Can a controversial Latin American theology speak to Catholics today?

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (RNS) For Catholics, the key to working collaboratively with Pope Francis on issues from mass migration to climate change to Hispanic evangelization may be found in a controversial movement that many left for dead long ago: liberation theology.

That message reverberated this week through the halls of Boston College and a nearby retreat center as nearly 40 theologians gathered from across the Spanish-speaking world to discuss the movement’s future with its founding figures.

By championing God’s “preferential option for the poor,” liberation theology, which emerged as a force in the 1960s and 1970s, has deeply shaped the pontiff’s worldview, participants said. Now it can help the church see the poor as Francis sees them: as revealers of Jesus.

“This theology of liberation … the church was threatened by it in many ways, and for quite some time it was under suspicion,” said Thomas Groome, director of The Church in the 21st Century Center at Boston College. “But now it has come to center stage. It’s almost like the stone which the builders had first rejected has now become the cornerstone, especially in Pope Francis.”

Those gathered for the Ibero-American Conference of Theology spoke with firsthand authority about both the movement and the pope who embraced it while a seminarian and priest in Argentina. Among them was one of the founders, the Rev. Gustavo Gutierrez, whose parish ministry among Lima’s poorest gave rise to his seminal 1973 book, “A Theology of Liberation.”

The Rev. Juan Carlos Scannone, the philosophy of liberation founder who taught Francis (then Jorge Mario Bergoglio) in seminary, recalled their student-teacher relationship before an audience of 250 in Robsham Theater. He told how Bergoglio warned him to never walk by himself because the Argentine military saw all liberationists as ideological enemies to be “disappeared.”

“For the military, we were all Marxists,” Scannone said. But in fact, he added, “I did not agree with the Marxist socio-political analysis.”

The meeting offered a venue to dispel myths and reclaim essentials. Liberation theology is neither a Marxist movement nor an anti-capitalist one, Scannone told RNS through a translator.

In Latin America, while some adherents have been involved in revolutionary Marxist projects, that’s been just one strain in a multifaceted theological tradition, according to Boston College theologian Hosffman Ospino.

“What’s really important for both liberation theology and liberation philosophy is reading the signs of the times,” Scannone said. “That’s why it’s essential that this philosophy, this theology, change ­— because the circumstances change and the world changes.”

By distancing the movement from radical left agendas of the past, theologians today are carving room for new applications of liberationist thought. How the poor struggle today is different from the trials they suffered under Latin American dictatorships of the 1970s and ’80s, they noted. They see liberation theology providing a framework to pursue justice in new forms and fulfill the church’s potential.

Borders, for example, have become a hot topic as refugees flock to Europe by the millions and President Trump takes steps to keep migrants out of the United States.

Boston College theologian Roberto Goizueta called for a redefinition of “American” to include all people of the Americas. Seeing migrants through fresh liberationist eyes, he explained, is to see them not as intruding foreigners but as ambassadors of Christ.

“When we move out to encounter and to befriend the poor, we come eventually to see ourselves evangelized by the poor,” Goizueta said.

This week’s revisiting of liberationist thought comes as the Catholic Church vies to renew ties with Hispanics. Organizers hope the renewed focus can help bridge widening gaps between Hispanic communities and the church of their parents and grandparents.

In the United States, only 55 percent of Hispanics were Catholics in 2013, down from 67 percent just three years earlier, according to the Pew Research Center.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, where 89 percent of Hispanics were Catholics in 1970, today 80 percent are Catholics, according to data from the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Conference co-organizer Rafael Luciani said Hispanics often don’t feel like full members of Catholic parishes in the United States, even though Spanish is the most-used language among Catholics worldwide. Even congregations that offer Masses in Spanish often don’t go beyond the liturgy to weave Hispanics into the faith community’s fabric.

“That’s our concern: we push people out instead of welcoming them,” said Luciani, a Boston College theologian. “Then we say that they went out, but we’re not creating the spaces of integration and welcoming that they deserve.”

The conference was rare in several respects. All workshops were conducted in Spanish, the native tongue of most participants, who came from South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Spain and the United States. Rather than deliver lectures, participants focused on small-group dialogues, or “encounters.”

In past decades, Ospino observed, anti-American sentiment would have likely led to sparse turnout among Latin American scholars at a U.S. event, but this one marked a new openness to cross-border collaboration within the church.

Participants came away with new regard for Francis’ worldview and how their understandings of Christian mission might dovetail with his. Scannone told the audience how Francis sees the community not as a sphere, which is “uniform and everything depends on the center,” but rather as a polyhedron, a solid figure with many plane faces.

“The unity in the polyhedron is actually sustained by the differences of the different sides, not in the homogeneity,” Scannone said. “In a sense, that reflects life in the United States of America.”

Though liberation theology is far from a household term, its ideas have become mainstream in Catholic social teaching on such issues as the environment and universal health care, Ospino said. It might now hold some keys to working effectively with an ambitious, visionary pope.

“Latin American theology has given a lot of concepts and key notions that Francis uses in the universal magisterium now,” Luciani said. “We cannot understand Francis if we don’t understand Latin American theology.”

  • The very last sentence says it all, “We cannot understand Francis if we don’t understand Latin American theology.” Pope Francis is all about Liberation Theology. Christ did not come to earth to get involved in politics. Liberation Theology focuses on one class of people, the poor. What about the rest of humanity? The Church’s mission is clear. The salvation of souls. This includes the poorest of the poor to the richest of the rich and everything in between. Liberation Theology is nothing more than a distraction from the Church’s real mission, the salvation of souls. Did Christ not tell as that the poor would be with us always? Liberation Theology focuses on the temporal needs of man in this life and neglects mans real need, eternal life with God. There is practically no such thing as sin in Liberation Theology and what little it defines sin is usually against the rich as if only rich people are sinners. Liberation Theology is a poison to the Church and if left unchecked would destroy the Church. Don’t belive me? Just look how Pope Francis as divided the Church. Chaos is now reining under his leadership and if left unchecked then many souls will be lost.

  • “For the military, we were all Marxists.”

    So was the Argentinian Junta, including today’s government which is why today’s government hasn’t alerted the world to the fake ‘collapse’ of the USSR. Of course neither ‘liberation theology’ disciples or the Vatican have alerted the world to the fake ‘collapse’ of the USSR, which introduces us to the Marxist strategy called the ‘Scissors Strategy’. Marxists utilize the tactic of employing false oppositions, more commonly referred to by Marxists as the Scissors Strategy in which the blades represent the two falsely opposed sides that converge on the confused victims, neutralizing true opposition to socialism, thereby allowing the advancement of socialism to the bewilderment of the true opposition.

  • “Christ did not come to earth to get involved in politics.”

    Very true. When Christ entered the Temple to commence His three-year mission He immobilized the Roman soldiers in the cloisters, who were watching the crowds in the courtyards.* There to maintain order in the Temple, the Roman soldiers could only stand their ground as Jesus trashed and cleared the Temple. This is the proof that Jesus is the Christ, and this was known also to the Jewish authorities who witnessed the immobilization miracle.

    ——————————-
    * The Temple was controlled by a Roman legion garrisoned in the adjacent Antonia Fortress.

  • “That’s why it’s essential that this philosophy, this theology, change
    ­— because the circumstances change and the world changes.”

    Since God is Omniscient, God’s Word is true and eternal. In fact the concept of truth informs us of God: There can only be one truth (‘truths’ is a oxymoron), but no mortal can know this truth other than a supreme deity, hence we discover God.

  • 1 of 3 : : About that, what Thomas Groome lied about Pope Francis and liberation theology – “This theology of liberation … now … has come to center stage. It’s almost like the stone which the builders had first rejected has now become the cornerstone, especially in Pope Francis.” (Religion News Service, February 10, 2017)

    SO NOT TRUE.

    Pope Francis alias Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio: (1) didn’t “stand up to Argentina’s military neo-Nazis ‘disappearing’ thousands including priests, (but did) keep his mouth shut and his career on track”; (2) his “approach fits with the Church’s attitude for centuries, to give ‘charity’ to the poor while doing little to change their cruel circumstances as Church grandees hobnob with the rich and powerful”; (3) when subjected to “a serious and reflective assessment of the actions (and inactions) of Cardinal Bergoglio … the Vatican simply denounces all allegations as ‘slander,’ ‘calumny’ and politically motivated lies.” (Consortium News, March 16, 2013)

  • 2 of 3 : : About that, what Thomas Groome lied about Pope Francis and liberation theology – “This theology of liberation … now … has come to center stage. It’s almost like the stone which the builders had first rejected has now become the cornerstone, especially in Pope Francis.” (Religion News Service, February 10, 2017)

    SO NOT TRUE.

    Pope Francis alias Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio: (1) “did not speak out publicly against the Argentine junta as it conducted a ‘dirty war’ killing some 30,000 people, including 150 Catholic priests”; (2) has been “accused … of effectively handing (Father Yorio) over, and his colleague to the death squads, by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work”; (3) “He acknowledges that these priests were picked up and practically killed. He doesn’t accept the fact that it was because of him”; (4) “you can (still) see Jorge Mario Borgoglio giving holy communion to (Argentina General Jorge Rafael) Videla … to the mass murderer” (Consortium News, March 19, 2013)

  • 3 of 3 : : About that, what Thomas Groome lied about Pope Francis and liberation theology – “This theology of liberation … now … has come to center stage. It’s almost like the stone which the builders had first rejected has now become the cornerstone, especially in Pope Francis.” (Religion News Service, February 10, 2017)

    SO NOT TRUE.

    Pope Francis alias Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio: (1) “is averse to liberation theology, which he views as hopelessly tainted with Marxist ideology”; (2) “testified in 2010 that he had met secretly with Gen. Jorge Videla, the former head of the military junta, and Adm. Emilio Massera, the commander of the navy, to ask for the release of the priests” the military had kidnapped; (3) was “called … to testify on the military junta’s systematic kidnapping of children, a subject he was also accused of knowing about but failing to prevent”; (4) “defended his behavior during the dictatorship”; (5) “never issued a formal apology … or commented (but) was … silent” on the otherwise too-close-for-comfort case of “Father von Wernich (who) was found guilty on seven counts of complicity in homicide, more than 40 counts of kidnapping and more than 30 of torture” (New York Times, MARCH 13, 2013).

  • A bastardized liberation theology has “taken center stage” under this pope. The original and true theology called for changing the underlining structures – religious, political, social, cultural – that cause poverty not just handouts to the poor ala Pope Francis.

  • Well said, Betty Clermont. As for me, I may not agree with Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Critical Theory, the book The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and Liberation Theology – but they all have my respect for, and remembrance of, their rightful – and dare I say, heroic? – place in advanced capitalist human history. But this guy, Pope Francis? I may not agree with him, but I still don’t respect him and nor will I – and nor should fellow believers – ever forget his non-victimless collusion with Argentina’s junta in his recent past.

  • Specifically Liberation Theology is the application of the “EIGHT Errors of Russia” to the structure and foundations of the Holy Catholic Church. These are the same Eight Errors of Russia condemned by the Holy Catholic Church and the Blessed Mother at Fatima.
    July 13, 1917 Holy Mary’s message spoke of the spreading of these errors.
    Here they are (incidentally they are a very good description of Liberation Theology too).

    1. Communism
    2. Social Ownership
    3. Atheism
    4. Religion of Man
    5. Scientific world-view
    6. Philosophy and Materialism
    7. Evolution
    8. Moral Relativism
    9. Legal Positivism
    10.Democracy(yes, democracy, which greatly puzzled me at first, but the explanation is right on target.)
    11. Separation of Church and State

    Now it is done!

  • With all due respect to the fine work of this gathering, for over 40 years Hispanic theologians living and working in the USA, some of us born here and others of us immigrants, have also developed our own strands of liberation theologies as well as a substantial body of theological scholarship latinamente. Three of the theologians in this article are part of that significant comunidad of [email protected] theologians (Goizueta, Pineda-Madrid, Ospino). This article would benefit from an appreciation of that reality—communicated in English, Spanish and even Spanglish. Perhaps a better question might be, “should the USA church pay attention to what its own [email protected] theologians have been saying for almost half a century?” USA [email protected] understand Francisco, he is not alien to us, we don’t need interpreters.

  • Carmen Nanko-Fernandez, I don’t know anything about the “significant comunidad of [email protected] theologians (Goizueta, Pineda-Madrid, Ospino)” – let alone their positions on liberation theology. Thanks for the heads-up. Are you familiar, though, with “Father Alejandro López-Cardinale, Hispanic programs coordinator for RENEW International and president of the National Catholic Network de Pastoral Juvenil Hispana (La Red)”? Well, this is what he said about Pope Francis and liberation theology. Back on-topic, see? He “said that youths and young adults are drawn to the pope’s familiarity, his plain language (including, he said, ‘the lyrical licenses that only an Argentinian could take’), and his response to the Gospel’s challenge to care for the vulnerable. … Pope Francis’ pastoral approach has been informed by his time working with the poor and his experience with urban ministry and a ‘teología del pueblo,’ the theology of the people that surged as an alternative to a radical liberation theology in Argentina.” (OSV Newsweekly, Aug 26, 2015)

    Note there: your Pope Francis’ “alternative to a radical liberation theology in Argentina” – not embrace or enhancement of, not owning up to, but “alternative to”! Sounds to me like coopting liberation theology, fake-news spinning it – that’s what he’s really up to. And you fall for that stuff?!

  • Cardinal Ratzinger called liberation a “fatal error.” It is not “controversial”; it is poison.

    This is why most (not all) Hispanic “Catholics” are very bad influences on America – they think Jesus is just a bread and welfare re-distributor. There is also a very noticeable gangster mentality among “Catholic” Hispanics in America. And finally, there is a noticeable anti-American sentiment (central to communism/marxism) among Hispanics.

    Many bishops in America are already spreading the spiritual poison of liberation theology due to their attempts to get the attention of Pope Francis and be named Cardinal.

    They sell their souls in exchange for red clothes and a seat of honor. Effeminate indeed.

  • Frankly, there is no need for a liberation theology if people just followed the Bible. Yes we are called to care for the poor, yes every human being has the same dignity endowed by God. If we better followed what God desires of us, what Jesus taught us, we have the method and answers already.

  • Quite a spin and a stretch you’ve got there, Jim Dorchak – “Liberation Theology is the application of the ‘EIGHT Errors of Russia’ to … the Holy Catholic Church”, which “the Blessed Mother at Fatima … July 13, 1917 … spoke of”. You’re not the only one spinning and stretching this fake news, though, I give you that. Like these guys from over yonder with: “Our Lady of Fatima in 1917 called for the conversion of Russia, or else Russia would spread Her errors. One such error we know from former KGB agent Ion Pacepa was Liberation Theology.” (Church Militant, October 24, 2016)

    Truth is, there couldn’t possibly even be a divining hearsay about liberation theology back then in 1917. According to Jeffrey S. Bennett in his book, When the Sun Danced, the tunnel-visioning mindset of folks in Portugal at the time was such that “the image of Our Lady of Fatima developed into a rallying point for anti-communism, an idea that spread far beyond the Iberian peninsula.” (Wikipedia, last updated 29 January 2017)

    In fact: “Conservative elements in the Spanish Church actively encouraged the Fátima devotion as a way of countering the perceived threat of atheistic Communism. … The Blue Army of Our Lady of Fátima, for instance, has always been strongly anti-Communist and its members often associated the Fátima story in the context of the Cold War. The Blue Army is made up of Catholics and non-Catholics who believe that by dedicating themselves to daily prayer (specifically, of the Rosary), they can help to achieve world peace and put an end to the error of communism.” (Wikipedia, last updated February 11, 2017)

    By all accounts, then, Fatima storytellers and story-consumers were all obsessively anti-communistic in the first place. And they just ran wildly with that story from 1917 onward in response to the appeal and spread of communism around them. But that never turned into an anti-LiberationTheology obsession on their part. Not until the 1970s, that is, some 50 years later, when so many Catholic priests in South America became liberation theologians.

    You knew all that, but you couldn’t help yourself – could you? – spin and stretch that Lady Fatima story to make us all believe in the lie that way back in 1917, she actually saw liberation theology infiltrating the Catholic church in the 1970s. You shouldn’t do stuff like that, you know.

  • Look, Mind Pop Corn Ball (what a strange name), when Father Jorge Mario Borgoglio was “accused … of effectively handing (Father Yorio) over, and his colleague to the death squads, by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work”; and when as Pope Francis he recently “acknowledges that these priests were picked up and practically killed” but not “because of him” (Consortium News, March 19, 2013) – those priests were into liberation theology.  Borgoglio wasn’t, just as now Francis “is averse to liberation theology, which he views as hopelessly tainted with Marxist ideology” (New York Times, March 13, 2013).  And not just in theory, but in practice, too.  I’m referring to “his experience with urban ministry and a ‘teología del pueblo,’ the theology of the people that surged as an alternative to a radical liberation theology in Argentina.” (OSV Newsweekly, Aug 26, 2015)

  • WOW!!!!!!!
    That was so good.
    Look I never said that The Holy Mother dissed Liberation Theology.

    I am pointing out that it is the application of the 8 Errors of Russia in the Catholic Church. Which is plain truth. Not the Holy Mother Mary.

    You went on to try and deny the Divine by insinuating that the Miracle of Fatima was just some mass hallucination. This is just astounding that you would try to convince everyone that an approved apparition was false!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (Like Wikipedia trumps the Mother of our Lord. JAJAJAJAJA as they say here in Chile)

    It is sad that you are so faithless.
    It is sad that you do not see the Heresy in Liberalization Theology
    It is sad that you take the side of the Masons who are alive and well in their efforts as seen in your very statements.

    I live in Chile South America. I experience Liberation Theology every time I go to Mass.

    It is not good.
    It is not Holy
    It is not edifying
    It does not bring people to the Church it chases them off
    It liberates no one
    and it posses little Catholic theology

    In the worse case I am wrong and yet I still become more Holy and maybe, just maybe, more worthy of Christs love by opposing the errors seen in Liberation Theology.

    The Holy Mother of Our Savior Jesus Christ trumps a Pope or any other cleric every time. Sorry you lose!

    I have nothing more to say. I will pray for your conversion.
    I am sorry that you have abandoned the Faith of our fathers.

  • Mondoism: a religion based on a Monetary Rock n’ Roll Fantasy

    A lot of things don’t go as planned but nothing has happened by accident for
    centuries. Don’t worry! The kangaroos driving the taxi know exactly what they’re
    doing.

    Country Dick was a man
    Big as the Rio Grande
    With a voice that boomed like thunder
    but that evil rotten turd
    Mr. my verb
    Country Dick lays six feet under

    Country Dick played the drums
    Like he was f**king nuts
    Behind the rectory
    He was pure Rock n’ Roll
    Chaos in his soul
    He came to set us free

    Country Dick had three wives
    He told them bald face lies
    With women he sure was brave
    But that evil rotten turd
    Mr. My Verb
    Country Dick lays six feet under

    Country Dick was our king
    Truth is he did sing
    He died mid-song on stage
    Killed by record company cheaters
    Bean counting wife beaters
    He would not be their slave

    But friend don’t be sad
    Cause Country Dick is dead
    His voice raves on forever
    and this big ol’ planet Earth

    Has just given birth
    To a brand new hell-raisin’ trouble maker
    Let’s hoist a glass to our friend
    Let the drinkin’ begin

    Eat some ‘shrooms right now
    Play poker ‘till dawn
    Dean Martin records on
    and all rare began to howl

    After Mojo Nixon sang Country Dick’s eulogy, Mojo screamed
    “LETS ALL DRINK LIKE A BEAR”. Everyone laid down. Put their beer between their feet and poured their beer on their face. Country Dick burped. It was a sign from God

  • When Country Dick opened his eyes, he still had his beer bottle in his hand. He saw Gabriel. Country Dick didn’t know he was Jewish, prayed the Kol Nidre,

    All vows and oaths
    We made with the sloth
    Shall be null and void
    Because they’re not humanoids (three times)

    And sang a whopper.

    Mondo lay face down in the desert sand
    Clutching a six-pack in his hand
    I shot him from behind, I thought he was dead
    For between his nuts lay an ounce of lead
    But the sparks still burned, so I used my knife
    Late that night I ruined the sex life of Mondo (Mondo)

    The days went by, he mended quick
    We took the bandages off his dick
    And what was left wouldn’t please a rabbit
    But he was certainly quick to grab it
    Hours and hours I rolled with laughter
    No woman alive would ever go after Mondo (Mondo)

    One day we rode the mountain crest
    I went east and he went west
    I took the porno, became a star
    while he spread hysterics near and far
    All through the west he gained
    such fame in every bar
    that cracked up at the name of Mondo (Mondo)

    I knew someday I’d face the test
    Which one of us could shoot the best
    And sure enough the word came down
    That he was holed up in the town
    I left my posse in the street
    And I went in to beat the meat with Mondo (Mondo)

    They said my spurt was next to none
    But my lightning hand had just begun
    When I felt the splash across my face (beer in face)
    That let me know who ‘d lost the race
    Who shot not once but again and again (more beer in face)
    And through the rain I could see the grin of Mondo (Mondo)

    Well they say that was the only time
    That anyone had seen him smile
    He slowly packed his manhood
    And then he said to me, we’re even friend
    Then and there I understood at last
    One could overcome the past like Mondo (Mondo)

    I blocked the path of his retreat
    He turned and stepped into the street
    My posse made way to his crotch
    A moment later he lay soft
    The town began to shout and cheer
    Nowhere was there shed a tear for Mondo (Mondo)

    Gabriel had no choice except to let Country Dick in because everyone stereotypes. The facts are usually conservative and truth is usually stranger than fiction thanks to all the plausible lies.

  • On Mar’s moon
    There is the obelisk
    Open up the door
    God is an alien?
    Wait what did he say?
    What did he say?

    It couldn’t last
    We have to crash
    Some parties are just made that way
    When the bell rings
    The poles go swinging
    Swing low sweet people

    Let’s say we try to get this right
    Said the Baron of Exchequer
    And when the sheriff was fearing the worst
    I make my entrance in a hearse
    Then the nine in black robes all go berserk
    This is a tale of robin hood in perverse

    When black plague came
    the sheep had no shame
    I stole from the rich
    and gave to those in the ditch
    I come down to discuss tariffs

    Let’s say we try to get this right
    Said the Baron of Exchequer
    And when the sheriff was fearing the worst
    I made my entrance in a hearse
    Then the nine in black robes all go berserk
    This is a tale of robin hood in perverse

    Same morality play over and over again!

    Robin Hood in Perverse sent Country Dick back down to hijack the New World Order,restore our republic, prevent WWIII, and unite all three major religions.

    When Country Dick descended from heaven. Mondo was still living in Lakeside Trailer park. Mondo woke up with a urinal cake in his pocket and freshen up with two bottles of old spice and started playing Redhead Rampage.

    Well Mondo and Country Dick
    we’re listening to Alex Jones
    when the moonshine exploded
    so we fired our guns

    Started to run
    and then everybody reloaded
    Got to the truck
    To go get drunk
    Chain guzzling cans of beer

    When outta nowhere
    There stood a bear
    But we only hit a deer
    While we drank with the bear

    We got little bitty brains
    And great big guns

    I’m on a Redhead Rampage
    Tearing up the USA
    I’m on a Redhead Rampage
    Dominating the front page

    Got some Bannonite
    In case there’s a fight
    And a big ‘ole whup rump stick

    Love to mystery dance
    Can’t stand France

    And Hillary Clinton makes me sick
    I’m a fart lightin’ fool
    Got kicked outta school
    My family tree is a stump

    Real minimum wage renegade
    Master of the twitter snipe

    I’m on a Redhead Rampage
    tearing up the USA
    I’m on a Redhead Rampage
    dominating the front page

    Around three o’clock, Wolf Blitzer tickled Mondo’s leg. Mondo stopped playing Redhead Rampage, and started looking around for money.

  • Country Dick took Mondo by the hand and said “Dear Robin Hood

    Call of the wild is a-ringing in our ears
    There’s a worm in the bottle screaming “Get me outta here!”
    Know what we’re gotta do
    We’re gettin’ drunk, with or without you
    Yeah, we’re gettin’ drunk, with or without you

    That’s right, we’re gettin’ drunk, with or without you

    The next morning, Mondo broke his Harry Reid left handed thigh master and sang the blues.

    Well, I hate my job; I work too hard
    and my dog died yesterday
    my son’s a punk; he shoots up junk
    and I just found out I’m gay
    I come home to a friggin’ zoo
    but it don’t get me uptight
    ‘Cause I live in a Lakeside trailer park
    and everything’s gonna be all right

    Got doctor bills and legal ills
    my wife’s a fat old whore
    My TV’s broke; my life’s a joke
    and the Sheriff moved next door
    But I don’t frown
    don’t get me down
    I got somethin’ good to say
    ‘Cause I live in a Lakeside trailer park
    and everything’s gonna be okay

    It’s so serene
    White and clean
    quiet as a mouse
    so safe in here
    I could spend all year
    my lovely aluminum house

    Well, I bust my butt and I’m in a rut
    But I earned everything that I own
    From my AstroTurf to my Video Smurf
    to my cordless telephone
    You ask me, “Was it worth it all?”
    I say “Yes” with all my might
    ‘Cause I live in a Lakeside trailer park
    and everything’s gonna be all right! All right!

    Mondo broke down and told Country Dick Johnny Wet Start and the
    Rainbow in the Dark pinned and mounted him like a butterfly and Robin Hood in Perverse spoke.

  • Thanks to the vulgar stupidity of filthy dirty and profane intellectuals, political, economic, and religious thought isn’t complex.

    We all care. We all have a sense of fairness. We all don’t like coercion but
    otherwise nothing is sacred. Everybody’s body is an amusement park. Betrayal is
    what we deserve until we stand up for our rights.

    In comparison to persuasion, bribery and coercion are pathetic cop outs but causes for alarm became public institutions of coercion and criminal enterprises one premediated crisis, reaction, and solution at a time.

    Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t pay attention. The guards are worse than the inmates. The warden is worse than the guards. People outside the prison are easier to fool than convince them they have been fooled.

    It’s the nature of the state to grow and grow and consume the civil society unless
    the inmates breakout. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness means being able
    to question authority, presumptions, and protocols from one fresh perspective
    after another because models, templates, and people systems make the difference.

    The Catholic Church created propaganda because so many people don’t question authority, presumptions, and protocols but no matter our wonderful the guards and warden are, terrible things happen to the inmates when the lights are
    turned out. Democide, the state killing its own citizens, is by far the
    greatest mass killer of all time but humor is tragedy plus time and distance. The persistent and persuasive inmates always end up winning.

    Robin Hood, Mondo, & Country Dick burst in song.

    Mondo is walkin’ down the street on a sunny day
    Hubba bubba Hubbell Hubbell hubbell
    feelin’ in his bones that he’ll have his way

    Oh, ain’t it good when things are goin’ your way? Hey hey

    Mondo’s little dog, Hillary, will get hit by a Bernie
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell hubbell
    Mondo will put her guts in a box and put them in a drawer
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell Hubbell

    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)
    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)

    We’ll forgot about Hillary for a month and a half
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell hubbell
    We’ll look in the drawer and start to laugh
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell Hubbell

    Mojo interjected,

    The power of prophecy is amazing but Mondo and Country Dick were on their own. Behind every con man is a real whack job but if Mondo had a pair, Country Dick would play with them all day. Hillary is so mean, she would lop off Bill’s pair, mount them on a wall, and laugh her thighs off only wearing Bill’s full metal helmet head. In the spacious confines of her slacks, Hillary eats black baby liver and onions for breakfast and femme Nazi brains covered with commie cagine in a cast iron burka for dinner.

  • Bill rocked,

    Hillary drives a Scoobybilt
    Its wheels are big and mean
    Stack pipes fill the air with smoke
    She’s proud of that machine

    I met her in El Centro
    In the men’s room of a bar
    We consummated our relationship
    In the front seat of my car

    Well, Big Ugly Wheels
    Rollin’ on down the line,
    Big Ugly Wheels
    Draggin’ that gal of mine home

    Well I should have let her roam
    Motor life is so sinful
    Her home is on the road
    Each night she’s with another woman
    Who’s carryin’ a heavy load

    She wants me to be true to her
    She comes home once a month
    Her mustache caked with vomit
    And teeth marks on her butt

    Well, Big Ugly Wheels
    Rollin’ on down the line,
    Big Ugly Wheels
    Draggin’ that gal of mine home

    Well I should have let her roam

    Bill found Hillary by dragging a dollar across the bathroom floor. Both Country Dick and Mondo knew their opposition well. Hillary will do anything for money.

    Country Dick rocked,

    Irresponsibility’s has been a Hillary’s
    Best friend since 1964
    She Forgets her duty and doesn’t give a shit
    Tell my about the city ordinance
    Tell me that we’re insubordinate
    Plan tomorrow, money to borrow
    She can’t care less, care less
    She can’t care less, care less
    She could careless, careless
    And that’s the way she is

    She never pays attention or watches her step
    Never pay her bills, way in debt
    Tell my about the f**kin’ ordinance
    Tell me that we’re insubordinate
    Plan tomorrow, money to borrow
    She doesn’t care less, care less
    Couldn’t care less, care less

    So careless, careless
    Yeah that’s the way Hillary stays
    Stays Careless, careless

    Yeah careless is the way Hillary stays.

    Is that an earpiece in your lobotomy or my pearl necklace? You can’t wake up a Pocahontas pretending to sleep until you stick your American Bald Eagle in their ear.

    When in the wide wide world of sports are liberals going to stop trying to get everyone to dance around like a bunch of Kansas City mullahs? Nowadays all the Opie Cuttinghams have color TVs to watch the rodeo. The other day, the liberal media facially and odiously profiled Duck Dynasty’s Willie. The morons thought he was Karl Marx.

    Before King James wrote the bible, he was the king of Scotland. When King James, David Hume, and Adam Smith were young Scotsmen. They
    wore their kilts at their knees, spoke Gaelic and played their bag pipes all
    day. The English got fed up with the Hatfields and McCoys and shipped them off
    to Appalachia. King James, David, and Adam pulled up their kilts, learned English, and changed the world. We’re the Scottish Enlightenment shinning city on the hill. Our national anthem is based on an English drinking song about hating the Scots. Next time you’re blowing Barry’s bag pipe, pick me
    up a couple of mouth condoms to keep my feet dry when I go skiing. Hillary is
    going to wake up on November 9th with a salty taste in her mouth. No one can
    beat a hydra on a mission from God.

    Country Dick howled,

    One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning, down the track came a Bernie hiking and he said boys. I’m not turning. I’m headin for a land that’s far away beside the crystal fountains, so come with me we’ll go and see Bernie’s Commie Mountain.

    On Bernie’s Commie Mountain there’s a land that’s fair and bright where the handouts grow on bushes. You sleep out every night because the boxcars are all empty. The sun shines every day on the birds, bees, cigarette trees, and the lemonade springs while the bluebird sings.

    On Bernie’s Commie Mountain all the cops have wooden legs, the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay soft boiled eggs. The farmer’s trees are full of fruit and the barns are full of hay. Oh, I’m bound to go where there ain’t no snow, where the rain don’t fall and the wind don’t blow. On Bernie’s Commie Mountain you never change your socks and streams of alcohol come a-trickling down the rocks. The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind. There’s a lake of stew and of whiskey too. You can paddle all around ’em in a big canoe on Bernie’s Commie Mountain.

    On Bernie’s Commie Mountain the jails are made of tin and you can walk right out again as soon as you are in. There ain’t no short handled shovels, no axes saws or picks. I’m a goin to stay where you sleep all day. Where they hung the jerk that invented work. I’ll see you all this coming fall on Bernie’s Commie Mountain.

    Mondo stumped,

    I can’t taste the difference between Wilson and Barack vegetable oil. The Federal
    Reserve was created on Jekyll Island and Obama is the Prince of Hyde Park. A
    famous Central Banker said something like “If I control the money supply,
    I care not for your laws”. If debt is money that can only be paid off with
    more debt money …. Someone ends up owning everything and everybody. If you
    think I’m crazy, the principle is thin air, you are a useless eater, and the
    agenda 21 air your breath is creating global warming.

    Karl Marx was fat, lazy, and stinky bum who managed to do an unbelievable amount of harm with his extremely faulty intelligence machine. On page 64 of the Communist Manifesto Marx and Engels outlined everything.

  • Country Dick Howled,

    On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
    Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
    Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to stop for the night

    Michelle stood in the doorway;
    I heard the mission bell
    And I was thinking to myself,
    “This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
    Then she lit up my candle and she showed me the way
    There were voices down the corridor,

    I thought I heard them say…
    Welcome to the Hotel Obama
    Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Hotel Obama
    Any time of year (Any time of year)
    You can find it here

    Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
    She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls hot dogs
    How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
    Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
    So I called up the Captain,
    “Please bring me my wine”
    He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine”
    And still those voices are calling from far away,
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to hear them say…

    Welcome to the Hotel Obama
    Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
    Such a lovely face
    They livin’ it up at the Hotel Obama
    What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
    Bring your alibis
    Mirrors on the ceiling,
    The pink champagne on ice
    Michelle said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
    And in the master’s chambers,
    They gathered for the feast
    They stab it with their steely knives,
    But they just can’t kill the beast
    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the place I was before
    “Relax, ” said the night man,
    “We are programmed to receive.
    You can check-out any time you like,
    But you can never leave! “

  • Mondo stumped,

    No free speech and you can only travel via the Hotel shuttle. Please invite all
    your rich friends. All property is taken from the emigrants and anyone who
    complains about the service. We pay with counterfeit dollars and extra tax
    people who work harder to have more counterfeit dollars. If any of the other
    guests like your dress or suit, we all share at Hotel Obama. Next week, we are
    going up to your lake property but you can’t go until you are part of the
    collective. You are no longer the President of your company and all the
    machines are ours. Tomorrow morning your chain gang is farming and next week
    you will be doing factory work. The Lawman said “You can check in anytime
    you like but you can never leave”.Would a green on the outside red on the inside
    watermelon head make themselves rich by making everyone poor? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    God save the Queen and the central banking nobility.George Soros was eating over. A string got caught in his teeth and out popped Camilla’s prince Charles.
    The tri-laterals are painting Obama’s hair technocratic grey. By this time next year, he’ll be fully automated. We’re scheduled to be obsolete by 2040. If the drapes don’t match the shag carpet, does the carpet turn technocratic grey?

    They’re putting up like a thousand Ba’al arches here, there, everywhere! “I’m coming out for the whole world to see” and the next thing “I’M GOING TO SUCK ON YOU LIKE A BUCKET OF TICKS FOR ETERNITY!”.

    The McGuffin is spiking humanity. The setup hero is Barack. The villain is humanity. Hillary is the anti-Christ.

    You’re gonna die of Lyme disease in denial unless you untie your tubes you tied in your commie core teens and join Team America. Hillary was last in line for brains. The ones she’s got are rotten and insane.

    On top of the Nazi pyramid, it’s a pedo cult. Hillary shattered the glass ceiling and next time Obama sits on your face, you’re going to find out King Obola doesn’t love you.

    possible. The same bunch does much of the human, drug, and arm trafficking
    scientifically and religiously. Totally messed up bunch no matter the religion.

    The eyes wired shut pizzagate stuff is pretty easy to explain. 1984 was written in
    1948 because Janus was the Roman God of chaos – one head looking forward and one looking backwards. Trust but verify after the flipping everything 180
    degrees. Unity is division, war is peace, ignorance is strength, 2+2=5, and
    freedom is slavery. New World Order backwards is OWN everything and everyone. The liars and crooks hate us not because of what we say and do. The liars and crooks hate us because of who the crooks are. If the liars and crooks really hate themselves and enjoy destroying innocence, they make better transposing psychopaths. Bill Casey said if everything the Americans believe is complete nonsense, we will have done our job. JFK cut taxes 50%, issued debt free currency, and wanted to bust the CIA into a million pieces. The CIA likes Chicago style hot dogs, Italian Beef with Giardiniera, and pizza burgers.

  • Obama thought he could get away with replacing George Washington with Muhammad doing a Norman Rockwell portrait of himself. Muhammad’s
    Obama grin and Yamaka gave him away.

    If half the players are in the stands cheering on a back door Santa, King James will move to Miami, move overseas, or sit in the stands. Radical referees always go left, think the best defense is an infuriating offense, and promote their failures. Obama is a missed layup and we have to beg him to fix the pothole – oops another miss.

    The “wipe out the middle class” criminal elite game plan is Cloward and

    If debt is money thanks to compounding interest, the national debt very quickly
    rises. As the economic hit men take the jobs and money out, they bring the

    If your team has three referees, you’ll have 17 players making $100 and keeping
    $90, the refs get their $50, and the leech gets $33, the free market action
    will be incredible and everyone’s standard of living doubles in a decade or
    two.

    My team has six referees. I have 10 players making $100 and keeping only $62. The free market action isn’t very good because of the screwy calls. Nobody’s lot
    improves but Country Dictator (6 referees + 5 leeches =11>10 players) is
    firmly in charge. So much for Democracy.

    The International Communists are evil dictators who like to have seven or more
    referees. Less than eight players keeping less than $45 and six or more leeches
    to overload the third world into the developing world and it turn the first so
    everyone has to suck off their hemorrhoids until the world’s population is

    Long time ago me and Mondo here,
    We was hitchhikin’ down a long and lonesome road.
    All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon.
    In the middle of the road.
    And he said: “Tell me the greatest load of crap in the world, or I’ll eat your
    soul.” (soul)

    Well me and Mondo,
    we looked at each other,
    And we each said. “Okay.”
    And we played the
    first thing that came to our heads,
    Just so happened to be,
    The Best Story in the World, it was The Best Story in the World.

    Look into my eyes
    and it’s easy to see
    One and one make two, two and one make three,
    It was destiny.
    Once every hundred-thousand years or so,

    When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
    And the grass doth grow
    Needless to say,
    the beast was stunned.
    Whip-crack went his whoopy tail,
    And the beast was done.
    He asked us: “(snort) Be you angels?”
    And we said, “Nay. We are but men.”
    Rock! Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
    Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

    This is not The Greatest Story in the World, no.
    This is just a tribute. Couldn’t remember The Greatest Story in the World, no, no.
    This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Story in the World,
    All right! It is the Greatest Story in the World,
    All right! It is the best story in the world.

    And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
    The story we told on that fateful night it didn’t actually sound
    Anything like this story.

    This is just a tribute! You gotta believe it!

    And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.

    Back in the day, the Puritans were not cool with freedom of religion. Thank god liberalism is the idea that evil deserves a fair chance. The freedom loving Quakers taught the Puritans a lesson by walking up and down the aisles undressed. Mass is at 9 am. If you want to coexist, just call and I’ll give you directions.

    After I stick my tea bags so far up your liberal mash potatoes your mouth stars as the family guy’s chin, we can go to the Church festival and share a Pelosi – a warm Italian dessert stuffed with pork and topped with bacon. Every year there is a Church gun sale.

    Philo, of the Alexandria Israelites, kicked a touchdown Buddha by reconciling Greek and Roman philosophy with God. The proverbs game was on the line. What would Caligula do?

    Thanks to the Flavians, one could make the argument that Jesus was a Roman creation that did such a good job of dividing the Jews that the Roman Empire was very peaceful from 70AD to 180AD. Titus called himself the son of God and God was his Ronald Reagan like dad. Emperor Vespasian is famous for saying “Damn
    it! I’m becoming a God!”. Titus Flavius Josephus wrote the History of the Roman
    Jewish War which matched the first three Gospels.

    Hillary of the evening was eyeballing him
    Staring down from the balcony
    She walked up to him with gun powder breath
    The ace of hearts was bleeding from her hip
    She dragged him upstairs by her lower lip

    She couldn’t untie his boots, she couldn’t untie his jeans
    She couldn’t open his pickle jar, Jimmy popped in his teens
    ’bout that time Bill’s front door was kicked in
    And there stood some a$$hole all covered in sin
    Bill says ‘That’s my woman’, Mondo said ‘That’s no lie’
    Hillary blew a hole in him just as big as the sky

  • Mondo Stumped,

    Ronald Reagan wasn’t a lifeguard. President Reagan was a life saver for opening the big pool for business. When the rich man goes off the end of innovation diving board, he or she swims to the side of the pool and gets back in line. Reagan also cut taxes along the virgin mother of economics.

    During the Elizabethan age, Queen Elizabeth took England from an indebted backwater to the dominate world power. King Phillip and Sir John Keynes didn’t bust her Friedrich Hayek and capitalist pirates. Her cast iron booty was pure silver and gold that’s why our founding fathers promoted the species in the Constitution but what Queen Elizabeth and her public corporations were all about has been forgotten.

    Queen Elizabeth wanted everyone to love her and loved to give. Her despotic suitors and predecessor weren’t smart enough to realize they had to take in order to give. Taxpaying parishioners love to give after they have plenty of earned success making other people happy. The English loved her and still love her to this day.

    Queen Elizabeth’s public corporations were a means to put a bloated bureaucracy through a Church of England basket strainer. If the taxpaying parishioners thought a project or bureaucracy was of no use then no money went into the collection basket.

    By separating what government needed to do and what everyone wanted done, she was able to lower the base flat tax rate. The virgin mother of economics made it very clear that her capitalist pirates had to walk the free market plank. There is a right and wrong way for fat cats, politicians, and bureaucrats to get some loving. The fat cats, at the end of the diving board, made everyone love them by putting more money in the collection basket. With the belly flop junk out of the system, the government pumps ran smoothly and the control valves worked.

    Should I build a pedestal or replace Hamilton with $10 Sarah Palin only wearing a gold and silver chastity belt. I got my sister to tickle my Elmos. I know I can do you. Thanks to Sir Francis Bacon’s William Shakespeare, another cool fake phony coming.

    Country Dick howled,

    Lump sat alone in a boggy marsh
    totally motionless except for Dick Cheney’s heart
    and mud flowed up into Lump’s pajamas
    totally confused by the passing piranhas

    She’s Lump, she’s Lump
    Stump’s in her head
    She’s Lump, she’s Lump, she’s Lump
    Think she might be dead

    Lump lingered last in line for brains
    and the ones she got were sort of rotten and insane
    Small thing’s so sad that birds could land
    Is Lump fast asleep or suckin’ off the lamb?

    She’s Lump, she’s Lump
    Stump’s in her head
    She’s Lump, she’s Lump, she’s Lump
    she might be dead

    Check it out

    Lump was limp and lonely and needed a shove
    Lump slipped on a Huma and tumbled into love
    she spent her twenties between the sheets
    Life limped along at supersonic speeds

    She’s Lump, she’s Lump
    Stump’s in her head
    She’s Lump, she’s Lump, she’s Lump
    I do believe that she’s dead
    (Hillary’s dead, dead as a doornail)

    Is Lump all that’s in your head, I think so
    Is Lump and Stump in your head, I think so
    Is Stump all that’s in your head, I think so

  • Mondo Stumped,

    It all boils down to sex, drugs, and a new monetary system every 80 years or so. The technocratic Jacob Franken-steins are going take electronic currency and create a new and improved NBA Jesus and you’re all going to love it. Trust me. I make great deals. Trust me.

    Second place is the first place loser but a peek is worth ten free market estimators. Reverse auction bid results can be turned into a low bid equation with a variance that looks something like this:

    Low Bid = (95% -1% times the number of bidders) times the average bid

    Companies, individuals, and countries play free market basketball on a diving board because an individual or organization can’t maximize their profits if they hit
    more often than the dummy. Since free markets come to an equilibrium between
    four and five bidders, a 5% drop in price is usually enough to jump to 15%
    higher overall hit rate. Government is a slam dunking monopoly that has proven
    to be 20% more expense than the free market. Socialism, Fascism, Marxism,
    Statism, etc. is four scarcity leaps backwards and corresponds with Carman’s
    and Kenneth’s findings.

    A Harvard Professor and previous President of IMF wrote a book called “This
    Time is Different”. Carman Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff studied fiscal
    crisis in 65 countries over 500 years. 1% GDP reduction in taxes increases
    private sector 3% in GDP. 1% GDP increase in Government Spending deceases
    private sector 1.2% GDP with a -0.2% change in GDP. Obviously a great deal of
    government debt can put a country at significant interest rate risk.

    If we go from a 38% tax rate to 20% tax rate with a balanced budget the private
    sector will grow from $11 Trillion to over $16 Trillion. Tax revenue won’t
    decrease 48%. Tax revenue will only decrease 24%. Half of Washington won’t have to go on a permanent vacation, only one out of four. Employment will increase 25% so displaced bureaucrats will have lots of new opportunities to contribute to society.

    If we get down to a balanced 10%, $20 Trillion – more than a 60% increase in jobs if half of Washington goes on a permanent vacation, each dollar earned buys
    ($0.90/$0.62) 45% more, and hard America becomes a soft warm place.

    John Nash’s beautiful mind recognized the importance of interactions in which the
    results of one person’s choices depend not only on his own behavior but also on
    the choices of another person. There is a related game called Ultimatum. You
    and your partner split $10. Less than $3 deals disgust and anger. The dealer
    has a pulpit.

    The Laffer effect is no joke. Charles Adams, an international tax attorney and
    historian, wrote books on taxes. Once tax rates rise above the disgust and
    anger point, the expected extra tax revenue never shows up. A flat tax system
    is part of Constitution. Everyone has to pay taxes to keep as many people’s tax
    rate below the disgust and anger tax rate or make sure an overwhelming majority
    is disgusted with high taxes. Free market innovation boils down to a desire for
    players to hit a third of their shots.

    Dealers can routinely get an $8 to $10 deal by getting his or her partner work for a $3 to $5 deal. With each $3 to $5 of earned success the partner becomes a dealer that turns the $3 to $5 deal into $6 to $8 of earned success. Turning $10 into $13 is a win-win systemic solution that creates good people, great outcomes,
    and durable trust but when it rains, rainmakers show up and turn everything to
    dirt.

    There will always be zero-sum losers who just accept less than $3 deals and think the key to success is being an abusive dealer. A $7-$3 deal isn’t better than a $6-$4 deal because $7-$3 deals turn into $6-$2, $5-$1, and $4-two bit deals.
    Rainmakers turn everything to dirt because they feel entitled to $7up and
    someone else has to pay for the diet $7up.

    Obama and company’s overall 30% to 40% tax and spend policies have systemically increased the public sector by 25% and eliminated 10 million private sector jobs. Present day Switzerland, Russia, and much of Eastern Europe are 15% tax and spend countries.

  • Robin Hood, Mondo, & Country Dick burst in song.

    Mondo is walkin’ down the street on a sunny day
    Hubba bubba Hubbell Hubbell hubbell
    feelin’ in his bones that he’ll have his way
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell hubbell

    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)
    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)
    Oh, ain’t it good when things are goin’ your way? Hey hey

    Mondo’s little dog, Hillary, got hit by a Bernie
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell hubbell
    Mondo put her guts in a box and put them in a drawer

    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)
    Well, Mondo is a happy boy (happy boy)
    Oh, ain’t it good when things are goin’ your way? Hey hey

    We’ll forgot about Hillary for a month and a half
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell hubbell
    We’ll look in the drawer and start to laugh
    Hubba bubba hubbell hubbell Hubbell

    Mondo went back to stumping,

    For most of our history, the state was about 10% of economy and the gold and silver backed dollar remained the same value from 1776 to 1913. The 10% public sector corresponds to a bottom 20% to top 20% ideal wealth distribution is around $3.50, $4.50, $6.25, $8.25, and $11.25.

    We went off the gold standard 40 years ago. Over that period the average overall
    tax rate was about 30%. Over the last 40 years relative wealth distribution
    went from ($2.75, $4.00, $5.25, $7.00, $9.25) to ($1.25, $2.00, $2.75, $3.50,
    $18.50). 30% to 40% Obama has taken us to ($1.00, $1.75, $2.50, $3.25, $16.75). If the dollar is no longer the world currency, ($0.75, $1.31, $1.87, $2.41,
    $12.19) but after the crash we go back to the 10% public sector and stable
    money supply model. ($1.92, $2.47, $3.43, $4.52, $6.17) and ($3.50, $4.50,
    $6.25, $8.25, $11.25) within less than five years.

    Thanks to 10% state related free market innovation, a doubling of everyone’s standard of living every decade ($7.00, $9.00, $12.50, $16.50, $22.50), ($14.00, $18.00, $25.00, $33.00, $45.00), and ($28.00,$36.00, $50.00, $66.00, $90.00).

    In summary, one state job, directly or indirectly, costs around six free market
    jobs. A stable money supply, small inexpensive governance, and anti-monopolistic policies creates an innovative middle class but in NBAutopia
    no one gets to stay on top forever.

    Due to the competition, everyone has to work on their game yet everyone gets to
    play. Everything gets less and less expensive and the bottom to top wealth
    distribution remains ($3.50, $4.50, $6.25, $8.25, $11.25).

    Monopolies could be dissolved in 10% x 7, 8%,6%,5%,4%….. 17 or more companies or be internally set up that way to minimize the downside associated with creating and maintaining a monopoly (Parkinson disease)…..Besides creating a lot misery, monopolies implode within a decade or two. Monopoly men are narcissistic nitwits, trust me.

    Gold, silver, or standalone Bitcoins or electronic currency is another cool
    possibility because free market transactions could be progressively taxed at
    (0-5.33% locally, 0-5.33% on state basis, and 0-5.33% on a federal level up
    until the pivot (around the fourth wealth distribution point) and 5.33% or more
    out to the end of the diving board to encourage companies to stop at the pivot
    (around 10% market share) for theirs and everyone’s benefit.

    Mojo summed it all up,

    Man, there’s a lot of unexplained phenomenon out there in the world. Lot of things people say, what the heck’s going on? Let me tell ya! Who built the pyramids? Stump! Who built Stonehenge? Stump!

    Yeah, man you see guys walking down the street pushing shopping carts and you think they’re talking to Allah, they’re talk to themselves. Man, no they’re talking to Stump! Stump! Stump! We’re all going to be rich!

    You know what’s going on in that Bermuda Triangle? Down in the Bermuda Triangle. Stump saves planes. Stump stops drones. Stump,
    Stump, Stump, Stump, Stump saves cruises. Aahh! The Sailing Stump! Captain Stump! President Mondo Stump it is.

    untie your tubes you tied in your commie core teens and join team America. We can all enjoy indescribable founding father delight, double wides, and all our cousins!

    Aliens from outer space all look like Mondo Stump but it won’t matter. We’ll all be moving in perfect Stumpness!

    Next Fourth of July will be Independence Day and worldwide Mondo day! Mondo! Mondo! Mondo!

  • This just in.  Yesterday I went around Lifesite News asking for their primary source of information confirming that Pope Francis is now a liberation theologian.  I still have my reservations, but FYI – this is what I got, from that news group’s founder himself:

    “Pope Francis frequently says one thing and then does something the total opposite. He has given high praise to the founders of Liberation Theology and brought Liberation theology advocates into the Vatican.  I was personally present at a Vatican press conference during which one the founders of liberation theology, Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez Merino, was present and spoke. He was praised by one person after another on the panel, especially by Cardinal Maradiaga, the head of Francis group of 9 advisers and also an advocate of liberation theology.  For a period of time in Argentina, bishop/Cardinal Borgoglio strongly condemned liberation theology but later did a complete flip and advocated for it and regretted his past opposition.” (Steve Jalsevac, article comment, Lifesite News, February 11, 2017)

  • Wow that was an uncivil turd of a post to drop into this discussion. Let me guess, you are used to posting on Reddit.

  • “You’ve never seen the police sit back and do nothing?”

    The police have never done nothing knowing they are about to die at the hands of the whole population of Jerusalem, leading to Judea’s revolt where the Roman garrison in Caesarea is also destroyed.

    Your analogy belies ignorance of why Roman soldiers carefully watched, from the cloisters, the crowds in the Temple courtyards during the religious festivals…to prevent the excitable Jews from revolting against Roman authority should they believe a Messiah, or prophet, has appeared in the Temple. And Jesus cleared the Temple courtyards twice(!), and for three years moved freely about Roman Judea with His disciples agitating the population, an action that was immediately stopped by Roman cavalry if it was anyone else but Jesus or His disciples committing the agitation.

  • Maybe they saw the Temple episode for what it was, a relatively small group of rabble-rousers out to disturb the peace. The Romans were well skilled at crushing Jewish revolts. This they let go.

  • “Maybe they saw the Temple episode for what it was, a relatively small group of rabble-rousers out to disturb the peace.”

    The Roman guards didn’t allow for episodes to develop into anything. They immediately acted to PREVENT a disaster. That’s why, during festival periods, Roman guards were placed in the cloisters just out of view of the crowds, but in close enough proximity to the crowds that they can see everything that’s transpiring. In fact, after Jesus has wrestled control of the Temple from the Roman garrison, there are riots taking place outside in Jerusalem as Jews believe it’s the Romans who are preventing them from entering the Temple. The mob wants to kill Romans, but Jesus performs yet another miracle that prevents those Jews in Jerusalem from killing Romans.

    “The Romans were well skilled at crushing Jewish revolts.”

    Because Rome squashed the revolts at the beginning signs of a revolt, but Roman soldiers failed to distinguish the revolt of 66 AD.

  • Liberation Theology is based on rigorous and sound biblical study. Liberation Theology was The Only Theology of the early church. Then Constantine made it part of government as the state church, politicians and clergy saw how they could use the religion as a tool to control the masses and extract wealth from them. With a few changes, they were off.

    Those changes included getting rid of the pastoral scenes and imagery of love and peace that dominated iconography and murals in the church buildings. Those were painted over with images of blood, torture and torn bodies. A very large hierarchy was created and a different theology of pain, suffering, fear, guilt and shame was created to more easily manage the sheep. The fleecing began and continues today with no end in sight.

    What could have been a beautiful and life giving faith was bastardized into something ugly and unrecognizable by Jesus and his friends. There are small pockets of those who struggle to be faithful to Jesus’ work, teaching and modeling.
