The Road to Hell

The origins and interpretations of the phrase's meaning.

Madam Noire
"...some charities and for-profit clothing recyclers are engaging in a donated clothing war, with the latter looking to cut charities out as drop-off middlemen..."

Huffington Post
Food imports drove down the price of indigenous produce so much that local farmers lost their land.

Life Site News
Long-lasting contraception is great, but sex without a condom is still very dangerous for other reasons.

This is a lengthy interview, look for a link to the audio in the first paragraph.

Some organizations will make the poor jump through hoops before they get the food or clothing held up before them as donations.

As the old saying goes: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions." It seems to be a derived from another saying "Hell is full of good wishes and desires. Heaven is full of good works."

Well this sounds familiar, no? How about praying for the victims of the French terror attacks? Getting on your knees and praying sounds like an excellent candidate for a good intention.

But it gets worse.

What you might think are actual good works, can go terribly wrong. Some works go wrong because they are not thought out very well. Other works go wrong intentionally because of a hidden economic agenda.

American Theocracy

Think Progress
This is not just about JGBT rights, it about outright Theocracy. A Radical Fundamentalist Christian State

Christians have tried this before. It's called The Crusade.

EX CIA Chief George Tenet gets out ahead of the impending judicial action. He'll be lucky if he gets leniency for throwing Bush, Cheney. Rumsfeld. Rice, Wolfowitz et al, under the bus.

The Humanist
You're basically screwed if you don't read the fine print.

The histrionics are designed to distract from the obvious profiteering from the Military Industrial Complex.

Believe it or not, there is a hidden agenda behind the anti-LGBT movement and the Anti-Syrian refugee movement. It's called Dominion Theology. What I call American Theocracy.

It's not really about securing status as a protected class for the Christians, It's about securing Cultural Hegemony.

This site suggests that Vitter has a diaper fetish.

Mother Jones
The interview with an elleged prostitute may be suspect.

The Week (01/22/2014)
This article shows how little the NeoCons cared about Christian values. (BONUS: negative campaign video at the end)

The Times Picayune
The media doesn't want to let bygones be bygones.
Here's a bonus YouTube video clip of Rachel Maddow critiquing the Vitter campaign. It's out of sync, and it's an unofficial video so it might be taken down pretty soon because NBC News rolls that way, so here's the MSNBC link.for more
