Arrogance versus "Looking Around"
In our world today, arrogance is confused with intelligence even though they are mostly opposites. Why do some invent nonsense? The answers are in fact, all around us. Such as:
If UNIONS and BIG GOVERNMENT were good ideas Detroit would be prospering instead of going bankrupt.
If ENTITLEMENTS were great and CAPITALISM bad then Greece would be bailing out Germany instead of the other way around. (Note: Germany exports BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VWs. Their telephone company Deutsch Telekom claims to be the world's largest, and German engineering is admired. Meanwhile the Greek Gyros sandwich you are eating likely was not put together in Greece).
If RAISING TAXES and REGULATIONS were a good idea, then when stores needed more money, instead of sales they would raise prices and treat customers like scum.
If MUSLIMS were the first people in the places in the world that they occupy, then you must think that humans only existed for 1400 years. (Note: Mohammed died 632 AD meaning the Muslim religion was not created before about 610 AD when the known world was already quite populated.)
If COMMUNISM was so great, people would be leaving Miami in rickety boats heading to Cuba.
If GLOBAL WARMING was possible by CO2 which is only about 0.04% of the atmosphere by volume, then beavers could build dams by only blocking 0.04% of water flow. (Note: Throw a rock in a river... and it would stop)
If DICTATORSHIPS instead of freedom was a better idea, then the world would have made the most scientific and humane progress during the Dark Ages.
If WOMEN are dumber than men, then why is it that often in school the girls have better grades than the boys?
If SLAVERY only existed in the US and only WHITE people are bad, what about the so called wonders of the world? The pyramids of Egypt, the China Wall, the four sided pyramids of Chichinitza Mexico, the statues of Easter Island, the hanging gardens all have several things in common. They were likely built by slaves and the masters did not come from white Europe. And how about Muslim harems? Exotic or slavery of white women captives from Europe? - and yes Muslims did raid Europe villages for slaves. And we hear reports that slavery still exists today for perhaps 2 million children and also sometimes for women in Africa ("Lost Boys" CBS 60 minute special) as well as perhaps other lands.
What REPARATION would make sense in the US from white to black when my family did not migrate to the US till about 1900 long after US slavery was over and Obama's black side came from Kenya and also was not involved in US slavery? I have no white guilt. He should have black guilt.
RACISM in America? You bet. Some white firemen could not get promoted due to skin color, colleges use skin color and ancestry at times to determine admission, and Zimmerman was clearly not allowed a fair trial in the US by many racist leaders. (The answer? This is really complicated now .... the answer is that "equality" is the opposite of racism.)
If Mr. Obama is a CHRISTIAN and not a MUSLIM then why in the US with less than 1% Muslim population (2010 census) are Obama followers shoving Muslim propaganda down our kids and our throats while they revile Christians and Jews? Why does Mr. Obama call it Arab Spring when Morsi a Muslim extremist was killing Coptic Christians and burning their churches?
How can it be said that all SCIENTISTS agree on GLOBAL WARMING when I find it so easy to find so many that do not? I have a science degree. I am not sold. Where was Mr. Obama's science degree from?
If US companies have WINDFALL PROFITS then why are so many going out of business? Where I live during the age of Obama some of our shopping malls have less than 50% of stores occupied (was 100% at times under Bush) and I know of three shopping plazas where the owners lost their place - along with the store owners losing their businesses of course.
If PROFIT is so darn easy in capitalism, why do not a few thousand liberals begin companies, hire thousands of unionized workers each, use no electricity, pay the owners no more than the others, and then our recession is over.
If ABORTION and EUTHANASIA are such good ideas, why do not the people for them volunteer themselves?
The answers are not complex at all. They surround us.
