Liberals like to pride themselves on being intellectuals and supporters of education. They claim that conservatives and Republicans are against education. Laughable. If education is so important, why do liberals force everyone to pay taxes to support the failing public education system when private and home-schooling are so much more effective? The answer is easy. They can only brainwash our children to become atheists and socialists in the public schools.

There is not one single thread of real evidence that he ever existed..NONE. Why must all religions depend on fear and a reward, and why would God have a gender or nationality? There is no such animal, and only the weak minded could possible believe in a mythical sky god.
Roman history documents his existence.

Tacitus, a Roman historian, wrote the following in his Annals, c. AD 115, which refer to what the Roman Emperor Nero did after the great fire of Rome which occured c. AD 64:

"Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus..." Annals 15 -44

One of many examples. The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls documents ancient times even before Christ and aligned with the Old Testament.

It's not a matter of whether he existed or not. It's a matter of whether you choose to believe he is who he said he was.

That's your choice but, as to his existence, you're in deep denial.

Liberals claim that anyone who disagrees with their lifestyle is promoting “hate.” Do you want to see real hate? Just read for yourself the hate-filled comments on our first episode of PolitiChicks.TV, where we discussed homosexuality in America. Not one hateful word was said against homosexuals on this show. Not one. In fact, Victoria Jackson stated,“I love gays!” The only hate I found was from the thousands of liberals who were commenting. 99% of all hate is spewed from the Left.

If Liberals aren’t racist, why do they evaluate and categorize everyone by the color of their skin? Why are they so angry when Blacks leave the Democrat plantation and achieve the American Dream? Why do they continue to promote abortion when far more blacks are killed by abortion than whites? Why do they continue to promote social programs that enslave blacks at poverty level?

When the GOP will be back

It’s no secret the Republican Party is dealing with a right-wing contingent, which is small but loud and which threatens to run the party off the rails. My colleague Karen Tumulty posits,“That the government shutdown was a political disaster for the party that engineered it is widely acknowledged, except by the most ardent tea partyers. And that near-unanimity presents an opportunity for the establishment to strike back — and maybe regain some control from the insurgent wing.”

With expressions of regret about the shutdown strategy from figures like Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who sided with the shutdown squad on key votes, that process is already underway. But the process won’t be complete until:

There are successful primary challenges from the center against Republican shutdown advocates.

Mainstream Republicans in primaries start using their opponents’ support for the shutdown in attack ads.

The Heritage Foundation returns to respected research, and Jim DeMint decides to spend more time with his family.

Republican candidates don’t want to campaign with GOP Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

Republicans have to defend their shutdown votes in GOP primaries just as Hillary Clinton had to defend her Iraq War vote in the 2008 Democratic primary.

Cruz doesn’t get a speaking slot, at least in prime time, at the Republican National Convention.

An endorsement by the Senate Conservatives’ Fund is considered the kiss of death for Republicans.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) worries more about his participation in the shutdown vote than in immigration reform.

Flagship conservative publications stop making excuses for Cruz.

Newt Gingrich says the shutdown was “fundamentally”(a favorite Newtism) destructive.

“It is always worth fighting” gets dropped in favor of “We have to fight smart” as the conservative mantra.

Talk radio hosts rarely talk about the shutdown.(They never apologize; they just move on.)

All, or even a great many, of these would suggest the spell is broken and conservatives of good will have emerged from the fog of delusion and denial. The shutdown can be a palate cleanser for the GOP if it is recognized as emblematic of what radical right-wing politics will get you. If it forces Republicans to coalesce around positive, attainable ends and to put a premium on good governance, then the shutdown debacle will be seen as the end of a very bad time in the GOP’s history and not the beginning of its extinction.

Liberals say they are pro-Jew. So, why do they hate the nation of Israel? Why are so many Jews members and supporters of the Democrat Party? This is one of most mind-boggling of liberal contradictions.
Why do liberals hold beliefs that appear to be self-contradictory? The answer is simple: All liberal positions are ultimately Anti-God to the core. Islam and homosexuality are not supported by the Bible. The Bible promotes personal responsibility, private property, and an ultimate standard for right and wrong. Liberals hold positions that are counter to the Word of God or at best they twist the Word of God to support their positions.

...much can happen between now and the midterm elections next year, when Republicans hope to hold the House and gain the Senate — and Democrats intend to hold the Senate and recover the House.
Each respective goal is equally possible depending on the same single significant determinant: whether Ted Cruz stops talking.
While that thought settles in, we pause to note that, right now, the idea that Republicans could convince anyone that they should be allowed to deliver milk, much less hold the nation’s purse strings, seems remote. But things do change quickly around here. With the debt crisis postponed and the government up and running again — faith in the efficiency of which underscores the direness of our political straits — most Americans will settle into the season’s serial holiday distractions and move right along.

.. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Most liberals believe in Darwinian evolution, as opposed to special Creation by God. They believe that all species arose naturally through a concept known as “survival of the fittest.” The weak die out and the strong survive. Yet, Liberals spend so much time (and other people’s money) fighting to protect endangered species, rare ecosystems, wet lands, etc. Isn’t this incredibly inconsistent? After all, evolutionists believe many species died out over millions of years because of natural selection. As consistent evolutionists, shouldn’t they be happy that humans are now dominating the planet and all sub-species? Incidentally, as a Christian, I believe God requires us to be good stewards of the environment (not tree huggers). But I can hold my position consistently.
I want to fight to protect endangered species. And I'm not a Darwinian liberal. Quite the opposite.

And why your statement about Darwinian liberals' inconsistencies concerning the "survival of the fittest" theory is correct.

Forty three year old Jay Z is a conglomerate with hundreds if not thousands of employees and liabilities up the ying yang. His net worth is in the $500 million range.

Twenty three year old Taylor Swift is a singer songwriter whose net worth is in the $220 million range. She has a handful of employees and few liabilities__she's owns her music and will collect royalties on it forever.

People have less money now because of Obama's new taxes.
Obamacare is not going to lessen the burden for health insurance for many working class people.
There was a much more practical and common sense approach.
I'd waited for decades for health care reform. This isn't what I waited for.
Oh, I disagree. People aren't saving less because of "Obama's new taxes". They are saving less because they feel secure about their future.

In 2008, people were saving money at twice the rate as 2007 and, at the time, it was predicted that once the economy improved people would return to their "shop-till-you-drop" ways. That is exactly what they have done. It is a result of Obama turning the economy around.

I will say that I was not a big fan of the Affordable Care Act when it was enacted. I said at the time it was too all-encompassing but it passed and I believe we have an obligation to do all we can to see it succeeds. IMO, the proof of whether or not it is a success will be the emergency room occupancy rates and a stop to the ever escalating policy premiums. If emergency rooms are still full and premiums continue to rise, it is a failure.

It seems to me the people who are doing all the complaining are the ones who are too self-indulged to comprehend the value of health insurance. They are the very ones who get in an accident or are diagnosed with a terminal illness and expect tax payers to pick up the tab. The ACA will, at the very least, make these people give health insurance a second thought.... even if all they are doing is paying a penalty for non-compliance.
