Sipping the tea of ignorance

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

Why do babies cry?  The reason is simple enough — they learn to do what works.  Babies learn that crying gets attention, brings food, gets them what they want at the moment.
Adults aren’t all that different from babies.  We learn to do what works.
 While campaigning back in 2008, President Obama angered Pennsylvanian voters when he characterized them as one issue voters clinging to their ideals on guns, God or gays.
 In my opinion, he was being far too generous.  Many people are zero-issue voters, thinking of little more than how to get what they want (at the expense of anyone else).  “Thinking” might be too strong a word here.  The mucus that resides between their ears has little to do with thought.
 And once again, the regressive baggers are humming hymnal harbingers of the hideous hazards of hedonistic heteroclite homosexuals!  Their antipathetic alliterations do little to hide the fact that they can’t muster up a reasonable debate on any issue.
 Like crying babies, they sip the tea of ignorance and continue to do what works (for them).  And what works is hate.
