In Search of Messages The Left Might Understand

As I make my daily rounds of the internet, reading news stories but mostly conservative and libertarian blogs, I try to keep an eye out for conservative messages that might have a chance of registering with those of the leftest mind-set. It’s not easy to get through to a leftest. When confronted with facts and information that is contrary to their view of the world, they automatically tune you out and begin thinking of nasty slurs they can through at you.

Just today Fox News’ web site had an article about the chaos in Greece with a headline “Could the U.S. be Next?” Also today my sister-in-law was astounded to find out that the Rev. Franklin Graham was not allowed at the pentagon prayer service. She doesn’t have cable and heard the news about Rev. Graham on the Focus on the Family radio broadcast.
