What has changed in 100 years .......... Maybe the names

A Muckraker cartoon from about 1905-6

Don't we still have a bought Senate or are they so rich themselves that they are too busy counting their money to do their jobs??

Eve of Destruction ......... song from 1965

Have been hearing the song alot on talk radio lately.
Does the song still hold true today, has much changed??

The eastern world, it is exploding
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill, but not for votin'
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

But you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say
Can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today?
If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' away
There'll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
[Take a look around ya boy, it's bound to scare ya boy]

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Yeah, my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators don't pass legislation
And marches alone can't bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin'
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for 4 days in space
But when you return, it's the same old place
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace
And, tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
You don't believe
We're on the eve
Of destruction
Mm, no no, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

This Question will Assume That There is a God

Why did your god create the universe??

I had a Dream

Took a nap and had a dream.

A politician tells a lie and their tongue falls off.
A politician takes a bribe and their hands fall off.
A politician works to take a woman's reproductive rights away
and their reproductive parts either fall off or stops functioning.
A politician comes out with a stupid bill or votes for one and their brain turns to jello.
A wealthy person tries to buy an election or a politician and they find themselves living under a cardboard box.

It was a pleasant dream, it was a better world. One has to have hope and dreams.

More Guns is the Only Answer ...........

How come no one or very few are asking why this country needs so many guns or guns in schools??

Why did we get to this point??

How many Gods are there??

Pope Benedict: Church Must Stand Against "Intolerant Agnosticism"

Reuters | Posted: 01/06/2013 7:13 am EST
By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Pope Benedict said on Sunday that Roman Catholic leaders must have the courage to stand up to attacks by "intolerant agnosticism" prevalent in many countries.

The pope and the Church have come under increased attack because of their opposition to homosexual marriage and women priests. The pope has repeatedly denounced what he says are attempts to push religion out of public debate.


"Anyone who lives and proclaims the faith of the Church is on many points out of step with the prevalent way of thinking," he said. "The approval of the prevailing wisdom, however, is not the criterion to which we submit."


"Today's regnant agnosticism has its own dogmas and is extremely intolerant regarding anything that would question it and the criteria it employs," the pope said.
