Whoopsie daisy! I meant to link to Carhartt - not stargazer lilies. LOL Carhartt has really well made durable work clothing. Farmers and gardeners like that wear, and if you want something to withstand multiple assaults from actually working on the land, it's good to have Carhartt clothing for that purpose;

I just don't agree that insulting those who farm and garden in America is a good thing. God bless the farmers and gardeners. We can't all be one percenters, nor should we be. Otherwise, we'd be a nation of self-absorbed a-holes and nobody to help those who are wholly incompetent and/or too lazy to take care of themselves and are dependent on others to "DO" for them because they'd likely die two weeks into a crisis of no maids, servants, hired help, etc. How many one percenters have a "bug-out" pack ready to go? I suppose they just plan on calling Reilly to fix everything and restore power, water, to cook, clean and wait on them hand in foot? NEWSFLASH! Reilly didn't make it. Now what?

<quoted text>Atheists? Not a cult? Here is an opposing opinion which I find to be of interest:
http://www.ted.com/conversations/13943/is_ath...
IS ATHEISM JUST ANOTHER CULT, WITH THEIR OWN DOGMA, LIKE RELIGIOUS CULTS?
Is Atheism just another cult, like a religious cult, with people who believe there is no god, and in most cases also that what is presented by science is the absolute truth? Do people of an Agnostic persuasion believe, atheists have a blind faith in science, believing what they show, and measure is the last word about reality; believing that this Science supports their side of the debate while excluding the Religious view.
Those in the middle of the God/No God debate (Agnostics) have stated that such a claim is delusional and is indicative of cult mentality on par with religious cultism. It requires blind belief God does not exist which is dogmatic because there is no proof (currently) that is acceptably to the Agnostic crowd that God is or is not. Agnostics see the gaps in Scientific knowledge and try to keep an open mind pertaining to spiritual ideas and their connection to the real world. They have sometimes been accused of creating the Scientific idea of Creationism which has gathered steam in the last decade or so. Being in the middle, They are attacked by both sides of the debate, as will be demonstrated in this debate question.
when have i ever claimed i was an atheist?

yes many atheists do display cult like adherence o certain dogmas.

most people i know that are not members of religious cults just acknowledge that all the man made gods have been proven false and that there isn't one teensy shred of evidence for any god, gods or goddesses ever existing.

Obama’s laughable stand-up routine
By Jonah Goldberg
April 3, 2014 | 7:23pm
President Obama was doing his favorite thing this week: talking to crowds of adoring young people who already agree with him while acting like he persuaded them about something.
They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he’s a really funny guy. On Wednesday, he told a University of Michigan crowd of 1,400 that he visited a local deli, Zingerman’s. He proceeded to tell a long story about ordering the small Reuben sandwich, which he said was “killer.” That got a good laugh. Then he explained how he thought the sandwich was too big, so he shared it with his adviser, Valerie Jarrett.
“After I finished [my] half, I wanted [her] half back,” Obama said.“But it was too late, all she had was the pickle — so I took the pickle.”
“Took the pickle” was a huge laugh line.
Pickle is a funny word, but still. When an audience thinks this is a knee-slapper, you know it’s not a rough crowd.
But Obama had a serious point to make as well. Zingerman’s “is a business that treats its workers well and rewards honest work with honest wages. And that’s what I’m here to talk about today.” He then segued into a pitch for raising the minimum wage.
National Review’s Andrew Johnson noted that Zingerman’s is pretty expensive. That small Reuben cost $13.99 — pickle included. The large goes for nearly $17. The irony might have been lost on Obama that Zingerman’s “honest wages” also lead to high prices.
Using Zingerman’s as his comedic muse, the president transformed into Zinger-Man. According to the Washington Post, Obama hurled “a series of zingers to draw a contrast with Republicans on the economy in an election year.”
Breaking slightly from the standard talking point that the GOP is out of ideas, Obama said,“Now, to give them credit, they do have one original idea, which is to repeal ObamaCare.”
He then turned to Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal:“If they tried to sell this sandwich at Zingerman’s, they’d have to call it the Stinkburger, or the Meanwich.”....

GOP Budget Widely Slammed, But Left's Proposal Just Ignored
House GOP budget a 'Stinkburger,' says Obama, but president and national media continue to ignore progressive budget alternative
April 3, 2014 / http://tinyurl.com/l46r3al
The vision of a Republican budget was presented by Rep. Paul Ryan this week and the only thing some of his colleagues on the right don't like about it is that it doesn't do enough to punish the poor and working class while it coddles the rich and insulates corporate power.
For progressives, the Ryan latest budget—like those before it—represents a clear view into the Republican mindset in which austerity economics rule and the vision of shared prosperity is eviscerated by attacks on social programs, including Medicare, higher education grants, food and poverty assistance, job training initiatives and others.
Also familiar in the pattern of budget politics, however, is that while the Ryan budget—unpopular as it is among all sections of voters—receives round coverage, the progressive alternative, as contained in the Better Off Budget presented last month, continues to be ignored in the media conversation.
According to Robert Greenstein, president of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the Ryan budget, dubbed by its author as a "Path to Prosperity," as anything but that for most Americans.
http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2014/04/...
I missed the relation to what prominent black americans said about Il Douche, was it in code, by chance?

We can either have Ryan's path to prosperity or the continuation of the demorats obscene bloated deficits and massive debt, we can't have both. I'll take Ryan over the coming bankruptcy demorats have planned for us.

So, you aren't an atheist? Are you an agnostic in search of "proof"? Just curious. I ask this because you continue to lambaste God and Christians every time anybody mentions faith. Most agnostics I know (and I know quite a few) are a little more reserved and less on the offensive. They ask and then mull things over. At the core, they want there to be a God, but they're skeptical.

Atheists have already decided and reject every effort toward further consideration. Their minds are closed to the possibility. They have to see it to believe it. There is much about science and the scientific method that cannot yet be seen and proven. As you are certainly well aware, it sometimes takes more than one's lifetime to prove a theory or develop the necessary tools with which to explain why something works the way it does.

Just sayin', Woodtick. Maybe let people express their faith without calling them something you refuse to accept. You don't have to agree, but neither do you have proof that God does NOT exist.

Another way to express that is the conviction that if we can dream or imagine it (whatever "it" is), it can conceivably come to be eventually. How much of what was once considered science fiction has become reality? Humm?

Why do you think those black Americans who spoke out should be all that much smarter than you've shown us you aren't? We've got a whole bunch of folks duped into thinking men in power will or should care about them when the exact opposite is true.

These plutocrats/oligarchs couldn't care less about the color of your skin. Just because you're white, you aren't their "brothers" anymore than just because you're black, Obama should be viewed as your daddy. This is a FINANCIAL club - not an extended family association based on genetic profile. If there's any affinity beyond money, it's toward education and prestige and common backgrounds. That's certainly not the 47 % of 'heathens' in which Mittens had no interest and which the party of "No" continues to show it has zero comprehension about. But, dang! They can still vote. Will they vote to be "gutted" because they're p*ssed at Obama? TBD
