Let's see, who do I think qualify as "terrorists" - Republicans who ran on repealing Obamacare and when they are sent to Washington actually try to keep their campaign promises?

Or Democrats who tried to defund the Iraq War when troops were already deployed and in harm's way and needed Congressional funding for ammunition and body armor.

Hmmmm, gee that's a toughie - not.

I see your point, honey. But try to see mine - I try (especially recently) to avoid antagonizing certain posters that I know a confrontation will come to no good end- but when they seek me out with non-descript (or as you say childish) repetitive insults- like "irony of this post from this poster- do you have any idea how many times he has used the same lame BS- is he unimaginative or just trying to piss folks off? I would never go as far as to say what OMTE said about wishing him dead, etc.,I just wish he would refrain from responding to my posts- as I have done to his.

I have already had this out with IO awhile back.
I am not a Bush fan but he did serve in the military and is a veteran. At least he did give time and sweat to serve our country and I admire that in any person, whether it be man or woman.
Many that have something to say about Bush and his service have not ever been in the military and put their lives on the line. They have never watched their buddies die around them. They have never lived the horrors of war. Even if you are not in an actual conflict you know that you could be called upon at any time to enter a serious conflict. That is why they train all the time.
It is easy to make little of someone else until you walk in their shoes. At least Bush did serve and that's a lot more than most of you. You should respect that. Don't throw rocks if you live in glass houses.

Other than Jimmy Carter, of the killer Rabbit incident, one has to go back 45 years to find another demo who served in the armed forces.
While Repubs, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush senior, and Bush junior all served...

Why is that so?
From my understanding, faith was the guiding principle behind the formation of this country, in defining how we interact and politics is one way that we do it.
The political system is the vehicle by which nations manage their societies is it not?
Having a principled leadership would keep those societies just and conversely having a leadership guided only by self-centered goals would not, it would lead to chaos.
The humanist view that we need not a power greater than ourselves is a cruel system where the strong devour the weak.
A Christian view tells us to look after the weakest.
Taking God and Christianity out of the public square will be the undoing of this society. Just ask Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

Typical Lib, thinks they can speak for "everyone", when they are actually speaking for an obnoxious few. Bill has schooled quite a few of the clueless on here about taxes - not that it does any good. If you happen to be one of the few Lefties on here who understand how our tax system works - goody for you. Let me "school" you on something else, you have no clue how many on here know or have met Bill and like him quite well, thank you very much. And if posting is a measure of one's need for attention - if one were to compare the numbers of posts that you make versus those Bill occasionally makes I wonder who it would be that looks like they are seeking attention.
Just one question, why to the Tea Party repugs never win? just whine like little piglets. They grow in what is nothing more than intellectual manure but can't exist outside of that medium, almost exclusively found in poorer sections of the South.

I usually don't read the uninformed one's posts, but I was looking at the words before I noticed the name of the poster...

If someone doesn't have (won, awarded or earned, or in the case of a recent Nobel Prize winner, GIVEN) something, they can't complain about the actions of another? Really? Seriously? Last time I checked, this was a free country and we could pretty much say what we want.

This is a GREAT example of potential straw man arguments, surprised the King of such arguments didn't expand into it.

IF someone with different political beliefs (one of the good guys) had made this silly comment, the uninformed one could have "countered" with: "Oh, so it's not OK to complain about someone beating or abusing their spouse. Since you're not married, you can't complain about something somebody married does"...

We can't complain about somebody stealing a foul ball from someone (another fan) at the stadium because they didn't buy a ticket to attend the game?

Even the cartoon name who doesn't vote can complain about the government, can't he?

"I'll believe you"

WRONG. We have the right to complain about whatever we want. Even the cartoon name who doesn't vote can complain about the government, can't he?

Maybe that's because we're not members of a union...:)

Just sayin'...

I found this portion particularly interesting:
"At pivotal moments in Obama's presidency, DuBois sometimes selects texts that offer lessons apropos of the challenges at hand. Before one State of the Union address, it was the words of Isaiah, in an appeal for clarity of speech: "So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth, it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose."
So is this pastor so confused that he would take the words of the prophet Isaiah, the words of God Himself and put them into obama's mouth and by doing so have obama declare that he is God?
If this was supposed to be a P/R move by the AP to convince people of obama's faith, it will backfire badly.
