I don't get how people can expound Christian values and then refuse to provide funding to help people. "The Lord helps those who help themselves" only goes so far."
I also don't get how a group of people can be anti sex education, anti free condoms, anti-abortion (hey, I don't like abortion either, however . . . ), then be anti women's health, anti WIC, anti free lunch, and in all other ways anti helping people with their children.
I don't get the current trend that seems to allow only one cause. A person on Fb wrote about a particular animal crisis. The friend replied in shouting capitals (I got that from Fifty Shades), "How can you support the plight of the _________ when children in ________ don't have a hot lunch." I believe most people can be and are sympathetic to more than one cause, and those who are able very likely fund more than one cause as well. And there is always United Way, which supports a variety of excellent causes.
I don't get that if I don't agree with you, I am, by definition, wrong, cursed, devilish, and very likely a Democrat.
I don't get how people can continually defame our duly elected president, going so far as to spread vicious lies and rumors. Vote at the polls, people. Then accept the consequences. I don't mean to imply that constructive criticism shouldn't happen, just not outright slander and lies. Grow up.
I admit to voting for Bush (hey, I was born in North Dakota and am therefore genetically republican—small r intentional). When he fell out of favor with me, I reregistered as an Independent, realizing that the republican party had moved far afield from what I erroneously believed were their core beliefs. I didn't, however, bad mouth the man. Nor did I forward unsubstantiated chain letters or emails.
We are in this together. Let's act like caring adults and settle our differences like ladies and gentlemen.
Feel free to politely disagree. Or you could even agree with some of my points. (Sorry if I offended you. That isn't my intent.)
