We certainly are living in interesting times, as the old Chinese curse goes. Normal people are forced to share the same air as their very own American Taliban bent on rolling back progress on science, social justice, equal rights and education as they do their best to plunge us all into a new dark age.
Its easy to laugh at these “young Earth” idiots, swaying to an imaginary rhythm in the halls of power as they pray to defeat, of ALL things, health reform – but these transgressions into our supposedly secular government should not be taken lightly.
If the American Taliban had their way, citizens of the USA would be under their thumb the same way Iranian citizens must answer to the Mullahs.
Thomas Jefferson wrote to John Adams in a letter dated April 11, 1823,
“…the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”
Unfortunately for us, that day is not yet upon us and not likely to come in our lifetime.
I often wonder as I listen to the paranoid ramblings of Michelle Bachmann on the floor of the People’s House, what would Thomas Jefferson think of a Christian fruit loop who thinks that Jesus Himself was itching for her to represent Minnesota. Hopefully, soon the citizens of Minnesota will think, and thus vote, otherwise. Until that day, normal people of the United States will continue to be forced to endure incessant attacks on science and REALITY as the people sincerely trying to make health care accessible to ALL Americans, regardless of wealth, are forced to counter fraudulence charges of “death panels” and other various outrageous outright LIES courtesy of the Republican Party.
Jefferson also wrote in a letter to Danbury Baptist Association, CT., Jan. 1, 1802
“Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between church and State.”
The fact is that the Republican Party has absolutely nothing to offer the working people or the poor of this country, so they MUST cloak themselves in religion, lies and fear. They don’t appeal to the best in the human heart and psyche, they appeal to the worst.
Needing a world of chaos and division in order to obtain the political power to advance the causes of the rich over the hollowed-out husks of the working people who far outnumber them, they must CREATE a world of chaos and division.
So the morally bankrupt Republican Party activates their willfully ignorant “Rapture ready” base, by continuously propagating the disingenuous meme that Democrats are “Godless” socialists who want to kill babies, while Republicans are Christ-loving patriots. Never mind the REALITY that abortions actually decrease during Democratic administrations due to the Democratic penchant for reality-based sexual education and family planning, and the abysmal Republican penchant for creating economic catastrophes which make the American Dream an impossible one, Republicans are not shy about exploiting the fear and ignorance of their base by blurring the line between church and state.
Knowing that they had nothing to offer in the realm of health insurance reform, they purposely muddied any attempt at TRUE debate by interjecting lies.
We know we are on the right track when we are attempting to move this country forward and all the opposition can do is counter with the lie of “Death Panels!”
If that’s all they have, then they truly have nothing. Their lack of solutions and false charges illustrates that Republicans have absolutely no ideas and are Hell-bent on maintaining a status quo system which, unconscionable as it is, is extremely profitable for their masters.
The last gasps of the obstructionist Republicans for defeating the health insurance bill had been to implore their idiot followers to pray that at least one Democratic senator would die or become incapacitated to miss the vote.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), a real sick, Republican bastard, got on the Senate floor to ask Republicans everywhere to pray. “What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can’t make the vote tonight,” he said. “That’s what they ought to pray.” Read more here.
That was a dog whistle to the mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, young Earth base and Republican Teabaggers everywhere were mobilized into intercessory prayer circles.
It was obvious that Coburn was hoping that 92-year-old, wheelchair-bound Democratic Senator Robert Byrd would die before the vote.
Jesus must have been on lunch break because Byrd made the vote, but Republican Senator Jim Inhofe didn’t.
This confused the minions who have elevated stupidity to a virtue in the Republican Party and one particularly perplexed idiot called C-SPAN to ask, through tears, whether Coburn had prayed “hard enough.”
“We got our vigil together and took Sen. Coburn’s instructions and prayed real hard that Sen. Byrd would either die or couldn’t show up at the vote the other night. how hard did you pray, because I see one of our members is missing this morning. Did it backfire on us? Did one of our members die?!”
Being a coward, as all Republican inherently are, Coburn did not answer the poor idiot’s question.
Let me answer it here.
Dear Republican idiot, Jesus didn’t listen to your prayers because Jesus IS A LIBERAL! Jesus wants ALL PEOPLE to have access to health care- regardless of their wealth. He’s EXTREMELY upset (like all liberals) that the health bill does not have a PUBLIC OPTION and that it keeps the Insurance racket ghouls securely on their extremely profitable thrones.
He also wants you to stop embarrassing him and go to the nearest homeless shelter to volunteer all your spare time. He also wants you to stop calling talk shows and embarrassing Him.
As I said, we live in interesting times.Click here for reuse options!
