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

<quoted text>The court decided that Peter Bacanovic had told Martha Stewart that Sam Waksal was selling stock in Imclone. This was illegal, and it was a violation of Peter Bacanovic's contract with the stock brokerage and a violation of the stock brokerage's contract with Sam Waksal. The court decided that Martha Stewart had benefitted from the crime of Peter Bacanovic, and that Martha Stewart had lied to the police and to the court in order to provide an alibi for Peter Bacanovic.
Peter Bacanovic committed the crime, but the loot from the crime went to Martha Stewart. This is an unusual crime. Most thieves steal for themselves, not for other people. Why would Peter Bacanovic commit this crime, when there is no loot for Peter Bacanovic?
Peter Bacanovic committed the crime to help Martha Stewart because Peter Bacanovic and Martha Stewart were friends.
So Martha Stewart has been found guilty of two things: benefitting from a crime committed by someone else, and lying to provide an alibi for a criminal.
Plus she had no credible excuse being a former broker herself. She knew exactly what she was doing...

I would guess you are one being not rational on the subject of government and religion. The government has no right and no business to be involved in religious matters. While I am anti abortion/murder it is legal. Does not matter whether or not I like it or not. It is legal. Same with gay marriage, not my thing, I think it is sick, but again in several states it is legal and it will become legal in more states.

Which is the point I was making. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and still fit under the same tent without being diminished or a part of a "tiny religious cult".

You and I agree on these issues but you don't consider yourself as part of a "tiny religious cult" for not agreeing with Galt, do you?

Galt can disagree with both of us without saying these kinds of things which seem a bit irrational to me.

It shouldn't matter if we disagree on certain issues if we're all still under the same tent...should it?

Galt is making it more of an issue out of it than it really is in the whole scheme of things.

As much as I and others would like to see Roe v Wade reversed, it's not going to happen in one election cycle. It doesn't mean I and others still can't take a stand against it without being marginalized by other conservatives for doing so. Does it?

You should be more concerned with groups like "AIPAC" and "PNAC"....

"A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm"

Quote:
A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (commonly known as the "Clean Break" report) is a policy document that was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by "Richard Perle" for "Benjamin Netanyahu", the then Prime Minister of Israel.[1] The report explained a new approach to solving Israel's security problems in the Middle East with an emphasis on "Western values". It has since been criticized for advocating an aggressive new policy including the removal of Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, and the containment of Syria by engaging in proxy warfare and highlighting their possession of "weapons of mass destruction".

Definitely need to lay off the social issues, I agree.
Galt is the only one who keeps bringing them up.

You know, I know and Galt knows the subject of abortion always comes up in Republican debates.

The invisible war on women during the last election was a deliberate attempt on the part of progressive liberals to make it a much bigger issue than it would have been otherwise.

But conservative candidates will never be able to completely avoid the issue of abortion or duck the inevitable questions.

Galt did suggest a good response. And Republicans do have to be careful and cautious and prepared for these questions.

But diminishing fellow conservatives who are against abortion doesn't get anyone anywhere.

Hey koolaide drinker, where do you think GULF WAR SYNDROME came from? Doctors were stumped on how to best help the military who suffered so greatly from the symptoms. WMD's were there and Syria probably had shipments delivered just prior to our invasion. Convoys of military vehicles/trucks were photographed leaving Iraq and going into Syria. The intelligence of England, U.S., France and Israel all confirmed WMD's. Bush 43 saw the same intelligence reports that select members of Congress they all agreed that WMD's were there and acted on information they had and allies confirmed with their intelligence.

Bush also addressed this more than once. Perhaps you were in the restroom relieving yourself from poison laced mind numbing koolaide.

It's funny how reich wingers always try to avoid their position on such things and dismiss their attempt of going into people's bedroom as a left conspiracy.

Too bad they can't talk about what the people want.

You're such an idiot, but I;ll try. The truth is this country simply can't afford 1st class healthcare for everyone, especially those who have unhealthy habits, those who rely on charity should accept their fates and stop expecting responsible people to foot the bill for them all the time. Feel free to contribute to them if you like and get fatcats like Bloomberg, Reid, Pelosi, Streisand, Clooney, Damon, Pearlestein, etc. to cut lose with some of their spare millions to help out. and stop your incessant whining and sniveling.
well said....time to get the welfare bums off the backs of the middle class...

Expect to start my new part-time job a few hours a day, a few days a week, in the afternoons next week.
Not a spring chicken anymore. The kinds of medical reports I was transcribing demanded a lot of focus and was becoming quite stressful. My brain was rebelling. Fifteen years of transcribing was enough.
You're just ornery.
the idea that people can retire at your age without sufficient savings is absurd...

Do you think most evangelical Christians are anti-abortion economic liberals who are useless and have little interest in fighting high taxes and big government....?

Because that's what Galt posted. It didn't make any sense to me.

All Christians aren't "evangelical", conservatives who are pro-life aren't "economic liberals", and all conservatives whether pro-life or pro-choice have a mutual interest in fighting high taxes and big government.

So I just didn't get where he was coming from.

on the other hand, Galt doesn't know whether Rand Paul is a Christian, nor does he care...
