That’s mighty rich of you

That’s mighty rich of you

From AJ, spotted on a Volvo:

Saw this in Philly by City Hall.

Is the implication that religion is bad and it would be good for the poor to do this?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the putative owner of this nice vehicle doesn’t think of herself as “rich.”

If ever a car deserved to be keyed, this is the one.

    That was my initial reaction.

    These folks with these bumper stickers fail to realize much of the police force are pro-America not pro-fascist liberalists.

    If I were a cop, anyone with liberal bumper stickers are prime for never getting a break.

One smug implication is that “only my purity keeps you alive.”

But since it’s a Volvo, the other implication is that religion is a way to control the teeming masses and the poor would be better off as atheists.

She’d (why do I think of all Vovlo owners as “she”?) be appalled if anyone actually took her up on that philosophy. And surprised at how indefinable a term “rich” can be.

The rich being well-armed could also have something to do with it.

It seems like a variation on Marx: “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.

But not all the rich are oppressors. And the poor in America are not so oppressed, unless trained submission to the nanny state equals oppression.

The “tyranny of the masses” ordains a redistributor to “murder” small business capitalists. Lawless Corzine, unions, and Obama donors get very rich. The poor still love them for taxing (and hating) the rich.

The religion of “HopenChange” is the opiate of poor Democrats, but they gots their Obamaphone.

Put a note on the car …

“Give me all your money, end of debate!, signed IRS”

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the putative owner of this nice vehicle doesn’t think of herself as “rich.”

But her beloved Obama does, and he’ll tax her as one.

Atheism is the opium of the affluent.

    Atheism is itself a religion premised on a faith which rejects another faith. The only authentic neutral position avoids both atheism and theism, and any other philosophy which relies on articles of faith. That is to say, inferences may only be drawn from a limited frame of reference (i.e. science).

    That said, judge each faith by the principles it engenders. The two axiomatic principles which seem to be universally — if selectively — acknowledged are individual dignity and an intrinsic value of human life.

I wonder if the owner of that vehicle realizes that when compared to the rest of the world…there is a really good chance they are the rich. Relativity bites.

    Perhaps she thinks that it is reasonable that everyone could enjoy a beachfront property in Hawaii.

    Perhaps she is simply disappointed that her good fortune does not include possession of that strictly limited resource.

    Once she recognizes her exceptional good fortune, she will become the oppressor. She would be well advised to respect not only her dignity, but that of other people, too. This is applicable to every individual, irrespective of their material possessions.

    We should promote voluntary exploitation (e.g. economic exchange, charity) and strictly limit involuntary and fraudulent exploitation, especially when the latter serves to sponsor progressive corruption of individuals and institutions.

What keeps the rich from murdering the poor?
