Grammar is the structure of a sentence. Words form the structure of the sentence. "Two" different actions that form a cohesive sentence. If you spell a word incorrectly, it can effect the structure of your sentence, thus "two" different meanings may occur or the sentence could make no sense at all. Take your pick. I bet in your honors math class, you didn't use "too" for the number "two"??
Grammar is the structure of several different types of phrases, words, sentences, blah. spelling is the integral part of making sentences grammatically correct. you really are a republican, lets keep arguing about my mistake...its getting somewhere.

Yes, well this is about what I expected. You see, I wanted to know, because most do not realize where information for beliefs come from.
But it is clear to me, such ideas are from religion. One does not have these concepts in a vacuum. We have all heard of many ideas of gods, and we naturally will form an opinion based upon those ideas. So I many pick and chose what is plausible about a god and form ideas of what a god would be or do. This is why their are so many sects in Christianity, and so many different religions.

I would hope people would introspect this idea of where their beliefs come from and analyze it instead of just assuming it is god planting that thought there. If a god really planted such ideas, there would be no need for a bible, and their would be agreement on the concept of god, IMO. Yet clearly their is much dispute.

this is about what i expected, see i was an atheist as well. yes, religion had some influence...to say that an environment has no influence is idiosyncratic. i didnt pick and choose, there isnt an image in my head. i believe in extra dimensions, i believe that there could be beings which are far more sophisticated and expansive. i experienced something once and it wasnt organic and physical. i did believe that everything was organic and bound by physical science. well, i still do...to an extent. its not me spittin some melodramatic bs, this is just how ive been trying to explain it for a couple years now. i didnt force it on anyone and i havent passed laws in its name. so carry on cause with a lot of it i agree with you.

Those are astoundingly stupid but represent only a drop in an ocean of theft fraud, subsidies, loopholes, exemptions, incentives, etc.
For example: In NC state government, 3 cents of every tax dollar goes to corporate incentives with no assurance that jobs will be creatd.
<quoted text>
There is never any assurance any where that a job will be created. Those incentives and loopholes you are sternly against are designed to entice a business to come in and set up shop. Nothing more. Nothing is promised to anyone and it is foolhearty to think it is. Those corporate incentives are designed for companies like(example only) PPD, IBM, GE, Catepillar, Glaxco Smith Kline, the film industry and so on, will come to the state and do business. Part of that business is employing locals and transients.

North Carolina's bread and butter is agriculture. Has been before you or I were ever a thought. And the party you supported by a casting a vote in favor of wants to end farm susidaries, redistribute wealth through taxation and expect republicans to be more like democrats. Democrats fix things now, republicans fix things long term. Got to get some rest. San Fransico is a nice city, but I don't ever have to come back.

I have never advocated soaking the rich. All I want is for them to pay the same tax RATE that everyone else pays. We just can no longer afford welfare/socialism for the rich. I know republikans want to cut social security (which is still self sustaining) so that they can give tax breaks to the rich. That reverse socialism just isn't going to continue because the public is starting to pay attention to what happens their money.
<quoted text>
That is just junk; if they paid the same as you that would be less then they pay now. Is that what you want? I am sure that would be ok with them.

Republikans can't lead, cant follow and can't get out of the way. Republikans are so accustomed to obstructing that they are now refusing to raise taxes on the rich to avoid raising taxes even more on the rich --and everyone else. Does anyone see a disconnect in that logic?
This is kind of a parallel the the pre election decision by republikans to present a presidential candidate who would force their prejudicial evangelical Christians to chose between voting for a Christian or the white guy.
But then , no one has actually accused republicans of being logical.
So you are just a Racist.

Unfortunately, the public and congress has been unable to comprehend the enormity of our debt problem. I see congressmen speaking with obvious ignorance of the difference between debt and deficit. I see continued blind faith trust in the discredited "voodoo economics" idea that cutting taxes raises tax revenues. Our members of congress are too old to still believe in the tooth fairy. Now we are at the point that we either work together to right the ship or all sink with it.
Welfare/socialism to the rich? We are giving away 1.3 trillion dollars annually to the rich in loopholes, subsidies, exemptions, exclusions, incentives, no bid contracts, etc. By contrast, the total cost of all the payout to baby mommas, all the unemployed, all the WIC, all the food stamps, etc (all social programs combined) is less than 0.8 trillion dollars.
It doesn't matter if I oppose it or not, the reality is that socialism to the rich and poor has to stop in order to get our house in order. It would be nice if the tooth fairy was right and we could get out by just starving the poor or by soaking the rich. Unfortunately, we have to do both. Taking monetary policy away from the federal reserve bank will also be necessary but very politically messy. The last president to attempt that was JFK. We would not be in this present mess if he had been sucessful.

I am not discussing this with you because I feel your ideas are so dangerous, but more of a general discussion of the intellectual sort. I know it is offensive to hear what I have to say on the matter. But I feel cold hard honesty is the only way to emphasis the point.
While you are not trying to pass laws on the matter, your belief does embolden those who do. For one, claiming your experience was not organic is a bit to absolute of a claim. How can you know if it was organic or not? The religious often claim their experience must be of a god or miracle or something like this, only because they cannot explain it otherwise. Well just because someone does not know the answer, does not mean it has no natural answer, it only means you are unaware of the answer. Just as the ancients did not know the answer to what the stars and planets were, so they called them gods. You are doing no different than them in this respect. You are inventing a god due to lack of answers. This is how religion started, and it is how it evolves.
We know that Zeus does not make the rain and lightning so we no longer believe in Zeus. The gap of knowledge was filled and the god was no longer needed to answer the question.
So supporting the idea of filling gaps with a god is why it emboldens the more fanatical religious zealots to do what they do. It is all in the name of blind faith.
