“No Such Thing as Marital Rape!”—God

In my mind, if it wasn’t violent or you didn’t cry for help, that wasn’t rape, that was fornication. If it was violent and you did cry out, it was still only rape if you didn’t happen to belong to your assailant (Deut. 22:23-24).

Rape was a one-time thing, a life and death situation, not something that happens with people who love you, and certainly not from your own husband. Marital rape? No such thing!

MY WET DREAM IN A SHORT VIDEO

Watch Closely–This Video is Priceless!!!

A TALE OF TWO CANCERS

This should be of interest to every person concerned about medial bills mounting regardless if they have insurance—the cheaper policies will certainly bankrupt anyone with a life threatening illness or injury.

Conservatives believe that the health of all citizens-even that of children–should be a marketable commodity on Wall Street. Do you?

And, by the way, I recently had a colonoscopy right here in the U.S.A. I had to wait two months. Good thing that it turned out well. So, U.S. citizens have to wait for non emergency health concerns as well. I certainly don’t mind that. Take a close listen to this video and think about it.

Does Anyone Disagree with this Message?

It cannot be stressed enough. Robert Reich’s message in this video needs to be shared by all who understand, or are seeking to understand, that the root cause of government dysfunction—the root cause of virtually all hot button issues setting Americans at loggerheads—is money in politics. For those who might be blaming the left or the right, it must be understood why BOTH are at fault, with few, individual exceptions.

This IS the number one issue. Listen to this video and share it. Tweet it. Post it where ever you can.

I don’t care if you are conservative, liberal, progressive or far, far right evangelical, this message is for everyone.

Who is there who does not agree with Reich?

ROOT ROT: The Cause of Corruption in Government

Corporate and government

Why can’t we ever learn? FOLLOW THE FRIGGIN’ MONEY!

I’ve been making MONEY IN POLITICS my major argument for the ROOT CAUSE of virtually all that is wrong in our Government–in economics, the healthcare “debate,” gun violence control, poverty, etc, etc. .

“Our government?” NAY, our corporate government (we continue to let it happen)!

The ONLY candidate who wanted to stop it was Bernie Sanders. But all corporate America had to do was to keep their elected congressional representatives and Senators in Washington (otherwise called conservatives and blue dogs) repeating (without qualification) to the public that Sanders is a Socialist, and since most of the public has never had an education in civics or in the argumentative fallacies (critical thinking), and because we’ve been nurtured for the past century to belive that socialism is equivalent to old Soviet style communism, they run from him no matter what he says, and into the arms of our corporate congress.

But, you say, conservatives passed a bipartisan bill in 2016 that would severely cut back on the ability of corporations to keep pumping the nation full of opioids?

Yep. sure did. McConnell helped it pass. But that was only FOR SHOW to their voters. They then refused to fund the program. It’s all a dance. It’s the dance called the Side Step. Now you see me doing the right thing, but then you don’t see me refusing to let the right thing happen–tah ta tah ta tah dance dance dance, money money money!

Trump and many politicians have said a lot in favor of curbing corporate power, but how many times does Trump softly say the right things–what people WANT to hear, but then turn around and do the opposite? He is the consummate con man liar as are all who blocked the funding (probably by poison pill clauses or amendments). It would take some digging to find out, so they know they are safe and will be reelected with the financial help of the pharmaceutical corporations–otherwise called legal bribery.

And many wonder why conservatives and almost all liberals refuse to make higher education tuition free for all, as Sanders was advocating, and have the super wealthy (those who benefit from money in politics) pay for it. An educated public (in the humanities) would see these self-serving rats for who they are and could not be propagandized nearly as easily as they are now.

Donald Trump was not wrong. Hours before his nominee for “drug czar” withdrew from consideration over his part in a law limiting the Drug Enforcement Administration’s ability to crack down on pharmaceutical distributors feeding the US’s opioid epidemic, the president took a shot at the influence of drug companies over Congress.

— Max T. Furr is author of The Empathy Imperative, a philosophical novel exploring the nature justice and religious belief.

Was Descartes wrong and God was a deceiver, after all?

Consider that if the Christian Bible were true (sans contradictions), then what would that say of objective science, such as astronomy, biological evolution and medical research? Indeed, what would it say about logic and the Creator, Itself?

What would the world be like had it been created by a truly benevolent god and our primary motivating force was empathy, not self interest? How, indeed, with the human condition as it is, could we achieve such a world either via a god or by humanism?

Join humanist Professor M. Jefferson Hale as, in part II, he puts God on the witness stand in an ethereal court to answer for Its malfeasance and terrorism.

A Darkly Humorous Window into the Future of Reliable News in the U.S.

NOTE: I have vetted the claims put forth in John Oliver’s segment on Sinclair Broadcasting’s greasing of the slope upon which the United States is sliding toward permanent one party rule by the wealthy and the privileged. While Oliver’s segment is presented in a humorous setting, his facts are all too true.

The following is only one part of the ongoing effort of the political, corporatist and quasi religious, conservative right to gain permanent and exclusive power, and it is likely the most frightening one. It is one that, under the guise of free speech and the ongoing deregulation of the broadcast industry, is psychologically nurturing the nation’s public to unwittingly support their efforts.

Currently, I’m working on the major events in our history that have brought us to these darkening, religio-political skies.


 

Max T. Furr is author of The Empathy Imperative, a novel of political intrigue featuring the factual history of the rise of the modern neoconservatives, their political philosophy and worldview.

While the storyline in part 1 is based on biblical literality, part 2 features a trial of God in The Ethereal Court of Answers.

The overall thrust of the novel is an analysis of religious cognitive dissonance where modern views come into conflict with the Old Testament’s alleged actions of God.

Is the god of the Bible amoral? Do true-believers believe that whatever their god does, he does because it is the moral and right thing to do, or are his actions right and moral because they are his actions? —A paraphrasing of a question originally posited by Socrates.

 

DONALD TRUMP: The Unvarnished Evangelical Christian

. . . [T]he Southern Baptist reluctance to condemn white supremacy outright may be egregious but it is not illogical. This Convention came into existence over the defense of slavery.  —Daniel José Camacho

I’ve been trying to analyse a perplexing question: Why do ~80% of Christian evangelicals enthusiastically support Donald Trump, who is about as antithetical to their professed belief in, and adherence to, the preachings of Jesus as one can be? Is Trump the very model of the unvarnished, evangelical Christian? Was the failure of writer’s of the Gospels to have Jesus denounce slavery the very germ that infected the doctrine for centuries to come, including our own?

This commentary by Daniel José Camacho lays out the explanation with which I was toying, and it makes perfect sense. But while I agree with the author’s solution, I think it will take at least the better part of another millennium to happen.

donald-trump-capt-queegCondemning white supremacy and the alt-right movement shouldn’t be hard. But the Southern Baptist Convention – the nation’s largest Protestant denomination– had its doubts about whether to do so this week.
