10 Questions

Many humble thanks to Wendy Gittleson at Addicting Info

1. ‘Why is it that when people hoard things, they are a scourge on society and when they hoard money, they are job creators? In fact, aren’t the people that buy things the true job creators’?

2. ‘Both the 10 Commandments and the Seven Deadly Sins have no mention of being gay or having abortions. Greed, though, seems to be a biggie. Why do conservatives seem to get that backwards’.

3. ‘At what point did getting sick become a moral failing’?

4. ‘In what way are people who buy and sell paper making a more significant contribution to society than teachers, nurses, firefighters, police officers, mail carriers, artists, etc’?

5. ‘When did the right to unlimited profit become greater than the general welfare of the people’?

6. ‘Why don’t people realize that there’s no such thing as a “self made man?” Even the most successful and ethical people can thank their parents, their teachers, their siblings, their employees, their customers, the government, their contractors, etc. Without them, they would be nothing’?

7. ‘Why is physical labor less important than sitting behind a desk’?

8. ‘Why should people who inherit their money not pay taxes and people who earn their money be taxed at the highest rate’?

9. ‘At what point did we start judging people based on the size of their checkbook rather than the size of the heart’?

10. ‘How has being a conservative helped you’?

Somewhere In America People Elected This Person

‘Today [NH state] Rep. Jeanine Notter (R-Merrimack), who sits on the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee, caught our attention once again with another of her “Notter Notions”. During a hearing on late-entry House Resolution 29, urging the United States Department of Health and Human Services to rescind its rule requiring health plans to cover preventative services for women such as contraceptives, she told committee members that health plans shouldn’t cover birth control because it causes prostate cancer’.

‘For those of you keeping score at home, women don’t have prostates, men do’.
