    10 Questions to Ask Your Favorite Liberal 

    A liberal friend posted a Facebook link to an article, 10 questions to ask your conservative friends. It is full of strawmen and strange questions. I will link it  http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/09/01/10-questions-to-ask-your-favorite-conservative/ so you can form your own opinion.  Here are mine. Feel free to add your own.

    10) If it was outrageous and irresponsible of Reagan and Bush to increase deficit spending, why no noise whatsoever at the current administration?

    9) Drone strikes and Kill lists…any qualms whatsoever?

    8) What should be the limit of government power?

    7) Now that Gitmo hasn’t been closed, unemployment hasn’t gone down below 8% and we have a triple the size deficit, what do you think the President will do in a second term that warrants your vote? Why would he have to since once he’s in  power and has no future election prospects, he is beholden to no one?

    6) HHS mandate…paying for abortion, sterilization and birth control gratis, but charging seniors for diabetic supplies…any thoughts?

    5) Do you think owing 16 trillion and having no passed written and signed budget for 3 1/2 years is a coincidence?

    4) How is it charity to take money forcibly not to give to the poor but to give to the government to use without oversight?

    3) Fast and Furious…either everyone else is lying including those dead people in Mexico and our country, or the administration is, if Eric Holder is innocent then he is incompetent, if he’s not innocent, he’s immoral.  Your thoughts?

    2) Lybian Embassy…we knew…He snoozed.  4 Americans murdered.  We knew. He knew.  And yet we focus on a film that no one saw and no one cared about, not even the people doing the rioting.  How many have to die before someone will admit to grave error and responsibility?

    1) Are you better off than you were four years ago?

      I really like how they listed the ten commandments (thou shalt not murder) and say that they don’t mention abortion. LOL

      All good questions here and typical scrambling of facts and fiction at their site.

      I remember the left bashing Bush over the death toll in Iraq and “celebrating” when the toll hit 1,000. I read recently that over 70% of the deaths in Afghanistan have occurred on Obama`s watch with the toll hitting 2,000 there today with two more killed by Afghan Trainees.

      I do not remember them celebrating as much as firmly pointing out that this was an unacceptable loss of American life for a war with which they disagreed. But seeing as Afghanistan was a “good war” the cost of military personnel is not something the press in general feels a need to bring up.

        I used the quotation marks to signify that the left used the milestone as a way to further hammer Bush on the wrongness of the Irag War and how he had gotten so many of our guys killed, even if the left doesn`t really care one whit about our military. That 1,000 mark was for both wars combined, if I`m not mistaken.

      ugh that link. Besides the “abortion not mentioned hellooo MURDER” point, also that was some nice misinterpretation of the Constitution re the “general welfare.” And just a bunch of smug self-satisfaction at being so morally superior. Cheers!

      I asked my older sister question #10 during Obama’s first year in office. She is a self described, “big lib.” She said his insane spending was okay because finally someone was spending money on things that needed to be done.
      When I pressed her and told her the facts, like less than 10% was going to go to infrastructure spending and “shovel ready jobs” (it ended up being a scant 6%), and that a vast amount of the stimulus was going to corporations that were run by big Obama contributors she got upset and from then on refused to talk politics with me.
      So of course, being the good little brother that I am, I bring up politics whenever I see her.
      Even when it is my sister, I love driving libs crazy.

    Some Questions that I Wish Liberals Would Answer Honestly 

    I have some questions that I really would like someone on the left to answer honestly.  I don’t want to hear things thrown back about conservatives, just honest answers.  

    1. Progressives, women especially, talk about having safe and affordable access to birth control and reproductive rights.  This is one of the talking points used when discussing tax payer funding of Planned Parenthood.  My question is why have so many objections been raised when states, such as Virginia, are trying to pass laws that would require Planned Parenthood to have the same medical standards as a hospital?  If it is truly about “safe” then shouldn’t they be the first in line to demand that the environment be as safe and sterile as a hospital must be?  Or do they prefer that women end up in a Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors?  
    2. Why can’t black people be republicans or conservatives?  No one with an ounce of honesty can say that the left thinks it is OK.  While I am sure that some could care less, but the over the top rhetoric about race traitors, Oreos, Uncle Tom, images and talk are everywhere when come to a black person that happens to believe in limited government.  Michael Eric Dyson was challenged about it today and refused to answer the question and then went on to talk about how Herman Cain is racist.  
    3. If the goal is to make abortion safe and rare, why do they oppose laws that will give the mom to be a waiting period to think it over or to have an ultrasound so she can she for herself what she is about to kill?  
    4. Why are people on the far left trying to normalize sex with children?  
    5. If homosexuality is something that you are born with and cannot be changed, why isn’t pedophilia?  
    6. Where is the scientific proof that homosexuality is genetic?  Because there are cases of identical twins being of different orientations.  How can it be genetic if this is true?  
    7. Why is widely believed that homeschooled children are somehow less educated than their public school peers?  
    8. Why do liberals always bring up Hispanics when the conversation turns to illegal immigration?  Don’t they realize that illegal immigrants come from all over the world and are not all Hispanic?  The vast majority of illegal immigrants that I have known in my lifetime have been from the UK (many nannies where I grew up). I want them to get legal status and start paying taxes too.  
    9. How does having a Christmas tree in a town square force someone to be Christian?  
    10. What other holiday uses an evergreen tree?  
    11. Why am I less a woman because I am not a liberal?  
    12. Why don’t feminists speak out more about the mistreatment of women in Islamic countries?  Where are they about this woman who is a rape victim who is currently in jail and upon her release will be forced to marry her rapist?  Are they really that afraid to say anything negative about Islam?  If so, why?

      They are incapable of answering questions based on truth and/or logic. Simple!

      • Sherry 2:09 PM on 11/28/2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have to agree! Even the oldest progressives have lost the fine art of critical thinking and those skills haven’t been taught in public schools for ages.
