“Self-Professed Christians”: First Quote Jesus; Then Punish The Poor

Originally posted on mykeystrokes.com:

Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker.” — Proverbs 14:31

It’s not my habit to start a column with a quotation from the Bible, but this one’s loaded with self-professed Christians, so why not?

In the mid-1990s, during my time as a metro reporter and feature writer for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, I started writing stories about people who lived in poverty.

I learned early to avoid certain words and descriptions that ignited the ire of certain readers who would rather shame fellow Americans for their dire circumstances than consider why so many of them live in poverty. And often just blocks away from our front doors.

As a columnist, I still sometimes fall back on those rules:

Unless crucial to the story, don’t refer to the flat-screen television in the living room or the car in the driveway, no matter how many miles are on it. A…

The moral crisis of our time and the coming economic disaster of our current bubble economy

Originally posted on John Hively's Blog: News and Analysis of the War Against the Middle Class:

The United States is in the midst of an economic expansion, which happens to be the most sluggish in US history. Demand growth is at all time lows, or so it seems, yet the stock market bubble continues to expand outward, because massives amount of income and wealth are being legislatively redistributed from the 99 to the 1 percent at a rate never before seen in US history.

1 percent of the US population now receives 99 percent of all income growth, and 95 percent of all income growth since 2009. The rich received 8 percent of all income growth in 1980, 21 percent in 2008, and now 37 percent. What have they purchased with their thefts?

More corruption of government and the moral and economic crisis we have today.

Being Middle Class In America – GREED! – ‘GREED IS GOOD…BECAUSE WE REFUSE TO REGARD IT ANY OTHER WAY’

wealth inequality12

“During his remarks on poverty at Georgetown University on Tuesday, President Obama noted the discrepancy in pay between two very different sets of workers…. 25 men — yes, they were all men — made about $464 million apiece, just a bit more than the teachers’ $53,000″.

‘As absurd as the discrepancy in these numbers is, the President was correct. The top-earning 25 hedge fund managers in this country make significant more ($11.6 billion) than all of the approximately 158,000 kindergarten teachers ($8.5 billion) in the U.S’.

‘So let’s be certain I have this straight':

’25 hedge fund managers’,

‘Who actually create nothing of tangible value (unless you consider creating paper wealth to be valuable)’

‘Make significantly more money than EVERY’.

‘SINGLE’.

‘Kindergarten teacher’.

‘In the country’.

‘All 158,000…who actually do create something of value':

  • ‘Our future’.

The Republican War On Women – Because….You Know…..Abortions – ‘Pro-Life’ Texas Legislature Bans Planned Parenthood from Cancer Screening Program’

war on women27

On Wednesday, a House-Senate conference committee approved a budget that would remove Planned Parenthood from the state’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Services program, even though the state ranks among the worst states for cervical cancer incidence and fatalities’.

  • ‘What we’re saying is, more women are diagnosed with and die of cervical cancer in Texas than in most other states’.

Why???????

‘State Senator Jane Nelson who admits the refusal of funds in politically motivated’.

‘As she has said’,

“There are many members that feel very strongly that the facilities that receive funding should not be facilities for performing abortions, so the answer is, don’t perform abortions and you get the money.”
