The Liberal Mind(less)set

John Hawkins : Seven Huge Flaws in the Way Liberals Think - Townhall.com

I think # 5 gets to heart of the flawed Modern Liberal mind. The links were added by me...
5) Liberals believe merely being liberal makes them good people. Liberals who're obsessed with money think they're compassionate because they give away other people's tax dollars. They believe they care more about the earth than other people, even as they fly around in private jets*, because they babble on about global warming. They can be dumb as a rock, but believe they're smarter than most other people because they're liberals. In other words, in the minds of most liberals, liberalism is an all-purpose substitute for actual virtue instead of just another political philosophy.

*Yes, I'm aware that Pelosi uses a jet provided by the military, but the principle is the same because she treats it like her personal property.
While we most certainly should do good and help people, we must be careful to do so in a substantive way - with mind as well as heart. Otherwise our good intentions only serve as more asphalt on the road to hell. Hell for us and the ones we want to assist.

That "blue ribbon for occupying a seat" B.S. is why a whole generation of kids can't handle the fact that they really aren't special just for breathing. The reality usually hits when they graduate and get jobs in the real world. Employers (whether it's McDonalds or a white shoe law firm) doesn't care about your "feewings".

Reckon the USAF ought to send Frau Pelosi a 1099 form for the use of the VC-43?

Good point, Anon. Now the question is will she be billed via her personal account or her campaign account?
Remember hearing how Harry Truman paid for his own stamps?
