Friday quick-hitters

Just because you want something to be true doesn’t make it true. And just because you don’t want something to be true doesn’t mean it’s not. Skepticism is healthy. If you are to err, err toward leniency. Rumors are just hearsay. The more a rumor is told, the more likely it has been altered from its original form.

Be cordial toward children. Someday they will grow into adults and will remember how you treated them when they were growing up.

If you are a Christian, it is important to treat those who live unbiblically with dignity. When Christ commanded us to love one another, He listed no exclusions.

Snow takes an incredibly long time to melt.

Don’t ridicule the work of others (as long as it’s legal & ethical). Just because it doesn’t seem important to you doesn’t mean it isn’t important to the other person.

Perhaps the most dastardly element of progressivism is that progressives more or less advocate stealing from other people’s labor. To me, there are few actions lower than confiscating hours from a person’s life. This is why I prefer consumption-based taxes in favor of income taxes.

If the Democrats force a government shutdown over DACA, I have calculated that 19,374 Americans will die every day of the shutdown. This is in addition to the deaths that have already occurred because of the Trump tax cuts, overturning net neutrality, and pulling out of the Paris climate accord. However, this does not include the number of deaths that have occurred by women obtaining “health care services” at Planned Parenthood.

We do not yet fully understand the level of corruption that occurred during the Obama presidency. I would say that nothing about Democrats can shock me anymore, but I do believe we would be shocked.

It is not an understatement to assert that liberals care more about foreign-born residents who come here illegally than native-born and naturalized citizens, care more about those who don’t earn a paycheck than those who do, care more about Muslim jihadists than peaceful Christians, care more about criminals than law-abiding citizens, and care more about National Anthem protesters than those who stand. I could go further, but you get the point.

It is your job to invest in your own retirement. The earlier you get started, the better. If you’re banking on Social Security to get you through, you’re going to be thoroughly disappointed, and by then it will be too late. Don’t just depend on government.
