So you’re probably thinking… Rio Grande Arts and Crafts Festival begins About The Author Tom Schamberger 100 Comments Geoff Gyro says: November 28, 2019 at 10:02 pm Christians for Trump?In the USA, 99% of Evangelicals support Donald Trump, the shallow, mean spirited, greedy, vindictive, childish, hothead President of the United States.The mind boggles. Do you think todays anti immigrant Christian conservatives would have time for a poor Middle Eastern refugee who spoke out against the piety of the rich, preached for pacifism, advocating for what was basically socialism, giving away their wealth and loving thy neighbor? Todays Christian conservatives in the USA would likely demonize Jesus as a woke, liberal, anti American socialist. I can hear them now. “Why would anyone listen to a poor refugee over our supreme leader, Donald Trump? Jesus sounds like a never Trumper communist paid by George Soros. He doesn’t even speak English! Probably a terrorist or worse, a Democrat.” If Jesus, Mary & Joseph came back today as refugees in America, would these hyper conservative Christians cage little baby Jesus in a detention center, label Joseph & Mary as undocumented, then deport them into a war zone? Or maybe as Trump suggested, aim low & just shoot them in the legs if they approach the border or fry them with an electric fence. After all, immigrants entering the USA are likely to be “terrorists, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, or freeloaders, looking for a handout.” These days, I have no doubt, a vulnerable, desperate refugee family like Jesus, Mary & Joseph would get more support and be welcomed in the Atheist community before being accepted by MAGA Christians. Agreed?

Introspection at best. Reply sanjuansteve says: November 29, 2019 at 2:25 am Despite the title of the book Fear, I think we're neither discussing the properly framed problem, nor the big picture solutions yet. #FearIsTheProblem. Fear is the root of bullying, misogyny, homophobia, racism, bigotry and greed. Fear allows people to mentally wall-off their own empathy to virtually zero. Three of the biggest generators of fear are 1) out-of-control capitalism and historically unsustainable and exponentially growing wealth and income inequality levels (if you lose your job you might lose healthcare access, your home, car, partner, child custody rights, etc), 2) fear-mongers like Fox/Faux/Fear News, the GOP, etc. (they’re all out to get you, all the time), and 3) religion ('evil' is waiting around every corner, all your life with eternal unimaginable fiery torture as a deterrent). Let's be honest, no amount or size of Great Walls, or military spending, or nuclear arsenal, or non US soil military bases and ops, or international weapons sales, or personal weapons and magazine sizes, or of school teachers with guns, or of privatized, militarized (and systemically racist) police and mass incarceration, or of mass deportations including the Dreamers, or of bans of entire groups of people, or of intentionally torturous (and often permanently orphaning) separation of immigrant children as a deterrent, or threats to shoot rock-throwing refugees, or torture of POWs, or control over women, or Space Farces, or border moats filled with snakes and alligators, or anything else will ever Make American Republicans Feel Safe enough… Every single American Republican policy puts fear and greed (fear) before people and planet (including equality and empathy) and no single policy in the world in the modern era is as patently bigoted and of the scale as their continued fight to ban (and register, and ''pre-arrest'', etc too) all Muslims (a bigotry-blanket of fear/hate covering all 1.8 billion people of all colors, from all nations, of all ages, of all sexes and sexual preferences, etc). Fear (and the empathy and critical thought it kills) is what separates the right from the left. The fear at the root of ”Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.” — Albert Einstein Liberals hate American Republicans because all of their policies put fear and greed (fear) before people and planet (including equality and empathy). American Republicans hate liberals for the exact same reasons, because they’re afraid we’ll get in the way of their fear and greed. We're closer to American Civil War II than most believe where our own families would again take up arms against those that do not join in their extraordinary fear and greed based bigotry, just like last time. With a $15 min wage, tuition free education, universal healthcare, a universal basic income (UBI) and internet access for all, we'll raise the starting point of capitalism from zero, we'll let you die with no money, to a level of life with dignity, reducing societal daily fears on a massive scale which will free us to welcome the coming automation revolution with open arms rather than fear and great harm. #getALLmoneyOut #EqualityMovement #StillSanders Call me overly positive, but I think we’re leaving the era of ‘greed is good’ and celebrating wealth and entering an era of altruism and equality. #EraOfAltruism #CelebrateSelflessness Reply George Cass says: November 29, 2019 at 2:27 am Impeach trump Reply Lisa W says: November 29, 2019 at 2:47 am Don't you just love when rich people tell us money doesn't matter?

Ari, you mentioned democratic candidate Marianne Williamson! I thought Marianne had been expunged from the airwaves as far as MSNBC was concerned. Any chance of interviewing her on your show? She may never get the chance to take on Trump, but she would best him in debate if she did. Nice to see a relaxed context here for your interview with Tony Schwartz – quite a contrast to the stultifying headteacher-behind-the-desk format that characterises most of your studio work . . .

Reply Doug Thomson says: November 29, 2019 at 5:59 pm Many, many years ago (I’m an old guy) I read a study conducted by a sociologist who examined the winners of the Irish Sweepstakes (pretty much the only lottery in those days). He found that contrary to popular belief the winnings did not bring ruin to the winners. Of course it did for some. Others blew through the winnings with fruitless excess (and some of those enjoyed the experience), but the majority used the money well. It bought them “time”. Time to start a business, time to go back to school, time to collect themselves. That may be the gift of money, at least at one time. Today we have become such an ego centric, self-possessed, superficial society that who knows? Regardless, I do wish I had kept that study but it was just a happenstance find on another research project.

Reply steve coley says: November 29, 2019 at 9:25 pm "Art of the Deal" (greed/hate). The exact opposite of the "Art of Love" where contrast plus harmony (love) creates an explosion of joy called "celebration" whereby the joy created is greater than the sum of the parts. Reply elizabeth padilla says: November 29, 2019 at 9:34 pm It is difficult in this day of age to value what is clearly our spiritual self we have such a loathing for the wise and aged. Shallowness in social media is rampant and accepted as a god. Trump is the epitome of the me decade and when he was young he was really not that much different from today, but he is worse because of the supposed power he possesses over others.

Reply Mamma Roma says: November 30, 2019 at 6:33 pm What bugs me, is how examples of bad behavior are epic in every corner of the world written about and depicted through art, yet each generation refuses to harken back history and learn from those examples. I can't believe we're living in a world where people are fighting to survive the moment, rather than preserving what has been built for us by ancestors who overcame such atrocities. You look at Europe and the British Isles, and then you see the U.S already crumbling and going backwards instead of forward. And if I hear one more Trump supporter say what a great builder this guy is, I'll promise I will hit them upside the head with a 2 x 4. He is NOT the architect of of anything he builds nor has he ever swung a hammer into a nail of any property he SUPPOSEDLY owns. Even when he had the chance to save the sculptures form the old BonWit Teller building, >HE< BULLSHITTED the Metropolitan Museum into thinking they would be donated, then he turned around and DESTROYED THEM . So, good luck having him organize any kind of infrastructure bill. Like TOm Steyer says: HE A FRAUD and FAKE. No wonder those are his two favorite words, BULLSHIT and FAKE because that's who and what he is. Reply Barbara Dellis says: November 30, 2019 at 7:58 pm NICE. Like this guy.

Deep within the hole is a nasty, foul, sinister energy which is going to be the demise of all of us.

Even the Draconian Federal Sentencing Guidelines permit lenience for convicted defendants with "impaired mental capacity."And yet, society must protect itself against, and punish, exceptionally heinous criminals and existential threats.Someone who talks dirty to a cop posing as a minor on the Internet easily gets 15 years to life in prison.
