Jesus Christ And His Tennis Shoes

This from Kevin Charnas: 

Jesus Christ And His Tennis Shoes
I received the following excerpts from a friend of mine today;

****"Our "moral imperative" as Americans is to get this done. Do not be the silent majority...speak out for the 12,000,000 people who have lost their health care. People are dying because they are being denied coverage for necessary treatments. We must ask ourselves why this has taken 40 years to get done?

How is it moral and justified for senior citizens to be fed lies about losing their Medicare and that "death panels" will decide whether they will be allowed to live or die? Where were all these people when Bush spent millions of dollars on a needless war that cost thousands of lives? This is not a partisan issue is an American issue! It is not a racial is an American issue!

The Health Care Industry is spending $ 2,000,000 a day to fight this reform. Ask yourselves why? Why have Health Care insurance costs risen as much as 43% while services have diminished?

Our voices do count! Put an end to the rantings of the lunatic fringe who call themselves "patriotic" Americans and Christians. The lunatic fringe who won't allow their children to listen to a speech by the President on staying in school and working hard no matter what your background is. The lunatic fringe who won't allow a healthy debate in a town hall meeting and shouted down the woman in a wheelchair who feared that her home would be lost because of her health care costs. They will not rest until they take down Obama and therein lies the problem. Ask yourself if you want to be a part of that.

We are better than please speak out and stand up for what is just and right!!!!!! September 11 brought us together as a nation and so should this!


It was very well-put and true.

I'm so fricking tired of people comparing President Obama to Hitler. And screaming "SOCIALIST". They don't even know what that means... They've been caught up truly, in lunacy. And the really unfortunate part? They have guns.

But, before I get carried away on a tangent, let's just very briefly look at some of our allies that lean toward socialistic ideals.

According to a report released by the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD), happiness levels are highest in "socialist" European countries like Denmark, Finland, and Sweden. While the U.S. didn't even make it to the top 10. (source)

Sweden mostly consists of private industry, but many well-funded government social programs are offered. Universal healthcare and government-provided education at all levels is made available.

They may lean towards socialist societies, but they're still democracies.

And the last time I checked, Sweden wasn't oppressing its citizens, but taking care of them. Nor is Sweden taking over the world, unless you include Ikea.

And besides, we already have socialized medicine here in the States. It's called the VA and Medicare.

People don't even know what the fuck they're mad about. They don't even know what's going on, but they're sure pissed about it.

Analysis: 'You lie!' further erodes discourse

I have a different theory. Is it any wonder that Joe "You Lie" Wilson is from South Carolina? Does anyone remember from their American History classes that a vital transcription was left out of the Declaration of Independence because of greedy businessmen (racist plantation owners) in Georgia and South Carolina?

A portion of the original draft of the Declaration of Independence denouncing slavery was removed from the final document in order to secure the unanimous vote needed for approval, Georgia and South Carolina refused to vote for independence as long as this paragraph was in the Declaration. (source)

Imagine... Imagine what our country would be like if it had been born without slavery. If it had truly been born with all people created equal.

I have a distinct feeling that no matter WHAT President Obama proposes, these bigot hillbillies are going to have something to say. And it will never be based in logic. (Health Care Debate Based on Total Lack of Logic)

Thousands march to US Capitol to protest spending

Where were these dumb fuckers when we were about to invade a sovereign nation that had NOTHING to do with 9/11? Where were they when we started learning of the cost of that un-necessary war and the no-bid contracts that followed for companies that had ties to that administration??

And as a veteran myself, HOW DARE they not march against that administration that NEEDLESSLY put our service men and women in harm's way. That administration toyed with lives. Literally sent people to their deaths, all cloaked in lies. And these pieces of shit did nothing. They probably sat on their dumb, trash asses watching Nascar.

And where were these dumb fuckers when our rights were being eroded away in front of our very eyes and we were on the precipice of a fascist state? Fascist America, in 10 easy steps

And who, pray tell, were fascists?

That's Mussolini in case you didn't recognize him standing right side up. (As opposed to being hung upside down in Piazzale Loreto, Milan.)

And of course, this sick fuck.

They were fascists, not socialists. There's a difference.

And when I think of true "Socialists", people that we idolize in history who would most likely seem to be the ones most inclined to take care of the needy, the meek and the weak? Who would seem most likely to be inclined to SHARE??

Well, the first two I think of are;

Big Mama-T


Jazzy J.C.

Yeah, bishes... THINK about it. Mother Teresa was all, "Here, have my soup and we can split this Budweiser." And Jesus was all, "Here, have my sneakers and you can borrow my i-pod." Or something like that...

These extremist freaks who consider themselves "Christians" would kill Jesus Christ all over again. They'd be the first in line to tell him to sell more fish to pay for his cancer treatment, even if his cancer was preventing him from being able to fish.

The emotional fervor that is being stoked in this country is breeding a dangerous environment that has a very possible, violent outcome. And it's not just on the fringe.
