That is only for cartoons. I came across some verses in the Bible this morning that reminded me of the real problem.
(Proverbs 4:16-7 KJV) For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.Does that not describe a lot of the politicians and their media sycophants that we see on a regular basis. It isn’t a matter of cute little caricatures. It is a matter of evil little hearts that glory in inflicting mischief on others. What else would explain the constant ignoring of testimony and basic facts? How else could they justify setting aside due process, the rule of law and a presumption of innocence? You need to understand that when they intimidate a Jeff Flake into craven jelly they walk around off camera giving each other high-fives. When they browbeat a witness with gotcha questions they are swooning with a sense of power inside.
They know what is best for us and don’t care how much they destroy in the process of creating a perfect world.
Of course we also have the potential arrogance of becoming so self-righteous that we join them, just another team in the National Evil Team. That is why it is important to keep a standard of unchanging right and wrong. For Christians that starts in the Bible. For Jews in the books of what I call the Old Testament. For assorted pagans I would suggest that you consult your sources of moral authority and act on it. I know where serious Jews and Christians will come down. I don’t know enough about Buddhists and Hindus to speak with authority.
The battle goes on. Each of us gets to choose which side we are on. Sadly it seems like all of the Democrats and too many of the Republicans have already made the choice that can destroy life as we know it.
An election is coming. Vote before you are forced to revolt.
