“I believe abortion is a bad, evil thing; therefor, everyone in the world must live by MY beliefs with no room for anyone else’s to be considered!” ARROGANT!
“I’m a GOOD citizen! All those slackers and deadbeats need to stop being disabled and poor and get minimum wage jobs that won’t pay the rent instead of asking for handouts!” ARROGANT!
“Insurance providers should not cover birth control! If she wants to have sex she should take care of it herself!” I THOUGHT YOU DIDN’T LIKE ABORTION OR WELFARE! THINK IT THROUGH! YOUR WAY MEANS MEN CAN’T HAVE SEX, EITHER! THINK IT THROUGH!
“Let’s dump this industrial/mining/nuclear waste into the local water supply. It won’t affect anyone. At least not in our generation.” THINK IT THROUGH!
“Why so many industrial regulations about pollution? All these rules keep costs up!” AND POLLUTION DOWN! THINK IT THROUGH!
I could keep going. There’s a really long list of problems with the modern conservative policies. And then there’s the oh-s0-witty comebacks. “Obama put a short term slow-down on ONE type of visa from ONE country after some people were found to be improperly screened until better screening practices could be put in to place! That’s the same thing as Trump’s ban on ALL travel from SEVEN countries where no credible threats against America have ever been found.” NOT THE SAME THING! AT ALL! PLUS it’s a wonderful recruiting tool for our enemies overseas. Pictures of babies in handcuffs is not a way to make new friends!
And how about that pending war with China? Yeah, that looks like it’s going to be a nuclear blast!
Personally, I like having breathable air and drinkable water and food that doesn’t make me sick and the ability to choose what religion I want to be part of, if any at all. When I was having trouble with uterine fibroids, I’m grateful my insurance covered birth control pills to help regulate the growth of the tumors and the associated bleeding and PMDD even though I was infertile at the time.
Seriously, people! Actions have consequences! Think it through! I know it’s hard and it sucks but we can’t live in an overreactionary state. It is harmful to everyone, the planet included.
Now, the problem with modern liberals is they want to work with everyone and compromise. It’s obviously ineffective and makes them weak. On some of these issues there can be no compromise. We NEED water. We NEED air. We NEED access to birth control. We NEED to accept that everyone is different and has different beliefs and telling someone they have to live by YOUR beliefs is arrogant and idiotic. Do you want someone telling you you have to live by their beliefs? No, you don’t. I see your memes all the time on that issue, too. “Your religion can’t influence laws that affect my life but mine HAS to write laws about YOUR life!” ARROGANT! And the whole reason why our U.S. Constitution has that whole establishment clause thing about the separation of church and state.
Until we come together and decide to help each other and stop using our religious texts to bully each other and realize we NEED a healthy planet to live on, things are just gonna get uglier from here.
May all the Gods and Goddesses help us. One may not be enough this time.
