    The Judgment of Paris (1904)a painting by by Enrique Simonet

    Judgement of Paris

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Zeus came to learn from either Themis[12] or Prometheus, after Heracles

    had released him from Caucasus,[13] that,

    like his father Cronus, one of his sons would overthrow him.

    Another prophecy stated that a son of the sea-nymph Thetis, with whom Zeus fell in love after gazing upon her in the oceans off the Greek coast, would become greater than his father.[14]

    Possibly for one or both of these reasons,[15] Thetis was betrothed to an elderly human king, Peleus son of Aiakos, either upon Zeus’ orders,[16] or because she wished to please Hera, who had raised her.[17

    All of the gods were invited to Peleus and Thetis’ wedding and brought many gifts,[18] except Eris (the goddess of discord), who was stopped at the door by Hermes, on Zeus’ order.[19]

    Insulted, she threw from the door a gift of her own:[20] a golden apple (το μήλον της έριδος) on which was inscribed the word καλλίστῃ Kallistēi (“To the fairest”).[21] The apple was claimed by Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. They quarreled bitterly over it, and none of the other gods would venture an opinion favoring one, for fear of earning the enmity of the other two. Eventually, Zeus ordered Hermes to lead the three goddesses to Paris, a prince of Troy, who, unaware of his ancestry, was being raised as a shepherd in Mount Ida,[22]

    because of a prophecy that he would be the downfall of Troy.[23] After bathing in the spring of Ida, the goddesses appeared to him naked, either for the sake of winning or at Paris’ request. Paris was unable to decide between them, so the goddesses resorted to bribes. Athena offered Paris wisdom, skill in battle, and the abilities of the greatest warriors; Hera offered him political power and control of all of Asia; and Aphrodite offered him the love of the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta. Paris awarded the apple to Aphrodite, and, after several adventures, returned to Troy, where he was recognized by his royal family.

    Eris (mythology)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Eris (Ancient Greek: Ἔρις, “Strife”) is the Greek goddess of chaos, strife and discord. Her name is translated into Latin as Discordia, which means “discord.” Eris’ Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia.

    “Eris (Ancient Greek: Ἔρις, “Strife”),
    therefore (as mentioned at the Kypria according to Proclus as part of a plan hatched by Zeus and Themis) tossed into the party the Apple of Discord, a golden apple inscribed τῇ καλλίστῃ (Ancient Greek: tē(i) kallistē(i)) – “For the most beautiful one”, or “To the Fairest One” – provoking the goddesses to begin quarreling about the appropriate recipient.”

    Sooo…you are saying that
    a person must have
    ‘a valid photo state issued ID’
    in order to get ObamaCare…
    and that will be discriminatory
    and “healthcare suppression”…..
    Hmmmmm….Wow! Interesting…
    How will the MSM deal with that?

    The discord….

    DC Person posted: Occupy has left the crazy socialist world and done gone capitalist! http://money.cnn.com/2013/10/04/pf/occupy-prepaid-card/index.html An Occupy group stated: “People who are unbanked, underbanked, and even just angry-banked will all benefit from using the Card because it is a better and more affordable product,”

    Occupy has stated that a person
    must have a valid
    “stste issued photo ID”
    in order to obtain
    an ‘Occupy Bank Card”.

    If: “a person
    must have a valid
    “state issued photo ID”
    in order to obtain
    an ‘Occupy Bank Card’,
    is that
    DISCRIMINATORY
    and
    would result in obvious
    “Occupy Bank Card
    SUPRESSION”!

    How can we cope?

    Photo ID’s
    to prove who you are.
    Occupy Movement CAPITALIST Bank Cards!
    ID required in order to obtain free Obamacare
    AND
    your ‘angry-bank’ Occupy Bank Card.

    The GAW News rocks!
    ‘Toons rock!
    This is some nifty journalism
    a real grin for sure!

    …..”unbanked,
    underbanked,
    and even just angry-banked”…..

    Dude, this is going into the
    2013 lexicon
    archives!
    “Angry-Banked’ is just too good
    AND it is justification
    for an “Occupy Bank card”
    to compete with the other cards
    in a free market system….
    How do they think of this stuff!?!

    Thanks to the GNB for this most excellent coverage!

    Wait until the various government agencies investigate and regulate the “Angry Bank Occupy Bank Card”.
    The IRS and regulators will require a valid state issued photo ID as well…
    🙂 🙂 🙂

    Sorry, this thread is not about
    changing the dialog to the establishing of a State Religion.
    Establishment clause or something…
    This is a ‘state ID’ thingy to vote,

    AND, the Mighty g knows that Greaser
    had a hat just like that one!
    I think he wore it to the track!
    sourcing guv-mint free benefits,
    and the obtaining of the new \Occupy banking card thingy!
    No churched up deflections here.

    Establishment Clause
    “The First Amendment’s Establishment Clause prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This clause not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another. It also prohibits the government from unduly preferring religion over non-religion, or non-religion over religion.”

    Now, back to this pesky “state issued photo ID
    to vote thing”…..Will we have to show guv-mint issued ID to post on the GAW site?
    Will there be a “Litmus Test” as imposed by the ‘ol IRS control persons?
