Hey you light bulb headed son of a bitch! No fucking war in Syria! I don’t know about your rich corporate purchased ass, but $16 Trillion in debt is quite enough thank you! You pack of ravenous wolf assholes sit by while trading with countries that traffic human beings right under your nose, send us food that requires no inspection, work children in sweat shops and ship out pet food with arsenic in it. The only reason that you want to go into Syria is for some corporate or political benefit!
The bold truth is that it is not moral to destroy our country by playing world policeman! More children die in third world nations in a week than have died in the two years of Syrian civil conflict, so why all of a sudden is war on the table? Come on! Give us a patented Obamalama “It’s the right thing to do.” answer! Go ahead! I would like to hear this self-serving lie! The U.S hasn’t recovered from the recession, there are a record number of American children going hungry and being beaten to death by abusive parents. I’m just wondering when your self righteous ass is gonna spend a little of MY money taking care of problems in MY country? Maybe use some of the money allotted to the NSA for solving some problems instead of letting them use it to watch me slap the salami in my own bathroom? Hows about donating your enormous head to science so that they can turn it into a huge light bulb? They could even use that huge melon of yours to house a family of five! The religious right(wrong), wants this because they don’t care about anything but right wing bullshit AND they believe that their gawd wants us to kill non believers at all costs(Muslims). Also, these idiots actually claim to speak to something that can’t be heard or seen! Psycooooo!
Don’t get me wrong, I hated your predecessor as well! He was just a tractable dumb legacy kid who would have failed the entrance exam to Bubba’s Cookin’ Cawlidge. The Demoncrats AND the Republotards are all bought and paid for and only have their own corporate interests in mind. Lawyers, lawyers, fucking scumbag lawyers all of them! As long as scumbag lawyers control the nation, we will never have a system of fairness and democracy. If you have to spend a kings ransom to secure decent representation then the injustice system is broken, so why would you trust a stinking lawyer to tell you the truth on Syria?! Anyway, think about it very carefully. Bush lied about Iraq and all of you were sorry, what is different about this one? Also, Saddam gassed the Kurds and America was aware and just sat by and did nothing! Things haven’t changed, Obama just sees an angle for his corporate masters! I will go now and speak out again later. Thank you friends. I don’t write this because I don’t care about the children, I write because the Hope & Change asshole is blowing smoke about the real agenda behind his wanting to destroy the nation financially by getting into another never ending conflict. Lies, lies, lies yeah!
It seems to me that the pursuit of one’s self interests is the founding principle of activity of all sentient beings. In fact, I would postulate that each person’s life is a continuous quest for one’s personal interests. And there is nothing wrong with such. In fact, it is simply the nature of nature if you will. No one chooses to do anything unless they truly believe it is in their best interests. That is not to say that each choice actually is in one’s best interests, that is merely to say that every person seeks their own interests with each and every decision.
Even submission and sacrifice for another is founded upon the pursuit of one’s own self interests. When a person agrees to watch a TV show that they do not care for in deference to the personal tastes of another, they likely do so because they feel that decision is in their own best interests. If for no other reason than to keep the peace, such is an effort towards one’s own personal interests.
Christians who “submit to” and “surrender” their life to Christ do so in pursuit of their own best interests. Since they truly believe that there is a “Heaven” and a “Hell”, then they choose to go to “Heaven” as a matter of seeking their own best interests throughout all eternity. In fact, were there really an afterlife with an either/or choice of Heaven or Hell, by all means the only logical choice would be to choose Heaven if for no other reason than to avoid Hell. Hence, Christianity is a prime example of an ideology based upon seeking one’s own best interests.
The pursuit of one’s best interests then being the quest by which we deliberate and make our every decision, then it seems to me that any individual’s morals and ethics are established within that context. The “best” of people live decent, clean, law abiding lives in pursuit of their own best interests. And, such a life likely is the most reasonable course as one seeks their own best interests.
Yet ultimately each person must choose and decide for themselves precisely what is in their own self interests. Such is life, and such is living. Or so it seems to me.
Ask a christian what they believe will happen to you when you die if you don’t believe in or worship their god. When they finally state that you will go to hell, ask them if they think that you should be tortured for eternity for simply not believing what they believe.
Finish off by mentioning that after only having known them for a few minutes, they seem quite OK with the notion that you will suffer in agony forever, regardless of the good you have done during your entire life.
Ask them how they can ever expect you to be their friend or trust them.
When I first read that, atheist though I am, I found it quite shocking. Mainly because I hadn’t thought about its inevitable conclusion much before.
But now that I think about it, I realize that I am always wary of people who profess to be christians. Maybe subconsciously this is the reason.
This is so amazingly true and accurate. My wife’s best friend once said that the reason the Native Americans fell into poverty was because they worshiped false gods and were punished for doing so. My wife said to her friend that that statement had to be one of the most ignorant, close-minded things that she had heard to date!

I have taken a small sabbatical from posting because my daughter spilled juice on my computer and it’s toast! I am here at work posting with limited time but at least I’m able to lend to the chaos that is having a strong opinion. The good news is that marriage equality is gaining good ground every day and the NSA is keeping us really safe by watching us masturbate! We wouldn’t want those goddamned terrorists assembling bombs on OUR dick-beating time now would we? The debate on Syria has taken a different turn with our staunch ally Great Britain saying, “Cheerio you stupid fucks, hows about you bankrupt yourselves going to war with yet ANOTHER bunch of assholes who hate us!’ Outstanding! I say, let us send them our street bums in the form of Soylent Green and concentrate our money over here on at least attempting to solve one whole domestic problem! We have several unfinished ones that we never seem to use total concentration on before we move onto the next one that we will leave hanging. The light bulb headed idiot in the White House has issued a statement that the right thing to do is to initiate yet ANOTHER ill-conceived strike on yet ANOTHER Middle Eastern nation resulting in yet ANOTHER financial downturn for the people that actually support this country, the middle class! But take heart citizens, the super rich will war profiteer off of this one too and you will receive only bullshit rhetoric from the AIC ( Assholes in Charge ). Why just a little while ago Halliburton was fleecing our own soldiers for poor to non-existent services and overcharging the Gub for fuel! Ahhh, the memories!
Well, saddle up America! You’re the ones sitting back and letting this shit happen and just voting in the next mouthpiece for the rich, so enjoy the ride while Souros, the Koch brothers, Eric Prince and a long list of other evil assholes gobble up your money and trash your economy once more!
Kids here are going hungry as we spend millions of tax dollars helping ungrateful nations and giving welfare to idiots that will never find their way in life. We spend millions doing surgery on idiot drug addicts and other reprobates so that they can go right back on the street and use again. The choice should go to those that are in real need and those who don’t need should be given the shine! The people of this country need to get their collective heads out of their collective fat asses and get some real values back! There are children dying in every third world nation across the globe, but we need to bomb Syria to save the most publicized ones?! Get real! I had some ignorant lemming compare us not going to war with Syria like hesitating to save Europe from Hitler! Really?! The social PC pressure is on to completely back the insane decisions of Obama The Christ and leave common sense in the dust. Sorry, the people in the Middle East will be killing each other for years to come AFTER the Syrian conflict is a distant memory in everyone’s eyes because that is the way of fanatical religion and despotic dictatorships!
I, for one, am totally against this insanity unless we go over and bulldoze the whole thing and put up hotels and 7-11s to compensate for the lost funds footed by the middle class. I will now end this rant before I go totally overboard and turn to attacking welfare idiots again. Thanks again to the unfaithful for tuning in again to my never ending angst!
