I frequently come across comments on news articles that go something like this:
Commenter 1: The Bible clearly says that homosexuality is wrong.
Commenter 2: (In response to Commenter 1) But you eat shellfish don’t you?!?! You hypocrrrrrriiiiiitttttteeeee!!!!!
For the pathetically uninformed who try to pass this off as a legitimate argument (and no doubt consider themselves intellectually superior for pulling it out), let me explain why you’re wrong.
The liberals declared war on the dictionary many years ago and the war continues unabated.
It first started with redefining contraception to mean abortion. (For those of you confused as to why they aren’t the same, contraception PREVENTS conception. Abortion can ONLY occur after conception has occurred.)

The President and his minions have seized on the new dog whistle ‘income inequality’. They are using the phrase to justify further theft and re-distribution.
Any thinking person would recognize that the concept of ‘income equality’ in a free society is the equivalent of drawing a square circle. It is simply not possible.
The only way income can be made equal is through force that dictates that everyone receives the same amount regardless of their efforts, talents or contributions.
Despite the best wishes of progressives, people ARE NOT equal. Continue reading
Fascism is a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. 
It’s pretty common in American politics to imply that those on the American right are fascists. And it’s wrong and based on a false premise and a mis-understanding of the differences between the European right/left and the American right/left.
The problem is Continue reading
