Don't thank God for the military. God is a man of
peace, compasion, love. The military have a free
hand in your tax dollar. Hopefully we can spent
some of our own money in the military base buying
and shopping for our own family needs. Maybe we can use some of their vacation rentals for our own
stress needs. Man are all made from the same dust

Sounds like most Americans doesn't it? Average American carries over $6,000 in credit card debt and spends more than they save. Don't blame the government for our problems - we did it to ourselves.
I'll say I did it to myself.....I don't have that credit card debt, I pay my bills and I have a job.
Had I any inkling of what was going to happen, I would have maxed out a bunch of credit cards, gotten more of them, bought that house I knew I couldn't make payments on and then have the Prez force others to pay my debts for me.
Instead, now I'm just an idiot with a bad attitude.

You must have missed that first part of the Bible named "The Old Testament".
And Jesus didn't seem too pleased when he saw what was going on in the temple.
No need to bring up what the Koran orders it's followers to do to infidels who don't believe in the peaceful, compassionate, loving God.
Unfortunately, if we are indeed made in God's image, there has to be something seriously wrong with Him/Her.

You and a million others. Join the club! Again, don't blame the Prez, he had nothing to do with it but if you are going to blame the prez - start from way back!

"In God We Trust". Tell me what the HELL that means. Humans have caused more deaths and misery in the name of God (doesn't matter which one)than anything else. So, was it God that caused 9-11? Was it God that caused the economic meltdown? So it make you feel that good to hide behind your cloak of religious righteousness and spout your pathetic speel as the world collapses? I guess God is causing that too, eh?
