Have you ever seen a problem, clear as a summer day; yet others around you are totally blind to it? Sometimes the examples are so blatant, they write themselves….
A Facebook friend posted this picture:
Yet no mention of the words that are clearly etched into the Statue of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
And no mention of the millions of immigrants that came here and built this country, one brick at a time. I guess we can close the doors now, since this country is perfect and no longer needs cheap labor. (/sarcasm)
And then there’s an old friend of mine who’s an avid pro-life Christian, but also endorses killing protestors. (Wish I had gotten a screen shot of that conversation)
And then one night, I stumbled upon the movie “Behind The Curve“, which discusses The Flat Earth Society and shows some of the experiments they performed to “prove” the Earth was flat. I especially liked the experiments that showed there IS a curve, but they did not want to accept what they themselves had just shown. I think everyone should watch this movie, just for the entertainment value.
And sometimes other folks write the memes for you…..
