FT215: “Of course the Republicans are the party of ‘no’ because that’s what grownups say to children.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Children only care about the Here and Now and Instant Gratification

“Mom, can I eat this whole birthday cake?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I stay up past my bed time?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I go out and play instead of cleaning my room?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I skip my homework and play football with the guys?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I go to the concert with Billy and his big brother?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I use your table saw?”  “No.”  “Mom, will you buy me this micro dress for the dance?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I borrow the car this Friday to drive to a party?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I have boys in my bedroom?”  “Hell no.”  “Dad, can I have $50?”  “For what?”  “Stuff?”  “What kind of stuff?”  “You know, stuff.”  “Oh, in that case, no.”

“No.”  It is the most important word in a parent’s vocabulary.  For kids want to do a lot of things that aren’t good for them.  Things that will get them into trouble.  Things that might hurt them.  Things that may leave them with unpleasant and/or long-lasting consequences.  Parents have to say ‘no’ because kids just don’t know any better.  They only think about the here and now.  Not about the future.  They want instant gratification.  They want to have fun.  They don’t want to wait.  They don’t want to work.  And the last thing they want to do is to delay gratification.

So parents have to keep saying ‘no’ for their children’s own good.  At least, responsible parents do.  Because parents are older and wiser than their children.  Contrary to popular belief children have about their parents.  Children like to say that their parents “don’t know anything.”  But they do.  In fact, they know a lot.  Because they were once impulsive children having the same arguments with their parents.  And now that they are parents they see the world differently than they did as children.  They see it as their parents saw it.  And realize that their parents were right all along.  Thanks to a lot more education, a lot more work experience and a lot more life experience.  The things that makes one wiser as one gets older.

Children who never Grow Up as Adults tend to Remain Liberal and Vote Democrat

Children that grow up into responsible adults tend to be more conservative.  They get jobs.  Straight out of high school.  Or after college.  And party less.  They cut back on reckless behavior.  Such as drinking and driving.  Because they realized they could get a DUI.  They could hurt themselves.  Or, worse, hurt someone else.  If they used drugs they cut back.  Some stop using them completely.  They stop having  casual sex with random people.  In part to avoid an STD.  In part because they want something more than just a good time.  So they, instead, get married.  And settle down.  Raise a family.  And it’s about this time that these one-time wild liberals start voting Republican.  As they see there is a lot more to life than partying with booze and drugs.  And having sex.  Especially when they become parents.

Becoming a parent changes a person.  Single coworkers may still want to go out and get a drink after work.  They may look forward to the weekend so they can drink themselves into a stupor.  But not a married person.  At least, not a married responsible grownup.  They want to go straight home to their wife.  Or husband.  They want to spend time with their kids.  And they don’t want to do anything that could harm their kids.  Like risking their job by coming in late hung over after a night of excessive drinking.  They’d rather get to work early.  Do their job.  And build a successful career.  That is both personally satisfying.  And takes care of their family.  Something sobriety helps.  And our days tend to be easier when they don’t start with a hangover.

Children who never grow up as adults, on the other hand, tend to remain liberal.  Focused on the here and now.  Without a thought about the future.  For them gratification is all that matters.  These people tend to keep the wild ways of their youth.  And those who go on to college take it up a notch.  Away from their parents incessant ‘no’s they can finally say ‘yes’ to everything.  And a lot of them do. They’ll get drunk and video things with their smartphones.  And upload them to the Internet.   The kind of things you once had to go to a pornography store to buy.  But they and their friends will post these videos for all the world to see.  And these things will still be floating around the Internet years later when they’re saying ‘no’ to their own children.  Or interviewing for a job.  Jessie Watters on The O’Reilly Factor has interviewed some of these young college students on spring break.   Asking them questions about history.  International events.  Current events at home.  And if they could identify members of the Federal government.  Few could.  Very few.  Because they have more pressing things in their lives apparently than getting an education.  At least based on what they’re doing with their smartphones.

Democrats only care about the Here and Now and Instant Gratification

Liberal Democrats love these kids.  For they know all they want is to have fun.  So they become the party of fun.  Free birth control.  Access to abortion.  Decriminalizing marijuana.  Anti-religion.  No moral absolutes.  Anything goes.  Even encouraging reckless behavior (they’re going to have sex anyway so we might as well make it easier for them).  Veritable anti-parents.  Who tell these kids that they (these kids) know what’s best for them.  Not their parents.  And if they want instant gratification that’s okay.  You don’t have to worry about the future because if you vote Democrat that’s something else we’ll do for you besides the birth control, abortion, marijuana and the lack of moral constraints.  If you vote Democrat we’ll take care of you from cradle to grave.  Just like that The Life of Julia slideshow promised.  With so little education, work experience and life experience these kids don’t know any better and say, “Okay.  Where do I vote.”

So the Democrats use these kids to stay in office.  They know little so it is easy to lie to them.  About the ‘evil Republicans’ that are as big a killjoy as their parents.  And about how much better the Democrats are going to make their lives.  If only they keep voting Democrat.  So they do.  Because the Democrats offer everything an irresponsible adult could want.  Which is a shame as a lot of what the Democrats offer is bad for the rest of us.  And the country.  Their Keynesian economics fails over and over yet they keep using these failed policies of the past.  Putting the country further into debt.  And further depreciating the dollar.  They lie to these kids about global warming.  Allowing the Democrats to remain in power and pass crippling regulations.  Threatening the coal industry.  As well as increasing our energy costs.  They want to raise the minimum wage for unskilled, entry-level jobs.  Reducing the number of entry level jobs available for those looking to enter the workforce.  And they want to take over our health care.  The best health care system in the world.  Replacing it with something not as good and more costly.

But these grand domestic plans require a lot of money.  Which they often get from gutting the defense budget.  Weakening our military (something they never liked to begin with) to free up money for buying votes (i.e., spending) elsewhere.  They help justify this with a horrible foreign policy.  Instead of peace through (costly) strength they choose a ‘please like us’ foreign policy.  Marginalizing American Exceptionalism.  Being kind to our enemies.  And leaving our allies doubting our commitments.  But if our enemies like us we won’t need a large military anymore.  Allowing them to use those defense dollars elsewhere.  And how has that been working out?  Not good.  Since the ‘please like us’ foreign policy juggernaut Egypt is in chaos.  Syria is in a bitter civil war.  Iran is developing a nuclear bomb.  Israel is feeling abandoned.  Al Qaeda is taking over Libya and Iraq.  The Taliban will return to Afghanistan once the U.S. leaves.    North Korea is test-firing ballistic missiles.  And Vladimir Putin is restoring the Soviet Union.  Because he can.  Thanks to America’s new ‘please like us’ foreign policy.  Instead of the peace through strength of previous presidents.  Like Ronald Reagan.  And JFK.

There’s something else children who never grow up do.  Go into politics.  Into the Democrat Party.  Not the Republican Party.  The party the Democrats derisively call the party of ‘no’.  They join the Democrat Party.  And do all of the things that give us the worst economic recovery since that following the Great Depression.  And a more dangerous world.   Despite this they still want to do more.  Without caring what their actions may do to our future.  Just like children.  All they care about is the here and now.  And instant gratification.  So of course the Republicans are the party of ‘no’ because that’s what grownups say to children.  ‘No’.

FT88: “Liberals say live and let live when it comes to sex and drugs but don’t you dare eat at McDonald’s or light a cigarette in front of them.” -Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - October 21st, 2011

Fundamental Truth

Liberals want us to Treat Kids as Adults when it comes to Sex and Drugs

Liberals want to hand out condoms in school.  And they want to teach school kids how to use them.   They want to give them access to birth control.  And abortions.  Because kids are going to have sex.  No matter what we say.  So live and let live they say.  Let these kids have their fun.  And we’ll deal with the consequences later.  Such as an unwanted pregnancy.  A venereal disease.  Or rape.  Should a young girl get scared and change her mind.  Should a boy not understand that ‘no’ really means ‘no’.  Or believes consent is nonrefundable.  Especially after getting all riled up in school learning about sex.  In an academic setting.  Where it seems like just good clean fun.  Rather than learning it the old fashioned way.  From a parent.  Who tells you to wait until you’re a responsible adult.  Because it’s not just good clean fun.  It’s serious.  And can have some serious consequences.

Liberals would like to decriminalize drugs.  At least marijuana.  Because kids are going to experiment.  No matter what we say.  Marijuana is harmless, they say.  And they poo poo the naysayers who say it can be a gateway drug.  Marijuana won’t make people tire of it.  And look for a higher high.  Because heroin, coke and meth addictions just happen.  Spontaneously.  Just like alcohol addiction.  Some people have a predisposition for addiction.  And the drugs themselves are in no way to blame.  It’s a person’s DNA.  So live and let live they say.  Because drugs don’t addict people.  People do.  Those with a predisposition to addiction.  But it’s not their fault.  They’re just hardwired that way.  So we shouldn’t blame them.  Or drugs.  It just happens.

You see, people are adults.  Even kids.  That’s why we need to treat them as adults.  And if we do they’ll make adult decisions.  Partake in sex and drugs responsibly.  Like adults.  And there will be no consequences we can’t manage after the fact.  Like adults.

Liberals aren’t all that Concerned about Unwanted Pregnancies, Venereal Disease or Drug Addiction

So kids may be adults.  But their parents aren’t.  Liberals don’t want them making ‘adult’ decisions.  Such as what to eat, drink or smoke.  Like kids can about sex and drugs.  No.  Liberals want to use the power of government to make these decisions for adults.  Because they can’t be trusted to make the right decisions.

They want to tax fast food.  And soda pop.  Like they tax cigarettes.  To make them very expensive.  So they can make people choose correctly.  To choose what liberals want them to choose.  And not what these adults want.

You see, liberals aren’t all that concerned about unwanted pregnancies, venereal disease or drug addiction.  But they are very concerned about trans-fat and sugar.  They don’t want you enjoying the occasional McDonald’s meal.  A bag of chips.  A Mountain Dew.  Or a cigarette.  And if they catch you lighting up a cigarette after a meal in a McDonald’s, look out.  You will get a look of contempt and pure hate like you’ve never seen before.  Because you’ve dared to expose children to second-hand smoke.  For kids smoking pot first-hand is one thing.  But breathing second-hand smoke is just unhealthy.  Wrong.  And could scar them for life.  Unlike an unwanted pregnancy, a venereal disease or a drug addiction.

Liberals want Kids to Think Sex, Drugs and Vote Democrat

Why do they want to help kids have sex and do drugs?  Because they want kids to like them.  And they will if they make high school and college as much fun as possible.  They want these kids to think sex, drugs and vote Democrat.  Because liberal Democrats need the youth vote.  For they can’t win elections without it.  And they don’t care if these kids get scarred for life from an unwanted pregnancy, a venereal disease or a drug addiction.
