How can you possibly say he is greedy when he has donated millions to charities? You have no idea what you are talking about!!!

<quoted text> you are totally nuts. on foreign policy and on Obama. first of all the people who want to bring down the economy of this country are the rightwing Republicans, the opportunistic Republicans, and the greedy crooked folks in corporations and the financial world (not necessarily the honest rich people, even though they would benefit financially from a Republican President and Congress). It was also Obama who took the risk of alienating Pakisan government and people by authorizing the raid into Pakistan to get Bin Laden - capture or kill, with choice left up to the military in the circumstances they encountered. He also has alienated Muslims by sending drones after Al Quida leaders, and thus risking killing innocent civilians among whom those leaders try to hide - this to fight Al Quida, and also to save American lives by not sending in more "boots on the ground" or pilot-and crew manned airplanes. If a Bush had done it you would have applauded it.
In Libya, Qadaffi was already called a terrorist for authorizing the downing of the airplane near Greenland seveal years ago. If a Bush had done it you would have applauded it.
In Egypt, and elsewhere, the socalled Arab spring was a mixture of all those harmed by the oppressive regimes. The air strikes called in to protect civilians in cities made it a humanitarian type operation. Not pro one side or another, just anti the side that was butchering civilians. Sort of as if someone had had the courage to stand up against the Nazis and Fascists when Mussolini and Hitler used Span as target practice and weapons testring grounds prior to WWII. Would you have been for Franco?
You are amazingly inconsistent - to rational seeming on religion, and so emotional and outright rightwing extremist on politics. I still think you have overreacted from your own youthful lefty extremism.
Did you ever tell us whether your views on religion are also a reaction against some part of your upbringing?
My Views on Religion are due to Education and the pursuit of Intellectual Honesty.... Nothing more, nothing less....

As for your projections on my views you are not even in the Ball Park... As for Qadaffi my view would have been to strike him directly within hours of determining his part in it... As for the up risings in the so called Arab Spring my views would have been Screw Em... It matters not a bit what I would think about the Governments of those countries.. I would not lift a finger in support of a armed uprising against such a government even if the Government was my enemy... Not My Problem... Unless those Government took actions against Me or my friend and then I would thump them in the head for those specific actions...(I am speaking from My position and what I would wish My Government would do in such cases)

In WW2 I would have stepped in the Instant Germany or Italy took actions against my Friends or my stuff... But I would not get involved in the armed uprising of any country, on either side unless there was a Direct Threat to Me or My Friends...

I was totally against ground troops into Iraq or Afghanistan... I was for Thumping them both in the head with many tons of HE though...

<quoted text> that was nice of you, and I bet you reward some of your models for your photos by feeding them well. and thanks for sharing the results. much as I oppose you on politics, I still am not hostile to you as I would be to someone who seemed hateful. you seem twisted, without being hateful - maybe by your past. but you should know that you are not given a complete pass when you are so intolerant and spread lies and propaganda like a Donald Trump idiot.
To the Twisted the straight only look twisted... As for giving me a pass I could give a crap what your personal misunderstandings of my views are... All I can do is explain it to you, I cannot understand it for you....

So since intrinsic racism was part of the Democratic past should we consider all democrats still racists?

Just like saying the pledge they should have the choice to say no but at least offer it to those who want it. I seriously doubt there are more opposed to this than those to encourage it. Oh and while there at it.... bring prayer back and the all mighty paddle. Kick these kids asses and teach them the right things and maybe society as a whole would benefit.

Until he trusts his money to American banks and divulges EXACTLY how he's going to reform the tax codes "You have no idea what you are talking about!!!"

<quoted text> maybe if you clarified exactly what you mean by a political partisan, I would not see your point as you meant to make it.
Do you think I should vote for anyone who calls himself a Republican when he supports Romney and Ryan and their slanders and lies? I can see not voting for some Democrat who is not good enough, but I cannot see voting for anyone who wears the label of Republican and supports the national ticket. I usually only vote for the ones I am for in my party. In the distant past I voted for halfway decent Republicans in order to defeat bad Democrats for Congress and Senate in Missouri - but that was an extreme situation after a plane crash killed the person actually nominated for the Senate, and after a 5-way primary resulted in the nomination of a rightwing Republican opportunist playboy backed by the Hunt family on the Democratic ticket - back in l976. And at that time, I even asked Bob Dole and David Treen to help good Democrats to defeat our bad Democratic candidates, by helping the nice enough Republican candidate for the House. Dole said, and I quote, of the socalled Democratic House candidate: "He's no Democrat! He raised money for CREEP!" He did not sound very friendly toward CREEP, either! and he was nominated for VP and came back to Mo to campaign for the GOP Congressional candidate.
But now there are so few GOP Congressmen who have any merit, and they would vote to put horrible persons like Issa of California in as Committee Chairman, so I would never vote for a Republican for the House or Senate, and have them support a horrible set of committee chairpersons. That is why people who think they are for Obama should have supported Democrats in 2010, or else they were as good as taking back their support for Obama because he was not a miracle worker. That would be the fault of their extremely stupid expectations, not of Obama or Democrats. The Democrats only had 60 votes in the Senate for 4 months, and that was not long enough to accomplish nearly enough.
Elections have consequences, especially legislative elections. Voting for some person because one thinks he has a nice personality - or she has a nice figure - is stupid. One should know the platform and historical record of one's political party - actually of both of them - in sufficient detail, to prefer one party - unless of course, one is so dumb or lazy or indoctrinated it is not worth the bother to know anything.
So I would want the possum to have a good staff, and a helper when it came time to vote, to push the right button. As Colbert showed with his delightful comic comment, even a horse could say neigh. and the horse would definately have a nicer personality and figure - even than Mr. Brown of Mass.
It may be a point of contention, but I trust CINOs, RINOs, DINOs, etc. far, far, far more than I trust hardliners.

Acts 1:3. After His suffering, He presented Himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. :-)

Wow. Stunning work in editing that video to make it sound the way Tea Baggers want it to sound. I like how it cuts off abruptly mid-sentence to make it sound like something it isn't. Whoever edited that thing was a hardcore fundie, hell bent on making a point whether it was there or not.

Pure nonsense.

ROFL. For someone who thinks ignorance is dangerous, you display an awfully large amount of it.
1. Wandering eyes doesn't cause marriages to break up. Money Issues and infidelity do. Verifiable fact.
2. Being gay has NO relation to being raised by a mother only. That is also verifiable fact and debunked myth. Gays come from all family types. Looking for a "reason gays exist" to support your belief that single mothers are bad for children is just bupkis.
3. Pushing for one's rights shouldn't be a problem for anyone, UNLESS you want to continue to oppress those persons. Saying gays shouldn't seek equal rights and treatment because it will upset fundamentalists is hilarious. That is like telling a kid to just take it from the bully, because standing up for themselves may just make the bully mad.
Before making blanket characterizations, please do some thoughtful research, because ignorance really is dangerous.
All meant was having Lust doesn't help the situation, I wasn't trying to sound condemning to anyone. I was discussing the problems that Lust can cause. Not always, but it can. I wasn't trying to be extremely specific on any issue there.
