The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Speaker Pelosi the Political Left!

If anyone had doubts about the increased political polarization of our nation, the below video should remove them. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), one of the most liberal members of Congress, could hardly make herself heard as she spoke to an America's Future Now conference on Tuesday, This self-proclaimed "progressive" group is made up of far-left activists, so far to the left that many of them believe President Obama and Speaker Pelosi are just not liberal enough. So many people in the audience heckled Pelosi throughout her speech that it's almost impossible to make out what she's saying. According to press reports the protesters continued their loud heckling throughout the speaker's entire 28-minute speech. I find it interesting that this kind of boorish behavior always seems to come from the left. Leftists are not particularly "liberal" when it comes to allowing others to voice their opinions, and it takes an especially brave conservative to speak on a college campus these days. Now it seems that liberals too will be shouted down when they don't buy into the agendas of every far left group.

If you want to hear and see the "conversation" Pelosi tried to have with the protesters, check out this video on Real Clear Politics. I almost feel sorry for her.

What a country!
