(The Raw Story)   Double whammy. Step one: forbid food trucks in order to protect the local restaurant industry. Step two: make the law apply to all trucks so churches cannot feed the homeless   ( divider line

It's a strange feeling.
The libertarian part of me wants to know why any business needed special protection from the government in order to stay in business.  Those food trucks were obviously providing a valuable service that their customers desired.  But the government can't have that...

The non-sociopath in me wonders why the government needed to pass a law that directly hurts its most vulnerable citizens.

The sociopath in my wants to violate the people who allowed the bill to become law, while feeding their entrails to chickens, and videotape it as a deterrent to any future such stupidity.


And they're all on the same side.

There is no real problem -- they don't mean Christian churches. Because Jesus was an Aryan badass who would give a poor person a gun and teach him to hunt for hisself. Only heathen churches hand out food, that's socialism and downright Anti-American. So if you give food to poor people, you can take your commie religion and GIT OUT.

Ambivalence: Doktor_Zhivago: Like anyone is actually gonna enforce that shiat.

Why would anyone pass a law they don't mean or want to enforce? (That's a rhetorical quesiton.  Yes I do realize that Christian Conservatives wouldn't want to enforce laws protecting OTHER people's religion and that's a great example, but still)

Oh, there's room for lots more hypocrites than are dreamt of in your imagination, Horatio

FTA " even ones which sport Matthew 25, 35-40 on their sides.
"I was hungry, I was thirsty, I was naked, I was sick and in prison," the verses read. "When you do to them, you do to me."

They forgot Matthew 25, 40-45 says "psych!  suck it poor people.  Get a job!"

namatad: step 3: kill everyone who voted for the bill and whoever signed the bill into law
step 4: humanity profits universally

If you kill every evil, greedy sumbiatch in the Republican Party you're going to need to buy stock in the Union Metallic Cartridge Company and make sure your insurance policy covers repetitive strain injury to your trigger finger.
