Godless Neoliberal Republican Filth Want to Cut SSD… Where are “Consistent Life” and the Rest of the Pro-Lifers? THEY’RE MIA!

01 he ain't heavy he's my brother

Remember, for the Republicans, “Greed is Good”… and “He that doesn’t work, won’t eat”… both of which are un-Christian to the max. Yet… Consistent Life still supports greedster GOP pols and continues to associate with them.

On Thursday, US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said during a floor speech that Republicans in US Congress are aiming to slash Social Security disability benefits by 19 percent next year, saying, “I wanted to discuss an issue of very serious concern to tens of millions of Americans, and that is the Republican effort to cut social security disability insurance benefits”, accusing the Republicans of trying to “lay the groundwork for a 19 percent cut in disability benefits next year”. Sanders explained that the House of Representatives adopted a rule on the first day of the new Congress that’d restrict the President’s ability to transfer funds from Social Security’s retirement account to the disability fund, noting, “Mr President, the Republicans are manufacturing a crisis where none exists”.

Sanders pointed up that since the 1960s, US presidents from both parties repeatedly employed this process to affect funds transfer into the disability account, stating, “There are some people who, sadly, are trying to divide the senior population from the disability population”. However, Republicans repeatedly expressed their concerns that Obama was unwilling to reduce or cap mandatory entitlement programs, as spending on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare may nearly double over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

On 25 January, media reports said that House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price said it wasn’t wise to continue to take from the Social Security trust fund to prop up the disability fund. In his 2016 budget, US President Barack Obama said that he’d oppose any measures that slashed Social Security benefits for future generations or reduced basic benefits for current beneficiaries. On Monday, US President Barack Obama submitted a nearly 4 trillion USD (269 trillion Roubles. 25 trillion Renminbi. 248 trillion INR. 5.02 trillion CAD. 5.14 trillion AUD. 3.54 trillion Euros. 2.63 trillion UK Pounds) fiscal budget proposal to Congress; law mandates that he present such a budget annually. In response to Obama’s proposal, Congress will send its version of a budget to the White House, which the president then has to sign-off on.

“Pro-Lifers” such as “Consistent Life” are shameless whores for Republican “conservatives”… so, I wouldn’t hold my breath as far as waiting for them to break with the GOP filth over the Republican war on the Social Safety Net. That’s nasty… allying with someone because they’re anti-abortion… but against everything else that Christ taught. That’s a clear sign of not only misplaced priorities, but also delusion on the most major scale. The Church teaches SYMPHONIA… the cooperation of Church and State, and that the state has a role, a major one, in our lives, both societal and personal. “Libertarianism” is nothing but rightwing anarchism… no Orthodox Christian can believe in it nor associate with its votaries without effectually denying their faith. That means that people like Fathausen aren’t only spoilt brats (he refused to live within the budget allotted him by the Holy Synod), they’re heretics of the most noisome sort… for they oppose Symphonia, a basic and foundational teaching of the Church. We do live in a crank world…

5 February 2015. The Anti-Vaxxers… You Needed PROOF that the GOP is a Bunch of Nutters?

01d Political Cartoons 08.11

______________________________

Read this and this. The Republicans pandered to these kooks. Let’s keep it simple. No one has a right to harbour communicable disease. No one has the right to be a Typhoid Mary. The REAL Church is NOT against vaccination and public health measures (as far as the konvertsy are concerned, they’re marginal and peripheral, thank God). The Republicans who pander to the anti-vaxxers also call themselves “Pro-Life”… their support for these nuts gives you the true measure of that… oh, those Einsteins also believe that President Obama was born in Kenya, that Michelle Obama is a transsexual, and that were huge conspiracies behind the JFK assassination, 9/11, and covering up Area 51 (“They keep a real alien spaceship hidden there”). Need I say more? Pass the jug…

I didn’t wake up one day and say, ”I’m gonna have cereal for breakfast and an abortion for lunch”. It was a difficult decision. It was also a decision that I’ve thought about every day for twelve years. It left deep emotional scars. Even though it was the right thing at that time in my life, it wasn’t something I wanted to do. People that stand outside of clinics with those signs are assholes. They aren’t Christian. They screamed at me and made the most difficult day of my life a million times more difficult. I’m not alone, either. I’m sure millions of other women have had the same experience. Therefore, if you’re one of those people holding up pictures of bloody foetuses and screaming “murderer” outside of a clinic, prepare yourself for hell because if you believe it exists, that’s where you’re going.

I need add nothing. I HATE the Pro-Life Movement as it’s a shameless whore for the US Republican Party… a faction that upholds perpetual warfare in foreign parts, torture, the TSA Gestapo, the Department of Homeland Security Cheka, the enriching of the Affluent Effluent at the expense of the rest of us, the gutting of Social Security, and destroying the social safety net. That’s NOT “Pro-Life”. If you’re in the so-called “Pro-Life Movement”, I oppose you and all of your works, as they go towards upholding an objectively evil political movement, one so evil that it merits the label “demonic” (for no man can serve two masters).

I don’t like abortion… I think that we should do our best to limit it… however, the present Pro-Life Movement is a sham and an imposture, and I’ll have nothing to do with it. By the way, I’m not the only Russian Orthodox person in the USA to feel this way. To oppose the Pro-Life Movement is NOT to endorse abortion. I oppose the hypocritical politicisation of this serious issue and its hijacking by amoral monsters such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Don’t forget how Cruz virtually spat in the face of Arab religious leaders… you want to support such godless sectarian filth? Now, that negates one’s Christianity…

23 November 2014. THIS is Why I Oppose the Organised “Pro-Life” Movement

00 Nick Anderson. The TRUTH about 'Pro-Lifers'. 2014

_____________________________

I oppose the so-called “Pro-Life Movement” completely and absolutely… it’s nothing of the sort. It’s hypocritical snake-oil of the worst possible sort. Both HH and Pope Francisco DEMAND that opposition to abortion has to also include a comprehensive social safety-net, otherwise, it’s noxious and corrosive humbuggery of the worst-possible variety. The US Republican Party is for capital punishment, long imprisonment as the option of first resort, perpetual warfare in foreign parts, totalitarian domestic policing, and enshrining rabid Evangelical radical sectarian nonsense in the law. Ergo, they’re not Pro-Life at all, to use Cardinal Bernardin’s definition of the “seamless garment”. Anti-abortion as advocated by American Republicans isn’t Pro-Life… that’s that.

One last thing… Tsar Aleksandr Aleksandrovich, as a matter of routine, commuted all death sentences, save for crimes against the state. Rick Perry does not. Who’s the Christian, and who’s the REAL conservative (American “conservatives” are just a different species of Liberal… fancy that)? Meaty bone to gnaw upon, isn’t it?
