We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Kerry says he "re-read the New Testament the other day" and guess what? The New Testament is a Democrat. I can't believe this jerk. Nobody on earth "re-read the New Testament the other day." Story here.
Not fun being an MD in Iraq. The problem isn't lawyers - it's armed relatives. Yes, it's from Al Jazeera, but it rings true. They have to throw in some true stuff once in a while.
Oregon goes Canadian. Maoism arrives at the University of Oregon, and the faculty doesn't like it. But ain't it always this way - they want to do what they think is best for YOU, but hate it when it applies to THEM. Cuz they're virtuous - right? And you are evil, right?
"I went back and reread the New Testament the other day, and I've got news for you. Nowhere in the three-year ministry of Jesus Christ is there any suggestion at all that you ought to take from the poor and give to the rich and leave children at risk."
#1 - I'm pretty sure he's right about Jesus not having made that suggestion.
#2 - So... if Kerry's statement caused you to believe that Jesus is a democrat... then taking from the poor and giving the money to the rich while leaving children at risk is a republican thing?
#3 - It's possible to reread the New Testament "the other day", especially those parts directly pertaining to the time Jesus spent teaching.
a) Kerry always seemed like he was a fast reader to me.
b) He didn't say he read it word for word... perhaps he skimmed over parts he knew by heart.
c) If he said he read the whole bible... then I'd be a little skeptical too.
