Christianity is dying. the bible is not a relevant orchestration of proof anymore. my God does not care about mans government or how he he governs, only the individual. to believe and to think that something as far complex as God can be understood and translated into partisan political views is ....well stupid.
science cured influenza, religion flew 2 planes into a building. Islam and Christianity are equally violent and evil, crusades..taliban, whoever subscribes to a religion (not speaking for my God, only in my opinion alone) that has partook in the countless violations of basic humanity throughout thousands of years, inherits the evil and violence of which man has brought forth from the name of God. as i believe, My god has a special place reserved for the select catholic and christian preachers in the void of their own insanity. Proof?

Nothing you have said makes much Sense.....don't follow preachers, I follow GOD.Men always mess things up.The CATHOLIC church is a religious organization.I don't follow a pope, I follow GOD.People commit sins....murders...rape...for a variety of"reasons". Anything is a good excuse.You don't like the 94 year old Billy Graham? So?, I like the guy a lot.

As of 2008, Graham's estimated lifetime audience, including radio and television broadcasts, topped 2.2 billion.[3]During the civil rights movement, he began to support integrated seating for his revivals and crusades; in 1957 he invited the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. to preach jointly at a revival in New York City, where they appeared together at Madison Square Garden, and bailed the minister out of jail in the 1960s when he was arrested in demonstrations[citation needed].
I'm sure there is a special place for the Rev. Graham

Per some, Christianity is dying, but my God says you only have to believe that Jesus is His Son and He died on a cross for our sins. I guess to say the Bible isn't relevant anymore is like saying the war between the states isn't relevant anymore. When did history go out of style? Is the Holocaust not relevant anymore? Goodness gracious there is evil everywhere and it has nothing to do with God. Stop blaming God for the bad in the world and start blaming the society that is progressing daily that says "I can do what I want to and nobody can stop me." People have no respect for human life or dignity anymore and no boundaries. God is the scapegoat for people that don't want to accept we live in an evil world without boundaries. However, God can choose to draw a line in the sand with boundaries anytime He chooses, and so can law enforcement; that's what prisons are for. God lets man know there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Oh well on the upside, I've been decorating my home to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, my God's Son.

I agree Bacon, flying last week, I got to watch a LOT of that "respect" and "dignity". I saw a little boy, about 5 years old, throw a sandwich at his mom and say "you eat it". Nothing, she didn't say a word, just gave him a gameboy. I thought, 10 years from now your gonna regret that. Gotta teach those boundaries early.

<quoted text>Easy to make broad stroke accusations with no evidence.
What ideas are you exchanging? You refuse to articulate what you think might make Denmark have lower crime rates.
Looks like your main concern is bitching about me.
Denmark imprisons 17 people per one hundred thousand.We imprison 715 per one hundred thousand.My guess? Drugs.The WAR ON DRUGS is looking more and more like the WAR ON AMERICANS...decriminalization of weed would save billions of dollars that we now spend on locking up people who use Maryjane.It costs 35,000a year to lock someone up.We have more people locked up than China,a country with FOUR TIMES our population!! We have over two million people imprisoned in AMERICA! At 35,000 a pop!

<quoted text>Ok, but .08 is not really detectable to the server. "impaired" is subjective. Likely why I have never seen this law being enforced.
Of course I do cut off someone who is overly impaired in my opinion, and there are rules to how much one can serve an individual.
None of this changes my previous claims.
Emlu and myself got you Mike--accept Factoid #175. The "OK" and the "likely" and the "of course" proves(along with the factual link)that YOU WERE WRONG, AND CAN'T OR WON'T ADMIT IT, THUS the ok's, the likely's, the of course's. Today is Tuesday, Dec. 4th 2012. Will you argue this? Comical. Damn it--where is that funny and nuts icon?!

Listen, I love my cocktails too, but the issue/debate was the .08 NCABC statue. And our governments/federal & states and justice system are EXTREMELY FLAWED, but, imo, better than any system in the world. And I do believe the parents of todays youth are 100% accountable. Waco, it's laughable how parent(s)parent today. It starts at home and ends at home. And I believe if you drink, then you should be held accountable period. We don't have a perfect anything. Hell, I won't deny that I have had more than enough out at bars and social settings, but I was and still am responsible enough to be RESPONSIBLE PERIOD.

TSF, I have to give it you for keeping us abreast on tax breaks for the rich. I believe the rich aren't going to be the only ones suffering from the tax increases wanting to be imposed. I've heard so much about the fiscal cliff that I'm just about ready to jump off any cliff to end the misery of listening about it. Just joking, don't believe in suicide.

I am glad that you have moved away from calling America a communist nation and are now just worried it will someday become communist. Baby steps.
The problem Mikey is you are wrong. The collectivist economics that you and the other communist minded people support make this country a communist state. The central planning of freedom hating people is enslaving our families and has to be stopped. Every country from the beginning of recorded history, that has gone this way, has ended in fascism. With people like you voting the Hitlerís and the Stalinís in to power we are going the same way.
