This President has a unique track record. He says ISIS isn’t a threat, then on that very day they attack Paris. Next he mocks Republicans by saying they’re afraid of women and orphans, then a deadly terrorist attack in California involving a woman.
We really shouldn’t think of orphans as a problem, but now we’re not so sure.
In response to the deaths San Bernardino, there was a noticeable difference in how those running for the office of President responded through Twitter.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the shooting victims and their families in San Bernardino.” Ben Carson
California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated?” Donald Trump
“Praying for the victims, their families & the San Bernardino first responders in the wake of this tragic shooting”. Jeb Bush
“My thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the shooting in San Bernardino, especially the first responders.” John Kasich
“Horrifying news out of #San Bernadino. Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the @NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.” Martin O’Malley
“I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now.” Hillary Clinton
“Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurre3nce in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.” Bernie Sanders
So in summary, if you’re a Republican candidate you offer condolences, concerns for those suffering and encouragement to law enforcement. If your a Democrat candidate you’re looking for what’s in it for yourself as a vote getting tool.
If the Democrats want to do something about gun violence there are plenty of places to start but empty rhetoric only says “look at me, I’m pounding my fist to show I care.” Since their bold statements imply that they know exactly the reason behind this tragedy then we’re all anxious to hear what brilliant piece of legislation would have prevented this horrible act in California, a state that already has some of the toughest gun regulations in the country. But maybe like climate change, talking about it is enough to stem the tide of all evils.
Here’s a sobering thought. Take one-sixth of the population and simply discard them. Horrifying, isn’t it? We’re doing that to those who have the potential to be part of the next generation. Here are some scary facts:
• For every 1000 live births in the United States, 210 abortions occur.
• One million souls each year perish due to abortion as a way to end an unwanted pregnancy.
• Half of all pregnancies in this country are unwanted.
Obama was certainly not talking about the ghastly rate of abortions when he said “Enough is Enough.” We only wish he was a fraction as concerned over the loss of life as shown by these statistics as he was over the abortion clinic shooting and subsequent tragic loss of life. Certainly we don’t condone violence as a way of protesting abortion. The monster who shot up the clinic must pay for his hideous crimes. We do, however, want to ensure that the cost, gravity and frequency of abortions are more thoroughly understood. Then maybe others will also think, “enough is enough.”
It’s amazing to us that some can blame the shooting at the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic on heat Republican candidates have put on the organization. Well for goodness sake, let’s not talk about the horrific acts that go on in those places and worse yet the cavalier attitude the personnel have when it comes to “harvesting” body parts. While we’re at it, we should also stop any further discussions of the WWII concentration camps. We wouldn’t want anyone to feel bad.
Just go ahead and emblazon the term “the devil made me do it” on the seal of the Democratic National Committee. Decadence, elimination of God, bowing to the environment as a god rather than the creator of the environment, and the general loathing for individual self-reliance are considered liberal traits by many. There’s an obvious similarity in values between liberals and the devil. Liberals seem to clearly believe that there should be a lack of moral consequences for the decisions we make in life and hence a lack of moral responsibility. The fact that there are over one million abortions a year is horrific. Throw in the fact that Planned Parenthood harvests body parts like their running an auto scrap yard is unconscionable.
The push by liberals to reduce individual self-reliance is significant. Without independence, government is free to grow at will, inflicting liberal collectivism upon society rather than individuality. Take home-school teaching as an example. Many liberals fume over the notion that education can be provided by parents without government interference or control. Another example is masculinity. We’ve seen the liberals’ definition of a man; a dainty, doe-eyed, child-like representation of an adult complete with hair gel, skinny jeans and a fanny pack. It’s not surprising that this is the picture that liberals want to paint. Boldness, masculinity, independence and family values reek of individual power.
And finally, compassion. Liberals have compassion but for some reason there’s more compassion for the criminals than for the victim. We guess that since the anti-God ideals and planks in their political platform, help create the criminals, the next logical action is to make excuses for them.
All of this points to a real similarity between liberals and the devil. Or at least makes the devil a big fan.
It appears as though Rahm Emanuel has continued Chicago’s long tradition of corruption. This boss waited a year before releasing the dash cam video and now the possibility of another video being deliberately disposed of. This smells as bad as all of those turkey carcasses that have been sitting in garbage cans for several days.
The Thanksgiving 2015 editions of both the Washington Post and the Washington Times covered some of the same traditional territory that all national papers seem inclined to cover. Two examples are Obama’s turkey pardoning and holiday traveling. Beyond that though, there’s a glaring difference in the tone and content of each paper’s coverage of this uniquely American holiday.
Below are the Thanksgiving-related articles from 11/26/15. A few more in the Times than the Post, which might not be startling. But in addition to having more content, there’s a decidedly brighter tone to the Times’ articles as a whole. Each Thanksgiving article listed in this table is highlighted in green if it had a positive, optimistic or heartwarming emphasis. It’s clear at a glance that the Times provided its readers with words of encouragement far beyond those of the Post. Also of note is the size difference in both papers; 54 pages vs 26.
In 54 pages the Post put a positive touch to only four of its articles related to Thanksgiving. Over three times the number of articles in the Times were positive (13) in a paper that was less than half the size.
All of this may be of no interest, but clearly one paper lives by the motto that “bad news sells” and hence not much room left for positive and uplifting content. If you want positive, you can always check out the Post’s horoscopes.
