In congress, it's bible vs bible

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

During contentious debate over the Farm Bill, which funds food stamps, in the House Agriculture Committee, Rep. Juan Vargas, D-Calif., invoked the Book of Matthew as he noted his opposition to the cuts.

[Jesus] says how you treat the least among us, the least of our brothers, thats how you treat him, Vargas, adding that Jesus specifically mentions the importance of feeding the hungry.

Republican Congressman Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, who supports cuts to the program, had his own Bible verse from the Book of Thessalonians to quote back to Vargas: The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat, he said.

Watch out children, the elderly, the poor, unemployed, wounded warriors, mentally and the physically challenged. The Republican's are sick and tired of your dead weight ruining this great country! Freaking commies want to eat? Really?

Can't you all just die and stop being a burden on those good folks in DC?

There should be a law against any quotes from any "bibles". I can find one to justify murder...so you can see the utter hypocrisy.

They get dumber every year in that inept east coast swamp.

I realize Washington D.C. is on the east coast (good catch, btw!) but in its role as the seat of our federal government, it's really no more an east coast city than it is a west coast city. Your state gets 2 senators there just like mine does. Your state gets a number of congressional seats in proportion to national population just like mine does.

I'm refering to both parties in any case.

Every election we vote in the new boss, same as the old boss. The result is new slogans, same old problems.

The need to get rid of the money in the game...it is the root of all evil; well besides my ex-wife that is...lol

You forgot the working poor - those not only willing to work but actally working. They make up about a third of the SNAP beneficiaries. Republicans have simply divorced themselves from reality. That's all that is.

You were referring to the east coast, not any party.

You realize that DC was built on a swamp that was drained right? I thought most people knew that...my appologies if you though it was a dig on the east coast...it was not.

That's what I was refering to.

They need to realize that "Atlas Shrugged" was a fictional novel and a bad movie.

In their utopian society it would be more like the film "Soylent Green" where they feed the dead back to the living.

I'm sure that meets the current conservative agenda.

A fictional novel written by an author who actually treated herself to the spoils of socialism in her later days. And they take that work of fiction by an author that couldn't live up to it as gospel. That's how mentally retarded they are.
