seriously

I think that Mr. Douthat (Bad Religion) has rightly pointed out the avoidance of the challenges Christianity presents (whether our personal decisions are "righteous") about personal responsibility, but he seems to downplay the challenges to religious institutionalism itself, that I think is also a core lessons of Christ's message and life. Responsibility is personal and private, while judgment belongs to God alone, and compassion should be unconditional, I argue.

PAPERS PLEASE

Life, liberty, and justice have become market commodities available only to the highest bidder. 1963, Democracy ended in the United States of America. Militarism with the war profiteer ushered in a behind the curtain ruling council, later joined with the Federal Reserve they became The Supreme Council. Economic Royalist, kind words from F. D. R., when “fascist” ‘twas their wish.

The Bain of Our Existence

Looking at what Bain Capital did here through the cold, calculated, self-interested eye of the predatory capitalist, you can see its brilliance, but it’s a sad commentary on the system we embrace. People that do this have just figured how to game the system. I still don’t understand how the skills exhibited in this kind of work translates into governing.

White Women ARE fleeing Obama...

Don't take the recent polls about Obama slipping in WHITE WOMEN VOTING lightly...my streets have been saying this since the "War on Women" started weeks ago...and I'm flat out stunned...and saddened.

“trickle down" economics.

It seems that history always repeats it’s self and we will never learn from it. Will Rogers knew of this concept back in during his time. He knew that trickle down economics does not work.

What? Republicans are FRAUDS on replacing Obama-care? Whoda thunk it! (I mean maybe everyone smarter than a chipmunk)

Wake up and smell the coffee, people! Republicans are liars and charalatans about everything, including national health insurance. I remember the saying of William Kristol who said that congress could not let the Clintons pass health care in about 1995 because that meant that Republicans would lose a generation of voters/elections/controls.

Okay, so what about the people of the country actually benefitting from health care reform? Oh -- don't care about that, huh?

Two totally different philosophies to correct. The battle begins.

Trump Undoing Climate Protections - The Fate Of the Planet Is At Stake

Just as global warming appears to be reaching a dangerous new phase, Donald Trump has begun dismantling what little climate protections we do have.

He's calling it a win for workers.

But who's really going to come out on top?

West Virginia miners or the coal barons who've robbed their state blind?
