I try to not have my blog be political but sometimes I digress and this post is one of those times. Â I have made it no secret that I am politically conservative. Â I don’t think I am rabidly conservative but I am conservative nonetheless. Â If I had to pigeonhole myself I wouldÂ describeÂ my beliefs as Constitutionally Conservative with a side order or socialÂ conservatism. Â Here goes. Why is it that political discourse has become so dissonant? Â This question strikes me occasionally and it hit meÂ againÂ this morning.

IÂ madeÂ a comment and asÂ occasionallyÂ happens a liberalÂ trollÂ pops up and immediately starts with the insults. Â The entire comment thread that got me thinking is below:
Now what got me is the childish nature of the replies and of course IÂ stoopedÂ to such at the end because he succeeded in getting my goat.
