"You can conduct byzantine transactions through opaque investment accounts and private corporations in offshore tax havens such as Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. Or you can credibly run for president at a time of great economic distress.

I don’t think you can do both."

God is of the spiritual realm...which is the "other realm" my astrology professor inadvertantly blurted out.
It's the spiritual world that always stumps mortals down here on this little planet floating around in space.
We didn't know why the Sun went across the sky so we assigned a god to the task. Now we understand why the Sun appears to travel across the sky so we don't need a god to do the job any more.

You're still assigning a god to everything you don't understand. Rational people just accept there are some things they don't understand yet.

What's ironic is that there's probably an evolutionary component to this propensity towards belief. Its undeniable that belief systems did a lot towards uniting human groups and this ability to organize groups is the key to our evolutionary success. So, you probably have an instinct towards belief just like you had an instinctive fear of the dark. Are you still afraid of the dark?

When we get this sort of response to an argument does it indicate surrender?

Do or do not Irani children learn in school and in mosques cute little sing-song melodies that demonize Jews in the lyrics?
Do or do not Irani tyrants call America the "Great Satan" and Israel the "Little Satan"?
Since you defend Iran as some kind of victim, answer these two questions before calling anyone else stupid.
I don't know and you certainly don't know. People like Pamela Geller are telling you all sorts of BS and you like the sound of it so you buy it.

What I do know is that Israel has openly threatened Iran and Iran has said they would defend themselves from attack.

Why did Ron Paul not run in 2012 as a Libertarian?
Ron Paul is of the "change from within" school. I've always been of the "change from without" but don't begrudge his strategy, he's enjoying more success than my side of the discussion is. I just hope some of his success spills over to we on the outside.

As a teenager (as your article points out) Romney hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho and shot quail recently. Which gives him experience as a hunter.
Doesn't necessarily make him an expert hunter.
Your excuses for Romney are as ridiculous as the excuses you made for Gingrich, Trump, Cain and the rest of the clowns you supported.
Twist and turn all you like. The guys a flat out liar, forget "fip flopper". While you make excuses for his daily "pretzel twisting' contortionist routine the Republican Party is hitting the panic button.

Time for One More Flip-Flop

By W. JAMES ANTLE, III on 7.6.12 @ 6:10AM

Flip-flops have hurt Romney in the past because they have made him look like a phony. But here it is Romney's current position that makes him look phony, while sounding stubborn and incoherent to boot. This is one Romney position where a long overdue change would do him good.

Someday when you are lying on your death-bed, you just may miraculously open your eyes and see the light.
But maybe not. At least in your particular case.
But who cares about you anyway?

60 Min Interview:

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
Mr. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: For example that,‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?
Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c–I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.?(George Soros, 60 Minutes interview transcript, December 20, 1998)

As a boy.

He was hiding from the Nazis. His new "father" had the job of tallying the Jewish estates the Nazis were taking. He took his "son", Soros with him when he could not leave him at home.

To take these tragic events as a young boy & declare hm a Nazi Collaborator is just wrong.

I'll add you to the list of dumbass Beck lovers.

Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod on Thursday hammered Mitt Romney over his offshore bank accounts, calling the former Massachusetts governor the “most secretive candidate that we’ve seen, frankly, since Richard Nixon.”

“The only reason to have these accounts is to shelter your taxes,” Axelrod told ABC News.“The question is, exactly what did he pay, and I think that he — there’s only one way to answer that question. If you don’t have anything to hide, why not just release that information? And Gov. Romney really doesn’t have a good answer for that.”

Yes, you should have that talk with Mitt.
