Timothy Geithner admits that his boss believes that you exist to finance him and his fellow statists

"Government programs" is a euphemism for "Vote for us, and we'll give you other people's stuff. If they complain, we'll call them 'racist,' 'corporatist,' 'greedy,' or -- gasp! -- 'conservative'!"

Liberals would be much more honest if they'd just admit: "We're oligarchists, and we deserve to rule over you, slaves."

Geithner's admission is a surprise only to those who haven't been paying attention to the president "ready to rule from Day 1." From here:
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the House Small Business Committee on Wednesday that the Obama administration believes taxes on small business must increase so the administration does not have to “shrink the overall size of government programs.”

Another dishonest apology for Socialism

In response to an attack on the plain truth about Socialism at the ironically-named Rational Revolution:
The "rebuttal" above is intellectually dishonest. Ad hominems? Tu quoques? Class envy? Biblical commands spoken to individuals applied to political systems?

The ultimate minority is the individual; if any one's rights are violated, then no one's rights are safe. Socialism is evil because it makes the individual subservient to a select few and -- in our case -- the majority who elect them. Rather than government existing to protect each person's God-given, unalienable rights, the individual exists as a resource to be exploited by the state.

Does the individual exist to provide power and position to politicians, or do their power and position exist to protect our rights? Who knows better how to spend your wealth, you or a politician? Who deserves your property: whomever you choose -- your children, for example -- or a stranger?

There's a word for consuming the fruits of another's labor against their will: Slavery.

The meaning of "day" in Genesis

There is no room for compromise between the Word of Christ and falsehood, regardless of whatever form the devil's lie happens to be taking at the moment.

A nice summary of why we should just take God at His word. "The Meaning of 'Day' in Genesis":
What can we conclude concerning the length of the 'days' of creation? The usage of the word 'day,' with a number, means a 24-hour period. The absence of the article does not alter that meaning. Further, the use of 'evening' and 'morning' indicates that normal time is meant in Genesis 1. God, Himself, said that the creation took only six days. We also must ask ourselves, did Moses and God deceive us by using the word 'day,' when it really was a long period of time? If our answer is yes, then we should not use the Bible for any of our beliefs. For, if God can deceive us concerning the events of creation, He might have done that in regards to the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord. The bottom line is that we then can have no confidence in God's Word, if the long-day view is held. It is far better to believe God at His Word, and take the creation days as 24-hour days.

Impossible Islamophobia

. . . Nearly one and one-half millennia of slavery, rape, and slaughter in Allah's name.

. . . 80% of American -- not Pakistani, not Saudi Arabian, not Iranian, but American -- mosques teach jihad/Islamic supremacism.

. . . More than seventeen thousand documented jihad attacks since 9/11 alone.

. . . Islam's "Ideal Man" Muhammad -- Allah's "beautiful pattern of conduct" for those who want to please him -- preached and practiced genocide, pedophilia, rape, slavery, torture, mutilation, theft, extortion, wife-beating, polygyny, religious and gender apartheid, deceit, blasphemy, and treason, warning his devotees that "Allah made me do it, and you will too, or else!"

Pointing out simple facts regarding a murderous, malevolent, totalitarian ideology is neither phobic nor intolerant. It is highly rational and moral.

We are in merely the latest phase of an ancient and existential struggle, Allah's War Against Humanity.
