Everything thatís wrong with America in two sentences

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

Think about it…..

....."It turns out that someone I’ve known for yours is, in fact, a conservative. We were both pleasantly surprised to find that we had that in common. He recently forwarded me an email with two telling sentences.

I’ve seen both of these wandering around the internet, but for some reason their juxtaposition struck me as very powerful — or maybe it’s just that tonight Obama’s giving his SOTU, which I am not watching, and these thoughts counterbalance whatever malarkey he’s spouting. I’ll read what he has to say tomorrow. Reading is always better than that tight-ass, clipped, whiny hectoring.

Anywhere, here’s that email: “

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

And here’s another one worth considering.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

Think about it….." The Bookworm.......

A huge number of Americans don’t have the mental capacity to see the contradiction here.
The same ones who voted for 0.

Great points!

Scary about the 2d one is that a lot of folks think Social Security is welfare. Until they can collect Soc Sec...of course

I’m in a discussion on Facebook with some friends about the exact same thing.

These fake disagreements always point to the same thing ...the “war” isn’t based on facts ....it’s based on conflicting VALUES. The constant obfuscation and constant double standards are just a bunch of BS.

The war with us because they do not agree with us and never will.

One side WILL win. That is for sure. The sooner we decide which side we want to be on, the better.

I’d be willing to take 30 cents on the dollar of the money I’ve contributed in exchange for not having to contribute anything further.

Absolutely brillian! Worth reading it again:

“1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. “

Think about it…..

Thank you for the headsup!! It was truly brillianT (note the T) Took the time to read the entire thing. Truly brilliant.
One little problem in your post, though..
The suggestion to “THINK about it” is beyond the ability of all too many people.
