Now that IS funny.
Heading for dinner. Take it easy on Miley ladies.
So your wife equates having a period with being weak and a coward? I see.
It is strange how republican women are fine with being the lesser to men,just as the bible indicates.

Taxpayer, Do you feel the assistance given to residents of New Jersey and New York in the aftermath of Sandy through the Federal government is a violation of your rights, and therefore, taking away certain rights from you?
For your convenience, here is the question again, Taxpayer.

I can stipulate that there is bullshit on both sides of the fence. I don't watch Fox. I do tune into CNBC for a few shows and occasionaly MSNBC just to get my blood pressure up and pissed off so I have a better work out.
There are times I feel the MEDIA, including all press mediums, should not have the right to libelously say whatever they want and should be held accountable for their words and actions. But every time soceity does, "someone" always plays the constitutional rights card. Should freedom of press be repealed? Not at all. America is not a communist state yet. Should the press be accountable for reporting facts, instead of opinions? Absolutely.
But that would not be nearly entertaining and would require some personal responsibility and accountability wouldn't it Miley? Not a welcomed concept or notion with most, not all, democrats.
And who would decide when the news is lying? Big government?
Most of the charges are clearly debatable. Very little is clearly black and white. So what you suggest would require a huge increase of government to police the media.

It is funny how you conservatives constantly contradict your base theory. Capitalism is best.

No worries, because I got a feeling that if Romney does get elected, he may be forced to resign. Yes, just like Nixon, you know the one who said, "I'm not a crook."
GM an Chrysler have both called him a liar and in my book he is a liar! Once the investigation shows just what he gained from the auto bail out it will all be over but the crying.
I have been back and forth between Topix, World News, Fox News, MSNBC and others, I have come to the conclusion that Mitt Romney is a joke, an embarrassment to his party and unfit to hold the title of Commmander in Chief. Furthermore, I would'nt vote Romney if he ran for dog catcher.
I am Allen and I approved this message!
After Iraq/Halliburton/Cheney, I do not see anyone being forced to resign over profiting from policy.

Interpretation of this passage is typically considered complex.[7] N.T. Wright says that 1 Timothy 2 is the "hardest passage of all" to exegete properly.[8] A number of interpretive approaches to the text have been made by complementarians and egalitarians. Vital to remember is that this writing is only one side of a letter written by Paul, and directed at a particular group. Therefor, interpretations are limited to one sided information with no record of the associated correspondence to which Paul was responding. Forming a conclusion on such limited information will be empirically impossible. Best practice would be to place Paul's letters into context with the Torah which he declared to love. The following is a collections of opinions.

Egalitarian and complementarian interpretive approaches to the text typically take the following forms.

Socio-cultural: egalitarians argue that the text was intended for a specific socio-cultural environment which no longer exists and that the text is therefore not relevant to modern churches[9](typically rely heavily on historical reconstructions using extra-biblical sources); complementarians argue that the socio-cultural environment (while relevant), does not restrict the application of the verse to a specific time and place in the past[10]

Lexical: egalitarians argue that the meaning of the key word in the text, authente&#333;, does not support the exclusion of women from authoritative teaching positions in the congregation;[11] complementarians argue that the meaning of this word in its context indicates that Paul did not wish women to have authority over men in the church[12]

Hermeneutical: egalitarians argue that the text was intended only to limit women for a specific temporary duration, or that it was intended only to limit uneducated women who were unfit to speak in the congregation;[13] complementarians argue that hermeneutical considerations indicate the text is universal in its application to Christian congregations[14]

Everything that the government does is an attack on people who don’t belong to that organization. If you think about it, every single action that the government takes is some kind of punitive measure taken against people who don’t belong to that organization. Even when the government claims to be doing something nice, they are doing so with resources that they obtained by using threats and violence, which really doesn’t make much of a case for the virtuousness of government.
This organization is not here to protect our rights as it claims to. In fact, when the government steps in and gives itself the responsibility to “protect” your rights, it is simultaneously stripping you of your ability to actually defend your own rights. When you are dependent upon the whims and capabilities of another human being to protect your rights, you are literally handing your rights over to them and essentially submitting to slavery.
Then clearly you hate the American constitution.
Utopia cannot exist.
Protecting the citizen is a mandate of the constitution. Are you saying this should be changed?

And what policy would that be Mike? The one where you did not get your way with bankruptcy so you hold up parts shipments and make unjust demands on an already straped auto industry and make off with $2M in hard earned tax payers dollars?

So in short, you are saying, the apologists say, it was good to keep women from being equals back in olden times but not now?
To bad Paul did not make this clear. It is as if a perfect god did not inspire the writings after all.
They are so imperfect, it has lead to thousands of years of women being treated as lesser to men by mandate of a god.

It was wrong then, and it is wrong now. Humans are human, men and women both, and never was there a time when women should have not been able to teach men.

The men who wrote the bible were misogynist.

The bible is very black and white. If it were truly perfect, that would not be a problem so much.

Nor will they question James Biden (brother of Joe Biden) for the billion dollar construction contract he was awarded. Politics as usual.

I always thought women were revered. Misogyny (play /m&#618;&#712;s&#5 94;d&#658;&#618;ni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls.
