Taxes, if properly used create and improve infrastruc­ture which attracts business which creates jobs which increases the tax base which creates and improves infrastruc­ture which...

The Christian Right in Context, Part 3: Politics Over Persuasion

In the end, Fundamentalism is a reaction to fear (which makes it inherently unscriptural since Christians are not to have a "spirit of fear", 2Ti 1:7) in the face of a changing world. Especially fear in the face of uncertainty, "the Fundamentals" refer to a litmus test of things a person must believe in order to be a "real Christian" (unscriptural in itself since Christians aren't supposed to attempt to "separate the wheat from the chaff" themselves. Never mind that fundamentalism is the "new kid on the block", that for thousands of years, Christians didn't necessarily believe those things, and, according to scripture, likely part of the "great falling away."

Ultimately Conservative Christianity is rooted in racism, especially the Southern Baptists who split from other Baptists to promote slavery and a "tree never grows far from its roots.'

Thanksgiving Poem

Times are bad, the economy is tough.
    Sometimes we wonder how we'll cope.
And just when we've decided enough is enough,
    The Republicans come along and dash all hope.

I guess I'm thankful to just go on living
When so many plates are empty this Thanksgiving.

This Thanksgiving

With millions of people in America hungry, unemployed, dying from lack of adequate health care, I am quietly thankful for the blessings God has given me while not wanting to celebrate too loudly in the face of such national misery.

Eric Cantor Opposes Compromise On Extending Bush Tax Cuts, Says Government Shutdown Will Be Obama's Fault

The "no highway option" may have sounded good in The Pacifier, but coming from Republicans, it reinforces the idea that Republicans would gladly destroy America just to make sure the Black guy fails.

A medieval castle had been under siege for three months. Supplies of food and water were virtually exhausted, leaving the occupants in dire straits. Unless aid arrived soon, everyone would perish.

Realizing the gravity of the situation, one of the knights offered to break out of the castle and ride for help. Alas, all the horses had been killed so, in desperation, the knight suggested riding out on the back of a huge wolfhound.

'You can't,' said the keeper of the dogs, 'the wolfhound has injured its leg. The only dog available is this Chihuahua, and I wouldn't send a knight out on a dog like this!'
Correcting Sunday school lessons one day, a teacher found that little Jimmy had written, "Harold be thy name," as well as "Give us this day our jelly bread."

God Punished Israel

Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes.  (Amos 2:6)
God punished Israel for their treatment of the poor.  How can the wealthiest nation in the history of the world expect to escape?

The Bush Tax Cuts For the Rich

I don't mind paying taxes, I happen to like roads, bridges, libraries, police, firemen, etc. I think things like food stamps and other assistance to the less fortune helps us have a soul as a nation.

So let the tax cuts expire, if they can afford to give a tax cut to those earning under $250,000 fine, but I'd rather pay more to get us out from under the thumb of foreign creditors.

What I do resent is spending 44% of our tax revenue on the military while our troops are given malfunctioning weapons and vehicles without body armor, and abandoned when they return home AND when most of our military might is used to defend "free trade" which only harms the Middle Class - let the corporations who benefit the most from our military pay the bill.

Republicans can never satisfy

Republicans can never satisfy
This greed that they've got -
With riches piled way up high,
They'll kill Naboth for his lot.

                         (1 Kings 21)
59% of voters expect Republicans to fail, they thought they were getting their house back.
Republicans keep claiming they have a mandate - haven't they ever heard of "Don't ask, don't tell?"
This Sunday, don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour and your calendars back a century.
Now that Boehner is the likely Speaker, he'll be too busy to pass out bribes on the House floor - maybe he'll use direct deposit.
There are WAY more Fox News viewers than MSNBC viewers. There are WAY more college dropouts than Rhodes Scholars.
Republicans are the relatives you have to invite for Thanksgiving Dinner, but you don't trust them around the booze or children.
