Barack Obama, our next President

Your opinion proves you to be a fool and a bigot.

The Constitution says you're a liar.

Most of the Founding Fathers were Diests.

Not at all the same as Christians, so you're dead wrong.

Your opinions are meaningless and dumb.

The laws state otherwise.

Yes, Mitch McConnell is destroying the Senate
I recommend a solid New York Times editorial today about the unprecedented, outrageous obstruction by Republican senators against President Obama’s nominees, especially his executive branch nominees.
It’s critically important to give this story as much attention as it deserves — which is quite a lot. Just the names alone: Hagel, Brennan, McCarthy, Perez, Cordray ... and that’s only the ones from this term whom the Times mentions. Remember, however, that every single nomination is being subjected to a 60-vote requirement. That’s a filibuster, and it means that every single nominee is being filibustered. The only question is how many Republicans will support the filibuster, not whether there is one. And as the Times points out, there are additional forms of obstruction, too, whether it’s Sen. Rand Paul’s day-long speech, or asking the nominees to answering never-ending extraneous questions.
I’ve been harsh to Obama and Senate Democrats for not fighting back hard enough, but the main problem here is the Republicans in general, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell specifically.
Remember, a lot of this is simply grandstanding. Oh, yes, some of it is intended to really change policy — the nullification involved in the Cordray filibuster, for example — but most of it is just showing the flag. Never mind that it harms the nation by making it harder for government departments and agencies to function well. Or, for some Senate Republicans, maybe a poorly functioning government is a bonus.
The worst part is that it will ultimately make it impossible for the Senate to use the nomination process for legitimate attempts to influence policy, either through raising issues (as Rand Paul did) or bargaining over a state interest (as Sen. Roy Blunt is doing on the McCarthy nomination). There’s just no way to know which of these obstructions are real and which are simply excuses for obstruction-for-the-sake-of-ob struction, and so the majority has to shut them all down by cloture whenever possible. In other words, endless filibusters and other obstruction aren’t just bad for the government, but they’re bad for the Senate.
The bottom line: Democrats would be fully justified in moving to majority-imposed rules reform on executive-branch nominations. The best solution would be simple majority cloture — preserving the right of individual senators to slow things down a bit, but making it easy for the majority to act when it wants. But one way or another, it has to end.

But it is the Constitution that rules.

If it's not in the Constitution, it's as meaningless as you and your sockpuppetas, Waxturd.

The Constitution says you're an idiot. It's right.

Twist and lie?? That's your forte'.

Where in the Constitution does it say th euSA is a Christian nation??
It doesn't.
Here's what it says;
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"
Just so stupid people like you understand clearly, that means that all religions are the same in the USA. All are free to worship as they please, no one religion or belief is allowed to be assumed the 'nations religion'.
Our Constitution considers Islam to be as valid a religion as Christianity.
Sorry, you lose.

Well....you libs always seem to suggest that we are a overweight
country or a greedy country....yet I don't think the
Constitution says anything about that.
And I never said anything about all other religion should not
be considered valid.
Matters not to me what religion a person may choose.
And I did not lie....I simply gave my opinion.

Almost 8 out of 10 Americans identify with a Christian religion according to a 2009 gallup poll.

Watched another great documentary last night. If anyone is truly interested in learning the entire history of the Muslim/Jewish/Christian conflict in Israel, search and watch, "Jeruselem: The Center of the World". PBS channel.

For any of you truth seekers out there, I mean.

Leaves no question in anyone's mind about the present day conflict.

Also makes our own history look like a cameo part on the stage of world history.

Hey, nuc, guess what? Found myself a beautiful old antique-looking wooden rocking chair in a community thrift store yesterday for $18!

It's in great shape and rocks like a charm.

Quality wooden rocking chairs aren't cheap. I'm so proud of myself for being such a thrifty shopper/bargain hunter. Thought you'd be proud too.

Ok, I'm back. I see no one has even attempted to answer my questions, eh? Alright, I'll do it myself.
1.
Q: Do you deny Obamacare is a tax law with unknown costs and punitive fines?
A: Yes. I'll take the second part of the evasion first: It's not a tax law it's an insurance law. Justice Roberts had to CALL it a tax law because otherwise he couldn't have voted for it or you guys would take away his membership card in the Confederacy. The fact that most people find the insurance industry terribly taxing is more to the point. Incidentally, they are denying payment for your anti-anxiety treatments on Topix.
2.
Q: Do you deny government overstepping its boundaries in the free market leads to governement (sp.) dependency?
A: These carefully parsed questions are, of course, designed to elicit the desired response, so, first let me say, go fuck yourself and the conservative e-blog you subscribe to. Secondly, The government is the government. It has police powers to reinforce that point. The "free-market," on the other hand, is the governor of your mind, hence it's tiny, myopic focus. We voted for out government, but had the free market and its loud and stupid advocates imposed upon us like an annoying fat juicy hemmorhoid. In the same way that a Robin is a bird but a bird is not necessarily a Robin, you keep injecting the concept of independent free markets into a discussion of government thereby proving unequivocally you're a birdbrain. Free markets (places to steal from others without supervision) are not governments and neither are governments free-markets.
As for the annoyingly increasing dependency of your fellow citizens upon the largesse of government, first re-read the paragraph above this one. Secondly, go fuck yourself and your free-market. I'll say it again for you, carol, since you are a stupid whore in the thrall of some fat man somewhere. In order for there to be an increasing amount of the people's wealth in the hands of a smaller and smaller number of individuals they first have to take it from somewhere. Contrary to the Jews' manna from heaven theory, the wealth that is increasingly in the hands of fewer and fewer people HAS TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE YOU DUMB BITCH!!! AND WHEN YOU TAKE AWAY SOMEONE'S MONEY YOU ELIMINATE HIS ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MUCH TOUTED FREE-MARKET EXCEPT, PERHAPS, BY SELLING BLOOD, OR, AS IN YOUR CASE...
(at this point in the conversation, carol, I just want you to recognize that I am SCREAMING AT YOU!!!! Not because I'm angry, particularly, more because you're obviously deaf!)
The stoopid pipeline from Cananda to Texas is bullshit, carol, it accomplishes nothing except condensing further control of oil energy in the hands of some of the dumbest and most self-serving people on earth.
I'm just going to blow through these last few because they're simply restatements of the principle that greed is good and poorer people are bad, a silly and stoopid contention.
to be continued...
"The government is the government. It has police powers to reinforce that point."

That's all you need to say. You waved your sign.

WE are the government. WE are the entrepreneurs and job creators.
WE are responsible for ourselves by our education, our skills, our choices and the opportunities provided to US by the 1% who make it possible. The government thwarting and overshadowing US leads to police powers reinforcing it.

Are you North Korean by any chance?

Goodbye, Pro-Gay Young Christians?

Lots of buzz about Evangelical blogger Rachel Held Evans’s piece on how many, many young Evangelicals are so upset with the church on how it has handled homosexuality that they’re walking out the door. She writes about the North Carolina amendment, and how large numbers of Evangelicals under 40 either disagree with traditional Christian teaching on homosexuality, or, if they accept traditional teaching, don’t think it’s as big a deal as older Christians think. Excerpt:

So my question for those evangelicals leading the charge in the culture wars is this: Is it worth it?

Is a political “victory” really worth losing millions more young people to cynicism regarding the Church?

Is a political “victory” worth further alienating people who identify as LGBT?

Is a political “victory” worth perpetuating the idea that evangelical Christians are at war with gays and lesbians?

And is a political “victory” worth drowning out that quiet but persistent internal voice that asks—what if we get this wrong?

Interesting. I wonder if Held Evans and her generation wonder if 2,000 years of Christian tradition and the clear instruction of the Bible indicates that maybe they, and contemporary American culture, have this wrong?

In any case, I don’t think there’s much doubt that the numbers she cites in her post indicating the falling-away of young adults from organized religion are valid. In their book “American Grace,” the social scientists Robert Putnam and David Campbell sifted through the exhaustive research on American religious attitudes today, and found that the abandonment of organized religion by the young is the biggest story in American religion today. The key point, though, is that they are not becoming atheists; they are rather becoming “spiritual but not religious” types.

Crucially, the data cited in “American Grace” show that the young began to fall away from the church in the early 1990s, around the time that homosexuality, including same-sex marriage, began to be a topic of mainstream discussion. Understand, it’s not that Evangelicals are becoming more liberal, necessarily (though some are); it’s that young people who were raised Evangelical are becoming more liberal, and ceasing to identify with Evangelicalism. In the book, the scholars postulate that sympathy for the gay rights movement among late X-ers and Millennials has a lot to do with it.

But — and here’s the thing — they also found that liberal churches are not benefiting from the culture shift. Bob Putnam has said in interviews (and maybe too in the book, I can’t recall) that if the Christian church wants to hold on to its young, it will have to liberalize on homosexuality. But his own research shows that liberalization on homosexuality has not benefited the churches that have done so. They continue to decline as well. Something else is going on with young Americans and institutional religion.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher...

...I expect a severe winnowing in the ranks of Christians over the course of my lifetime. It is surely never the case that truth is determined by numbers. Trads like me point to the extinction of liberal nun orders as an example of how abandoning tradition leads to a kind of death, but we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that any church or religion has to be prepared to die for the sake of the truth. That is, better to die in truth than to live for a lie. I think about how hard it would have been for a Christian in the Jim Crow South to repudiate, if only in his own heart and mind, the anti-Christian racism widely held in the culture around him, mostly because it was so normative in that day and age. Similarly, for traditional Christians, preparing our children to hold on to certain truths of the faith in the post-Christian culture that now exists, and that is fast coming into being, is going to be an incredibly difficult challenge.

Your own stupidity proves you wrong!!

""One of the many attacks on our country from the Religious Right is the claim that our country is a Christian Nation...not just that the majority of people are Christians, but that the country itself was founded by Christians, for Christians. However, a little research into American history will show that this statement is a lie. Those people who spread this lie are known as Christian Revisionists. They are attempting to rewrite history, in much the same way as holocaust deniers are. The men responsible for building the foundation of the United States were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They were Deists who did not believe the bible was true. They were Freethinkers who relied on their reason, not their faith.

If the U.S. was founded on the Christian religion, the Constitution would clearly say so--but it does not. Nowhere does the Constitution say: "The United States is a Christian Nation", or anything even close to that. In fact, the words "Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, Creator, Divine, and God" are never mentioned in the Constitution-- not even once. Nowhere in the Constitution is religion mentioned, except in exclusionary terms. When the Founders wrote the nation's Constitution, they specified that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." (Article 6, section 3) This provision was radical in its day-- giving equal citizenship to believers and non-believers alike. They wanted to ensure that no religion could make the claim of being the official, national religion, such as England had. ""

The earliest Americans came here to escape what??

Religious persecution.

The religion happened to be Christian. Those are the folks that the first Americans were escaping from.

You remain a clueless right wing nitwit.

Carol enjoys "History for idiots"

It's the only way she can absorb anything. In quick, opinionated videos.

Then she takes a brief dramatization of history and turns it into "The whole truth, nothing but the truth."

Makes her claims to have been a teacher appear even funnier.

Likely that's why she doesn't refer to that anymore.

Carol wishes she had friends to hang out with. But as she's often stated, she has no friends or social life.

She even does Church via the internet!!
