    I love it. The cognitive dissonance doesn't get resolved, it turns to hate.

    It's a terrible year for some RWs. First Mandela is honored for his life's achievement by dozens of dignitaries and millions of people from around the world. Then, the current Pope is given Time Person of the Year. It's definitely not a good year to be a foaming at the mouth right wing partisan hack.

    - Look at their complains:

    OMGZ Obama took a pictz!
    OMGZ Obama shook Castro's hand!
    OMGZ the pope is mean to capitalists!
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    And I think the Pope, who's extremely educated, and has a large staff of extremely educated people working for him, isn't think either one of two stupid things.
    I do bash communism. Maybe the pope is not stupid but he sure did say something stupid. Why bash something that does not even exist unless you are implying it does?

    Here's a bit of homework for you Sawyer.

    Quoting his own words in your post, show us all exactly what he said was stupid.

    Break it down line by line if you have to.

    If you can demonstrate why you think it's stupid, I'll respect whatever you have to say.

    Show me the quotes where Francis bashed capitalism and America.

    Of course he didn't single out America, but if the shoe fits.......... Anyway he was critical of unchecked/unregulated capitalism that preys on the weak and benefits the elite. Of course all nations that are capitalistic societies have regulations, he just knows what all but the gullible and those that know better but it's not in their best interist to acknowledge, that they (regulations) are not always enforced.

    Simple really, two words. "Unfettered capitalism". Where exactly does that exist? It does not exist so WTF was he talking about?

    Is it really all news to you that corporate America is in control. The mega rich have historically stated that given control of the money they could care less who writes the laws, and surely you know what they mean by that.
