“Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life ?”
“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied.
“There is only One who is good.
If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”
~ Matthew 19
How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
"Romney types, of course, are the ones who sign the front of the paycheck, and the Obama types are the one who have spent their entire lives signing the back of them," she said."Since June of 2009 or so, we have seen 2.4 million private sector jobs created, but we've had 3.1 million people going on Social Security disability," said West, R-Palm Beach Gardens. "So once again, we are creating the sense of economic dependence, which, to me, is a form of modern 21st-century slavery." WELL excuse me, Mr. Healthy Allen West for getting a pancreatic tumor and having to stop work, never mind that I was PAYING INTO THE FUCKING SYSTEM with every paycheck for 30 years before that but hey I am just a stupid worker.Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth....Ayn Rand or Jesus Christ? Conservatives Can't Have It Both Ways This is the ultimate irony in American political life right now, the conservatives who swear on a stack of Bibles that they worship Jesus Christ when they really bow down to the philosophy of Ayn Rand and the golden idol of the free market to be placed at the center of all other things. They preach of an American exceptionalism blessed by a Christian God, and call for America to be a shining city on a hill which can be an example to the entire world. Yet their exceptionalism isn't based on our country being moral the way Jesus would have understood it, but moral the way Rand and the Social Darwinists of the 1880s and '90s would have understood it: whoever gets rich deserves to be, and whoever is poor is a leech on society. Their vision of America is shining because of the gold the wealthy among us possess, not because our society as a whole is built on morality.
