Yes. Battery-Operated only.

I wouldn't want to see you electrocute yourself in that position.

Can you be embarrassed in death?

In a country of over 300 million, winning by 5 million isn't that wide of a margin.
Obama/Biden - 65,910,437
Romney/Ryan - 60,932,795
Just in California and New York alone, the difference was just over 5 million in Obama's favor. So there you go.
Like I said, not a wide margin nationwide. In most all other states, the margin of victory was relatively very slim.
And what percentage of that small margin was the result of Black Panthers, ACORN and other cheaters on the fly enlisted across the country?

I'm not sure about you but I am very amused but also tired of hearing Progressives lecture me about how they know that Jesus was a Liberal Democrat.
This is supposed to make me less likely to fuss when the Magic Negro steals my wallet.
Can pretty safely say that Jesus would not have admonished Cesar to forcibly take money from the haves and give it to the have-nots. He admonished us all to give and to give with a cheerful heart because, as he said, God loves a cheerful giver.

Few are cheerful about giving when it's forcibly taken. And then wasted by big government.

We're supposed to take care of each other. Cesar had his hands full with corruption and immorality. Sort of like today.

Have you noticed how Oprah and other Liberal trash are jumping in to fix his broken image?
The Magic Negro has been exposed and Progressive toadies are busy trying to dress him back up. Hilarious.
Have you noticed how rightwhiners become more and more hysterical as their only hope of repealing what will become a popular law is now over?
Ronald Reagan railed against Medicare as socialism that would ruin America?

And, of course, your so blinded by your own hatred, you have no basis of truth to back up that horrible accusation.
Too many women have too many children they can't afford with too many different fathers and too often have them on purpose to get more welfare.
Young black women have publicly admitted this was true.
There's a social breakdown within many segments of the black community, and maybe if more black leaders - besides Bill Cosby - addressed it, they could collectively find solutions.
Right, you stupid bigot.
It's only a Black problem.
And make sure to blame the victims, the children that actually made it out of the womb.
Your bigotry is on display here every day...day in day out for YEARS!

Tolerate me here for a few seconds, OK?
"Charles Chaplin, Jr. liked to tell about the time his father attended a contest to see who could do the best Chaplin imitation.
Dozens of contestants, all wearing the battered black hat and baggy suit and carrying that trademark cane, got up and did their best to simulate the famous walk and two or three of the movements that had made Chaplin known throughout the world.
Without identifying himself, Chaplin got up on the stage and did the routine.
He came in third."
----- From *First Draft* by Charles Chaplin, Jr.
How many Elvis's do a better Elvis routine than Elvis?
A better Bogart than Bogie?
Image is everything. Images are bigger than the person they portray.
We have a weasel in the White House but the image he's painted with is now in a tug-of-war with reality. Weasel or Wunderkind? His trying to attach himself to Mandela now is an attempt to paint over the Weasel.
Mandela, MLK, JFK, Bubba Clinton...heck, even Henry Louis Gates and "creative genius" Kanye are all images bigger than the midgets inside.
You might recall *Men In Black" where a huge monster was controlled by this frail little creature inside. Darth Vader was a crippled warthog beneath the shimmering black cover of evil.
These images grow, mature and strengthen by both the efforts of the handlers and the person being handled but especially by those who admire the celebrity. Charlie Chaplin had lost control of his image. It had become more than he was.
Today, we see Americans, Liberals especially, who want and need an image to match what they believe inside of the heart of hearts. The Magic Negro fulfills this image making gift from Heaven. He can do no wrong. He is always right, upright and forthright. He doesn't lie, he's selfless and he would die for us is need be.
This sounds like the 15 year old teen who wants to believe that the guy loves here. He loves me, He loves me not...He loves me, He loves me not.....
America needs to grow up in this dangerous age.
Very astute observation. If Obama had never been seen or heard but everything we knew about him was reported routinely and his words were published routinely, it's doubtful that many would have voted for him - much less the majority.

So you're right. Image is everything in today's world, and we have to be extremely careful to discern the image from the reality.

Or else we will end up where we are now again.

Angry that a Black man defeated the rightwing bigots?
Newsflash, it will happen again. That cat's out of the bag, exposing the rightwingers for the racist assholes they are.

Seems some liberal Christians think other Christians who aren't liberals are deserving of hateful personal attacks. It's okay to attack conservative ideologies until the cows come home. And even conservatives in power. But they make the attacks personal instead. Not very nice.
It's also okay for Christian liberals to sit in judgment of conservative ideologies if it's justified from a Christian standpoint. But they sit in judgment of other Christians who just aren't liberals instead. Again, not very nice.
Liberalism and Christianity aren't one and the same. Some liberals seem to think so. The same ones who, oddly enough, attack Christianity at every opportunity. It's very confusing.
I'm strongly opinionated too but separate my beliefs from politics. My opinions about abortion, for example, are focused on protecting the rights of all human beings - even those without a voice.
That, to me, is more of a political stance even if my strong feelings about abortion are very much based on my personal spiritual awareness.
Anyway, I believe Christians should try and be civil with all people whether they agree with their politics or not. The liberal Christians on here saddens me sometimes.
I spoke earlier about how the Magic Negro will change definitions if he doesn't like the words. Bubba Clinton did this, too(define *sex* for me, he demands)

But, in a larger and general sense, Liberals are slaves to this method of deception and almost to a point that they might call it a political "philosophy". If you like Jesus, they will find a way to use the life of Jesus against you, for example. If you find a Biblical passage that forbids the gay lifestyle, they will change definitions and correct you in you poor interpretation of the Gospel, the Word of God.

Killing an unborn child is horrendous but, here, they also find a way to change definitions to make it all better. An unborn child is nothing more than a common wart. "I have had a wart removed countless times in my life". I have listened to woman very casually, nonchalantly brag about their wart removals. They are "liberated" women of this New Age.

It's cheaper to kill 'em than to adopt them out or raise them. Simple economics, ya know.

So there. It's all better now.

And then we have countless aborted babies found inside of garbage dumpsters, inside of restroom wastebaskets at HS Prom dances and then, as a nation, we ask just how and why did Life get so cheap? Why do grade school children get shot up? Why are homeless cats and dogs a higher national concern than saving the lives of children?
