Jesus and Republicans

The religious right wing does not like the part about Jesus which believed it was harder for a rich man to enter heaven than for a camel to go through a needle. Jesus gave money to the poor and helped the convicts and lowlifes of his day, lepers, prostitutes and convicted theives.

Which of the disciples was a rich man?

The amazing part to me is how the American public thinks it is going to be rich, even when poor. Families that make less than $60,000 a year vote for Bush's tax cuts that go most heavily to favor those earning over $1,000,000 a year! Do they really think they will join them? So foolish! Welfare for the rich, so Halliburton can prosper! So dumb and so amazing.

The purpose of government is to tax and spend on public services: defense, health, welfare, dams, highways, FBI, ports and pollution control. Had the levees been properly repaired and built the loss of property and life would have been much less in New Orleans. Had FEMA acted better the suffering would have been lessened.

Time to get our act together and get better organized. Bush deserves to be impeached for derelection of duty. Much more than Clinton did for lying about some sex!

Thank you very much. I'm glad to see someone who believes as we do. Keep up the great posts...

I guess you haven't heard Halliburton and it's subsidiaries are getting the contracts to rebuild the hurricane damaged areas. Or that the money that was supposed to go to strengthen levees went to Iraq instead.

Now, while Alaska is getting a bridge to nowhere that it doesn't even need, Medicaid payments are going to be going up. All the elderly who voted for Bush on the no marriage for homosexuals platform are now going to be screwed.

What these people are forgetting is, with their holier than thou attitudes is, Jesus was a liberal. Mary Magdelene was a hooker, the apostles were various forms of criminals and white trash. The religious right doesn't want to hear that. They want everyone to conform their version of morality. It constantly amazes me how many "good christians" are on this site. Don't they realize, if they get their way that in the long run, sites like this will be shut down, to protect the children?

Speaking of, why aren't the parents protecting the children? When did it become the task of the goverment to throw us back into 1955 so children can be safe? And do they really think children were all that safe back then? Children disappeared. Wasn't that also the era where Ed Gein was making furniture out of the skin of the women he either dug up or killed? It was not the perfect bucolic existence the Republicans would have you believe. And speaking of bucolic, surveys done 40 years ago and now are showing that fewer farm boys are having sexual encounters with animals now than back then. I think the powers that be need to turn off the reruns of "Leave It To Beaver" and realize that wasn't what life was like back then either. Just as families now aren't like sitcom families.

Now, let me get back on track, now that I'm done ranting. FEMA dropped the ball, but so did Homeland Security. Everyone is claiming they had no idea it was bad until Thursday. Don't these people watch the news or have aides who watch the news?

Brown has taken the fall. OK, I agree, a man whose main qualification was as the head of the International Arabian Horse Association, a job from which he was fired after three years, should never have been the head of FEMA. He's resigned, as he was in over his head in a real emergency. However, why is no one blaming the man who hired this underqualified man in the first place? The blame for Brown not being qualified to do his job doesn't fall with Brown, but with the man who hired him. But when you say that to a Republican, they think you're blaming Bush for the hurricane hitting.

No, I blame him for sending the money the Army Corp of Engineers were supposed to use to strengthen the levees to Iraq and for hiring someone who was a major disaster. Why haven't we risen up and fired this man yet?

Miss Ann is right on! Bush is laible for hiring hacks and not making sure they faithfully execute the laws. I say impeach him but the Repubs control Congress. So remember to vote for change in 2008!
