    [An exquisitely done reflection on the state of American life today.]

    "A Psalm of Obama

    (To be sung by children, K-12, every morning of their seven-day school week.)*


    The State is my shepherd,

    I shall not want.

    It makes me lie down in federally owned pastures.

    It leads me beside quiet waters in banned fishing areas.

    It restores my soul through its control.

    It guides me in the path of dependency for its namesake.

    Even though our nation plunges into the valley of the shadow of debt,

    I will fear no evil,

    For Barack will be with me.

    The Affordable Care Act and food stamps,

    They comfort me.

    You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me in the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies.

    You anoint my head with hemp oil;

    My government regulated 16-ounce cup overflows.

    Surely mediocrity and an entitlement mentality will follow me

    All the days of my life,

    And I will dwell in a low-rent HUD home forever and ever.

    Amen. "

    LOL, whoever wrote that garbage must worship republicans every bit as much as they think liberals worship democrats, it's rare to encounter such glaring projection.

    I can understand your objection. Still, there is little doubt that the "glaring projection" as you put it is spot on.

    No it isn't, this attack on the welfare state and environmental regulation is written from the viewpoint of someone who finds them entirely unnecessary, an extreme ideological position, the actual position of most liberals is that these things are necessary evils but would prefer a society where anyone who wants to work can work and make a decent living making welfare programs largely unnecessary. Until we can build a more equitable and rewarding society it is better that homeless people not starve in our streets or die from lack of medical care.

    Spare your regurgitated bleeding heart dogma. Not even Obama would go along with that. The concept that people are entitled to a middle class standard of living is not even entertained even here in Europe. The starving or dying from lack of medical care rings thoroughly hollow.

    Republican's NEW Religion:

    Feed the poor and they will breed.

    Poor people are like animals.

    Cut school lunches, let NOT the little children eat, but yay, may they starve. Verily, Republican concern is to giddith them born, not care for them after birth.

    Women no not how to control their bodies nor their lust. They must be watched over by Republicans and their bodies "controlled".

    Am I getting it right?

    Is using a bible verse and changing it to fit a political view the same as...taking the Lords name in vain?
