I love how "conservatives" are rejecting both the President of the United States and the Pope and embracing the President of Russia.

"One need not be a communist to care passionately for the poor. In the same way that one need not be a communist to criticize certain elements of an economic system that can at times lead to inequities and social exclusion."

Frank N Stein: Agent Smiths Laugh: Frank N Stein: Agent Smiths Laugh: AgentPothead: Today's republicans would literally have their minds explode if they knew what "republican" meant 100 years ago.

Hell, their heads would explode if they actually had a clue what communism and socialism actually meant.

But that would take education and education is taboo unless it's Jesus approved.

Communism is a political branch of Marxism that wishes to enact socialism, a socio-economic system in which the means of production is controlled by the collective.

Now shut up.

No.

Or don't. No biggy. Happy Saturday.

ultramarinblaa: Warning: Reading the townhall comment will make you loose at least 10 iq points. Those is some serious teabagging delusions.


Christ almighty, my head hurts. I got maybe halfway down the page of comments before parts of my brain wanted to rebel so that I was tasting light and touching sound. It got particularly bad when one commenter called someone [paraphrased] a typical liberal-communist homosexual. And upon reading that all liberals are always in lockstep at all times on all issues, well...I almost punched my monitor.

And I lost fifty IQ points, thanks.

SilentStrider: Sad that he actually has to say that. That people's hearts are so hardened to the actual words of the Bible is dissappointing to see.


The average rightard has serious doubts about scriptures that speak about things like caring for those in poverty, or that the rich man has as much chance in getting into Heaven as a camel does getting through the eye of a needle. That's why they're just chucking King James out and starting work on their own Bible, which will have none of that kindness or compassion crap that rightards hate so much.

FunkOut: Sgt Otter: "When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why they are poor, they call me a Communist."

- Hélder Câmara

Without poor people around, how will we get that warm fuzzy feeling in our heart about doing the right thing as we toss that dented outdated generic can of cream of lima bean soup into the food bank donation bin?


Yeah fark charity, right?

hardinparamedic: Pattuq: The only way Capitalism is sustainable is if you immediately shut up anyone with other ideas.  There's a lot of propaganda dedicated to making sure everyone supports it, even though capitalism only benefits a small percentage of the population.

Both capitalism and communism are unsustainable in a modern information age, where the majority of the population can be easily educated to the abuses and fallacies of both pure systems.

The real solution lies in the middle, namely with regulated freedom of business, and social democratic policies which provide support structures for the poor, needy, and ill to prevent from creating a continual lower poverty-ridden class.


Thanks to the internet many many many people have woken up that fact - we are getting screwed - and what's worse, on purpose. "The Man" is currently working very hard to make sure nothing changes or at least gets worse before it gets better, and boy is it working in the US.

Somacandra: FTFA: One need not be a communist to care passionately for the poor. In the same way that one need not be a communist to criticize certain elements of an economic system that can at times lead to inequities and social exclusion.

While certainly Pope Francis has been the target of reactionary economic criticism, the actual linked article is hardly critical of him. In fact, this is probably by far the most nuanced article I've seen on Townhall since...well forever. The author certainly accepts the role of the Gospel in uplifting the poor. You know, that whole 'Sermon On The Mount/Gospel of Matthew' thing.


Dammit. I'm going to have to give TownHall a click now. *sigh*

Not at all. Today's republicans are fascist. Today's democrats are conservatives. There are no liberals.
