The first from Jeff:
complacency – ignorance – anger – class envy = socialism > marxism > fascism = Democratic Party = no belief in God = moral lawlessness.
“gave women choice and control of their bodies”
what choice does this baby have? who is accountable for the decision to terminate a life? the baby or the mother? Should our governement be funding abortion? God will judge… Hi Jeff,
First I’d just like to address your random thoughts there at the top which seems to be FOX news sponsored spew and more brain washing by people who wouldn’t normally read this blog because they don’t have the intellectual fortitude to comprehend basic history, politics or ethics. First though I have to address the ridiculous, blank is to blank, intellectually inferior SAT analogies. Complacency doesn’t usually start revolutions, check out the history on the Soviet Union and Communist China both by the way are and were not Socialist, but Communist inspired by Karl Marx which is where the term Marxist comes from. Socialist countries would include basically all western democratic nations except ours except perhaps (ironically) those that were once Communist. I don’t know enough about the state of Eastern Europe to comment on it as it seems to be in constant flux and has changed radically over the past two generations. So I’m leaving them out of this equation.
And Fascism is actually what we had under the Bush administration at least Mussolini the head of the Fascist movement in Italy, when it was an actual political party (before and during WWII) defined Fascism as a merger between the state and corporate power which is what we had for the past 8 years, about as close as we have ever come to Fascism in this country as is possible without shredding more of the constitution that the Bush administration had about as much respect for as toilet paper.
And to address the idea that no belief in God = moral lawlessness is an insanely naive and reckless equation that has nothing to do with reality. Firstly, I would agree that under some Communist rulers religion was forbidden and people were forced to give it up and this is horrible, disgusting and insanely naive. This idea came from the notion that religion was the “opiate of the masses” and it encouraged intellectual laziness. But that is about as ridiculous as demanding everyone be the same religion and/or be forced to participate in religion which people like you would have the US do.
We live in a free country and that means we are free to choose to believe, not believe or to believe ridiculous things like FOX news propaganda and whale sized blow harts like Rush Limbaugh. Throughout history many of the most moral people have been either agnostic or atheists. Morality naturally flows from the wellspring of compassion, understanding and tolerance. The KKK are an all Christian group, but I’d hardly call them moral. Hitler was a big believer in God and destiny, but he was pure unadulterated evil. Pope Innocent slaughtered all the Heuganauts and said, “Let God sort them out.” I’m pretty sure God sorted him out after he died.
Religion often is used to murder, torture and steal other people’s land/property and rights. It can be positive or it can be a mask used to rationalize evil deeds, a club to prop up egos, a magic key that lets otherwise sane people act insanely with the rationalization that God is on their side. I think it is a very sad for all of humanity that 20% of the population still doesn’t get it. I really wish Jeff and all those people who think like him would do the world and humanity the favor of reading and researching things based on reality rather than what the mind bombers want them to believe and then take the leap by actually thinking for themselves.
And on the topic of abortion let’s say for starters there’s a reason “God” didn’t make men the keepers of the gateway to life. And what man has the arrogance to question “God’s” decision to let that issue rest on women? Oh, yeah Jeff is arrogant enough to know what’s best for everyone else. I forgot he knows better than God. Let me say no woman I have known has ever had an abortion lightly. And if they did, they were severely mentally ill and the child born to them was better off. The spirit of the unborn child deserves the right to go to someone who will care for him/her without being abused or murdered. Not only are you, Jeff, not qualified to decide this issue for anyone because you are a man and will never have to risk your life, health or worry about being raped and made to carry a child in your womb. But you fail to realize that having a baby is a life threatening situation for the mother. I should know I almost died giving birth to my daughter last year. And I mean that literally, we both came so close to dying that my OBGYN told me it was too dangerous for me to have any other children. That if I did there would be a good chance that I would die, end up in a coma or have a stroke and then who would take care of the child I do have? You, Jeff?
I am lucky I have never had to have an abortion. The women who I have known who did have to make that decision because they were in various states of trouble are still tormented by the guilt of doing it. But let’s say I was raped and got pregnant. Should it be your decision Jeff whether my daughter grows up with a mother or not? You think the state should decide what should be done to my family, my body, my daughter’s body? What? Because of some religion that you probably haven’t even studied? Don’t tell me you’ve bothered to read the whole of the bible because I’ve never met a righteous Christian who could even spew the 10 commandments. They don’t even know them. Yet they feel they have the right to decide someone else’s health and life? Did you know it said in the bible that “Life begins at the first breath.” Yes, until the 1960s and Vatican II a fetus wasn’t considered human.
I know as a psychic that the spirit of the person comes at inception, but I also know we have many lives, and if someone can’t bring through the soul of a person, and that soul needs to be born another opportunity will arise and that human being will come through. And let me tell you as a victim of some serious child abuse, I wish my mother would have had her tubes tied, and I would have been born to someone who was loving and kind. I believe it is every human beings right to be cared for as a child not just born. All you people care about is controlling the womb but once the baby is born you’d let it starve to death and have it’s head cracked open on a sidewalk in front of you and you’d not do one damn thing about it. This is an issue that the right better back off about. You people have not one clue. If you want to feed every unwanted baby and raise them yourself then I would give you the right to put in your two cents, but all you want to do is control other people.
Jeff, you are a perfect representative of the people who are ruining our Democracy, eroding freedom and are destroying our country. You have made a Faustian deal with the corporate devil so you can make your fifteen dollars an hour and then have them ship your job overseas because you don’t understand how you are being used and manipulated by these truly horrible people who use religion in the very way Marx said it was used, as an opiate for the masses. The Bush administration torture innocent people, but as long as they claimed to be one of your kind, well, then it was OK.
Take a cold hard look at yourself in the mirror. Ask yourself what your hiding behind that mask because that’s what your religion has become if you believe you have the right to decide what other people should do with their bodies or believe in their hearts. This is the definition of evil. People doing horrible things and justifying it by using God. Disgusting. Jeff your mindset is the worst kind of putrid filth mocking true morality.
I will say you got one thing right — anger. People like you are infuriating.
On a personal note having a child is the greatest gift anyone can be given. And that being said, people who don’t want that gift don’t deserve it. Human beings need more than just vessels to pop out of, they need love, support, kindness, compassion, warmth, food, clothing, healthcare, and respect. I would never want to damn any child to the life of one of those kids in a Romanian orphanage or sold into sexual slavery by their parents. Personally, as a spiritual person who knows souls are eternal, I believe we all have the right to be wanted and loved, and treated with respect, no child deserves the kind of torture an unwanted child receives. Better for that soul to be matched to someone who sees the gift in their life rather than their life as some kind of curse.
And from Madhavi:
Obama is going to do a fine job of leading us into a major depression. Watch for inflation, outrageous spending (money that doesn’t exist) already happening. Humongoua TAXES all over the place…in the name of “fairness”, “socialism”…Obama wanted to win at all costs, not McCain. It’s important he won because of the race wound (in this country-and the world) but beyond that, he’s a disaster. And it’s only going to get worse!!!
News flash the economy is getting better. It tanked under your crappy president and is recovering now. And if McCain didn’t really want to win then why did he run so many times? And why was it important for him to always be married to a wealthy heiress?
Hmm, let’s see. A guy who works with impoverished youth who comes from nothing and marries a woman who is self made vs. a guy who people in his own political party called “insane,” and an “egomaniac,” and who turned life long Republicans away with his total lack of economic know how. He scared off so many rich Republicans that they were willing to pay 3% higher taxes than loose everything because they knew McCain would drive the sinking economy to the bottom of the sea.
You don’t have to be psychic. Just look at what happened, the mass exodus and the people who turned, way before Arlene Specter. Maybe you should give up listening to Rush Limbaugh. Try listening to some news and read a few papers in your spare time.
