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…..
