    America Is A Frog In A Pot Of Slowly Heating Water That's About To Boil​




    An interesting revalation by Mr. Daniels​

    By Charlie Daniels
    November 18, 2012



    It's hard for us to understand what happened to the America where unborn life was once respected and protected, where marriage existed only between a man and a woman and was considered sacred and where no self respecting person would ever stand in front of a television audience of millions and tell them it was her right to have her contraception paid for out of the public coffers.

    Where people took the responsibility for taking care of their families and would never lie about their infirmities in order to collect a disability check, when teenage pregnancy was rare and church attendance was routine in most families, before ambulance chasers clogged the courtrooms with frivolous lawsuits and the name and symbolism of God and His Son Jesus Christ were prominently displayed in public places.

    For decades we have found it easier to just go along with the crowd than to stand up for what we believe in. Social expediency, not wanting to appear to be out of touch, being the odd man out, the one with the backward thinking, not willing to go along with the changing times and changing mores, expandable ethics and optional morals of the modern times; these thoughts have crept into the mindsets of too many of us.

    We didn't come to this sorry place in history overnight, it happened in increments and every inch we surrendered to the dark side which never gave an inch back, and the dark side immediately continued their unrelenting battle against a naive and passive people who just didn't have the time or the will to be bothered.

    Add a little salt and pepper to the pot and I bet you that frog will taste like chicken.

    Social conservatives cost you an election and will ultimately cost you your party, I don't know about America but the boiling frog analogy fits the situation the republican party is in now, unwilling to jettison the crazies that will end up costing you everything.

    Isn't it up to Boehner to turn down the heat? Any deal depends on him bargaining in good faith.

    Yep. My guy lost and the whole world is going to end. Damn, these 'Conservatives' have been crying a river now for nearly two weeks. What a bunch of sad sacks.
