We’ve heard dozens of reasons (or excuses, depending on your perception) for the nastiness in the Kavanaugh confirmation process. I won’t even list them here. There are many and you’ve heard them all.
They all seem to land in one central spot: Kavanaugh was unworthy to become a Supreme Court Justice. In trying to understand the Leftist’s ignoring Kavanaugh’s judicial record, I determined they made it Left vs. Right, Conservative against Liberal, Republican against Democrat. In following that reasoning, I ran across a story that ironically parallels what we are experiencing politically today.
It includes two characters: a man and a woman. But it’s not sexist!
“A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted at him,
‘Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.’
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, ‘You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.’
She rolled her eyes and said, ‘You must be a Republican.’
‘I am,’ replied the man. ‘How did you know?’
‘Well,’ answered the balloonist, ‘everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.’
The man smiled and responded, ‘You must be a Democrat.’
‘I am,’ replied the balloonist. ‘How did you know?’
‘Well,’ said the man, ‘you don’t know where you are — or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.’”
It’s sad but true. Despite what Leftists are claiming, the war between conservatives and women is NOT a legitimate claim. In fact, the Left is saying to women exactly what they have said to African Americans for decades: “We are the political party that supports you, knows your needs, and cares for you. Conservatives hate women and will never allow women to assume serious roles in running our country.”
All this week we will look at specific dividing issues between Democrats and Republicans and historically find the realities and falsehoods in each.
Make sure you look in tomorrow as we get started!
