You should take this as a message from God… Speaking of the election… not this post… Perhaps you should take the results of the election and the once again over whelming win by Obama as a message from God. And not just his win, but the wins for gay marriage, and the defeat of anti-abortion measures in Republican states, the loss by people who said really dumb and insulting things about rape… perhaps God is sending a message that most Christians are voting for the wrong party…
Prior to the election I saw lots of messages from Christians that people pray so that Romney would win. Now that he soundly lost, there are messages that we can only pray… But if God is in control of all things as Christians suppose, perhaps God is sending a message to Christians to stop voting for Republicans, who oppose the teachings of Jesus and move on to those who are more in line with His teachings. If God exists, then so does the devil and perhaps the greatest trick he ever pulled was convincing Christians to vote against the teachings of Jesus by voting Republican and make them think they are doing God’s will. I am not alone in being an Atheist (in part) because of Christians voting for Republicans, by sticking so hard to the Republican agenda you are hurting the image of Christianity… after all if God was real, he’d be sending messages to Christians…
A small aside. There is a story that is oft told of how a flood came to a town and a man was drowning in the waters. A boat came and asked if he wanted help, the man said “No thank you, God will rescue me” and the boat moved on. Continue reading Hey Christians, Perhaps You Should Take This As A Message From God
The US has abandoned any sense of a Republic it may have once had and become a plutocracy, serving the upper 1 to 2%. We need a drastic change, and the Republicans don’t even pretend to serve the people and make an open show of caring only for the super rich. Still, thanks to Fox News and the refusal of your average Republican voter to do any self thought (due in large part they are trained to take things on faith, to accept what they are told and read and that critical thought is a bad and evil thing), the viewers think the Republicans are acting in the best interest of the US. However this isn’t the full reason why I’ll never vote Republican again. Continue reading Why I’ll Never Vote Republican Again… And the Democrats Are on Shaky Ground Too
[Edited 28 October to add about rich cheating on their taxes more, and to remove a few commas and apostrophe s’s, which for some reason I did on nearly every occasion where it should have been just an s.]
We’re back online and I am finally able to post political stuff.
I saw Ruben Navarrette Jr’s Commentary: Liberals let loose on Palin and Joe the Plumber and it just amazes me how much an idiot the Republicans are being… and I am finding it harder and harder to believe that I used to be a devout Republican myself.
At one point Naverrette says, ” I also thought the Democratic Party was supposed to go to bat for the little guy, the everyday Joe the Plumber.
Tell that to Joe Wurzelbacher, the Ohio resident who got his 15 minutes — and 40 lashes — because he dared question Obama about his tax plan.”
First off, Joe the Plumber would have been a non-story if it wasn’t for McCain bringing him up at the debate. The media wouldn’t be hounding him and finding all kinds of things about him if McCain didn’t make an issue of Joe himself. So his so called 40 lashes, the media camping out on his door step isn’t Obama’s fault as McCain and Naverrette would have you believe, but McCain’s fault… and he didn’t dare ask Obama, he asked, and Obama answered at length. Next, if we went by Joe’s original claim, he wasn’t any “everyday Joe the Plumber.” Very few people, even plumbers, make $250,000 a year. People who think that those making $250,000 are everyday people are living in a world that doesn’t represent the true state of affairs in the US. No wonder why they think the fundamentals of the economy are strong. Continue reading Idiot Republicans
