+2Our desire to promote our own welfare makes conservatism possible. Other people’s desire to promote their own welfare at our expense is what makes it necessary. Even if it was true that conservative policy encouraged selfish choices, it is still the best way to protect your family from the dangers of an uncertain future.

+6Our capacity to care about the fate of our fellow humans is what makes liberalism possible, our propensity to not give a damn about them is what makes liberalism necessary. Even if it was true that liberal policy makes little economic sense, it is still the more noble alternative.
I can get free shipping on a $3 phone case from China, but to ship the same item within my country costs $10 or more. How is that possible? I mean, people buy a lot of stuff online these days, that difference in shipping cost has huge implications for the competitiveness of domestic online retail. More
I have been listening to true crime podcasts, and I can't help noticing what disgusting people most of these criminals are/were in a hygienic sense. Are many people in fact pigs, but just manage to clean up enough to go out in public and not get on the news? What is the worst example of disgusting behavior you have ever encountered in seemingly normal people? Do I really want to know? ;)
A Smart or a Crazy Answer? * The following is supposedly a true story relating to an actual sailor's experience in the Army. * After turning in from a four to eight watch the seaman overslept and missed muster. When questioned he said: "Due to my metabolic inability to cope with change I did not respond to external stimuli and remained in a comatose condition." The C.P.O., who didn't understand a word, listened to this report with awe and sent the sailor to the psychiatrist. Link: http://www.ahajokes.com/war059.html

Is there a Justice in this World ? I.R.S. Parking Tickets * The following is supposedly a true story. To be included, besides being true, the story is most likely strange, weird, surprising, or funny. Boston Globe, April 13, 1990 Is there justice in this world? Well, in Jacksonville, Fla., an Internal Revenue Service car parked outside the federal courthouse was "booted" for unpaid parking tickets, forcing tax collectors to fork over $122.50 to set it free. The IRS had to pay $95 for five tickets, a $25 removal fee plus $2.50 for processing to get the boot taken off, said Gertrude Bradley, clerical supervisor for the city parking division. With the tax-filing deadline closing in, courthouse employees were chuckling about the IRS' misfortune. But the agency was not amused. "We're not pleased with it," said spokesman Holger Euringer. Yeah, we're all really upset. Link: http://www.ahajokes.com/true034.html
