A ‘Welcome Back’ Thought

I haven’t written in almost six months, and I’m unhappy about that.  I enjoy using this space to share my thoughts about current events and politics.

There is no huge post for today – only a thought.  Let me know what kind of response it triggers.

“It’s amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion.  Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion.  Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness.  People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed and sheltered.  If we’re compassionate, we’ll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right.  There is great joy in helping people but no joy in doing it at gunpoint.”
