Money the Root of all Evil!

It has been said that money is the root of all evil…I don’t know, I have never had enough money to know if it is evil or not.

Wealth Care not Health Care

September 29, 2009 on 5:39 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics, Religion, The Body and Things | No Comments

Don’t like the idea of government sticking its nose into your health? There is a group out there that agrees with you! And they are hopping mad! They like you firmly believe that if people don’t have and can’t afford health care, it is their fault and that God hates them.

Like you one of the things they believe is that if you can’t afford to go to the doctor, that it should not be a problem as bandages and ibuprofen are cheap. So what is the issue?

As to death panels by the government their belief is that their companies decide that issue well enough on their own and the government should not get in the way of death panels for profit.

As to rationing health care they firmly believe it is their job to do that.

And like the right, they believe that socialism must be stopped and so they propose that we stop Medicare and even VA benefits.

And of course they believe that nothing says freedom like denying claims for health care.

I would say that if their belief’s can be summed up in just a few words, it would be this:

If We ain’t broke don’t fix it!

Capitalism VS the Government?

Capitalism vs. the Government

 

I believe in Capitalism when I think I can get ahead of the other guy.

 

I believe in Government controls when I think the other guy might get unfairly ahead of me.

 

Can I have it both ways and still be a Capitalist?

Subject: Divorce agreement

Re: FW: Divorce agreement

 

 

Subject: FW: Divorce agreement

 

As an American Liberal I chose to contest this divorce agreement. I cannot in good conscious agree to these terms, for reasons I shall lay out in the following answer.

 

 

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives,

socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

 

We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole

of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.

 

In truth this relationship predates the American Revolutionary War. Yes there have been tough times I will agree that. Often times with sides just short of actual killing wars with each other.

 

 

I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future

generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course.

 

You say that we have tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations. Yet if you honestly look back at the relationship, you will see, we have played off each others strengths and weaknesses and so in the process we have in fact make each other stronger.

 

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let’s just end it on friendly terms.

 

Your argument says that our two ideological sides can not agree on what is right. Yet in all the arguments though out the centuries we have all on both sides, more or less come to agree that baseball, hotdogs , apple pies and moms are really what America is all about!

 

We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

 

If our differences are irreconcilable, it is not because our goal is not the same. It is because we refuse to accept that differences that come from our desire to have a better world and the methods we should use to get there.

 

Here is a model separation agreement:

 

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by

landmass each taking a portion.

 

To divide up the land mass would create a crisis unparalleled in the history of the USA.  Both sides would end up with a shortage of food and of resources, both elemental and human.

 

That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement.

 

This would not be possible. As the liberals would get most of the modern technology and the conservatives would get most of the elemental properties. So that, again, it would be a lose, lose situation.

 

After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

 

Can anyone really believe that is true? The liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al; would end up with most of the architects, techno geeks, musicians, doctors, thinkers, public service gurus and writers.  While the Social conservatives, capitalists and all would end up with most of the farm hands, the carpenters, the truck drivers and electrical plant laborers, the nurses’ aids and computer repair people. Sorry folks, but for a society to work it takes both the thinkers and doers.

 

We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

 

You say you don’t like redistributive taxes but I notice that most conservative farmers are in a hurry to get their social welfare checks to grow or not grow their crops. And that the conservative military contractors find that they should get 400 bucks US for a Hardware Hank, 5 dollar US toilet seat. Nor do the conservative law makers find it repulsive to give themselves big raises. Of course it has always been a case of socialism for the rich but capitalism for the poor! Will the poor ever learn?

 

You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

 

We will take these as they are good for a country. Just remember when the totalitarian state you want, comes to arrest you for something you did not do, there will be no judges or human rights groups there to remind the state that you have rights to a attorney or attorneys or to remind them that you have a right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Or that you have a right to a jury trial. And that they must treat you humanely.

 

 

Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

 

As one that enjoys shooting guns myself, I reject the notion that liberals hate guns, and therefore refuse to leave you have the firearms totally to yourself.

 

I will whole heartily agree that I hate war! But so too, don’t most conservative types? Or is it really, true, that conservatives love to kill everything including babies and pregnant women?

 

Cops we recognize in a fallen world as an unwanted but necessary evil.

 

As to the NRA, by which I assume you mean the National Rife Association?  What good are they? They do no more then support the notion that guns are about hunting! They do not support your constitutional right to keep and bear arms that could really protect your rights against the very thing that you accuse the liberals in the government of trying to take from you! The totalitarian state which you seem to want so badly will, as you so eloquently state, take your guns from your cold dead fingers and feel no remorse about it.

 

You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).

 

Actually we would, want you to keep Oprah as she represents capitalism and conservatism so well. She really is, “it’s all about me,’ type of person which represents your belief’s so well.

 

Michael Moore, we can take him while far too capitalist for us liberals we do find he has some good points. He makes us question what we believe in and why? And that is good.

 

We will take Rosie O’Donnell too as she is funny and we understand that comic relief is past your finite understanding.

 

As to moving them? Don’t you know that is why we have 49 CC motor scooters?

 

But what do we do about the Beetles for sure a liberal counter society group but also much loved by an older generation of conservatives? And Elvis for the same reason?

 

As a liberal I ask do you really want to go though this divorce? If so we claim the likes of Tennessee Ernie Ford, Willie Nelson, among others for their strong belief in family and righteousness.

 

While appearing counter conservative we give you Madonna, the Material Girl as she represents the conservative, capitalistic world view, very well.

 

 

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

 

You can have them, because we know that you will have to come crawling to us for the techno toys they need to run their companies and we will take a fair profit and still be richer then you.

 

You can have your beloved homeless,

 

No problem but what will your bosses threaten you with? Isn’t their argument, that there are always people that willing take your job?

 

 homeboys,

 

You mean close friends? Yeah guess as a conservative you don’t have many of them?

 

Or I am guessing that what you really mean is homosexuals? Which is way down on the list of definitions of homeboys, most people would not even guess that is what you meant! We have no problem with homosexuals unless you mean the likes of… Representive Mark Foley, Senator Larry Craig, Pastor Ted Haggard. To be fair of course, there are others of good repute that we would have no problem with.

 

 hippies

 

Hippies? You mean the ones that came back from Vietnam with long hair and a conviction that killing others was wrong?  Or do you mean the long haired conservatives that want people to think that they are hip but believe war is all glory? Yet they themselves have never seen action in a war where they had to kill someone. Yeah we will take the first with all their  emotional issues. You can keep the other group.

 

and illegal aliens.

 

If we take them, who’s going to clean your houses and cook your food and work the fields?

 

We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.

 

Yeah you need the Alaskan fear mongering hot hockey moms, that will tell you that they need to take your guns for the good of the world after their greedy CEO’S, crash your economic system and you try to revolt with guns that are no match for air to ground missiles mounted on choppers and fighter jets. And yeah, at least having the rednecks, will leave you a little better off, as you will need someone to teach you how to break store windows so you can steal what little food that is left after the collapse.

 

We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.

 

Us, liberals will take the Bibles as a good share of us, believe, in God and try to be like Christ.

 

We will give you NBC and Hollywood as mostly what comes out of them is pro conservative, pro capitalist and pro military hate propaganda any way.  Besides with your rednecks assuming your society lasts that long within 30 years 95% of your population won’t be able to read anyway. It is after all waste of effort to teach farm hands and bedpan handlers how to read.  Besides rednecks don’t see no reason to it, anyhow. Right?

 

 

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine

 

Why is peace a bad thing?

 

 and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

 

And that proves what? That you have the bigger hammer? Oh well they will still hate you after you win so you will never get to sleep without one eye open.

 

You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.

 

Sure we want them, as they will keep us honest enough to ask the question of if what we are doing is right or wrong.  Only a totalitarian state desires that no one asks any the hard questions. And remember that what a government does to other countries, they will also do to their own people.

 

When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

 

As will we but first we will try peaceful means. Of course your way controls your internal population far better. And in all honesty keeps down the number of rednecks you have to feed.

 

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values..

 

Truthfully I doubt that. But will deal with that below by the songs, mentioned.

 

You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain.

 

We have no problem with that as long as they remember that their rights end where our nose begins.  As Ishmael in Moby Dick pointed out, it is better to sleep with a drunken cannibal then a sober Christian.

 

You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

 

Being liberals we don’t need the U.N. But how will your bosses control Europe and the other countries with out a disguise to hide their invading armies, behind? Of course we can look at the fact that more violent control will control your population better. And not knowing how to read, what will your people have to do at night, besides make more babies to grow up to be killed in a war somewhere?

 

 

We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars.

You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

 

Well, these things are all basically techno toys today, so we will take them as you will have no way to keep them running.

 

You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.

 

Having the money we make from selling our services to everyone else we will have the practicing doctors.

 

We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

 

You are right it is a luxury and we understand that. But we also understand that not keeping people healthy disrupts society and makes the economic wheel slow down or even stop because sick and dieing people can’t work.

 

But of course you believe in the survival of the fittest. So if you lose half your work force to sickness the next group up the food chain will have to replace them. But as long as the people at the top don’t have to work there is no problem. For  your sake I hope you are on the top of that food chain!

 

 

We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem.

 

Hummm, you mean that when we are down in the Caribbean Islands we can’t drink to them? Bummer!

 

I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach the World

to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

 

Songs, well I guess being we get the song Imagine we also get the Beetles!

Cool, if one likes the Beetles.

 

And we get the song, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.” COOL!  Part of the chorus goes like this, “I’d like to teach the world to sing In perfect harmony I’d like to hold it in my arms And keep it company,” Is it wrong to want to be at peace with others? But of course the truth is even the greedy CEO’s at Coca-Cola™  understood that as a non military company they could sell more product and make more money in peace time then in war time. So the original, “I’d like to Teach the World to Sing,” song was a jingle for Coke. I am guessing the greedy CEO’s at Wal-Mart™ understand that too!

 

“We are the World,” A Michael Jackson song while not a big fan of his because he tends to represent what the capitalists believe is good, I do like this song.

 

Part of it goes like this:

 

When you’re down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There’s no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change will only come
When we stand together as one[Chorus]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

 

 

 

Again I wonder what is wrong about wanting to make the world a kinder, gentler place. Don’t Christians believe we are all Children of God?  And that we are to make the world a better place?  But again this goes against the survival of the fittest belief.  Oh well, I guess being the farm hands don’t get insurance and the nurses aids cant afford to go to the doctors in the hospitals they work at in your society they will soon die then you can take their place. And in 40 or 50 years your totalitarian state will be so sick the liberals that you hate so much will have to come in and clean up your mess, so they can live in peace.

 

I saved the Kum Ba Ya song for here because you really need to read the whole song:

 

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

 

Someone’s laughing, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s laughing, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s laughing, Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

 

Someone’s crying, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s crying, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s crying, Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

 

Someone’s praying, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s praying, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s praying, Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

 

Someone’s singing, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s singing, Lord, kum ba yah!

Someone’s singing, Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

 

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah!

O Lord, kum ba yah!

The only reasonable assumption that can be make is that the person that came up with this Divorce Agreement is an rightwing conservative atheist and their true purpose is to destroy Christianity!

 

Kum ba yah means “come by here.” So the translation is this:

 

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

O Lord, come by here!

 

Someone’s laughing, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s laughing, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s laughing, Lord, come by here!

O Lord, come by here!

 

Someone’s crying, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s crying, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s crying, Lord, come by here!

O Lord, come by here!

 

Someone’s praying, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s praying, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s praying, Lord, come by here!

O Lord, Come by here!

 

Someone’s singing, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s singing, Lord, come by here!

Someone’s singing, Lord, come by here!

O Lord, come by here!

 

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

Come by here, my Lord, come by here!

O Lord, come by here!

 

Isn’t that what a Christian wants, for the Lord to come closer to them?  My understanding of this letter, is that it is not, the Christian’s desire, to come closer to the Lord. So I ask what need is it for a conservative to have a Bible?

 

 

We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can give

trickle up poverty your best shot.

 

Trickle down economics did not work under Reagan and it will not work today. Hey let’s give more money to the banks to bail them out so us rednecks will get some money from it!

 

Poverty is caused by greed.

 

Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

 

As a liberal the name United States of America, does not offend me. As a liberal history buff our history does not offend me. Though I to admit that conservatives that don’t know bull about the history of the USA does. As do their simplistic unthought out answers to history and to problems the USA is facing. When I see the USA flag I am as patriotic as most conservatives. The flag reminds me of all that mankind can be! But it also reminds me of how bad people can be and that makes me sad!  

 

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other

like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just

hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you ANWAR which one

of us will need whose help in 15 years.

 

The fact is that liberals and conservatives need to play off of each other because it makes them and their country stronger.

 

If you think that this makes some sense perhaps you would pass this along.

 

Another war? Why do we need a war? Besides the conservatives would most likely lose as all the neat techno toys will be owned by the liberals and their children will be able to read and write so even if the liberals lost they would still control the victors, because they would need their skills.

 

Sincerely,

 

John J. Wall Law

 

Student and an American

 

P.S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with

you.

 

 

This liberal wonders why the conservatives want to give us Barbara Streisand and Jane Fonda?  What?  They only like to, kill and rape little boys and girls?

 

The above is to be considered satire and does not reflect any hatred toward any persons. Though it does reflect a hatred toward simplistic answers to complex issues.

 

Satirely yours,

 

OH

John Lennon and the Vatican?

November 23, 2008 on 7:08 pm | In Oh Yeah, Religion | No Comments

It was reported this past week that the Vatican newspaper has forgiven a young John Lennon for a remark about the Beetles being more famous then Jesus Christ. They called it a boastful remark by a “young man grappling with sudden fame.” From Reuters

It seems strange to me that remark make some forty years ago back in 1966 requires a article in the Vatican newspaper? Or perhaps it does? The newspaper was marking the 40th Anniversary of the album of the Beetles called “The White Album.” Perhaps it is just a reflection of the change of the guards at the Vatican. As much as I hate to admit it, I too am getting older and part of the getting older involves taking over the positions of responsibility in ones society. The children of the 1950’s to the 1970’s are truly taking over the high positions in the world.

While the time has come for that change to happen, it is good to remember that we too one day will be the Old Guard and the guard again will change to a new group of younger whipper snappers who also think they have the right answers and also know all the right questions. And like us they too will learn soon enough that the world is not full of easy answers. It is time for that cup to have passed. Perhaps we can with the Lords help at least not make the world any worse then it is today when it is our turn to pass the cup forward to a new generation of whipper snappers.

A new Guard has risen.
