Or as Jesus said Heal the sick, feed the hungry and care for the weakest among us.


Stop right there, as a Christian I'm so sick of hearing this backdoor attack and the steaming pile of stereotype underlying it. The assumption is that because we don't like our earned money stolen by goverenment beuracrats and redistributed without our approval that we are somehow against the poor and less fortunate. Jesus as NOT in favor of confiscatory redistribution of wealth. He would have been for voluntary charitable donations and contributions.


EDIT: Guess I should have read further, it wasn't backdoor whatsoever:


I won't even bother pointing out the #ing irony of your Cross Avatar, references to Jesus and your apparent hatred of anyone poorer then you are. I am just going to assume you think everyone beneath you is too lazy or too stupid to be rich.

*Shrugs*
Corporations are making record profits.
CEO's are making record incomes.
The average worker is making less in a year then they did 40 years ago but the cost of everything else has exploded exponentially.
Obama isn't the one raping you, he is just the guy you are looking at while Big Banks and Big Business have their way with you and your wallet.

Oh, and cause i went to Sunday School and paid attention:



Psalm 82:1-8
A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. ..





Proverbs 31:9
Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Leviticus 25:35
“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you.





Proverbs 31:8-9
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Leviticus 19:9-10
“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. And you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.

Proverbs 28:6
Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.

Proverbs 22:7
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.

True, Corporations are making record profits. They are also paying record taxes and have to raise the price of their goods accordingly to maintain their profit MARGIN.

Do you know the difference between profits and profit margins?

Thank taxes, raising the minimum wage, rapidly rising energy costs and regulations for that. Those costs are passed on to the consumer. Read: "government going up the free market Capitalist system's A."

Are people really arguing over fiat currency and demagoguery of corporations that are nothing, but political machinations rooted in the same political ideology of the current Potus?

Really?

Arguing?

Over that?

Yeah it is really going to be a long 1200 days.

Re-read my post. I'm not against helping those in need. I'm against government stealing people's earned money and redistributing it after skimming off the top. A better, and Biblical model, would be voluntary charitable contributions and donations.

So what your saying, basically, is that the rich have only become greedy recently and that before Obama was in power they were all extremely generous and wanted to share their wealth?

What do you expect from those who bit hook, line, and sinker into the lies of class warfare? I find it absurd people reject the 1982-1992 economic model considering it cause the greatest explosion of GDP% in 200 years.

What's math anyways besides a bunch of goobly-gook numbers n stuff right?

So you don't have a clue what the difference is between profits and profit margins do you? Then there is nothing further I can discuss with you on an economic basis.

What do you think of this current rash of PED's in baseball? Do you think we can ever get to the point where they are completely out of the game altogether?

Except that in 1992 the Glass-Steagall was in effect. Then this happened.



In 1999, Democrats led by President Bill Clinton and Republicans led by Sen. Phil Gramm joined forces to repeal Glass-Steagall at the behest of the big banks. What happened over the next eight years was an almost exact replay of the Roaring Twenties. Once again, banks originated fraudulent loans and once again they sold them to their customers in the form of securities. The bubble peaked in 2007 and collapsed in 2008. The hard-earned knowledge of 1933 had been lost in the arrogance of 1999.


Guess that is poor people's fault.

Of course i know the difference.

As for PED's. I am all for it, especially since the average salary of a baseball player is 2.5 million. For that kind of money i expect them to be on some kind of drug because Baseball is boring as hell and could use a little 'juice'. Frankly, i wish more golfers were taking them, then the game would be amazing.

Sorry. As of 2013 the average salary for a Baseball player is 3.6 million.

I think its cool for the leader of the world to tell his minions to bring him good ideas. He is eager to make changes. Quit griping on him and suggest some ideas. Make yourself useful.

You just defeated your original point.



Praise God. Hopefully we won't be the United Socialist States by then.

I don't think you do know the difference. You never would have made the "record profit" comment if you had. Profits are an irrelevant number if the profit margin remains the same percentage. No one who understands what a profit margin is says "record profits", that's the lauguage of media talking points from people who never passed Econ 101.

This is a rather entertaining circle jerk, but we are wildly off topic now.

You're right, we are all in this together for another 1,200 days, and the picture that comes to mind is:

Who cares? He'll leave, and the next puppet will take his place to further # this populace in the ass with a spiked bat named Lucille.

Some people need to drop the partisan nonsense and stop worshiping the same corporate masters of the same democrats that he hates, and realize that this country has been operating under the auspices of a coup for decades now.
