Tiger Tale Journal -- Cat Thoughts on Life, Religion and Politics

The greater part of what my neighbors call good, I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well? --Henry Thoreau

Republicans Will Lose in November

The behavior of the Republicans in the past two days has been revealing.

Republican Congressmen waved banners and signs from the House balcony to egg on and fire up the mob of Tea Party demonstrators outside......those same Tea Party demonstrators who were yelling "Nigger" and "Faggot" at passing Democrats.

One of the Republican Congressmen yelled "Babykiller" at Congressman Stupak when he stated that he would vote for the health care bill (an amazingly bizarre bit of namecalling since the health care bill will actually SAVE the lives of babies instead of killing them).

The Republicans consistently told lie after lie after lie in opposing the health care bill (the lie that it would fund abortion was an example). When caught and exposed in their lies......they simply continued to repeat the same lies over and over.

The Democrats, on the other hand, told the truth and walked boldly and calmly through the hate-filled mobs--staying focused on their work of winning a great victory for the American people.

Those Democrats succeeded in winning that great victory for the American people. Health care passed. Children.....now getting proper preventative care, will live rather than die.

Now Republicans say that Americans should vote the Democrats out of office. What? Did I hear them right?

I can only conclude that the Republicans have totally lost touch with reality. Indeed, America owes a huge vote of thanks to the Democrats.

I can't imagine that, after the way the Republicans revealed their true nature over the past two days, that anyone would ever vote for a Republican again.

I think the Republicans are in for a big surprise in the November elections when they find THEMSELVES being voted out of office.

I don't Usually Watch Fox News, but.....

One has to watch them this morning as the fact dawns on them that good people have prevailed and Obama's health care bill will pass the House.

There are long faces in Muddville.

There is confusion and bitterness in Muddville.

The massive attempt to make health care Obama's "Waterloo" has failed miserably.

There is no joy in Muddville.

The mighty Fascists have struck out.

Tahir Ul-Qadri False Prophet?

Tahir Ul-Qadri is a Muslim cleric who just issued a Fatwa CONDEMNING suicide-bombing and terrorism.

Why are his words not credible?

The cleric spoke of the "Anti-Christ." Since Muslims revere Jesus but do not believe in the "Christ" concept popularized by Pauline Christianity--why would he use such a term?

Even the term "terrorism" is a Western construct. Who was Ul-Qadri really addressing? What audience? Is it a ploy to gain power with pro-Western factions in Pakistan?

His words ring false. Utterly false. And if I, a Westerner, see it as false, how can it resonate within Islam?

Who Causes Violence?

I hear a lot of complaining about 9/11 and suicide bombers.

But if the Palestinians and Afghans and Iraqis and Pakistanis had F-16s and Helicopter Gunships and Predator Drones and spy satellites......they wouldn't be doing the suicide bombings.

If they had nuclear weapons we would not be attacking them at all.

The suicide bombings are not the problem........it seems more likely that there is a problem of strong attacking weak.

And if we were not possessing their lands by use of our F-16s and Helicopter Gunships and Predator Drones and spy satellites.......they wouldn't be doing suicide bombings.
