The Pope Just Called American Employers ‘Bloodsuckers’

I picked this up from a site called Addicting Info.   Maybe not so addicting.

They feature the Pope who apparently slammed American companies at a Vatican mass.  He told a story of an American worker he feels was exploited by the company she worked for.   It appears the Pope referred to the lady’s employer as “bloodsuckers.”

I am sure many employers could better compensate their employees in America as well as Argentina and even Italy.  I know many American employers who do a great job of managing and compensating their employees.  I worked for a great corporation in America who really did treat it’s employees well per compensation and benefits.

What I don’t get about the Addicting Info article is the following:

Now, we know how hard Republicans fight against basic health care for all. We also know how hard they fight against a living wage, but we hear little about pensions, unless it’s about companies stealing pensions from their employees. The Pope didn’t mention that “bloodsucking” tactic. The fact is, though, that Republicans don’t like pensions any more than they like healthcare or paid time off. They are doing their best to end them, whether it be public pensions or through destroying unions. Remind me, who are the Christians here?

… the concluding paragraph of the short article.   Does anyone notice anything missing here?  I know Republicans have a majority in Washington, D.C. but Republicans do not control or own all major corporations in America.   There are just as many Democrats who are officers and board members.  So, if companies are cheating on benefits and compensation, then there are as many Democrats involved as there Republicans.

Swaps Hijab for Hat

Muslim woman, fearing Islamophobia after Donald Trump’s big win, swaps hijab for hat.

Howida Tarabzooni, a proud Muslim, wore a hat instead of her hijab on Wednesday.

No, no, no, she has got it all wrong!   She will be working with and walking by the same people that she has been walking by and working with.  An election did not change the nature of the people she is around!More

Freedom 2

This is a great season to remember our heritage.  President Ronald Reagan spoke to the nation about freedom on June 15, 1985.   I believe he sincerely grasp for freedom for the most of the people when he addressed the nation on quotas.

Quotas certainly represents the thinking of the elites.  America was not established for the elites of any stripe.   America was established for the freedoms of ALL.

May be cherish our freedoms and stand guard  against their demise and own them.  May you experience your freedom today and every day you are blessed to reside in America or wherever you  live!

God bless America!   God bless us with freedom!

Islam vs Christianity

I appreciate James Kirk Wall (or Church Wall) of the Chicago Now site attempting to compare Christian extremism and Islamic extremism.

The page has a title: “Reason is a Virtue.”  I agree wholeheartedly with that statement.  That is not to say there are not mysteries in life but by and large we are more successful the more rational we are.

James titles the article: “American Christian Extremist Vs Islamic Extremist – Explain the difference” and I appreciate his efforts in the comparison.More
