Your question is the reason there should a complete separation of church and state.
However, to give my "opinion": Jesus wouldn't necessarily "kill" programs but he would make severe cuts to the military machine and increase taxes on the wealthy.
Jesus Christ, whether you believe he was the Son of God or not, was certainly a liberal, a progressive, a true socialist.

Funny how all these asshats who claim to support the teachings of Christ actually defy his teachings in their hatred for the poor.

Jesus loved the poor. Jesus worked his entire life to bring respect to the poor.

He fed the poor, washed their feet, showed his love for them daily.

"Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven"

What don't you understand about "shortened" yellow lights? Using your logic, we should all start putting on the breaks for green lights just in case we get a yellow. Geez.

You don't attack the poor and act like they're moochers and wish them to suffer and die.

That makes you very different from the haters here..........Nobraina stands out..........and Carol..........

Difference is, you acknowledge how Gov't has helped you in your life.

Nobraina and the nitwits deny all the good Gov't provides to society. While they collect their own Gov't handouts..........

Woodhead fails to understand that short yellow lights and wide intersections do not allow sufficient time to exit the intersection before the light turns red.......

and notorious red light cameras require slowing even when the light is green.....

drivers jam on the brakes as soon as they see a yellow light....
Galt agrees with voting out the politicians.......
thenare shitty drivers and shouldn't be driving. and if you stay the proper distance behind the vehicle in front of you, you will never rear end them no matter what they do. it will also greatly reduce your chances of being rear ended as you will not have to react suddenly.

this is what i mean by driver training...
obviously, you never had any.

FOX talking head....
Every person who talks and writes about politics gets stuff wrong. I’ve gotten my fair share wrong. But what I think I got most wrong in Campaign 2012 was the damage Mitt Romney’s “47%” remark would do to him.
It may seem obvious, but bear with me.
Mitt Romney was talking off the cuff to a supposedly off the record group of donors and muddled several data points together, ultimately telling the tale of the 47% who won’t vote for him for any reason. He was referencing the 47% who don’t pay taxes and interwove it with a 47% of locked in Obama support. The statement was a mess.
I didn’t think Mitt Romney would be as hurt by the statement as he was because I assumed Romney had misspoken in an off the cuff way. I assumed Romney would clarify that he knew many of those who have government assistance did not actually want the assistance, but needed it. I assumed he’d make the case that he’d help those people get off the government dole and back into work.
In other words, I assumed Romney believed what I believe — many of those people are good people who fell on hard times and are not of the same class of people who will vote for Barack Obama for free stuff. I was absolutely wrong. Romney not only believes completely what he said as he said it, he reinforced it with his post election analysis of his defeat blaming gifts to various classes of people. If that was true, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, Romney had plenty to gift to plenty strapped to the back of marching elephants.
Note to Mitt Romney: really, it’s you, not them. Seriously.

it's a crying shame that right wing nutjob BS couldn't get Mitt into the WH.
funny thing is.....in 2016 the nutjob faction will take another unabated go with the BS(re: your post that i'm replying to), and get their ass handed to them. again.

do you propose banning all foreign corporations from operating in the US.....
your argument is silly.....
Hey Nobraina, your stupidity is showing..........again!!

Of course the Gov't treats foreign and US Coroprations differently.

Remember when the Dubai Company wanted to run American shipping ports??

I'll bet you supported the Gov't denying them the right to do so!!

The pipeline crosses an International Border, dipshit. Deal with it.

You're so reliably ignorant, you're hardly any fun at all..........

I suppose it depends on the state although the bet is that the recipients will pay rather than challenge.

Few wish to gamble against having their driving privilege revoked by the state which can happen causing insurance rates to spike not to mention the potential employment problems.

Here, in the theme park capital of the planet a good percentage of the cars running red lights are rental cars which presents additional problems__who pays those tickets?

Unintended consequences.

And then, folks can purchase slick little license tag covers that can't be read from an angle, your pal George Zimmerman had one. Might still.

he didn't in that post. are the people of these towns so stupid they don't time the lights if they are that obviously shorter?

i have yet to see any documentations of this supposed short light syndrome and how long would it last? at most a week? or are people in your towns really that slow?

You said:
>>The use of cameras was suspended here a couple of years ago due to the internal amber light timers were indicating the amber lights were on longer than they actually were.<<
You're saying an electronic system is unable to correctly measure the cycle time, and it can't be properly measured, controlled, or corrected electronically.
That is as stupid as anything I've seen. I'm 100% certain your explanation is full of crap, simplistic rantings of an old fool.
Why are old people like you so clueless about technology?? That explains why the old Teabags deny science and climate change. You're living in the past.
Nowhere does it say they were unable to correctly measure the time cycle. That was you're deduction. They are fully capable of measuring time. The inference is the time cycles were being manipulated.

wouldn't the rental agencies have teh name, DL and credit card info of who rented that car on that day?

send them the receipt off their credit card charge...

great story from my folks down in AZ they have the speed cams in their city and a young girl was \spending the summer at her folks home while they were traveling and she repeatedly blew through the cameras she didn't know were there while driving daddy's sports car... of course the tickets were sent to her parents and she didn't open their mail...she racked up hundreds of speeding tickets!
