Cognitive Dissonance: NPR, Obama & Equality

   Listening to NPR on the way to work the day after the inauguration of the worst President in my life time and that covers from Eisenhower up to the present. As expected they were giddy having just finished a piece on whether he should be on Mt. Rushmore. They focused on the part of his speech where he equated gay rights with the civil rights struggle.

   The centerpiece of this argument was the President basing his words on the founding document that All Men Are Created Equal. This is a proposition that people have no say in their skin color or sexual preferences. That we are ALL created equal. Not BORN equal, CREATED equal with natural rights of being. I agree with that. Equal means equal. If we're going to talk it then we need to walk it. Dr. King and JFK both took this position. This country must strive to fulfill those tenets of the original contract.

The next piece was a celebration of the fortieth anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

   The irony of the cognitive dissonance of the Left is deliriously laughable. Are these people capable of assessing their own dysfunction?

   Apparently the only people that are not CREATED equal are the unborn. Their rights of equality under the law, their rights to life can be taken without due process, their right to an advocate to defend them simply does not exist in these feeble minded people. They can be exterminated using cruel and unusual punishments for the mistakes of other simply for being CREATED at an inconvenient time.

   If inconvenience to others carries legal standing then let's clear the rest homes of those with dementia, Alzheimer's, the mentally incompetent ( granted that might pose a threat to the White House, Congress and Supreme Court ) or the prisons.

   Let's apply the same punishments to the guilty who have committed crimes that we impose on the most innocent. Let's bring back beheading, draw and quartering or drown them in salt water then tear their bodies apart.

Then, and only then, will we ALL get equal rights under the law.

   This President they worship voted three times against legislation that would require the state of Illinois to provide for a newborn who survived partial birth abortion. a natural born citizen, the right of equal protection under the law or medical attention. He effectively supported wrapping the child up in a blanket, the child would be left to die in a linen closet then tossed away as medical waste. A child who by law had a birth certificate and then a certificate of death... on the same day.

And this guy has nominated a man who accused US soldiers of being baby killers! That is moral and cognitive dissonance.

   Doing what is right is hard, doing evil is easy. If you voted for this guy then you share in empowering this evil. And guess what.. in God's court of law... ignorance of the law, but it was legal, it was my right to choose or it was my job are not accepted as excuses either. But if you don't believe in a God then what is evil to you?
