It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character." Joseph Heller, Catch-2 22 Dianne Wing' b

They hypocrite christoids ask this question:

Why are WE bending over backwards to make illegals comfortable with accomodations, food, medicines, etc., when we have homeless veterans and other Americans here?

Answer: Because the savior you worship said to. That's why. Jesus said nothing about taking care of only people within your borders. The person who wrote that knows nothing about Christianity and everything about being a selfish racist. This countryis wealthy enough to take care of the sick, the homeless, the stranger, and the orphan. I'm sick of reading shit like this from people who pretend to be Christians and Ameriacans. They're neither.

New Testament:

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." Matthew 25:35


"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed." Luke 4:18

"But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind." Luke 14:1

"On the contrary: If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.'" Romans 12:20

Bible... well put.

Interesting that the person who said that asked a question about Mexican immigration, but the only person she knows who can actually answer that question is banned from commenting there. Because he doesn't agree with her stance and "biblical" theology.

Here's something else Shaw...

Remember when conservatives hated Pres Obama because he was supposedly self centered self promoting? Check out this statement from Pres Trump discussing his trip to Japan...

“With all the countries of the world, I’m the guest of honor at the biggest event that they’ve had in over 200 years,”

No self promotion, bragging or hubris there is there?

Wow, seems it really irks you folks that the Japanese admire and respect Trump. Really small on your part.

Anon, my husband worked for a Japanese electronic company for 20 years. I know a thing or two about Japanese manners. I know when they are sincere and when they are performing as a matter of protocol. trump is famous for his unquenching need to be flattered for his foolishness. And the Japanese know how to cater to that need.

Small? No. What's small, mean, and unAmerican is what DJT did while in a foreign country during our Memorial Day. trump besmirched an American statesman and praised a murderous Communist tyrant.

Only a disgusting nitwit would behave in such a rotten manner. But I repeat myself.
