Sure hope so. For the sake of the country. Better to be a moderate Democrat than a progressive liberal loon any day.

So, you think it is OK for a rancher to claim ownership of 600,000 acres of Federal land because his family has been raising cattle on the land for "generations"? The rancher was given 45 days to remove his cattle. He refused. Federal agents are certainly within their rights to seize any cattle left on the land. If the rancher and his family should arm themselves and put up a fight (which they have not done) then killing them would certainly be within the realm of possibilities but that's a real stretch of the imagination.

Hey, are those things starting to migrate yet, because I heard they do that. I know you don't like to get involved in "technicalities," like mammograms, but this would definitely affect your ability to do your husbandly duty, yes, ape? And if so, you're gonna have to worry about her "sharing" those lumpy old things with the unemployed, yet young and virile (will do it with ANYTHING) neighbor lad ...

While slavery is mentioned in the Bible and how slaves were to conduct themselves (Christians and Jews were also slaves), there is no condoning of such.
There is no condoning of beating women. Jesus told men to love their wives even as Christ loved his church.
Jesus went against the Jewish leaders (one time calling them "whitewashed hypocrites") and often condemned the old Jewish laws by saying "it is written...but I tell you now..." and then taught love, compassion, forgiveness, etc.
He was considered a trouble maker and a threat to both the Jewish leaders and the Roman Empire for doing so. Much like how Christians are perceived today. But Jesus said we would be hated because they hated him first.

AUSTIN, Texas — President Obama lauded Lyndon B. Johnson on Thursday and offered lofty reflections on the importance of taking political risks to advance causes like the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but steered clear of any political references to his own battles.
Speaking at the Johnson library here, Obama paid tribute to the Texas Democrat and recalled that Johnson's advisors had warned him against risking too much political capital for the landmark legislation.
"One particularly bold aide said he did not believe a president should spend his time and power on lost causes, however worthy they might be," Obama said. "To which, it is said, President Johnson replied,'Well, what the hell's the presidency for?'"
"What the hell's the presidency for," Obama asked, "if not to fight for causes you believe in?"

Why do you believe we need a "moral guide"? Don't you trust in God's ability to create people with a moral character built within themselves? Seems to me those people living in remote parts of the world have a value system within their hearts. Nobody needs a book to tell difference between right and wrong.
What ¨remote parts of the world¨ are you talking about? Detroit?¨I ain't need no book¨

¨Nobody¨ needs a book? Maybe if half the teen aged felons roaming our streets could read, they'd know more about right and wrong than they do now.

Sounds to me like another choice you want to remove from people's lives.

Sure moron. If you have an active shooter on the base and a dozen other people pull out weapons then how does anybody know who the bad guy is stupid? Do you think he's going to be wearing a black hat and a bandana over his face or wearing a sign? The result would be confusion with innocent people getting shot and more chance for the shooter to get away.
You're an idiot!
because the good guys won't draw their weapons until they spot the bad guy.......

guess you prefer cops who shoot innocent people.....

Why is woodtick suddenly attacking Christianity? Probably too much bad news on his side, I suppose. It's just one of the many cards they pull out when things get desperate.
But it proves progressive liberals have an agenda that goes far and beyond politics and just demonizing conservatives (even non-Christian ones) for their differing views.
suddenly?!? where have you been? i didn't bring up a proven false religious cult into rational discussion...

and yet i am not progressive, or liberal, as all my posts clearly show.

i am only giving the facts about your religious cult no attack...just facts. facts you have shown over and over again you cannot even try to counter....

Not according to the rancher, reptard. He claims "he does not need to recognize federal government jurisdiction on land that his family has used, improved and ranched since the late 1800s." Seems to me HE is the one who has "usage" and "ownership" confused.

Your comparing Obama to Chavez and the current Venezuelan government is just more evidence of your hate inspired delusions.
lots of "working families" received no tax break from Porkulus and are now paying higher taxes to support welfare bums on Medicaid and ObamaKKKare.....

Wrong again Carol! The producer of the video, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula who used the alias "Sam Bacile" was not put in jail for exercising his First Amendment rights, he was jailed for violating the terms of his probation stemming from his conviction on charges of bank fraud. Conditions of Nakoula's probation include not using aliases and not using the Internet without prior approval from his probation officer.
Go ahead Carol, keep demonstrating on a daily basis that you don't know what the hell you're talking about, just like in the Elane Photography case which you seem to be avoiding.
Oh by the way Carol, how long did Osama Bin Laden remain free?
so, he violated his probation by making the video and was arrested b y Obama's Gestapo thugs.....

Bush signs landmark Medicare bill into law
President Bush:'Giving older Americans better choices'
Monday, December 8, 2003 Posted: 1:23 PM EST (1823 GMT)
WASHINGTON (CNN)-- President Bush on Monday signed into law landmark Medicare reform legislation that includes prescription drug benefits and has sparked a bitter fight between opponents and supporters.
Speaking at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, Bush characterized the measure as "the greatest advance in health care coverage for America's seniors since the founding of Medicare."
Backers say the $400 billion Medicare Prescription Drug Modernization Act will provide much-needed help for the nation's 40 million senior citizens to buy medications; critics say it is a giveaway to drug makers and insurance companies and a prelude to the dismantling of the program.(Interactive: Prescription coverage)
"Our government," Bush said, "is finally bringing prescription drug coverage to the seniors of America."
"With this law, we're giving older Americans better choices and more control over their health care, so they can receive the modern medical care they deserve," he said.
In addition to the prescription drug benefits, the measure provides billions of dollars in subsidies to insurance companies and health maintenance organizations, and takes the first step toward allowing private plans to compete with Medicare.(Interactive: Prescription for change)
It is the largest expansion of Medicare since the program was created in 1965, though most of its provisions won't take effect for several years. The drug benefit, for example, does not take effect until 2006. Before that, seniors will be able to purchase a discount card that could provide a 10 to 25 percent off prescription drugs.
"Our nation has made a promise, a solemn promise, to America's seniors," Bush said. "We have pledged to help our citizens find affordable medical care in the later years of life."
"These reforms are the act of a vibrant and compassionate government," Bush said.
