Uproar over a college play in Texas depicting a gay Jesus
This was an eye opener for me. I never realized there was a “Gay Jesus” movement out there, but it’s true. In researching this topic, I stumbled across a web world of folks promoting the idea of a gay Jesus. I guess as a Christian, I am supposed to be outraged, upset, blah blah blah. It probably will not surprise you to learn that most of the people involved in the gay Jesus movement are….well….gay. Oddly enough, I am somewhat amused by the gay Jesus crowd. I am familiar with White Jesus, Black Jesus, and Hispanic Jesus. I suppose many of us, myself included, are guilty of trying to make Jesus like us, as opposed to the other way around. Hey, why not stop with gay Jesus? We should include everyone in the “make Jesus like me” movement. We could have a wheelchair Jesus. How about a mentally challenged Jesus? I got it…..let’s have an unemployed Jesus! In all seriousness, can you imagine what the Muslims would be doing if these college kids launched a play depicting a gay Mohammed? They would have to join that Mohammed cartoon artist, whom I believe is still in hiding along with Salman Rushdie. In fact, I am probably not too safe even suggesting a gay Mohammad play, even as a joke. Of course, Jacksonville’s very own Rev. Jerry Vines made national news after 9/11 by referring to Mohammed as a “Demon possessed pedophile.” I am not sure if I want to mess with a demon possessed pedophile, and I’m not even Catholic. I think my gay, mentally challenged Jesus could take him! There you have it folks! Something offensive for just about everyone! Ahhh…… thankya…thankya….thankya veramuch.
So I guess Socialism isn’t newsworthy
Okay all you Fox News haters. The very bias that you claim is carried out by Fox News is what conservatives have dealt with for many years. Here is an example. Recently, when commenting on the passage of the “Health Care bill” (puke), Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (Democrat from Montana) said, "Too often, much of late, the last couple three years, the mal-distribution of income in American is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy and the middle income class is left behind," he said. "Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America." Do you think this is news? Good Lord Almighty above people!!!! This man, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, has given the most honest and raving endorsement of Socialism we have seen in a long time and who is the only main news source who has picked up? Fox News. Of course, all of the conservative B and C news outlets picked it up from Fox, but not the AP, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, SOB…whatever….you get the idea.
But HERE is BIG BIG news in the mainstream liberal Media. Conservative goddess Ann Coulter had to cancel a speech at the University of Ottawa because of rowdy protesters (Ottawa is in Canada if you liberals want to go get some of that superior health care). So this is news, but it isn’t news when high a ranking Senator espouses Marxism? To be fair, I probably would have criticized the main stream media if they had not reported the Ann Coulter protesters, but my criticism is really aimed at their refusal to carry the comments by the Marxist Senator. By the way, I also learned that almost all conservative icons bring a bodyguard when traveling to college campuses. Yeah, those peaceful, loving liberals don’t have any violent prone idiots in their crowds do they? By the way, still no denouncement of this violence from the left except from the college administrators even though it was college employees that distributed literature that stirred up the crowd.
More Socialism endorsements….
I heard recently that former Democrat Presidential candidate Howard Dean admitted that Obama Care is wealth redistribution. I could not find this story anywhere in the mainstream media, except for FOX. So I set out to find it somewhere that a liberal could be convinced that Howard Dean actually said this. Along comes the wonder of YouTube so here it is. I waste my time, so you don’t have to!
Here is the quote: “When it gets out of wack as it did in the 20’s and as it has now you need to do some redistribution. This is a form of redistribution.”
One more Socialist endorsement for Obama Care…..Fidel Castro himself
Fidel Castro has praised the passage of Obama Care. Of course, he criticizes the U.S. for taking so long to come around to his way of thinking. Maybe our President should meet with Fidel and get some tips on how to stop smoking. Fidel kicked the habit years ago.
Global Warming Causes Violence
That’s right. Just when you think the nut jobs have run out of steam, they come out with this. It seems as though the imaginary global warming, which is caused by man (with no evidence whatsoever…and even some to the contrary) is now the cause of global violence.
Ronald McDonald is apparently persuading kids to become fat
A liberal, anti-capitalist organization has targeted Ronald McDonald for early retirement. While this may sound like a good lawsuit for age discrimination, Ronald isn't going down easy. Truthfully, I had never heard of this "not for profit" organization until I saw this story claiming that Ronald McDonald is making our kids fat. They claim that it is corporately irresponsible for McDonald's to have a clown like character targeting children. Give me a break. Think about this; how do kids get to McDonald's? I mean, I tend to think of a "kid" (not a goat) as someone under 16, perhaps way under 16. How do they get the super sized double cheeseburgers? Is Ronald hanging around the school yard giving them the first one for "free" and telling them that there is "plenty more where that came from?" Of course, this is not the case. Instead, these kids are carted to McDonald's by their parents who give them money to purchase the obesity causing, government regulated, taxed to the hilt, junk food (by the way, they serve salads…they aren’t too bad either). This is all about taking down another corporate symbol. Much like the 9/11 hijackers targeted symbols of America, these anti-capitalists have targeted a symbol of profit and success.
By the way, when did "corporate responsibility" become a requirement anyway? I mean, sure I understand it isn't right to hurt people for financial gain (or any other gain for that matter…such as political gain), but think about all of the goods and services that exist because of someone’s ignorance or downright stupidity. How many different pieces of exercise equipment are lying dormant in homes across America? They all have very attractive warranties because the vendor knew we wouldn't use it enough to break it. What about the weight loss programs where you buy their food? There is no magic pixie dust in the food. It is discipline packaged in a small proportioned box. Is this corporate responsibility?
By the way, this is the same group of tree hugging wackos that want to outlaw plastic water bottles and replace them with water filters on our taps at home. Have you ever sat through a water filter sales pitch? Yeah, now that's some corporate responsibility! This is a group that is promoting militant environmentalism, while trying to destroy capitalism at the same time. Yeah, there is a big difference between "not for profit" and "anti-profit."
Mission Statement for Chuck's new company: “We are here to provide an attractive and highly sought after product to a growing market. We do this so we may earn a profit. The amount of this profit is directly attributable to our success. We maximize our profit legally and ethically, while eliminating our competition by producing the best product at the most attractive price. We have no intention of making the world a better place with our product. Although all of us as individuals have a moral obligation to be upstanding citizens and help human kind through our own personal resources, the company does not produce our product for this purpose.”
Don't look for these new energy star approved products on store shelves anytime soon
So you think that energy star seal of approval on your appliances is saving you money, while helping the environment? Think again. A recent Federal investigation found that the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, who jointly manage the Energy Star Program, granted Energy Star certifications to bogus products that were anything but energy efficient. Among the certified products was a gasoline powered alarm clock and a "air cleaner", which was produced by attaching a feather duster and fly paper to a space heater (pictured here). Don't forget folks….this is the same government that will now be managing your health care and making decisions about your treatment.
Please….Let Me Help
Believe it or not, I sometimes receive comments on my blog via the anonymous feedback link. Although I have the option, I rarely post the comments to my blog. Somehow, other blog sites have picked up my posting of the rumored quote from Benjamin Franklin, “When people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic.” As a result, I receive comments from unknown sources about this particular posting all the time. Although the mainstream media would have us believe that conservatives have cornered the market on anger, most of the comments I receive are liberal aligned rants spewing ignorance and hatred from the left. I received a comment the other day that I have to share because it so clearly illustrates the ridiculous arguments from the left. Let’s face it, this is why liberals cannot get a foothold in talk radio or on heads up television. The simple truth is that liberal logic is….well….that is an oxymoron in itself. Liberals have to disguise their message as movies, music, poetry, or news. Any other way just doesn’t work. Unfortunately, these are some of the most powerful outlets in our country. At any rate, here is the feedback along with my commentary:
“the problem is: the upper bracket is paying an increased percentage of there [their] higher income. If the tax rate is say 10%, I make 100 so i pay 10$ in taxes. Then mr. bottom bracket comes along and also pays 10% (in rl the % would be different of course)but he only makes 10$ so he pays 1$ in taxes. however the stats would show that im paying 91% of the collected taxes.” First of all, if you are the writer of this, read this blog and consider me a friend, we need to talk. It’s okay that you are ignorant about these things. This is why you trust my counsel and need me to help you through your ignorance. For starters, while your cute little two tax payer scenario is mathematically correct, it stops there. This scenario is not even close to our federal system of income taxation. In short, even aside from your ridiculous two tax payer example, it assumes no progressive tax. If you do not understand our current progressive tax system (the 2nd point in Karl Marx’ 10 planks of Communism incidentally), you really should seek to understand. Perhaps you have never earned your way through the first tax bracket (notice that I didn’t say “bottom”…man, I am getting way too nice), or maybe you suffer from Wealth Envy, which is not covered under Obama care. In any case, let me know when you are done enjoying all the rides in Fantasyland and you are ready to come over to Realityland. I will be glad to help. No lines…..no waiting (yes, I know it is hard to believe there are no lines anxiously awaiting my counsel).
Tanned Tushie tax
Tanning beds are taxed under Obama Care and these business owners are HOT! I wonder how many of them voted for Obama. My guess is a lot of them. It’s only a mistake if you make it twice!
NY salt ban
Politicians in New York are trying to make it illegal for restaurant chefs to use salt when they cook. That should do wonders to bring back the businesses that have fled the city because of regulation and taxes.
I must admit, I am a little skeptical of this story, but it is not out of the realm of possibility. We have already been attacked by the Fruit of Kaboom underwear bomber, so why not a female boobie bomber? A terrorist expert claims that Al Qaeda doctors have been trained in Britain and recruited women to have explosives planted inside their breasts for suicide missions. Watch for the next news story….”TSA refuses to allow 3 big bosomed Muslim women to board plane.” Of course, there will be a lawsuit, but think of the blog material!
