Hippo crisis - a rant in two parts

A running list of hypocrisies which cause my blood pressure to rise. These are from all sides of the political spectrum and are listed in no particular order.

I'm here to serve the people. I need a raise.

A business should be required to serve whoever walks in the door.  Regulations on the sale of guns, alcohol, tobacco, medicine, gasoline, rental cars, airplane seats, ammunition, radioactive materials, porn, financial loans, fertilizer, age limits for social media accounts, casinos, shipping some things, public nudity, movies and so much more.

Free speech. A photographer must take pictures of anyone who asks.

Abortion should be illegal. Once the baby is born, cut funding to help the momma care for the infant.

Abortion should be legal. Abstinence education is a waste of money.

The death penalty is not a deterrent and should be abolished. Do more to stop violent crime in this nation.

Capitalism is evil. Said message is posted to the Internet with a smartphone.

Socialism is evil. Said message is posted to the Internet while on a public road.

A college degree is too expensive. The average trade school degree costs $33,000, which, compared to a $127,000 bachelor's degree...

College should be free. Colleges have utility bills, insurance, maintenance, faculty and staff salaries that must be paid.

Tax cuts have to be funded. Spending has to be funded. 

We need to raise taxes. We are spending entirely too much.

Anarchy is the best way to live. Somalia is not anarchy, but is a failed state. (Yeah, I don't get that either.)

The solution is more government. Government is out of control and run by the wealthy for the wealthy.

We need term limits for elected officials. Votes for the same person time and time again.

The media cannot be trusted. Said reports are published by the media.

Tolerance. Except for people who are on the opposite side.

Guns should be as difficult to obtain and use as a vehicle. Guns are far, far harder to obtain and use than a vehicle.

Ban hunting. Do something about the coyotes eating pets in the city and wild hogs.

The hogs are destroying my crops. Not going to let anyone on my property to hunt the hogs.

The right/left/center/nutjobs are a bunch of hypocrites. The right/left/center/nutjobs are a bunch of hypocrites.

Too much regulation is killing. We need more regulation.

Selecting the lesser of two evils. Evil is evil.
