...You see, as long as we pretend Jesus wasn't all about social justice, "people before profits" liberation, and shared sacrifice and gain, we don't have to accept responsibility for pursuing those goals ourselves.

Next thing you know you'll be claiming we all originate from some African region that makes 98% of our DNA African.
But I can show you studies that prove conservatives give more than liberals, and everyone knows that such quantitative data of monetary transfer is the only proof worthy of discussion. Besides it's a well known fact that people are willingly seeking the dependency of $50/week food assistance, rather than working to feed themselves.

Worse than the thought of our African origins...

Bonobos Join Chimps as Closest Human Relatives
by Ann Gibbons on 13 June 2012, 1:30 PM
http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2012/06...

Chimpanzees now have to share the distinction of being our closest living relative in the animal kingdom. An international team of researchers has sequenced the genome of the bonobo for the first time, confirming that it shares the same percentage of its DNA with us as chimps do. The team also found some small but tantalizing differences in the genomes of the three species—differences that may explain how bonobos and chimpanzees don't look or act like us even though we share about 99% of our DNA.

...Ever since researchers sequenced the chimp genome in 2005, they have known that humans share about 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees, making them our closest living relatives. But there are actually two species of apes that are this closely related to humans: bonobos (Pan paniscus) and the common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes). This has prompted researchers to speculate whether the ancestor of humans, chimpanzees, and bonobos looked and acted more like a bonobo, a chimpanzee, or something else—and how all three species have evolved differently since the ancestor of humans split with the common ancestor of bonobos and chimps between 4 million and 7 million years ago in Africa.

Could some of the Right Wing Wackos explain again how Obama is a liberal -

Another Billionaire joins the Investment Bankers running the country.

Any doubt that after he leaves office he gets 5 or 6 of those 3 day a year, million dollar compensation, seats on these companies' boards of directors ?

Yep .... Another wild eyed liberal revolutionary socialist commie put into power by Obama.

Ptitzker Understated Income, Files Amended Disclosure

If confirmed to run the Commerce Department, Pritzker Realty Group LLC Chairman Penny Pritzker would be among the wealthiest cabinet secretaries in U.S. history.

Chicago billionaire Penny Pritzker inadvertently understated a portion of her income by at least $80 million in a disclosure form required for her nomination to be U.S. Commerce secretary and has amended the document.

The omission, discovered by Pritzker’s financial advisers, was due to a clerical error, said Susan Anderson, the nominee’s spokeswoman.

“It is a substantial amount and we moved to correct the mistake as soon as it was discovered,” Anderson said in an e-mailed statement.

Documents released last week show Pritzker received $32.2 million for a decade’s worth of consulting on the restructuring of domestic trusts. The filings released yesterday show she earned at least $80 million for that work, according to Bloomberg’s compilation of the data. The revised total is in addition to the amount reported last week, according to Anderson.
Hyatt Hotels (H)
Pritzker, whose family founded Hyatt Hotels Corp (H)(H)., is scheduled to testify on her nomination before the Senate Commerce Committee tomorrow. She disclosed last week that she earned $54 million in consulting fees last year for a similar restructuring of trusts based in the Bahamas, also over 10 years. The Bahamas’ income wasn’t changed in the amended disclosure document.

The nominee is worth more than $1.5 billion, according to estimates from the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. If confirmed, she would be among the wealthiest Cabinet officials in U.S. history.

Duh-
Sarcasm is not wit. You lose again hapless poster.
Only you were expecting something other than what was delivered.

sarcasm
- The use of irony to mock or convey contempt.

mockery
- Derision; ridicule.
- An absurd misrepresentation or imitation of something.

facetious
- Treating serious issues with deliberately inappropriate humor; flippant.

Course one would have to consider the issues of spelling and grammar to be a serious issue in this forum, only then could my response be deliberately inappropriate.

Thanks for playing.

The other conservatives bash Obama, too. That has NOTHING to do with why you won't answer the questions. I'm not trying to start an argument with you. You have defended Obama and his regime, but you can't tell us why. Does that make sense to you?

A liberal cannot answer questions for two primary reasons. Number one, they just don't know the answer. Number two, their answer, right or wrong, does not serve their agenda. A liberal's main strategy is too keep their talking points alive and involved in controversy. It does not serve their voter recruitment efforts to solve any issue. Anyone who doesn't believe that only has to look at obamacare and this so called immigration bill. Niether one solves any problems whatsoever, only serving to keep the issue in the headlines, and make the clueless and uneducated out there believe that they are doing something for them. A liberal's agenda is the ultimate in hypocrisy.

Ask a liberal what the end result or goal of government programs is supposed to be. Ask them if any have achieved their goals and the program ended. Liberals go on and on about "the power of the people", yet need multiple waste ridden, conflicting, overlapping programs to take care of them, really?

You have explained that so well. Great post. I knew it, but I wanted someone else to jump in to show the libs that the conservatives are miles ahead of their thinking. Now! This is another thing that someone else needs to point out. Obamacare and the immigration bill will affect them in a negative way just like it will the rest of us. WHY don't they get that? They are going to be pushed to the back of the line, too. It is ASTOUNDING that they: 1. Don't care. They just want to be "right".
2. Are too brainwashed to believe it will be so ugly. 3. Think it WON'T affect them. Only the "hated" conservatives will be affected.

So, to provide context you reference a page that is full of quotes that are pulled out of context. But I can certainly see where all of this would frieghten white folks (1969 was a scarey time for some), and to think that the 2nd Amendment is color blind. Fortunately we have you to show the path of the True Christian, it's simply unimaginable that a personal relationship with Christ might actually produce a million different points of view.
And I also suggested you go to google books and read the preface to the book - that gives you all the context you need - sort of ignored that didn't you?

I will repeat: what possible context could make those quotes acceptable and consistent with the message of the New Testament? Christ reserved his greatest anger for those who perverted God's message (money changers, Pharisees) and his greatest sorrow for those who would not accept his message (the young ruler). In MY OPINION, I would say Cone (and Wright) fit right into that first category. If you think to "shame" me for questioning that what was preached in that church was "true" Christianity - you are failing miserably. Christ did not preach the hatred and bigotry that the mission statement that Wright established for that church was based on. But fine, you want to somehow claim that an objective reading of the New Testament in total could come up such hatred - be my guest.

But this whole discussion can about from a question about non-Republican ministers. So let's leave that and go on to why so many of us thought Wright was a legitimate topic of discussion before Obama was elected. Republicans are constantly accused of racism - we can't possibly disagree with Obama on policy, it HAS to be because he is black. And yet, Obama sat in a church for 20 years listening to a minister that espouses Black Liberation Theology and somehow claims that he never heard anything approaching any of the following - he must have missed a lot of church:



So forget the "million different points of view" you claim as support for Cone and Wright's racist interpretation, I guess you really have no problem with Obama sitting in a church that preached that hate. Did you have a problem with the questions Romney was asked about the influence of the Mormon Church on his views and policies?

And there was a generous amount of political speech thrown in there - hey, IRS do you care, or are you too busy hassling people who "criticize the government"?

(What does the 2nd Amendment and colorblindness have to do with anything?)

Once again you've revealed the deep dark tactics of the liberal socialist commie gay rainbow atheist plot to subvert America thru voter recruitment. But it goes far beyond simple voter recruitment and into the very voting booth by creating a dependency on health care, a dependency on free food, and all manner of subsidy and assistance for a majority of the population who willingly seek to live in poverty just so they can be eligible for free stuff..

Your continued efforts to educate the clueless should not go unrewarded, please accept this simple recognition as a token of our heartfelt gratitude.

OMTE, I'm not trying to embarrass you. I like you. I am asking you because I thought you would be honest. You aren't alone. None of your liberal buddies on Topix can answer the questions either. A few months ago, I asked CB what Obama had done for him. After MANY requests, he finally posted some cut and paste list that didn't address one thing that is going on. Nothing. If I had placed THAT much faith in someone and that person had basicallly slammed the door in my face, I would question why I keep going back for more. You call it bashing Obama. I call it trying to make it clear that you and the liberals are being "played" to the hilt. You don't like the immigration problem. Congress, along with Obama's direction, are trying to pass an immigration bill that will be a calamity FOR US. You can't pick and choose what you support. You are either in or out. By supporting Obama, you have "figuratively" given him your support in whatever he decides he wants to do. At least the Republicans want to secure the border FIRST. The Democrats don't want to do that. It's all about the votes in the next election. They want to SECURE the votes and to heck with the citizens in this country. The members of congress won't be exposed to the riff raff like we will. They have their money and power to protect them.
