Stop right there, Bag Lady. I made a comment about the wheelchair racist who shot a 65 year old woman dead at a gas station. I said that he should consider committing suicide because God helps those who help themselves. It was a cynical and jocular play on words. Nothing religious. Nothing Christian. You then came back with something about Christianity and some other related anti-religious fluff. I asked you why you were laying into Christianity and how in the hell that related to a racist murderer.

Now, you're back here giving me a lesson in Christian history and how Christianity is promoted by American politicians.

Do you always get lost on the way back home from the Germane Supermarket?

Didn't they suggest using Retraining Camps?

They didn't like drug users, either, and, if they couldn't wean some people off from the "Opiate of the people", they simply killed 'em, right?

That's why the Boy Messiah has so much trouble with the US Constitution. Murder is illegal and Retraining Camps could be seen as Government Religion. Thank God for the Bill of Rights. Yes. God.

In lieu of all the Constitutional issues clouding up the Jerk-In-Chief's wet dreams of power, the Liberal Mainstream Media is stepping in to fulfill the duties you would find performed in those Retraining Camps. Indoctrination.

But the Boy Messiah still wants to shove abortion down the throats of religiously owned hospitals. Let's wait and see if our illustrious and godless SCOTUS is up to the task of helping the Jerk-In-Chief or hindering him.

The Boy Messiah plans to dress up as Elmo at his inaugural party and have Kevin Clash entertain.

You know....the guy who always had his arm up Elmo's butt on PBS?

But then again that's the only way any President from now on will be elected.
He wasn't perfect. No one ever said he was. Certainly, not me.

But he was a leader.

That's what we need now. Not perfection.

Brother Obama is pushing an effort to fund the Muslim Brotherhood's efforts to make Egypt, and hopefully, the entire Middle East run by theocracies. The Jerk-In-Chief is loaded with Allah...and BS.

I don't want my tax money being used to promote Islam and the deaths of infidels, dammit. The Boy Messiah's legacy will be the downfall of the West and all of its best qualities. We are entering a Dark Age, folks.

But...what the hey...weez gots free cellphones!

Talk down to him. It is the most natural position he understands.
Don't forget, I'm a former elementary teacher. Patience with nonsense and putting it in its place is just part of my makeup.

Dealing with nucular is like being back in a fifth grade classroom.

"silly" says you are sounding more and more like Sarah Palin. I would guess you take that as a compliment.
Peace
Palin isn't as dumb as liberals want to believe she is.

But I have to say I was glad that she faded out of the limelight a bit before the election as she is such a polarizing figure.

When she makes a television appearance now, I find she's much more engaging.

Romney lost.
No cheating. Your candidate sucked.
YourParty is full of wierdos that think God intends for rape to happen, and that a woman's body rejects rape sperm.
Your Party in PA was clearly trying to suppress the AA vote, and it backfired.
Guess there's some things we'll both never know.

But if you think it's weird to believe so strongly in the sanctity and miracle of life even in the case of rape - no matter how horrible that scenario - and don't think creating a life irresponsibly and then killing it isn't - you win the prize for the biggest weirdo.

Santa came early to my house today - we finally bought our first flatscreen TV for a family Christmas present and it arrived this morning. I've been a little excited and distracted this evening. It's pretty awesome.

Frustrated much?

If one is reduced to grasping at the sort of straws you've relied on for rescue here, perhaps one should retire gracefully from the debate.

If you don't like the answers, Vincent, perhaps you should stop asking the questions. As I said previously,'venting' doesn't describe my answer to you at all accurately.

Try again, or are you ready to concede that my answers to your questions drove you to fits of unintelligibility?

RealDave,
what's wrong with letting AMERICANS keep more of what they earn...
that way they don't need the kind, compassionate, and HIGHLY ETHICAL government to take it from someone...
what on earth is wrong with you...
You do know about the US tax rate being the lowest it has ever been for the past 10 plus years? You do know that most of the super rich pay a rate of only 15% just like Mitt? You do know that of the 400 richest in America according to Forbes 6 of them paid NO taxes. You do know without taxes we would not have 70% of the electric service or highways or airports in America? You do know that all the military is paid by tax money?
