Get out of my bedroom, but be in the boardroom, and other inconsistencies

on August 13, 2007

Obob’s thought for a Sunday morning got me thinking, especially Thought Uno,

“I am confident that the hottest places in hell are reserved for the souls
of sick and brutal people who hold God’s creatures in such brutal and cruel
contempt,” he (Sen. Byrd) said.

He’s referring to dog fighter’s not those who provide the warm and fuzzy
service called partial birth abortion.


Why is it that we are appalled by cruelty to animals, but not equally outraged by the dismembering of an unborn child in his mother’s womb? How come we find mutilating a corpse disgraceful, but mutilating a living being in a womb acceptable? Hell, isn’t it even a crime to tamper with a grave, and yet sending an unborn child to a garbage dump is a-okay?

What is the role of government anyway? Is it not meant to provide for the common defense? Then why is the world would we wish to reduce the budget at the Pentagon, without at least looking first to all the other budgets that have no Constitutional basis? But the backward thinking of the average lefty is to slash that defense budget first and foremost, but do keep that federal money pumping into the public broadcast system! We’d have no TV shows otherwise!

Further illogical ideas: the liberals who denounce free market capitalism. They say how dare the Wal Mart heirs get money for doing nothing but sitting on their butts. Nevermind the fact that they get said money from you and I paying for items at Wal Mart which we consume. But the lefties have no problem giving welfare money to people sitting on their butts doing nothing, where you and I give our money in taxes and get NOTHING in return for that money we gave. Meanwhile the lefties ignore the fact that the Walton family has a foundation, and that Wal Mart has programs that also give back to the community.

To those who despise the free market, they want the government to impose itself by regulating businesses. Oh, but these same people say don’t you dare tell me what I can do in my own home! Well I say, if you want the government out of your bedroom, then they also should stay out of the boardroom. You can’t have the government impose when it fits your agenda, unless you allow it to impose where it fits mine.

Feel free to add some of your own inconsistencies if you wish, I may add more later myself.

Well, it didn’t take me long to think of another frustrating idea. Some on both the left and right want to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, citing that these people just want to make a living for themselves. Yet, they deny the right to unborn children to make a living EVER. So, just because these illegal people are HERE in this country, they should just automatically be granted citizenship, but a child in the womb of an American woman is HERE (and always has been) in this country but is not a citizen until born.

Okay, something else that bugs me. When scientists come up with a theory, it’s like gospel truth for some people, but if other scientists who come up with opposing theories they are wrong. Why can’t people accept that the opposing view could be the accurate one?
