On my drive to work recently, I noticed some bumper stickers on the car in front of me.  I do this a lot – let my eyes wander here and there at my neighboring cars, bulletin board changes, new businesses that might have popped up recently, etc.

At first I noticed that the color scheme of the stickers was red/white/blue, well before I could read the text.  Those colors generally put me in a good mood.

The sticker on the left turned out to be

I don’t have to like Bush
to love my Country

And so I think to myself… “another hater”.  I truly don’t understand the extreme vitriol and hatred so many people have.  I mean, I can understand a little, and maybe even respect, someone protesting, or disagreeing with any current administration.  But there are just so many people who just… plain… HATE the man.  I just don’t understand it! 

I think it comes down to the fact that the hatred is initiated.  I mean, it’s one thing to ask someone a question, and then they give you an opinion.  Or maybe you ask them a question, and then the hate pours out.  But with Bush Haters, you don’t even ask.  They don’t wait.  They stick it in your face as much as possible.  They go out of their way to do blog entries, initiate conversations and then they spread the hate and fear with bumper stickers for 24-7 hatred.  I think they like hating things.  I think they’re so far removed from their emotions and actually performing services for themselves and the community that their simple act of hate gives them a sense of accomplishment they cannot achieve for themselves with normal means.

So I look to the other side of the car for the other bumper sticker and it says 

An Eye for an Eye
makes the whole world blind

Whoa.  On the face of it, it’s a cute, pithy remark that makes a witty point but as I think about it more, it truly describes the way liberals see the world.  I believe it’s originally a quote from Gandhi, but in general, it shows how liberals don’t want to punish criminals.  Instead, they want to understand them.  And give them another chance.  And another.  And yet another.  And blame anyone or anything but the criminal for what they did.  They’d rather put responsibility and accountability on someone else’s shoulders, like the government, upbringing, social pressures, etc.  And when you complain that criminals should be punished, they bring up accusations of intolerance. 

For one, an “eye for an eye” won’t make the whole world blind.  It’ll make all the criminals blind, as retribution for making the victims blind.  And to me, if I knew I was going to lose an eye if I took someone else’s eye out, I’d think more than twice about taking someone’s eye out.  Wouldn’t you?  So it seems to me that the criminals get their comeuppins, and then the number of criminals diminish over time. 

And some of them want to indoctrinate early 🙂

So I’m going to come up with some of my own pithy sayings.

  • People who can’t… hate those who can.
  • Think before you hate!
  • Disagreement != hatred
