Ok. I read the following Fox News title and had what my dear father refers to as a, ‘conniption:’
Why the conniption? Because even the title is wrong! Forget the actual story- let’s talk about that title! Obama’s DIRECTIVE? So, we have a king now? And that isn’t the news? It is the assumption? I tell you, FOX is not a ‘Conservative’ news source. They lean juuuuuust right enough to lay claim to GOP interests, but let me tell you, no Conservative could get past this title without sputtering! A ‘directive’ from the boy king? A DIRECTIVE? I ask you, “WHY DO WE NEED CONGRESS?” The article mentions Obama creating new directives as if that were the new norm. As if the nature of the directive, and not the fact of the directive, is the actual point. Really? Really? I. DON’T. THINK. SO!
Because I can’t get past that assumption, People. I can’t get past the very idea that we have a boy king who can even give directives. I really don’t care what that directive is. He had no right to give it. Thus, it is entirely invalid. And yet, here is a news outlet framing the argument and building in the notion that Obama has any power to make law.
Do not allow the Progressives to frame the argument, Friends. It is their very favorite trick. That is how they hope to win. They build in assumptions in an effort to solidify them in your mind before you even begin the debate. Example: “Why do you need guns? Is there so much crime that you need to carry a gun everywhere?” See, if you answer that question, you have also accepted a mighty big assumption: that the person has the right to ask it of you. But they don’t. Especially in the context of whether you should retain your right! If they can ask you why you need to have an inalienable right as defined by the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, then you can ask them, “Why do you need to be practice homosexuality?” If we can ask the question, it implies that the person’s right is open for discussion and validation.
