Slouching Towards Loserdom

Kathy Shaidle all 'Five Feet of Fury' churning in her poor mind gives compassion brand new meaning:
Today's "poor" are the rich Jesus warned you about: fat, slovenly, wasteful of their money and other people's.
Up is down. Poor is rich. 1984 is 2009.

God bless you Ms. Shaidle, and godspeed with your Truth.

It is easier for a bicycle to go through the eye of a sidewalk, than for a "poor" man with a cellphone eating risotto with brocolli (and, most likely, tattoos and drugs and booze and other crap) to enter into the kingdom of God.

This is the disconnect we are dealing with in politics these days. Whether all of this is sincerely believed, or whether it's some kind of goof, doesn't really matter. It's the game of ends justifying the means. Actually, it may be worse than that. If the wisdom of Jesus and Buddha and Lao Tzu and Shankara and all and one point to the political truth of Gandhi and his means and only means action, then this kind of politics points to ends and only ends.

There's a reason why, to quote our last President, this sucker is going down, and Kathy and her ilk, be it Dems or GOP, are it. The Politics of the Ends. Means be damned, mocked, and ignored.
