Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Does A Speaker Survive This?
The likely truth is that John Boehner never had the votes to cut a deal with President Obama. Any deal. Not a grand bargain of deficit reduction. Not a piecemeal deal that might have lessened the blow of all the Bush tax cuts expiring on Jan. 1. Nothing.
If thatís true, as I strongly suspect it is, then, yes, the last six weeks since the election have been a tour de force of kabuki theater. His Plan B was probably, in that scenario, his last ditch effort to escape this fiasco without having to admit that he never had the votes. Now that has failed, too, after a desperate 11th hour attempt to cajole, whip and bludgeon his Republican Members into voting for it.
It is easy to overreact to these things in the moment, to overread them. But Speaker Boehner just put it all on the line. The entire nation was watching, and he was exposed. He knows it. His conference knows it. Anyone left in Washington who had doubts about this speakerís clout now knows it, too. In a parliamentary system, he would resign and his party would elect a new leader. We donít do it that way here Ö usually. But itís hard to see how Speaker Boehner continues from here ó or why he would want to.

Another interpretation is that Obama has lost his best opportunity to make a deal.

That is, if he ever wanted to make a deal.

Cholera is a bacteria found in poor water sanitation successfully treated with oral rehydration salts and cholera vaccines.
So, you see, God created the medicinal components in nature to combat our own negligence. Safe water and sanitation again falls back on man to take care of what God has created.
But Jesus freaks oppose vaccines and the use of chlorine to make drinking water safe.

God may have created man, but man created medicines, vaccines, etc.

No,and neither will most Americans, but the trouble for trolls like you is that zObama won't be blamed.

No, I didn't say that at all. Not even sure how you arrived at that conclusion.

But it's okay. It's all going to be okay. Let's just stick to politics knowing God is still in control.

Okay, I'll still know. Is that okay with you?

In case you don't keep up with events, Lanza killed himself before he would have to face an armed adversary.
And, Lanza chose the most defenseless victims he could find.
I can tell you a little about his state of mind. He was insane. If you don't come to that conclusion after knowing that he slaughtered defenseless 5 year olds, then you shouldn't even be commenting here.
Let's review some of the facts:
He was allowed to seclude himself and not interact with society.
He spent his life playing video games pretending to slaughter images that presented no real threat to him.
He slaughtered people that presented no real threat to him.
He killed himself before he would have to face people that presented a real threat to him.
Who cares about the details of his thoughts. It's obvious he was violently insane. If you're going to digress, then I'd suggest a digression in the direction of how he became detatched from society and why he chose the most defenseless victims he could find.
It should be very obvious he had no intent of confronting anything that wasn't defenseless.
Just the presence of an armed guard would have prevented this.
You don't know what went on in his mind. He might have lost control because of smoking marijana. That's why they prohibit it on naval submarines and on air force planes.

It's inconceivable any Christian wouldn't believe that.
Every Christian knows this world is not our home. Heaven and eternal life comes with the territory of being a believer.
So I'm not sure to which Christians you are referring.
However, my interest is piqued.
You belong to a radical sect of Christianity that takes every word in the Bible literally.

Most Christians have more intelligence than that, but turn to religion to console themselves in the face of events that they cannot accept.

God created man and medicinal plants and man learned how to make pharmaceutical medicines out of them.

Is that what you meant to say?

Anyway, I don't know any Jesus freaks myself. But I know of the people you're talking about...who take things way too far.

They also don't represent most Christians.

My Rem 700 is chambered in 7mm UltraMag, and it is a custom gun with a match barrel and work done on the trigger assembly. I've used the Rem 700 in 7.62 NATO a lot when I was in the Marines. It was always a very dependable and reliable piece. I preferred it over the Winchester model 70. Both, though, have a reputation for reliability and dependability.
My AR-10 is chambered in 7.62 NATO. The gas system is designed for the 7.62 NATO. The .308 Rem can cause problems ejecting a round because it doesn't generate enough pressure delivered to the gas system. However, the casing dimensions are identical.
WOO..WOO..We're impressed! Such knowledge about deadly assault guns. Did you cut and past that info from Wikipedia or a NRA gun nut website? My AR-10.5 has a chambered 7.63 NATO gas bullets and I'm getting it bored out to a 7.64. Then I'm getting my 308 Rem bored out to a 309 or maybe even a 310 so it don't have problems ejaculating. Don't f'k with me school kids!!! You NRA gun nuts are such retards.
