leave a comment »

Sensibility says the overthrow of the government in Egypt was a military coup – Nonsense says it was democracy at work.

Sensibility says the attack at Fort Hood was perpetrated by a terrorist – Nonsense says it was workplace violence.

Sensibility says the attack on the consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist attack – Nonsense says it was random violence sparked by a video.

Sensibility says terminating a pregnancy after the 20th week is too late – Nonsense says it’s never to late.

Sensibility says a government collecting mass amounts of data on its citizens including personal communications without cause can’t be trusted – Nonsense says it’s no big deal because I’m not doing anything wrong.

Sensibility says the IRS singling out individuals and groups based on religious, political, or ideological views for scrutiny and ill-favored treatment is abuse of power – Nonsense says it’s a conspiracy theory.

Sensibility says the rash of scandals in recent months coming out of this administration is a symptom of a much bigger problem – Nonsense says it’s all phony.

I don’t know about you but all this nonsense is offending my sensibilities.
