automotive establishment. Ultimately a toy for those who don’t need the mandatory add-ons of other vehicles. If you’re looking for creature comforts and more safety, this might be a little extreme for you. But if you prefer freedom and no-frills excitement this is the ride you want!Bernie Sanders is a TrabantUncomfortable, slow, noisy, and dirty but everybody gets one! Nobody will have any advantage or disadvantage and did I mention everybody gets one? The perfect ride for a socialist economy!Jill Stein is a bio-diesel powered VW BusPractically impractical, reeks of patchouli and marijuana, but smart. No chance in hell of ever having any mainstream recognition other than identifying with hippies.
What is it like to live in Wisconsin?
I moved to Wisconsin from Israel and expected it to be the most boring place on earth. Boy, was I wrong...There are a lot of things people don't know about Wisconsin. They think it's just another Nebraska with a lake. But the truth is that Wisconsin has a lot of hidden gems, beautiful scenery, little towns that seem to have come straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. You'll get the urban experience in Milwaukee, the Gen-Y experience in Madison and small-town-USA experience just about everywhere else.People here really are very friendly and neighborly and the southern part of the state is very culturally diverse, especially in the Milwaukee area. Our kids go to a school which has, in the entrance hall, flags hanging from all the countries where students came from. There are 50+ flags!Summertime is the best in Wisconsin. Folklore festivals, air shows, car races, beaches and of course the northern lakes area. You name it and you'll find it here in Wisconsin.One thing I feel I should also mention is that Wisconsin recently went through a most vicious political battle. Politicians kept pouring gasoline onto the flames and polarizing the two sides with hatred and pointed fingers. Now that this battle is over, Wisconsin is in the process of healing and I personally hope it's the last time we will ever experience such a sad situation in this great state.Welcome and if you're in the Milwaukee area - stop by for a beer. I'll be happy to introduce you to the gang in my favorite bar. You won't want to leave!
