This is how conservatives live. There even is a republican real estate company.

This is how some progressive liberals live:

What do you expect when Democrats currently make a practice of calling Republicans "Deplorables" or "Despicable"? That is a hostile and discriminatory statement. How can you blame them for not sticking around?

Many liberals preach being open and accepting or at least tolerant of other people's views - yet they regularly seem to consider the people on the other side of the isle as 'deplorables' or 'despicable'. If someone voiced that people of a different color or race were deplorables - the liberals would be up at arms. If someone voiced that people of a different religious belief were deplorables, liberals would schedule mass demonstrations. If someone claimed that that LGBTQ (more accurately LGBTTTQQIAA ) are despicable, liberals would start mass riots. How is a different general point of view any different than a different take/belief on sexuality, or religion? Isn't the liberal stance on so called 'deplorable' Republicans kind of hypocritical?

To take another look at it, the positives that the community offers:

  • No graffiti, no trash laying around.
  • No loud music invading other people's space.
  • Low to no crime.
  • High quality schools.
  • Safe to the point where it is comfortable to leave somethings unlocked - like it was in many places during the 1960s or earlier.
  • 5 bedroom, 4 bath house, approx 3,000+ sq ft house, 1/3+ acre lot for less than $400,000.
  • Able for a family to function as a single wage earner/single income - more traditional. This allows for young children to have access to a parent almost any time of the day - no latch-key kids, and less financial stress.
  • 1/3+ acre lots - a lot of room for kids to safely play and develop instead of glued to a TV screen or video game. 3,000sq foot house also allows some play for kids inside.

    Sounds kind of nice from the above list. One aspect I worry about is Mc Kinney, TX becoming an 'echo chamber' for a specific type of view, though ironically, San Francisco/Silicon Valley has already become an echo chamber for their own types of views - isolating themselves from ideas outside of their own. It is almost overtly hostile to conservatives (Undercover Conservatives). This is part of a series called Divided We Code. First segment Sexual Harassment; Power, Money, Harassment even demonstrates how this liberal bastion is even contradicting their own beliefs on equality.

    So at this point, to head off the proverbial name-calling, a little bit about myself;

  • Tend to vote Republican, but not always. My S.O. is a Democrat. (Yes, we are living in so-called 'sin' - what's it to you? Yes, we also have differing points of view - but why would that be a problem? Have you read Yevgeny Zamyatin's 'We'? George Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four'?(ref also to 'thought police'), what about the movie Equilibrium? )
  • I'm white, she's not (What? Why would that be wierd? Are you a racist?).
  • My degree is EECE with a lot of Physics and Math with a minor in Business Management. In highschool, I pulled perfect AP test scores in Math and Physics. She is a Communications major. (so why do you consider me a deplorable ignorant?)
  • I'm agnostic-Protestant, she's Catholic. (yes, a Republican can exist that is not a Holy Roller)
  • Our parents in both cases, have military service in their backgrounds (fathers). Both mothers have been teachers.

    -- so as you can see - not so cut and dry, black and white. An interesting side note is that she wanted us to move to Texas....

    Some people may find the info useful.
    I have been to Frisco, TX. McKinney Must be near there. I’ll look later on google maps.

    I just wish we could stop labeling each other/ ourselves liberal/ conservative. It is soooooo childish and not factually descriptive of what we actually do.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, No, most people aren't responding to the political threads you try to stir up with the exception of maybe spdrun.

    The few times people do respond to your threads isn't really because they want to engage in any meaningful dialogue because they know there won't be any. Most of the time they respond is out of ridicule for your addiction to political dribble on a real estate blog, thinking you really have an audience. But hey, I understand... Some people are alcoholics, others are drug users, and others are political-troll-on-real-estste-blog crack addicts.

    I would have a lot more respect if you actually had guts to camp out on FoxNews.com or Breitbart.com and tried to troll and stir up things there. But you'd rather camp out here, where 95% of the people don't give a shit, unless it's it's related to

    1. housing
    2. finance
    3. money
    4. taxes

    and only if it's something new that you didn't grep err, I mean Google from cnn.com where we've already seen it, days ago ..

    You'll deny it, but you know deep down then only reason why you are here is to try to stir things up. and unfortunately, you suck at it.

    When I felt like trolling a conservatard forum awhile ago as a fake liberal, I would rack up 100 negative downvotes in less than 25minutes before I got banned with one handle. And my record was about the dsme when I was trolling some of your far left liberals camp at as a far right conservstsrd before I could get banned from a handle and until they eliminated the comments section there completely...I wore those excessive downvotes like an honor badge. The more downvotes the more glorious it was. I doubt you could even come close to that. There's an art to pissing people off if you really want to. And I've mastered it. I've have mastered pissing people off, that I've even pissed off insurance adjusters that initially refused to pay me anything for damages until I wore them down to a pulp.l, and then they pretty much gave me what I wanted ... and more....twice.....within the same year...You sir, arent even close... Sorry, that's the truth.

    I too am getting very tired of the political dribble. I was guilty of this for a while, and stopped. Brian, what say you?

    It would only be hypocritical if that were actually why liberals call deplorables deplorable. Liberals don’t call deplorables deplorable because deplorables have a different point of view from us. We don’t call all republicans deplorables. Just the deplorable ones. The racists and the misogynists and the homophobes. And also...

    I, personally, think that at least 72% of republicans are deplorable. A 2018 Quinnipiac poll showed that 72% of republicans think that trump is a good role model for children. If you think that someone who constantly lies, who cheats, who never takes responsibility for his mistakes or the problems he causes, who stiffs his contractors, who cheats on all his wives, who cares about nothing and nobody but himself, who is petty, petulant, bellicose, ignorant, lazy, impulsive, delusional, amoral, unstable, and vindictive, who is a racist and a misogynist and a bully and a narcissist is a good role model for children, then I think you’re deplorable. If you think that's the kind of person our children should look up to and emulate, then I think you're deplorable. And that’s got nothing to do with you having “a different general point of view” from me.

    Of course. People don’t have a choice what color they are. They do have a choice whether to be racist or not. They do have a choice of what kind of role model they think our children should have.

    That depends. If their religious beliefs involved murder and child rape, I'm pretty sure liberals wouldn't object to them being called deplorable. If their beliefs involved “a different general point of view,” then yes, liberals would object to them being called deplorable.

    I presume you’re exaggerating for effect with the “mass riots” comment. Otherwise, you’ve been watching too much fox.

    Anyway, a different sexual orientation isn’t the same as being a racist or a misogynist or thinking that a “man” like trump is a good role model for children.

    A different general point of view isn’t any different from a different take/belief on sexuality (unless you start being deplorable towards those with different sexualities), or religion. But a different general point of view isn’t why liberals call deplorables deplorable.

    As expected, McKinney is near Frisco, just north east.
    Some people like that kind of lifestyle. There are some big companies nearby. Good opportunity to get a transfer if one is sick of California.

  • My liberal friends would kill me..... but I hate graffiti, drugs and criminal behavior.
    I like gentrifying neighborhoods over the urban grittiness. Like North Park for example but it’s gentrifying way too slowly. We need faster growth, tear down the old houses and build-high density.

    No it’s not back and white. When social scientists or trend watchers talk about demographics, they do have to generalize and ascribe descriptive adjectives. It’s not specific to anyone.

    As for Mc Kinney, in 30 years’ time, the demographics will have changed, just like Orange County that was once a refuge from LA has changed. McKinney is close enough to a big metro that it will eventually be absorbed into the greater metropolitan culture.

    It sounds like my kind of place. Do they have good golf courses? Gas $2.00 a gallon? No wealth redistribution attitude?
