Be a Hostess With Pride

This guest would really please me. lol
He even says his prayers.

In case you were wondering what Conservative means
This was sent to me by a friend.
One of the very best emails I have  received where it gently explains the difference in thinking between people with  opposite outlooks.     A  young woman was about to finish her first year of college.  Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government  programs; in other words redistribution of wealth.  She  was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be  his.

One  day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.  The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father.  
He responded by asking how she was doing in  school. Taken  aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.   Her  father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey  doing?"   She  replied, "Audrey is barely getting by.  All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA.  She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast.  She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over."

Her  wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask  him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0.  That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."   The  daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back,  "That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair!  I've worked really hard for my  grades!  I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work!  Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree.   She played while I worked my tail off!"   The  father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the conservative side of the fence."

Hilary I think liberalism has gone too far without thinking what its doing.It is unjustly destroying the fabric of society. For example they change the Bible without also forcing the same changes to other religions who continue to maintain their status quo.Why only the Bible?
