“LOVE YOUR ENEMIES”

As a Christian I’m exhorted to be concerned about Bush, Cheney, Rove, Frist, Delay, etc. etc. etc. And I’m not, enough, I admit it. I am concerned about the poor, the oppressed, the marginalized, victims, the sick and disabled, minorities, etc. etc. etc.

One thing I learned from Liberation Theology is the necessity of solidarity with the poor and oppressed. This was a big deal for Latin America because both rich and poor claimed to be members of the same Church, and yet the rich and powerful were treating the poor like enemies rather than sisters and brothers. The powerful need the poor so that they may know the full effects of their policies: this is the real meaning of the concept “the preferential option for the poor.”

I could say I’m concerned about the souls of those in power. Not only are they not Orthodox, but they’re so bad besides. Their personal wellbeing could stand more solidarity with the poor and oppressed. Rulers need to be in-touch. And not just with “their base…the haves and the have-mores.” Queen Elizabeth II is more in touch with her nations’ poor than any (supposedly) elected or duly appointed person in the current American administration, and she’s unelected, and the world’s richest woman! We need more like her!

BRING BACK THE FAIRNESS DOCTRINE!

Lately I’ve been tuning in to conservative talk radio once in a while, to see what I as a so-called liberal am supposed to be up to…since, after all, there’s really no liberal broadcasting. And if this is what those in power in this country are listening to, I’m really concerned. It’s Taliban, fascist, racist, hate-filled, corporate, Nazi, homo-hating, anti-woman, war-mongering, classist, poor-hating, narrow-minded, close-minded, imperialist, etc. etc. etc.

What’s more maddening is that they’re doing this on MY AIRWAVES, with NO RESPONSIBILITY TO FAIRLY INFORM THE PUBLIC!!! It’s as if it was government-, taxpayer-funded!!! I’M PAYING FOR THIS!!!

It’s time broadcasters gave back to the people who let them broadcast.

And while we’re at it, let’s realize cable and satellite TV isn’t the wide-open medium it was expected to be, either, so they, too, need to have some public responsibility. That’s a spectrum, or comon-carrier, too! JUST SAY NO TO FAUX NEWS!!!

BUSHIES NOW CERTIFIABLY INSANE

Now they’re threatening ‘nuculer’ war against Iran. Yeah, that’ll convince them not to get weapons of their own! And keep a billion Muslims quiet, too!

VOTE NO ON WAR WITH IRAN!

Just what our Taliban and their Taliban want: World War Three.

BUSHIES MIS-SPENDING HIV/AIDS MONEY

They’re doing more abstinence education overseas than Congress authorized. Another case of flouting the authority of the Legislative Branch, picking and choosing how to enforce the law contrary to the will of lawmakers.
