Wow, finally something of worth, not the usual anti-right stuff.
BTW, we (the taxpayers) end up paying for the child if it's on welfare, too. And, as the Sandra Fluke indicated, we (the taxpayers) should be paying for her birth control, too...
Maybe the gubment should pay for our condoms, haircuts, and shoeshines to make us men more attractive.

<quoted text>I try not to pick on people weaker than me and you shouldn't neither. That is what you and Aggie lack is human compassion for people beneath you. I hate the word stupid and I hate to embarass someone for their stupidity. To poke fun is one thing, but to only insult is wrong.
Excuse me for "jumping in", but:

1. How/why do you say people are beneath Synergy and Aggie? As much as I like both of them (I have met Synergy and conversed many time with her, and consider her a friend, haven't met Aggie), no one is beneath them (or anyone else), particularly on a largely anonymous board, IMHO.

Perhaps (OK, it's quite obvious) some people aren't as knowledgeable about certain things and/or have some clueless and uneducated ideas and comments, but that doesn't put them beneath them, does it?

2. What do you mean "I try not to pick on people weaker than me"? Do you mean physically or mentally? How would you know?

3. If you knew Synergy, you'd know your comment about human compassion is your worst post of the day/week/month, probably year, too...

Perhaps you had a bad choice of words?

BTW, I appreciated your posts about your kids, I feel the same way about mine. The comment by someone about snipping spinal cords and partial birth abortions sent a shiver down my spine.

Another BTW, there's a big difference between ignorance and stupidity. Ignorance means you aren't aware (clueless) or educated (uneducated) about something (example: a youngster driving a manual transmission for the first time, they're not very good at it, but can learn how to do it well).

Hence, my comments about "clueless and uneducated", particularly as it relates to taxes. Too many people (some very intelligent) don't know $hit about taxes and how the tax system works. The Government WANTS it that way.

Stupidity, well that's easy to define.

Synergy already responded more than adequately, but you are being a complete hypocrite here. Please define compassion - is it donating to charities that help the needy? Is it volunteering? You have NO CLUE about what Syn or I may or may not do and yet you feel you have the knowledge to judge us as having no compassion because we think it is wrong for the govt to keep taking more and more from the people who make this country work and who already pay over 70% of the taxes in this country in order to fund programs that do not help people better their lives. Instead these programs give just enough to get by (while discouraging marriage) and keep people enslaved to the govt. That isn't compassion - it is control. Study after study shows that Repubs donate far more than Dems to charity. Dems idea of charity is raising taxes on other people, and they speak so condescendingly about how they themselves "SHOULD pay more taxes". And yet these are the same people who take every deduction they can in order to NOT pay more in taxes. No one is forcing them to take those deductions.
And if you want a lesson in insults, just read virtually any post from IO or CN, they have one message that they repeat ad nauseum. Repubs are stupid. Repubs are greedy, Repubs don't care about starving children, Repubs don't care about soldiers dying, every decision Bush made was to get oil. And on and on. And they ignore every fact they are presented with that illustrates the weakness of their position. So before you go talking about the splinter in the eye of the Right, how about doing something about the plank in the eye of the Left.

There isn't anything the government could pay for that would help me. Plus I've been happily married for almost 30 years and my wife (believe it or not) loves me just the way I am.

At least she says so...:)

"the school environment is a key setting for student behavior and ideas are shaped."
Yep, with this statement you have explained the reason for home schooling, school choice, and a host of reasons why parents are turning to the right to get gubment out of the family.

Thanks, your innocuous post explains a lots of the differences between the libtards and the conservatives.
Billions poured into education and the student populace continues the slow decline in relation to other countries.
Libtard ideas ruin the country, and libtards running the country's schools only increase their benefit packages.
Continue to post your gibberish, we like seeing you make a fool of yourself.

Do you really think I need a lesson in insults? I meant CN is beneath you and Synergy in intelligence. Not as a person. When all you have to reply to him is one word insults it shows a total lack of compassion to his point of view. I have very little compassion for anyone. Mainly just children.

I'm going to jump in here. I have given the one or two word replies, so I'll answer. Obviously, you've not read CN's posts. For you to even suggest that a conservative show HIM compassion is reprehensible. I have absolutely NO COMPASSION for his point of view. Are you for real??????

-Thomas Jefferson
The whole point of the First Amendment was that no one religion would be considered the STATE religion - as the Church of England was the state religion of England and enjoyed privileges above other religions. The letter from Jefferson from which the "wall of separation" quotation is lifted is to a group of Baptist ministers who feared a state religion would be established in the United States. His point was to assure them that people would be free to worship as they please. No where is there intent that the First Amendment requires that the public arena be "free from religion" - which is the tack so many of the Left try to take. In "Notes on the State of Virginia" he asks "Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?" As president he signed bills appropriating funds for chaplains in the military and in Congress. Freedom OF religion - absolutely. Freedom FROM religion - a complete twisting of intent.

We are one nation under god.
That would be from the 1954 revision of the Pledge of Alligence, just a tad later than the US Constitution which is the founding document of this country.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegi...
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist,[3] and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898).

(American Exceptionalism)
Prior to February 1954, no endeavor to get the Pledge officially amended succeeded. The final successful push came from George MacPherson Docherty. Some American presidents honored Lincoln's birthday by attending services at the church Lincoln attended, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church by sitting in Lincoln's pew on the Sunday nearest February 12. On February 7, 1954, with President Eisenhower sitting in Lincoln's pew, the church's pastor, George MacPherson Docherty, delivered a sermon based on the Gettysburg Address titled "A New Birth of Freedom." He argued that the nation's might lay not in arms but its spirit and higher purpose. He noted that the Pledge's sentiments could be those of any nation, that "there was something missing in the pledge, and that which was missing was the characteristic and definitive factor in the American way of life." He cited Lincoln's words "under God" as defining words that set the United States apart from other nations.

President Eisenhower had been baptized a Presbyterian very recently, just a year before. He responded enthusiastically to Docherty in a conversation following the service. Eisenhower acted on his suggestion the next day and on February 8, 1954, Rep. Charles Oakman (R-Mich.), introduced a bill to that effect. Congress passed the necessary legislation and Eisenhower signed the bill into law on Flag Day, June 14, 1954.[17] Eisenhower stated "From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty.... In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource, in peace or in war."[18]

The phrase "under God" was incorporated into the Pledge of Allegiance June 14, 1954, by a Joint Resolution of Congress amending §4 of the Flag Code enacted in 1942.

...One objection[22] states that a democratic republic built on freedom of dissent should not require its citizens to pledge allegiance to it, and that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects one's right to refrain from speaking or standing (also a form of speech).[21] Another objection lies in the fact that the people who are most likely to recite the Pledge every day, small children in schools, cannot really give their consent or even completely understand the Pledge they are taking.
