The execrable Dooche takes the first rule and destroys it like Dirk Diggler hitting an underage hymen:
Any time I engage with one of my conservative friends or family members, or sometimes the conservative commenters on this website, it usually devolves into them screaming about WELFARE! and TAXES! and THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING MY MONEY AND GIVING IT TO PEOPLE WHO DON’T WORK! And what they don’t understand is that this is not the issue at all. What I and many of my more liberal friends want is to HELP people, not give them a free ride, but also not to ignore those who would benefit from us tossing them a life jacket.
No, what Dooche and many of her more liberal friends want to do is HELP PEOPLE TO MONEY STOLEN FROM OTHER PEOPLE. There is nothing to discuss here, the facts are settled. Liberals don’t give money to those in need, they clamor for the government to take money from other people and give it to those in need. It is a proven empirical fact that conservatives in general and religious conservatives in particular give more money to those in need and spend more of their time helping those in need. There’s nothing keeping Dooche from helping out anyone who needs it, but of course, she won’t, because as a good liberal, she thinks that screeching about what she thinks other people should be forced to do is tantamount to actually helping them. It isn’t.
Thank you so very much, Rachel Lucas, for bringing my attention to this horrifying intellectual vaccuum… you’d think I would have learned my lesson the first time I made the mistake of reading one of Dooche’s extraordinarily clueless posts.
