Civility and America’s dying values

  1. It’s all about capitalism isn’t it?
    The media spews hate because people like to hate, they like to listen to it, they want to get all worked up and angry about things they don’t even understand. People watch it, they watch the commercials, and money is made. Those media agencies that don’t show the hate don’t get the audience and don’t make the money. Hate is big money these days. Beck, Limbaugh and Palin can attest to that.

    I’m still trying to figure out why so many Republicans claim to be Christians and then want to prevent lower income people from having health care. Did they ever ask themselves what Jesus would do? Would Jesus say “fuck you poor people, you don’t get the medication you need, but dont’ worry, you get to go to heaven?” But then, the Christians frequently dumbfound me with their stupidity when they claim that Jesus was not a pacifist, and would have been “for” the war in Iraq.

    I must have been on drugs when I read the new testament.
    Indeed money makes the world go around. Ratings, advertising, book sales, personal appearances — and whatever it takes to get them. I wonder what those people would say if they weren’t getting paid for saying it? Of course, with no one there to report it, who’d know?

    Yep, that whole Christian double standard thing has never made any sense to me, especially the part where so-called “good Christians” (Golden Rule and all that) espouse hate and intolerance.

... and that's my two cents
