The Budget Deal Is A Sin & Hell May Be Dead

Should astrophysicist Martin Rees have accepted the Templeton Prize he was awarded last week? || This is what blasphemy looks like: A group of French Catholics has defaced Serrano’s Piss Christ. || Nickelodeon premiered a new children’s TV show on Sunday, “Freedom to believe…or Not.” || The death of God is so over: Jon Meacham puts Rob Bell on the cover of Time and asks us, “Is Hell Dead?” (Read Revealer Becky Garrison’s take on the Bell & Piper show here. Watch Chris Matthews’ panel — with Andrew Sullivan, Norah O’Donnell, Joe Klein and Becky Quick — here.) || ”A professor of religious law at Benghazi’s Garyounis University, Osama el-Salladi, says that under the 41-year rule of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, religious institutions were as controlled as political life.” || A truck carrying 3,888 bibles was stolen outside Moscow this holy week. || Fraudulent churches, heal thyselves: Senator Chuck Grassley’s three-year investigation of church financial fraud has produced a commission (from the likes of Oral Roberts University President Mark Rutland, Campus Crusade for Christ President Stephen Douglass and megachurch pastors Joel Hunter and Bishop Kenneth Ulmer) but no charges of misconduct. || The presidential campaign to appear convincingly Christian is working. || Mega Churches have turned away from the bible and it’s all Peter Drucker’s fault. || Doomsday Capitalism! The 500-year cycle is coming to an end! || ”This budget deal is at least $1.1 billion sin against the poorest of this nation. And no one who voted for it deserves the appellation ‘pro-life.’“ SOURCE: Give Us This Day Our Daily Links « The Revealer: By Becky Garrison

Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

Romney is a terrible risk for young people

Mitt Romney garnered two graduate degrees at Harvard
He now favors policies that would deny a normal young person
the hope of going to any college period
He favors the Ryan Budget
This would cut higher education funding
while giving tax benefits (aka cuts) to the wealthiest
It is as if Cruella DeVille targeted young kids 
along with dalmations
Mitt Romney claims to be for the ordinary American
That is a bald-faced lie
There is not one idea in the Romney campaign
that would do anything but pulverize
the struggling middle class and penalize the poor
And we won't have to take it in November
We can vote for a President who has time and time again
taken the best ideas from both parties
and acted for the benefit of all Americans

The Romney Risk - Romney-Ryan Budget Cuts Head Start 20%

200,000 kids denied Head Start
Just some numbers to the GOP
The Romney-GOP risk breaks your heart
It risks our being all that we can be

How To Beat The Close Election Meme

We need to change the meme
from a close election
to Romney=Risk

The meme that can ensure the fact is Obama Wins is

Nothing more nothing less
We need an over-all approach
Something that pours all the weaknesses and crimes 
of the GOP
into a can that is labled DANGER
That is what the word risk connotes

Nate Silver needs to observe that
Stephanie Cutter and her people
Are finally saying this is risky behavior
Risk is the central reality
This is what will change the meme 
from close election
to Big Obama Win 

Those who think 
this is going to be a walk in the part
Should think again
