How could you interpret the facts differently? Geological, archeological, and dendrochronology show no evidence of a world wide flood. This has been hashed out a million times, even the logistics just makes it impossible. So where is your evidence? Aside from the assertion in the bible, that's not evidence, that's called an assertion.

I could live with some reasonable gun control.

But I would like to point out that Japan has stringent gun laws.

That didn’t stop a group of radicals from using Sarin Gas on the general public. Thousands were affected by this terrorist act.(1995)

In your own country in 2009, 173 people were mass murdered by arsonist.

Perhaps Australia should outlaw, gasoline, flammables, matches, fire starter, lighters, magnifying glass and flint.

While our countries have a lot of similarities, we do have some major differences.

How many people in your country vs the US?
How many of those people immigrated from a country with strict gun laws?
What are the differences in hunting? I grew up in Pennsylvania; the first day of deer season was a basically state holiday.

I worry a lot more about losing our freedoms, one by one, than I care about firearms.

No I didn't.

You said:

"When you are from the hills of Kentucky and the US, guns and god are all you know..."

See the comma?

"When you are from the hills of Kentucky and the US,"

"guns and god are all you know..."

You are implying that if one if rom "the hills of Kentucky and the US" then all they know are gods and guns...

So I ask again, what is "the hills of Kentucky and the US"??

Fiscal Cliff Deadline:

The majority of US the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine; insist on electing Obnoxious President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members.

That defies USA Labor, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demanding every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit.

This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

Unless President Obama and Congress agree to comply with USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

President and Elected Officials will continue to hold Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.

To fund Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

Pay sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. That gets only product or service.

Defying USA Labor Law, the Constitution, and Realities demands will bankrupt USA. Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; Makes funding schools IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren's children life UNAFFORDABLE; and created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt. America’s grandchildren’s children are responsible to pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old. America’s grandchildren’s children cannot pay this debt with the $7.25 per hour Government mandated labor wage in a hundred million years.

In your own country in 2009, 173 people were mass murdered by arsonist. Not to mention the millions of animals that died in the fires. Perhaps Australia should outlaw, gasoline, flammables, matches, fire starter, lighters, magnifying glass and flint. Your road map needs some more work.
