Uncommon common sense

By Robert T. Smith

Observations on the passing scene, a listing of what seems nowadays to be uncommon, common sense. We can all have our own list and the list can change almost daily. My offering du jour.

Uncommon Sense:

Anything a person with white skin thinks or does is bad because a person with dark skin didn’t think it, or do it.

If a Democrat disagrees with an issue, it must be racist.

Common Sense

If everything is racist, then nothing is racist.

Anyone who tries to divide us by the color of our skin is by definition a racist.

Uncommon Sense

Biological sex is a societal construct.

There are a multitude of different sexual identities that any individual can assign to themselves at any time, and others are required to recognize and honor that choice.

Common Sense

In the delivery room, the medical professional looked at the mother and said...“it’s a girl” or “it’s a boy.” Everything after that seeks to irrationally convolute that fact statement.

Shown a picture of a man and a woman, even a toddler can differentiate the male from the female.

Nature and nature’s God created males and females in the differing form and function as intended since the beginning.

Uncommon Sense

Man has caused the entire earth’s climate to change.

There was initially an impending man-caused new ice age, then impending man-caused global overheating, then man-caused climate chaos, and now man-caused climate change.

Common Sense

If every weather event or its antithesis is the sign of man-caused climate change, then nothing is man-caused climate change.

The climate of the earth has been, is, and will continue to be ever changing.

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is a necessary gas that supports the symbiotic relationship between respiration and photosynthesis, among many other important aspects of the natural carbon cycle.

Man cannot change the climate of the earth, or the antithesis unchange the climate of the earth by contributing the current small man-caused 4% of all CO2 contribution to the atmosphere, or by removing a small percent of the 0.4% of the atmosphere that is comprised of CO2.

Uncommon Sense

All Trumpers are brainwashed followers of a cult leader.

Orange-man bad.

All President Trump political policies are racist, evil, fascist, akin to Hitler.

Common Sense

There should be an orderly immigrant process to enter the country and the border should be controlled to protect national sovereignty, security, and social order.

The border should be controlled to prevent the flow of illegal drugs that kill and destroy American citizen’s lives by the tens of thousands.

The border should be controlled to disincentivize human smuggling, and the abuse and rape of children sent by their parents with strangers to cross the border.

Parents that send their children with strangers to be smuggled across the border in anticipation of future family reunification into the U.S. for their own benefit should be publicly shamed and flogged.

Peace accords between Middle East Arab countries and Israel are good.

Iran obtaining enough nuclear material to be used as a nuclear device to destroy Israel (their little satan) as their stated intent should be stopped. Iran’s Big Satan (stated to be the U.S.) should not allow this for the sake of humanity and as prologue.

The dehumanizing and deficient conditions found in the decades-long Democrat-controlled areas are bad, especially for people of color.

Deficient public education in decades-long Democrat-controlled areas disproportionately locks people of color into low, or no income conditions. As one of many examples, it is unacceptable that the valedictorian of a High School has a D average in a Democrat-controlled school system.

We should care more about the innocent people who wish to live in a lawful, peaceful community than the criminals who operate in these communities.

We should care that a mother can let her kids play outside their apartment without the fear of being caught in the cross-fire of criminals in the community, more than the community’s criminals.

Police, military, first responders are generally good and altruistic people.

Energy independence is positive for our national security and economy. All-of the above energy sources are the correct choice.

American technology, innovation, and manufacturing should lead the way for American and world economic, social, and peaceful considerations, not China’s.

Killing human babies is evil and should not be allowed as public policy.

Anytime the government tells you that you don’t need a gun, history and common sense tells us that you need a gun.

...ad infinitum. ESR
