Liberal/Conservative

When reading BIAS, I highlighted important parts that I identified. First of all, I didn't understand what these terms meant until I looked them up on www.dictionary.com

Liberal -- Not to literal or strict, easy going, careless, free to say/do whatever.

Conserative -- keeping everything neat/perfect, strict, one who favors traditional values and views.

Affirmative action -- reaching out to bring more minorities into the process.

I enjoyed Goldberg's example for affirmative action, " 'Legacies'-- kids, almost always white, who get accepted by a college because mommy or daddy went there twenty-five years earlier." I enjoyed his political and social views and he is defintely a liberal, I love how he states his opinions freely and can careless about anyone's opinion.

Also his example on welfare as being necessarily for people, but people are taking advantage of it. This is still an issue today in our society. My stinking money that I earn is going to people who live on welfare... its funny to see wrecked old looking houses with a Ford truck that is $30,000 parked outside of the shack.

Practically conservatives are for the upperclass workers. And the liberals are for the blue-collared, I don't give a F*** workers.
