A Republican entered a restaurant in a wheelchair one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. He looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?”
The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.
The next patron to come in was a Libertarian with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus over there?”
The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to take Jesus a cup of hot tea. “My treat,” he said.
Another patron, a Democrat, came into the restaurant on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down and asked for a cold beer. He, too, looked across the restaurant and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?”
The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. “On my bill,” he said.
As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the strength surge back into his legs, got up, and danced a jig out the door.
Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Libertarian felt his back straightening up and he raised his hands, praised the Lord, and did a series of back flips out the door.
Then Jesus walked towards the Democrat, just smiling.
The horrified Democrat jumped to his feet and screamed, “Don’t touch me! I’m collecting disability!”
"(I)t is essential to use words accurately and in good faith…beware of those who seek to win an argument at the expense of the language. For the fact that they do is proof positive that their argument is false, and proof presumptive that they know it is. A man who deliberately inflicts violence on the language will almost certainly inflict violence on human beings if he acquires the power. Those who treasure the meaning of words will treasure truth, and those who bend words to their purposes are very likely in pursuit of anti-social ones. The correct and honourable use of words is the first and natural credential of civilized status.”

translation, rape is okay because bitches
Way to make the point of the Johnson quote.
Jack Webb Schools Obama.
President Obama has done a lot of things I dislike, but ruining Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with Obamacare talk is a bit much.
Smack down the liberal in your life who wants to propagandize for Obamacare with this…
Actually, yeah. It kind of does …
The point is that a baby is ALWAYS human, born or not.
Made of human pieces maybe
You’re confused, “human pieces” are the result of an abortion…not the before.
I’m actually quite interested. How do you THINK abortion works?
Well, abortion it’s the destruction of the life of an unborn human (duh)…are you asking because you’re mystified by that?
No, I was just curious to see if you were one of those misinformed people who believes that an abortion involves something brutal, painful or looks like a bloody room and fetal limbs.
Turns out I was wrong. You’re one of those misinformed people that believes zygotes are humans who deserve more rights than women. My bad.
Yeah, it is your bad to not understand life is an inalienable right, and that terminating life for convenience (aka murder) is not.
Really enjoyed Jay Leno’s interview with George W. Bush. Even though by the end of his presidency we all had major Bush fatigue he is a real class act, and it’s tough not to miss him when his successor has conducted his presidency like it’s amateur hour.
Coexist with bacon (get the sticker here)
You must’ve seen a post I’ve done that provoked this question. Which one? That will help focus this conversation a bit. because your argument is a bit of a straw man in that it rests on the premise that there are no able-bodied people taking advantage of the system and conservatives want to throw the baby out with the bath water. This position is totally and provably false on the former and flat out wrong on the latter.
So where are you coming from on this?
