Great post!

Let's Talk Gospel

Jesus makes an astonishing statement when He declares: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.  But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.  All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.  For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.  And this is the will of him who sent me that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.  For my Father’s will; is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day” (John 6:35-40).

Rand Paul Might Call my 2,200th Post “Gayer” :)

Mario Piperni dot Com has posted a new item, ‘Idiot Quote of the Day: Obama the
“Gayer”‘

Rand Paul: Call me cynical, but I didn’t think his [Obama’s] views on
marriage could get any gayer. We won’t call Rand cynical. Ignorant, bigoted
asshole is more fitting. An adult using the word “gayer”…really? Urban
Dictionary. as gay is no longer an insult, add gayer to take it back to its old,
childish meaning. Republicans are getting uglier, dumber […]

Can you relate? Mitt Romney has so much money that he’s lost the common touch!

Woody —
On the campaign trail, Mitt Romneypoints to his private sector experience as his chief qualification to be president.So we took a look at that experience, and put together a new site, RomneyEconomics.com, on it. Take a look for yourself here. Let me sum up how Romney economics works:Romney and his partners bought companies across the United States, often loading them up with debt in the process.Too often, they slashed pensions, benefits, and jobs, while paying themselves and their shareholders straight from the debt they’d accumulated.Because of that debt, several of these businesses went bankrupt, leaving workers without jobs, without pensions, and without health care — all while Romney and his partners walked away with millions.

Everyone understands that businesses rise and fall — and sometimes fail — and no one is challenging Romney’s right to run his business as he saw fit or questioning private equity as a whole.

But when a handful of people make a fortune by putting thousands out of work and bankrupting once-healthy businesses, it’s legitimate to question whether those are the values America needs in a president — and whether those are the values that will create an economy built to last, with a strong, secure middle class.

On the campaign trail, Mitt Romney claims that what he and his partners did is the very best of what capitalism can be. He claims to know how to create jobs based on that experience, but even his former partners admitted their business was never about creating jobs — it was about creating wealth for investors.

Just listen to the workers of GST Steel: Mitt Romney came in, ravaged it with debt, and it ended up filing for bankruptcy. 750 workers lost their jobs and health care, and Romney’s managers left their pension fund $44 million short. The 113-year-old steel mill closed its doors, and Romney’s company made a 150% profit on their initial investment.

As RomneyEconomics.com shows, stories like that happened time and time again. That approach, where a few people do very well no matter what the cost to others, is the last thing we need in a president.

Romney’s economics would be a disaster for the middle class. We can’t afford an economy where even when the company fails, the financial wizards walk away with millions, while the workers who have invested years growing the company are left holding the bag. That won’t make our economy — or our country — stronger.

As part of the Truth Team, it’s up to us to spread the truth behind Mitt Romney’s business record. We don’t need to spin it here, the facts speak for themselves.

So take a look around the site — check out the year-by-year statistics and hear from the workers and managers affected by Mitt Romney and his business partners. Then share these stories far and wide:

There’s too much at stake in this election not to.

JP Morgan, one of the venerable institutional leaders on Wall St. and around the world, reports a loss of $2+ billion on some gambling practices that have gone awry. That could have just as easily been 20 billion or perhaps 200 billion. And guess who would be called upon to bail them out.

Yet, investment banking firms such as JPM are the ones that are grumbling about too much regulation. And they are getting a tremendous amount of support from the right-wing of the political spectrum. 2008 was not that long ago.

I think that these institutions should be split up. Separate the investment banking from the commercial banking operations. Then if an investment banking firm continues to make bad decisions only the company and its customers will have to pay the price.

Keep coming back!!

This clip from last year reminds one of Mitt Romney’s lack of support for his gay foreign affairs spokesman.  This is what happens when a candidate has no core!

BILL CLINTON: A Sermon on Politics: ‘All of Us See Through the Glass Darkly’


Ex-President Clinton, VP Joe Biden and President Obama.

‘All of Us See Through the Glass Darkly’

Bill Clinton explores politics & religious values in a sermon at Riverside Church before the start of the Republican convention

BY: Bill Clinton

Politics and political involvement dictated by faith is not the exclusive province of the right wing.

Religious values can include commitment to the common good, concern for the poor and vulnerable, the middle class families, the preservation of our God-given environment, unity over division, and for truth in campaign advertising.

We have a curious situation in American where the religious right has tried to turn all who disagree with them into two-dimensional cartoons. I read a very moving article in one of our newspapers a few days ago in which someone in the president’s hometown said all the Democrats cared about was abortion, gay marriage, and being weak on defense.

I have never met anybody that was pro abortion. That is not what pro-choice means. It just means we don’t want to criminalize the choice. I’m not ashamed to believe that gay people shouldn’t be discriminated against and I don’t believe Jesus ever had much to say about that. When Charlie Rangel fought in Korea and John Kerry fought in Vietnam they did not ask what their political party was before they let them put a uniform on.

I was raised a Southern Baptist. I used to wonder why the Republicans hated me so much. I’m kind of nice and accommodating. I even go duck hunting once a year. I think it’s because I’m supposed to be some sort of apostate – a white, southern, protestant. Why am I not a Republican, especially now that they’ve given me all those tax cuts?

The other party’s about to convene here, putting on its once-every-four-years compassionate face. They have claimed the exclusive allegiance of America’s “real Christians.”
