The Love of Money
When greed and selfishness becomes the norm we must stop and reevaluate the reasons why. We do not have to look far to find our answer, the airways are filled with get rich quick schemes, the media is full of messages tell about taking care of number one and we hear politicians playing on peoples fears and greed telling them,” it’s your money!” Then somebody asked,”Why has America seen such a moral decay?” This simple, it’s because of the love of money.

The Rich Really Are Different
The rich, those born sucking silver spoons like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, really are different from the middle class. The wealthy grow up and live their lives wrapped in security. That’s what gives them the arrogance to organize a posse to hold down a fellow prep school student and chop off his hair, mock NASCAR fans’ clothes and ridicule cookies offered by supporters. No matter what, Romney and Ryan will remain rich and secure.

This year, citizens of the United States of America will exercise one of the most fundamental rights of our democracy—choosing through free and fair elections those who will govern us at local, state and national levels. The right to choose our leaders is a precious one. In the course of our nation’s history, thousands of brave men and women have shed their blood and laid down their lives to provide and protect this freedom. Oppressed people in many nations across the globe can only dream of enjoying such a privilege. We must never take it for granted. Liberty, though purchased by sacrifice, is forfeited by complacency.

As much as we cherish our democracy, however, the most important choice every person must make in life is not a political one, but a spiritual one. (We are discussing this on two threads, please join us by clicking here.

This article is titled, “What is an Evangelical? An Overview” Most people know evangelicalism only through the big, bellicose voices of TV preachers and religio-political activists such as Pat Robertson, the late Jerry Falwell and James Dobson. Not surprisingly, my friends hadn’t experienced an evangelicalism that sounded particularly loving, accepting or open-minded.

After eschewing the descriptor because I hadn’t wanted to be associated with a faith tradition known more for harsh judgmentalism and fearmongering than the revolutionary love and freedom that Jesus taught, I began publicly referring to myself again as an evangelical. By speaking up, I hoped I might help reclaim “evangelical” for what it is supposed to mean.

In these trying times when life can seem so heavy, when joy seems as a forgot time memory, when life is little more than a burden there is hope. This world can wear you out, money can seems so little, the demands for your time so great that it begins to seem maddening and we wonder what is the use of it all? This Faith video “Take My yoke” is based on what Jesus said, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

This article “Hate Kills” In a cartoon drawing Sean Delonas made his hate message of assassination clear. What should be alarming to everyone is the thought of assassination, which is the real implication of the cartoon. The projecting of this type of hatred violates everything that this Nation was founded on. It is such hateful propaganda which has lead to the shooting at Churches and of elected officials. What we must remember is that regardless of political bias, hate begets hate, we are a better nation than this.

This Video article “Fears and Victory” Since the fall of man evil, selfish men have brought misery upon the world. Though the ages they have enslaved many by force or fear. Through fear they can control people and enslave them. Today the story is the same and we often feel hopeless. We pray for, work for and fight for change, only to be faced with more of the same. Maybe things really are changing for the better and we do not see it because of evil men shirring up fear. It really does not matter if these fears are real or imaginary, the affect is the same. I do not wish to address any particular issue which might provoke such fears; instead I want to focus on how we handle these fears. I have put together this video of Psalms 37 which I have found to be a real help. If I were to pick out one passage it would be this, for it speaks of how God always takes care of those who put their full trust in Him.

Another Racial Hate Crime that cost the Teenager, Trayvon Martin his Life.
The radicalism has lead to this type of hate crimes. Here you have an innocent teen walking through a neighborhood shot down. I know that the reactionary people will claim that I’m using the race card, but they say that just to cover the very racism that I’m talking about. Maybe this is just my opinion, I feel that many of these people who hate President Obama so much would secretly or not so secretly wish this was a White Only Nation. How can anyone justify the murdering of a teenager whose only crime was being Black?

Article “Conservatives Confused as State Minimum Wage Attacks Fail
Legislators in Arizona conceded defeat this week in an attempt to gut the state’s minimum wage law. House Majority Leader Steve Court admitted that the law, enacted in a landslide 2006 ballot initiative with 65% of the vote, is still unassailable. Court’s decision wraps up a rough couple of months for legislators and lobbyists intent on rolling back minimum wage laws.

First, presidential candidate Willard Mitt Romney went off-script for over a month strongly supporting annual increases in the minimum wage, and inadvertently lending support to measures to raise the minimum wage in at least fifteen states. After conservative leaders succeeded in pressuring Romney to retract his position, the candidate’s statements have lacked conviction and consistency.  Post your comments at http://www.free-fire-zone.com…

SOPA Opera: Which Legislators Support SOPA and PIPA?

In the next few weeks, among the most talked-about legislation will be the Stop Online Piracy Act — commonly referred to as SOPA — which, if passed, would give the Justice Department the authority to block access to foreign websites deemed to be dedicated to copyright infringement.

Both SOPA and its Senate version, PIPA (officially known as the PROTECT-IP Act), have widespread bipartisan support among lawmakers. But the proposed law has become a pitched battle between entertainment companies — who believe SOPA will curb the illegal distribution of movies and music — and online media companies like Google and Facebook, who fear that the bills will be burdensome to implement and are tantamount to censorship.  Post your comments on this thread

This article “Republicans and Corporate Democrats, You Will Lose!” This is the beginning of a revolution the beginning of
a change in our society, this is a rebirth of the progressive movement
which will change our society in ways you cannot imagine. As
you will see in this video, Wall Street’s guard dogs attack innocent
protesters, but it is the police who were forced to turn tail and
run. This is the future for all who oppose the what
the 99% of Americans need.

This is the “White House Press Briefing” conducted most weekdays from the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the West Wing. January 18, 2012. The President’s rejection of the dangerous Keystone sands pipeline is what the reporters are most interested in. This is impressive considering the treats from big oil. The interesting thing is that this pipeline will not add to our oil supply. It’s only purpose is to process gasoline to be exported. Why when gas prices are still so high would we export any gasoline?

There is no excuse for the pepper spraying of an
84 year old woman, whose only mistake was being in the wrong place at the wrong
time. The problem goes back some 15 years, when there was a move to militarize
the police forces. Our police departments are not occupying armies, but rather
fellow citizens who have taken oaths to serve and protect their fellow citizens.
The occupying movement has shown one thing very clearly, those controlling our
government are not interested in the will of the people but rather in what that
richest 1% wants. It is about time we put America back in the hands of all
Americans.
