Well then you may as well admit that Democratic Party and the Republican Party have also done some kind of a switcheroo. The Democrats adopted ideas originally proposed by Republicans and the Republicans became the racists the Democrats originally were. True story.

At one time the top Texas politicos were Democrats. JFK and LBJ and all those alphabet presidents. The guys who created and perpetrated the Vietnam War.

And now the Democrats are Obama and Biden, the guys who are currently creating and perpetrating a Korean War, while keeping the war zones in the Mideast going full tilt boogey.

Wait!! Things didn't change all that much after all. Only the political perception of the people has been altered by the liberal media.

Sadly for the Republican Party, they've been highjacked by the religious right. Which is the main reason the GOP can't win the White House any more. The religious right scares the beejezzus out of everyone. Republicans didn't vote for Romney because he's Mormon. Mormonism didn't fit the religious right scriptures.

Used to be the GOP could make good business decisions. Now everything is predicated on what fits the crucifixion.

Meanwhile, back in the socialist neighborhoods.....Obama has done a marvelous job of keeping the anti-war protestors off the streets. For a while last year there was the Occupy Crowd moaning they couldn't pay back their student loans. While the liberal media didn't mention that Uncle Sam made billions in profits off of student loans, and that today there is only one job available for every three unemployed.

And whatever happened to those pesky Occupiers? Methinks Mayor Bloomberg banned them like they were either 32 ounce sodas or handguns.

What's the upshot? The liberal socialists present the Jungian Duality of Man syndrome by alternately condemning the New World Order, while standing in the NWO food stamp lines.

But, hey....if it wasn't for food stamps we'd have all these college graduates starving to death in their parent's basement. At least the food stamps offer surcease to the parents who've had to endure their college graduated children moving back into the house. Food stamps do put food in the socialist bellies.

Back to the Jungian Duality of Man....how come socialists who are pretty well fed thanks to food stamps are so unhappy all the time?

Rhetorical conundrum.

The Documentary Channel today has an interesting lineup of films about children.

There is 'The War on Kids,' which is being replayed as I write.

Just finished taping 'The Devil's Miner.' It's about a young Bolivian kid who wants to make enough money to move off the mountain and into the city where he can go to school to hopefully become a civil engineer. But the truth is that most kids never get out of the silver mines in Bolivia. And that a miner's life is a very short one.

In case anyone is interested:



Watch The Devil’s Miner Online

‘The Devil’s Miner’ tells the story of 14-year-old Basilio who worships the devil for protection while working in a Bolivian silver mine to support his family.

The Devil's Miner is a 2005 documentary film directed by independent film directors Kief Davidson and Richard Ladkani. The film follows a fourteen-year-old Bolivian boy named Basilio Vargas who along with his twelve-year-old brother Bernardino work in the mines near the city of Potosí. The film includes many subtle realities of the miner's lives such as the need to chew coca leaves to numb the pain of hunger and the long shifts they work regardless of age.[1] The film made its world premier at the Rotterdam film festival and its U.S. debut at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The film concentrates on the concerns of local workers who have fear of what they call “Tio” or devil. In the film, an elder miner claims that over 8 million people have died in the unsafe mines. The workers believe this is because “Tio” controls the mine and that Christ has no power in the mine.

My thoughts are that if you put your beliefs in a false deity you give it strength and it will dominate you. You should only worship or belief in things that reward you and not punish you. Like gods of creativity, knowledge, fertility, strength or the regular traditional religions.

Some cultures observe the Yin and Yang of deities.

You know, like Vishnu and Shiva.

God and Satan.

Job and God.

Abraham and the God who ordered Abraham to kill his son.

Beavis and Butthead...the deities of the MTV culture of atheists.

Now we're not only getting into the Jungian Duality of Man....we're getting into the Jungian Duality of Gods and Devils.

Here's a college kid in his parents basement taking the food stamps you provide:



Why don't you just take them back?

Think about it, prison systems are privately owned and probably make more money than public school systems. How long will it take before its just a place to take your kid to be watched while you go out to work.
