A Christian perspective on the Scrooge-like behavior of the neocon right wing.

The problem with neocons is that they think 'civilization' ENDS at the threshold of the "free market" (right wing code for the "economic law of the jungle: the predatory cult of enriching oneself at others' expense")

These people who exhalt themselves and denigrate others whom they disdainfully call 'bums' and speak of the meager income the poor may get from the government as "entitlements' (implying that any money the poor get from the government proves they are bums)

The right wing refuses to see that it is THEY who are the irresponsible ones, because they REFUSE to contribute their fair share back to the social wellbeing of society and the good of the many, preferring rather to gripe about having to pay any taxes while they leech off the labor and work of low income workers and pocket the profits gained on the backs of people they despise and people whose wages THEY have kept back by fraud and classist rationalizations. They leech off the very system that affords them their opportunities but then begrudge those poorer than they any benefit from that very same system. It is "do as I say, not as I do because THEY reserve the right to "get theirs' but hate others who may receive even a pittance of benefit from a miserly, two tiered system that rewards the rich and punishes the poor.

It is OK for the right to leech off society but not for poor to receive any unemployment or disability benefits after they WORKED for those benefits and paid in taxes while they were working by way of tax withholding. However, the right winger, hypocritically, never begrudges Wall Street parasites the money they skim off society to the tune of trillions of dollars.

So, while they accuse the poor of being lazy, these Senators with stony hearts cut offthe emergency income with which the poor need to live, andprefer to project their own laziness and selfishness onto those who are least among us.

People like Senators Kyl and Bunning feel that those beneath them in income don't deserve any help from the government because they supposedly are not "hard working enough," as if these political weasels do any work themselves at all but still fancy themselves to be moral arbiters.

It is ironic that THE RIGHT.which lives off others' work in that their profits derive from the blood, sweat and tears of the masses, yet they begrudge any government help to those monetarily beneath who both worked to pay taxes and operated the businesses that enrich these right wingers. The right pays substandard wages, then denies the serfs who make their money even a pittance of government help when the chips are down.

These selfish, hard-hearted, fascist- nihilist-narcissists mistake their own good luck and opportunism as some kind of superior prowess. They callously think that those beneath them, because they are poor, DESERVE their life of illness, poverty and wretchedness. They mistake greed, ingratitude and heartlessness for moral superiority over those they 'resent' for taking government help while down on luck. In fact, those on unemployment are mostly there because the right destroyed our financial system and put the poor in the street. The poor are often poor through NO fault of their own. The elitist, OVER-privileged, judgmental right winger (the Bible calls that being "a judge with evil thoughts") WORKS NOTHING BUT THEIR MOUTHS. They persecute the poor while adoring themselves amidst idolatry in service to the money-god, Mammon).

These folks sorely need to hear the following words from the Bible: The Book of James in the New Testament: (quote):

"JAS 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

JAS 2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be you warmed and filled; notwithstanding you give them not those things which are needful to the body; what does it profit?

JAS 4:13 Come now, you that say, "today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:"

JAS 4:14 Whereas you don't know what will happen tomorrow . For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.

JAS 4:15 For that you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live, and do this, or that.

JAS 4:16 But now you rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
