all you have to do is answer this question honestly and we are done here...
Let's go over my answers.
I never claimed to believe in the deity of Jesus.
Christianity is about the principles written in the New Testament, most notably peace, love, universal acceptance and tolerance. Considering you support Al Qaeda, you don't believe in peace. You're instigating class warfare, you don't believe in love. You're a race-baiting bigot, you don't believe in universal acceptance. You joined the Islamist terrorists, you don't believe in tolerance.

Thanks for playing. Next?

to be a christian. one has to accept that jesus was the son of the god in the old testament. this is fact you cannot dispute.
I'm thinking the Al Qaeda terrorists the US is training on a US military base in Jordan that slaughter entire villages in Syria because they have a Christian heritage thinks the same way you do.
So, were you a terrorist your entire life? Or, did you become a terrorist after some revelation?

Well let's see. You've "never" installed anything, I've installed "entire" multiple types of systems and you are the authority?
Baawwaahhh!!!!
Typical liberal.
Let's review.

1) You said geothermal HVAC systems can work as a stand alone HVAC in colder areas. I proved that wrong

2) You confused geothermal HVAC systems with air to ar heat pumps. I had to explain it to you

3) You sad that the presence of rock prevents holes from being drilled for ground loops. Again, this was ultra stupid.

Evidently, you don't know squat about geothermal systems.

You may have installed heat pumps but you obviously do not how how they work.

Everyday you weigh the odds of an accident with the need to drive somewhere.

When you run a chain saw, just like with most power equipment, you take the risk of an accident.

When you keep drugs in your house, you do increase the odds.

It doesn't change that:

when you keep a gun, you increase the odds of accidents, murder, suicide. The odds are that these things are likely to occur at a higher rate that that same gun being utilized in self defense.

So, the founders got it all wrong when they wrote a Constitutioin establishing checks and balances instituted with three co-equal branches of government, right? And they got it wrong again when they instituted the principle that the people can change the people in government if they don't like the direction the government is going, right? And they got it wrong again when they instituted the principle of limited government, right?

Be design and definition, governments are not to be trusted. If this weren't true, then there'd be no need for democracy.
You, and Obama, would know this if you A) had an education in history; and B) ever read the Cosntitution at least once in your life.

You're an idiot.

And you seem to be leaving out his Victory in the popular vote? Lmao!
I see you're also pretending to be ignorant of the fact that the Democrats were busted for programming voting machines to steal votes.
Finding the places where the Democrats were so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100% of the vote is child's play. Finding the places where the Democrats weren't so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100% of the vote, and instead programmed the voting machines to steal one in three or one in four votes is virtually impossible.

What percentage of the Demcorats programming the voting machines to steal votes were so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100% of the vote? That would normally be less than 10% of humans being that stupid, and more likely less than 5%.

Nobody knows what the vote was. If you want a recount, with computer voting machines, there's nothing to count.
So, today, we don't have a democracy anymore. How long do you think it will be before Americans fight over that?

You'd be one of the Democrats that would be stupid enough to program the voting machines to steal 100% of the vote, wouldn't you?

NAACP Requires Marchers Protesting Voter ID Law To Show Photo ID
FacebookTwitter Share Email
(Daily Caller)

North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday.

The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters.

According to official NAACP flyers passed out at the rally, protesters must carry the precise kind of ID that they would be expected to present at the voting booth.

You haven't got a clue how geothermal principles work. You think sinks and sources are infinite, moron.
Besides, you're a global warming nut.

Please explain to us again how a single house operates with the same effectiveness as when you put a thousand houses using the same sink and source. I'd love to hear that again.

Oh, yeah. Guns are needed to blow your ass away when you try to sneak through my window to rape my wife of steal my stuff.
Guns are also needed to protect someone who chooses to not arm themselves when you play the knockout game with them or mug them.
Guns are needed when you try to rob that convenience store you just pulled up into.

Yep! What all us who aren't brain dead libtards knew all along!!!!

(Washington Free Beacon)

A panel of terrorism and national security experts at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies said Wednesday that al Qaeda’s brand is the strongest its ever been, contrary to administration claims.

Bruce Hoffman, the director of the Center for Security Studies, said that the terrorist group has become more dangerous and has a larger international presence than eight years ago.

“You no longer have one big threat in one place with one clear leader, but many threats in a variety of places,” Hoffman said.“That I think is testimony to al Qaeda’s power. Al Qaeda is present today in more places than it was eight years ago, that’s indisputable.”

When Bush left office, Al Qaeda was holed up in caves with the Taliban in the mountainous tribal region on the Afghan-Pakistan border.
Since Obama was named president, Al Qaeda has grown to be bigger and stronger than they had ever been in their history, and are able to attack the United States thousands of miles away from the caves Bush had them holed up in, and can invade a country like Syria and fight a full-scale war with the Syrian army.
Only an idiot would think there isn't a connection.

So, we have a question that needs to be answered.

Since Al Qaeda has declared war against the United States, does that constitute Al Qaeda being an enemy of the United States, as referenced in the Constitution when it defines treason?

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

Is giving Al Qaeda arms and munitions treason?

Is ordering Al Qaeda terrorists be trained on a US military base in Jordan, then armed and sent to to invade another country treason?

Is helping Al Qaeda capital treason?

Is this related to the Democrats' plan to introduce a bill in the Senate to eliminate the death penalty for treason?(Just for treason. No other crime is referenced.)

God are you dumber than sh*t!

Let's review.

1) You meant to say "cannot" in this sentence. I said many people need a backup system due to the prohibitive cost depending upon their situation.
2) Wrong again.
3) Wrong again. Drilling through rocks, like the one in your head, is more expensive than drilling through sand.

Is there anything else you can screw up moron?

It's no wonder Obama was elected, with morons like you running around!

Now go back and argue with yourself some more, idiot!

It looks like we need to invade the United States and kick the Suni Islamists helping Al Qaeda out of the White House.

So, given Al Qaeda has declared themselves an enemy of the United States and is actively engaging in a war against the United States, is it treason to help Al Qaeda? Is it treason to give arms and munitions to Al Qaeda? Is it treason to order the US Armed Forces to train Al Qaeda terrorists on a US millitary base in Jordan? Is it treason to arm Al Qaeda terrorists and send them to invade another country?

Is it treason to be part of the planned assassination of a US ambassador in Benghazi?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

So, instead of a powerful centralized Al Qaeda capable of pulling off a 9-11, we have a bunch of smaller scattered localized Al Qaeda groups.

Of course, the team of former Republican administration people would find a way to make it seem worse after they failed to get Bin Laden.

I'll take the smaller scattered independent groups of Al Qaeda over the centralized beast any day.

More right whiners twisting the truth top further their political agenda.

FreedomWorks Chief Says GOP Senators Are Killing His Group's Funding

As part of their efforts to avoid the unforced errors that have cost them in the last two elections, Republicans have been playing "hardball" with would-be donors to a leading tea party group.

FreedomWorks chief Matt Kibbe told the New York Times in a story published Monday that leading Republican lawmakers have done their part to block donations to his group.

“I’ve been told by a number of donors to our ‘super PAC’ that they’ve received calls from senior Republican senators,” Kibbe told the Times.

Kibbe said those donors simply told him,“I can’t give to you because I’ve been told I won’t have access to Republican leadership."

"So they’re playing hardball," Kibbe said.

FreedomWorks is backing a number of conservative candidates trying to unseat GOP incumbents such as Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.

And while the effort has drawn the ire of Republican leadership, Kibbe doesn't mind his insurgent role. In October, he suggested that there's a "real possibility" that the GOP splits into two factions.

You do realize that the Senate report did not say Al Qaeda attacked the Consulate in Benghazi. Right?? Certainly you are informed enough to know that.
