The Martyr
Author: BobR    Date: 04/30/2008 12:52:32

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life... (John 3:17)


According to Websters, a martyr is "a person who is put to death or endures great suffering on behalf of any belief, principle, or cause". About 2000 years ago, Jesus allowed himself to be martyred for the sins of mankind (if you believe the Christian Bible). There are two types of martyrs: Those that allow themselves to be nailed to the cross for the greater good, and those that nail themselves to the cross so they can feel noble and important. There are too many of the latter, and not enough of the former in this world.

Over the past few weeks, the Rev. Wright has been an albatros around the neck of Senator Obama. The fiery sermons were causing problems, and both of them knew it. Obama's famous "Pennsylvania Speech" on race relations helped to put water to the flames, but those in the media and those with an agenda would not let the embers die.

Over this past weekend, Rev. Wright made some extraordinary comments. He accused the government of introducing AIDS into the gay community... he danced around explaining the difference between white and black marching bands. Rather than tone himself down to match Obama's cool demeanor, he kicked it up several notches, thus putting even more distance between them.

The end result of the spectacle is that Obama became the "rational" one and denounced the reverend. Was the Rev. trying to hurt Obama for his attempts to create distance, as some have suggested? Or was he trying to help Obama by giving him the knife he needed to sever the relationship?

Being a man of the cloth, he is apt to feel empathy. He may have realized that he was a burden and decided to help Obama by removing himself from the discussion. There had been calls for Obama to dispute and disown the Rev., pleadings which Obama righteously chose to ignore, to his own detriment. It's possible that Rev. Wright knew that Obama would not disassociate himself unless there were actions and comments too controversial to ignore, and thus put himself out there to help Obama do that. Regardless of whether that was the raison d'etre, that's exactly what transpired.

There was some discussion a long ways back that Obama wasn't "black enough" for the black community, which has proved to be untrue. The Rev. Wright debacle may have been promoting unspoken thoughts that he was "too black" for the white community. The end result is that - like Goldilocks and the porridge - he may have found a level that is just right (no pun intended) for everyone.

Only the Rev. knows whether he sacrificed himself for Obama, and - if so - whether he did it for selfish or selfless reasons. It's safe to assume that no one will know for sure until after November. Let's all hope that whatever the motivation, the "Wright" issue is finally ensconsed in its tomb.

McCain offers market based health plan...



[...]McCain's prescription would seek to lure workers away from their company health plans with a $5,000 family tax credit and a promise that, left to their own devices, they would be able to find cheaper insurance that is more tailored to their health-care needs and not tied to a particular job.[...]



Basically it is the same plan that Bush touted. :rolleyes:

Comment by velveeta jones on 04/30/2008 13:20:08
:clap: Yes, I agree with the Mrs. :P



'Tis indeed an excellent blog.



Here's the thing - one which many talking heads are gawking at - many, many black people, and gay people, DO believe that the Gov't had something to do with AIDS. So, do you just "poo-poo" their feelings? After the Tuskegee Experiment is it so hard to deny these people that belief?





"YES" according to most of these "newscasters" and neo-con blow-hards.



Well.......... FUCK THEM.

Of course - this assumes you are making enough money to pay $5000 in taxes a year.... and that you have enough money to pay for it up front... and that you have no pre-existing conditions that would cause insurance companies to charge you a much higher rate (if they covered you at all).



Lot of ASSumptions there...

Today's NYT Editorial:



It was the most forthright repudiation of an out-of-control supporter that we can remember. We would like to say that it will finally take the racial charge out of this campaign. We’re not that naïve.



It is an injustice, a legacy of the racist threads of this nation’s history, but prominent African-Americans are regularly called upon to explain or repudiate what other black Americans have to say, while white public figures are rarely, if ever, handed that burden.



Senator John McCain has continued to embrace a prominent white supporter, Pastor John Hagee, whose bigotry matches that of Mr. Wright. Mr. McCain has not tried hard enough to stop a race-baiting commercial — complete with video of Mr. Wright — that is being run against Mr. Obama in North Carolina.

===============================================



There is more at the link, but This ad should now be pulled, altho I won't hold my breath, in the mean time, McCain still plays the race card.

A belated good morning everyone. I was listening but a little sluggish this morning.



Yeah, I am a perfect example of how well the Bush policies have done for the economy.



And speaking of fees, driving down to DC, it seems like every so many miles I had to stop and pay a frickin' toll between the Verrazano and the Harbor Day Tunnel in Baltimore.

Here's what I about my lady friend. . . she believes a lot of these same lies that Donnie believes. She's not annoying in how she does it, but I think that goes without saying. She told me that she likes Thomas Friedman! :thud:

And, the other night expressed confusion about "well, it is a Global Economy, etc, etc, etc."



It's amazing how differently the conversation goes when you have someone open and willing to connecting the dots and having that "Ah Ha" moment when they realize that perhaps everything they hear on Corporate Television, or read in Corporate Press isn't necessarily true.



She has decided to start reading about History and listening to Thom Hartmann; I told her that is pretty much where I have learned the most in the past 5 years.

That is the drawback to living on Long Island is that you pretty much need the car to get around. While there is public transportation, it is really only viable if you want to go into New York City. Between the cost of gas and the aging of my car, I more and more wish I had a job in the city so I could take the train instead of drive. (Not to mention hopefully have something that pays more money).

I'm just a hair under 4 miles door to door.



On a good day, I can get here faster by bike than by driving, but generally around 20 minutes one way. It is all flat, and I have the advantage of a dedicated bike trail down the river that is free of traffic. I also only have two street crossings to deal with.



In Massachusetts, "Ride your bike to work week" is coming up, May 12-16. I don't know if that's a national thing. In any case, the company's "Green Team" is putting on a big to-do about it.

Hmmm...I have been considering driving to the park and ride that is about 7.5 miles from work and then biking the rest of the way. Eesh...that would take me over an hour and my car commute would still be 18 miles each way.

I know he puts the craziest Righties on to debate and poke holes in their ideas but this goes too far.



BTW, It looks like I will be able to listen to Randi when driving to work again. According to DCRTV;



Randi Rhodes Returns To XM - 4/30 - DCRTV tipped you off a few days ago. And now XM announces that lefty talker Randi Rhodes will return to the DC-based satellite broadcaster's lineup on 5/5. The new "Randi Rhodes Show," which is syndicated by Nova M Radio, will air weekdays from 3 PM to 6 PM on XM's liberal political talk channel, Air America (XM-167). Rhodes got canned from her Air America radio network gig (unrelated to XM's Air America channel) a few weeks ago after she made rude comments about Hillary Clinton and other Democrats at a public appearance in San Francisco.....

And the bidding war for Newsday gets more interesting;



Cablevision To Bid For Newsday - 4/29 - Reuters reports that Cablevision make a joint bid for Long Island newspaper Newsday that would match or top rival offers of about $580 million from media titans Rupert Murdoch and Mortimer Zuckerman. Cablevision is considering a bid with Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer newspaper. Kushner approached Cablevision a couple of weeks ago about making a joint bid to buy Newsday from Tribune Company. Newsday is for sale at a time when newspapers are commanding low prices because of shrinking advertising sales and declining profits. Still, it has provoked a bidding war between News Corporation chief Murdoch and New York Daily News owner Zuckerman, who want to give advertisers a way to reach wealthy residents on Long Island and to cut printing costs....

I'd go with civic duty...



Actually, before I gave up on the stream today, I heard Thom telling a caller..."call your local democratic party office, they'd be glad to have you! Go to a meeting! Take over!"



Well, as a "returning Democrat" (I switched back from 'unenrolled' yesterday, for those of you that might have missed it), I suppose I ought to be doing something, yes?



Although unlike the Senator from Connecticut, I did tend to caucus with the Democrats even as a Libertarian...

My brother took me to the Harley store when I was 12. I almost dropped one of them because they were too heavy. I have the distinct impression that would still happen now, and Big Bro isn't around to catch it.

I was gonna recommend a Vespa for Starling. Lots of people have them around here, but I don't think they're freeway friendly. A smaller motorcycle would be cool, but be prepared to get pulled over when the cops think you're an out of control teen! This happened to a friend of mine in high school. He looked like a sixth grader on that thing. Good times.

Yay. Starling likes the Vespa! They're really cute. I've seen more golf carts on the neighborhood streets, too. I'm not too sure how legal they are, but what the hell. You can charge the battery at home. In the Palm Springs area, they have golf cart lanes - tres groovy. My uncle had a blast. Especially nice in the summer because you don't have to get in a boiling hot car.

From the Marc Maron e-mail;



People that like me-



If you are in the DC area I will be at the DC Improv this week, Weds thru Sun, April 30 thru May 4. Come on down. Feel the funny pain. I'll also be hosting American Afternoons on Air America Radio next Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, May 6, 8 and 9. That's Randi's old time slot and it only goes out to a few places now, NYC and others, but its on XM as well, I believe, whatever, that's where I'll be on those days, 3-6PM ET, so check in.



Love,

Maron




Just in time for XM to switch to Randi. So, for three days I can listen to Maron on WWRL or Randi on XM. I guess it's either feast or famine.

Well, I know why I have been feeling this low level of ill-ease since I've gotten back from points north. I thought it was being twitchy about the economy, the price of gas and rice and things of this nature. No, I am wrong, it is Newt! Newt is going to be at the Barnes and Noble near the Casa de Mondo. Tomorrow. I am feeling the evil, negative Newt vibes already. So any suggestions for the Q&A besides the obvious ones about his serial adultery.

How will bringing back the economic policies of the gilded age insure that everyone will have an opportunity when there was no sizable middle class until after the New Deal?

Ah, the Hawks and the Celtics have a history going back to 1957 (St. Louis Hawks, then).



I think we've had their number for a looooooong time.

I'm not feeling KO tonight. I think I shall retire to the sleep chamber and read some more of Greg Palst's hilarious Armed Madhouse.

They did beat the Cavs tonight forcing a Game 6.



This is actually the first year since 1987 that neither New York area NBA franchise made the playoffs.
