I remember shortly after 911 how the American people were so united and going back to church and putting some reality back in their lives. Fast forward to now and its back to normal. Country divided and most just want to fill their lives with material goods. God have mercy.
Yes, we have a short attention span. Probably due to MTV.
The depiction could have easily been of GWB with a bomb in his right hand and a carrot in his left(He has a cowboy hat, but it doesn't fit). How offended would you be? Both depictions would fairly, accurately, but in a funny way, represent current fundamentalist American right wing ideology.
I hope that when the right wing Christian fundamentalists realize that they've been totally duped by the present administration about their obsession with war (so long as there is a profit) and return to their core beliefs as taught by Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, they set about to further advance additional Christian beliefs such as charity, society, justice and humility. There are others, but these are the most basic.
I am only offended by the words that accompany the depiction. I am a Democrat, yet I was not offended by the depiction. I am a leftist, a liberal, a progressive and I am considered an intellectual in many circles (I would argue that point) and I still was not offended by the cartoon. I was certainly, as most of us were, offended by the attacks of 9-11-2001. So, what is the author trying to say?
Coercive income redistribution by force is not charity.
WTF are you talking about? Are you being forced about something?
We all know your lefty version of charity is forced income redistribution at the point of a gun.
I've NEVER pointed a gun at you or any other AMERICAN, rtwngAvngr. And, I certainly don't agree with forced income redistribution such as I see with the windfalls of Halliburton, Harken Energy, Enron, WordCom, all the American automakers that have survived the political throat cutting of the past, or any of the governmental allowed or legislated profitteering that I've been a witness to for the last 55 years.
You have me confused with someone else.
No. You're still yourself. The communist. Would you like to outlaw the practice of the government hiring private contractors? What do you want exactly?
I'm not a communist. I'm an American, a veteran and a citizen with all the scars and ideological improvements and understandings to justify it. What are you? Just an internet junkie with no time or thoughts to promote truth, justice and the American way?
I have no objection to private contractors. I do have objection to war profitteering. Don't you? After all, isn't WAR a weakness and a religious abomination?
That's what I want. Truth, Justice and the American Way.
