Tim Wildmon is working very hard to try to get President Obama defeated in the 2012 election. But, it’s really nothing new. In 2007-2008 Wildmon and Editor Joe Rutherford of the Tupelo Daily Journal prepared a document bashing Obama over some right-wing nonsense. I obtained a copy of it for Obama’s next election in 2012. Stay tuned! – AB
"OBAMA IS BACK"
By Robert Reich, HP, 10/17/12, Re-posted by Abratt, 10/18/12
"Tuesday night our president was articulate and forceful -- in sharp contrast to his performance in the first presidential debate. He stated his beliefs. He defended his record. He told America where he wanted to take the nation in his second term."
"And he explained where Romney wanted to take us."
"The President was surgical in his dissection of Romney's rambling, repetitive, and pointless arguments. Romney found himself in the worst possible situation. He was facing a President who knew what he was talking about from his record, while Romney's record is one of flip flops/course changes/ misdirection/distortions and outright lies. Romney's numbers simply do not add up and hopefully the American voters" Read More

Reader Comment: [So True of The Religious-Right]
“Ironically, the Fallwell, Dodson, Robertson generation in their panic to preserve their version of christianity have done more damage to the faith than any of its enemies. They were really culture warriors raging against their loss of power and privilage with civil rights, women's liberation and sexual freedom and using religion as the fig leaf to justify their agenda.
The central message of Jesus is love, acceptance, service, sacrifice and reconciliation with God and each other. But Dodson and company shoved that message into the closet and replaced it with judgement, hate and control, wielding the republican party like a club to try and force people back into a 1950's world that never was.
You now have a couple generations who have grown up thinking christianity is just a hateful political movement.
There is a reason Jesus taught that Ceasar and God were distinct and seperate realms. The unholy marriage between the GOP and Christian extremist have dragged faith into the mud pit of racist, mysoginistic, xenophobic and homophobic politics. Its time for all Christians to wash off the mud of politics and return to faith and service.”
"This really is no mystery. More and more people, and especially young people, look at organized religion, and they see the very things that the churches supposedly preach AGAINST. They see hypocrisy, they see discrimination, they see a 'holier than thou' attitude, and most of all they see a tremendous and obvious lack of love, caring, and compassion on the part of both the members and the leaders, but especially the leaders. This is why I left organized religion decades ago."
"Today's mainstream religious leaders, and especially the Fundamentalists, like Taliban Tim Wildmon, have totally perverted the message that Jesus taught and the example He set. Jesus didn't castigate the ones considered the worst sinners and dregs of society; instead He called on them to be His disciples and His followers. Jesus understood their problems and their frailties, and their circumstances, and while He reproved their sins, He made it clear that He loved them."
"Religious leaders today know only Fire and Brimstone, condemnation, and they have involved themselves in politics to achieve their religious goals, use scare tactics to fleece their followers of their money, preach intolerance of those they disagree with, and all the while they themselves are the biggest sinners of them all."

..."To the Fundies, hate is far more vital to their survival than faith in Christ or upholding His Gospel. After all, you can't make money from the Gospel, but you can make a lot of money from hate."...

"Liberals were the patriots who fought an won the American Revolution. Conservatives were the tories who supported aristocracy and the King of England. FDR fought against the 'economic royalists' who caused the Great Depression and were a threat to the American Dream. Now history repeats. A group of super-rich who believe they are 'American royalty' caused the Great Recession and are trying to get Romney/Ryan elected. Read the novel 'American Royalty' by Janet G. Miller to see who they are, their destructive beliefs and their 'hidden' deceptive actions that try to destroy the American Dream and the very essence of democracy with defacto laws (not passed by Congress but enacted by judges) such as Citizens United. Since 'American royalty' took control of the GOP, the GOP loves big new laws, court decisions and regulations that are unfair to everyone other than 'American royalty'. And they want to amend the Constitution that they frequently use to justify their actions. That's just a step to take us back to a government run by aristocrats like we had before 1776."

Maybe Disqus bought the Journal out?
What was wrong with the former simple to operate comment program?
Disqus now tells me that I have to install a certain browser on my computer before I will be allowed to comment. Some people, me included, have to use whatever they already have on their computers without installing one that can cost up to $200 or one in particular they suggest using that is free but I learned some time ago not to use a free browser no matter how swift and accurate the mfg. claims it to be. One browser I tried previously caused me a lot PROBLEMS with my computer. And. I'm still having them.
Disqus also tells me that I have to have a following on Twitter or Face Book to be eligible to comment on the Daily Journal web site. No other web site has ever told me such nonsense.
It all sounds strange to me. Suddenly I and maybe some others are being disallowed their rights of free speech.

"Scott Des Jarlais, Pro-Life Republican Congressman & Doctor, Pressured Mistress To Get Abortion"
HP, 10/10/2012, Re-posted by ABratt, 10/10/2012
WASHINGTON -- "A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post."
