The destructiveness of all religions!

If the human race would serve “God” from their hearts and not religion or religious books, this world would be a far better place for all of humanity!

 

I am no Atheist but I do not follow “any” religion “period!” All religions, irrespective of what that religion may be, “came from man,” and they are all flawed because “mankind” consists of fallible and imperfect human beings.

 

If people serve God and not religion you couldn’t possibly come to the conclusion that somehow God desires for you to hurt or kill or both, another human being because of what they may say about your religion.

 

Religion that derived from “man,” is one of the most destructive parts of the human race from the inception of “mankind,” and it will be until the demise of the “mortal” world!

 

 

God is not a religion!

The Republican brain drain!

By Richard Cohen, Published: September 24 Washington Post

In 1980 Ronald Reagan won the Republican nomination. He beat a future president, George H.W. Bush; two future Senate majority leaders, Howard Baker and Bob Dole; and two lesser-known congressmen. This year Mitt Romney won the GOP nomination. He beat a radio host, a disgraced former House speaker, a defeated Senate candidate, a former appointee of the Obama administration, a tongue-tied Texas governor, a prevaricating religious zealot who happens to serve in the House of Representatives and a cranky libertarian doctor. Where did all the talent go?

Until the Republican Party can answer this question, it makes no sense to continue to carp about Mitt Romney and the startlingly incompetent presidential campaign he’s running. His faults as a politician are manifest. He is robotic, unknowable (his own wife asserted at the national convention that “he made me laugh” and then failed to cite a single humorous moment), ideologically incoherent and severely out of touch with the average American. He is his party’s nominee because, like the one-eyed man in the valley of the blind, he is just the best of the worst.

Since Republicans are so focused on the individual and not on the system that produced him, they miss the real problem. The system in this case is the series of incredibly damaging primaries and caucuses that, in the crucial early stages, produce a candidate who could sweep Bavaria. The Iowa caucuses alone take the GOP so far to the right that it all but dooms the winner. Romney had to vow to stop thinking. He had to virtually declare himself anti-Hispanic (criticizing Texas for providing tuition discounts to the college-age children of illegal immigrants). While he has now moderated his approach, it is a bit late. Hispanic is not Spanish for Stupid.

Across the board, Romney pandered to the right. He did so on guns, abortion and even Iran. A GOP candidate has to oppose same-sex marriage, deny global warming and insist — against all evidence — that local control of education is the best. The only way around these positions is to skip the Iowa caucuses entirely. It is no place for a moderate. It is, really, no place for a thinking person. It’s just preposterous that Iowa — 30th in population among the states — gets to be the gatekeeper for the Republican Party and, in a sense, the entire nation.

The list of Republicans who looked at Iowa’s daunting demographics and did not run is more distinguished than those who did. At one time or another, Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain (who was forced to drop out) were front-runners. Can you think of any two people less qualified for the presidency? How about Ron Paul, another front-runner, or Mad Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry, the cement-mouthed governor who would eliminate three Cabinet offices, if only he couldremember them? How about Rick Santorum, a fun guy, who actually beat Romney in Iowa, or Jon Huntsman, a decent man with shallow political experience — and, it seemed, aptitude?

None of these candidates were remotely qualified for the highest office in the land. Arguably, Romney was the exception — and that’s the whole point. He won just by showing up. He beat a bunch of nobodies. This is how the GOP wound up with such a weak candidate, one who espouses extreme positions he does not for a moment believe.

Open the window and listen. You will hear the moans and groans of Republican officials and their trained pundits. But where were these people when their field of oddballs was being assembled? Why were they so silent when Hispanics and women were being told to shove it and the long-dead Darwin was being debated? More to the point, maybe, how come they put up with a primary and caucus system — Iowa first, New Hampshire second — that seemingly was designed by a sly Democrat? The answer is that they do not have the courage nor the intellectual integrity to stand up to the know-nothing (dominant) wing of the Republican Party. They have designed a system where, politically speaking, the lowest common denominator wins. We are all the poorer for it.

Contrast the candidates of yore with the collection that took the field this year. The Republican Party has had a brain drain so that now its highest intellectual achievement is — like an infant in the Terrible 2s— simply to say no to everything, especially taxes. To paraphrase Marx, rise up, GOP moderates. You have nothing to lose . . . but losing.

Moslems: “Allah-God” doesn’t need you to defend Him by killing others in His Name!

Posted in Allah, Arabs, Crazy, Extreme Views, God, Heaven, Hell, Mahatma Gandhi, Misguided, Moslems, Prophet Mohammed, Spirituality, Violence with tags , , on September 19, 2012 by sheriffali

To the Moslems, Mohammed was a Prophet, but after all he was just a man, another fallible human being like the rest of God’s creation!

 

The extremist Moslems should concentrate and be more dedicated to (Allah – God) and stop being so ridiculous whenever someone makes a statement about their Prophet Mohammed or their Holy book, The Koran.

 

I contend that if they would take this small step, then they couldn’t or wouldn’t be so naïve to think that somehow (Allah-God) would inspire them to kill in His name. Over the years I have watched this spate of madness every time someone draws a “cartoon” or say anything about Mohammed, for; after all, he was just a man, no more no less. To the Moslems Mohammed was a Prophet, but despite their belief, he was still just a “man,” another fallible human being.

 

I believe in God through Jesus Christ and irrespective of who may insult Christ, The Bible or God, “I know that God would never invoke evil in me to kill other people!” In the final analysis, “God doesn’t need his fallible creation to defend HIM! He has been, is and will always be; “God Almighty!”

Mitt Romney’s 47% speech suggests that Romney doesn’t know much about the culture of America!

It suggests that Romney doesn’t know much about the culture of America. Yes, the entitlement state has expanded, but America remains one of the hardest-working nations on earth.

 

 

Mitt Romney and his Republican base can try to “spin” his 47% speech as much as they can, but, indeed, Romney called almost half of America

 

Moochers!

FLIGHTS OF INSANITY

Posted in Cruelty, Darkness, Flights of Insanity, God, God's Spirit, Hades, Heartless, Heaven, Hell, Hope for better tomorrows, humility, Illness, Patience, Poverty, Progress, Recovery, Sadness, September 11, Sickness, Sin, Spirituality, Towers of Tragedy on September 10, 2012 by sheriffali

September 11, the innocent were on the flights
And with no comprehension, knew not their plights,
The ideologically demented – they were on board
Fanatically disillusioned, was their concept of God

In their anguish and anger they commandeered the planes
With impunity for themselves, but for life, nothing but disdain,
So with instructions from “Sheol” they crashed into the Towers
Shockingly unimaginable destruction came in less than an hour

With so many lives that seemed headed for the grave
New York’s rescuers, exemplified the true meaning of – ” brave”,
Rushing into the buildings not knowing what to expect
Down came the mighty Towers and the smell of death

O! Father of light and Giver of unmerited grace
In this our darkest moments, show us Thine face,
Bless our aching hearts with a preamble of Your plan
For we trust in Your goodness, when you raise Your “right” hand

This tragedy is so immense, we just cannot comprehend
But this evil, we are sure, You will bring to an “end”…

Money is to Mitt Romney what Carcasses are to Vultures!

Malleable Mitt Romney’s statement on Meet the Press that he opposed the raising of the debt ceiling in 2011 without a cut, cap, and balance provision, is one of Romney’s more egregious false declarations and it is simply not true.

 

In July of 2011 when most of the Republican Leaders were weighing in on the debt ceiling, Romney was in his “Mitt’s Keep Silent Protection Program.” However, when it became abundantly clear that John Boehner would have to cave due to the recalcitrant Republican Congress Boehner was managing, on August 01, 2011, Mitt Romney issued a statement praising John Boehner for working out a deal that avoided The United States of America from defaulting on its debts.

 

Romney’s deplorable and willful paroxysm is just another reason why the American Voters in November 2012, had better revisit all of Romney’s positions that changed over time – as a means to an end. His so-called plan that he calls a budget for which he states; he would increase military spending by 2-trillion dollars; authorize another 5-trillion tax cut [that would benefit Romney and those at the very top 2%] and that he would avoid any immediate changes to Medicare and Social Security while balancing the budget at the same time without any specificity, proves that Mitt Romney is a Human-Vulture on the Middle-Class, the Elderly, the Poor and America’s Children.

 

Mitt Romney’s lame excuses of “not” releasing any more tax returns other than his 2010 returns, is self evident as to this Human-Vulture capriciousness that insults the  intelligence of the American people. If the American people cannot see that any concerns for 98% of the hard-working Americans by Mitt Romney is a big fat ZERO, and capitulate to the utter nonsense by this Vulture and propel him into office, when trouble comes, they would have no one to blame but themselves.

 

At a CNN debate in June, Mitt Romney insisted that President Obama had made the economy worse. Romney said; “What this President has done has slowed the economy. He didn’t create the recession, but he made it worse and longer.”

 

Then later in the month of June at a campaign stop in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Vulture Romney contradicted himself when he said; “I didn’t say that things were worse. What I said was, the economy hasn’t turned around”

 

 

 

 

 

Romney and Ryan are Rambunctious Radicals, Removed from all Reality, and are Relying on the Repugnant Right-Wing Reprobates!

Many of the people along with George W. Bush that brought us unpaid Wars and Two Unpaid Tax Cuts; deregulations that allowed Wall Street and the Banks to commit larceny on millions of Americans causing them to lose their homes; jobs; their savings and all that they had worked for, “they are back in the Romney Camp.

 

They are advocating more Wars and another five trillion dollars worth of Tax Cuts for those that are at the very top and deregulations, that would repeat the catastrophe that was manifested between 2001-2008.

 

Thirteen of the people in the photograph are Politicians that either worked directly for George W. Bush or were strong supporters of Bush’s madness; Karl Rove – “Bush’s brain that should have been labeled Drano (drain cleaner); Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, John Bolton, Ari Fleisher, Lindsay Graham, Condoleezza Rice, John Boehner, Mitch Mc Connell, Michelle Bachman, Paul Ryan, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

 

These people have Romney’s undivided attention; waiting in the Wings for a Romney – Ryan Victory, so that they can again reap havoc on the American people.

 

The other people in the photograph are Mr. Hacker – Rupert Murdoch’s Puppeteers, impersonating Journalists on Fox’s Misnomer News Chanel.      

 

Would the Middle-Class, the Poor and women ever see who and what these people [GOP] are all about?

 

 

Michelle Obama: “You see, at the end of the day, my most important title is still ‘mom-in-chief.’ My daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world.”

So today, when the challenges we face start to seem overwhelming – or even impossible – let us never forget that doing the impossible is the history of this nation…it’s who we are as Americans…it’s how this country was built.

            

And if our parents and grandparents could toil and struggle for us…if they could raise beams of steel to the sky, send a man to the moon, and connect the world with the touch of a button…then surely we can keep on sacrificing and building for our own kids and grandkids.

 

And if so many brave men and women could wear our country’s uniform and sacrifice their lives for our most fundamental rights…then surely we can do our part as citizens of this great democracy to exercise those rights…surely, we can get to the polls and make our voices heard on Election Day.

 

If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire…if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores…if women could be dragged to jail for seeking the vote…if a generation could defeat a depression, and define greatness for all time…if a young preacher could lift us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream…and if proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.

 

Because in the end, more than anything else, that is the story of this country – the story of unwavering hope grounded in unyielding struggle.

 

That is what has made my story, and Barack’s story, and so many other American stories possible.

 

And I say all of this tonight not just as First Lady…and not just as a wife.

You see, at the end of the day, my most important title is still “mom-in-chief.”

 

My daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world.

 

 

But today, I have none of those worries from four years ago about whether Barack and I were doing what’s best for our girls.

 

 

Because today, I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all our sons and daughters…if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise…if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility – that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if you’re willing to work for it…then we must work like never before…and we must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward…my husband, our President, President Barack Obama.

                                                                                       

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

I speak only for myself and people can disagree with me, but, having studied their lives from High School through University and from a humanitarian standpoint, these people truly cared about every human being, their Country and the World, but, that came at a cost and that cost was “The price one pays for caring and for doing good.” Most of the time you are grossly misunderstood by people, not necessarily uneducated or ignorant people, but, people who live by the assumption that any good deed must carry with it, some ulterior, sinister motive!

 

We don’t define History because History is about the past; however, our “deeds” allows History to define us as to whether we were a beacon of hope and light, or, a scrooge of darkness that permeated hopelessness!

 

As for President Barack Obama, I do believe that he possesses a “Spirit” in the likes of those above, but, it is going to take time, before History would be able to articulate one way or the other.

 

However, I do believe that History would be Kind to Mr. Obama because he risked his entire Presidency to do something that previous Presidents only talked about and that something is the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as “Health Care Reform.” In addition, he used his initial goodwill at the inception of his Presidency to “bail out our financial Institutions including the Auto Industry that kept us from falling into the abyss.”

 

Some Americans have very short or convenient memory and that is; “former President George W. Bush handed to President Obama; “an almost bankrupt country; two wars and two tax cuts which were unpaid for; unfunded programs and a collapsed Housing Market caused by deregulations for which Wall Street and most of the Banking Institutions used to scheme the American people out of their; Homes; Jobs; Saving and everything they had worked for all of their lives.

But, for Mitt Romney, The Republican Party and their followers, all of these disasters are somehow President Obama’s fault.   

 

The Narcissistic Poisonous Group of America; inspired by Republicans for taking our country back to 1964 and before!

Clint Eastwood

 Is now a proud member of the

“Narcissistic Poisonous Deluge Group”

Of America!

 

For all the wrongs that George W. Bush did in 8 years that literally turned America upside down and almost bankrupted us, people like Clint Eastwood and most in the Republican Party just hop backwards 32 years to Jimmy Carter and then fast forward to President Obama, [sort of like Bush never existed] and they blame Obama for all that ails us. Mr. Eastwood went as far as blaming Obama for either starting the Afghanistan War or for not ending it!

 

Clint Eastwood has been and will always be my movie hero, but, it is truly sad to see how he fell from grace being Mitt Romney and the Republicans Puppeteer.

 

No President in the History of America has been treated so disrespectfully like President Obama has, and continues to be. However, Eastwood’s utterances though very offensive, it is pale in comparison to what others have said and continue to say.

 

The statement “We have to take our country back,” it is not just some political misnomer, for it carries with it deep and indelible memories that dates back to 1964 and before.

 

All of these phantasmagoric rationales and internecine fabrications that the Republicans and their surrogates use to discredit Obama, is a “black stain” against us in the eyes of the world, simply for one simple fact; “we are always advocating to others about freedom of speech; tolerance; democracy; equal rights and a litany of noble things, but, the problem is that; “people often doubt what you say but they always believe what you do!”

 

Mr. Eastwood has now had the grand privilege of becoming a member of the “Narcissistic Poisonous Deluge Group of America.”

 

Present members;

 

New Gingrich; Sarah Palin; Michelle Bachman; Mitch McConnell; Condoleezza Rice; Mitt Romney; Paul Ryan; Donald Trump; Rupert Murdoch’s Puppeteers; Bill O’Rilly; Shawn Hannity; Britt Hume; Greta Van Susteren and so many others that it would literally take thousands of pages to write out of the names.

 

My advice to these people are; “there is a God and He is often accused of being slow, but be sure and know, He is never late!”
