Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Nobo, correct on NO conscience or spirituality in government. BUT, there are a whole lot of Religion based ideas being put forth as American, and a great many are apt, but we see the religious right attempting to force feed us phony what THEY call 'christian' policies as Constitutional realities, when that notion is FAR from the truth.

Workers, fool, EARN a decent wage, if they are fortunate to have an employer who cares, they BUY PRODUCTS, which creates demand, which causes Employers to hire, to keep up with demand, the cycle continues, as if you were not aware of supply and demand, you are not tHAT stupid even though you fail to comprehend, you are so far up the arse of the Corporatists you so wanna-be.

Normenial said that it's the workers who provide jobs.

Question: Where do those workers work?

Norm, I still hope for a Constitutional Republic or at least something a lot closer to one than what we are experiencing now. Out of our reach? Yeah, in our lifetimes I think its out of our reach. But our grandchildren . . . . theirs? I'm willing to do everything possible short of taking up arms (been there done that) to work towards a future I'll never see. So I write to my elected officials (Dan hears from me at least twice a month.) have spirited conversation with family and friends. And try to make people aware of what is and what should and could be.

Norm, your religion is your own, your family, your community and here there are many paths and many names. It's not my place to judge or value and that was never my point. I'm sorry if you read something different.

Norm, there is no conscience or spirituality in government. There is no honoring of mother or father sister or brother. There is obedience to the state or violence of enforcement of law.

Amos, you are right 100% I will answer for my sins (as will we all) At 17 I turned my back on the peace of religion and adopted the Government into my religion and swore my oath to the God in whom I still believe and by my actions hundreds died, maybe thousands. Why? A family tradition going back over 300 years (that I can account for – probably more.) A tradition that was likely in obedience to a church. Nothing is linear Amos. Life is a tangle of choices and results. That's the freedom. The freedom to choose, to rebel or obey or make a combination of both. And that is the exact freedom that we may lose if Government diminishes religion and all the tradition, fellowship, identity, culture, and community it brings to the table, then inserts itself in the vacuum.

Interpret 'the Creator' any way you wish, just do not propose to tell any of us there is only ONE way to express ones spirit.

My spirituality includes a healthy respect for the Earth. Many supposedly religious sects are merely exploitive of our planet, with little or no regard for those who follow, our children. The wag we see often in this forum likes to belittle other faiths, and is constantly expressing hatred, which is decidedly NON-Christian and an affront to the Creator.

Nobo, it does not take 'religion' to further humanity, charity and freedom, it only takes a conscience and a spirituality that allows inclusion. And THAT includes those of other spiritual connections, ALL humans in fact.

Make excuses all you want, for the Vultures masquerading as 'job creators'. The sad fact remains, the Nation is in trouble, and the FEW are amassing money with little regard to the TRUE job creators, a workforce with well paying jobs, who purchase, yes, even the clown shoes YOU sell. While America is a Republic, fool, we are always touting 'Democracy', and we are always referred to as a democracy. The 'lunacy' is the Tea Party, and you are one of the loons, while only certain Constitutional ideals appeal to you, forget certain pesky Amendments, like the FIRST, which you so gleefully misinterpret.

Amos, I was religious as a child. I have an unshakeable faith in my creator. But as a trained anthropologist I can understand the social and cultural need for religion not as a conduit to God but as a building block and foundation of community, culture, and freedom. Religion is a place where common rules and customs of community are learned and put into practice. Other than the state (which is violence – all government is based on force and violence to compel complacency to law) Where else is there to learn charity, freedom, and most importantly tradition to act as the binding sinew of a people to form an identification as a people?

Amos, Dotty(Walker raccoon hound) is recent to my household as is Peanut (Min Dachshund/Min Terrier) But I've had Sable (Doberman/Lab) since her birth and Rasta (Lab) has been with us 9 years. Trooper and Max (Doberman) were lost last Jan 29 and I still miss them. I presume they were found and kept or that they fell through the ice and are dead. Dotty and Peanut are rescues and fill the loss in our hearts. I'm not sure what you were trying to say in your post but I will assure you this. I love and care for my pets like family members. After Max ran away and got hit by a care and shattered his hip my wife and I put up 900 feet of fence three or is it four years ago RS was the only one on this forum that offered to help – we didn't need it but I remember his genuine kindness all the same.

This is not a Democracy, it's a Republic. And where's the "lunacy" in abiding by the Constitution and spending no more than you take in? Sounds like basic common sense to me.

The left's "solutions" are getting whackier and whackier. We should take down big businesses...small ones too. That'll force them to produce more jobs. If not who cares, the Government can have a monopoly on jobs, since the private sector will have been dismantled by idiots like Normutilate, aka, commies.

Meanwhile, Obama is on teevee all indignant about the Middle East turmoil and the tragic loss of life, even as the next drone strike is being planned. Condemning violence while perpetrating violence is anti-humanity, and only serves to recruit future terrorists among those whose friends and families have been droned to death. This is American foreign policy, and ALL politicians are to blame for this dire situation. It's the MONEY, and they ALL take it, both 'commies' and 'fascists'.

I fear a 'Constitutional Republic' is out of reach. The 'Supreme' Court will assure that money remains THE qualifier that insures the status quo. While some fools rail against 'commies', there are those in this government that perpetuate the Plutocracy that is government by the wealthy, the 'job creators' who only create money from money rather than jobs for workers, and they will hold power until Americans wake up and rise up against them. We are far too distracted with trivial nattering on social issues and weird fascination with celebrities. Government by the FEW, that is an Oligarchy which is FAR removed from Democracy. Combine the two and we have a Plutarchy running the country. OF the wealthy few, BY the wealthy few, and FOR the wealthy few. Running around screaming of 'commies' and 'death panels' and the curious birther movement in the supposed grass roots Tea Party that cannot call these nuts out on their lunacy are all part of the weapons of mass distraction.
