Did You Ever Wonder….? Part 2

Why do some people think they can negotiate with someone whose religious doctrine advocates cutting off your head because you are not like them?

Why the appointees to the Palm Beach Commission should have to give their Social Security numbers, when all that is needed to be sworn in is a prison number?

Why are liberals in favor of “special” advantages for others, only if they are sure that they won’t have to sacrifice as a result of giving those “special” advantages to someone else?

Why can’t we have a U.S. Congressman, to represent us here in the Delray/Boca area, who lives here in Florida and not in Maryland?

Why it would be a calamity for the Canadian people if we, as a country, opted for “Universal Health Care”, because then they wouldn’t have anyplace to go to get quality, timely health care which they can get now?

Why is racial discrimination, even in the interest of remediation, inclusion, or diversity, still racial discrimination, which is immoral, unconstitutional, and un-American?

Why don’t our government leaders realize that our present system of Social Security is just another “Ponzi Scheme” that makes Bernie Madoff look like a piker?

Why should 50% of all wage earners, who pay 97% of all the income taxes, have their tax rates increased, while the other 50%, who pay only 3% of all income taxes and, in addition, get a government rebate check, expect the other 50% to take care of them with their taxes?

Why can’t liberal politicians realize that our forefathers offered us the pursuit of happiness, not the guarantee of happiness?

Why is calling an illegal alien an “undocumented immigrant” like calling a drug dealer an “unlicensed pharmacist”?

Why can’t the gay community, who claim to be in favor of tolerance, be as tolerant of others who disagree with them?

Why shouldn’t public schools be forced to compete with alternative, and private schools, by issuing school vouchers or opportunity scholarships, as other kinds of enterprises have to compete in the marketplace, in order to improve the schools and the education of our children?

Why is it that the person, who trashes and slanders others for disagreeing with him, tells the public more about him, the accuser, than about the accused?

Why should we be forced to abide by the Geneva Convention in dealing with ruthless terrorists, when they don’t abide by the strictures of the Geneva Convention in return?

Why can’t some people understand that if we artificially lower drug prices by instituting price controls or by sanctioning re-importation, many drug companies would simply stop making many new drugs as being financially not worth the effort?

Why is it that consumers and producers tend to find solutions themselves, instead of by government interference or regulation, when their own money is at stake?

After reading this, is there any wonder why people wonder?

You see, the longtime Democratic rep says he lives in Delray Beach and he's required to maintain a residence in his district. But he really lives in Potomac MD. The house in Delray that he calls his "official residence" is owned by Lawrence and Roslyn Cohen, the parents of Wexler's wife, Laurie. And it's in a restricted over-55 community, which makes it impossible for Wexler and and his three children to reside there.

2 Wrongs make a WRIGHT for the BHO administration. He selects Sotomayor's who had racial Injustice against whites overturned finally.

Ms. Sotomayor‘s angst with racial injustice (test scores?), disgust with judicial paternalism (White men are all dumb?), coupled with her empathy for minorities made her prime suspect for Barry.
