Imagine never having to worry about medical bills or going bankrupt, losing everything

People need to understand that their taxes going to pay for their Medicare is so much better than paying taxes and getting no health care.

Imagine never having to worry about medical bills or going bankrupt, losing everything.

Is there a value to that?

31% of White Evangelicals Say They’ll Support Trump No Matter What He Does

31% of White Evangelicals Say They’ll Support Trump No Matter What He Does

It’s not surprising that white evangelicals overwhelmingly support him. They don’t care about — or are willing to overlook — his affairs, scandals, inhumanity, ignorance, racism, and blatant pandering. It’s also not a shock that non-religious people and Black Protestants mostly disapprove of him.

But look at the far ends of the bars. They represent whether those groups are open to changing their minds.

 

While 75% of white evangelicals approve of Trump’s performance in office, 31% of them say there’s literally nothing he could do to lose their support. He really could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue without it making a difference to his base.

All of that plays out in another question, too: “Is Trump encouraging white supremacists?” The correct answer is yes. The white evangelical answer is “What? I can’t hear you. Who cares. Judges. Judges. Gimme more judges.” Check out, though, just how aligned Black Protestants are with the non-religious:

There was a time when I thought white evangelicals supported Trump because Mike Pence was his running mate, and he’s one of them. I was wrong about that. It’s obvious now that Pence’s Christianity was never as powerful a draw as Trump’s open bigotry. If Pence was booted from the ticket, I suspect very little would change for Trump in terms of his support from those same Christians.

Hate much Christian politicians?

NJ Mayor Refuses to Resign After Delivering Anti-LGBTQ Sermon in Church

NJ Mayor Refuses to Resign After Delivering Anti-LGBTQ Sermon in Church

He complained about what would happen if homosexuality entered schools:

… I got a phone call this week that the Supreme Court of the state of New Jersey just heard a case where it’s now legal, they say it’s legal, for a brother and a sister to marry each other in the state of New Jersey. A brother and a sister! Incest! They have lived together for years, and they heard this case, and the Supreme Court ruled in their favor. They say the next thing coming up is a father and a daughter.

When you let homosexuality in, it opens the door to complete perversion and the church has to — we have to do our job and stand up. Stand up to it.

That’s… a lie. He’s referring to an article that first appeared on a satirical website. (It’s not surprising that a guy who accepts the Bible as true can’t tell fact from fiction.)

Then, referring to how the new law was meant to help kids get comfortable in their own skin, McKelvey remarked, “Well, when you start teaching them the confused stuff, they don’t know what skin they have!” So LGBTQ people are all apparently confused.

Russia Is Using Tulsi Gabbard and to a Former US Double Agent, That’s Clear
October 21, 2019 To A Former U.S. Double Agent, Tulsi Gabbard Is Being Used By The Russians | OPINION Much has been made of Hillary Clinton’s implication that Tulsi Gabbard is someone Russia has “their eye on.” While Gabbard has responded with claims that she is the subject of a coordinated smear campaign by Clinton, she has steadfastly refused to renounce any Russian support she may be receiving. As somebody who worked against Russian intelligence, I agree with Clinton’s assessment—Gabbard’s

This is what misogyny looks like in real life. The double standards used to judge Hillary Clinton were never about emails or security, it was always about attacking a woman of power for being a woman.
