So American Liberal thinks it's we conservatives who [morally] strut and preen? It's LIBERALS who pass laws regulating the fat content of foods, the size of beverage a vendor may offer his patrons, the choice of doctors and treatments per ObamaoControl, the number of bullets a citizen may use in his legally owned weapon, what kinds of weapons said citizen may own, how much water a toilet may use, where children must go to school and how they must be indoct-oops, *educated*, who get between kids and their parents by interfering in the parents' instruction about life's most intimate aspects by forcing the kids to hear of the sexual hangups of perfect strangers...

The only reason we regulate stuff like that is because stuff like that imposes huge economic costs on our country. The market may not tell you exactly how much fat is costing us, but there is a cost. THAT you can be sure of. Moreover, it is a calculable cost. And liberals, being the productive and creative elements in society (certainly the scientific and rational side), are tired of carrying those costs just so you right-wingers can stink up the room and feel good about it.

So while you ignoramuses are incapable of seeing secondary and tertiary costs of the behavior, it is in America's interest that they are rationalized. And indeed, our unwillingness to rationalize those costs over the past few decades has led to our decline.

...It is LIBERALS who prohibit innocuous prayers at team sporting events and high school graduations, who changed 'Christmas Break' into 'Winter Break' (can't have even a passing mention of Christ in a school, now, can we?), who suspend first graders for chewing their Pop-Tarts into
'gun shapes', who remove toy soldiers from cupcakes brought to class, who think they can 'prevent' bullying by making it difficult if not impossible for a bullied kid to defend himself, who think women can be on the front lines of combat but can't be trusted with a .38 in her purse...

..in other words, it is LIBERALS who think we can't so much as wipe our noses without some benevolent busybody (appointed by the liberal, of course) hanging over us to make sure we do it properly.

CS Lewis is absolutely right about the tyranny of the do-gooders.

It is never enough, and it never ends.

AliveInHim, I fully agree with most of what you posted.

That said...I disagree with your premise that Liberals "think". They don't. If they did, they would cease being liberals.

LOL I stand corrected, Steve! :)

Ben Shapiro is a syndicated columnist, author and the Editor-at-Large of Breitbart.com. His most recent book, Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America, was a New York Times bestseller and praised by Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and Sean Hannity, among others. At CPAC on Friday afternoon, I had the opportunity to sit down with Ben for a few minutes to discuss his new book, and learn more about his relationship with Andrew Breitbart -- a man he described as both a “happy warrior” and “deeply loyal.”
