I Ain’t Drinkin’ the Purple Kool-Aid!
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when Al Gore declares there is a “scientific consensus” regarding Global warmi…I mean Climate Cha…sorry, make that Polar Vortex!
[I feel the need to add these parenthetical paragraphs because I am not sure if everyone understands the reference to “drinking the purple Kool-Aid.” From UrbanDictionary.com: “A reference to the 1978 cult mass-suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. Jim Jones, the leader of the group, convinced his followers to move to Jonestown. Late in the year he then ordered his flock to commit suicide by drinking grape-flavored Kool-Aid laced with potassium cyanide. In what is now commonly called “the Jonestown Massacre”, 913 of the 1100 Jonestown residents drank the Kool-Aid and died.

Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when it comes to the acceptance of same sex relationships and even same sex marriage. Have we really thought this through…? This is the slipperiest slope of all time “…with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is the next step.

And finally, Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when it comes to general acceptance that society is just becoming more and more complicated and that therefore we need to have ever-growing governments and more and more government laws and programs and higher and higher taxes so that government can take care of this so complex of a modern society that we live in…freedom be damned…
