Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

Greg Kaufman: America's Poor Are Demonized To Justify Huge Cuts in Gov't Prgrams | Alternet

 

Greg Kaufman: America's Poor Are Demonized To Justify Huge Cuts in Gov't Prgrams | Alternet



All through history.  As soon as economic classes were first defined, and I suppose were going back as far as the first socio-anthropological and sociopolitical or socioeconomic cultural groups were formed.  But ever since that time the upper class or those with more money or more wealth and control always did everything they possibly could to screw the poor.  And the right wing Christian extremists, meaning the Christian conservatives who are right wing Christian extremists, and the Republican Party and the tea party are basically continuing that line of thinking.  Because the Republicans and the tea party members in Congress and the Republicans throughout the United States are doing everything they can to screw the poor while giving as much money to the wealthy and to people who are either white Christians and Republicans or people who will knuckle under and behave and act like and look like in every way or almost every way as possible.  Like white Christians who are Republicans.  That's the choice for people in this country.  You either have to be a white Christian and a Republican or you have to have lots of money or you have to act like and behave like and look as much like as possible a white Christian and a Republican or you basically get screwed.

We see it happening everywhere.  We see it happening to our young people with student loans we see it happening in business with the wealthy getting all the money they want while basically screwing the worker and telling the worker to go to hell while the wealthy continue to afford their money and make more money and neck like filthy selfish pigs with the Republicans basically lying and saying they are the People's party when they don't give a damn about the people, because all they care about are the wealthy and their special interest groups who are the white Christian extremists.  And we know that's true because of their published statements and their public actions and their voting record.

And so at that point, the future of America becomes quite clear.  The future of America is going to be that if you are not a white Christian and a Republican or if you refused to act like and behave like and look as much like as possible a white Christian and a Republican or have lots of money you are basically going to be screwed in every way possible.  And that is the legacy that my generation is giving to our children.  A legacy of bigotry and prejudice and racism.  A legacy of the rich and the white Christians get everything and the rest of us get screwed.  Which means America.  It really isn't a free nation.  Not unless you are a white Christian and a Republican or have lots of money or unless you are able to act like and behave like and look as much like as possible a white Christian with lots of money, or who is a Republican, because that's the only type of people that the Republicans care about.  And again we can see that in their published statements and actions in their voting record and in the laws that they make throughout this nation.  Whereby, as a result, Native Americans are being screwed.  Black Americans are being screwed Hispanic Americans are being screwed every kind of American citizen in this country.  If they are not a white Christian and a Republican or refused to act like and behave like and look as much like as possible a white Christian and a Republican or if they don't have lots of money are basically being screwed.  And it's affecting every single level of the general public in the United States, if not the entire world.

And what's really amazing is that this practice of screwing the poor hasn't really changed in thousands of years.  It's the same old tired bullshit that has been going on in human social groups for as long as humans have formed social groups.  So any kind of theory that we may have in fact Eve all or progress and have become more sophisticated and more humane is nothing but a pile of crap and all you have to do to know that's true is just look at the news and look at our politicians specifically, if not for the most part, Republicans and tea party members and their values supporters those Bible thumping white Christian extremists who claim to follow Jesus and yet do everything they possibly can to bring as much harm to the very type of people that Jesus was crucified for protecting.  Jesus was crucified for protecting a number of different types of people one of those people were the poor, others were women and the disenfranchised and the downtrodden and the cast out.  And yet it is those type of people that the Republican Party and the tea party and the white Christian extremists who claim to follow Jesus do everything they can to bring as much trouble to and to harm as much is possible.  Which basically means they don't give a damn about what Jesus said at the sermon on the Mount.  When Jesus said that which you do to the least of all, God created God will do to you.  Because if they cared about that statement they would never harm the poor they would never make things hard for the poor.  If they really cared about that statement.  If they really did believe in what Jesus said at the sermon on the Mount they would do everything possible to help the poor but that's not what they're doing because their public actions and their statements and the way they behave and the laws they make show very clearly that they are targeting the poor they are trying to hurt the poor as much is possible and you can see it happening in every nation in the world.

So much for the Christians claiming to be good Christians when I huge number of them, and I don't mean all of them, but quite possibly the majority of them are nothing but dirty liars because they claim to follow Jesus and yet by their own actions.  They do everything they can to support legislation and politicians who target the poor and target the varied types of people that their Lord and Savior Jesus was crucified for which means when they go to church there basically guilty of lying to God and lying to themselves because their actions are making them liars because they are supporting measures and legislation and politicians that are hurting the very people that their Lord and Savior died protecting.

So much for the Republican Party and the tea party stupid bastards claiming that they are actually politicians of the people when they are nothing but filthy dirty liars because their actions make them so.

(For support and source documentation, and further reading, please see my "See Also:" section below.)

And if that's the kind of world that the Republican Party ass holes and the tea party stupid bastards and the liars who are the movers and shakers in the right wing Christian extremist movement want to give to our children.  They can go ahead and pat themselves on the back because they have achieved what they wanted.  They have screwed the poor they have turned their back on the sermon on the Mount they are liars to God and by going after and harming and causing problems and trying to hurt the poorest much is possible they are in fact not obeying those words that Jesus said of the sermon on the Mount, which were very specifically that which you do to the least of me, God will do to you, which means the Republican Party and the tea party and these right wing Christian extremists are setting themselves up to have the wrath of God come down upon them.  Because what they are doing to the poor with their voting and their prejudice and their racism and the legislation, they are passing God's going to do to them because that's what they're Bible says and if they don't believe those words then why do they call themselves Christians.  And why do they go to church if they are not willing to believe the words on the sermon on the Mount and to follow those words and live by those words.  Then why do they call themselves Christians?

And for the record, I know a lot about Jesus because I am a Sephardic Jew.  I'm the same kind of Jew that Jesus was only from a different portion of the Jewish culture.  So I know a lot about Jesus.  And I grew up in a Republican household and the way that the poor being screwed today is no different than how the poor were being screwed back in 1950.  Jesus also said that the meek will inherit the earth.  And the moment he said that the Christian and Catholic community did everything they could to screw the meek.

Solve the wealthy Christians and the wealthy Republicans who claim to be Christians and the tea party members who claim to be Christians really don't give a damn if they burn in hell for all eternity and have God's wrath served down upon them for disobeying those words at the sermon on the Mount.  Then, like I've always said I guess I don't care either.

    For the record, I am pro-life . I do not support violence against, or the killing of any human being under any circumstances! In the entire 62 years of my life I have never raised my hands in anger at, or struck a single human being. And the only way that I ever deviate from that stand is that I do not believe that God has ever given any human the right to dictate to any woman how she is to arbitrate her life with the Almighty, and/or God . Therefore, I believe that all women deserve the right to choose for themselves the fate of their own bodies, pursuant to their relationship with the Almighty, and/or God . My position regarding this statement is more fully explained in my article entitled: Second Gear.

     

    My Statement On Religion

    For the record, I do not now, nor have I ever hated any human being on earth. I do not hate, regarding my spirituality, and spiritual beliefs, anything that the energy that is beyond this world that so many of us call, God, did make. Meaning that I do not hate the “humanity” that exists within any human being. However, God did not make the personal choices that humans make, regarding how they behave, and/or present themselves, to the world. So if a human being chooses, of their own free will to demonstrate their behavior with racism, bigotry, prejudice, and hatred for other humans, on the basis of their own free will choice as to how they define their spirituality within themselves, that is their own choice. So I do not hate any human being for being that which God did make. I hate only the choices and the manner in which humans have decided to demonstrate their behavior to one another. Whereby, as a result of those choices, war and mass murder have all too often been the primary result. I do not hate religion. However, I will never give my support to “any” religion, that has ever caused harm to, or killed, a single human being, in any way, as a result of the religion demonstrating, or manifesting it’s presence in the world. If any religion has ever harmed or killed a single human being, I respect the right of all humans to believe what they want in life. And subsequently, to follow whatever religion they choose. however, I, personally, will under no circumstances give my support for, or to, any religion, or theological belief, that has ever harmed or killed even a single human being. This is what I have dedicated my life to as a spiritualist and a pacifist here on earth. So any attempt by anyone to portray me as hating anyone is a lie. Because that is not so, as the foregoing clearly explains.

    "THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the Catholics,
    and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.

    THEN THEY CAME for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up."
