Random thoughts from the past twelve months:
Muslims. Perplexing to see how the liberals embrace Muslims and denounce conservative Americans as xenophobes and bigots. It’s as if they prefer Muslims over Christians. Republicans and Christians, to the best of my recollection, do not believe the practice of stoning gays, rape victims, and adulterous women is the revealed word of God, the way fifty percent of all Muslims do. (Pew Research Center, The World’s Muslims: Religion, Politics and Society.)
The first people to be destroyed under the caliphate will be liberals.
Maybe conservatives should rethink their stance on importing refugees from Muslim countries?
Gun Control. Popular liberal stance: We need mandatory safety training for all gun buyers.
You know, that’s not a bad idea. Let’s start in first grade, make gun training part of the school curriculum every two years. Every school child in America gets two hours per week weapons training, focusing first on the safe and correct operation of all manner of firearms. This would prevent many of the needless deaths from curious children playing with found weapons, plus take away their fascination with a deadly tool. You learn how not to hit your thumb with a hammer in shop class, why not learn how not to shoot your foot off in gun class?
And let’s add one more level of protection: In order to graduate, every student should be required to undergo a six week boot camp, including physical training, weapons training, and the correct and proper use of force. Swear everyone in as a de facto militia, thus ending this idiotic argument over what the founders meant by the Second Amendment.
Donald Trump. The man’s a clown. Sorry fellow conservatives, but he’s a nut job. The sooner we stop cheering his cute little spoiled child routine and focus on real issues, the sooner we can move on to stopping the liberal freight train.
Gun Control, again. Background checks are a red herring. Yes, we need to do them because not doing them is stupid, but don’t think for a second that background checks will deter gun violence. None, absolutely none, of the mass shooters in recent history had an issue with background checks, either because they had no record, or they used a straw buyer.
Death of the GOP. 2015 is the year the Republican Party abandoned conservatives. They not only approved a two year budget that removes spending caps, they approved a 1.3-trillion dollar omnibus spending bill that funds everything Obama wants. They failed to stop the (Un)Affordable Care Act. They failed to end taxpayer funding for fetal destruction. They aided and abetted Executive Action on immigration. They keep trotting out milquetoast candidates like John McCain, Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, and Jeb Bush. (And Lindsey-f*ing-Graham.)
Sadly, the list goes on.
Just like the Democratic Party has abandoned the blue-collar worker, the Republican Party has abandoned their principals of smaller government, less regulation, and protection of the American people.
The next liberal bitching about the Republicans needs to STFU. The Republicans in office are your best friends.
