The Republicans have been holding hearings on groundbreaking issues that will get this economy back in running order, *snark*. After the assault on abortion and the redefinition of when "life" occurs, Congress has decided to pick up the banner of declaring our National Motto so that the entire planet can know just how stupid our elected government officials truly are.
The House on Tuesday passed a non-binding resolution reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the national motto. THIS? This is what Republican
The measure sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., supports and encourages the motto's display in all public schools and government buildings. It was approved 396-9, with 2 abstentions.
Forbes said the resolution was needed because President Obama had once called "E Pluribus Unum" the national motto, and the Latin phrase meaning "from many one" was engraved in the new Capitol Visitors Center until Congress ordered that it be corrected. Yeah, that is a terrible sentiment that we are "one nation" that must stand together in times of adversity. The message is only appropriate during 9/11 memorials or other National tragedies used for political gain. Fascism in America will come wrapped in the flag in the shadow of the cross and once again these people are going full steam ahead with this foolishness. While officially, E Pluribus Unum isn't our national motto, again, it's not that big a deal where a "resolution" has to be taken and a grand pandering gesture taken to manipulate the dumbest among us.
Category 5 Moron Michele Bachmann and other members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus piled on weeks later, penning a letter to Obama chastising him for his alleged failure to the use the word "God" and "Creator" more in his public speeches, especially abroad. How about she uses more words than "Obamacare" and "one term president". Well, she will be a no term president and may be she can pray the gay out of her husband. Rule of thumb: POLITICIANS THAT TALK ABOUT GOD ALL THE TIME ARE FAKES. RELIGION BELONGS IN CHURCH NOT IN GOVERNMENT. Sitting in a church pew doesn't make you anymore a christian than me sitting me in a garage makes me a car.
Boy, I'm really glad they got THAT accomplish
I wonder how many legislator man-hours that consumed?
It's as if they think that by these shallow acts that they will somehow get brownie points in when they get judged, even if they continuously vote to harm the socially weak, elderly, poor, pretty much everyone the Bible stated that Jesus tried to help. The founding fathers were explicit in their desire for the United States to be a secular nation. They work in the capital, how this is missed on them is beyond me. If you can claim to be religious then you don't have to actually be religious, that's the GOP motto.
In which god do we trust? Here are some candidates
* Yum Caax
* Ron Hubbard
*The Flying Spaghetti Monster
Of course, we all know that the right-wing house means the christian god, to the exclusion of all others.
Since the First Amendment prohibits a state religion, congress cannot dictate which god "we" believe in. This right-wing resolution is an affront to the many good, moral Americans who have no religion at all and at this point, they are more palatable to deal with than these insufferable ass clowns that want to start a theocracy/ dictatorship so long as they're the dictator and they have the "right" religion.
How many jobs did this lame brain resolution create? When did God become a job creator? According to the Bible, Quran, and most religious texts (depending on the church you go to), Jesus was a liberal, bleeding heart, dead beat, who was a convicted criminal and was executed after a fair trial. He was poor because he deserved to be poor, he only hung out with guys, so he more than likely was gay, or he got busy with a whore and had a secret family. Theories abound...
