    If you know anything about me, you know I’m glad that President Obama has been re-elected.  That said, please remember to be kind and generous and loving to Governor Romney and to our right-leaning brothers and sisters. 

    Jesus didn’t say “Love the people who think like you do, and f*ck the rest.”  No, Jesus said, “Love your enemies. I know it’s hard, but do it. Love your enemies and pray for them.”  So be the bigger person.  Be the gracious and generous one, because those are progressive values.  Be kind and loving, because those are Christian values. Thankfully, God doesn’t care whether we actually likeanybody, just that we love them, which is a good thing because it’s a lot easier to love than to like.

    Be joyful.  Be energized.  Be progressive.  Be prayerful.  And be loving.  Please.  This is what America needs us to be.

    Strongly agreed.

  2. Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home—but not for housing. They are strong for labor—but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights. They favor minimum wage—the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all—but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine—for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing—but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing—so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.

    Nope, there is nothing new under the sun.
