Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Would your god command a follower to call someone "dumb ass"?

Let me guess...
1. He didn't use a mega phone.
2. He didn't use a telephone.
3. Nobody else can hear him.
4. The voice came out the sky.
5. You heard the voice in your head.
6. You were drinking at the time.
7. You didn't actually see anybody.
8. You stopped drinking suddenly after years of being an alcoholic.
9. You are an escaped mental patient.
10. You didn't really hear it.

I know I can seem gruff. But I do consider it a loss that we put a guy in the Oval Office that did those things there to a 19 year-old intern. When it broke, Sam Donaldson said if it's true, he's gone. And that was just the sex part. The same liberals who told us that sexual harassment was serious in the workplace when there is a huge differential in power between the boss and the employee,yet I don't. crawfished and defended Slick Willie. But they hounded Bob Packwood from office, an old doddering man who tried to kiss his secretary.
You may have a point. But my willingness to investigate it at this point is limited. Why?

This is all so unpleasant to me. I have made my decision to disown and walk away from all of this unpleasantness, which limits its relevance in my life now.

This leaves me straddling contradictory positions: a general desire to be informed combined with my connection to the people that I left behind - including you - against the desire to be rid of this stuff forever and to not look back at any of it again. I care, yet I don't. Do you understand that? I'll bet you do.

But to put it in perspective, no, it was not Clinton's worse crime. He lost me when he got a military induction notice and never showed up. And when Jennifer Flowers played her tape of him asking her to perjure herself, and George Stephanopoulous and others ran out and said "The tape's doctored! That's not Governor Clinton!"
Then the media started referring to it as "the man on the tape". While his boys were saying it wasn't Bill, Bill was on the phone with Mario Cuomo apologizing for calling him a "little mafioso" on the tape.
Those issues do not motivate me. Nor do his sexual escapades. I still like and admire the man.

Nevertheless, Buck, I can't say often enough how much more I like this new arrangement between us, and the ability to disagree amicably, and with courtesy. Even if we disagree about everything else, we both seem to want to help America restore itself, and to get along with one another - I hope.

Incidentally, I am now about 30 minutes into the Waco documentary. I will probably end up sharing your misgivings about the government's role there. It looks dirty.

I doubt, however, that I will come to see the adult Christians involved as innocents. They shot back, and they didn't release their children, and they didn't surrender. How can whatever I am about to see make that go away?

Yes, it's tragic. But it's America: guns and bibles. How could it not be tragic?

Pitiful as it is, I will guarantee that if you didn't have the Mexican Federales protecting your impotent ass there you would be scrounging up whatever you could to hire Yul Brynner, Steve Mcqueen, and crew.
American muscle of that sort is stronger. Lose your check and the Federales and the locals would have no use for your tired Yanqui ass.
You are a long ways from home if the system crumbles a bit. A very long ways. But keep the faith.
Sometimes, you seem even less lucid.

Why don't you recognize that you couldn't possibly have a clue who I am, what I think, or what my world is like? You just appear disconnected and irrelevant when you guess, and so badly.

Lose my check? WTF? I could go broke tomorrow, return to the States to work the next day, and be back here again in 5-10 years before age 70. What would you know about any of that?

Like I said before, remember that when they bust you for possession. Or violating some law down there you didn't know existed. Which will of course incur considerable expense on your part. About as much as they can squeeze out of you.
You wish, Little Man. You have always and ever fantasized about my demise. Your envy is palpable.

This is your own little drama, borne of your own insecurities and regrets about the choices you have made and the small life you chose to live. You're such an easy target that I feel a little guilty retaliating.

It's our house. They were tenants. Hey, Iman.
CNBC just reported that for 2010, the top 40% of income earners paid 106% of all federal income taxes. The lower 40% paid -6%.(negative 6%)
This is because the bottom 40 received more in federal tax credits than they paid in. Those wealthy people get all the breaks, huh? Bwahahahaahahaaaaa....
Lucky poor people!

You SHOULD fight the battles you find worthy. I do.

If Mexico is a possibility, send me a PM and I'll share what I know with you - and anybody else that is interested. We're well satisfied with our choice and this life.

When I answered your post, for some reason, I thought it was Riverside Redneck I was responding to. You don't need my advice or my help, although I would share whatever I have or know with you.

The war on drugs causes people to get hooked on drugs.
The War on Drugs created the illegal drug trade, with drug pushers who will use any means to get people hooked. Since it's already an illegal enterprise, they have no reason to use ethical business practices.

Sorry, I have to be a quibbledick. I'll give you "armed cult". Give you "entrenched after a shootout". Have to take away "thought to be abusing children". That was made up. Have to omit "apocalyptic ranting", since people do that all the time, including environmentalists. It's not a substantive factor. Have to call you on some omissions, as in the nature of the raid, and the extreme nature of the resolution of the standoff. But hey, for you, not bad.
Thanks. I'll get back to you after I'm done with the video.

My response was to your Bush conversation about ramming through elements of domestic surveilance, unless I misread it. He was a liberal on those issues.
No problem. I just needed to know what you meant by liberal. For you, Bush and the illegal invasion of privacy are liberalism. By that reckoning, I agree that liberalism has been a disaster. It certainly was in Nazi Germany.

Reports say the ATF agents who were shot and those dragging them to safety were praying. I don't hold the praying against them. Do you think the agents should have died because they were praying?
No.

Do you think that they should have lived because they were?

Road map. It doesn't take a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

Buck Crick wrote:
When our government decides to burn citizens alive, they should give warning, at least. Can you agree on that? Not only that, but before they tore into the building with tanks, chewing up some persons with the tracks, they announced on loud speaker that they would not make an armed attack. Then, as aerial video shows, started firing automatic weapons into the house.
I'm not here to defend that government. That's a separate issue for me.

I did - years ago. It was surrealistic.

Were you aware that today is a big holiday in Mexico - Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe? We've been hearing bandas and cohetes all day.
