Progressive Commandments

Love thy neighbor as you love yourself.

And while you are at it, do a better job of loving yourself!

Do not kill your neighbor.

Do not torture your neighbor.

Do not steal from your neighbor (especially his oil!)

Do not invade your neighbor’s country to steal her oil.

Do not loot your neighbor’s 401k.

Do not charge your neighbor excessive interest rates on her credit card.

Do not deceive your neighbor into a mortgage you know they cannot afford.

Do not deny your neighbor Health Care.

Do not deny your neighbor’s equality, in fact work for it. Because it is your equality you are really working for.

Do not deny your neighbor an equal chance to thrive and prosper because of the color of his skin, her religion, or their sexual orientation.

Do not deny your neighbor’s children a good education.

Do not attempt to make your religious beliefs part of your neighbors education.

Corporations are not human beings.

Money is not speech.

He who has the gold is NOT a good way to determine who makes the rules.

“If you can’t take their money, drink their whiskey, screw their women, and vote against ’em anyway, you don’t belong in the Legislature”

Since very few humans CAN take their money, drink their whiskey, screw their women, and vote against ’em anyway, the Public should finance elections, so they can’t give politicians their money, whiskey and sexual favors in order to buy our government.

Greed is NOT good.

There are no luggage racks on hearses.

He who dies with the most toys…..is dead.

The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.

We are not a bunch of different races and tribes who need to kill each other to survive. We are  a bunch of different tribes and races who need to become THE Human Race to survive.

The survival of the Human Race is more important than your Hummer.

Might does NOT make right.

War is bad for children and other living things.

You are a child of the Universe, you have a right to be here.

God, Goddess, the FSM or Charles Darwin ….love YOU.

Every human life is important.

Every human is entitled to a modicum of dignity.

Dignity includes a warm place to sleep, something to eat, water to drink and bathe in, clothes on your back and a way to EARN those things. And not having to fear capricious government or law enforcement…and yes…Health Care.

  2. I second these commandments. Too bad you didn’t get them off a burning bush, as it might get the attention of the fractious left. They definitely would put an end to all the idolatry now aimed at the pols, and put an end to the bickering over what a real progressive is.      

  3. Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

    I have some more but its skewed because of my immediate pressing personal needs and conflicts. it would include some things like, oh, say, give your family, who you love, at least as much courtesy and good manners and respect as you give to total strangers.

    I’m no authoritarian peasant. Sheesh. I don’t do “commandments”.

    I have no problem with authority. I am authority.

    So are you. 😉

  5. I thought he who died with the most toys wins!
