Liberal Compassion – Criminals Go Free
How Much “Liberal Compassion” Can We Survive?
Liberals have a very distorted view of compassion.
Nevertheless, they have managed to convince a large number of American Christians that it is Democrats who really care for the poor whereas conservatives care only for themselves.
But the facts tell a very different story.
For instance, the incredible disparity between the charitable giving of Democrats and Republicans shows that the latter group gives more (much, much more!) to people in need.
No, when the Democrats want to give money — they want to give someone else’s money! Their scheme of the redistribution of wealth is, therefore, less like Jesus’ teaching and more like Robin Hood’s. And yet, Democrats don’t just steal from the rich; they steal from the rich, the middle class, and the working poor.
The False Compassion of Liberalism
Last week on CNN I debated a liberal commentator who complained that the problem with President Donald Trump’s budget blueprint is that it lacks “compassion” for the poor, for children and for the disabled. This woman went on to ask me how I could defend a budget that would cut Meals on Wheels, after-school programs and special-education funding, because without the federal dollars, these vital services would go away.
This ideology — that the government action is a sign of compassion — is upside-down and contrary to the Christian notion of charity.
We all, as individuals, can and should act compassionately and charitably. We can volunteer our time, energy and dollars to help the underprivileged. We can feed the hungry, house the homeless. Most of us feel a moral and ethical responsibility to do so — to “do unto others.”
‘There’s something wrong with the justice system,’ says officer who responded to dropped murder case
A Montreal police officer says he has serious doubts about the justice system after a man accused of murder will go free because his case took too long to make it before the courts.
In 2012, Hugues Olivier was the first officer to arrive at the murder scene of Anuja Baskaran, a 21-year-old Ahuntsic woman.
Police arrested Sivaloganathan Thanabalasingam, her husband, and he was charged with second-degree murder in August of that year.
Quebec court delays lead to cases against alleged criminals being dropped
There are growing concerns lengthy delays in Quebec’s court system will compromise the province’s ability to bring to justice suspects charged following investigations by Quebec’s anti-corruption unit, UPAC.
The Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling last July set new deadlines for completing trials — provincial court cases must now be completed within 18 months, and Superior Court cases must now make it through the trial process within 30 months.
Since then, Quebec courts have received dozens of applications for a stay of proceedings because of cases taking too long to go to trial — 153 in all, as of Nov. 3.
Ontario launches guaranteed income program for 4,000 residents
The Canadian province of Ontario will become the latest place to test a guaranteed income program for low-income residents.
The provincial government launched a pilot program on Monday that will provide 4,000 people with a guaranteed income, regardless of their employment status.
The idea of a guaranteed — or “basic” — income is gaining currency around the globe. Supporters say the schemes offer workers greater security, especially as technological advances reduce the need for human labor. They also allow unemployed people to pick up odd jobs without losing most of their benefits.
Guaranteed income money for nothin’?
Our civic leaders are putting Toronto in line for a piece of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s “guaranteed basic income” pilot project pie.
Of course they are. “Basic income” is pure social engineering — and that’s catnip to our councillors. Plus, it’s FREE MONEY!
Hit it, Dire Straits:
“Now look at them yo-yos, that’s the way you do it
… money for nothin’ and the chicks are free.”Share on Facebook Tweet about this
