74. thanks, I usually don't have alot of time....

 

I have dealt with batshit crazy conservatives and religious nutcases for years...my family has a fair share of both. The one common trait is their ability to be hypocritical while feigning sincerity. I usually call them out on it much to their displeasure and pretty much shut them up. If you want to preach a way to live in front of me, its best that YOU live that way yourself first.

I had a neighbor for years you never spoke of govt in any kind of good light...of course he was a state worker, his wife got her college degree thru federal and state grants and loans, his kids got all sorts of tax credits for education, tax credits for earned income..all the typical support that people at the lower ends that need to have some assistance with. So when I pointed out the small discrepancy between what his "beliefs" are and what appears to rank hypocrisy...his reply was " We deserve them becasue we worked for it...." I nearly busted a nut when he said that. Obviously the sense of "entitlement" is twisted. Its good for me but not for thee is pretty typical.....
