REAL PEOPLE SUFFER | 2005-03-26

The Schiavo case is a real tragedy for the families involved. It is shameful that their personal suffering is made into a political and media circus act.

Few people relate to abstract ideas. People relate to other people, and that is why these personal cases create such attraction.

The influence of TV and other media has warped this very human trait all out of perspective. That is why Congress and the Supreme Court and the President must all weigh in on this case and "do something!"

Anyone who believes a country can be governed adequately in this manner is out of his mind. It takes someone like Ole Bob to point this out.

When there is a natural disaster like the Florida hurricanes last year, the Governor and the President must immediately get on a helicopter and rush to the scene. Why? What good can they accomplish? They are wasting thousands of dollars and impeding the efforts to alleviate REAL suffering by REAL people. All for a dog and pony show.

Meanwhile back on planet earth, in fact in the same state of Florida, a little girl is brutally raped and murdered by a repeat "sex offender." The life of a family is torn apart because the left has succeeded in keeping these animals out of the electric chair and putting them back into REAL neighborhoods where they can prey on REAL people.

Oh, you'll hear Respectable Conservatives pound their fists about bringing back the death penalty and keeping these people locked up. But will you ever hear one remind a leftist who got them back on the streets in the first place?

Here is a well-written description of what REAL people suffer. It is part of an account of a young female "whigger" that is worth reading.

Notice how this young girl acts just like a "Respectable Conservative." Think about how many REAL little girls are ending up like this, because "Respectable Conservatives" have let the left lead us down this path.
