In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.
Sadly, these days it might as well read: “In everything do to others what you would not have them do to you; for if you kill them quick enough they won’t be able to inconvenient you.“
Sadly, these days this gets you booed at in South Carolina.
Really? Are you being metaphoric or did that actually happen?
Of course they booed Ron Paul – he was arguing AGAINST America’s inherent right to be the World’s Bully… err, Policeman. I mean, if we went by the Golden Rule, America (and frankly, Britain, France and all the other nuclear states) would have a lot harder time justifying all their sabre-rattling about Iran getting nuclear weapons.
(Not that I’m pro-Iranian nukes – I think we should get rid of them all together – but it takes a lot of balls to be the lone country to have ever used nuclear weapons to tell other countries that they can’t have them as they can’t be trusted. And frankly if North Korea, India, Pakistan and Israel can all have nukes and not use them, I think Iran might be all right).
Come on! Everyone knows that I would have everyone “tsk tsk” at me as I die from cancer due to a lack of insurance. Isn’t that the way everyone wants to be treated?
Rick Santorum would demand that government force his wife to have died.
