A Lot of Truth Here !

I have been very frustrated by everything that has been going on in our nation, and in the world. In fact, it has me stressed out to the point where I can't even think clearly enough to write a proper rant about it all.

So, when my dad sent this little email to me, I had to share it . . .

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn`t buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.
If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a black or Hispanic are conservative, they see themselves as independently successful.
Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.
If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like be taken off the air.
If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)
If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.
If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.
If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.
If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

I didn't write this this list, so I must give full credit to Cy Cooper, President
Cy Cooper Company

He is just a regular guy who owns a small business

We all have our different viewpoints, different way of looking at the things in our lives that matter to each of us.

But I think he has pinpointed many of the things that have gotten so crazy.

Here is Webster's definition:

Part of the definition says: "one who favors greater freedom in political or religious matters"

Do you see the irony in that like I do?

I think a lot of these statements are unfair, and untrue. Does that make me a Liberal? Or just a human being? Found you via MBC.
