But I don't have to be nice.


"You know you are a (fundamentalist)Christian when you vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of your god."

"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them".-- Pat Robertson, The 700 Club ,Jan. 14, 1991

Anotherwords: " I don't have to be nice to anyone that does not share my beliefs." -and that position is a very dangerous position for a very wealthy, influential media maven to have. That is, for the rest of us, not for him. As a silent malicious green slime has descended upon us, it would give reason and logic for his latest remarks against another country's legally elected president that have nothing to do with the biblical written words of Christ, but coincidentally have everything to do with the current Neo-Con War Drum beat against Venezuela.
But it seems when you're famous, wealthy and Republican mouthpieces, you can get away with a whole
lot.
But then, I may just be jealous. After all, I don't have a new 2005 Silver-leather -interior Hummer in my driveway. But as much as I might want to laugh at paying $70.00 each time I visit the pumps, I seriously wonder how I would sleep at night, knowing I just whored myself out, while defending my actions that judgment really lies on those who actually do the evil deeds. Judas would understand, I'm sure.
I did not mean to come down so hard on the Christian Right initially, but with all the
cannon fodder out there it's hard to stop.
Little things like the former huge powerbase of the Christian Coalition, with Pat making his run, Jerry forming his Moral Majority, and Dobson's extremely profitable Focus on the Family.
These vehicles raised immense amounts of money, created huge power bases, just by being there.
As Professor Pan said: The current (powers that be) did not become that way by being stupid. They are very cunning and extremely dangerous.
They recognized an opportunity when it existed. By allying the huge powerbase that was the Christian Group, being anyone that believed in a Christian God (virtually most of America), especially the Fundamentalist(virtually the ones with the biggest mouths), they have succeeded in obtaining an ever flowing river of milk and honey and prayers-as long as they can keep the Christians convinced they are worthy of being prayed for.
Having seduced the Elites of God's chosen, by taking most money out of public dispensaries and public agencies and giving it to churches and 'faith based programs', by talking a big talk about the ' sanctity of life', having 'god' back in classrooms , they have created a very ingenious smokescreen to have us not see the true effects and horrors of modern day
imperialism.

"Because of EHM projects, Ecuador is awash in foreign debt and must devote an inordinate share of its national budget to paying this off, instead of using its capital to help the millions of its citizens officially classified as dangerously impoverished. The only way Ecuador can buy down its foreign obligations is by selling its rain forests to the oil companies. Indeed, one of the reasons the EHMs set their sights on Ecuador in the first place was because the sea of oil beneath its Amazon region is believed to rival the oil fields of the Middle East. The global empire demands its pound of flesh in the form of oil concessions.
These demands became especially urgent after September 11, 2001, when Washington feared that Middle Eastern supplies might cease. On top of that, Venezuela, our third-largest oil supplier, had recently elected a populist president, Hugo Chávez, who took a strong stand against what he referred to as U.S. imperialism; he threatened to cut off oil sales to the United States. The EHMs had failed in Iraq and Venezuela, but we had succeeded in Ecuador; now we would milk it for all it is worth..."-excerp Confessions of an economic hit man, John Perkins 2005


"America is not good because we are great, America is great because we are good." How many times have you heard this? I suppose it would matter what your definition of 'good' is.Or 'great' is. Or 'is' is.
The point being that most Americans do not have a clue as to what it takes, or how it happens that we get (very inexpensive) grapes from Chile during winter, nor care, as long as it keeps coming..
And that's my point. If we are truly an Empire, as Rome was, then call it an Empire. If the Fundamentalists of America want Christianity in schools and government then we have a theocracy. Then say you want a theocracy ,you assholes.
We ceased being a republic when the supreme court-of one of the richest countries on earth- caste the famous verdict on a presidential election, without consulting me.
