I have just realized that I have a VERY big heart. I heard a woman on the radio saying she has gone through some horrible things in her life and it has softened her heart, and she has a soft spot for the poor, and the underprivileged. She claims that she has more concern and feels worse than anyone else for these poor people. I disagree with her. I don't think she cares more for people than I do.
I feel horrible for the Amish farmer in Wisconsin who had his farm raided by the FDA and may lose his farm and his livelihood because some government agency decided that the product he sells is not approved. http://healthimpactnews.com/2011/wisconsin-judge-rules-against-raw-milk-farmers/ And the organic farmers whose meal was destroyed by health inspectors. http://www.adistinctiveworld.net/?p=6091

I feel horrible for the parents who are told their school district cannot fire a teacher for surfing porn on the web while at the school, on school computers because he is in the union. http://m.host.madison.com/mobile/article_a47a943e-6309-11e1-be00-001871e3ce6c.html

I feel horrible for the women who take an unpopular stand on issues and have all kinds of unspeakable labels attached to them. http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/05/the-lefts-respect-for-women-a-look-back/
I have a VERY big heart. I cannot stand to see the citizens of this country treated like criminals in the airports, like interlopers on their own property, like morons who cannot take care of their own kids, like greedy back-water hicks who don't pay enough taxes, like ignorant rednecks because they attend church and carry a gun. The responsible citizens are called bitches and sluts because those good citizens have values.
I have enormous amounts of compassion for all the regular folks who just want to go to work, raise their kids, sell their goods, live on their land, want to pay for their health care, who deserve respect for serving this country, and who do a good job. I hate to see them being defamed and denigrated for being the kind of Americans they have always been. I feel for the rugged individualist, I feel for the proud mom, I feel for the military veteran, I feel for the cancer patient, I feel for the farmers, I feel for the down-trodden, I feel for the abused, I feel for the neglected.
I don't believe the progressives when they call me a racist, bigoted, homo-phobe who wants to throw old people off a cliff, who wants dirty air and dirty water, who wants fat kids, who hates immigrants, who wants women to be bare-foot and pregnant. Because I have a big heart. I have way more compassion for the little people who are being trampled by government intrusion, than you. So don't tell me I don't care, it is you who really doesn't care.
