Extended warranties and lies

When’s the last time you purchased an electronic device and while at the check-out counter you were asked if you’d like the extended coverage?  “For an additional $50 you can insure your device for two years.”  Like most people we pass on that extra expense.  The logic goes like this:  if I continue to forgo this cost, I’ll save enough over the history of my purchases to cover the eventual moment when the cat uses the laptop as a litterbox.

Lying can be just like that.   How many lies perpetrated successfully make it worth the risk if you only get caught once or twice?

Telling the truth is like buying the extended warranty coverage.  It may require an immediate price but it provides longer term assurance that it won’t cost you in a much bigger way later.

Every time Hillary opens her mouth she seems pre-programmed to lie.   If caught it’s just a miss-remembered event, a concussion-induced memory lapse, a poorly worded answer, stupid people that didn’t understand her or a what-difference-at-this-point-does-it-make moment.

Perhaps Hillary should begin investing in integrity’s extended warranty program and become pathological at telling the truth.

The devil made them do it

Devil

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.
