Dear Mom and Dad,

Please stop listening to Glenn Beck and taking him seriously. Please stop repeating Glenn's talking points as though they're fact. Please stop saying things like "we should send [the detainees at Gitmo] back to their families in boxes with ribbons on them!" Please stop acting like Obama has ascended from Hell to murder us all. Please stop acting like the government is a single, monolithic force of pure evil. Please stop telling me what I believe since I'm a liberal. Please stop saying "liberal" like it's a filthy word. Please stop asking me if I have "buyer's remorse" as though I were singing Obama's praises when I've told you, time and time again, that I voted him for him because McCain and Palin were worse. Please stop being willing to trade your freedom in for "safety" while pretending that doing so is the best way of preserving freedom. Please stop being so gleeful when something goes wrong because it "proves" that everything is Obama's fault. Please stop saying that it's dangerous to try the Christmas bomber in a normal court, as though it being dangerous is the same as it being wrong. Please stop saying "interrogate" when you mean "torture." Please stop saying that we need to torture people to keep us safe. Please start being sane again ... I don't know how much more of this I can take.

-- Your daughter
