Republican Logic

What You Need To Believe To Be A Republican:

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, but providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is a impeachable offense, but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

Supporting "Executive Privilege" for every Republican ever born, who will be born or who might be born (in perpetuity.)

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

Support hunters who shoot their friends and blame them for wearing orange vests similar to those worn by the quail.

more fun in american politics

conservatives can reconcile some pretty weird things, case in point -- people in the current administration let leak that valerie plame was cia agent and conservatives behave as though it was no big deal to out one of it's soldiers in war time.

but get this http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/
a secret source told the reporters over at abc news to "get new cell phones now" because the govn't is trying to find confidential sources.



so what is republican big guys? is it okay to leak confidential informaiton to the press or not? make up your mind, you're waffling worse than john kerry.

 

death and taxes on holiday

in the freewheeling world wide web, a dose of reality is rarely as real as when the taxman comes to call.

several tourist destinations filed suit against the big boys of internet travel for their failure to pay hotel taxes.

we all know the travel sites negotiate a better deal on the rooms than we the consumer are pay at their sites, and that works well because it's almost always cheaper than buying direct.

however, what the suit alleges is that the big boys have only been paying tax based on the rate that they paid, and not on the rate that the sold at.

this will be an interesting issue to watch

we should continue to pray for the sick regardless its efficacy

the human consciousness includes a conscience that grows out of the fact that our preferred social structure (i.e. civilization) depends on humans acting, well, civil to one another. our survival instincts tell us that those who do harm to other individuals or to society as a whole, are doing harm to us, and we ascribe the labels good and bad to civil and uncivil behavior.

religion grows out of the fact that non-human things like plants, animals and natural phenomenon don't seem to share our desire to protect humans. to wit, bears don't mind eating people, and even though tornados do seem to target trailer parks, in general, nature is deaf to the pleas of humanity.

our pea brains have to come up with an explanation for why corn won't grow when you want it to.

enter god.

throughout human history we have prayed for rain, prayed for the rain to stop, etc. and whether or not it works, we still do it, because it gives us a sense of control over a world that is not so infatuated with humans as we are.

since nature doesn't care about us, and at times seems out to get us, and since there are humans that seem to act more like animals than humans, having a god that is more powerful than nature and humanity is very comforting indeed.

that being said, praying for some to be healed never hurt anyone, and it does make people feel good, so why would you discourage it?

that's just godless. hahahahahahahaha!

it just never stops, does it?

http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/journalgazette/news/nation/politics/14177032.htm


my thought:
every conservative i have ever spoken with at some point explains to me that the constitution is not a living document; that it is to be interpreted precisely in its words; and that judges who set precedents that conservatives don't like are 'activist judges'

odd, then that conservatives can so casually overlook this egregious disregard of the cornerstone of the republic.

my, how quickly the conservative congressmen and women roll over and play dead for the president, abdicating their role within our government, forever eroding the importance of elected representation of the american citizenry.

this behavior is both cynical and shameful, and if you don't feel like you've been slapped in the face, then you really need to re-read the constitution, and re-evaluate what it means to be an american.

if bill clinton had pulled this stunt, every conservative in amerca would be in the streets with pitchforks and torches, and to believe otherwise is flagrant equivocation.
