Wow - what a persuasive post !
- It's full of rational counter-arguments where the authorship of the Bible verses quoted as the Word of God,(according to the Bible and its believers), is scrutinized or even disproved; or
- It carefully addresses each and every statement made by Jesus quoted; or
- It provides the dozens of passages from the Bible where Jesus specifically condemns gays,(none exist).
Oh wait .... Never mind
It was just another Right Winger allowing pre-programmed words to fall from his mouth without any facts or analysis involved.
On Right Wing Planet, that post isn't useless gibberish - that's what passes for deep thought.
More of your pomposity. Why write a long BORING diatribe when she can sum up her point in a few sentences. I am pretty sure that more people are reading her posts as opposed to your long drawn out repetitive drivel. Why don't you take all that crap, sum it up and post it? I, along with others(I think) would read it. At this point, I read the first couple of sentencs and the last couple of sentences. It's just the same old name calling and Obamabot thinking, so I don't need to read it. Sum it up. You should have learned to do that in English 101?

This in the news today is the understatement of the last 10 years!!
The controversies of the Bush administration – including the conflict in Iraq, the waging of the “global war on terror,” the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the fallout from the 2008 financial crisis – saddled the former Texas governor with staggering unpopularity by the end of his presidency, which helped give way to President Barack Obama’s ascendancy and an ongoing identity crisis within the GOP.
Keep your eyes wide SHUT. You and others like you are the reason the GOP is going Hispanic and African American leaving white conservative elitists in the past. It will take a few more years to complete the transformation, but the more you and others like you talk and age the faster the changes will occur.
I'm curious. What is the source of this? You DO realize that if I were to go to a right wing source, I could find news about what a sorry, worthless president Obama is, right?
Now, you gave me some advice and I am going to give you some. If you Obama supporters don't OPEN YOUR EYES, you are going to wake up in a country where you have NO CHOICES. You will be told how your lives are going to be. If that's what you require to survive, then poor you. You are so impressionable that you have allowed this administration to permeate every cell of your body with hate and devisiveness. How can you not realize that? White elitists? I have been taught to think for myself and make my own decisions, provide for my needs and not dispise and want to punish those who have more than I. You can't say the same. I suppose you look forward to the day when all your decisions will be made for you. Sad.

Dumb Keynes = dumb libtard.
"President Barack Obama demands more stimulus spending to avoid the "fiscal cliff." Obama increased the national debt $6 trillion to $16 trillion. Yet the Democrats''cure for what ails ya' is even more spending. Obama demands around $75 billion in new spending to stimulate the economy in 2013.
"Keynesian Economics" is the insane belief that the economy can be stimulated by government spending. It provides the excuse to depart from common sense that allows politicians to ignore the alarm bells. It is ludicrous mainly because our government doesn't have any money to spend.
If the government had a surplus saved up, spending actual money might give our economy a short-term sugar high (with dubious long-term results). But our Federal and state governments must first suck money out of the economy by borrowing it.
History has repeatedly proven that this is nonsense. Yet Democrats will not let go of the Keynesian Myth. The government is the center of society, America's modern Democrats want to believe. So they cannot shake the dogma that our entire economy depends upon government spending.
The New Deal was the largest real-world test of the Keynesian Myth in recent history. Franklin Roosevelt's Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau confessed that the "New Deal" was a failure in sworn testimony before Congress on May 9, 1939.
"We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work."
And FDR's Treasury Secretary also told Congress:
"I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started.... And an enormous debt to boot!"
The last statement exactly applies to Obama and his dumb libtard supporters.
All I know is that American the leader of the free world, the most feared army on the planet and the largest economic machine in the world occurred after FDR and ended with George Bush. Before Bush we were a proud county, we were united for the common good. We didn’t talk all the time about Dems or Repuges, conservatives or libs. We were AMERICANS and damn proud of It.! During the days of extreme growth or parents and grandparents watched network news with reliable news anchors just reporting what was going on in the world. Today we are spoon fed opinions geared to mold us into whatever animal the person with the most money wants. We ALL used to be just AMERICANS and were damn proud of it! And we had a reason to be proud, not so today. Our world ranking from health care, infant death rates to the economy including the decline of the middle class has fallen. We are no longer the “greatest country in the world”, and it’s OUR fault. We can be AGAIN if these moronic conservative vs libs stops and we ALL get back to working together. Argue that fact.

Bush: Bigger surplus makes tax cuts OK
05/03/00- Updated 12:38 PM ET
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/e98/e1686...
WASHINGTON (AP)- The economy's relentless growth means federal surpluses will be far larger than estimated, leaving plenty of room for George W. Bush's proposed tax cut, aides to the presidential contender said Tuesday.
Bush's new estimates came amid cries from supporters of his Democratic rival, Vice President Al Gore, that the Republican's plan would be so big that it would force deep spending cuts and a return to budget deficits. Bush's plan ''still doesn't add up,'' a Gore adviser asserted.
Oh, I dunno. I thought THIS was rather interesting.

It's not like banks were forced to make loans to people that couldn't keep up the payments from pressure starting in the Carter administration and steamrolling under the Clinton Justice Dept. It isn't like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bought up many of those loans, bundled them and then sold them to investors. And it isn't as though since FM and FM were government secured, they could get lower interest rates and have lower capital requirements. And it isn't as though the Bush administration questioned the amount of the secondary mortgage market that FM and FM held and suggested stronger regulation, warning of "systematic risk for our financial system". And it isn't as though Barney Frank kept insisting FM and FM were "not facing any kind of financial crisis" and complained that the Bush administration was more concerned about financial safety than housing.
Oh, wait......
Wow, that's really a compelling case, except that CRA isn't what you think it is, and there's that little problem of Fannie and Freddie dealing with conforming loans. But hey, your story sounds really good.

Freddie Mac: What it did, what went wrong
By Chris Isidore
January 24, 2012: 3:41 PM ET
http://money.cnn.com/2012/01/24/news/economy/...

...But what the firm did, and the role it and larger rival Fannie Mae played in the housing crisis of the last decade, remain a source of confusion for many Americans.

What do Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae do?
The two of them support the housing industry by providing billions in financing to the mortgage market.

They buy mortgage loans from lenders that conformed to their guidelines, typically safer loans with a large down payment, good credit scores for the borrowers and verification of their income.

Did the two firms create the housing bubble that caused the financial meltdown?
Not really.

The two firms were major players in the mortgage market, and so the rising home values were at least partly funded by their flow of money.

But the bubble really inflated when Wall Street started buying riskier loans made to borrowers who didn't qualify for a Fannie or Freddie conforming loan. Those loans carried higher interest rates, with relatively little risk for investors while home prices were going up.

Experts say it was the growth of those riskier loans that caused home prices to rise and the bubble to inflate.

"When you bring in 5 million marginal buyers who under normal circumstances would not qualify for a mortgage, that's what ends up driving home prices," said Barry Ritholtz, CEO of Fusion IQ.

"If Freddie and Fannie never existed, we would have had the same problem," he said.
What caused problems for Fannie and Freddie? By the middle of the last decade, Freddie and Fannie had lost their dominant position in the home loan market, as the riskier loans became a larger share of the mortgage market.

So they adjusted their underwriting standards in order to participate in the riskier lending as well.

Even though the riskier loans were a minority of the loans each purchased, because each was so huge, they ended up with a large volume of those loans.

They also were relatively late to the game. That meant they got into riskier loans right before the decline in home prices -- which began in 2006 -- led to a spike in foreclosures. After that, home buyers started to default on loans that were safer, adding to Freddie and Fannie's losses.

"What killed Fannie and Freddie is the housing market went to hell and they were 100% exposed to housing," said Jaret Seiberg, analyst with Guggenheim Washington Research Group....

As usual your Radical Christian Taliban training prevents your ability to discriminate and differentiate.
I simply said I don't judge gays for being gay.
Just like it wasn't important to your Jesus - it's not important to me.
Other people's sex life is a Right Wing Wacko obsession, we normal folks just don't care.
And if I were to judge them for being gay, your Jesus says that would be wrong.
Now as for pointing out the Anti-Christian Right Wing Wacko Agenda - in defense of those Jesus said we are obligated to protect and serve, now that's a Biblical requirement, although my motivation isn't based on such.
Can you imagine your Jesus, who came to the aid of the poor, the sick, the down-trodden, the prostitutes, and even the tax man;
standing by while those he defended were destroyed by the rich and powerful ?
Perhaps you can contemplate on that a while and come to understand the difference between judging people for who they are, as opposed to judging and opposing their harmful actions.
Tell us also your thoughts about Libtard Jesus killing babies.

No, the post you were responding to dealt with collections during the boom years to pay down the debt acquired in the lean years. See during the boom years a certain party comes along and says we don't need this surplus, let's reduce your taxes, in fact, it sounds a lot like buying votes by giving folks free stuff.

Where to begin.
You are living in a liberal dreamworld if you think the liberal/conservative argument began just recently. It's been going on since this country was founded.

As far as living under a mushroom for a long time, you are correct. But the internet has changed that. People no longer live and believe the drivel put out by the news organizations, the gubment, or politicians. Most people think for themselves and base their opinions on their own concepts of right and wrong, interpretation of facts, and personal bias. You are no different.

All this crap about "let's just all get along" is the same tired old crap of liberals, which equals too "my way, not your way."

And your statement;
"We ALL used to be just AMERICANS and were damn proud of it! And we had a reason to be proud, not so today."

What did you have to be proud of? was it abortion? homosexuality? rich taking from the poor?, workers supporting lazy people? military strength? fancy cars and big homes?

Just what do you mean when you say proud of?
