I decided to be obedient to the President of the United States, when he suggested that those people who always watch and listen to Glenn Beck or FOX News, should read the Huffington Post once in a while.
I said before, that I would only read it, if I needed to induce vomitting at some point.
But seriously, I went to a story on that site today that was about Sarah Palin at a Tea Pary Convention.
Unfortunately for them, because I guess they are running out of ways to insult Sarah Palin, they rehashed something she said at a Tea Party Convention held in Nashville, TN, the weekend of February 4-6, 2010.
I am sure that many people remember this, because that was when all the buzz started about Sarah Palin writing notes on her hand. The Post was not ragging on her about it this time, they already had a dozen pictures of her hands, which was kind of creepy actually.
This time they were picking her apart because she said that God gave us unalienable rights. I couldn't read past the next paragraph, because it seemed that they were trying to say Sarah Palin was wrong about that, as it pertains to America.
I really hate to nitpick because Obama asked us to read opposing political views, but I cannot read something written by someone who does not know that this paragraph is in the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
This has nothing to do with what we, as a nation of people, do or have done, to anyone else. It says that God gave us life (which He did). It is saying that God gave us Free Will (which He did). It also says he gave us the right to pursue happiness (which he did).
Argue any part of what we as human beings have done to each other since July of 1776, but you cannot argue with what our Founding Fathers meant when they wrote up that Declaration of Independence, that is America.
Therefore, I apologize to President Obama. I tried but I just cannot read something run by someone who was not born here, letting people write articles who try to tell Americans what God did, or did not do. I just will not be able to do that again.
