The Left calls out moral blunders by the Right, with an expectation that Conservatives should behave better! Is it such a bad thing to expect the same from ourselves? If Conservatives were as moral as the Left requires us to be without their lashing out in a spasm of disapproval, there would be no double standard.
The most recent evidence of this use of the default “crazy” diagnosis by the Left wing of the American media, is found in the ATTEMPTED PRESIDENTIAL ASSASSINATION (that’s how the headlines should have read) by an Hispanic, likely illegal alien, Occupy D.C. 99 %er named Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, who fired shots at the White House with an assault rifle.
The Left speaks of “shared sacrifice,” which, to them means, that those who earn give of their property to support those who, for whatever reason, fail to earn. It is euphemistic for Collectivism, and because one must lose to another, with wealth being moved around but never created, this form of “sacrifice” is a lose, lose proposition.
The Occupy demonstrators first gathered to protest ______ (crony Capitalism, jock itch, soap companies), but now they have a new _____ (secretion, foe, hangnail). They are now battling ______ (Klingons, Jack Russell Terriers, illness) as their ranks become increasingly _____ (naked, diseased, fat and lazy).
We don’t really want to kill the zombies of the GOP, we just want to give them back their souls. We need every living conservative to win in 2012. Another loss to Obama would make the Zombie Apocalypse look like a Tea Party picnic.
There is a bright line that separates the Tea Party from the Occupy Movement. One has a devotion to order, civility, virtue, and above all, self-governance. The other seeks to provoke cities and states to the edge of chaos, stands for the disenfranchisement of property owners, and advances a free-for-all economic system in which everyone gets something for free, but there is no one to produce the free stuff.
Mourning has its part, for what is joy if not the fullness of all things; the bitter and the sweet, pain and convalescence, the boisterous sunrise and the blushing sunset, the burden of youth, and the absolution of the soul that learned how to live.
