Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Some people are creeps.

On Independence Day, someone — or a group of someones — broke into Fox News’s Twitter account for politics and put out false notices about the death of the United States President. Apparently, they meant this to smear Fox News, which, though calling itself “fair and balanced,” is in truth a conservative counter to the vaguely-to-staunchly leftward bias of ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/MSNBC. The popularity of Fox really bugs many folks; some become unhinged on the subject.

And they forget that they should obey the law. And principles of decency.

Now, I don’t know what law in particular was broken. I can’t name it. But, just as I need no city council ordinance number to tell a stranger to get out of my house, after he entered without permission (finding the key, perhaps, in its secret spot in the garden — and hey: what was he doing in the garden anyway?), just so no one needs a special law to know that logging in to Twitter and trying a bunch of obvious and not-so-obvious passwords to gain access to someone else’s account is wrong.

We know this by common law and common sense and simple, everyday morality.

I have a simple bit of advice for all political activists. Say you are angry and you want to really hurt your “enemy.”

First ask yourself: Is what I want to do unjust?

Lastly, you might want to consider: Is it tasteless?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

  2. Neal says:

    America is incrementally and systematically rejecting the principals and spirit upon which it was founded. As a result, our nation is experiencing unparalleled moral decay. National immorality flourishes when the heart and soul of a nation’s citizens reject these principles. Simply stated; “Decline in national morality leads to moral decay; causing America to decline!”

    There is “NATIONAL DISCOURSE” (political, as well as moral) raging across America. We know this by common law and common sense and simple, everyday morality. With alcoholism, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, abortion, homosexuality, school violence, child abuse, pornography, rape, robbery, corruption and murder pervading our nation. America is drowning in corruption and immorality. By all measures, this “NATIONAL DISCOURSE” has and continues to threaten the moral and political foundations of America.

    As these principles continue to be systematically and incrementally removed from America, our nation as a whole and individuals will continue to experience even greater moral decay.

    As George Washington so wisely warned, “… Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle.”

    George Mason, the Father of the Bill of Rights, said, “As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, so they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.”

    However, there is good news, even in the face of such moral degradation. Many are seeking answers. Many are yearning for relief and peace in dire circumstances. Only moral people can make a difference by pointing individuals and our nation back to its founding principles.

    It’s rooted in the plague that currently surrounds us…EVIL…an inability to do what is RIGHT vs. an insistence on do what is WRONG; and not being able to determine which is which, or knowing the difference between them.

    “The United States is a nation of laws, badly written and randomly enforced.” Fewer laws equals more freedom—only a liberal would be opposed to that.

  3. Carl Koch says:

    You assume that these people understand the concept of what is just and legal. To them, anything that advances their position is just and legal, whether it really is or not. They are living examples of the creed “The ends justifies the means”. They do not understand the moral and legal ramifications of what they do. Nor o they care.

  4. Drik says:

    Those political activists could also ask themselves: “What profitith a man if he should gain the entire world, but lose his soul in the process?”

    Which for some would be like asking about colors to a blind person, since the moral relativism espoused by the followers of Alinski(Rules for Radicals) allows any crime, any ethical breach, any corruption, as long as the desired goal is achieved. The credo is that winning justifies ANY means.

    The jihadiis may be right in labeling the folks that collectivly espouse this as the Great Satan. Their problem is that the majority of the country is NOT so inclined, despite the continual barrage of media that implies so. They would have us forget that the majority of Americans are not lib/progs or Hollywoodistas. That we are steadily trying to live a good life and provide for our families.

    Our problem is that those espousers have manged to wend their way to positions of responsibility, where they are trying to do as much as they can to sink the country before they are removed. By sink, I mean take away freedom and liberty.

    The left is convinced of its moral and intellectual superiority. Therefore, any act which advances their cause is considered just. I am reminded of a recent incident involving private property that belongs to my employer. The organizers of a gay pride celebration wanted to use the company parking lots for the event. They were told that the lots would not be available for their use. On the day of the event, attendees chose to park in the lots even after being told that were not allowed to do so.
