In God We Trust?

7 Jan

A three-year long exercise in futility mercifully came to an end yesterday, as Chuck Grassley’s investigation into misuse of funds by televangelist scam artists concluded the thieves did nothing illegal. Not even Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Paula White, or Eddie Long – the four that decided cooperation with the same government that gives them tax-exempt status was not an option.

The entire Christian machine backed the criminals, for fear they too might have to one day face judgement for their actions. It’s all about Freedom of Religion. The lack of a “wall of separation” between church and state. In other words, as long as you throw the name of God into the mix, you can get away with whatever the hell you want. The Almighty trumps the I.R.S. every time. (Well, except the time Jimmy Carter instructed the I.R. S. to deny tax-exempt status to any private school that refused to end discriminatory policies. Thus forcing the birth of the Moral Majority, and we all know how that turned out.)

After all, this is a Christian Nation. And the very same people who will fight to the death to turn America into a theocracy are the very same people who would declare war against the government if our chosen faith were that of Islam…

Thank you, Patrick!

“Is this the sort of thing that George Washington or our founders would be proud of?” asked Missouri Congressman Todd Akin (R).

“We’re dissing the troops, that’s what we’re doing. We’re disrespecting them.” said California Congressman Howard McKeon (R).

Well, the House passed Pennsylvania Congressman Patrick Murphy’s amendment which would end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, presumably this December. Final vote: 234-194.

Murphy, who fought in Bosnia and Iraq, put it this way: “When I served in Baghdad, my team didn’t care whether a fellow soldier was gay. We cared if they could fire their M-4 assault rifle or run a convoy down Ambush alley … do their job so that everyone in our unit could get home safely.”

The country overwhelmingly agrees with Patrick Murphy, while only a few right-wing extremist homophobes agree with Akin and McKeon.

Looks like we’re finally going to win one.

Finally…

It took long enough, but now we know the truth. Although technically the Deepwater Horizon was owned by Transocean, although technically the Deepwater Horizon was leased to British Petroleum, although technically the Deepwater Horizon’s Port of Registry was Majuro, of the Marshall Islands, although technically the Deepwater Horizon was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries, although technically the Deepwater Horizon was upgraded in 2002 with an “e-drill” maintenance and troubleshooting monitor, although technically the Deepwater Horizon’ s casing cementing procedure was done by Halliburton contractors, there is only one individual responsible for the worst man-made disaster in history.

That individual is President Barack Obama.

We have the evidence on tape. During today’s news conference, the President admitted in unequivocal terms that he alone was to blame. If ever there were an impeachable offense, this is it. Lest we forget, eleven people died the day the rig went up in flames.

Why is this man not in prison?

We’re at war.

He served in Bosnia and Iraq. He was awarded the Bronze Star for Service. Now, Congressman Patrick Murphy has turned against his fellow soldiers. That, according to such outstanding conservative groups like the Family Research Council. By ramming the Murphy Amendment, which would end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, through Congress, Murphy is putting our nation’s heroes at risk. Because unless his amendment is withdrawn, Republicans will have no choice but to oppose the Defense Authorization Bill.

What do you make of this?

The truth about us.

The American people support the white Anglo-Saxon majority which founded our nation and continues to lead us forward. We oppose homosexuals, blacks and Latinos. They have no place in our Christian nation. We frown upon expanding gun rights, better healthcare, tax cuts for the middle class, and job increases. Most of all, we despise hope.

We hold these truths to be self-evident – the polls have shown us the light.

Our very democracy is threatened by the possibility that our military personnel may have to bunk with gays. The vast majority of Americans support the Arizona law, in which any fellow American with brown skin can and must be arrested if they don’t have proof of citizenship on their person at all times. Property rights should supercede the civil rights of blacks. The only reason Barack Obama is President is because every black person in the country voted for him, even though he’s a Muslim, and not even an American. Our children will be finally be taught the truth about the faith our founding fathers built this nation upon, thanks to the brave members of the Texas School Board.

President Obama has thrice given gun owners more freedoms – who is he to tell us what we can and cannot do? Once republicans explained the horrors of Obamacare no one in their right mind could support it. The stimulus bill, Obama’s response to Bush’s bank bailouts, was wildly unpopular. Who the hell wants tax cuts? What gives the President the right to force us to work?

Finally, the ultimate rejection of Obama’s fascist, socialist, Nazi agenda came from none other than Sarah Palin. “How’s that hopey-changey thing workin’ out for ya?’, has stirred the nation.

It is our duty as straight, white, Christians to take back our country.

God bless the United States of America!
