Just a good judge of character. Obama was the wrong man to lead this country. Your own Democrats are beginning to see through the shallow politics. Why can't you?
Sure you are Carol, in the last election you backed the candidate who turned mendacity into an art form and made his fortune by screwing working people. Let's not forget that during his college days he was a big backer of the Viet Nam War and the draft but only for other people. He got himself a deferment and went to France. Now that's character.

I could discuss The Scientific Research, ongoing studies in various Scientific fields, domains but they are lengthy.

A CT Scan can see deeper into anatomical matter than an MRI, but I won't argue The Documentary and Readings.

Archeology has unearthed ( still ongoing ) the historicity of The Old Testament - But true, it cannot prove nor disprove The God of The OT Bible.

There is a lot of fact to prove a **Spiritual Realm exists. Scientific fact.
One just has to have in interest in being drawn to that knowledge.

It's an individual choice, interest.

**Is independent of ( a ) God - Not inclusive. But also not exclusive.

<quoted text>particle ahs absolutely nothing to do with any god.
no disproving that there is no god of any kind would be impossible, logically. but proving the god that the bible attempted to create false is possible and has been done over and over again..not a matter of faith, just fact.
that would be an fMRI not a CT scan...
there is absolutely not one shred of evidence to support any spiritual realm at all. or any spirit or soul at all..
nothing.

CBO Director: Actually, Obamacare Will Reduce Unemployment
President Obama's health care reform law isn't going to kill 2.5 million jobs, Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Elmendorf told the House Budget Committee on Wednesday.
One day after multiple media outlets misinterpreted a CBO report on Obamacare, Elmendorf clarified the CBO's position during the hearing. The federal agency, Elmendorf said, had found Obamacare “spurs employment and would reduce unemployment over the next few years."
“When you boost demand for labor in this kind of economy, you actually reduce the unemployment rate, because those people who are looking for work can find more work," Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) asked Elmendorf.
“Yes, that’s right,” Elmendorf responded.
A number of new organizations wrongly interpreted the agency's report Wednesday as saying that Obamacare "killed" 2.5 million jobs. In reality, the agency found Obamacare could shrink the workforce by the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time workers over the next 10 years.
But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Obamacare could cause a reduction in employment because it makes health care more accessible, allowing Americans to quit jobs they only keep for the health care coverage. That's not killing jobs. It's giving workers the ability to quit jobs they don't want.
Representative Van Hollen called the media out for misreading the report.
"As the media has themselves confessed, they bought -- hook, line and sinker -- some of the talking points from our Republicans, and unfortunately misrepresentations go around the world three times before the truth begins to catch up," Van Hollen said.

A fascist for sure. So much for liberal extreme leftwing so-called "tolerance".

Big whoop! If your son is anything like you, he won't amount to much. If he is working in Elizabeth Warren's office or that of any other Democrat, he is simply contributing to the decline of America.

Your son deserves to end college unemployed, thanks to you and your Democrats policies.

You should teach him how to apply for Food Stamps and an Obamaphone, dirtbag.

I have. In order to conclude there is no God, one has to first consider, ponder who or what God is, or isn't.

Therefore, a set of beliefs, a system, had to take place before one could arrive at Atheism.

In Philosophy, that thought process is known as Logical Deduction.

<quoted text>you should talk to atheists about that. most of them i know say they just think of atheism as pointing out the proven fact that the gods of man made religious cults are false and there is not one shred of evidence that any god, gods or godessess ever existed. or exist now....
not faith needed for that at all.

the only function of Congress is to pass legislation, not to serve as flunkies for constituent requests.....

if the Congressman is out of his office, get an answering machine....

and answer his own letters, if he chooses...

Congressional staff are worthless parasites feeding off the taxpayers...

besides, you're the one who brought up his worthless kid...don't talk about personal stuff if you can't take the feedback.....

oh a lot of the bible stories may have happened. and the places sure existed. that is what i have studied, is the history of that era.

first to prove a spiritual realm one would need the very first glimmer of fact to even suggest that it might exist so a hypothesis can be made....this first shred hasn't been found yet. just as there has not been found one shred of evidence for any god, gods, or goddesses...

nothing. nada. zip. zilcharino...zero.....

when you get that first bit to start any rational discusssion about it, get back to me...
