<quoted text>I must, however respectfully, disagree with you. America has no king, and God resides in our hearts - not our government. I personally prefer to align with the Divine, but it's not my place or anyone's to declare a sovereign deity for everyone.
It just isn't.
We're all to blame, carol. The Divine only guides us if we choose to follow.
As a nation, we haven't - because as a nation, we worship Mammon, even if individually we say otherwise.
Just saying.
Maybe YOU worship some mammon, but that doesn't mean ALL of us do, MANY have their OWN ideas of GOD in their hearts, including some in government!
A lot of us strive to do the GOOD of a GOOD Lords work daily...because it beats the heck out of being evile!!

You're as full of shit as Carol.
Unions created the Middle Class. Without them, workers pay a steep price.
Hostess is an example of Rmoney style economics. THe Hedge Fund managers rewarded themselves with millions in pay, while th workers were asked to take cut after cut after cut.
At some point, people will refuse to be pushed around by rich fools. Expect to see more of that in the next few years.
hard times have always been the best organizer for unions.
Expect WalMart to have unions in the next few years.
It's the new civil rights movement.
To compare unions to greedy Corporate interests is ignorant, and that's being kind.
There goes the Walmart stocks and jobs then!!
(see Hostess)

Republicans Allowed Karl Rove to Mislead Them Again

....GOP donors and activists were fed more delusions than TV executives greenlighting the Oprah Winfrey Network. President Obama was deeply unpopular, even though no hard evidence showed that was ever true. Obamacare would dismantle the Democratic majority in the Senate, though parts of it were popular across the electorate and Republicans offered no tangible alternative. All the polls were biased and wrong, except the ones Republicans liked. The party’s message was focused on demonizing the Democrats, not putting forward controversial ideas because ideas weren’t needed. And Barack Obama was elected again.

When I worked with Rove briefly at the White House, I found him to be a smart, energetic, capable man. Maybe more than I even realized. In the past two election cycles, he and his acolytes have personally helped Barack Obama get elected and yet made millions in the process. You tell me who the dummy is—Rove or the people who keep listening to him and funding him. Come to think of it, who really deserves the blame for what’s befallen the GOP?

Nobody forced George W. Bush to make Karl Rove his all-knowing, all-powerful political adviser. Nobody forced Fox News to put him and his prognostications all across the network, often to the exclusion of all others. Nobody told billionaires to throw their money to a person someone marvelously described as a “GOP money incinerator.” Nobody told the media to make a fallible person with a dubious electoral winning streak the “genius” behind the GOP. What if the culprits we are all seeking are right before us—in the mirror?

Finally, it seems, donors and many GOP activists are waking up to the fact that there’s a world out there different from what they’ve heard about on Fox News and what they’ve been told by those in charge of the party’s machinery. The billion-dollar question is whether they will really do anything to change it. The danger of indulging delusions is that they always welcome you back.

The Pentagon announced today the formation of a new elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces.
These brave Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas boys will be dropped off into Afghanistan and have given only the following facts about terrorists.
1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They don't like beer, pickups, country music, or Jesus.
4. They are directly responsible for Dale Earnhardt's death.
The Pentagon expects the problems in Afghanistan to be over within a week.

So you admit to being a taker. DUH
Weren't you just accusing others of doing just what you're doing?? Taking money and healthcare from the Gov't??
As I said, look in the mirror, ya freakin' hypocrite!!
No surprise there, you nitwit.
There's a difference in people working all their lives and contributing, from those who do nothing all their lives but just take-from what OTHER people worked, earned and contributed to.
A BIG difference.

One is an earner-the other is a MOOCHER.

And it doesn't sound like YOU are in any position (especially since you seem so obliviously ingnorant to reality) to judge ANYONE else.

I just glanced up at the TV and saw a graphic that said, "Obama tells them to back off".
Was he talking about McCain and Graham or Israel?

I see where Billy O hasn't quit clinging to Rmoney's leg. He agreed with the 'gifts' stupidity, just as Chris Christie was calling it a stupid comment.
My money's on Christie.
GO Christie-(R labelduhm label)!
