Yup… it annoys the bejabbers outta me too. But ‘that’s different’ when it comes to the left. GRRRRRRRRRRR
Oh yeah….I do think it’s an important issue. Unfortunately, the real world has been invading my computer world, and I just really haven’t had much time to do any in depth examination. One of these days, I’ll get back to being my ol’ butt sitter self.
I can assure you that politics is not the only realm where double standards exist. If I may I would like to tell a story. When I was in high school there was this guy named John who used to pick on me. Behind his back I called him a jerk, this other girl named Amber heard what I said and got outraged and called me a jerk. This other guy who picked on me named David, called this girl Ann the B word behind her back and Amber heard him say it but all she said was “Why? What did she do to you? In a calm voice.” If that’s not a double standard then tell me what it is.
As for the Supreme Court ruling, Ben Franklin is rolling over in his grave.
PS: I know you are a Christian, and there is as verse somewhere in Deuteronomy that tells us to use only one system of measurement with one another, and no I don’t mean like the American versus the metric system, that’s different. Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small. Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light. You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you” THat’s DET book 25 versus 13-15.
Do I condemn Rush Limbaugh for his recent comments? Yes I do, but I also condemn Bill Mahr and anybody else who sinks to such a level. I don’t hold any double standard.
Been gone most of the day, and actually played gardener this evening. I may need a crane to get me out of bed tomorrow. I ACHE! Heh.
Yep…quite familiar with the passage. In the Torah, that subject is covered several times.
Ok, here’s my take on the Rush thing… Yeah, he probably should have chosen his words a bit better, and he did apologize. BUT….the woman who was referred to as a four lettered word put herself out there, and in my opinion, sounded like one. In front of Congress, the country, and the world. She is actually a leftist activist, not the regular ‘student’ as she was presented. Seriously, 3K a year for contraception? $4 a month at Wal-Mart. Condoms for free. Don’t they charge like $300 for an abortion at Planned Parenthood? That would be a lot of murdered babies every year.
As for people like Maher, they call conservative women horrible names with NO reason, or indication what they have called them has any basis in fact.
She evidently, as I said before, has the lib ‘mentality’. Oh, I know there are some on the right who do the same thing….double standards and all that….but not nearly to the degree the left does. Besides, it’s not our job to judge . Best thing you could do….look her in the eye and tell her you forgive her for not realizing that her words are hurtful, and that you will pray for her.
