I reckon I should start this by stating that I am neither a child therapist nor a psychiatrist so by liberal standards I’m most likely unqualified to speak on this subject. But what I am is a parent so by conservative standards I suppose it’ll be alright.
Children are born liars, that’s not an opinion it’s a fact. A baby cries and we pick it up, correct? It’s not hungry or hurting, it just demands attention. We know this because once we’ve cradled the little one the crying stops. So at a very young age the art of manipulation can be instilled, if we allow it. Now you bleeding hearts don’t form a negative opinion of me fer saying this because I love my son and indeed when he was cryin’ I certainly picked him and held him. After all, I’m a parent and would be a cold hearted one if I didn’t. (WOW, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? DOESN’T EVEN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY ORIGINAL THOUGHT?)
Children are by nature naive and trusting. They have no opinion of the value of money, nor do they comprehend free trade. Matter of fact….this is fun, you can try it. If you give a child a $100 bill
they will most likely trade you that worthless piece of paper (at least to their young mind) for something much more glamorous. You see the child doesn’t understand the true value of that piece of paper, all they see and recognize is the beauty of the quarter.
As I write this I think of Jacob and Esau. Esau being the eldest was to be the recipient of Isaac’s birthright. But Jacob was cunning and tricked his brother into giving up the birthright fer a bowl of lentils.
WHAT WAS HE THINKING, A BOWL OF BEANS, SERIOUSLY??? Esau’s response was…..what good is the birthright to me if I die of hunger. That bowl of lentils was like the shiny quarter, it’s worth was menial at best and short lived. In a few hours Esau would be hungry again and what would he trade fer the next bowl of beans? More importantly what could he offer to be restored his birthright? After all, he had already given up the most valuable of possessions.
Liberals are the modern day Esau’s, happily trading my freedoms and rights fer an already proven failure. Liberals are petulant like the child and can’t see past the shiny splendor of the quarter. Liberals live only fer the moment and the next great idea even if it’s a proven train wreck.
The Bill Of Rights and Constitution are, yup you guessed it, the $100 (only their value is exponentially greater). Neither can be replaced, and I fear once bartered will be forever lost much like Esau’s birthright.
AMERICA, DO NOT REACH FER OBAMA’S SHINY QUARTER, IT IS ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY WORTHLESS.
