Welfare Checks for me! But NOT for thee!!

This is typical of the GOP and frankly I'm sickened by it. They have successfully leeched themselves onto the this year's Tea Party outrage while simultaneously directing attention away from their own dirty snouts, filthy from decades of burrowing in the public trough. This is their modus operandi: talk small gov't, ooze libertarian ideals, demonize the left then fight against free market forces and pocket huge welfare checks. It's really quite amazing but predictable considering the ignorance of your average voter.

Support the Free Competition in Currency Act!

Ron Paul is trying again to release the government's stranglehold on our money. The feds need to be able to 1.) Print money at their whim and give it their friends, here and domestic FIRST and 2.) force the peasants (U.S. Taxpayers) to use it for all transactions.

Ron Paul, in his long standing tradition of trying to subvert the Federal Reserve, introduces this Act in order to make a dent in the Fed's armor.

An astonishingly low number of people realize that money is really nothing but a medium of exchange. Even fewer realize that printing more money makes each unit of money, i.e. the dollar, worth less in value (supply and demand). The Federal Reserve and it's supporters on the left, right and center realize that the Federal Reserve must be supported at all costs. It is the foundation of power for national politicians and allows them to do things (innumerable social programs, illegal wars, nation building) that would be unworkable without unpopular higher taxes.

Lets see how many self proclaimed fiscal conservatives join Ron Paul on this one.

Keep Christ in "mass Consumerism", er Christmas?

Bill OReilly, Focus on the Family and other christian groups are always trying to cast secularism as the real enemy of christianity in America when they aren't.

So what people arent saying "merry christmas" enough in the stores today? That should be applauded! We should not want Christ associated with massive debt and out of control spending.

The real enemy of christianity in America has always been american christians and their hypocrisy, idolatry and overall lack of biblical knowledge. They continuously besmirch the holy name of Christ and then try to blame secularists for the problems of today.

"There's a war on Christmas, O'Reilly recently reminded viewers, driven by those who "loathe the baby Jesus."
-- they don't loath Jesus, Mr. O'Reilly. They love Jesus. They'll do anything to make money, Jesus is making them money. American christians like yourself who support bombings of foreigners and care nothing for Iraqi Christians by supporting the Iraq invasion are the real problem.

Enter this surprising (at least to me) and refreshing group, Advent Conspiracy founded by pastor Rick McKinley.

These folks ARE fighting the hypocrisy and the idolatry of todays Christian Right. They are trying to get American christians to reject the mass consumerism of Christmas altogether and to focus on Christ's message of humility, service and obedience on a daily basis.

Obama continues murdering....

Well...I knew it...

Obama has decided to continue the pointless Afghan war. Actually, I shouldn't say pointless. The military contractors see a point to this as they continue to rape the taxpayers. Obama likely has cemented his re-election since war-time presidents rarely lose re-election. So Obama sees a point. The young men and women going to fight for multi-national corporations may see a point too.

The more things "change" the more things stay the same.
