The 2% that are homosexual want you out of their life.
I understand you want the ability to discriminate against guys & Muslims.

No way I would want to be in your life.
What I would really like would be the government to get out of my life.

"Galt" is "Galt" and he has the right to his opinions and thoughts, just as you do. Abortion/murder is going to continue, so is gay marriage. I am anti both. Little we can do about it, the Supreme Court has ensured that. Our voices would be much better heard if we spend our efforts at speaking out about nobamakare, something that is not yet set in stone, something nearly 60% of American's do not support. nobamakare is a lie, the president nobama lies when he supports it, nobama has one goal in mind, single payer, government controlled health care. A program designed to take from the doers and producers and give to those with their hands out.
Carter was a terrible president, Bush 2 not much better, Bush 1 and clinton were not so bad, but all of them were sterling when compared to nobama, a born liar.
Peace
Bush 2 was much better than Carter. Carter had character but was not a good leader. Bush 1 was much better than Clinton. Clinton may have been a better leader but had no character. Obama is in a class all by himself.

Focusing on Obamacare is what I've been doing. It very well could be the silver lining of 2012.

You are right all Christians are not "evangelical" but "evangelical" Christians, for the most part, are tax and spend liberals, spending for handouts. They are touchie feelie folks. It is their right. We do not need generations of those with their hands out, we need folks who get out, work, produce and take care of their own.

Sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about.

Actually Eed, my post said that Glenn Beck was thrown off of Fox because of his racist comments. Done by those who believe racism is never acceptable.
Just like your slurs are not acceptable.
"real dumb"
What slurs are you speaking of?
My saying our boy president is not up to his job as president of the United States?
My saying the president is a liar, or did you not hear him say if you like your health insurance you can keep it. Period.? Tell that to the 5 million American's who have already had their health insurance cancelled.
My saying you are a racist turd?

Carter was a success story compared to your chimp. I mean, COME ON... national debt under Carter =.9 trillion. Under Bush = 11.4 trillion. You do know how to read big numbers, don't you? Maybe not.
If I were to ask exactly what Carter did to make things so bad, there's no question in my mind you couldn't answer in detail off the top of your head.
You'd have to run to some rightwing hate site and cut n paste like crazy. Then pray I don't see through the bull.

Why was Carter a terrible president?

Tell us exactly what he did to be considered "terrible".

In other words, provide us details. Facts. What decisions did Carter take which make him a bad president?

I check on Covered California to verify your "quote" and (surprise) couldn't.
For a couple, both 55 years old earning $100,000 a year, the highest coverage (in which EACH person has 3+ prescriptions a year plus 20+ Doctor visits a year and multiple ongoing lab tests and hospital stays), the premium is $1107.00 a month for a zero deductible family plan. I suggest you take another look.

Pretty much the same nonsense as your analogy.

"John Galt"
Now you are being dishonest. I am Roman Catholic and do not apologize for that fact. But I challenge you to bring up a post where I support abortion/murder or gay marriage. Just one. I have better things to do. You are wrong again when you say I do not recognize the Socialist nature of my church. I would far rather give monies to my church rather than the Federal government, I see the results of our giving to folks in need. I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on failed social, fill their hands programs. Those programs do just one thing, build on the sit on your fannie mantra that far to many American's depend on.

"Catholic Charities USA receives more than half of its funding each year ($554 million in 2010) from federal grants. In 2012, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops received $63 millionÂ…in federal grants."

I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on tax-exempt groups like Catholic Charities to subsidize their "charitable" work. It much better to spend those millions to support social welfare programs than help the Catholic church build up its coffers.

How about $125 billion of our tax dollars per year in free stipends to big corporations under GW Bush? How about the huge war profits that accrued to Haliburtion over the bodies of 4,000 U.S. servivemen? For a war that your party lied us into.

You GOP boneheads are totally clueless to your rank hypocrisy.

As for your cliche imagery, it's typical GOP stereotyping designed to whip up hate between whites and minorities.

"Tax and Spend" Liberals?

Let's talk about "Borrow and Spend" Republicans.

Now when the government borrows money, it has to pay it back, correct?

And with what does government pay back the debt?

Did you elephants guess TAX DOLLARS? That would be correct.

So the truth comes out. Borrowing is simply a sneaky way of taxing, in which the taxing is deferred further down the road.

So... let's look at the figures.

Out of a 10.5 trillion increase from Reagan to the end of Bush II, Republican presidents acount for 8.9 trillion of it.

Can you spell T-A-X A-N-D S-P-E-N-D Republicans?

I knew that you could.

Hi!

I'm a tax-and-spend Republican out to cut government waste.

And I'm so against big government, I'll create a giant super agency called the department of homeland security.

After I gag by dismissing all the warning signs that 9-11 was coming.

But only 3,000 died, which is less than the BS war in Iraq I lied us into.

Inflation, high interest rates, lousy foreign policy, micromanager, didn't like playing by the rules, rising energy prices, stagflation, created the Department of Education and Department of Energy.

The Department of Education was a payoff by Carter to teacher unions for their support. It was once part of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare where it should have stayed.

The Department of Energy has become a huge federal bureaucracy over the last 33 years and statistics prove it a colossal failure.

And then there was the "malaise speech". It was a rather depressing time. Carter didn't help to cheer us up.
