Just So The World Understands the GOP in the USA « vegasjessie.

 

As we’ve learned from recent polling, George W Bush is the least popular living president. What does he and his party represent? I found the perfect summary for those living in and out of the USA.

GOP Beliefs

You can rest assured, Willard Romney will strictly adhere to these principles. After all, he was a severely conservative governor that panders to the far right without giving any of their insanity a second thought.

More Fun With Conservative Jesus « vegasjessie

More Fun With Conservative Jesus « vegasjessie.

 

After yesterday’s depressing defeat of the middle class and the decimation of unions, I needed to find a pick-me-up that explains it all. There’s got to be a reason so many poor and middle class folks vote completely against their own interests. Don’t get me wrong, there were a bunch of good Christians who voted to recall Scott Walker. But many of those Christians were outnumbered and outspent by a conservative faction of alleged followers of this Jesus guy.

Alas, I found it! It’s right here in the Conservative Bible, also synonymous with the Book of Mormon.

No need to worry about anyone else. The Koch brothers and Citizen’s United have taught us all how to value selfishness as a virtue. Basically, we’ve come full circle with Gordon Gekko’s greed is good philosophy and we can thank our Supreme Court for reaffirming this fallacy. As a Christian nation, we must justify not caring one iota about our neighbors in need. Just look to the GOP “good book” for answers. How else can we rationalize cutting WIC and SNAP?

I wonder what Joseph Smith really thought about ethics, as he is, after all, Mitt Romney’s prophet. Many have claimed he was a swindler and a charlatan, so an absence of ethics are of no consequence. Willard and the GOP are simply faux followers of Christ’s teachings, which are possibly fabricated.

Two thousand years was a long time ago. Impossible to unequivocally prove he said anything. We have holes in our knowledge of something as recent as Colonial American history, so why is this Aramaic account considered infallible and unimpeachable? Not to me. Especially if we base our characterization of his ancient followers on who loudly and proudly claim allegiance to him today. It’s a way to get folks to follow with blind allegiance and donate money. That’s really what this Christian faction is all about. A perfect front for the GOP.

Do We Need More Military Spending, Willard Romney? « vegasjessie

Do We Need More Military Spending, Willard Romney? « vegasjessie.

 

Can you believe Willard Romney wants to increase military spending by $2.1 trillion?? The Roman Empire overextended itself militarily and that lead to its eventual demise. Can’t we learn from history? Not if history is no longer taught in our schools. Willard and his cronies want to defund and privatize it to the point where Americans won’t even be able to read this chart.

Remember, a vote for Willard is a vote to bankrupt America. He’ll embroil us in more wars. Don’t doubt this for a second. Obama2012!!

No One Preaches Hate Better Than America’s Christian Right « vegasjessie

Ku Klux Klan kids

There are good people in every walk of life. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and any other mono or polytheistic group has their share of good people. But there are so many hate groups in this country which teach children to discriminate, ridicule and hate good and young. Christians, including Mormons, have taught their children they are superior to minorities and gays for ages. Obviously, the slavery and Jim Crow laws in our nation’s sordid past have shown our proclivity towards institutionalized discrimination and hate. The KKK has experienced an increase in membership since Obama was elected.

Christian Terrorist Groups like the KKK compare themselves to Jesus. The goals of the KKK included, from an early time on, an intent to “reestablish Protestant Christian values in America by any means possible,” and believe that “Jesus was the first Klansman. They used horrible violent techniques like lynching, tar and feathering and public hangings to further their barbaric evil objectives of white domination. Of course the Old Testament is filled with hateful Klan-like tenets such as slavery ownership, mass genocide (Deuteronomy 7:1-2), and death for homosexuality. However Jesus preached none of these things, allegedly (sorry, I’m a skeptic heathen).

Watch as this FOUR year old addresses his congregation. He sings ain’t no homo gonna get into heaven. Notice the thunderous cheers and applause?He has no idea what a homo is, but now he knows he’s supposed to hate them. We’ve all seen the Mormon Church’s position on the issue of homosexuality too.

Boyd Packer, LDS Preacher speaks of the evil espoused in the good book towards homosexuals. However, if their goal in life is to become more
like Christ, why, then, do we fixate so much of our attention on
condemning homosexuality, a subject that Christ did not address a single
time in his earthly ministry?
. Obviously the millions of dollars Willard Romney and his Mormon Church spent on passing Proposition 8 in Californiashows their utter disdain for homosexuals and their damned “rights.”

Another group, Focus on the Family, seems utterly obsessed with teaching their kids and teens to hate gays. The Day of Dialogue is a day where it’s ok for GLBT teens to be teased and taunted. It’s the answer to the teenagers’ noble desire to address gay awareness and tolerance with the National Day of Silence. Coincidentally, on April 19th (same day as the OKC terrorist attacks…) Focus on the (hateful) Family simultaneously planned their event. Their plan was tointimidate and harrass gay and lesbian youth. Is this what Jesus would do? Apparently many children are raised to think this way. Thankfully there are some good ones out there who recognize this as wrong. However, with the continued rise of the TeaParty and the religious right, it’s not likely hateful parents will stop teaching their kids to hate too, all in the name of Jesus.

Governor Walker and Willard Romney could care less about the American worker and it’s about time we stop them in their selfish quest to do away with our rights! I’m calling on you Wisconsin to do the right thing Tuesday. Please recall Governor Walker!
