Yeah the world is a mess. But who are they to enforce their idea of right and wrong on us all? They think in black and white terms, but it is never
Welfare is not rewarding laziness. Sure there are those who use it to avoid working, but not everyone who claims it is lazy. Its a dangerous and
outright ignorant blanket statement which does no good for those who are genuinely in need of welfare. Welfare is actually a progressive policy, which
shows how far we have gone since the days where those who fall on hard times starved and went homeless.
As for abortion, if you do not want to kill your own children then that is your choice. You have no rights whatsoever to judge anyone else for
aborting their unborn children. You have no idea of the circumstances, you cannot apply a blanket judgment on everyone.
Shooting anti-abortionists is bad yes, they have the right to their opinions after all, regardless of how ill informed they are. Surely tho they
should be educated rather than shot, and if they break any laws, then the appropriate penalty is applied to them.
There is a fine line between discipline and abuse, and in days gone by it was crossed without impunity. I agree though that anti-abuse laws can cause
fear of reprisals when a child is disciplined. There needs to be some sort of balance, but surely it is better to err on the side of caution rather
than beat the crap out of kids for trivial matters.
Who decided certain words are "bad" anyway? Why, for example, is feces perfectly acceptable while # is not? Its nothing more than people making up
rules to control people.
As for the abuse of power and exploitation of the poor, I agree. But, thats the bit of unadulterated truth added in to make the message more
appealing. Take this out and the message reveals its true colours.
"One nation under god". Something you have never ceased to be. Your nation was founded by an invasion force, slaughtering the natives in the
process. Which is exactly the same way Israel came to be in the Old Testament. They ruled through fear and violence, just like the USA rules the world
now. Your god will be proud of you, why would it want you to change a thing?
