I, Start, remain a fool, but, hmmm, I'm learning, sooooooo slowly.
Einstein was a man. Jesus was a man. Einstein was our guru to date of macro physics. Jesus is our Einstein to date of how to Live, individually, and collectively. His teaching? "Love as I have loved... laying down my life for the least of these Our Family."
Jesus said, "Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.. the rains fell, the flood came, the wind blew... But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand." Matthew
The Wise built on Rock, NOT SAND. The Left is Sand. The Right's the Devil. Hmmm.
ROCK: Pr. Obama is rock. Much of the Dem. Senate and House Leadership is rock. Much of BarackObama.com, the roots associated with that is rock. Rock is the good, simple folk that do what is right, no matter what. THEY ARE DOERS, GIVERS, NOT TALKERS, TAKERS.
SAND: The Left. THE LEFT ARE TALKERS, and Takers.
RAIN, FLOOD, WINDS: The Right. THE RIGHT ARE TAKERS.
I just don't know what hope there is for the mass of Humanity. I've been trying to leave that in Our Father's hands (the Unseen Wisdom we can feel, but not control), but I haven't helped myself from focusing on Saving EVERYONE, NOW!
It is time to refine my focus. Screw the Left - they are worse than worthless - they waste our time, they KILL our time. I must respect the DEADLINESS of the Right. I must Focus A. on being Good, Incarnating Good, Inspiring Good; B. WORK WITH THE GOOD - COME WHAT MAY.
I stand with Pr. Obama - come what may. I stand with BarackObama.com as long as they remain Faithful. I pray that Good people and I find each other and unite as an ever growing force for Good - come what may. I will fight on, hopefully, a tiny bit wiser, smarter.
Where will this lead? How far? How fast? God, the great unseen wisdom, knows.
At noon the race in Mass. was tied. Tonight the Nazi Goon Squad is ahead 9 points.
So after 30-40 years of Rethug-Nazi-Fascist Rape and Plunder of the middle class Mass. is handing them MASSIVE power - the power to FULLY BLOCK EVERYTHING IN THE SENATE - GUARANTEED TOTAL GRIDLOCK FOR THE NEXT YEAR AND WITH VIRTUAL CERTAINTY, THE NEXT 3 YEARS. PR. OBAMA'S TERM IS OVER.
(Not to mention - I didn't in the opening paragraphs mention exploitation of the poor - yes NOT TO MENTION - Left and Right ROOTS never do more than throw token crumbs at the poor; excepting FDR.)
This is mind-boggling.
What is the reason:
1. The right is correct - the Left in this country ARE LOSERS. Whether or not their nice, interesting "Ideals" are implemented is immaterial. Win or lose those "ideals" can be TALKED about, and TALKING is all the Left cares about. Period. They can TALK if they win, they can TALK if they lose - what's the big deal? I wish to God I were kidding.
2. The Right OWNS THEIR MEDIA, the Left has none. Huh? What about FDL.com, BuzzFlash.com, DemocracyNow.org, New York Times... As I said, the Right OWNS their media - and they pay it to advance an agenda. The LEFT Media is part of the Left roots - all they value is TALKING. Advance an agenda? Huh? TALKING IS THE AGENDA. Keeping themselves alive is the agenda. Losing elections fuels that it doesn't threaten it! Perfect!
3. THE LEFT ROOTS ARE INCAPABLE OF GOVERNING - The Right is utterly correct in this. There are two modes for the Left: A. sullen acquiescence and this mode tends to last decades; and B. Brief revolt, and as we've seen, that lasts about 1 election - NOT ONE TERM, BUT ONE ELECTION. If the Left roots had risen to the level of discipline, sacrifice, commitment and courage we've seen of the Left LEADERSHIP in DC - House, Senate, White House - we'd be easily winning Mass. today.
With Climate Change Legislation, Financial Regulatory Reform, Education Reform, Healthcare Reform, Saving the US Economy all on Emergency Life Support already - you / we just signed our children's death warrant - not to mention that for billions on the planet.
ps: I don't need anyone to make me feel better. I DON'T WANT TO FEEL BETTER. I WANT AND NEED TO KEEP FACING THE TRUTH, THAT I MIGHT DO WHAT I CAN TO CHANGE IT.
