Buying an Election - Affecting Us All

Spending on this year's election is already almost double than that of the 2008 election and projected to be 30 times more than 2008 by November 6th. All thanks to the Citizen's United ruling by the supreme court which gave corporations the ability to spend, and donate unlimited funds (and anonymously). So not only will this be unprecedented spending, but we won't know where the money is coming from. A double whammy. Regardless if you're Republican or Democrat, this effects us both in a very bad way.

Liberals are Anti- God?!

So I read a recent blurb by a right wing Christian nut that basically said Liberals are Anti God.

Not true. The Bible doesn't support multi-national capitalist companies. Rather it says greed is a sin (1 Corinthians 6:10). The Bible doesn't support the notion that we all deserve to have big cars, big houses, and even bigger churches in which to worship. In fact, gluttony is a sin (Proverbs 28:7). The Bible doesn't even say we should oppose taxes. Christ told his followers to pay them (Mark 12:17).

Give former Labor Secretary Robert Reich 2 minutes, 15 seconds and he will explain.

So there you have it, all spelled out below:
