Well, you got two things right...Republicans hate gays and Republicans are EVIL.
FACT: "700,000 people (including medicaid enrollment) have applied for insurance plans in both the 36 states that are using a federally run health care exchange and the 14 states running their own exchanges."
FACT: The healthcare.gov website is getting better and is fixable.
FACT: The majority of those being "booted" off their healthcare plan because their plans changed after the law was enacted, will have better coverage.
FACT: Obama did not "lie". Under the terms of the Affordable Care Act, if you like your insurance plan, you can keep it. As they always did, insurance companies retained their right to change or cancel your plan.
Over 80% are going on Medicaid. All you libtards have created is another taxpayer sucking program. Young people are not signing up. A disaster for Obamacare. You cannot force people to buy something they do not want or need. Libtard logic!!!!!

Outside of the phony identify you have tried to sell us,
Do You even have a GED?
Look up how chickens are raised....
Already said I'm ashamed to call myself a human being when other human beings treat animals so heartlessly and cruelly. They'd do the same to fellow human beings.

I hate that fisherman catch fish and don't kill them immediately and put them on ice.

Even animals treat other animals more humanely when killing for food.

What do you propose you and I do to stop this kind of cruelty? Because I'll do whatever you say. Seriously.

You can thank your closet liberal pal, Galt, for that.
He's just about pushed me completely out from under the tent we both used to share and I'm thinking about looking for the one that has Independent on it.
They probably don't turn on their own because of personal and private beliefs.
That thought crossed my mind before, however. If Republicans don't start speaking up soon with the right message and if we lose another election because of petty differences, I'm switching parties. Galt's just helping me make that decision sooner.
You're welcome to join us under the Democratic tent if you just sit quietly and pull the lever beside the picture of the donkey.

Take your argument up with Martin Luther, the Catholic monk who broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and coined the term "Evangelical" which was derived from euangelion, a Greek word meaning "good news", i.e. "Gospel."
Martin Luther also began what is called Protestantism today.
Maybe you have a better understanding than Martin Luther, however, and I'd be delighted to hear it. Please.
The word Evangelicals, as described by the National Association of Evangelicals would not include many US Protestant denominations, including my own. It's not a tricky word babe__like Christian__which is frequently abused by Evangelicals.

Seniors who pocket a little cash doing menial jobs working at golf clubs and restaurants, etc., to supplement their SS checks can pocket that little bit of cash without the government needing to get their grubby little hands on it.
I'm on payroll with my part-time job if that makes you feel better.
But if I was making small change waitressing or shining golf clubs at a golf club, you can bet your sweet patooty I'd be pocketing that little cash without telling the IRS anything about it.

It's because Obama is hellbent on destroying this nation.

Either you weren't listening in 2008 or haven't been paying attention since.

I believe it was Obama's spiritual mentor who damned America. Obama is just following through. It's payback time.

<quoted text> Care to show me where there are Palestinians? I don't seem to see any.
The history of Palestine is the study of the past in the region of Palestine, the geographic region in Western Asia between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, and various adjoining lands. Situated at a strategic location between Egypt, Syria and Arabia, and the birthplace of major Abrahamic religions[1] the region has a long and tumultuous history as a crossroads for religion, culture, commerce, and politics. Palestine has been controlled by numerous different peoples, including the Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Philistines, Tjekker, Ancient Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Muslims, the Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mameluks, Ottomans, the British, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1948-1967, on the "West Bank") and Egyptian Republic(in Gaza), and modern Israelis and Palestinians. Other terms for the same area include Canaan, Zion, the Land of Israel, Southern Syria, Jund Filastin, Outremer, the Holy Land and the Southern Levant.
The region was among the earliest in the world to see human habitation, agricultural communities and civilization. During the Bronze Age, independent Canaanite city-states were established, and were influenced by the surrounding civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, Minoan Crete, and Syria. During 1550–1400 BCE, the Canaanite cities became vassals to the Egyptian New Kingdom who held power until the 1178 BCE Battle of Djahy (Canaan) during the wider Bronze Age collapse. Modern archaeologists dispute parts of the Biblical tradition, the latest thinking being that the Israelites emerged from a dramatic social transformation that took place in the people of the central hill country of Canaan around 1200 BCE, with no signs of violent invasion or even of peaceful infiltration of a clearly defined ethnic group from elsewhere.[2] The Philistines arrived and mingled with the local population, and according to Biblical tradition, the United Kingdom of Israel was established in 1020 BCE and split within a century to form the northern Kingdom of Israel, and the southern Kingdom of Judah. The region became part of the Neo-Assyrian Empire from c. 740 BCE, which was itself replaced by the Neo-Babylonian Empire in c. 627 BCE. A war with Egypt culminated in 586 BCE when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II and the local leaders were deported to Babylonia, only to be allowed to return under the Achaemenid Empire.
"The first known occurrence of the Greek word Palaistine is in the Histories of Herodotus, written near the mid-fifth century B.C. Palaistine Syria, or simply Palaistine, is applied to what may be identified as the southern part of Syria, comprising the region between Phoenicia and Egypt. Although some of Herodotus' references to Palestine are compatible with a narrow definition of the coastal strip of the Land of Israel, it is clear that Herodotus does call the "whole land by the name of the coastal strip." Jacobson, David M.(February 1999). "Palestine and Israel".

It proves how out of touch you are that even conservatives here are disgusted with you.

First it was the liberals who called you a fool for inserting your religious beliefs into politics. This is clearly anti Constitution and in defiance of the 'freedom of religion' and 'freedom from religion' that our Constitution enshrines.

Now even your fellow conservatives have seen what a danger you religious nutjobs are to our nation and are taking you to task for it.

So far, Nobraina is making you look just as stupid as liberals have for years on this thread.

It's fun to watch your Lois Lameass reaction.

You reamain a clueless airhead.

No thanks. That's what you liberals do...sit quietly and pull the lever beside the donkey...and do what you're told.

I'm much too independent to be so obedient out of blind loyalty.

Of course, these same liberals become quite vocal about things that don't exist come election time.

Great point about the self esteem problem. Lois, Galt and the other right wing losers here on Topix are all intolerant fanatics. When you lose, the first thing fanatics do is look at everywhere but at themselves to explain why they lost. These morons actually believe that they can keep doing the same thing over and over and get a different result. Losing is never their fault. Fanatics won't budge, they just whine, bicker and keep losing.
Yuup! If everyone else changes their thinking, then everything will be fine.

Non cons, defend yourself! You never know what the brown shirts will do for the next couple of days!!!

"Kristallnacht,( German:“Crystal Night”), also called Night of Broken Glass or November Pogroms, the night of November 9–10, 1938, when German Nazis attacked Jewish persons and property. The name Kristallnacht refers ironically to the litter of broken glass left in the streets after these pogroms. The violence continued during the day of November 10, and in some places acts of violence continued for several more days...."
