Anywhoo, to check out the rest of the world for a minute, I see that the other JFK and O are catching a lot of heat from Neocons, ("abject surrender"? WTF?) the right, the leader of Israel, and every Lamborghini driving Sunni in the Gulf Oil States for the nuke deal that was just forged with Iran.
OK, I guess I understand why they are pissed. They don't want that Shiite ideology creeping into their borders. The Israelis, well, they just don't want to be nuked off the face of the earth. Although I suspect that if this deal was cut under a conservative president Benji would have been cool with it.
Fortunately, though, Americans know a good thing when they see it, and by a 2-1 margin they approve of the other JFK's deal with the Iranians. It seems that everyone--- except the war hawks and Neocons--- want to give peace a chance.
Finally, I never thought I would be saying this, but I have to show some love to this Pope Francis dude. It seems that my man's political ideology is somewhat in sync with mine.
He ripped "trickle- down economics", the greed of capitalism, and their treatment of the poor. I hope that the right wing politicians in Washington were paying attention. This guy could never get elected in a red state.
It's simple; capitalism left unchecked will lead to income inequality, and if this trend continues Americans will not like the country they see in the next 25 years.
'Just as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’ sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say ‘thou shalt not’ to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills,'
'How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure but it is news when the stock market loses two points?”'
Father, it's not exactly "new tyranny", it's been around a very long time.
As we get ready to knock each other out in Wal-Mart to save $50 on an xBox, it would pay to keep the Pope's words in mind.
