Right. When you're a Proctologist, everyone looks like an azzhole.
When you're a Confectioner, most people look like suckers.
When you're the arrogant Magic Negro, everyone looks like both.

Hey, man, to be fair, if you're a proctologist, you are already aware that everyone is an asshole - you got one, don't you? Or did they cut it out with the rest of your colon? Otherwise why'd you become a proctologist? Personally, man, if it were up to me, we'd all be gynecologists and then you've already lost half your market.

“Like a lot of my Democratic colleagues I was too slow to appreciate the recklessness of Fannie and Freddie. I defended their efforts to encourage affordable homeownership when in retrospect I should have heeded the concerns raised by their regulator in 2004. Frankly, I wish my Democratic colleagues would admit when it comes to Fannie and Freddie, we were wrong.”– Congressman Artur Davis (D-AL), September 30, 2008
It's like a breath of fresh air. A Democrat exercising critical thinking.
More could learn from him. This country would be a lot better off.
One more time Carol, who originated these toxic loans? It wasn't Fannie or Freddie, it was unregulated mortgage brokers like Country Wide and Indy Mac and bundled them into mortgage backed securities that were rated AAA by Standard and Poor's and Moody's. Fannie and Freddie were victims of these scam artists as were investment houses and pension funds.
Where's the critical thinking Carol/ It's just the same crap you've been peddling for quite a while.

We knew Palin was a popular governor who took on the corruption in her own party and won.
That alone made her a heck of a lot more qualified than a junior Senator whose rise in politics was already questionable.
Obama won 2 times in the Illinois Senate - the first time by disqualifying his opponents petitions so he ran unopposed. The second time was because Axelrod made sure Obama's opponent's messy divorce was plastered all over the news and, therefore, Obama won again unopposed and didn't even win by a huge vote either time.
He won the Senate by another convenient "sex scandal" resulting in his opponent dropping out.
What a rather unlikely coincidence, huh?
It's not surprising that you're a Sarah Palin fan because both of you are consistently heavy on the hyperbole and light on the facts.
If his opponents in the Illinois Senate race didn't have enough valid signatures well then that's the way it goes. Jack Ryan is responsible for his own sex scandal Carol bringing his wife to sex clubs and pressuring her to engage in sex with others while he watched. Oh those Republican family values again!

You know you're not dealing with insane folks when they think mixing politics & religion is a good thing, or even possible! Religion pays homage to the Almighty Creator (God). Politics are policies set in place to be a happy medium in the differences in individual ideologies. Laws passed to govern the differences in peoples lives to make, to make equality more prevalent, & society more civil. Where does religion fit into the equation? But you're right, Jesus was far more liberal by way of his teachings, but he also had conservative values as well. He preached in support of slavery on numerous occasions. Now you can come with the angle of "slavery was different back in those times," but you can't be naive enough to believe that everybody in those times were in support of slavery. Right is right, & wrong is wrong!

Philadelphia (CNN)-- Jurors in the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell ended their first day of deliberations, Tuesday without a verdict.
Deliberations will resume Wednesday morning.
Gosnell, 72, is accused of killing babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords. Authorities allege that some of the infants were born alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.
Gosnell originally faced first-degree murder charges in the deaths of seven babies and a count of third-degree murder in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41. Mongar died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion.
Judge Jeffrey Minehart threw out three of the seven first-degree murder charges last week.
HOW COME OBAMA HAS NOT CALLED JEFFREY AND TELL HIM HOW HE IS DOING A GREAT JOB KILLING BABIES THAT ARE BORN ALIVE THAT OBAMA SUPPORTS!!!!!HE MAY EVEN CALL HIM TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND DRINK A COLD BEER TO HAVE A CELEBRATION!!!YES OBAMA IS A GREAT LEADER CHRISTIAN MAN!!
FALSE CHRISTIANS
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.
2 Timothy 3:5 ESV
Having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
Matthew 7:15 ESV
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
Titus 1:16 ESV
They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.
Matthew 7:21-23 ESV
“Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them,‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Babies born alive were already protected under the law. This was just more game playing by the anti-abortion crowd to weaken abortion law and to dupe dumbasses like you into having a fit about it.

Poll: Americans More Concerned About Trading Liberties For Tough Anti-Terror Laws

The same month that attacks near the finish line of the Boston Marathon left three people dead and injured dozens more, 61 percent of Americans said "they are more concerned about the government enacting new anti-terrorism policies that restrict civil liberties compared to 31 percent who say they are more concerned about the government failing to enact strong new anti-terrorism policies," according to the poll.
