Having breakfast with my wife at resort we were staying at in Portland, OR for a friends' wedding. At the table next to us was about 5 or 6 people, one of which I found out rather quickly to be a total liberal a-hole. Their conversation is easily heard by my wife and I. He starts talking about Katrina, looting, police being shot at, etc and it isn't too bad at this point. Next he proceeds to bitch about how if Bush hadn't dumped so much money into Iraq then they're might be more money to help these people. Next comes his philosophy about the war in Iraq, and how he's for fighting terrorism but Iraq and 9/11 are 2 totally diferent things. Typical liberal BS. My wife and I are rolling our eyes the entire time.

After we left I was really pissed at myself for at least not telling this guy to keep his opinion to himself while I'm trying to eat. I then think of my Marine buddy who fought in Fallujah and risked his life to protect the right of this a-hole to spout off this nonsense. I should have said something. What do you guys think?

You're probably right. We love visiting there, but it's a land filled w/ nuts and fruits.

It's better that you didn't. It would more than likely have escalated and you aren't going to convince him of anything anyway.

I think you should have let him know that you disagree with what he's saying, and that you find his comments disrespectful to you, your marine buddy, and all the troops over seas. As politely as possible, you should have just told him that the political talk is disrupting the celebration, your evening, and the meal.

Theres too much hate out there when it comes to politics and partisanship. Everyone seems to get mad at each other. America is about freedom of speach, and we just need to accept that people have varrying opinions.

Why let it raise your blood pressure and escalate to a yelling match when its a helluva lot less agrevating to just ask the other person to drop it.

On behalf of the citizens outside of Portland (And I mean only 20 miles), I'm sorry.

Don't say a thing. I hear this shit a lot where I live. You not going to convince these kind of people.

Frankly, the best you should have done was to grab the waitress and ask, rather loudley...

"Pardon me, ma'am...would it be possibly to have another table prepared for my wife and myself as far away as possible from that blathering asshole?"

If you say it loudly enough you'll likely get other clientele to clap and hoot. You were likely not the only customer to be pissed off. Bonus is getting another table away from liberal mouth breather.

Like a Granola bar. Get rid of the fruits, flakes and nuts and you got nothing left.

Wasn't worth the effort or oxygen.

Was he a stinky hippe or a tatooed freakshow? I wonder who was paying for his food.
If only we could have a similar disaster up here, it might thin the herd a bit. 50% of the population would kill each other for meth and smokes, cops/feds/citizens would croak another 25%. We'd have a few empty buildings, but Portland could use a good flush.
