Outrage: Christians Overrepresented in Congress

“Pew Reports `Christians overrepresented in Congress`: 55 percent Protestant, 30 percent Catholic, 6 percent Jewish

The new Congress that was sworn in Thursday afternoon is significantly more religious and Christian than the nation it represents, according to an analysis of religions claimed by House and Senate members.

Most notable, while 23 percent of the nation claims to be unaffiliated, atheist, or simply `none,` there is just one member of that group. Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said that she is religiously unaffiliated, said the analysis from the Pew Research Center.”

Washington Examiner

Christians, especially evangelicals, often lament that they suffer discrimination and persecution at the hands of the federal government, but the fact is that the United States is the only democracy where evangelicals and fundamentalist Christians control the levers of power.

In fact, according to Pew, Christians are overrepresented in Congress, and that`s an intolerable state of affairs in a pluralistic democracy.

Granted, some of the members of Congress identify as Christians out of political expediency, and they are probably atheist or simply nonreligious. But there are still too many Christians in Congress.

America wasn`t founded as a Christian nation, and it`s not a Christian nation now, and it behooves us to elect politicians who are more representative of our religiously diverse nation.

The new Congress is significantly more diverse, ethnically and religiously and gender- wise, than any other Congress, but we still have a long way to go in creating a more perfect union.

It`s a sad indictment of our society that evangelical Roy Moore, who was credibly accused by several women of molesting them when they were girls, was almost elected to the Senate, but a candidate who is openly atheist has no chance of winning any election, even dogcatcher.

I`m not an atheist or a Muslim, but I long for the day when an openly atheist or Muslim is elected President of the United States. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/pew-christians-overrepresented-in-congress-55-percent-protestant-30-percent-catholic-6-percent-jewish

Harry Reid: Donald Trump is Amoral

Amoral Bastard

“Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called President Donald Trump an amoral person and said he`s the worst President we`ve ever had in an interview with The New York Times Magazine published Wednesday.

`Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral,` Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said in the interview. `Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn`t make a difference. No conscience.`

Reid, who retired in 2017 at the end of his fifth term, told the magazine that Trump `is without question the worst president we`ve ever had.`”

CNN

Harry Reid the former Senate Majority Leader and former boxer rarely pulls his punches, and he delivered a haymaker punch to Donald Trump`s reputation in an interview with the New York Times Magazine.

Reid has terminal pancreatic cancer and he will soon die, so he held nothing back in his devastating assessment of Trump.

Reid is spot on: Trump is amoral. He lacks a moral compass, he`s unconcerned with the rightness or wrongness of his actions, and he cares only about how they will benefit him.

I would go a step further than Reid, Trump is a sociopath. He`s totally unconcerned about how his draconian immigration policies will affect poor people dreaming of a better life in America because he has no empathy for anyone, and certainly not for people of color.

If Trump shot and killed someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue he wouldn`t feel any remorse or regret, he`s a soulless monster.

Trump is an aberration, a vulgar and racist sociopath who craps on social norms, the Constitution, the teachings of the Bible, and the rule of law.

But what about the 30-something percent of the American electorate that would support him even if he wantonly shot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue?

We`re not talking about just one sick and twisted individual, but about millions of white evangelicals who put political expediency above the religious views they profess to hold dear.

I pray Trump will be impeached and removed from office in the near future, but how do we as a society rid ourselves of millions of degenerate white evangelicals?

Viral Video: Maggi the Pooch and Pumpkin the Kitty Love on Each Other

In the holiday season peace and goodwill should prevail, but the human heart is cold and heartless and there`s precious little love and warmth even during this festive time.

Democrats and Republican don`t take a break from sniping at each other during the holidays, and we don`t take a timeout from quarreling with our family and friends.

We must look to the animal kingdom for an example of true love and friendship. A video that`s garnered millions of views on Twitter depicts a heartwarming moment between a pooch and a kitty.

The short clip shows doggie Maggi and her friend kitty Pumpkin loving on each other. Maggi gently pets Pumpkin`s back, and Pumpkin reciprocates by hugging Maggi.

Can`t we all just get along like Maggie and Pumpkin?

Donald Trump’s Incredibly Shrinking Wall

Wanker

Donald Trump is suffering from an embarrassing shrinkage problem that only George Constanza could understand. I`m not referring to the puny presidential pecker, if that worm shrank you would need a microscope to see it.

I`m talking about Trump`s incredibly shrinking wall, during the presidential campaign he spoke of it in such lofty terms, that his base imagined a colossal structure that would rival the Great Wall of China.

Trump described his proposed wall as 1,000 miles long, made of concrete slabs, and rising 35 to 40 feet in the air.

And of course he repeated ad nauseam that Mexico would pay for the damned thing. Mexico will erect a phallic symbol taller than the Washington Monument in honor of Trump before it finances his boondoggle.

Trump has given up on the idea of having our Southern neighbor pay for the wall, and now his is holding nearly 1 million federal employees hostage in a bid to have taxpayers fund his monstrosity.

Trump`s rhetoric on his proposed wall between the United States and Mexico has changed, nowadays he`s just as likely to call it a fence, steel slabs or a barrier as he is to refer to it as a wall.

The mighty 1,000 mile wall has been downsized to a paltry 500 miles, and he might eventually settle for a 10 mile bead curtain, made in China.

The Democrats shouldn`t give an inch, let Trump explain to his fanatical base that the wall was just a rhetorical device, and that it will never be built.

The World Will End Not With a Bang or a Whimper But With a Trump Tweet

Stable Genius

In 2018 Donald Trump famously referred to himself as a “stable genius,” but his words and actions manifestly prove thats he`s the polar opposite: an unstable fucking moron.

In fact, Trump is so unstable and volatile, and he relies only on his own counsel, that many fear that he might start a nuclear war if a foreign leader offends his tender sensibilities.

Fortunately, contrary to popular belief there is no red button that our lunatic commander-in-chief can press to usher in Armageddon. He can`t just push a button and nuclear-tipped missiles will fly to Moscow, Beijing, Ottawa or Paris. Cadet Bone Spurs can`t unilaterally launch a nuclear strike, he requires military personnel to carry out such an order.

However, the putative Leader of the Free World can start a nuclear war with a tweet. We must never forget that when tensions with North Korea were at a fever pitch he practically goaded Kim Jong-un into striking Guam with a missile.

The world may end, my friends, not because of geopolitical tensions between the Russian Federation and the United States or due to economic tensions between American and China – the world may end simply because Trump`s tiny fingers pecking away at the Twitter machine ticked-off a mad dictator with a nuclear arsenal.

Happy New Year!

Robert Paul Reyes: My New Year’s Resolution, Impeach Trump

Impeach Trump Now

Every year for about two decades I have posted my Top Ten New Year`s Resolutions online, and they are invariably self-centered: Lose weight, exercise, and give up certain unnamed vices.

At this critical juncture in America`s history, I have only one resolution, and it`s not self-centered, it concerns all of us: to fight for the impeachment and removal from office of Donald Trump.

I am more than willing to gain weight and forego exercise as I dedicate myself to my mission from God: get rid of Trump by any means necessary.

It`s fortuitous that my renewed desire to impeach Trump coincides with the Democrats gaining control of the House. The time is now, we can`t afford to wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller`s report is released to begin impeachment proceedings.

The unnecessary shutdown, the attacks on the independent judiciary, the vitriol showered on the free press, the politicization of the military, the demonization of black and brown immigrants, the assault on the rule of law, the degradation of social norms. Congress must act now. Impeach Trump.

I live on a fixed income, and I don`t have any discretionary income to support organizations committed to the impeachment of Trump, but I will use my writing talent, such as it is, to advocate for his impeachment.

When Will the Fashion Police Arrest Melania Trump?

Fashionista Melania

After months of being roundly criticized for not visiting American troops in a war zone, Donald Trump, with Melania in tow, made a surprise visit to Iraq December 26.

Trump treated his trip like a campaign stop, complete with a campaign stump speech full of lies and tomfoolery.

As usual Melania didn`t say or do anything of consequence, and as usual reporters had nothing to comment us besides her usual strange outfits.

Homegirl made quite an entrance when she descended from Air Force One wearing a green coat and skin-tight nude colored leather pants.

Thank God her hideous green coat covered her crotch area, the world was spared the sight of the Mother of All Camel Toes.

Forgive me, I apologize for being so disrespectful. I apologize to camels everywhere for comparing the first lady to them.

Donald Trump is a Coward

Cadet Bone Spurs

Donald Trump has always yearned to be the alpha dog, but it`s difficult to be the top dog when he`s been neutered by his cowardice.

He`s like a lap dog who barks ferociously when he`s safely ensconced in the lap of his owner, but cowers at the slightest sound when he`s by himself.

Trump earned worldwide fame as the head honcho in “The Apprentice,” in the make-believe world of reality TV he dispatched contestants with his trademark phrase: You`re Fired!

But in the real world the presidential poodle doesn`t have the gonads to fire anyone in person, he always delegates that unpleasant task to one of his subordinates.

In the presence of dictators with balls of steel like Russian President Vladimir Putin, Cadet Bone Spurs becomes obsequious and servile.

It took our fearless leader almost two years to summon up the courage to visit soldiers in a war zone, and he probably wouldn`t have made the trip to Iraq without his wife by his side holding his tiny hand.

Out commander-in-chief has frequently boasted that he was ready to serve during the Vietnam War, but he obtained a medical deferment to keep him from being drafted.

The New York Times recently reported that Trump was diagnosed with bone spurs by a podiatrist as a favor to Trump`s dad, who was his landlord.

Trump is such a sniveling coward that I`m betting that once the Mueller Report is released, and it shows there`s overwhelming evidence that he`s guilty of several felonies, including conspiring with Russia, he won`t have the stomach to fight impeachment and he will resign.

Cat Loves Riding Llama

Cats are Gods

“The lama serves its meowjesty, giving the insolent cat a ride during cold showy weather so the kitty doesn`t freeze its paws.”

Sputnik

Felines demand to be treated like royalty, they expect gourmet cat food, spotless litter boxes, and frequent petting. If we are properly servile and obsequious they might reward us with a meow or a purr.

But it turns out that cats treat all animals with disdain, this insolent kitty is riding on top of a llama during a snowy day so she won`t freeze her paws.

Some things never change, the ancient Egyptians considered cats deities, and we`re still treating them like gods.

Check out the video, I don`t detect an ounce of gratitude in the cat`s expression.

Melania Trump is as Mysterious as a Russian Topless Bartender at a Strip Club

Trophy Wife

If you ask me there`s no mystery about Melania Knauss, she`s a former nude model who struck faux gold when she married real estate magnate Donald Trump.

But her life before she became Trump`s third trophy wife is shrouded in mystery.

We know that soon after she stopped wearing a training bra she started her modeling career, but is she a college graduate?

We know that up until Trump`s shocking election victory her personal website claimed that she obtained a degree in design and architecture at an unnamed university in Slovenia.

We should take anything Melania says with a grain of salt, she`s as well acquainted with the truth as her husband.

The truth is that Melania dropped out of the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia after one year to dedicate herself to her nude modeling career. At least she didn`t claim that she graduated from Trump University, she may not be a college graduate but she`s not that dumb.

Melania was forced to update her site to read “paused her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris.” Another Trumpian lie, she never resumed her studies and there`s no proof that she ever sashayed down a catwalk in Paris or Milan.

It`s frequently reported that she`s fluent in five languages: Slovene, English, German, Serbian and French, but I bet that the only thing she can say in German, Serbian and French is “Yes, Mr. Millionaire I`d love to see your hotel room.” Think about it, she`s been in America for decades, but she speaks in broken English.

It`s obvious Melania isn`t a fluent English speaker, and she can barely write in English, which explains why she has a penchant for plagiarizing the speeches of Michelle Obama.

There is as much mystery to Melania as there is about your favorite Russian topless bartender at a strip club.
