I consider that matter of name calling true, you agree, yes? I would like to discuss your thoughts on Socialism and the teachings of Jesus that you had previously brought up.

Waco, If indeed the IRS is doing as you stated, it should be stopped and a complete overhual done within the bureau. Now, do you agree that the IRS needs to be abolished as suggested by Ted Cruz? If this were done, how would taxes be collected in this country?

Rock,Let me preface this conversation by saying that Jesus had a very social ministry. I am in no way referring to Socialism as a form of government. Just want to make that clear.
Do you feel that Jesus:
Fed the hungry?
Defended the oppressed?
Stood up for women's rights?
Loved the outcast, the despised and rejected by society and all sinners?
Called on the rich and powerful to give their money to the poor?
Mingled with the Samaritans, a group despised by practicing Jews?
Viewed all people as being worthy of forgiveness?
Encouraged people to personally take care of all those in need?
I understand where you're coming from; and I'd answer "yes" to all those points as well State.

Of course He was...and we certainly are not...Your last question, could you explain that more clearly please. Now, after reading what Jesus called the religious leaders, scribes and lawyers, do you agree that He called them names? In fact, He called them far worse than just calling them " low lifes"; would you agree to that as well?

These princples are some of the reasons I am a Democrat, although I know that the Democrat party makes mistakes as it is made up of human beings. I am not preaching, but to me, Democrats do work more in the area of social justice than Republicans, but that is just my perspective and belief for what it is worth.

Yes, he did rebuke them, and If you want to describe it as calling them names, he certainly did. I think the difference is he was a perfect entity without sin, so the calling them these names did have an intended point where our calling others harmful names (that I am extremely guilty of ) is just designed to hurt or degrade and done in anger. Jesus did this to get their attention, and then always followed it up with the truth about God, that by their stong hold on to Jewish tradition, the scribes and pharisees otherwise would not listen to. Jesus had two primary missions: to teach truth and to die on the cross. He completed both missions with perfection.

Yeah, looks like old Obama is going to rip off the taxpayers of Illinois for his stinking presidential library.
Figures the lowlife has to use taxpayer money, while the Bush's used donated money.

If the IRS were abolished, who would pay Ted Cruise' salary? He is too stupid to be a senator.

Yes, you are right. Rick has run into a lot of brick walls in his time, some by his own design.

You do your research and you choose a retreat property far off the beaten path. You spend time and money developing it, making it your own. Maybe it is a vacation home, or maybe a retirement location. Regardless of the reason you chose it, it’s yours, so maybe you plant some vegetables and some fruit trees. You dig a well. You make it your own. Then the government comes along and says,“Nope, we want this land, you’re out. And they just take it, evicting you like they, are the landlord and you are merely a tenant, despite your name on the deed.
They will use tyranny laws such as: County condemned property, commercial activities, zoning laws, threatened an endangered species or any number of garbage laws for the sole purpose of stealing land.
The moral to this story do not fool yourself in thinking you are Free. You are government property, your kids are government property, and all you work for belongs to the government. It is known as slavery.
