Why they've allowed the racist hatred and violent threats those on the right have been making for years is beyond me.
did you see the jerkoff from NC, all talking bad about his guns and how he'll shoot at anyone who he thinks steps out of line??
He's your kind of guy, Carol. All about racism and hatred for his fellow citizens.
You nitwits are behaving just like the TP did 2 yrs ago.
All tough gun images from a bunch of scared old white folks like Fretard and this nut from NC. Now shiningnitwit has joined the coward ranks, talking about getting their revenge with guns after Obama is re-elected.
Yet they would never step out, knowing it'd be like signing their death warrant.
this is why your side will lose tomorrow. America gets it. The old white people are the problem in America. Time for them to die and clear the way for the new, diverse America that is waiting..........
I've seen much worse coming from your kind of guys.

Must be nice to be that confident.
I'm hoping with all my might you are wrong but I dare not think Romney's win is a given.
Well, since I digest other news sources outside of FOX, I have a better grasp on reality.
Ohio goes to Obama, who wins the election.

Okay, maybe the last post was too long. This is the interesting part:

"There are more than 14,000 existing Old Testament manuscripts and fragments copied throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean and European regions that agree dramatically with each other. In addition, these texts agree with the Septuagint version of the Old Testament which was translated from Hebrew to Greek some time during the 3rd century BC. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in Israel in the 1940's and 50's, also provide phenomenal evidence for the reliability of the ancient transmission of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament) before the arrival of Jesus Christ."

Also this:

"The Hebrew scribes who copied the Jewish Scriptures dedicated their lives to preserving the accuracy of the holy books. These scribes went to phenomenal lengths to insure manuscript reliability. They were highly trained and meticulously observed, counting every letter, word and paragraph against master scrolls. A single error would require the immediate destruction of the entire text."

Thought you would find this both interesting and enlightening:
Translations such as the King James Version (translated by Englan's King James) are derived from existing copies of ancient manuscripts such as the Hebrew Masoretic Text (Old Testament) and the Greek Textus Receptus (New Testament) and are not translations of texts translated from other interpretations. The primary differences between today's Bible translations are merely related to how translators interpret a word or sentence from the original language of the text source (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek).
There is widespread evidence from which today's Bibles are translated remarkably for absolute reliability. There are more than 14,000 existing Old Testament manuscripts and fragments copied throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean and European regions that agree dramatically with each other. In addition, these texts agree with the Septuagint version of the Old Testament which was translated from Hebrew to Greek some time during the 3rd century BC. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in Israel in the 1940's and 50's, also provide phenomenal evidence for the reliability of the ancient transmission of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament) before the arrival of Jesus Christ. The Hebrew scribes who copied the Jewish Scriptures dedicated their lives to preserving the accuracy of the holy books. These scribes went to phenomenal lengths to insure manuscript reliability. They were highly trained and meticulously observed, counting every letter, word and paragraph against master scrolls. A single error would require the immediate destruction of the entire text.
The manuscript evidence for the New Testament is also dramatic with over 5,300 known copies and fragments in the original Greek, nearly 800 of which were copied before 1000 AD. Some manuscript texts date to the early second and third centuries, with the time between the original autographs and our earliest existing copies being a remarkably short 60 years. Interestingly, this manuscript evidence far surpasses the manuscript reliability of other ancient writings that we trust as authentic every day.
Homer's "Iliad", for example, the most renowned book of ancient Greece, has 643 copies of manuscript support. In those copies, there are 764 disputed lines of text as compared to 40 lines in all the New Testament manuscripts.

Just FYI. I learned something new by reading this too.
That's your problem, Lorac.

You never recieved a decent education, despite your lies. So you think anything you find on the internet is the truth. DUH

Religious scholars laugh at your sort of simplicity and ignorance.

UYnless you've learned Aramaic, you have no idea what the contents of the original writings in the Bible say. Even the translation to Greek was very problematic.

Some words do not translate from one language to another, but I'm sure that's way over your head.

Meanwhile, you told us all we need to know about your parochial ignorance when you said you didn't know the USA had firebombed German and Japanese cities.

Yes, America has more than it's share of war crimes, in spite of your ignorance of it all.

You've managed to keep your head in the sand, or up your butt, for over 60 years. Too late for a blockhead like you to changd

But, they get away with it without consequences. In this case I tend to agree with Carol; get your vote in on time to avoid these issues, because we know the Republicans will use any opportunity to suppress the voters; they know they are Democrats.

Poor Nobraina. Desperation is an ugly thing to watch.

why didn't Rmoney ever show up in NY, NJ, or CT??

Obama marshalled the US Government to help. Chris Christie can tell you all about it.

While Rmoney collected 3 cans of corn, one of which he ate.
