You seem desperate to change the subject. Some people LIKE that Bishop Rmoney is a moderate PRO-CHOICE candidate running alongside all the anti-science congressional Republicans. It's a refreshing sense of balance.

So when we elect Bishop Rmoney, we have to just TRUST him, to do what it RIGHT for himself.
One of the opposition talking points during the 1960 election was that if JFK, a Catholic, were elected, the Pope would be governing the US from Rome. The John Birch Society was the author of the most vicious attacks. In Kennedy's tragically short administration, there was no evidence to validate this claim. In terms of Romney's Mormon faith, there are many who are implying that Romney's Mormon faith will be the nation's downfall. I know the history of the faith, since Joseph Smith was a native of a county near here. Whether one wishes to accept the beliefs of the Church of Latter Day Saints or reject them is an option provided by the Constitution which guarantees that there would be no law governing the free practice of one's religion. The only change that would be likely to occur would be the absence of alcohol, caffeine and tobacco products in the White House. The uninformed believe that the Mormon Church condones polygamy. In fact those who practice polygamy are immediately excommunicated. The value system that is promoted by the Mormon hierarchy is conducive to healthy living. Somehow I doubt that Romney has ever attended a Mormon service in which the clergyman "God damns America."
I don't recall, was JFK a Catholic Bishop? I'm for a liberal PRO-CHOICE Mormon theocracy. That's why I support Bishop Rmoney.

Bishop Rmoney is the Mormon WHITE HORSE. He will bring back POLYGAMY.

The Days Of Creation
Here's a list of what God created on each of the six days of creation:
Day 1: The heavens, the earth, light and darkness.
Day 2: Heaven
Day 3: Dry land, the seas, and vegetation.
Day 4: The sun, the moon and the stars.
Day 5: Living creatures in the water, birds in the air.
Day 6: Land animals and people.
Day 7: God "rested".
Dinosaurs were created on day six.There is something interesting to note in this list. Let me ask a question:
What are most dinosaurs?
They are land animals.
When were all land animals created?
Day six. So on what day must dinosaurs have been created? On day six, the same day people were created.
That's interesting. Could it be the Bible is saying people lived with dinosaurs? Is there any evidence that people lived with dinosaurs? The answer to both of these questions is, "yes". But let's start at the beginning to understand what the Bible is saying.
How Long Is A Day?
There is a theory that says each of God's days in Genesis were actually millions of years for us. Is this true? Maybe we need to ask what does the word "day" mean in Genesis?
sun riseThe Hebrew word "yom" is translated as day in Genesis. Just as our word "day" can have different meanings based on its context, so can the word "yom". For example, in the Old Testament "yom" is translated to mean a 24 hour day 1109 times. It means a long, long period of time--such as an age--about nine times.
However, every time the word "yom" is used with the term evening or morning in the Bible, it means a regular 24 hour day.
Every time the word "yom" is used with a number, such as "40 yom" (40 days), it means a regular 24 hour day.
What we now see is that in Genesis chapter one God is going out of His way to emphasize that each day is a normal 24 hour day. For example in verse five He says:
"And there was evening and there was morning, one day."
Verse 8: "And there was evening and there was morning, a second day."
Verse 13: "There was evening and there was morning, a third day."
For each day of creation the pattern is the same: evening, morning, number, day. Just part of that pattern, for example using the words "evening" and "day" together, tell us it was a 24 hour day. But God tells us in three ways -- evening, morning, number -- that the word day means... an ordinary 24 hour day.
God is making it very clear: He created everything in six ordinary days.

MAybe Cheney could help out by giving America back the 26 BIllion Haliburton stole from the American taxpayers while they did NOTHING in Afganistan and Iraq for 8 years.
How pissed would you be if a Biden owned company made billions off of the Deaths of American soldiers? would you let that slide?
No, you would not let it slide. Maybe you're just scared Cheney will shoot you in the face if you speak up.

After Obama's performance, can you understand why he don't meet with world leaders.........they can't stop laughing. Why can't the president talk naturally without a teleprompter. Being a communicator is in his job discription and says he should know and be able to discuss matters pertaining to his performance and his duties. He should also be able to articulate his plans and solutions.........Romney did, and looked Presidential, Obama didn't. Have you seen the SNL skit....pretty well sums it up.

"It does make some sense though" to use a teleprompter, Romney tells Hannity. "I do understand."

He adds: "It keeps you from saying something you don't mean, you get the message out precisely the way you want to get the message out." Romney says he has used a TelePrompter "maybe five times" in the campaign. Romney in recent months has tended to use a teleprompter for most major speeches.

TAMPA, Fla.-- Mitt Romney stood on stage at the Tampa Bay Times Forum for several minutes Thursday afternoon while his teleprompters were adjusted ahead of his big address to delegates later in the evening.

Every speech on stage at the RNC has been run through prompters, save for Condoleeza Rice's address, which she read from notes. Conservatives -- including Paul Ryan, who also used a teleprompter in his convention speech -- have long mocked President Obama's use of the devices. Romney was one of the few Republicans to defend the practice and he appeared to take pains to make sure his prompters were just right.

Can't wait for Romney to use it with 6th graders like both Obama's did.

Mitt Romney has the support of 49 percent of voters nationwide, compared to 47 percent for President Obama, according to a Rasmussen poll based entirely on interviews conducted after the first presidential debate Wednesday.

Two percent of those surveyed prefer some other candidate and 2 percent are undecided, according to the first daily presidential tracking poll for Sunday.

The results are based on nightly interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The numbers show a modest bounce for Romney following his strong performance in the debate with President Obama.

“It remains to be seen whether (the bounce) is a temporary blip or signals a lasting change in the race,” the polling firm said.
Scott Rasmussen, the firm’s founder and president, notes “incumbent presidents often struggle in the first debate and do better in the second.”

The firm also released a poll Sunday showing Romney closing the gap on the president in 11 swing states.
In those states, Obama earns 49 percent support, compared to Romney’s 47 percent.

Rasmussen said the race is the closest it has been since September 29 and is Romney’s best showing since the middle of last month.
However, the survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, so most of the responses were prior to the debate.

So the post debate numbers will be higher for Romney based on early sampling.

Well, she lied about her ancestral heritage to get ahead in her career and claimed to be the brains behind a terrorist organization (OWS). When called out on those two things she cries Sexism. She fits perfectly in the modern Democrat Party.
