<quoted text>In summary: you believe that religious freedom belongs only to Christians - no other religion, especially Islam, need apply.
Nice.
Hold the Koran in one hand, and the New Testament in the other hand.
How about you hand the book that teaches tolerance, love, peace, humility, equality, forgiveness, and everything else that makes life better, to a stranger,... and burn the one that teaches intolerance, women in sexual slavery, and killing anyone and everyone who has a different belief.

Which one do you burn?
The New Testament or the Koran?

<quoted text>I thought all you Repubs were for a smaller government? Here Obama wants to do away with at least 3 Federal departments and combine it into one smaller streamlined agency. For that you bitch? Hypocritical Bastard!!!!!!!!!!
Government spending, as a share of the economy, is over 24% during the Obama administration according to Congressional Budget Office. It's also elevated from the historical average of 20.7% over the past 40 years. He is taking the size of government to new levels and he's keeping it there.

The number of federal employees grew by 123,000, or 6.2%, under Obama, according to the White House's Office of Management and Budget. The federal government has been one of the few areas that's grown during the economic downturn. The private sector remains down 1.1 million jobs from the start of 2009, while state and local governments have shed 635,000 positions.

Large-scale regulation has picked up under Obama. There were 75 major regulations adopted in Obama's first two years in office, compared to 120 during Bush's entire term according to the Government Accountability Office statistics. Fiscal 2010 saw a record 43 rules adopted. Regulations already cost the private sector over $1.75 TRILLION Dollars a year. As of the end of May Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, has added over 12,000 pages of regulations to Obamacare.

The House Financial Services Committee reported in April that less than half of the required rule-making for the Dodd-Frank bill passed two years ago has been completed, but just the first 46% already comprises more than 5,300 pages of rules. The Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee reports it will take over 24 million man hours to comply with Dodd-Frank rules per year. It took only 20 million to build the Panama Canal! So, itís been over 2 years that Dodd-Frank passed and the regulation hasnít even been halfway completed. To normal people itís no big surprise that investors are reluctant to put capital to work in the US economy, and that growth has been stunted as a result.

Liberals donít care because they are rarely among the productive in society. They expect everyone else to make money, pay more taxes, and just give it to them because they are incapable of managing their lives. November must be a referendum on our European Socialist Evolver-in-Chief.

that is the in-season rate for a nice place large enough to accommodate two or three couples or an extended family....
Philly folks love to go "down the shore"....
plus, it's cheaper than a trip to a place like Disney....
Yeah right__I get it and down here it's the same deal during event weeks for six to eight people.

But__those homes cannot be built back the way they were due to the modernization of building codes and that insurance companies will jack the sht out of the rates.

Case in point New Orleans, after Katrina where it's costing mega bucks to reconstruct the foundations.

Next year it'll be cheaper to come to Disney__probably the Cayman Islands too.

Bah, Republicans dug in their heels from day one. It won't be that Romney has better skills it will be that Democrats compromise more easily. Look how they got talked into Iraq, into the bank bailouts.

You'd have electrical power now if Obama didn't stuff a trillion dollars into the pockets of Democrat cronies instead of using Porkulus to upgrade the infrastructure, like burying the power lines, idiot.

Yup. Keep voting for thieves and leeches and egomaniacs. How's that working out for you with a trillion dollars siphoned off by Democrat cronies and your power lines still up in the air and being knocked down by a weak hurricane?
Keep eating that cold tuna fish in the can. Maybe you need to eat cold canned food for a few more weeks before you'll wake up to the fact that the Democrats are stealing everything from you.
But, look on the good side. You don't have to get out of bed to turn the lights out.)))))

"real dumb"
Thank you for your post. Just out of curiosity I have been tracking your BULLMANURE. In the last 10 days+ you have posted just over 350 pieces of BULLMANURE. In the same period of time more than 500 from 65 different posters posts have been directed at you, laughing at you and mocking you.
I will say on an average day a couple of nuts agreed with your BULLMANURE, the numbers, 14 different posters on 26 occasions supported the BULLMANURE you spew.
"real dumb" even you are not so dumb that you missed the laughter and derision directed at you.
Peace

Boehner and Obama had negotiated a compromise....and then Obama backed out, demanding bigger tax increase....
Obama has a serious character flaw in that he is unwilling to negotiate directly with competitors, whether domestic or foreign...he is apparently afraid of or disdainful of any kind of personal contact....so he makes demands through the media and then pouts when the other side will not give in to his demands.....
Homer may know people like this.....
Bah, Fox News, rightwing talk radio. Turn that garbage off already.

What you refer to as "homes" are cottages to them, second or third "homes" - mostly just vacation spots for wealthy Democrats & Republicans, but you wouldn't know that. You and you OWS buddies use tents in parks. Many are happy as now insurance will pay for fresh new walls & paint.
Maybe if you weren't such a loser and didn't make bad decisions in life, you would know these things, Democrat loser.
some of the owners are not particularly wealthy....the homes have been in the family for generations and various family members take turns for a vacation week or two each year...this time of year, they have until the Spring to clean things up....hopefully with taxpayer dollars....

Nah, he shoots his guns just about 365 days a year, he may take a day off for Christmas, pretty much every day after work, probably blowing off steam from his dead end job. I imagine there are shot up Obama posters everywhere. Doesn't bother me but my wife gets a little concerned about a stray bullet headed our way.
