We Do Laugh ... at Liberals 

Pin It
As a conservative comrade of Russ Milham [“Can You Buy a Sense of Humor?” June 10, City Weekly], I want to set things straight.

To say that conservatives don’t have a sense of humor isn’t entirely true. And, I was somewhat disappointed to find out you can’t buy one, but thanks for letting me know.

We do find things hilarious, such as the liberal concept of health care: Socialize it, and then the quality of health care we would receive would be extremely laughable. Better yet, let’s go all the way and socialize everything, and we can all laugh our a$$es off ... all the way to the bread line.

But seriously, not all conservatives are that extreme. As for my own conservative self, I have a bad habit of seeing both sides of the story. I hope your sense of humor can help you shrug this off, and you can realize that this is just an innocent jab.

In the end, you are right, we all need to take a step back and get a good chuckle from things every now and then.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
