Got in to a bit of a heated debate with an extremely liberal family friend. He's one of those people who is NEVER wrong (as if) . I don't particularly like discussing things with him because of that fact, plus, we never seem to agree. It's frustrating knowing people that advocate rights being stripped from others.
