This digital periodical will question the ridiculous nature of those in power constantly trying to convince us they have our best interests at heart. Thinking the worse about those you govern won’t endear them to you. Being fawned over by those with paid access is not flattery Senators and Congress members. Manipulating the haters and the willfully ignorant among the citizenry to trouble people who’ve done them no harm blots your soul. I have witnessed God’s word in truth as he seeth that everybody’s day will come…
Article 4: Equality Is?
How should I address in writing all my thoughts on the subjects of Politics, Marxism, Critical Race Theory and God? Let me give it some ‘Solomon’ wisdom and see if I can make enough sense of it if only for myself. I’ll start with Marxism. Marxism seems to be a dirty and somewhat loaded word Republicans like to throw around. Marxism’s basic principle is that a society should be classless. A classless society would then have rules in place where all the people would be equally cared for, and burdens would be shared. This would result in few if any rich people. Of course Marxism is a political philosophy developed by a man and like with all human beings having flaws the concept has flaws.
Secondly I’ll bring in God. His word in 2 Corinthians 8: vs 13-15…’For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened: But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality: As it is written, HE THAT HAD GATHERED MUCH HAD NOTHING OVER; AND HE THAT HAD GATHERED LITTLE HAD NO LACK.’ Now I know Republicans and so-called evangelicals don’t like hearing about ‘loving thy neighbor as thyself’. They probably mean only white people because they have so much history helping out Black people who’ve been enslaved and oppressed in America. Oh, I forgot this part. Pretend hatred isn’t real because the guy that’s preaching the sermon in so-called church only removed his hood before he stepped into the pulpit.
Now to Critical Race Theory. There’s those Republicans again trying to align the shameful guilt they have for what their ancestors did while ignoring the shameful things white people are doing in replacing those behaviors. I said it before. Hatred never dies if it brings coin! Republicans have always wielded this dark weapon. The only difference now is they are being exposed and it makes them mad being called on it. I’m so sorry, wait, let me wipe my crocodile tears Republicans, that Black people are now telling the truth about what was done and still being done to us. Studying how hatred is kept alive is fascinating. By that I mean that some human beings still look the other way while others suffer horribly. Do some people really believe no harm is done putting Black children in jail because they act out in school?
Redlining neighborhoods to keep Black people from owning homes has effects on physical and mental health. Not residing in the place of one’s affordable desires lessens joy, serenity and diminishes achievements. Knowing that the police force allows men and women with hatred in their heart to police people of color is one thing but protecting them tells every true God fearing Christian that police department is unjust. That truth telling is what has kept Black people sane and hopeful. Black people just cock their heads sideways and watch how those people who don’t want to know what’s going on twist themselves in knots trying not to believe the truth. Critical Race Theory is therapy for Black people because we want to know what went on and what’s going on, and my oh my how we call it like we see it.
Now to Politics. I told you once and I’ll say it again. Senator Joe Manchin is inside the chocolate factory, and he intends to keep the door closed behind him. He lives a lavish lifestyle because of government service. He didn’t make his money in the private sector. He didn’t purchase that boat from business revenue. It’s funny that he said he couldn’t take it home to the residents of West Virginia because they would not have supported his yes vote for Build Back Better. I’ll let someone else call up the abject poverty in his state, but who cares as long as he is good which is all he see when he looks in the mirror. It is still wrong to profit from people that believe their vote keeps government benefits away from ‘those’ people. Just because they vote Republican doesn’t mean you let them suffer. I suppose it’s the American way. Supreme Court Associate Justice Gorsuch didn’t turn down a chance to be on the U.S. Supreme Court even if his seat was stolen from someone else. I so dislike when I answer my own question.
Inflation? Really? Inflation is good when it holds and locks in higher wages. Grow up people. Now to all the people paying ‘inflated’ prices for used cars. You’re all idiots! Stop doing that right now! Don’t let me come back here and say it again. More urgent matters need my attention. Look. I’ve not been able to buy this brand of cheese I like. I’ve cut back on T-bone and rib eyes. I’ve gone back to combining errands. I currently need a new dishwasher. I will wait until I encounter the price I want. Don’t stop buying the necessities like food, clothing and paying your bills. Just support the economy smartly for your household and wait for those things like cars and whatnots that have been ‘jacked up’ to return to normal price points.
This is for all the so-called evangelicals that act in ways that don’t reflect what’s in the Holy Bible. Some wisdom to help your Republican friends see the error of their ways. Ecclesiastes 5:9…’Moreover the profit of the Earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.’ I guess that’s why God’s word didn’t align with the beliefs of these so-called churches in the south huh? I’ll say it. With Republican orthodoxy it can be said that God is Marxist. Funny how people can craft their own religion when the teaching and life of Jesus Christ don’t align with their values. Probably why these Republicans whip up hatred so quickly to distract their followers. By the way their followers will have their day before God as well. Wouldn’t want to stand before God and say somebody told me to destroy democracy. Hope 30 pieces of silver was worth it.
Equality goes a long way and touches all of us the same. It just faces many cruel objectors.
