Matthew 7:1 states: “Do not judge so that you will not be judged.” Sounds pretty absolute until you read the second verse: “For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.” Jesus isn’t saying don’t ever judge. If He were, He would be contradicting Himself since He also said “judge with righteous judgment” (John 7:24). While Jesus protected the woman caught in adultery from the men who set her up (If she had “been caught in adultery, in the very act,” where was the man?: John 8:4), Jesus still told her to “Go and sin no more” (8:11; also see 5:14). Jesus is reminding us what the law states about consistency in judging: “You shall not have in your bag differing weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house differing measures, a large and a small. You shall have a full and just weight; you shall have a full and just measure, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you. For everyone who does these things, everyone who acts unjustly is an abomination to the Lord your God” (Deut. 25:13–16; cf. Lev. 19:35–37; Prov. 11:1; 20:23; Ezek. 45:10; Micah 6:11).
“You can take a lot of pride in earning your keep, paying your own way, and doing your part to take care of yourself, your family and your country. It's also the sort of quiet lifestyle most successful Americans actually live as opposed to the funhouse mirror image of reality that's glorified in our popular culture.” You know what sickens me is even many of those who meet the above quoted criteria still vote Democrat! It is a phenomenon I have long fretted over, a Pepsi challenge I call it, where people asked a series of questions and discover to their surprise and sometimes to their horror that they are actually a Republican! Another way of putting it is the Jewish voter who, it is said by Jewish humorists, live like Presbyterians and vote like Puerto Ricans.

Obama Satire? Still Objectionable

Some on the left will tell you “All in the family” was rightwing humor citing Archie Bunker as the right wing funny man and Meathead as his liberal foil. However anyone with even a modicum of knowledge understood that Archie was being setup as the clown and Meathead the long suffering moderate. The actors, including Carroll O'Connor were all liberals, playing their roles to the tune leftist Norman Lear orchestrated.

Ericynot1 Consider this, movie critic Michael Medved has documented the ideology-first bent of movie makers who can and often do put ideology ahead of money in their productions. It is why we encounter the head scratching phenomenon of G rated movies making bundles of money while the crappy leftwing bilge flops at the box office. Yet they continue pushing such tripe. In the TV side of entertainment it is well known that Fox out shines all the other leftwing lies-based cable news shows but no amount of bottom line thinking will ever get the powers that be to hire conservative news people to compete with Fox. It isn't always money.

I agree with Mother of 4 and Carlos7. Watching such shows in order to be prepared at the office water cooler is allowing the culture to set the agenda. Why not bring up a more enlightened subject be it a movie or book instead?

You are right Dr._Zinj but Pat Buchanan and the peace at any price crowd, the ones who delight in labeling the Churchillian, voices crying out warnings of evil “war party” people will always find away to wait until it is too late.

“By the way, what is it with Obama and the word 'irresponsible'? In Wednesday's press conference, Obama said that by targeting civilians, Hamas was behaving 'extraordinarily irresponsibly.' This is only slightly less condemnatory than 'inadvisable' or 'unproductive' -- and far more conciliatory than the language he uses about Republicans daily.” It struck me as well. Sort of a Mr. Hitler was awfully rude to the Jewish people. He sickens me.
Vice President Biden-his-time plagiarized Neil Kinnock the Brits Labour Party chieftain and it never harmed him. It's probably a résumé enhancer among them clowns.
