That being said...
Point to one darn thing Obama did in office that Helped AMerica!
He's not even been working on the things he said he would work on!
Playing Golf was NOT in the Job description, or his Promises!
Who'd say "If elected,I Promise to play a lot of golf!"
The end is near... Hold on to yer hat, it's gonna get rough!
well, we expect you to be crazy. you want it to get rough, don't you? you are a sadist, i think.

<quoted text>You just proved yerself to be a tard.... Again!
Judge not lest ye be judged, AND with what measure YOU USE, you'll be judged the same (Paraphrasing)
It means... IF I judge you to be ignorant on purpose about certain things, and I WAS Wrong, or was Ignorant ON Purpose about the same thing... That would be a Wrong judgement... I should not make that kind of Judgement!
If I judged you to be a thief, and I was a thief too... that would be even worse, as I would also have gone against the Ten!
As far as I know... You are Ignorant on purpose.... Why do I say this?
Because, you (suposedly) once believed, and you let yourself be decieved by people like Dawkins, and When such has been called into question... instead of looking for the Truth IN other places (DI, or wherever), you plant yer head firmly up Dawkins butt, and scream $Y$#@^&@... Lalalala!
Many on here have told you God is real, not wanting to KNOW for yerself.... Totally WRONG!
you are disgusting and obsene. I would be interested in seeing someone play imposter to you. could anyone else be so awful and be believable as being you? I think imposters would fail and would make you look better than you are. that said, I would object to anyone who did it, if it were seriously an attempt to deceive, rather than just kidding. ABC could hardly do mockery any worse than what you do seriously.

I find one reason alone to accept Romneys if they win - if the horse comes with them to the White House lawn. R&R's election and policies would be too big a price to pay.

I agree. So much garbage on cable TV. Better to go on computer and put on youtube Andrea Boccelli long list of songs, which reminds me to do it while I type on other matters.

Now Mike your just projecting.... I was Born in the mountains of Kentucky... I Now Live in the Mountains of Kentucky.. But between then and now I have lived in 12 states, been to all 50 and 8 other countries...
During my youth I was a long haired hippy radical commie pinko freak... I led the Detroit Coalition to End the War Now to the May Day marches in DC in 1970 and 1971,,, I worked at the Free Clinic on Plum Street in Detroit in 69... I tried to join the Verceramos Brigade to go to Cuba and cut sugarcane to support the socialist revolution in 69 but was a bit young to get through Canada then out of the country... But in 71 I was standing at the White House Fence and saw a group of disable vets tossing medals over the Fence and had an epiphany ... I realized I had no idea what I was talking about, marching about and I set out to find out.. The Day I returned to Detroit I enlisted in the Army with a contract to go to Vietnam....
So before you Generalize those who oppose your specific points of view I would Suggest you simple Ask what informs those opposing opinions....
thank you for explaining that your own socalled "leftist" nonrational extremist views prompted your own ultra rightwing nonrational extremist views. i do not consider your previous views to be a proper form of leftist thought or activity. you seem to prefer extremism in whatever form, to a rational middle ground.

You have a good point. Reading what YAA and other christians are saying about the end times. If what you are saying is true then others taking part in govenment as this end-time could be doomed by God and risking the mark of the beast also imminent destruction with the earthly governments by God if taking part in the darkness rather than abstaining and proclaiming the kingdom of God is at hand.
better yet, the fundies can help God along by supporting warmongers who will get a wWIII started, and poison the atmosphere with nuclear weapons and chemicals. God's plan needs a bit of specific filling in, and a hurry up, and the rightwing extremist GOP has those willing to supply the details. Palin and bachmann in particular, and the neocons and the supposed friends of Israel who just want to use it as a battleground in fulfillment of what they think is the plan in the book of revelation. they are insane.

<quoted text>Obama saved America from a depression. The economy was in a steep downward spiral. Now it is relatively stable. I see you are so partisan you cannot give Obama credit for saving our economy Bush put us into.
And is the president not allowed to play? Must he work 24/7? He is a human. Humans need play for optimal health. Do you wish for our leader to be dysfunctional?
You are just full of Fox news talking points with no substance. Blind sheep.
please do not insult sheep with such a comparison. otherwise, good comments. however, I wonder if there are any openminded centrists on here?
I would also like to know whether there are any more sensible believers who at least support Obama and a peace and social and economic justice political philosophy - and also whether there are any more atheists who are nasty and cruel and false accusers, and or horrid on political matters. If you ever visit the atheist forum, you will find one idiot named Skeptic who is one of the obscene ones and false accusers whom I very strongly oppose, despite his claim that he is an atheist and rational.

Why does it bother you that someone is an atheist, is there a fear in you that maybe there is a god, lukewarm will be spit out also. Your hard atheist and soft atheist is bull excrement, you are either an atheist, religie or a fence sitter(you). Skeptic is an atheist and does not put up with your nonsense, I have noticed a lot of people on the atheist forum do not care for your nonsense, deal with it.

Sadly, your summarization of the fundies as being the armaggedon welcoming committe is accurate. Fundies and extremist have been promise by clery and warmonger politicians for decades that we need a first strke on the countries that hate us and the bible demands the war starts soon so that bible prophecies can be fulfilled. Extremism in defence of GOP/GOD is no vice, the war chant.

WHAT SCRIPTURES HAVE ALWAYS HAD A BEARING ON THE ATTITUDE OF TRUE CHRISTIANS TOWARD INVOLVEMENT IN POLITICAL ISSUES AND ACTIVITIES?
John 17:16 "They are no part of the world, just as I [Jesus] am no part of the world."
John 6:15 Therefore Jesus, knowing they were about to come and seize him to make him king, withdrew again into the mountain all alone.
JESUS WOULD NOT TOUCH POLITICS WITH A 10 FOOT POLE!
Later Jesus told the Roman governor “My kingdom is no part of this world. If my kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be delivered up to the Jews. But, as it is, my kingdom is not from this source.”- John 18:36
James 4:4:“Adulteresses, do YOU not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world is constituting himself an enemy of God.”
WHY IS THE MATTER SO SERIOUS? Because as 1 John 5:19 says,“the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.”
AT John 14:30, JESUS REFERRED TO SATAN AS BEING “the ruler or the world.”
SO NO MATTER WHAT WORLDLY FACTION A PERSON MIGHT SUPPORT, UNDER WHOSE CONTROL WOULD HE REALLY COME?
WHAT, THEN, WILL HAPPEN TO MAN-MADE GOVERNMENTS?
The Bible answers that the governments "of the Entire inhabited earth" will be destroyed.(Revelation 16:14; 19:19-21 and Daniel 2:44)
If a true Christian believes that God’s Kingdom is about to remove all man-made political systems, he logically would refrain from supporting those political systems. After all if he tried to prop up doomed, man-made governments, he would, in effect, BE TAKING A STAND AGAINST GOD.

Yes they should teach the Bible in schools but also as a Christian I do believe it would be a good thing to teach at the middle and high school age level but you have to give these children Christians do believe that religion can't be forced upon anyone. Offer the classes if the children want to take the bible classes then let them but dot force them too take them they already make the children study religions so why not give them the choice to study the religion our country was founded on in depth and what it really means to be a Christian and to live that kind of live. Of the children of the world were taught about Jesus and had the choice everyday to accept him as thier savior instead of just on Sunday's and wednesdays(and that's only if thier parents take them to church) well then maybe this world could Change and be a better place. A place where you felt safe like you use to
