Here’s what Corporate America wants… of course, it doesn’t want government bureaucracy… it would cut into their bureaucracy and it’s profits! You can believe in JAY-ZUSS as long as you bow down in front of the Almighty Dollar… let us prey!
Read this, if you please:
I shall not be coy in expressing my distaste for what so-called “conservatives” and so-called “teabaggers” did in trying to discredit a federal bureaucrat. Now, all the Sturm und Drang appears a setup… no decent person does that. As Solzhenitsyn put it, “Survive at almost any cost”. The Bushies (and their “teabagger” successors) lied to you from the first. The Great Recession started in late 2007, but Bush didn’t tell you… it might have hurt McCain/Palin. That’s why Sarah Palin is evil… she knew the truth in 2008, but she refused to tell it to you straight up because it would have hurt her political ambitions. In any case, she is nothing but a TV presenter who knows how to do two things:
- How to look believable on camera
- How to read from a Teleprompter and make it look natural
“If we enact single-payer healthcare, a government bureaucrat is going to make decisions about your life”. The soggy teabaggers say that… let me tell you, bureaucrats are making such decisions right now… HMO bureaucrats… they refuse people care to preserve their firm’s “bottom lines”. A friend told me about how an HMO refused to allow compensation for heart surgery for a relative… the person involved had two holes in their heart! The bastard at the HMO said, “We won’t pay unless they have a stroke”. Reflect well on this… these creepozoids are pouring millions into the teabagger movement to preserve their profits. It’s not a “grassroots” movement. In any case, a country of 300 million is not run like a small New England town of less than 10,000 residents… and it can’t be. There shall be bureaucracy… it shall be government bureaucracy… or it shall be corporate bureaucracy… but bureaucracy we shall have, for the USA can’t be run without it. Make no mistake on it, corporate bureaucracy is far worse… everything is sacrificed for the “bottom line”. After all, the Second VP of Marketing has to keep their six-figure job and go to that “sensitivity seminar” in Palm Beach in December…
Of all industrialised countries, the USA is the only one with such a shabby safety net. If you are single, or a couple with no children, the government gives you very little indeed. I know… when I lost my job (downsizing)… ultimately, I lost everything that I had worked for. I am only now getting my life somewhat back in order. Why do the teabaggers want to rip up what’s left of the safety net? It’s to preserve tax cuts for the richest 1 percent of Americans. Look at how they played games with unemployment funding, but gave the Pentagon a blank cheque without demur. I call such people liars… I call them hypocrites. They have NOT kept America “safe”… they did run secret prisons in the Baltic states, the Ukraine, and the Balkans… they did bankroll Georgia’s Grad bombardment of sleeping civilians in ’08… they did lie down with every neo-Nazi politician in Eastern Europe that they could find (it was only sufficient for the SS-lovers to prove their “anti-Russian” credentials).
In short, I see no difference between “conservatives”, “neocons”, “teabaggers”, “progressives”, and “liberals”… they are all what a modern Russian would define as Godless Liberals. There are no actual Conservative Legitimatists in the USA… “conservatives” are Liberals who believe in Big Business… “liberals” are Liberals who believe in Big Government. In any case, Radical Protestants AKA “Evangelicals” are not Conservatives… and I doubt that they have any resemblance to Classical Christianity at all. Christian worship doesn’t consist of a few vapid hymns and a 45-minute lecture. That’s a mockery of Christian liturgy. The American Sectarian Mindset has seeped into the Church, for we are not careful in screening converts from such groups, and many are ordained after derisively short periods as Orthodox. You wish an example? Look at Paffhausen… he ignored a UOC MP Bishop in NYC so that he could kiss up to Mormons in DC… actions DO speak louder than words.
Orthodox people should stay out of the “conservative” or “teabag” movements… they are nothing but materialism (often) with a “religious” veneer (there’s no similarity between the Lord Christ and JAY-ZUSS, thank you very much). As Patriarch Kirill said, “The consumer psychology and the lust of the flesh are not viable… they destroy the spiritual dimension of life, and turn human beings into animals”. We must oppose all Godless Liberals… both those who call themselves “liberals” and those who call themselves “conservatives”… both are nothing but Bolsheviki in nicer vesture.
There are things that one does not do… the Sherrod affair points up that the “conservatives” and the “teabaggers” do NOT have the moral high ground. Lord Acton was right… but do remember this… it’s not only power that corrupts… but also the “love of power”… an Orthodox elder would call it “prelest”… it’s something to think about.
