Origin of Left and Right

Have you heard this one?  Good lesson!

Subject: Origin Of Left & Right

I often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".
By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.
Can't get any simpler than that.
Spelling lesson -- The last four letters in American.......I can.
The last four letters in Republican.....I can.
The last four letters in Democrats......rats.

End of lesson. Test to follow in November, 2012.

I can??? Blocks every worthwhile proposal to fix the economy?

Right??? Compassionate conservatives cheered when someone mentioned someone down on luck.

If that's Godly or being "right," I don't want a part of it!

"I can" do for myself. I don't need to take what you have earned and give to me. Now if you want to give with a cheerful heart that is Godly.

I don't know of any Conservative that cheers when someone is down on their "luck".
