But don’t fret none– All roads lead to that ‘Come to Jesus’ moment sooner or later, so, one way or ‘nother, be awight.
Murka has done took a wrong turn. Probably started when she genocided the natives. Got even worse when she decided to enslave the Africans. Got a whole hell lot worse when she took Mammon as her God. Actually, that may be where the whole thing starting going off the rails in the first place. Don’t believe the hype, Murka never was a Christian nation. She has always worshipped Mommon with all her heart, mind and soul. From the very beginning. Remember Thomas Jefferson said a lot of sweet words about ‘liberty’ and ‘being endowed with inalienable rights by our creator’ but he said all those things after the genocide of the natives had already begun, and while he personally owned human beings as property himself– so take it all with a grain of salt.
The most recent wrong turn started back in 1981, I imagine. The Reagan Revolution was nothing more than a smiley face first step towards modern Economic Brutalism. And now, Bam! Here We Are. Getting ready to meet Jesus himself. And not the fake blue-eyed, lie-version either.
Give ya a little ‘par exemple’: During a George W. Bush town hall meeting (of friendly Republican voters) in 2003, a woman told Bush she was a single mother who worked three jobs. Bush told her she was a good American. He should have said, “Good serf.” George Bush never worked three jobs at once in his life. Probably never really worked one. But George Bush and the elite types think you should work real hard. Work yourself to death would be good. It’s the Christian, American thing to do.
Only Jesus, the guy from Nazareth, he may, may, have worked as a carpenter at some point, but when he got his mind blown by the light he swore off any and all serf work. The guy never worked a straight job again. He wandered around talking about the kingdom of heaven, and cursing preachers and trees, and making things happen with his words. That’s it. No toiling long hours in a coal mine or working three jobs. No being a serf to any man or giant corporation. No sir, in fact this is what he said about that vile lie that the GOPers love to spread:
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?– Matthew 6:26
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?– Luke 12:27
Why is that important? It’s just one of the many wrong way lies the economic brutalists have been pushing. Living wage? Ha! That ain’t Murkan. You’ll take what your masters give you and like it. They’re going to keep taking more. And more. And giving you and yours less and less. The tipping point will come. It ain’t far off by my lights.
Yep, Murka has done took a wrong turn. Bad like. Around here we intend to fight to bring her onto a sane path, but it will take a real come to Jesus, because we need to seriously re-think everything, the whole enchilada. As long as any of us think that any other of us are not worthy of any of the privileges and rights that we enjoy; as long as most everything we do is driven by profit, by how much we can get or take, which is the cardinal rule of Mammon worship– then, we are doomed.
We are going to have a come to Jesus moment, one way or another. It will either be because we have thought, prayed and meditated about it all and have decided to do the sane, right thing– or it will be because the fiery train wreck that our foolishness has caused leaves us no other option. Again: around here we will be fighting for the former. But win, lose or draw it’s a comin’. Oh, it’s a comin’. And either way we are tickled pink at the thought.
