Trying to get my head around a few things.

We have no problem removing undernourished kids from a home so why is it so controversial to remove an obese child?
Conservatives think it is wrong for The First Lady to promote consumption of fresh grown fruits and vegetables but they think is it ok to regulate a woman once something starts growing inside her.
We created financial behemoths that were too big to fail, and when they failed the Federal Reserve and Treasury’s solution was to make them bigger.
When Washington gets in gridlock, like now, we blame the President for inaction, when the President starts issuing executive orders he gets charged with violating the Constitution.
When not cherry picking Bible passages to support their religious beliefs, conservatives are cherry picking the Constitution to support their political beliefs.
Constitution loving Conservatives needed Congress to reaffirm the motto In God We Trust, yet God does not appear anywhere in the Constitution.
The 4th Amendment of the Constitution protects citizens from illegal search and seizure and the 6th Amendment entitles citizens to speedy trials and confrontation of witnesses, yet the new defense appropriations bill would allow the military to jail anyone it considers a terrorism suspect – anywhere in the world without charge or trial.
People in the south love to call themselves Patriots while still flying the Confederate Flag.
Republicans moan about the end of the Space Shuttle program and the thousands of layoffs at NASA, while they insist government outsource everything else.
Republicans like to slam President Obama’s community organizing background, yet one of Mitt Romney’s credentials is Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Chairman which is nothing more than community organizing with mittens.
