One year, a while back, I decided to wear a Jesse Ventura campaign button during the Minnesota State Fair.
I like Jesse's logical talk and sensible reasoning at that time (as I like much of the same from Donald Trump).
And, guess what? Jesse Ventura actually became a Minnesota Governor!
The horribly-counterproductive rhetoric of some supposedly-GOP-oriented "conservative" advisors advocating the "fixing" of what they mis-term "entitlement" (as implied "welfare") Social Security and Medicare -- by cutting Grandma's monthly Social Security checks and raising the Retirement Age, along with nominating inferior-gender-feminist Migraine-Michele Bachmann as the GOP Presidential nominee -- would almost insure for certainty that Barack Hussein Obama would get re-elected in the 2012 Election....despite Obama's partnering with Planned Parentlessness (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity) plus the Pelosi-Reid-Frank-caused National Debt and back-ending us into armed conflict (with NATO-leadership excuse) against Libya's Khaddafi.
For example, one "conservative" talkshow host inferred that Migraine-Michele sort of blew her chances to become the President of the United States by the fact that she was against the recently-passed-and-signed Debt-Reduction Deal (similar to inferior-gender feminist and mophead-at-times Sarah Palin chiding Mitt Romney for also not signing on) and that she had put forth no plan of her own or anyone else's to adequate replace it under the present mixed-political-parties circumstance.
Practically all network-media commentators (including Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, etc.) have NOT (to my knowledge) ever publicly disqualified Migraine-Michele because she is a female candidate (perhaps in consultation with irrationalize-true-Scripture-word-meanings-away rabbi advisors, affiliated sponsorship hosting by feminist-sexist hierarchy of Salem Communications, and acquiesing to popularity-maintenance-required, commercials-driven-monies dependent upon the continuing allegiance of their chauvenist-sexist TV and radio audiences)....and thus they have never specifically disqualified her (nor similar-inferior-gender Sarah Palin) on yet-viable-and-obviously-still-applicable Biblical grounds of:
Ecclesiastes 7:25 I turned my mind to know and to search out and to seek wisdom and the sum of things, and to know the wickedness of folly and the foolishness which is madness.
26 And I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her.
27 Hey, this is what I found, says the Preacher, adding one thing to another to find the sum,
28 which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
Isaiah 3:9 Their partiality witnesses against them; they proclaim their sin like Sodom, they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil upon themselves.
10 Tell the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their works.
11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for what his hands have done shall be done to him.
12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, your leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths.
13 The LORD has taken His place to contend, He stands to judge His people.
Nahum 3:12 All your fortresses are like fig trees with first-ripe figs--if shaken they fall into the mouth of the eater.
Nahum 3:13 Hey, your troops are women in your midst. The gates of your land are wide open to your foes; fire has devoured your bars.
First Corinthians 14:33 As in all the churches of the saints,
34 the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says.
35 If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
36 What! Did the word of God originate with you, or are you the only ones it has reached?
37 If any one thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that what I am writing to you is a command of the Lord.
38 If any one does not recognize this, he is not recognized.
First Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.
7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in decent apparel, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam (a scenario occurring before "the church" ever came on the scene, and extending way beyond the limited scope of "the church" - whatever that is) was formed first, then Eve (mother of ALL living - not merely "those inside 'the church'");
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
First Peter 3:1 Likewise you wives, be submissive to your husbands, so that some, though they do not obey the word, may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives,
2 when they see your reverent and chaste behavior.
3 Let not yours be the outward adorning with plaiting of hair, decoration of gold, and wearing of fine clothing,
4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable jewel of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
5 So once the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves and were submissive to their husbands,
6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are now her children if you do right and let nothing terrify you.
7 Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker sex, since you are joint heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.
About the no-solution suggestion to raise the Retirement Age, note verses 3 and 7 as to Divinely-mandated cutoff age-ranges for differention appropriation:
Leviticus 27:1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "Say to the people of Israel, When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your valuation,
3 then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary [THE "Gold Standard"].
4 If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels.
5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
6 If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver.
7 And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
8 And if a man is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall bring the person before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him who vowed the priest shall value him."
Such an age of 60 is verified in the New Testament:
First Timothy 5:9 Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband
There is a new influx of Social Security recipients who cannot wait until age 66 to collect Social Security benefits. They are not old dinosaurs with lavish RV motorhomes winterbirding down in Arizona or Florida and living off 20-to-30-year pensions, but instead grandchildren-occupied babyboomers having rather misfortunate lengthy histories of being laid off or fired for company overseas relocation or downsizing, and/or because of demonic prejudicial and discriminatory causes (relating to being adverse against homosexual sensitivity training and tolerance; beset and besieged by confusing and sexually-harassing, misattired, snit feminists exercising wannabe-patriarchal, belligerantly-bossy, chauvenistic authority; self-seeking blacks getting pseudo-religious racist quota preferences over whites, etc.)...which somewhat worn-out babyboomers do not have the financial nor bodily stamina to start up huge-corporation businesses, nor desire to dangerously gamble via the treacherous ups-and-downs Stock Market as a non-stable funding replacement.
Dependence upon government benefits, which beneficiaries have earned (and thus which cannot be rightful termed: "welfare") is the only viable source of thankfully-non-taxed sustenance for such impoverished babyboomers (who know and can apportion such monies for their own particularly unique needs far better than one-size-fits-all cold-and-heartlessly-legalistic bureaucrats) along with older crippled and handicapped seniors (especially those in hospice) who are even more incapable of "earning a living on their own."
Perhaps multiple-incomes-affluent republicrat author and husband-of-wealthy-college-professor Medved and his yuppie ilk do not really understand nor appreciate but arrogantly ignore such reality with their proud and smug pie-in-the-sky demands imposed against others for fairy-tale-hallucinatory self-sustenance.
To and of such, who in bigoted bias do not submit to FDR's provisional Social-Security and Lyndon Johnson's Medicare plans for the elderly, the LORD says:
Exodus 30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when you give the LORD's offering to make atonement for yourselves.
Deuteronomy 15:11 For the poor will never cease out of the land; therefore I command you, You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in the land.
Jeremiah 27:8 "But if any nation or kingdom will not serve this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and put its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, I will punish that nation with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence," says the LORD, "until I have consumed it by his hand."
Should the poor be deprived of monthly Social Security checks and Medicare reimbursement?
Job 5:16 So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts her mouth.
Job 24:4 They thrust the poor off the road; the poor of the earth all hide themselves.
Psalm 10:2 In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor; let them be caught in the schemes which they have devised.
12:5 "Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now arise," says the LORD, "I will place him in the safety for which he longs."
14:6 You would confound the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge.
37:14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows, to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those who walk uprightly;
41:1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Blessed is he who considers the poor! The LORD delivers him in the day of trouble;
72:4 May He defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor!
72:12 For He delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper.
109:16 For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted to their death.
112:9 He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever; his horn is exalted in honor.
113:7 He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap
Proverbs 14:21 He who despises his neighbor is a sinner, but happy is he who is kind to the poor.
16:19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud.
17:5 He who mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.
18:23 The poor use entreaties, but the rich answer roughly.
19:17 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his deed.
21:13 He who closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself cry out and not be heard.
22:7 The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
22:9 He who has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
22:16 He who oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to want.
28:8 He who augments his wealth by interest and increase gathers it for him who is kind to the poor.
28:27 He who gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
29:7 A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge.
29:14 If a king judges the poor with equity his throne will be established for ever.
30:14 There are those whose teeth are swords, whose teeth are knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, the needy from among men.
31:9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, maintain the rights of the poor and needy.
Romans 10:3 For, being ignorant of the [help the poor] righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their [anti-Social-Security-and-Medicare] own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.
Pertaining to eldercare, residual-expense monthly bills are not absolved by them becoming financially obligated to Visiting Angels.
Yours truly has heard a lot of interviews (lamentably hosted at times by despicable anti-Christian talkshow-host revilers on the so-called "liberal left") questioning Independent Senator Bernie Sanders.
Every time I have heard Senator Sanders, I have been refreshed to hear someone who talks truth -- who wants to stifle and stop the greedy shenanigans of wealthy old barons who suppress development of electric vehicles, who irresponsibly bid up oil prices on the stock market thus causing gasoline prices at the pump to soar.
Impressed I have been with the Senator's prudent acknowledgement of the dire need for preserving Social Security and Medicare for those seriously dependent upon it and who will soon become so -- without the mindless blattering of so-called "right-wing conservatives" who postulate mischievous "fixing," tinkering, and ultimately depleting it for the sake of allegedly "funding and saving the [purportedly-"bankrupted"] program for future generations," and instead allocating [excessive] "revenues" (i.e. taxation) for expensive military-supplied warmonguering excursions against the benign sand dunes of Iraq and especially Afghanistan:
Luke 22:38 And they said, "Look, Lord, here are two swords." And He said to them, "It is enough."
Not detected in Senator Sanders is an isolationist inclination that otherwise-sensible freedom-against-government-intrusion Ron Paul tends to portray, nor including Israel as being on par with antisemitic arabs in proposed cessation of foreign aid.
Romneycare, signed by then-Governor Romney as Ted Kennedy gleefully looked on, has a kind of noxious-because-it-does-not-work Marxist-socialist class-warfare stink similar to forced-inclusion Obamascare (i.e. The Unaffordable Death-"Care" Act) because of which "the rich" have to pay their own medical care while the poor (many times injured or ill because of their own irresponsibilty-caused accidents) are reimbursed.
Who knows how much green-energy-promotional Pawlenty bought into federal Obamascare regulations because of bribery-like federal subsidies and funding he got for Minnesota from such?
It is not known if Senator Sanders is up to becoming United States President, or even if he is willing to run as a 2012 Presidential candidate as an Independent....nor how much the anti-Social-Security/anti-Medicare Constitution Party would siphon off would-have-benefitted-Sanders-and-not-Obama votes.
What IS probable is that if the distinguished Senator did so, he would likely share at least 33% of the nationwide vote in 2012, with Obama getting up to 33% and Migraine-Michele Bachmann also getting up to the remaining 33%.
It would send tallies-counting MSNBC, CNN, and FOX into a bizarre and phenomenal tizzy!
I know that if it was a choice between Mombasa-Kenya-born Barack "Barry Soetoro" Obama (who appointed abortion-choice feminists Sonja Sotomayor and fake-birth-certificate-support-conspiring Elena Kagan), and fake-"christian" Migraine-Michele Bachmann.....and the Honorable Senator Bernie Sanders....well....thank God it's still a secret ballot, come November 2012.
Murderess Casey, on the run, might become a crackerjack undercover missing-child contract killer to compensate for her sordid employment resume.
Dr Drew, on cable TV, is clearly captivated by the Latter-Day-Saints Polygamy-Case Trial (or is it instead the Underage-Victims Multiple-Rapes Trial?).
Drew should realize that mutually-agreed-upon truly-consentual marriage (and consequential sex therein) is acceptable (though for those under age 20 perhaps not advisable according to 1st Corinthians 7:36 - KJ21, JPS,)...instead of consentual OR non-consentual fornication or adultery on the part of either or both perpetrator.
NO human female of any age should be forced (whether implicitly or explicitly) to marry nor fornicate against their will:
Genesis 24:58 And they called Rebekah, and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She said, "I will go."
Philemon 1:14 ....but I preferred to do nothing without your consent in order that your goodness might not be by compulsion but of your own free will.
