Well I wouldn't be so sure
"Who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rains from the earth, who maketh grass grow upon the mountains."
"He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries."
And probably the most appropriate:
"Fire and hail; snow and vapors; stormy wind fulfilling His word."
Anyway, enough bible study. What are her other issues? What are the issues of her opponent? Does she want to cut taxes and bring jobs back to Illinois? Does her opponent want to raise taxes and impose strict sanctions on business? I don't know this woman and since she's not in my district, don't really care. But I suggest you look at the other issues. I know you're smart enough than to be a one-issue voter. I suggest you do some research, on both candidates, and decide who's best to represent YOU, and your community. YOU might be happy with your government job and family cramped into a small apartment, but are your neighbors? Wouldn't you want a house, better opportunity? Higher paying job? Or are you happy being "stuck?"
More jobs bring more opportunities for people just like you. You haven't had these opportunities in 14 years. You willing to change that?
And you're as beautiful as church bells in the sunrise... with a cooing dove atop the steeple
;)
That's the problem, I can't (and won't) look at her stand on other issues because I can't get past the fact that she believes this. I do not want to be represented in the US Congress by a woman who will turn to the bible instead of science as a basis for her decisions on things like our environmental policies.

And I am perfectly happy with my life, my job, my abode. I have everything I need and do not need more, more, MORE! And I resent you calling me "stuck". That would seem to pertain more to you than me. I have plenty of opportunities for advancement in my organization; I *choose* not to pursue them at this time because I want to spend my energy on my children, not my job.

And flattery will not help.

And there's the problem. You stand on one issue and refuse to even look at anything else. And who's to say she's wrong? You scoff at her suggestion, but I scoff at blaming global warming. And many people use the bible as a tool to guide their conscious, so your statement doesn't make much sense

Edog is a cartoon character whose role is to be the annoying little brother in the group. The idea is you are supposed to love to hate him as he pokes and chides you, like a RL 10 year old.

However, the m-effer is likely serious about his political carp because teapublicans DO think that way. Just because a white woman who looks like a man who looks like a Silverback gorilla has an insane take on gay people, doesn't mean she can't have normal thoughts about other issues.

He's just looking at the bright side. If she was a democrat, he still like her....

When I think a politian ne is nutso and completely off on an issue to the point I question their logical thinking, pretty much that's all that I need to see to know I wouldn't trust them with much else.

I think the ability to think critically is important. Is it possible that she represents some of the things Iíd like to see happen, sure, but the same could be said of any candidate.

Just more hypocrisy we have come to expect from the left.
Thankfully liberals are a dying breed
Republicans are their own worst enemies at times, and this has nothing to do with the left Ö itís self-inflicted.

Down here, we had Duke energy pollute 70 miles of the Dan River with coal ash and a lot is coming out about how the Republicans have been complicit in allowing them to pollute. I donít understand why republicans are so anti-conservation and environment and why they would actively allow a private company to pollute.

Duke Energy has test wells on the perimeter of land that it uses to hold toxic waste. By monitoring these test wells, officials could determine if any pollution was leaching into the soil. The republicans re-wrote the law and allowed Duke energy to buy up neighboring properties to these sites and move the test wells further outward if any of the test wells started to indicate pollution. Why? Why not make them clean up their pollution and be responsible members of the community?

Conservation and environmentalism is conservatism to me. Being responsible for own actions, including causing environmental contamination, goes to the heart of what being a conservative is to me. While there are certain issues that are gray areas when it comes to how far to take things, certainly what has taken place down here is not a gray area.

Why is a private company allowed to keep a coal ash waste site, right next to a river too Ö a river Iíve taken my boys on and now I wouldnít let them come in contact with the water? How effing dumb can you be to think that is a good idea? Embarrassments like this happen far too often with the party. They shoot themselves in the foot all the time.

Oh, please. People on the other side do this all the time. The candidate is pro-choice, the right has no problem writing that candidate off on that fact alone.

Heard a story on NPR this morning about how the NRA is derailing the candidate for surgeon general because of *one* tweet about gun violence. Totally qualified, very smart and well-respected, would probably be awesome, but we will probably never know.

And my statement makes perfect sense. I did not say she would use the bible as a guide, I said she would use it as her basis, her foundation,her bedrock. My MIL uses at her guide too, and had come up with a completely different set of beliefs. And *that* is the problem; it is subject to many different interpretations and should not be used as a basis of our laws. You want to live like that? Be my guest, move to Iran or Saudi Arabia or the Taliban-controlled areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Last time I checked, the Republicans weren't in power in North Carolina. How is a polluted river their fault? It's the blame game all over again. You people should just change your name to the Blameocrats

I think that the networks are allowed to dictate their own programming,

And I think that before you go espousing why something *You* think should have been covered by every network on the planet was not, and blaming it on Racism against blacks and hispanics, Maybe you should ask them yourself instead of pulling race baiting reasons out your butt hole and presenting them as facts.

Maybe they did not cover it because they knew you would be watching and they wanted to pizz You off?

This was a truly ignorant post.

It's their fault because they constantly seek to water down environmental regulations.

Republicans are in power. We have a republican governor and both chambers of the state legislature are controlled by the republicans. They did lower our taxes, which I like, but they could still do that without some of the other things I don't like.

Kay Hagen is a democrat Senator, but she will be out after the midterms.

Now see- a deeply religious man who just happened to hate gays and American servicemen.

Now, does that make him a "bad" person?

Well, sure. But, I WOULD say that, wouldn't I?

I question whether people like that are truly religious or use religion as a means to an end.

C'mon Dog. Both sides get nut jobs on the ballot. In 1986 Adlao Stevenson III was a Democratic candidate for governor who wound up with a couple of Lyndon LaRouche-y for running mates. The party could not get her to withdraw and, as I recall, the Dems essentially conceded the election to the Republicans. Stevenson moved to run as an Independent. Didn't work.

http://www.nytimes.com/1986/03/28/us/stevenso...

The Republicans tried to dump the current one when she made her crackpot statements but she wouldn't go.

That is the beauty of our system- anyone can run. Even you.
