  1. Over at Visionary Womanhood, Wemmick Girl (?) has a new post up concerning the evils of socialism. In itself, that isn't a new topic for our favorite fundamentalists: They love Caesar's money and are loathe to part with one red cent of it when they believe it may go towards helping someone they consider unworthy. WG takes that histrionic whining a step further, however, infecting the internet with a post called, “True of Forced Charity?†Here's how she begins: WG sees no disconnect at all between introducing her shoddy, fact-free ideas with that condescending back-hand while at the same time referring to other people as “guilt manipulators†later in her article. Why yes that does sound familiar. Now where have I read something like that before? Oh yeah! Spooooooooooky. *GASP* Not socialism. Why that's worse than homosexuality and Obama put together! I live in Canada and our hybrid economy seems to be working fairly well for us. The same is true for countries in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe. (WG fails to grasp here is that Communism and Socialism are not the the same thing; the two terms are not interchangeable.) Uh huh; because WG's piece has nothing whatsoever to do with propaganda. She's telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth – and objectively, too! (Writing like hers is part of the reason why the term 'Christian' has become synonymous with “pig-ignorant liar†for some people.) Biblical charity was not voluntary; it was compulsory. Put down the John Birch crap and actually read your Bible. No; arresting people and locking them up forever without charging them is tyranny. Genocidal policies are tyranny. Government censorship is tyranny. Taxation is not tyranny. It's the buy-in people who can afford it must make to participate in the social contract with all its attendant benefits. And from this common purse - civil, state/provincial, and federal - we get roads, fire departments, police protection, military strength, public education, and the social safety net. If you don't like paying taxes, don't pay them. Just work under the table. Steal the roads the rest of us pay for. Steal the police protection the rest of us pay for. Benefit by our humane social contract without contributing a damned thing to it. It's what Jesus would want. ...which explains why Bill Gates and Warren Buffet both live in the slums without the benefit of indoor plumbing: They created so much, and then the tyrannical government took it all away. Amirite? The only place in the West where that happens is in your fever dreams, dimbulb. And exactly how should one go about doing that? By making the poor beg and grovel as if they were subhuman and undeserving before they can have access to the pittance you may finally give them in your efforts to win brownie points with God. Well of course you'll feel better about yourself, having found someone over whom you can exercise an inordinate amount of control by using the threat of starvation as a means to gain their compliance. ...or you could do the right thing, pay your tithe and your tax, allow the poor confidentiality and dignity in their request for help from social services, and just be thankful for you what you have (rather than being an ungrateful bastard and whining about how others are always getting the benefits you deserve). Yeah, right, The politicized religious right wing is one of the most mean-spirited, miserly, amoral, cramped movements ever to pollute the social discourse – and WG is solidly in their corner. The economy of grace modelled by Jesus – i.e., he gave lavishly and daily without hope of return – is a kind of socialism. (If you don't like that fact, do the morally honest thing and quit claiming to be a Christian.) WG then goes on to post a bunch of horseshit from a book called, “Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt Manipulators.†I don't have the patience to beat on some more empty rubber dummies right now, however, so I'll end this post here.
  2. The stoopid here runs right into the comments as usual. OMG! How dare the state ask us to show that we have an actual bedroom built for the children we want to adopt?! It's so unfair! And..and...my husband works so hard and they take his MONEY TO FEED PEOPLE. Well, I never. I won't even add how Miss Meth Brows has had her house re-built, but she mouths off about the evils of Socialism. Hey Fundies! What say you stay off my roads and out of my libraries and you don't freakin' vote? How would that be? http://www.generationcedar.com/main/201 ... l#comments
  3. Why are so many people on the right--this asshole in Norway, the Tea Party, GBot--so obsessed with Marxists and socialists? Why is being a socialist tantamount to sympathizing with Stalin? And how do these people reconcile the teachings of Jesus with their anti-socialist paranoia? TIA.
