I thank God everyday for athiests

All the athiests who work to ease the sufferring of others.

Who fight for social justice.

Who believe, like Christ that the poor are oppressed by a capitalist system in which the poor are units of production and not human beings worthy of the same dignity as anyone else.

God bless you - not a dig but a recognition of the work we must do together, motivations aside.

Lets get to work. Lets stop fighting.

what is more important

What we believe or say we believe, or what we do.? Of course I am referring to faith vs works in the Christian tradition but what do non believers and or believers of other faiths think?

war crimes revisited

One of the things that has disappointed me with Pres. Obama has been the lack of accountability on wall street - and I mean obvious maNBCjor felonies they declined to prosecute. As for the obvious war crimes I sort of knew they would never prosecute for many reasons, most I disagreed with but understood the realpolitik behind it.

Ifbthese criminals are now so emboldened to call for investigations of this administration. Said and ministration should be preapred to be forthright and also investigate the hell out of what was to be left in the past regarding the last admin.

Did anyone see the initial RT coverage of the Bundy Ranch crazy?

Oh, boy.

Imagine the wall to wall coverage the kidnapping of 200 white school girls would generate.

It is really stunning of how little concern it is when something horrific befalls a bunch of non-whites.

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams arrested in 1972 IRA killing

Northern Ireland police Wednesday arrested Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams for questioning about the notorious 1972 abduction and murder of a widow wrongly suspected of informing against the Irish Republican Army........

Researchers taped confessional interviews with former loyalist and republican paramilitaries, and two IRA operativesimplicated Adams in the McConville's abduction and slaying.The tapes weren't supposed to remain private until their deaths, but Northern Ireland officials persuaded U.S. courts to release some material because of the serious crimes discussed.

'black boy', 'those people' - cliven bundy, the gift that keeps on giving

“If I say 'Negro' or 'black boy' or 'slave,' if those people cannot take those kind of words and not be (offended), then Martin Luther King hasn't got his job done yet," he added. "We need to get over this prejudice stuff."

it must change or die

There are conservative models of mainstream american philosophy I could imagine being electorally viable in the increasingly pluralistic and multicultural and ethnic country America is rapidly becoming. I don't see the GOP embracing them anytime soon. The white supremacy strain is like electoral crack cocaine bin that they have to keep hitting that pipe more and more to get an ever diminishing result but putting it down right now is out of the question. Like any addict they have to hit rock bottom before they change.
