    Where do effing people like Kingston come from?

    Why do they hate the poor and do everything in their power to keep them poor and hungry, all the while proclaiming their Christian faiths and adherence to Biblical principles.

    If there was a Jesus, I am sure he would be really pissed at them for what they are doing to the least of his brethren.

      playing in the sane week that A Christmas Carol is on all the networks is poor planning.

      If they didn't hate them, they'd have to be sympathetic.
      If they were sympathetic, they'd feel guilty about the economic policies they espouse.
      No one likes to feel guilty. Hatred, contempt or disregard place them in a position of superiority and absolve them from any personal responsibility for the role they play in the lot of the objects of their hatred.

      Guilt would render them responsible.

      They don't want to be guilty and they sure as Hell don't want to be responsible.

      Those poor kids have generational demons. They should be thankful the most the conservatives can do is whine about putting them to work. What conservatives really want is to do  to them what the Army of Gawd did to the Cananite children. Same demon problem, ya know.
