<quoted text>So in Farsi,'Allah' is pronounced 'God'?
she's not talking about pronunciation, she's talking about word meaning you dunce. Allah means God.

Allah is the NAME of their deity; God is the NAME of the christian deity. By your theory, then, you won't mind that the pledge is changed to "under allah", right?
<quoted text>
if they wanted to say the pledge in their native tongue the translation of the word god would be allah. no objection here.
you so want others to admit that they are as hatefully intolerant as you.

Your inability to understand English is not surprising, even though you attempted to claim that 'God' is 'Allah' in English, and garbled the hell out of it.
So, by this reasoning, it would be fine with you if we began to require schoolchildren to recite a pledge with the phrase "One nation under Allah," since it's just two different names for the same 'god'.
But no, you want to claim that 'Allah' isn't an English word.
So, how about we change the Pledge of Allegiance to read "One nation under the Flying Spaghetti Monster."
Those are English words...is that the same god you worship?
which religion worships the flying spaghetti monster ? advise them that the word god covers their deity. it's the all purpose word for deities.
bigot.

I understand English just fine. I don't understand you. Cpeter asked me the same question without all the double talk and I said calling God Allah is fine with me but wouldn't make much sense since the pledge is in English recited by English speaking people.
they get it. they just don't like the fact that you're not exhibiting the hateful intolerance they expect and want to see from you. the same kind that comes as easy as breathing to them.

<quoted text>The view that a woman has the same rights as a man, has been law since 1921.
If you agree that women should have the right to vote, and you exercise that right, I guess you can thank the 'pro-death' individuals who campaigned without ceasing until that right was recognized....since that was their view as well.
even if abortion were made illegal women would still possess the same exact rights as a man. no man has the right to choose to electively terminate human life, born or unborn. given this, and the fact that the right to choose is currently a reality, women and men do "not" possess the same rights. how fair is that?

Katie..
Your story is similar to mine..just a thought .But maybe you can't
Pay taxes Quarterly but an accountant can help.
I have never made much money ans less as a,private contractor
Went 5 years with no child support..And very little before that..So really know where you are coming from.
The point is without people with some money t h ere is no one to pay you.
And I did not have any govt aid either
Our billionaire friend has bragged about manipulating the market. Overarching bragging on tv about taking out his huge investments just months before the 2008 elections...He has way too much political power for one person to have.
I just had to Google Clowa rd. And Pive n to get those links.I have known about this way before the current administration..It's notices..it was,nothing to do with the Religious Right..I listened than one ..It's not our imagination ..
The government is top heavy with huge debt
SONETIMES people we don't respect have useful information.
This was a dangerous strategy thought of by eggheads in the sixties...
Unfortunately this is coming to fruition thanks to people who bought into it.
And professors who taught socialism in the schools out of which the politicians come
judging by the way the government is run today..I'd say. The people you are afraid of are less useful than the ones that scare me.
And our kids and grandkids will pay the price.
I am not a fan of Falwell and his ilk by the way..neither are most people..
From what I see big mouths on both sides blur the message ..while socialism. Creeps in ..And the government in the person of the I R S. Still has no business hampering one side of the big mouths over the other.. I use my DVR much more before an election.
Rose, am enjoying our discussion, but fighting headache. Hope you are feeling better after your surgery.

Both sides are just fighting for power. Power corrupts. That's why the framers set up things the way the did. For balance. I am all for balance. It's the accountant in me (even though that part's been squelched since I no longer work as an accountant).

What's been going on since Obama took office is a young Congress focusing on getting him out of office. They were so shocked he was voted in for a 2nd term.

This young Congress wastes too much time on nonessential issues. Big issues to them, to the Religious Right, but not for this economy.

I am currently researching the late 1800s up through the Depression. So far what I see is a repeat of history, although not necessarily in the same order. The Gilded Age had no middle class. One thing created following WWII was the middle class. And our country thrived. Some on the Republican side of the aisle would like to see a return to a ruling class and a serving class. They currently look to Venezuela and like what they see over there. I certainly don't like it. Even their wealthy must stand in a line for a roll of toilet paper.

It's not all Republicans wanting this or working toward this, though. And I sense you are probably thinking along the same lines they do. As do I. Like I mentioned the other day, until my state changed our voting practices, I'd vote either party, depending on whom I thought was best qualified for the job. I don't like having to pick a party or pick a side, though. It's disrespectful, I think.

Anyway, hope you're healing up and enjoying your day, Rose.

Thanks Katie ..hope your headache gets better.

I find if I get too heated on here my blood pressure goes up and I get. Migraine.

Still in pain but may be a n
Bit better since yesterday ..thanks.

What I see is the RR you speak of is mostly impotent..and I wish the Congress would start at least trying to work
together to get us out if this mess that keeps getting worse. And stop the other side from breaking us.

The real thing that ticks me off is the millionaires up there telling us we need to pay more.
Believe it or not mist Republicans are middle classes. And pay a lot to Uncle..they spend on stupid!!!!

But they allnpkay to their base and points fingers.
Take care

depends what time period you're referring to.
"....In fact, before 1774 it was not a crime in North Carolina to assault or even kill a slave. After 1774, a white person who murdered a slave would receive only 12 months in prison if it was their first offense. However, according to the 1774 law, if the slave was killed while the white person was using “moderate correction” to punish him or her, there would be no criminal charge."
<quoted text>
it was back then. imagine that.
In 1774 there was no North
Carolina.

The middle ground for NORMAL people then starts with discussions about education and prevention that go BEYOND the unrealistic bullshit of abstainance only.
You're not normal in ANY sense SKanky. You live in a delusional world where these issues are black and white, and LIFE simply isn't that clean cut.
Honey FooFoo: "The middle ground for NORMAL people starts with the understanding that abortion has been happening since the beginning of time, and legislation is NOT going to stop that."

Rape has been happening since the beginning of time.

What's your middle ground on that? Legislatoin is NOT going to stop that, either. Right?

We know what the law does. How would you feel if you were forced to have an abortion for the sake of population growth?
Let's discuss that if it actually happens. Nobody is forcing you to get an abortion and nobody is forcing you not to get an abortion. You're talking about a hypothetical that doesn't exist in our country. You, on the other hand, want to impose your religious dogma on all women.

1) CDC reports 39 women died from illegal abortion the year PRIOR TO Roe v. Wade.

2) "90% of illegal abortions are being done by physicians. Call them what you will, abortionists or anything else, they are still physicians, trained as such; ... They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is ... Abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians."

- From article by Dr. Mary Calderone, medical director of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in The American Journal of Public Health, July 1960 (i.e. BEFORE RvW)

3) Estimated # of illegal abortions/yr prior to RvW: 200,000. After RvW: 1,200,000. ONE MILLION MORE DEAD BABIES PER YEAR AFTER LEGALIZATION.

<quoted text>Ummm Sasylicious,, it really doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to know what she thinks.
She supports CHOICE, which IS what the woman who's pregnant wants to do. If a woman is pregnant and decides to keep the pregnancy, and that is her choice to do so, Foofoo would support her CHOICE. If a woman is pregnant and decides not to keep the pregnancy, and she terminates the pregnancy, foofoo would support her CHOICE to do so. She supports women having the choice in either event.
My God, it's like you're accusing her of standing outside a Lamaze class holding up signs that read - Abort before it's too late!
Did you support Casey Anthony's decision to kill her daughter Kaylee when 12 trimesters old?
