Two Ironies to share (an irony being a humorous comparison):

Irony 1.
We are told NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics.”
BUT, on the other hand, “We are encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners and NRA Members by the actions of a few lunatics.”
How is that supposed to be logical thinking?

Irony 2.
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever to 47.5 million people (most recent figures available April 2013).
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Dept. of the Interior, tells us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” One of their stated reasons for the policy is because “the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”
I’m confused at their apparent contradictory logic. http://www.nps.gov/grca/naturescience/wildlife_alert.htm

Thus ends today’s two lessons in irony.
