I agree, but let's not forget that some of Jesus' best teachings were given while He fed the hungry and healed the sick...

This Jesus sounds like a pretty cool guy. A bit socialist for my liking though.

Well, let's start with Timothy Geithner and work our way from there. Plenty more where that one came from.

Obama's approval rating is now at 39% (per Gallup).

This is how people lose elections.

From the NYT:

Quote:
Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Plouffe, and his chief of staff, William M. Daley, want him to maintain a pragmatic strategy of appealing to independent voters by advocating ideas that can pass Congress, even if they may not have much economic impact. These include free trade agreements and improved patent protections for inventors.
Pathetic and criminal, frankly. It's over - plutocracy has won, everyone else has lost.

Yes, let's maintain an illusion of efficiency by wasting time on ineffectual policies rather than spending time and political capital on stuff that could actually do good and effect long-term change.
