Therapists for America’s wealthiest offer glimpse into how totally hard it is being the 1%
these people don’t deserve empathy MS. It’s like beautiful people complaining about being beautiful.
How warped a human being do you have to be to feel burdened by something most people can only wish they could have?
WTF – I feel like I have been living in a cave that I have not been more aware of this going on around me. How absolutely insidious.
From wiki –
In the late 1980s, several prominent evangelical authors used the phrase Dominion Theology (and other terms such as dominionism) to label a loose grouping of theological movements that made direct appeals to this passage in Genesis. Christians typically interpret this passage as meaning that God gave humankind responsibility over the Earth, but the distinctive aspect of Dominion Theology is that it is interpreted as a mandate for Christian stewardship in civil affairs, no less than in other human matters.
David Barton has advocated what he calls “seven mountains prophecy” where Christian conservatives should control and dominate “family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business and government.” Raphael Cruz has preached seven mountains theology, along with saying his son Ted Cruz is “anointed” to become a future leader.
Evangelicals are a bunch of sick bastards bent on using any means necessary tomconvert you to their beliefs.
Fuck David Barton. Fuck Raphael Cruz.
Brought this post over from the last page because I think it’s important to know. Check the previous page for the many interesting replys.
Jack where are you this evening???
Evening Realmsters, you guys know I love watching movies. So I have become very accustomed to seaching the different movie databases out there. I have made an observation that is kinda scary. But actually more tragic and disgusting than scary.
It concerns Netflix, which has grown to ginormous proportions, and as such wields much influence over the types of movies and programs consumed by the general public today.
After trying various third party Netflix search engines, I have most recently settled on “Allflicks” . Allflicks lets you search the entire current Netflix streaming database by a variety of options. So by searching “all genres” from say the last two decades, then sorting by highest Netflix star rating, guess what movie was in the group with the highest star rating (4.4).
The Ben Carson Story: Gifted Hands (2009)
Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as a pediatric neurosurgeon who overcomes enormous obstacles to study medicine and save lives at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Really??? Of all the movies out there this one ranks toward the very top??? I have also noticed that the many variations of Christian spiritual “propoganda” films (like Kirk Cameron’s Left Behind series for example) also have received an inordinant number of high marks. Not only that but these Christian movies keep popping up in the list of movies that Netflix suggests for you. Even though I loath these films and go out of my way to steer clear of them. Also any movie with the words “Christmas”, “angel” or any word that may inadvertantly suggest anything remotely related to Christians is rated disproportionly high.
This leads me to the inevitable conclusion that Netflix has been corrupted by the right wing conservatives (like people that support Ben Carson, wtf???), and the so called Christian Right who want to shove their beliefs down your throat. Who really runs Netflix??? Anyone know???
Looks like Ryan’s taking the speaker gig.
I had a feeling someone would talk him into it. Lyin’ Ryan rides again.
So this Dominionism movement has been going on for the last 25 years ????
I feel like Rip VanWinkle in that I just woke up to this nightmare.
I am still so freaking out over this.
I hate when people have the audacity to use such insidious a means for manipulation.
Jack – Where the heck are you??? I’m having a meltdown here.
Okay – let it go past you, wave. Chit like this happens on all levels, just be aware of what’s behind it all.
It’s gone. When these things upset me like this I just let go and walk away. Which I did.
But I am grateful that you brought this to my attention in the first place. Knowledge is power. And people need to know.
Exactly. Glad you blew off the steam.
Justin Trudeau is withdrawing Canadian jets from the raids on ISIS.
He also supports the Keystone XL pipeline.
Trudeau supports the Keystone XL pipeline—Canada’s bid to find new markets for its vast carbon reserves in the Alberta tar sands—a position that puts the Liberal leader at odds with campaigners and with Barack Obama.
That’s worrisome. Maybe he’ll change his mind now that he’s in the PM seat.
I hope so Classical.
That doesn’t sound very Liberal to me. I hope he wises up.
TY Tio. Never heard this. Young boys!
We were all young once………….
yes we were 🙂
Indeed we were….
love it fancy 😉
George W doesn’t like Ted Cruz.
And I don’t like either one. But at least with George – what you see is what you get
Yea, I had to agree with W about Cruz but he’s not any better.
We have a big fan of theirs on The Realm, don’t we?
Yes Classical. Love The Bayonets.!!!!!! 🙂
😀 There you are!
My fav Los Lobos song Tio. ❤
Heartbreakingly beautiful. ❤
Yes Tio, It is sad. 😦
We have a new young neophyte as our Prime Minister! And a lefty.He is proposing INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING! And it will sail through Parliament.
Here is some back story from people smarter than me..
My friend in Montreal said that Thomas Mulcair has the personality of a carp. But, thought he’d be a better leader than Trudeau.
Better, more competent………..
Perhaps,the liberals have a long standing party that has governed well.Justin will have to learn on the job!
Let’s hope he learns quick.
Congrats, X! I hope he does you proud.
I voted for his Dad! He did a lot for Canada .Pierre Elliot Trudeau,do you know his story CG?
He was a brilliant man.
Not very much, X – tell me about him, please.
I wish our congress would open the purse strings for Infrastructure X.
Could happen if Americans at least elect a Dem President and senate!
Hoping for a dem President but if we don’t give him/her a good house and congress nothing will get done as with Obama.
HELLary or Bernie it will be the PEOPLE IN THE END THAT SCREW THINGS-UP by this I mean Lazy, self defeatist, non voting Post Obama Libs.
It will be the dems fault if they don’t vote and Hillary or Bernie goes down. I’m getting tired of politics and a long way to go. 😦
That’s why I mostly concentrate on TROLLMP making fun of the guy otherwise by the time the elections come I’ll be burned out.
Good idea. Obama can’t run again and I’m kind of glad cause he would. Then I would do more then jest. 😀
See he still likes me. 😛 Amazing what you can find. I was like a kid when I found this. 🙂
This is what I meant to post! oops
Nite Tio Sleep well. Peace.
Good night, Dawg – sleep well. Ttyl.
Nite CBD – sweet dreams.
Keystone not expected to happen.
Hi, Haruko. Eeeeew – that link has cooties!!!!! 😛
Well, you don’t have to post there! 😀
Pbbbbbttttt! You made me give her a click! 😀
Yeah, but it’s a legitimate article about the subtleties of Canadian politics. I couldn’t just copy and paste the whole article here.
As long as you cite your source
Burn the witch!
Did you need something my dear?
How Justin Trudeau won:
What’s the deal with that guy? I know nothing about him.
Neither does anyone else.
I know he’s a LIB but hey give the guy a break he’s not an OBAMA Lib 😀
To be fair I’ll say WE AMERICANS, I think Maple Leaves should have a clue.
Alrighty then. X says he’ll have to learn on the job. Now there’s a vote of confidence.
That’s the same thing we said about the community organizer in chief.
Community organizer helps the poor and besides you need to do a community job to get in Harvard and he did learn a lot, like congress is not going to help this black man.
He says he’s gonna try to legalise pot, too!
He’s young, he’s inexperienced, his father was the Prime Minister of Canada for 14 years. He was a very good campaigner. The Liberal Party has a reputation of being centrist. IMO, they were ruined by a bunch of old, corrupt farts 10-15 years ago. These guys were involved in all sorts of graft and bribes, etc. The party fell apart as a result. The old guard has been pushed aside and Trudeau is part of the new guard.
One of the things that killed the NDP is they supported the Conservatives’ ban on headscarves for Muslim women during citizenship ceremonies. They made a terrible decision supporting that. At the time, it looked like they were going to win the election.
Ok this helps a bit. I’m reading he won’t fight ISIS? I’m not shocked Canadians don’t like to get involved in scuffles and I get that but we live in a far more radical world today that when the old school libs were in power.
At one point the world will need to unite against ISIS.
Canada will maintain humanitarian aid and training but their jets will no longer fly bombing missions against ISIS.
Well it’s not unlike with what one expects from the average Canadian, we all know they reject conflict. I still think when it comes to ISIS the world needs to think in terms of special circumstances and we all need to be on board.
Here we abhor war, mostly, yet turn a blind eye and make every justification when our drones kill innocent children–how LIBS love to decry the senseless killings of Newton but call it “breaking a few eggs”, when poor muslim kids get the beejesus bombed out of them. I suppose it’s ok because them dirty muslim extremist are killing Christians—yep! welcome to America.
Pierre Trudeau, 1970. Hee, OK, this photo cracks me up.
HA! I just noticed the NSA pop-up on the realm.
Morning good folk of the Realm………………………and Jack.
