The Community Card Review – XII

Compassion is a virtue. How one demonstrates compassion is another matter.

Democrat politicians and liberals love to show up at food kitchens during the holidays when the television news cameras are rolling. Liberals in government crate massive programs that ultimately hurt the people they are supposed to help. These programs bankrupt the taxpayer and the nation at the same time, all in the name of “compassion.”

Liberals also ban behaviors that THEY deem will hurt the poor unfortunates whom liberals believe can’t or won’t make the right choices.

Three years ago. Liberals banned trans-fats in New York City to save the obese from themselves. But there are still plenty of obese people in New York, and plenty of hungry people too.

The New York City Food Bank reports that – after the the Obama Summer of Recovery – people are showing up in greater numbers than ever before for a free meal. Well, over half of the food kitchens in New York no longer have enough donated food to feed all that show up.

Donators might be surprised, saddened and pissed off to learn what happens to the food they donate. The head of the NY Food Bank tells all donators ‘thank you’, but if the food has trans-fats in it – like fried chicken - it is secretly thrown out.

Sure, people are hungry, but the Food Bank has to follow the law. Liberals feel it is better that the poor go hungry, and maybe die, rather than risk obesity with donated food.

This is liberalism in action. You can spot the few times liberals are actually doing something, because a wake of disaster is left behind.

More proof liberalism is a mental illness. There is no other explanation than fits.

New Federal Government rules for golf. they are as follows;

Golfers with handicaps:
- below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
- between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
- above 18 will get a $25 check each time they play.

The dollar amount placed in bets will be as follows:
-for handicaps below 10, an additional $10.
-between 11 and 18, no additional amount.
-above 18, you will receive the total amount in the pot even if you do not play.

The term "gimme" will be changed to "entitlement" and will be used as follows:
-handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
-handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts.
-handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need to putt, just pick it up.

These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring.

In addition, a Player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par,can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again.

The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term 'net score' will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above.

This is intended to 'redistribute' the success of winning by making sure that in every competition, the above 18 handicap players will post only 'net score' against every other player's gross score.

These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.
Golf must be about Fairness.
It should have nothing to do with Ability.
