    Jesus said a man should reap what he sows, not what other people sow. And I stand by the rest of what was in the article.
    Actually Paul said it in Galatians....so.maybe before you lecture someone get the quote right.

    Oh and the Bible says something about lying and in fact you can't seem to help yourself in doing so.

    Tsk tsk...

    You're the one who needs help understanding the Bible.

    "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16

    And who is God? Jesus, who inspires all scripture, including Galatians.

    Glad to help you out, sport!

    p.s. Like I said, redistribution of wealth is a self-serving liberal scheme centered in greed and covetousness for other people's money, rather than exercising personal initiative and responsibility and earning it themselves. The lack of personal initiative and responsibility are hallmarks of the liberal left, which is why they want a government nanny to take care of them.

    So you admit Jesus didn't say it. Good for you....but of course you don't openly admit it. And you repeat your lie. TSK TSK TSK

    The big difference here is that I'm offering evidence and you aren't.

    So, people thought that republicans of congress, and that republicans in general were wealthy, not so, according to this report.
    You are late on this one. Back in 2012 there was a post about the people in congress are all pretty wealthy due to investments.

    I've already googled and given the links. That you remain unaware of the stats has become of no further interest.

    Is your intent to ignore my question to you? which of the two parties do you think is not benefiting the rich?

    Guys like these are the money changers that Jesus flipped out on.
    Jesus did not have a problem with those that had money. He took issue with those that loved money over all else. Money is not evil. The love of money is. I have met loving, giving people from both extremes of the fiscal spectrum. I have also met nasty, greedy people from each extreme as well.
