Our local paper (it's more of a pamphlet) has a feature where citizens can call into a phone number and leave a short message on a topic to be printed in a specific section. Well, our town is full of right-wing nut jobs (although there are some of us liberals who are dedicated to shaking them up) who call in with these inane statements.
Case in point, this clown was saying in his/her comment today that our worthless Representative Marilyn Musgrave (think a female version of Bush) who voted against the children's health care bill was right. This commenter is one of these assholes who doesn't want to help pay for anything other then what affects his life. Anyway, the part that triggered an early morning, profanity laden rant from me was his/her following statement which said that we should pray to "God" if we want a better job and benefits!!!
Well, forgive me if I don't feel too confident in a "faith based" economic policy. And isn't it ironic that these right-wing fundies feel that paying their fair share in taxes is tantamount to being ripped off but they'll turn around on Sunday and shell out all kinds of money to their shake down artist "pastors??" If "God" is supposed to give us a good job with good benefits through prayer then why does he need money?!! So you mean to tell me that "God" has the power to give you a cushy job but can't fund his own operation?? Someone so inconsistent on fiduciary matters isn't qualified in my book to be "President of the Universe." How come with all of his power he can't print up some money but instead needs to bum some money from his kids. No let me see, isn't that the definition of a dead beat dad? I think so.
This country never ceases to amaze and infuriate me.
