If You Would Do This,

Then You Have Too Much Time On Your Hands.

Okay, let’s break this down, working backwards, chronologically, through the article. Say you’ve beaten someone up, for using a bathroom that you thought they shouldn’t have used. I’m not going to get into whether or not your opinion was right or wrong………….yet. I’m going to start right in with a bigger question.

  • Vets have been deported.
  • SNAP and EBT recipients have had more limitations placed on what they can buy with their food stamps.
  • Our elders have had heating assistance taken away.
  • Students free lunch programs are still in jeopardy.
  • Minors’ health care is still in jeopardy.
  • Farmers have had land snatched away from them for pennies on the dollar.
  • Protesters are being jailed for exercising their right to protest.
  • Asylum seekers are being put in concentration camps for seeking asylum.
  • Black and Brown people are being harassed for lounging at the pools of their own condos, and for doing their jobs.
  • Hispanic Americans are being arrested for speaking Spanish.
  • People who kneel or don’t stand for the Anthem are being harassed and beaten up for exercising their right to kneel or not stand.
  • Water protesters were sprayed with fire hoses turned up to full force, on a freezing night, when they were standing in the water that they were protecting. According to a treaty, that land and water belonged to the Native American Dakota Tribe. The Federal Government was trespassing and stealing the land and water.
  • People who want a same sex marriage are being refused services by churches, court clerks and bake shops.
  • Restaurant servers are harassed, in writing, by patrons who think they’re gay.
  • Restaurant patrons take that same attitude with them into Mexican restaurants and end up on Twitter and Facebook looking like the idiots they are.
