"Change" and "yes we can" change from what to what? That's what matters, not just change for change's sake. Yes we can. Yes we can what? Yes we can go hunt down and kill people?
Listen, Barack Obama is going to kill people. He's going to order and authorize and not prevent death and destruction. He'll do that in the name of preventing greater death and destruction. Nevertheless, he'll preside over a system that will get it wrong — meaning he will kill innocent people.
What the Hell are we doing? Why are we still going backwards?
Barack Obama is not the savior. He's a mixed bag with loads of the dark side spewing from his mouth. I don't care whether he's pink with purple polka dots. He's still spewing garbage. Being half Black doesn't put his policies and practices beyond criticism. He's wrong. He's flat out wrong.
He talks about change while he surrounds himself with just going back to Clinton. Clinton was a mess. His administration looked better than did Bush-41's, Reagan's, and Carter's in many respects, because he rode on and squandered the Peace Dividend and managed to get out just before the dot-com bubble burst that would have blown up in his face if he could have served another term. He presided over the dismantling of U.S. industry without putting anything in its place, such as green industry that was right there in the offering then just as much as it still is now. He was no environmentalist. He played fast and loose with the economic statistics. He made a mess of foreign interventions — killing some 500 thousand Iraqi children. I'm not going to go on here.
Look, I don't judge or condemn Bill Clinton. I'm only pointing out that we could have done vastly better. We could have done vastly better than Barack Obama too. I'm pointing it out now so that when things go wrong, there will be a trail concerning what should have been done.
The nation should have embraced real Christianity, as in it should have embraced, and still should, the political economy laid out by Jesus Christ. We can definitely have the giving and sharing economy that Jesus expressed if we will just stop being so God damned self-centered. It is God damned. The selfishness inherent in the current U.S. economic model doesn't please God. It displeases God.
Look again. Jesus said, But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. (Luke 6:24)
There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Why is that? Well, to be rich under the current system, one must avoid sharing. One must deprive others. So, that's it. That's all to which the rich may look forward, that it will all be behind them. They will get their reward for the reward they already received, meaning exactly what Jesus said. They have no good reward later, because they were selfish, lying serpents in this world. Think about it. Is that too harsh? No, it is not. It is strong to be a strong warning — to get attention, to drive home the impression.
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? (Matthew 23:33)
Sure, people who never become rich can be guilty of unrepentant lying too. That doesn't excuse anyone though.
