|May Day Is Not Communism|
"... when you begin to ask that question, you are raising a question about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I'm simply saying that more and more, we've got to begin to ask questions about the whole society. We are called upon to help the discouraged beggars in life's marketplace. But one day we must come to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. It means that questions must be raised. And you see, my friends, when you deal with this you begin to ask the question, "Who owns the oil?" You begin to ask the question, "Who owns the iron ore?" You begin to ask the question, "Why is it that people have to pay water bills in a world that's two-thirds water?" These are words that must be said.Now, don't think you have me in a bind today. I'm not talking about communism. What I'm talking about is far beyond communism.
He took his dialectics, but he left out his idealism and his spiritualism. And he went over to a German philosopher by the name of Feuerbach, and took his materialism and made it into a system that he called "dialectical materialism." I have to reject that.
What I'm saying to you this morning is communism forgets that life is individual. Capitalism forgets that life is social.
These are the triple evils that are interrelated. And if you will let me be a preacher just a little bit. One day, one night, a juror came to Jesus and he wanted to know what he could do to be saved. Jesus didn't get bogged down on the kind of isolated approach of what you shouldn't do. Jesus didn't say, "Now Nicodemus, you must stop lying."He didn't say, "Nicodemus, now you must not commit adultery." He didn't say, "Now Nicodemus, you must stop cheating if you are doing that." He didn't say, "Nicodemus, you must stop drinking liquor if you are doing that excessively."
And the kingdom of brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of communism nor the antithesis of capitalism, but in a higher synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis that combines the truths of both. Now, when I say questioning the whole society, it means ultimately coming to see that the problem of racism, the problem of economic exploitation, and the problem of war are all tied together.
He said something altogether different, because Jesus realized something basic : that if a man will lie, he will steal. And if a man will steal, he will kill. So instead of just getting bogged down on one thing, Jesus looked at him and said, "Nicodemus, you must be born again."
In other words, "Your whole structure must be changed."

Too my Republican name calling friends. Did you get that? the Socialist communist argument is the biggest crock of BS and it will fail. We reject Communism or Socialism as well as the failed experiment of Capitalism
FROM OCCUPY WALL STREET...
"...While American corporate media has focused on yet another stale election between Wall Street-financed candidates, Occupy has been organizing something extraordinary: the first truly nationwide General Strike in U.S. history. Building on the international celebration of May Day, past General Strikes in U.S. cities like Seattle and Oakland, the recent May 1st Day Without An Immigrant demonstrations, the national general strikes in Spain this year, and the on-going student strike in Quebec, the Occupy Movement has called for A Day Without the 99% on May 1st, 2012. This in and of itself is a tremendous victory. For the first time, workers, students, immigrants, and the unemployed from 135 U.S. cities will stand together for economic justice. ..."

ONE LAST THING...
|Conservative Or Progressive|
"..."I don't think there should be an ad about that," Huffington said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "I think it's one thing to celebrate the fact that they did such a great job (with television specials). All that is perfectly legitimate. But to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do."..."CBS News
Ms. Huffington is a progressive like myself yet she flippantly has the tendency too be very hypocritical and Republican on some points. If the President does anything too Centrist she cries he is not progressive enough. If the President moves too the Left it isn't Left enough. Some people ought to have the wisdom too be silent and just wince in disapproval or nod in agreement.
In other words, Arianna please shut your Sh** talker.
Tomorrow we will celebrate rightly and loudly and proudly along with President Obama and the American people. The killing of a Terrorist and mass Murderer Osama Bin Laden on the current POTUS watch. President Barack H. Obama.
more too come
