Religion and Politics

If you've read any of my previous posts, you know that I am an ardent believer that organized religion is having a very negative effect on our nation. Following are some images that support my belief. Not - you can view any of the images in a larger format by clicking on the one you wish to enlarge.

Fair and Balanced Reporting

You can tell that her discourse is rational
from her facial features.

Another Republican expert.

Once in a while there's something funny
published about Democrats.

Republicans don't even get the humor of them
talking out of both sides of their mouths.

Late Night Political Humor

“Sunday was the big White House Easter egg hunt. Of course, the Catholic priests didn’t have time to hide eggs, they were too busy hiding each other.” – Jay Leno

“As you know, the Roman Catholic Church continues to be rocked by this sex abuse crisis. In fact, they’re thinking of changing their name to the Roman Polanski Catholic Church.” – Jay Leno

“You know what happened in Las Vegas today? Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, was speaking at the alcohol convention in Las Vegas, Nev. Because, I mean, let’s face it, nothing says family values like gambling and liquor.” – David Letterman

“John McCain told Newsweek that he doesn’t really consider himself a ‘maverick.’ What kind of man would call himself a maverick for years and then suddenly say he doesn’t think of himself as a maverick? I’ll tell you what kind — a maverick.” – Jimmy Kimmel

“President Obama has come out with a new policy for using nuclear weapons. In a related story, Joe Biden said he would try not to drop the F-bomb so often.” – Jay Leno

“The Labor Department reported that the economy added 162,000 jobs last month, all of them bodyguards for Tiger Woods.” – Jay Leno

“The iPad has only been out for a few days and it has revolutionized the publishing industry. You can download books, you can read them and store them, and for religious fundamentalists, there’s a new app that lets you burn them.” – Jimmy Kimmel

Hypocrite Bankers

From Gawker...

JP Morgan's mortgage chief David Lowman yesterday told Rep. Barney Frank that he wanted people who were concerned about home foreclosures to "come to me." He had no idea he would be chased off Capitol Hill by an angry mob.

From Reuters:

Minutes later, around 50 borrowers burst from the audience and presented Lowman with a 6-page document alleging his bank reneged on a pledge to help struggling homeowners.

The activist who organized the protest said Lowman did not want to talk and left the hearing.

"He ran. He ran like a dog with its tail between his legs," said Bruce Marks of the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), which helps homeowners avoid foreclosure. "He was scared to death because he doesn't really want to talk to homeowners."

A spokesman for JP Morgan Chase declined to comment on his boss being bitched out.

Hey, Teabaggers....

I found the following posted on Down With Tyranny...

Is your brother-in-law a teabagger? He might be interested in discussing this. It was originally posted on Rosie O'Donnell's blog as a response to all the anti-Obama email she gets.

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the PATRIOT Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion dollar tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans... oh hell no.
