It is probably unwise to say this loudly in the United States, but

    • Rev. Ted Pike

    • The Jewish Encyclopedia (Socialism, p. 418) frankly points  out that "Jews have been prominently identified with the modern Socialist  movement from its very inception." "Scientific socialism,"  or what we call communism, says the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia in its  article on socialism, "originated in the combination of Jewish Messianic  feeling with German philosophy" 1 Marx, of course, was Jewish. But,  just as important, Jews at all levels, from high financiers like the Warburgs,  Schiffs and Rothschilds to rugged revolutionaries like Trotsky, Kamenev,  Sverdlov and Zinoviev, made the success of communism possible.

    • Jews Tell Us Communism was Jewish

    • It was at this time that Lenin himself declared capital  punishment for any Russian who criticized Jews or identified Jewish leaders  with Russian names as Jewish.

    • pogroms

    • It is probably unwise to say this loudly in the United  States, but

    • U.S. State Department Report, Foreign Relations, 1918,  Russia, Vol. 11, p. 240: 
        
      Fifty percent of Soviet government in each town consists  of Jews of the worst type, many of whom are anarchists.

    • Extract of Report from the Netherlands Minister at Petrograd  on the 6th of September, 1918, forwarded by Sir M. Findlay, at Christiana,  to Mr. Balfour: 
        
      I consider that the immediate suppression of Bolshevism  is the greatest issue now before the world, not even excluding the war  that is still raging, and unless, as above stated, Bolshevism is nipped  in the bud immediately, it is bound to spread in one form or another over  Europe and the whole world, as it is organized and worked by Jews who have  no nationality, and whose one object is to destroy for their own ends the  existing order of things.

    • Quoting from the American Hebrew of September 8, 1920:

    • The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish  brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal is to  create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a  way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction,  and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and  physical forces, became a reality all over the world.

No, Bernie Sanders is not going to bankrupt America to the tune of $18 trillion – The Washington Post

    • over the next decade (from 2015-2024), America will spend a total of $42 trillion on health care.

    • This is money that you and I and everyone else spends. We spend it in a variety of ways: through our health-insurance premiums, through the reduced salaries we get if our employers pick up part or all of the cost of those premiums, through our co-pays and deductibles, and through our taxes that fund Medicare, Medicaid, ACA subsidies, and the VA health care system. We’re already paying about $10,000 a year per capita for health care.

    • If I told you I could cut your health insurance premiums by $1,000 and increase your taxes by $1,000, you wouldn’t have lost $1,000. You’d be in the same place you are now.

    • There’s something else to keep in mind: every single-payer system in the world, and there are many of them of varying flavors, is cheaper than the American health care system. Every single one.

    • Jeb Bush recently proposed a tax cut plan whose 10-year cost could be as high as $3.4 trillion.

    • If you knew that the average family in the middle of the income distribution would get less than $1,000 from Jeb’s plan, while the average family in the top one percent would get a tax cut of over $80,000, then you’d have a better sense of whether it’s a good or bad idea.

“In this World You Will Have Trouble” — Welcome to Rowan County – AlbertMohler.com

    • Many of these questions defy a simplistic answer.

    • How would a faithful congregation advise Mrs. Davis to fulfill her Christian commitment? Should she remain in office and refuse to issue marriage licenses? Should she resign her office? Exhausting appeals to a higher court, should she now obey Judge Bunning’s order? Should she defy that order and go to jail?

    • There is no automatically right answer to these questions. Each can be rooted in Christian moral argument, and any one of these options might be argued as right under the circumstances.

    • It is very revealing that many of those who are celebrating Judge Bunning’s decision to send Kim Davis to jail and who are now asserting their absolute commitment to the rule of law are the very same people who made the opposite argument when it served their purposes. That argument, taken at face value, would have meant no civil rights movement — and no gay rights movement.

    • During the Reformation, both Martin Luther and John Calvin affirmed what was later defined as the “doctrine of lesser magistrates” which held that the tyrannical dictates of a higher authority could be defied by a lesser government authority who acted on conscience in defense of what is right. Lutheranism even added this doctrine to its confessional basis in the Magdeburg Confession (1550). 

    • There is no easy way out of these questions. Add democratic self-government to the mix and the questions only get more difficult and perplexing

Hope, Economic Hope (Co-Ops)

    • Right now in the United States, in the old decaying Rust Belt, where industries are collapsing, they’re being replaced, to a certain extent, by worker owned and partially worker-managed enterprises.

    • one of the major US unions, the steel workers, has now entered into some kinds of interactions with Mondragon to try to work out ways to develop Mondragon-type system in the old industrial sections of the US and revive them on the basis of worker-ownership and community-ownership in control

Remember that every time you go the extra mile, you place someone under obligation to you.

When you do something to or for another, whether your deeds are good or bad, people feel compelled to “retaliate” in kind. If you are a kind and decent person, you can expect to be treated well in return. If you use others for your own advantage without giving anything in return, you will soon find that they have little use for you. People like working for and with positive, considerate people. Start now to develop the habit of going the extra mile.

Permanent link to this post: Remember that every time you go the extra mile, you place someone under obligation to you.

 

Matt 5:41 Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two.
