    Lots of philosophy crammed into two small spaces

    These two, short sentences tell you a lot about our government and our culture:

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics,
    but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

    Funny how that works.

    And here's another one worth considering.
    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
    How come we never hear about welfare running out of money?

    What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't....

    Think about it.....
    Spread my work ethic, not my wealth.

    Shall we continue? Each poster think of one good example. Think fast, the easy ones will go fast.
    1. Gun owners or potential gun buyers have had to submit to all kinds of infringments and id and background checks, but to validate eligible voters, no proof of citizenship or picture id is required as it may disenfranchise a few of the undead democrat voter base.

    People who kill animals (NO, not LASSIEEEE!!!!) go to prison. People who molest and rape children go on a list.

    If you previously resided in the state of NY, with no state issued ID or driver's license, you can live in TN for several years without any form of identification to prove you're not a Mexican (being short, dark haired, dark eyed, tan, and partially Native not helping). However, should you decide you want TN ID, you need a TN driver's license; to get a TN driver's license, you need a bank statement addressed to you; to get a bank account, you need a TN ID and a voter's card; to get a voter's card, you need a bank statement addressed to you...and around and around we go...it took nearly three weeks to get the proper piece of mail; magazines, "junk mail", etc., are not acceptable. Neither is a notarized paper from your lawyer verifying your address.
    And let us not forget that a birth certificate and SS card does not count, because they are easily forged, as I was informed by the bank manager, the voting office, and a couple of other city officials.
    Oh, but if I go down to the police station, I can have them pull my record to verify my identity.
    Wow! Thanks so much! That would be great, IF I HAD A CRIMINAL RECORD; and if I did, I'm sure I would want to take THAT venue to getting proper identification.
    ...But a bank loan does the trick. How did I get a bank loan, you might wonder? I have nooo idea...around and around we go...

    P.S- I was also told at the bank when I could not get an account opened with my birth certificate and SS card, I COULD go online using those pieces of information and get a credit card, which would then allow me to open a bank account, and which would also send me a monthly bill which would verify my address to get state ID.
