Maybe it is just me, but I don't know any person who would agree with that cartoon in the op.  Seems to me that someone is trying (as usual) to make conservatives out to be evil and mean and cold-hearted.  When that is so far from the truth.  (I am not referring to the OP, but to whoever came up with that ridiculous cartoon.)

I must be an atypical liberal. LOL I dislike people like this. Liberals and conservatives alike.

I also dislike hypocrites, no matter what their political beliefs. I guess I'm an atypical liberal, too.

Yes, I'm sure the creator of the cartoon was trying to make conservatives look bad. Just as the creator of the meme floating around this thread wanted to make liberals look bad. That's why I chose to discuss the cartoon in terms of defining what is fair and equal, and what our obligations are, as a society, to help those at a disadvantage. Even if you remove the political (conservative/liberal) references, I feel it raises some interesting questions.

As did mine-

I just do not get the disconnect.

Quoting Sisteract:

What I think is funny is that many conservatives (especially those who love to fly the religious banner) think that they ARE just, moral and kind.

Quoting blues_pagan:

You know I was thinking the same thing at first.  And then I realized that the moral thing is to help people who are smaller and less priveledged than you.  

Quoting Erinelizz:

Lol, interesting!
But this scenario isn't fair, right? That tall kid probably had to carry his box all the way to the ball field...why should he have to share it with the short kid? Who cares if he didn't actually need the box because he is naturally more privileged (although the box sure made his view extra-spectacular!). The short kid should have just carried two boxes if he wanted to make up for his, uh, shortcomings.


My comment on this comment is, while I personally think that is the kind and moral thing to do, it's one thing to hope people will be kind and moral and another thing to legislate it.  I think when you legislate it, it doesn't allow people the chance to actually help one another, but instead to resent one another.


I  missed the part of the Bible that said trolling to piss of Liberals, for kicks, is good, moral or kind but lots of Cons here like to do that. I guess the nuns at the Catholic school I went to used a different Bible.

Yes, because helping people who are disadvantaged is not a conservative belief. That is the point of the picture.

It didn't used to be that way in my memory...it seems to be something that has been building up over the past couple of decades. I can remember when the big messages being sent out by churches in general was to help the less fortunate. Now it seems to be a full-on focus of "God helps those who help themselves" misconstrued to mean only be responsible for your own. It is a shame .

 In it's own way?

Sorry...had to correct your error.  The word is "its".  It's is a contraction for it is.  The apostrophe takes the place of the letter you're leaving out. 

:)  I love correcting liberals.
