Your name describes you well. Obama, Messiah though he is, does not control the world's oil prices.

It is not "one thing" to help the poor. It is everything that matters in being a noble human being.
You will of course explain what factors contribute to the making of more poor. I don't suppose the obstruction of a jobs bill, or denying the extension of unemployment benefits, or opposing an increase in the minimum wage, or sub-standard public schools would have anything to do with it.

Perhaps you should go back and re-read starting at page one.
As you are once again wrong and have proven nothing.

You are always claiming "Proven Fact" but show nothing to support your claims.

Since the entire Bible (take your pick) was written and translated by man, there is where the problem lies, with man.

I am sure you can find many discrepancies in the Bible, but God didn't write it.
Man is fallible, he makes mistakes, and all too often he gets it wrong.

The only things I need concern myself with are God's laws. Not stories of our creation.

You cannot disprove God.
You cannot disprove God created the Heavens and Earth.
You cannot disprove God created all life on Earth.

I agree.

Why don't people read The Bill Of Rights ? Specifically the 9th Amendment and the 10th Amendment.

Government can create an environment that creates jobs. And government, at least our government, is supposed to provide a safety net to keep the needy from falling through the cracks. Sadly, it doesn't alway succeed.

As for your totalitarianism shtick in describing the U.S., I got past that when I was 16.

No the government is not their to keep you safe or provide anything for you. It is on;ly supposed to uphold freedom and liberty for it's citizens. Everything else is up to you as a free person.

In 1939, Russia invaded Poland and the U.S. did nothing.

In 1956, Russia invaded Hungary and the U.S. did nothing.

In 1968, Russia invaded Czechoslovakia and the U.S. did nothing.

In 1979, Russia invaded Afghanistan and the U.S. did nothing.

In 2008, Russia invaded Georgia and the U.S. did nothing.

In 2014, Russia invaded Ukraine and the U.S. did nothing.

Why should Putin worry about what the U.S. thinks whenever Russia invades a country ?

You would have to ask someone from the Tea Party that question.

i already covered this,(preemptively , as i knew your pathetic level of theology would bring it up...and shown you how that argument doesn't work...you should actually read , then post...or learn, then post, it would save further embarrassment such as this...
i, and thousands of others. can certainly prove that the god the bible attempted to create does not exist. just as all others gods created by man (thor, zeus, the corn twins, spider woman, saturn, the great turtle mother sky, father earth)do not exist. why would you expect the god of your cult to be different? do you have any factual proof of its existence beyond that of any other cult's created god, gods or goddesses? i thought not...
you might take a lesson in the fact that i totally preemptively destroyed your argument..kind of like dealing with a pesky mosquito...
you are not up to this level of theological discussion, not even close. go back to your sunday school teacher ahd see if you can get a refund.....
You win, I am debating with an idiot and am getting out before I am brought down to your level.

I'm married too. My wife, two sons, one dog, one wolf, and five cats all have a role in my limits. But I wouldn't want it any other way.
