Life versus Death in the United States in 2022

By InsightAnalytical-GRL

While contemplating the intersection of the GOP’s gun cult, racism, misogyny and “Christians” (see note below)…I came up with this thought:

“Pro-life” Means Valuing Guns More Than “Post-Born” Life

To quote George Carlin….

“Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to 9 months. After that, they don’t wanna know about you. They don’t wanna hear from you. No nothing! No neonatal care, no daycare, no Head Start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re pre-born, you’re fine, if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”

1996 HBO special, “Back In Town”


Hypocrisy at its height.

If George were alive today, he would add to the list the total lack of concern about kids being killed with guns, because the GOP as a corrupted, cynical, cruel party does not worship life…it worships guns, the NRA and political contributions and, above all, power. A few “Democrats” also fall into this group…but, by and large…it is the vile Republican Party that is destroying lives every day. Does the Republican Party ever really use its power to actually do good?

I’m not going to bore you with a look at the role of Trump, evangelical white nationalist “Christian” churches, sexual abuse in the Southern Baptist Convention or the Catholic Church, and witch-hunting “pastors.” Or quoting the unctuous Ted Cruz. But I will use the words of the Texas governor Greg Abbott as the prime example of how utterly debased/detached from humanity a person can be:

“I’m EMBARRASSED: Texas #2 in nation for new gun purchases, behind CALIFORNIA. Let’s pick up the pace Texans,” Abbott tweeted on October 28, 2015.

New York Daily News

The insults to my intelligence have been coming especially thick and fast lately. But the wounding of my soul has been ongoing as I’ve observed the decline of the American “experiment.” Frankly, America is failing. Just my opinion, but one that is valid.


“Christians” in the context of this post does not refer to the Christian faith as practiced by people who are not brainwashed into being part of the Trump/GOP cult of arrogance, racism and cruelty. I feel sorry for Jesus Christ. Would he condone the use of his name by these people?

Celebrity Endorsements and Other Annoyances

~~By kenosha Marge

I am always disappointed when an actor/actress whose work I particularly admire opens their mouth and says something stupid or endorses some political candidate I don’t like or shows themselves to be a religious nut cake. I never see their work the same way again.

Williamette, Oregon Weekly’s HILARIOUS/Scary Portrayal of Obama (UPDATED 3x and Now Just Plain SCARY)

UPDATE III (2/28/2009)

Unfortunately, the larger picture that I had created has disappeared. So, I’ve put the smaller picture in it’s place, just above the picture of Jesus.


Although not as large as the picture I had spread across my screen (which I foolishly didn’t save), this picture does show the cross on both of Obama’s hands and others on his chest….I’m suspecting they are actually showing the wounds on Christ’s body? Can this actually be so? There in an additional chest wound on the Obama image…but extra/out of place, the wound(s) are there and on the hands. And, there is also one indicated on the head, where the crown of thorns would be sitting. (See image of Christ’s Wounds below the Obama image.)

The Wounds of Christ


Williamette, Oregon Weekly’s HILARIOUS/Scary Portrayal of Obama

If you enlarge the picture you will see that Obama is carrying on object with what appears to be a “B” on it in his right hand (to the viewers left)…and on the same hand, there is a shining cross ! I kid you not!!! (I somehow had resized it to a full page via WordPress and it’s clear as bell…not so clear if you use another editing program, sad to say.)

Talk about a Messianic message…..EEK!

*******Original Post*******

This has got to be the most over the top portrayal of Obama that I have ever seen. You will either laugh like crazy…or be alarmed at how seriously cultish Obama acolytes have become!!! This makes me want to run FASTER and FURTHER away from this crowd!

Willamette Week offered this up to its readers as part of its endorsement of Obama.

Notice that the editorial, in closing, goes to the “character thing” instead of the issues.

But this isn’t really about specific issues. It’s about character, the ability to motivate, the skill to restore our position overseas and the wisdom to speak to us as adults about the challenges we face as, well, adults. Obama has demonstrated all of these talents during the campaign, and we’re throwing our lot in with him. We hope this state’s Democrats do so as well.

Sad, if the picture that accompanies this drivel weren’t so… funny… scary…both?
