Fundie/Conservative logic fail


SpeakNow

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about this all day. Tons of Fundies, such as Josh Duggar, want to have voters show state ID to make sure that no one votes who shouldn't vote. These same fundies oppose common sense gun control (specially universal background checks). Shouldn't proving that you are who you really say you are (and not a criminal and/or withholding information) be more important when buying a gun than when voting? I just don't even understand the logic (or lack thereof)

They want voter ID, but they also are against nearly every kind of ID card put out by government, schools, etc, fearing the mark of the beast. It is Odd!

Fundies and logic don't belong in the same sentence.

Well yes, but obviously THEY wouldn't need an ID card, because you can see just by looking at them that they should be allowed to vote.

I think there is a racial component to this. I sense undertones of white privilege whenever we come across a fundie family that doesn't believe in having any form of documentation. When I read about fundies who eschew birth certificates, Social Security numbers and passports my first reaction is: "Aren't you worried about being detained?" If I could not provide evidence that I was born in my country, and have a right to citizenship, that would be a constant source of worry for me. For some fundies/conservatives, I think there is a tacit understanding that the right sort of people (*wink*) will never be checked for ID, while other people ("Hey, this guy could be Dominican or something!") will need to jump through hoops to prove that they belong.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
