How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he’s an Islamist until he’s made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al-Qaida. Is that the point at which you say,“This guy is dangerous?” That’s not a crime to call up al-Qaida, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?-- Chris Matthews

I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.-- Sheryl Crow at the Huffington Post

Here’s to the Greeks. They know what to do when corporations pillage and loot their country. They know what to do when Goldman Sachs and international bankers collude with their power elite to falsify economic data and then make billions betting that the Greek economy will collapse. They know what to do when they are told their pensions, benefits and jobs have to be cut to pay corporate banks, which screwed them in the first place. Call a general strike. Riot. Shut down the city centers. Toss the bastards out. Do not be afraid of the language of class warfare—the rich versus the poor, the oligarchs versus the citizens, the capitalists versus the proletariat. The Greeks, unlike most of us, get it.— Chris Hedges


And this is what has happened to the Greek pension funds.......Not exactly what libroid Hedges said.

"t was a brutal sign of the fury many Greeks feel at the way the country's debt crisis has dashed hopes of a comfortable old age. Greece's pension funds - patchily run in the first place, say unionists and some politicians - have been savaged by austerity and the terms of the international bailout keeping the country afloat.

Workers and pensioners suffered losses of about 10 billion euros ($13 billion) just in the debt restructuring of March 2012, when the value of some Greek bonds was cut in half. That sum is equal to 4.6 percent of the country's GDP in 2011."

I realize that many of the posts on here (by numerous posters) are more insult laden than they are substantive, but posts like this only hurt your argument. I absolutely do not agree with gay marriage, it is beyond ridiculous to start redefining marriage in this country. But I also have gay friends and gay family members and most of them are Christian. My personal belief is that they should live a celibate lifestyle, which is easy for me to say. But even if they don't, I certainly do not believe they are damned.
I think the very next page from your original post contains a post by you that has some beautifully written statements about Jesus' love for us and his sacrifice for us all. It is hard to reconcile posts like that one with the one I am referencing here. You have the right to post anything you want, in any way you want, but you are only helping those you oppose with vitriol like that above.
