    They better use their 15 minutes quickly, because Americans don’t like, unless it’s something involving celebrites being stupid, stories that last more then a day or two.

    I wouldn’t lump KEN WARREN in with your average lib. He’s SUPER-LIB!

    A recent sampling of his brilliance:

    AMERICAN’S have no attention span (re: helping Haiti) AMERICAN’S will be distracted by a Hollywood story. (I don’t know what country he’s in, or what kind of aid they’re sending, but I’m sure he’ll blame it on America) Republican Presidents are responsible for all problems (Congress has nothing to with it) Conservatives scare him. Christians scare him. Republicans are for the rich (ignoring the current makeup of govt) Conservatives don’t like helping poor countries. Ain’t Christian. America under Democratic rule: Love it or leave it.

    Plus, from previous posts, AMERICANS are stupid, capitalism is evil, and socialism is a panacea.

    Why even pay attention to him?

    As we’ve reached the third critical day after the earthquake, U.S. folks have already been on the scene, doing what they can to help, for two of those days, and more are arriving.

    Six days after Katrina, zip was being done. In fact incompetence would make things worse for quite some time.

    We HAVE a more functional system (yes, administration) now. We HAVE noticed Haiti. But even with all the press coverage today, I still wonder if this story will hold up in the press as long as Tiger. It will be weeks, and months, before Haitians can even begin to recover from this tragedy- how long will we stick by them?

    Danny Glover (a member of the same brain-trust to which Rosy O’Donnell belongs) says of the quake: “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”

    Maybe he thought Pat Robertson was hogging all the headlines.

    CHURCH - I am a liberial, but I didn’t say – or for that matter think – all of those things you say I did, but the one I want to reply to is the one about Christians scaring me.

    I am a Christian, I try, and often fail, too follow the teachings of Christ. The people that scare me are those who call themselves “Christian” and then try to use the Bible to promote their own hate.

    Hell is empty right now, as is Heaven, no one will be going anywhere until judgement day, but when that day comes I think there will be a lot of Bibles scattered around Hell as many, many people rush forward, holding their bible before them as proof that they have been sent to the wrong destination.

    Even if there is no Heaven or Hell, following the teachings of Christ is not a bad thing to do.

    Everybody that sets goals falls short of those goals at times. Will you forgive yourself and try again? Thats what’s important. Learn from whatever you experience and do better.

    That’s all the Christ asked for. He told his followers to love one another and those that “believe” that won’t hold you to account for your short falls. But, you do have to “pay” for bad mistakes. (I can “feel” the response to this already) Just hold fast to your core beliefs and live them.

    Ken, you are right about american news’ attention span, BUT, you find the same thing just about everywhere there are 24-hour news networks (including here, with RDI, LCN and CBC newsworld.)

    Fennec: your “beliefs” don’t amount to a hill of beans. And yet, it is what we believe, the sum of what we have learned condensed into a “core value” that dictates what we do from day to day. Which equates to what you said: “What counts is how I am living now”.

    If there is a God, keep in mind that such an entity would need nothing from you. Not you money, not your worship - nothing. So how you live your life day to day IS what matters. Not how many times a week you go to church, or how much you donate to the building fund (though if you are a member of a religious organization it matters to them and thus is part of your day to day life) but what you accomplish with the abilities you have and means at your disposal. Your choice, your discretion. So what do you “believe” you should be doing?

    The White House gets all it’s “Coke” from Haiti.

    fennec, do you realize the Quakers are what Anthony calls “fundamentalist”? I don’t know much about them; but I do know they were a protestant sect fundamentally opposed to the Anglican? Church’s teachings. They were called “Quakers” because of the physical manifestation of their epiphanic experiences. Same with the “Shakers” and the various charismatic groups. I hesitate to characterizethe sects further because of the possibility of error being mixed with true worship. In short…the Quakers were Holy-Rollers: Welcome to the Club.

    Churchy, these Super-Lib Trolls are so similar it’s hard to tell them apart. And then one has to wonder if they’re even American and have any “skin in the game”.

    Fennec: yep, I was confused. I thought you were talking about your “personal” belief as opposed to a belief system. The specifics of your beliefs do not define reality. However, reality should bring definition to what you believe. On a personal level. I’m not a big proponent of mass adherence to a “belief system” and so don’t have much truck with organized religion.

    Blazin’-B: Please, define “american”. Leaving that thought for later, and remembering that the US has a lot of influence on and effect on what happens in the rest of the world, most of the people commenting here do indeed have skin in the game.

    American - Of, from, or birthed in America. If that is too simple for you; Remember this is not a Philip K. Dick novel and hallucinogenic drugs are not required for understanding.

    Sooky, I’d stick my tongue out at you…but it’s always stuck out. :©Þ There is a definite Marxist-socialist connection from Haiti with the Democratic Party. But I’m just guessing about the Coke…They’d be middle-men anyway.
