Posted by Fred G on Mon Apr 30 21:21:31 2012



Interesting piece on how the GOP tries to cobble the two opposing beliefs together.


your pal,
Fred

Within the pages of the Bible, Jesus heeled the sick, fed the poor and preached about the human emotion that the Republican party often rails against, compassion. For a party that continues to vote for cuts in programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, it seems like a bit of a conflict of interest to champion someone like Jesus who would never be against any of those programs. It's hard to imagine Jesus Christ turning away a dying person because they had a pre existing condition or no health insurance.

I donít think many Republicans have read beyond the Old Testament, and itís a very selective reading at that.

Groucho yeah, Harpo not so much :P

No I don't think Karl Marx was right but I don't think Ayn Rand is either. I reserve comment on Jesus as of course he's right cuz he's Son O' God to many.

Fred

I mention Marxism because it was part of the plot on Mad Men last night. Don Draper didn't know what it was.

Don Draper's conflation of Socialism with Marxism has echoes on the right today.

Weiner is getting a ton of heat from Jewish activist groups who are upset with his portrayal of Ginsburg. Notice the Ginsburg was faded out last night. I'll bet some last minute editing was done.

Do you think Karl Marx ever met a factory worker?

There have only been two who were right.

One was nailed to a cross.

The other lives in the White House.

Libertarians are just as nuts as are communists, only on the other extreme.

Of course, you know where I will say that this can all be traced to.

They should be called "caffetteria" or simply "coffee house".

There is no such thing as an Italian cafe'.

That is a haiku which is a form of Japanese poetry. It is a pretty good haiku but then that is just my opinion and others here may disagree which is their right.

You're right. But they should at least use two f's.

Until the early 90's, there was a "caffe" on every corner of Mulberry Street.

It's pretty easy. Both groups hate Obama. If the USA and Soviet Union could partner against the Nazis, secular libertarians and evangelicals certainly can against the common foe.

Democrats have a tougher problem trying to get dozens of disparate groups cobbled together into a winning coalition. Won't be nearly as easy as 2008 (probably never that easy again).

I don't think you understood the article. We're talking incongruous beliefs and not political strategy. For instance, one can't simultaneously love his fellow man yet allow him to starve.

Did you listen to yourself when you wrote that? You are coming from a POV of hate to begin with, and that doesn't fare well for your "side" or the future of the nation. Hate only serves to destroy.

The Democrats are looking to form a coalition to a positive end. Although they may bicker amongst themselves, the desired outcome is positive, building, expanding, growing.

Positive end of negative growth, depopulation, and sheer hatred of certain ethnic groups and genders?

The democrats were dragged across the yard kicking and screaming into WWII. And only when they could have camps of their own.

Sounds like the republican plan for America,sans depopulation (of the preferred population ONLY). I'm not interested.
