"THE LAND OF HYPOCRISY"
“All men are created equal”. After that, they’re on their own! Just like you and me. No government can legislate “Fairness” despite what people tell you.
Think about it.
There are actually events which occur and decisions we make in each of our individual lives that will separate us financially, educationally perhaps even criminally, from other segments of the population. Sometimes, it’s nothing we did. Sometimes, good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. Welcome to life on Planet Earth! Fair, unfair or otherwise life is what YOU make it; not what the government makes it. Not yet....
“At this auspicious period, the United States came into existence as a nation, and if their citizens should not be completely free and happy, the fault will be entirely their own”. - George Washington , or the guy that offered up his life and honor thus ensuring our freedom and great nation.
If I were President, I would open EVERY speech with that!!! Then DARE someone to argue with me. I would do that everyday! Everyday until they got it!
Now, I know, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams and George Washington were no Al Gore, George Bush (1or2), Clinton (1or2), Cheney or Teddy Kennedy, but I like to believe they were U.S. statesmen with enough smarts to know what they were doing.
You know, after having just lived under and then viciously defeating one of the most oppressive Empires in history. They weren’t afraid of not having medical care or public assistance. They were afraid of BIG GOVERNMENT! Never forget, the scariest words in the English Language: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”!
Here’s a couple of many widely overlooked examples of hypocrisy relating to the Federal Government that everybody loves to hate:
Government should stay out of private finances EXCEPT when CEO’s or large companies are making ‘too much money in the wrong way’.
Dumb Blond Example: A man earning hundreds of millions of dollars from marketing movies and video games to our society about war and violence is good, a man earning hundreds of millions of dollars as CEO from running Home Depot to provide products to millions of consumers is bad and is making ‘too much money in the wrong way” according to some politicians. James Cameron earned hundreds of millions from The Terminator series alone. Where’s his condemnation?
All men are created equal EXCEPT the stupid ones.
Apparently many Americans are basically stupid idiots and politicians, the wiser, good and decent people, should limit stupid people’s access to certain restaurants, foods, habits, words and religion for their own good and benefit of all.
Dumb Blond Example: A Los Angeles Councilwoman wants to limit her constituents access to fast food restaurants since she doesn’t believe they have the sense to eat ‘healthy’. I guess she figures they vote okay though. Some politicians want to censor the word ‘faggot’ used by Isaiah Washington and repeated by Ann Coulter. Perhaps Isaiah Washington picked it up from the sitcom “Will & Grace” which averaged 19.7 million viewers who were apparently not offended by the repetitive use of the word ‘faggot’ during prime time network television or now when it airs at 11AM and 11:30AM on The Lifetime Channel Monday through Friday. I guess the word should be censored at all times and everywhere EXCEPT during prime time and morning television programming.
