Re: Pope Francis Says Trickle-Down Economics ?Has Neve r Been Confirmed By The Facts?

http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2013/11/26/2997451/pope-francis-trickle/
"Pope Francis condemned trickle-down economics and the world of inequality
and exclusion it fosters in the first apostolic exhortation of his papacy:
Capitalism, of course, has lifted standards of living across the globe. But in an unequal system, the more affluent can exploit low-income workers without sharing in the profit. The first quarter of 2013 saw American workers increasing their productivity, but their wages fell 3.8 percent, the largest hourly pay drop in the 65 years of keeping that statistic. Meanwhile, CEO salaries reached record highs of $9.7 million in 2012."
********** FIRST OF ALL, I find it disgusting that the left tries to remove the word GOD from their charter, and then tries to use the pope as a poster child for reelection.
ITS SIIICKKK!!!!
SECOND OF ALL...mr POPE....JESUS..you know the guy who created the papacy, the guy who installed the first pope said "give to cesear that which is cesears, and give to GOD that which is GODS..when asked about taxes and money.
So.... It would seem the Pope has no place mentioning reagan, or economics at all.
BESIDES...MR POPE...over and over in both testaments GOD makes it very clear, its bad to have what you need, its bad to be rich by any standards. JESUS preached "leave all you have behind and follow me". GOD says over and over, when bad times come...rejoice. But this pope is saying all should have more wealth...is he the antichrist? WTF?
So here we are, after maybe 10,000 years of known culture, and NOTHING has lifted the common man up like our financial system. Is it perfect...no. Is it good....no. Is it the best thing going...HELL YES! Does the pope have a viable alternative....no. The POPE from what I read(which is unfair since jb filters it) is condoning communism. Communism is a failed experiment. More people have suffered under communism than anything else. Besides, in guadaloupe 100 years ago MARY appeared to three children and thru them warned the world of communism, and how it must be stopped. The POPE sees this as a lagit shrine.
So I'm confused? Here we have a nutcase liberal, citing the POPE that republican economics is bad, we need to change to communism or socialism, as if the world hasn't tried many times before.
My advice to the pope is forget about American economics, or ipods, or whatever, and concentrate on the war in SYRIA, the danger to ISREAL, aids, countries that are athiests, countries that dont have freedom of religion, tribal murder in ruwanda, etc...
Now im ok with him commenting on us worshipping money, thats one of his duties, to guide the rest of us spiritually, just not financially.
this is ridiculous.

Despite your rambling there vinny I kind of agree here. We have one of the wealthiest cults on the planet,a cult that has spent it's entire existence pushing the idea the poverty is good for you,a cult that uses violence to e nforce that view now saying words that seem to indicate a change.

s

Really??

Then why do the top 5% have as much wealth as the bottom 50% Why is one of the largest stores on the planet having in house food drives to feed it's workers,workers that they don't pay enough to buy food,even at the cheap prices of the store they slave at.

Yes, tithe more,so we,the church,can set up more soup kitchens

Religion IS communisim

sm More people have suffered and are suffering from the effects of religion th an any other form of government in history.It is one of the most socially/i ntellectually destructive things humans have yet created.

The communist "experiment" never happened,it was hijacked by tyrants who be came the new ruling class,and they made it easier to repress,nothing much c hanged.

BS,you should at least know about the myths you want to reference

Nothing new there

is

Israel in part of the problem

Yes, I want you to list another group who lost 6 million people from just one persecution like the Holocaust.
"Judaism seem to me to be philosophy of victimhood,they seem to feel that everybody picks on them and have just about from inception,including their God,just read their holy books. That not to say that there have not been some very serious episodes of totally vicious unacceptable persecution."
You don't know jack shit about Judaism. The fact is you hate religion and you have made the clear here for years. That's your right but it's also my right to tell you to fuck off and die with your bullshit about not understanding why Jews are arrogant. One reason some Jews are arrogant is because they have to deal with religious haters like you. Israel is meant for Jews. If you don't like that fact it's just to damn bad because there isn't a thing you're going to do about it. Jews were tired of being persecuted and tossed out of every country they got very successful in and they wanted their own homeland.

*********** Im sorry I missed this jew hating post. Iv'e always wondered why people hate jews? I dont hate jews, nor do I know anybody who hates jews. I have never heard a person say jew hate. ive heard jew jokes, usually making fun of them and money. I never got it. They are immigrants, money is life to them? As far as them being arrogant, pffft, I think all of you above the mason dixon line are arrogant pigs? But not jews, its a hollywood steriotype? They got murdered, then kicked out of europe, so they asked for isreal. Nobody wanted it, it was a barron desert. The arabs traded to the UN for land, and isreal is lagit. In the meantime, they kicked the living shit out of anybody and everybody who fuxored with them. They paid with blood for that land. Now they have the highest per capa of college grads and veterans. Very honorable as a people to hold those 2 records. Who do people hate them?
friggen weird. prolly goes back to fighting over a water hole.

Jew Hating,really! Oh I get it,one is not allowed to question Jewish persec ution,they are the kings of persecution, nobody else has ever had it as bad . If you had actually read, and comprehended, what I wrote then you would hav e noticed that all I said was that Jews don't have a lock on persecution,th ey don't have a lock on genocide,and when asked to point out others, I did, and was promptly ignored. I just pointed out that historically the Jews are not the only ones having a claim to that hunk of desert, there are several more tribes,going back mi llennia,claiming all or some of that land,I said the Jewish claim is no mor e valid than anybody else's.
The point of the posts,which is always the point of my posts like this, is nobody is more important than anybody else.I don't care how much money you have,or power,or education. The point is being a Jew doesn't make you bette r than being a Muslim,being employed doesn't make you better than someone w ho snuck across the boarder looking to pick tomatoes,or looking for social services from the government,being born in the US doesn't make you better t han someone born in Nth Korea. Nobody seems willing to look as these things,nobody is willing to see that we are all pretty much equal and luck or circumstance,often mostly beyond o ur control determines our lot in life.
Doesn't matter,I pretty much expect nothing but invective from people who a re unable,or unwilling,to think critically,who may have their life mytholog y questioned,it's just normal.
