No I don't mean give it away. Why would they do that? Let me ask a question that may give you more of an idea of what I am trying to say. Why do you think that the trickle down economics didn't work when in theory it should have?

The problem is the democrats see all that new money rolling in and they just can't keep from spending it instead of paying down the debt. Along with the fact that progressives (republican and democrats) think growing government is the way to Nirvana. If you were truly honest with yourself you would understand that.
We were on the path to psying down the debt in 2001 when Bush took office.

The idea that you will vote Republican proves you are a hypocrite.

You talking about debt & voting for Ryan is just too f*cking ridiculous.

Let me help you out there Sticky Britches, The view points of "THE FRC OR FAMILY RESEARCH CENTER are accepted view points of not only Christians but normal people of any faith!

No normal person thinks it's acceptable to eat feces!

No normal person thinks it's acceptable to molest children!

No normal persons thinks that being the source of a disease that has killed millions and the primary source for it's continued spreading is acceptable!

Not to mention the highest rate of syphilis, herpes, hepatitis, anal cancer and various parasites from feces eating.

I take that back, nobody but the Democrats think that's normal.

Glad to have cleared that up for you!

So what? Who cares what paranoid Luke wrote.
Homosexuals attacked no one. They have been attacked by Family Research council and the born again evangelicals. Homosexuals were excluded from Boy Scouts in the 1980s and now Boy Scouts are infested with Christian pedophiles.
Show us proof of these allegations you make about homosexuals.

The Reason why you don't want to gradiate from West Virginia Univarsity....

Then, on another occasion, He used an analogy to explain that a person who builds a tower will first calculate the cost, and a king who goes to war will first consider his chances for victory. Jesus then wraps up the discussion by stating:“In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.”(Luke 14:33, NIV) Jesus did anything but make it easy for His followers to hold tightly onto money and possessions.

Any way you look at it, these are tough verses to ponder.(If you want hear my complete answer to these questions, you’ll have to pick up a copy of my book!) However, while mulling over the challenge that Jesus’ blatant and bold statments present, and wrestling with just why Jesus would say something so bold, I had a profound thought hit me just the other day…what if He didn’t?

When we ask ourselves “why” Jesus spoke so boldly in this area, we should stop and take a moment to think about if He didn’t. What if Jesus simply said,“Give what works for your budget”, or “Remember the poor every now and again”? Certainly, we could all set our Bibles down a lot easier after a verse like that. If would definitely be more comfortable and convienent. But, there is no tension there, no spiritual discomfort, and no pressing against our sinful selfish nature. We would simply be free to give what works for our budget, and move on with life as we know it (reaping no growth, no maturity, and no spiritual transformation).

Take holiness for example. Jesus said,“You are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”(Matt. 5:48, NASB). That pushes pretty hard against our sinfulness (to say the least!!). And again, what if He said,“Be as holy as you can reasonable be”, or “Give holiness a good effort”. Would it have the same effect? Would it stir all sorts of convictions in our hearts to strive towards holiness if He described it in such a manner? I don’t think so.

In other words, what if the Bible's bullshit? Well, that makes it a lot simpler to be a Christian, don't it? Thank you God for helpin' to clear up the fuziness in my brains.

But was insisting two weeks later in front of the UN it was that video - specifically mentioning it at least four times.
Just like the SS Cole investigation which ended before it began, the Benghazi investigation is going nowhere. The FBI which is charged with these types of investigations is not interested nor is it up to the task.

The problem dear Carol is that you and your right leaning media pals don't have many of the facts, no one does actually because the CIA is involved and that tends to shut down the free flow of information.

The CIA is charged with providing the US administration and departments with intelligence__with the CIA absent/evacuated, there was no one beyond CNN to provide details on what happened.

Frank Marshall & Bill Ayers are figments of your imagination. One was a family friend & other merely an acquaintance. One was his pastor. All these were investigated & they found nothing truthful to report on.
Your problem is you confuse the sewage from Fox, Limbaugh & Beck as the truth.
BS, plain and simple BS, Davey you wouldn't know Frank Davis, or Billy Ayres if they passed you, on your way to the food pantry? Everybody in and out of politics in Chicago, knows or knew those Communists. So your 'aquaintances' holcomb holds about as much water as a colender.
