In an earlier diary, I explained how extremely important intellect is to me, and how I voted a straight Democratic ticket because of what I judge to be the far superior intellect of the Democratic party.I mean, the Democrats know the difference between a noun and an adjective, which is far more than one can say about the Republicans.So you either do what Mike Huckabee says or it’s off to the hellfires for you. heck, it’s whatever you want it to be as long as you vote for Romney.”One thing that I have learned in my 70 years of life is that the Supreme God has a way of slamming the brakes on our human stupidity.I would take these moral scolds a wee bit more seriously—just a bit, mind you—if I had, say, ever heard of someone being evicted from their religion over their unwavering public support for torture. And of course, I did ALL of these things, and had a WONDERFUL time while doing it.. The current position is that he would love to sign a constitutional amendment banning abortion in all cases. The current position is that abortion is acceptable in some cases, and he’s offended by any Republican who disagrees. This Presidential campaign has been downright zany at times, thanks to the stupid Republicans.Or if public endorsement of the death penalty was an excommunication-worthy offense, because hey, life is life. The current meme is that “God” sent Hurricane Sandy to this country to punish us for not hating gays and lesbians enough.But it’s not, and it never will be, because modern religious conservatism is about sex, sex, and sex. Heck, if they want a REAL jolt, maybe they should read the Secret Gospel of Mark.
Your vote will affect the future and be recorded in eternity.But then only a fool would place Limbaugh’s intellectual capacity on the same level as that of a slug, let alone the level of Albert Einstein.I have never been a hero-worshipper, but if I were, my four biggest heroes would be FDR, Abraham Lincoln, Bill Clinton, and Barak Obama. Lincoln ended the awful slave trade over the objections of those in the Bible Belt.I have a job to do in New Jersey that is much bigger than presidential politics. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me. Two men who are at the opposite ends of the political spectrum find the ability to completely ignore “abortion” and “Israel” and instead focus on the hurting humanity who live in the middle of the havoc that Hurricane Sandy has wreaked.Jed Lewwison was spot on; only Mitt Romney – and maybe Billy Graham and Pat Robertson – could hate the show of mutual respect and cooperation that Obama and Christie displayed.
