Never trust a Vegetable: Not even Joe Biden
So, there’s good old Joe Biden, swimming in a sea of Testosterone, shouting to the world that the Republicans’ opposition to Barack the Wonderful’s jobs bill is going to be the catalyst for more rapes in America. Now doesn’t that just hack your Weiner? Stand up, Joe, let ‘em see ya! Well, not all of ‘ya, just the part that rapes America.
Smokin’ Joe just doesn’t get the irony. Perhaps we should send him a box of cigars and a blue dress to help him remember just which political party’s president came closer to rape than any other chief executive in the history of our republic. Can’t you just envision Biden asking Slick Willie after the fact: “Did you get your stimulus, Bill?” We’re not just talkin’ rape here. We’re talkin’ rape rape. Like Anthony Weiner, Joe Biden is his own Wurst Enemy.
The fact of the matter is that the Democratic Party routinely takes the position that sexual perversions are a-okay just as long as the perverter, so to speak, is an enlightened liberal.
In other words, the Democratic party aids and abets rape, abortion, homosexuality, beastiality, pedophilia, fornication, voyeurism, exhibitionism, paraphilia, bigamy, public masturbation, gerbils coming out of Gere, congressmen’s roommates running homosexual prostitution rings out of their apartment, and a wide assortment of other twisted behaviors limited only by the imaginations of the most vile assortment of sexy socialists on the planet. The Democrats have no morals. Well, that’s not exactly true. They are, in fact, immoral, amoral, and Balmoral (that Scottish castle has a most unfortunate moniker).
Neal A. Maxwell correctly pegged the decline of our civilization to the decline in morality in a speech a quarter of a century ago:
Those committed to the keeping of the stern but sweet seventh commandment in a time of increasing immorality will need to be special. Average won’t do now, anymore than average was adequate in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Civilizations as well as souls are at stake. One scholar who studied dozens of civilizations forecast that in “the struggle between nations, those who cling to chastity will, in all likelihood, keep the upper hand”—and a commentator added “[because] they try to keep intact the family which promiscuity and homosexuality tend to destroy” (The Human Life Review, Spring 1978, p. 71).
—Neal A. Maxwell
There is a funny thing about morals, or the lack thereof. People (read Democrats/ Liberals / Socialists/ Communists/ Envirowacko nutjobs/ OWS freaks) who exist at the lower end of the moral spectrum simply can’t comprehend that other people can live on a higher moral plane than themselves. It is beyond their comprehension. They think that everyone on this rock spinning around the sun is just as depraved as they are. Hence, we see prominent Democrats attempting to equate conservative political positions to moral depravity… Paging Joe Biden. Paging Joe Biden. Please pick up the white courtesy telephone for the big picture. Paging Joe Biden. Paging Joe Biden…
Joe must have some hair plugs in too tight. In case Biden still doesn’t get it, this is a big effing deal. Doesn’t it just give you a little pause every time Biden accuses other people of committing rape? Doesn’t that just say something about where Biden is in his heart?
Henry Fairlie has written perceptively in his book The Seven Deadly Sins Today concerning how “the lustful person will usually be found to have a terrible hollowness at the center of his life” and about “the desert he has made of himself and his life” (Washington, D.C.: New Republic Books, 1978, p. 187). “Lust,” wrote Fairlie, “is not interested in its partners, but only in the gratification of its own craving. … Lust dies at the next dawn, and when it returns in the evening, to search where it may, it is with its own past erased” (Seven Sins, p. 175).
Those so drained by sensuality do, in fact, seek to compensate for their loneliness by sensations. However, in the arithmetic of appetite, anything multiplied by zero still totals zero!
—Neal A. Maxwell
Don’t you just get the irresistible urge to gently plink Biden on the head with a rubber mallet just to listen to the hollow sound bouncing around between his ears? Perhaps Biden has this proclivity for repeatedly saying stupid stuff simply because he is hollow, lustful, and lonely? Paging Dr. Sigmund Freud. Pick up on Line 2 for a lustful politician. Paging Dr. Sigmund Freud…
Biden’s verbal jousts hit at the core of something besides morality. The other issue at stake is honesty. Do we really believe that Biden is sincere? Now that’s entirely possible, but doubtful. Biden is a political animal. Despite his penchant for tripping all over his tongue, the fact of the matter is that Biden is perfectly aware that, stripped of all spin, he is merely sputtering lies.
The late James E. Faust, a Democrat, had this to say about honesty. Are you paying attention, Joe?
There are different shades of truth telling. When we tell little white lies, we become progressively color-blind. It is better to remain silent than to mislead. The degree to which each of us tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth depends on our conscience. David Casstevens of the Dallas Morning News tells a story about Frank Szymanski, a Notre Dame center in the 1940s, who had been called as a witness in a civil suit at South Bend, Indiana.
“Are you on the Notre Dame football team this year?” the judge asked.
“Yes, Your Honor.”
“Center, Your Honor.”
“How good a center?”
Szymanski squirmed in his seat, but said firmly, “Sir, I’m the best center Notre Dame has ever had.”
Coach Frank Leahy, who was in the courtroom, was surprised. Szymanski always had been modest and unassuming. So when the proceedings were over, he took Szymanski aside and asked why he had made such a statement. Szymanski blushed. “I hated to do it, Coach,” he said. “But, after all, I was under oath.”
—James E. Faust
Joe Biden might as well be a cocker spaniel. After all, he has achieved that blessed state of color-blindness. Biden knows in his heart that anything said or done in an attempt to deceive is nothing but a lie. Biden’s equating of opposition to Obama’s jobs bill to rape is nothing but a lie, and Joe knows it. He won’t admit it, but he knows it.
Public virtue, which expects men to rise above self-interest and to act in the public interest with wisdom and courage, was so evident in leaders like George Washington, who, we used to declare, could never tell a lie, and Abraham Lincoln, known as “Honest Abe.” In the past few years we have seen “official after official—both on the national and the local political scene—put self-interest … above the larger public interest. …
“Men and women have … been removed from federal office and even gone to jail in our times because they exceeded the limits set by the framers [of our Constitution and God’s commandments]” (Charles A. Perry, “Religious Assumptions Undergird the Entire U. S. Constitution,” Deseret News, 27 Sept. 1987, p. A-19).
One reason for the decline in moral values is that the world has invented a new, constantly changing and undependable standard of moral conduct referred to as “situational ethics.” Now, individuals define good and evil as being adjustable according to each situation; this is in direct contrast to the proclaimed God-given absolute standard: “Thou shalt not!”—as in “Thou shalt not steal” (Ex. 20:15).
—David B. Haight
Joe Biden is a national embarrassment. He accuses his political opponents, while the truth is that he likely has an immoral heart deep inside the very essence of his soul. He shamelessly lies on the national stage, taking advantage of his high political position in the hopes that his political office will lend credence to his dishonesty. But he doesn’t seem to realize that his hopes are in vain. All he does is demean himself with his lies. The public long ago realized it made a mistake in electing Obama and Biden. Biden is history, and he knows it. But Biden intends to go down fighting. Hence the lies and the accusations on Biden’s part.
We need more integrity in government. We need to be governed by men and women who are undivided in honorable purpose, whose votes and decisions are not for sale to the highest bidder. We need as our elected and appointed officials those whose characters are unsullied, whose lives are morally clean and open, who are not devious, selfish, or weak. We need men and women of courage and honest convictions, who will stand always ready to be counted for their integrity and not compromise for expediency, lust for power, or greed; and we need a people who will appreciate and support representatives of this caliber.
—N. Eldon Tanner.
Biden is the perfect example of the type of person who shouldn’t be in public office. In November, 2012 we will have the opportunity to rectify the error.
Biden’s argument for remaining in office can be summed up thusly: Hope and change through dope and mange. All we are saying … is give fleas a chance.
America’s response to Biden’s sophist argument can be summed up as well: Do not ask for whom the bus rolls. It rolls for thee.
