Inconsistencies Among the Vices

with 2 comments


Is it just me, or does anyone else wonder at these inconsistencies:

Tobacco – Plenty of warnings about how smoking and dipping snuff can cause lung, mouth, and throat cancer, as well as being more and more noted as powerfully addictive and socially unpleasant.

  • Minors under the age of 18 cannot legally purchase tobacco products (and most every convenience store checks)
  • Cannot smoke in a lot of places – many states disallow smoking in public or anywhere near a school or within 15′ of a doorway.
  • Cigarette trafficking laws prevent buying in one state of low taxation to sell in a state of high taxation.

Food – Not maintaining good eating habits can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and many other physical issues.

  • New York City bans carbonated drinks greater than 16 oz.
  • Numerous regulations on identifying nutrition facts on every label, so people can avoid foods with high amounts of fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
  • Numerous regulations regarding vending machines in schools

Alcohol – Can lead to liver damage, alcoholism, and driving while impaired.

  • Federal laws preventing the sale and consumption of alcohol by anyone under the age of 21
  • Stiff penalties for alcoholic beverages in vehicles where it can be construed as driving while impaired.
  • Laws forbidding trafficking liquors across state boundaries

Pre-Marital Sex – Can lead to unanticipated/unwanted pregnancy, emotional and psychological trauma, venereal diseases of wide assortment, as well as social and spiritual damage.

Yet we allow:

– Abortions darn near on demand – and pretty much government funded, with the liberals trying to allow for partial-birth – all of which ends in the destruction of human life.

– Discussions about sex in the classrooms as early as the formalative elementary years

– and, as of today, females of any age to procure the Plan B medication, even though they can’t legally give consent to have sex.

While we disallow:

  • Classroom discussions that teach abstinence, in favor of so-called “reproductive rights”
  • Controls of lewdness on television, radio, and other media, inviting kids to have sex younger and younger because they see it is cool (yet we discontinued cigarette commercials because of the same thing).
  • Parental consent on any underage girl before seeking an abortion
  • Warning kids of the dangers of pregnancy and abortion

And liberals don’t see anything wrong with this?  How is it that liberals can be so hell-bent on regulating things, but when it comes to sex, they start going all ape about individual liberty?  Seriously?

    • Thanks for that. It just makes me wonder why liberals get so crazed about all this other stuff, but as soon as we start talking about “reproductive freedom”, they go all libertarian (which is strangely ironic).

      Thanks for reading!
