Jesus was born in what is today Israel, would most likely have looked like somebody from the Middle East. Still I was thinking, perhaps each culture should be allowed to have Jesus in their image. I mean, if it will help spread his story and word.

7. Roger Rabbit spews:

Republicans are good at three things: Making it hard for poor people to vote, easy for criminals and crazy people to get guns, and lining private contractors’ pockets with taxpayers’ money.

“The budget debate … Washington often seems to come down to guns versus butter, or at least its contemporary manifestation, Reaper Drones versus food stamps. What gets lost in the increasingly caustic rhetoric is just how inefficient the U.S. government is when it … is outsourcing tasks to hugely profitable private companies. … [T]he budget … does nothing to curtail wasteful spending on companies that are among the nation’s richest and most powerful. …

“Essentially, the federal government operates two contracting systems, separate and unequal. One hires profit-making corporations, the other handles nonprofits. [Bet you didn't know that, huh? -- RR] Washington lavishes taxpayers’ money on for-profits. Many … contracting firms making good money for doing … little work ring the nation’s capital and are … known as Beltway Bandits. …

“Last year, contractors were allowed to charge the government as much as $763,029 per worker. [Bet you didn't know that, either! -- RR] … For-profit contractors charge not just for salaries, but also for management pay and perks – like corporate golf outings and executive retreats – as well as the cost of renting space or operating buildings the contractors own, plus any other overhead. …

“A study by … the Government Accountability Office, found that many nonprofit contractors get between nothing and 3 percent of a contract to cover overhead, a sum the office said was woefully inadequate. Urban Institute studies show that overhead costs for nonprofit human services agencies typically run about 17 percent. ‘The government expects nonprofits to do work for less than the cost of doing the work,’ said Rick Cohen, who negotiated nonprofit contracts with federal agencies and now writes about such issues for Nonprofit Quarterly. Cohen broke into laughter when asked about a nonprofit billing for overhead costs. ‘Unlike corporations, the feds don’t let you charge anything for indirect costs …,’ he said. ‘Corporate contractors operate in whole different world from nonprofits,’ which he said are treated with suspicion and are closely audited compared to corporate contractors. ‘The government also makes it a practice to be late paying nonprofits, which is why so many of them are in a constant cash crisis,’ he said.”

http://www.newsweek.com/us-government-paying-through-nose-private-contractors-224370

Roger Rabbit Commentary: Outsourcing government work, and then paying huge sums of your money to greedy contractors, is of course a Republican idea. What do wanna bet a chunk of your tax dollars which finds its way into the hands of these for-profit thieves gets passed on to Republican candidates as campaign contributions? My guess is the odds of that are somewhere north of 99.9999999999999%. Republicans certainly don’t believe in paying for Republican political campaigns themselves if they can hijack your money and use it for that purpose. Which, my guess is, is exactly what they’re doing. Beyond disgusting.

8. Roger Rabbit spews:

Wanna reduce government spending and deficits? Here’s how: “Congress could also save taxpayers … $300 billion annually… by replacing corporate contract workers with civil servants.”

http://www.newsweek.com/us-government-paying-through-nose-private-contractors-224370

Roger Rabbit Commentary: I guess Republicans in Congress were too busy trying to cut the pensions and health benefits of federal workers and military personnel to notice this, because these cost savings didn’t make it into the budget deal.

Folks, we need to have a frank talk about early intervention. The objective is to identify disturbed children and get them into mental health therapy before they grow up to become school shooters or Republican voters.

BTW Puddy and Mrs Puddy have been to the place in Pretoria where Mandela lies in state. May bring the pictures to a DRUNKEN DUMMOCRETIN some day! Interesting how Al NoSoSharpton backtracked from the previous day cut of a few words out of context Bill O’Reilly’s very positive discussion on Nelson Mandela. Bill shamed Al NotSoSharpton into playing the unedited because Bill has the cable power NoSoSharpton doesn’t possess! Bill rightly said NoSoSharpton is a “dishonest purveyor of information”! NoSoSharpton is in cover his black ASS mode!

Even the left wrong

newspaper of record http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/08/opinion/sunday/keller-nelson-mandela-communist.html?_r=1&

allowed it’s ex-executive editor to write about Mandela being a Communist, just a Bill O’Reilly rightfully said. And since it’s historically known Mandela joined Communism BEFORE his prison term hmmm…, why are Al’s pink panties in a knot?

Why is Al NotSoSharpton all up in arms? Maybe he’s upset Karen Finney apologized for her deceit, Bill posted pictures of his visit to Soweto. Karen Finney apologized! Puddy and Mrs Puddy been to Soweto. We cried because the living conditions were sad.

Maybe Al is jealous Bill O visited Soweto while Al didn’t? But all admit Mandela put his personal feelings aside for South Africa. Unfortunately their leaders today are lining their pockets.

Maybe Al doesn’t want people to know his Actionless network owes over $850 Large to the IRS.

Germany now has a government. The Social Democrats have accepted the coalition agreement with the Christian Democrats. Chancellor Merkel, whose CDU won the most votes, is still Chancellor. In what may be a first for Germany, all registered members of the Social Democrats got to vote on the deal.

One of the concessions Merkel made, was a national minimum wage of€8.50 an hour(over$11 in US dollars). She only needed four votes more in September’s election, and she would have been first German Chancellor since Adenauer to not need a coalition partner. The Grand Coalition became necessary after the liberal, pro-business Free Democrats failed to get re-elected.

Washington was white.

Whites killing whites is regrettable, but part of the way we apportion power.

Mandela was black.

Blacks killing whites can never be allowed, it is the greatest crime.

37. Liberal Scientist is the "Most vile leftist on this blog!" spews:

@35
Also, the American Revolution was a struggle between economic elites in the colonies (IIRC, Ben Franklin was one of the richest men in the colonies), and economic elites in Great Britain.

It was also a very long time ago – long enough to be sanitized to a fairy tale.

Mandela et al were engaging in a struggle in which the very poor and downtrodden were demanding basic human rights – including the right not to be exploited by economic elites, who happen to be white.

Mandela can therefore be vilified as a Communist, as a murderer and safely be compartmentalized in a category very far away from our good revolutionaries.

It’s funny you know so much about Harry Hay, puddibigot.

That aside, your attempts to smear gay people with the NAMBLA boogeyman is just one more in a long series of slurs and bigotries.

Hay’s position can be debated – his defense of NAMBLA, as I understand it, comes from the fact that he thought, in our vicious culture, that 13, 14, 15 year old boys, emerging into their sexuality at gay young men, needed most in their lives positive gay male role models.

He was not advocating the exploitation of little boys.

Whether his position was correct or not, the fact remains that those kids – boys and girls – coming out as gay as teenagers, trying to find their authentic selves, suffer horrendous rates of depression, abuse, homelessness and suicide.

The reason is…the bigotry and hatred in our society that you and your ilk gleefully perpetrate.

You have the blood of these children on your hands, puddibigot – thanks for reminding us.

44. Liberal Scientist is the "Most vile leftist on this blog!" spews:

From Kevin Jennings‘ wikipedia page….

Social conservatives campaigned against Jennings’ appointment because they alleged he condoned child molestation based on the 2004 incident over a teen’s story he related in his book One teacher in 10 : LGBT educators share their stories. The allegations were proven to be false when it was shown the student was above the age of consent and no sex had occurred. 53 Republican members of the House of Representatives signed a letter to the Obama administration that called for Jennings’ dismissal. Education Secretary Duncan, the White House, the NEA, and the National Association of Secondary School Principals have supported Jennings’ appointment, with Duncan saying Jennings was “uniquely qualified for his job.”

“If we have a system where the government is going to be the principal provider of health care for the country, we’re done.

Then, if you get sick and you don’t get health care, you die and you don’t vote. It’s actually a pretty clever system. Take care of the people who can vote and people who can’t vote, get rid of them as quickly as possible by not giving them care so they can’t vote against you. That’s how it works.”

Vile Republicans double, triple, quadruple, ad-infinitum down on the “Welfare Queen” myth. Here’s some truth on that:

“The facts defy the stereotypes. The largest group of food-stamp recipients is white; 45 percent of all beneficiaries are children; and most people eligible for Medicaid are families with children in which at least one person in the household has a job.”

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/12/the-return-of-the-welfare-queen/282337/

For example:

‘”I don’t have any use for the federal government,” Rupe said, even though his household’s $13,000 yearly income comes exclusively from Washington. “It’s a bunch of liars, crooks, and thieves, and they’ve never done anything for me. I’m not ungrateful, but I don’t have much faith in this healthcare law. Do I think it’s going to work? No. Do I think it’s going to bankrupt the country? Yes.”

Rupe sounds like he could be standing on a soapbox at a Tea Party rally, but he happens to be sitting in a back room at the Family Health Centers’ largest clinic in Louisville—signing up for Medicaid. Rupe, who is white, insists that illegal immigrants from Mexico and Africa get more government assistance than he does. (Illegal immigrants do not, in fact, qualify for Medicaid or coverage under the Affordable Care Act.)’

Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican

A TvNewsLIES Reader contribution.
By John Gray Cincinnati, Ohio

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn’t think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.

Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republican’s would still be sitting in the dark)

He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.

He turns on a radio talk show, the host’s keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn’t tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I’m a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have”.

Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.

So the Arapahoe High School shooter was an opinionated Socialist with a gun.

Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, said he had political views that were “outside the mainstream”.

Oh no! Carl and Brendon… Visit HA and you’ll discover many HA DUMMOCRETINS with political views that ARE “outside the mainstream”.

Well Puddy likes to wait until the FACTS appear… Looks like another mentally deranged gun toting DUMMOCRETIN with delusions of economic equality delivered by the slobbering libtard DUMMOCRETIN media!

Prolly was a PMSNBC viewer. Notice the video is from the lean leftist cable looking for a conservative view to throw up there. EPIC FAYLE PMSNBC!

I see the gay-hating puddibigot is at it again this morning.

*EYE ROLL*

Why do you call yourself a “Christian”, puddibigot, when every post you write is a venomous diatribe against all you hate?

Does you Jesus tell you to write hate-filled posts?

As an atheist trying to understand Christians, tell me, is this behavior of yours on these threads the paragon of Christian behavior? Would you want these posts read aloud, attributed to you, in your church every week?

Do Christians like it when gay teenagers kill themselves, thinking it’s their only response to a society that hates them?

Do Christians advocate that the police torture children when they’re taken into custody?

Is it the “Christian” thing to do, what your Republicans in Congress are doing, and letting the poor and unemployed go without assistance in the dead of winter?

That’s the best you have schmucko-lunatic? When Puddy delivers facts you call it hate? Puddy finds the links delivers facts and schmucko-lunatic HATES schmucko-lunatic has to view those facts. Well schmucko-lunatic… if you stopped visiting left-wrong sites you’d be educated.

No need to answer your silly ASSED questions because you framed them incorrectly!

Sad so sad schmucko-lunatic!

@70

As usual, you have nothing to provide in defense of your relentless hate.

Why can’t you answer any of my questions?

Is it shame?

If so, perhaps there is hope for you. I was thinking about this yesterday, as I shopped down at Pike Place Market, and ventured into a Tibetan shop….and a plaque about ‘compassion’ caught my eye.

I hope for you, puddy – I hope someday you can overcome whatever terrible pain it is you have inside you – the pain that leads you to such hate, such venom, such rejection of your human brothers and sisters who don’t conform to what you call ‘worthy’ or who aren’t explicitly in your tribe.

Perhaps some day you’ll take this pain that clearly rends you and tortures you…and turn it into something loving and compassionate.

On Tuesday, Germany swears in it’s new government. Chancellor Merkel will have her third term, and and the Social Democrats get the Vice Chancellor, and the foreign ministry, as well as the ministries of Justice, Labor, environment, Family Affairs/Senior Citizens/Women and Youth, and the Party Chairman gets the combined economy and energy ministry. The last one was recently combined to help streamline Germany’s shift to alternative and renewable energy in response to the phase out of nuclear energy. The Christian Democratic Union and Christian Social Union will have Defense, finqnce, health, education, agriculture, development, transportation/digital infrastructure, and a few others.

This kind of compromise may not happen here. We have cabinet members from opposite parties, but rarely so many. One reason that the Grand Coalition was necessary, is the Union Bloc came 5 seats short of an outright majority, and the usual kingmakers, the liberal, pro business Free Democrats, failed to win the 5% needed for re-election. They will be back in 2017, though. They usually won around 5%, 2009′s historic 14%, was an outlier for them, as a rejection of the previous Grand Coalition. The Center Left and Left actually won more votes, but the Social Democrats, at the Federal level will not work with Die Lienke(The Left) party, as they were founded by former East German Communist party members.
