I believe freedom for all means freedom for all, except when its on my dime (or anyone else's).
I believe we have the right to own guns. Now if leftist phags started advocating actually punishing the criminals who abuse them (instead of trying to infringe Constitutional rights), we'd be in business.
I believe in a living wage, and the necessity to work hard to earn it.
I believe most rich people have created/expanded their wealth on their own thru legal hard work, unless they have last names like Kennedy, or Pelosi.
I believe welfare sometimes helps the poor, but is horribly abused.
There retard, I helped you out...
Wow, what a terrific response. I was off put by the exaggerated, self-righteous and simplistic viewpoint of the post you responded to formulate a response that was more balanced and fair. Thanks for taking the time.

The Today Show was talking about Syria today also as well as most of the major papers.

Everyone needs to do what they think is best. Myself, personally, have mixed feelings. I enjoy the internet being tax free, but it is not a golden calf so why should it be given a special privilege? It is on hold at the moment to allow evaluation of the impact.
i signed a letter to my congressman this morning about the issue. funny thing was...the website with the form letter had the Heritage Foundation as one of the sponsors.

Silly, the Democrats voted to past ObamaCare-not the Republicans. It is the height of idiocy to pass a law, as the Dems did, and than ask to be exempt from it.

You surely can see the hypocrisy.

President Obama recognized him as a man "who loves his country", who "takes his job seriously but doesn't take himself too seriously", a man with "a great sense of humor" and, most importantly, "a good man".
Obama knows what many of us aleady knew. George W. Bush IS a good man.
Obama also must appreciate what it feels like to be in a president's - namely GWB's - shoes.
But the last 15 seconds of Bush's speech defined him when he movingly got choked up between saying, "I will always believe America's best days lie ahead....God bless America."
God bless George W. Bush.
LOL, oh barf. Did you see the part where Bill Clinton commented on the nude paintings?

LOL, someone finally responds to you and they are a stalker? You are a little confused there bud.

You were throwing a fit yesterday about CNN and FOX carrying this news story. I thought is was a little bizarre. Not very well thought out.

I get the impression you are a failure at free thinking and rely too much on some website to tell you what your opinion should be.

Starting in 2014, thanks to an amendment Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) successfully inserted into the Affordable Care Act to put Democrats in a political bind, members of Congress and personal staff — not committee staff — will be dropped from their federal health plan and have to buy insurance on state exchanges, which will launch next year.

Argue Christianity with someone who cares.
Extremism in/of anything is often never a good thing.

Mostly because it leads to unbalanced-ness....which leads to unstableness, which leads to stuff like failed statehoods, out-of-control budget deficits, and myriads of OTHER "warpedness" of behavorial issues per say.
