#1 Why Does Anyone Need to Read About Celebrities?02-27-2013, 08:06 PM
A good one from Ann! I hate liberals too!
Having given up on trying to persuade Americans that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens will reduce the murder rate, Democrats have turned to their usual prohibitionary argument: "Why does anyone need (an assault weapon, a 30-round magazine, a semiautomatic, etc., etc.)?"
Phony conservative Joe Manchin, who won his U.S. Senate seat in West Virginia with an ad showing him shooting a gun, said, "I don't know anyone (who) needs 30 rounds in a clip."
CNN's Don Lemon, who does not fit the usual profile of the avid hunter and outdoorsman, demanded, "Who needs an assault rifle to go hunting?"
Fantasist Dan Rather said, "There is no need to have these high-powered assault weapons."
And prissy Brit Piers Morgan thought he'd hit on a real showstopper with, "I don't know why anyone needs an assault rifle." Of course, where he comes from, policemen carry wooden sticks.
Since when do Americans have to give the government an explanation for why they "need" something? If that's the test, I can think of a whole list of things I don't know why anyone needs.
I don't know why anyone needs to burn an American flag at a protest. The point could be made just as well verbally.
I don't know why anyone needs to read about the private lives of celebrities. Why can't we shut down the gossip rags?
I don't know why anyone needs to vote. One vote has never made a difference in any federal election.
I don't know why anyone needs to bicycle in a city.
I don't know why anyone needs to have anal sex at a bathhouse. I won't stop them, but I don't know why anyone needs to do that.
I don't know why anyone needs to go hiking in national parks, where they're constantly falling off cliffs, being buried in avalanches and getting lost -- all requiring taxpayer-funded rescue missions.
I don't know why Karen Finley needs to smear herself with chocolate while reading poems about "love." But not only do Democrats allow that, they made us pay for it through the National Endowment for the Arts.
In fact, I don't know why anyone needs to do any of the things that offend lots of people, especially when I have to pay for it. I don't mind paying for national monuments and the ballet, but if "need" is a legitimate argument, there's no end to the activities that can be banned, forget "not subsidized by Ann."
Go read the rest!

She stole this from me.
Why does Thug Life need 12 Bentleys? You can only drive one car at a time.
Why does a celebrity need 10 houses? You can only live in one house at a time.
Why does any woman need 100 pair of shoes?Be Not Afraid.

Sometimes Ann just knocks it out of the park.
This, is such a time.
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

I'll play along:
Why does President Obama need to play 1,000 rounds of golf every year?
Why does Mrs. Obama need to go to Aspen every year?
Why did the Obama's need to eat lobster 3 meals a day when vacationing in Martha's Vinyard?The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

I was with him until that last point, then he just started talking crazy."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken
