How Can You "Give Back," If You Never Took.....

Quote of the Day:

"Giving back" is a similarly mindless mantra.

I have donated money, books and blood for people I have never seen and to whom I owe nothing. Nor is that unusual among Americans, who do more of this than anyone else.

But we are not "giving back" anything to those people because we never took anything from them in the first place.

I don't disagree with Mr. Sowell but I don't care for his self serving pandering to the unthinking pseudo conservative wannabes.

BTW, I really like the busty young chicka selling conservative t-shirts on his web site!

We are GivingBack to the innominate community which has, in its wisdom & generosity, Given so much to us. Remember, it takes a Village to deliver the mail.

Open your heart & your purse, please. I gave at the office.

Only people who think they own/run the world can use phrases like give back or the related gun control mantra, buy back. To them I can only say, "Stand back."

How about stolen?

Every damn time I get my paycheck I see that I've given (had stolen) far to much...

"The Europeans enslaved on the Barbary Coast of North Africa alone were far more numerous than all the Africans brought to the United States and to the 13 colonies from which it was formed"...

Oh dear! I'm sure the race pimps would go bonkers if someone read that line to them...LOL!

The closing statement in that piece says it all:

"Those who want to "give back" should give back the truth. It is a debt that is long overdue."
