You're Going To Hell If...

Updated on September 25, 2013

A Moral Beacon?

Your Ticket Into Eternal Damnation Is Waiting...

Obviously if you're a tax cheat you are given safe passage to heaven? I can't believe that a man of Charlie Rangel's character would even open his pie hole to spiel what he just did on MSNBC, But he did. If he isn't a sterling example of morality than who is? Nancy Pelosi maybe? No she was just denied communion by the Vatican. Joe Biden maybe? Forget about it!

The entire foundation of Rangel's political career isn't built on a strong and charitable character unless it will, or has, benefited Charlie. So those of us who want to scale back on fraud, waste and abuse and excessive spending better be paying attention. According to Charlie we're all headed straight to hell. Uh Charlie? Jesus never said anyone was going straight to hell if...

Here's what Charlie had to say on an MSNBC segment. Hold onto your cookies. I',m warning you!

Partisanship? Surely Not?

Lets not pick Rangel apart at the seams just because he is a corrupt tax cheat who is now into preaching fire and damnation. Charlie has obviously found God and wants you to also. Only his form of god comes in the form of a bloated federal money munching monster which he fosters at every turn. I wonder if Charlie has talked to the Pope to see how he sees his form of blasphemy? I suspect not. In Charlie's twisted mind we need to give "God" more money for things like food stamps and propping up social security that he himself helped rape in the name of charity.

I've heard and read Rangel's ramblings and still am scratching my head. I've read the Bible and missed a lot of the message that Rangel is trying to hoodwink you into believing. Here's Charlie's interpretation of the works of Jesus Christ:

“Anyone that’s familiar with the Bible - or anything like that,” Rangel said on MSNBC, “Jesus said that you’re going straight to Hell if you don’t treat the lesser of his brothers and sisters. And what did he say? He said he was hungry! You didn’t give him food stamps. He was thirsty, you didn’t purify the water. He was naked and you didn’t give him social security. security. And…and… God knows, he was sick and you didn’t give him comfort!”

That seems more like the ramblings of a senile old man than a born again Christian.

This is becoming a common spectacle among Democratic politicians who want to call the kettle black when they are indeed the pot. Lately if it hasn't been Pelosi we have the likes of Rangel chiming in with the chorus. I know that god doesn't appreciate people like Charlie and Nancy invoking his name when it is convenient for their political cause to do so. While in the same breath being about as pro-choice as choice can get and scrambling like demons to save Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars. Somehow their whole concept of ethics and faith get the average person totally confused.

The question now becomes who is who in the pecking order to get into hell. If a law maker voting to pare back the food stamp program, which has ballooned faster than Obama can tell his next lie, is a sure ticket into hell then what chance does a corrupt, tax cheat like Charlie Rangel have of making it into heaven?

I'm just asking...

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Frog - Just think about it. Rangel has a Public Policy Center named after himself, which can obviously be used as a lobbying device if they so choose. And who knows how much Rangel influences such lobbying (if it's going on), and/or how much of the "donations" go directly to Rangel? Rangel may possibly be getting compensated personally, outside of his campaign fund, in exchange for lobbying Congress via this think tank. 12 out of 13 convictions. Where are the fines and jail time? I know most of what Rangel was convicted of was fairly minor, but the sheer number of violations should count for something.

      Ghost - I agree. Today's progressives are really "socialist-lite" types, who don't even see that their populist/dictatorial bent is highly reminiscent of the tyrannical British royalty we fought off in the American Revolution and the War of 1812. This whole "progressive" thing started about 1890 (the beginning of the Industrial Revolution), and has been gaining steam for over 100 years. Forget progression; what we need is REGRESSION to what we had 235 years ago - a true Constitutional Republic.

      Margie - Dependency on the government is the Democratic way. Has been for decades since LBJ created The Great Society. Liberals never refute that or want to talk about it.

      Unbelievable! What liberals fail to understand is that conservatives WANT to help by giving a leg up to those who are down on their luck ...temporarily. We (conservatives) prefer to give them more opportunities to succeed on their own instead of depending on government. For some reason, they demonize us and try to convince the uninformed that we are evil and greedy, when in fact, they are the more corrupt political party.

      I think y'all are being a little hard on Charlie. After all he is one of the democrat leaders that you might say are the best the democrats have to offer! Meaning all the rest of them are less moral and greater hypocrites than Rangle. We should be grateful that he isn't worse than he is and that the democrats strive to put forth leaders who aren't the worst of their worst while republicans and independents need to keep looking for the best of the best..

      Kudos to you for still being able to watch and listen when another political fool opens his mouth...from pelosi to rangel, reid to obama, I can't stand watching and listening to all the lies and corruption they sweat from their pores and drool from their mouths...I just turn the tv or radio off when I see a glimpse or hear them...

      Stu, how is Charlie going to be able to read that with an entire log stuck in his eyeball? A speck of sand in my eye is enough to blind me for a while, but Charlie....

      Got it figured out finally, though. All our present day Progressives are the natural growth of weeds known in the 1700's as loyalists, those who preferred King George III and have been bucking to undermine and crash the Republic ever since. They're still ticked off that George Washington and Crew won the war....

      Rangel is a nut with no credibility at all. He wants to damn to hell all taxpayers who want the social safety net to be affordable enough not to incur ever building debt, but I wonder how much he himself has given to the poor?

      According to the NYT (11/16/2010): "A House ethics panel has convicted Representative Charles B. Rangel of all but one of the 13 ethics violations he faced, for offenses ranging from accepting a rent-stabilized apartment from a Manhattan developer to failing to pay taxes on rental income from his Dominican villa to raising charitable donations from companies and corporate executives who had business before the committee he led."

      Of Rangel's 12 convictions, Count 2 is interesting in light of your Hub topic: "Violating code of ethics for government service: Accepting benefits under circumstances that could be construed as influencing the performance of his governmental duties, with respect to soliciting donations and other things of value on behalf of the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Policy at City College of New York." Apparently, Rangel's "aid to the poor" was actually donations he solicited from others to a Public Policy Center founded on his own behalf in exchange for political favors from Rangel. I find it hard to call that "charity."

      You know in the Bible where Jesus talks about the log and the speck (Luke 6:42)? Charlie really ought to read that long and hard.

      PP - That was my take on the story myself. Charlie is trying to straighten us all out.

      I guess I had it wrong all these years; didn't Jesus throw the tax collectors and money changers out of the temple; well ole Charlie's trying to get us to believe he embraced them for stealing all the people's money in order to redistribute it; kind of like modern day Democrats!

      I wonder if any of us could use the excuse that we "forgot to pay" our taxes? I guess our elected Royalty have privileges we don't have.

      Rangel with his ramblings is the poster boy for tax cheats. He's not corrupt he explains, he just forgot to pay those taxes. Works for him!

      Keep in mind that poor Charlie had to stand in front of all the other crooks and thieves and tell them that he too was a crook. This was his punishment for being found guilty of ethics violations.

      Needless to say, he was preaching to the choir telling this group he was a thief. I'm sure that there were a few in the crowd that looked at Charlie as a rank amateur when compared to others in the group.

      Now, had you or I done what Charlie did, we would most likely be in jail even now. When we do get around to cleaning house, I hope that Charlie is one of the first ones to pack his bags and leave.
