i think the record will show that the GOP affliction of practicing at failing is consistently bringing the same results.
most musicians learn from what other musicians do. as long as the GOP is stuck in it's incestuous cycle of 'learning', it's just going to keep failing to further it's intellect.
so i can play the guitar like Bruce Cockburn just by listening to his music and watching him play? sorry, tried that and it didn't work.

no musicians learn by practice.

einstein has made many wrong statements, this is one of them.the folly is , of course, not einstien's everyone makes erroneous statements, the folly is in people believing that everything a brilliant person said is correct.

on the taxation issue, you are correct, since the rich pay, by far, the majority of the taxes in this nation we are not ready to stop that overburden of responsiblity on them until the rest of the nation is willing to step up to the plate and pay their fair share also...

Ruth Ginsburg noted in her dissenting opinon that "IUDs are expensive and that removing company support for them could leave some female employees without the "most effective" medical option for their needs." "Illegal" may have been the wrong word but it comes pretty darn close. If you allow companies to forbid their insurance carrier from paying for contraceptives, you pretty much make them "illegal" in the workplace.
"illegal" in the work place--good grief

Most Health Care exchanges does not cover dental care.....Dental care is "illegal" in the work place

Most Health Care exchanges does not cover glasses ......Glasses are "illegal" in the work place

Many of the Health Care exchanges limits who they will pay to provide services.......Your doctor is "illegal" in the work place

Look Mr. 62 percent.

When were they degraded? Experts admit the residues can in fact be used.

“It is doubtful that Isis have the expertise to use a fully functioning chemical munition but there are materials on site that could be used in an improvised explosive device,” he told the Telegraph.“We have seen that Isis has used chemicals in explosions in Iraq before and has carried out experiments in Syria.”

no dear, you showed that obama cannot skirt the law as mdbuilder suggested he does all the time. i asked why he doesn't just do that then and you pointed out that it cannot be done as our system of checks and balances prevents it...

sad that you don't even know what you are doing. sad, but not unexpected from previous posts of yours.

"Poor people have been voting Democrat for 50 years and they're still poor." Charles Barkley
There will always be poor people. That doesn't mean they don't rise to the middle or upper class under a Democratic president.
However, since you opened the door by giving credence to a basketball player:
" I was a Republican until they lost their minds, The word 'conservative' means 'discriminatory,' practically. It's a form of political discrimination. What do the Republicans run on? Against gay marriage and for a war that makes no sense. A war that was based on faulty intelligence. That's all they ever talk about. That and immigration. Another discriminatory argument for political gain." (Charles Barkley)
"The Republicans are full of it. The Democrats are a little less full of it." (Charles Barkley)
"I don't like the way the Republicans are taking this country. Every time I hear the word "conservative," it makes me sick to my stomach, because they're really just fake Christians, as I call them. That's all they are." (Charles Barkley)
On "fake Christians": "Well, I think they -- they want to be judge and jury. Like, I'm for gay marriage. It's none of my business if gay people want to get married. I'm pro-choice. And I think these Christians -- first of all, they're supposed to be -- they're not supposed to judge other people. But they're the most hypocritical judge of people we have in this country. And it bugs the hell out of me. They act like they're Christians. And they're not forgiving at all." (Charles Barkley)

I think the only churches you should be so vehemently concerned with are those mosques given tax exempt status and operating as fronts for radical islamic groups.
Their shuffling of vast capital to these groups are imposing a moral code, theirs.
It's called jihad and sharia.
Talk about "telling people with no moral code" in the same sentence with "how to run others' treacherous lives ... " might then make sense.
And as long as these mosques keep receiving tax exemptions from mainly leftist/corrupt administrations, they're going to continue to vote Democrat.
Along with the vast population of Illegal Mexicans ...
Add to that the impoverished minorities ...
And the fluff head young leftists ...
Don't forget the Hollywooders ...
That is a large voter base that out numbers The Evangelical Christian vote.
Many who voted for Baraq, by the way. RE: Black Baptists. Liberal Evangelicals. Evangelical Christian is synonymous with Born Again Christian.
Which makes your argument against Evangelical Christians rather irrelevant.
And mirrors the vitriolic hatred for Christians shared by the leftist Communists and Muslims.
And that's all I have to state on this subject ...
Under the Constitution all religions including Islam are equal in the eyes of the law you miserable, ignorant bigot. It's not Muslims that are trying to impose their beliefs on others, it's right wing Christians who among other things want to deny gays and lesbians equal rights and protections under the law, by throwing road blocks into a woman's right to control their own bodies and even what kind of contraceptives they can get through insurance.
Illegal immigrants don't vote for anyone STUPID.
Poor minorities have the same right to vote as you do you racist piece of fecal matter.
The rest of your post is just asinine hog wash.
You're an idiot Olive; you always have been and always will be!

Edited response. Is it not a fact poor people vote Democrat? Is it not a fact that poverty levels are at record heights. There is a disconnect here.
