There just seems to be zero boundaries any more in politics as people seem desensitized, distracted, apathetic, or ignorant to what goes on these days. Politics have gotten nastier and nastier and it isn't even always the stuff we see right away but the street tactics like misleading votings as to where to vote and when, telling them polls are closed, etc. But a commercial damaging to the reputation of American businesses vital to rebuilding the economy no less that isn't true and questions their patriotism and commitment to the country is inexcusable IMO

Skom,

So I ask you; what are the factories for if not for production?
While loading at the Baltimore docks this past summer I got to see first hand what is known as a RO-RO or Roll On-Roll Off megaship designed especially for wheeled vehicles. Massive comes to mind ...

I also find it interesting, many that call themselves Christian ...have taken a bold stance against abortion ...yet when it comes to employment ...these same Christians are prepared to throw the unborn under the bus (pun intended). Many I also find are in favor of gay marriage, and prepared to vote for those that favor both.
It would appear the Christians are divided on the issues of abortion and gay marriage especially when following Christian doctrine stands in the way of finding employment/remaining employed.
Please understand, I'm not judging. I'm simply stating what I see thru my eyes ...others may see differently.
Fiat who has a majority share in Chrysler has plants all over the world.But the Jeep is the trademark vehicle of the Detroit Auto and isn't going anywhere. Plus the ad gave the impression basically the companies were saved simply so they could outsource all their labor to foreign countries.That simply isn't true.They have added a lot of job and dollars into the economy and have plans to continue pumping more in. Every auto company these days uses plans here and there It is why cars now have to list where each part comes from as some cars built domestically have more foreign parts and vice versa. But to me it was a clear attempt to smear and misrepresent two companies we need as we rebuild the economy only because by smearing them he could lessen the impact of Obama's involvement in the bailout being considered successful.

Basically, slam auto slams the bailout which slams Obama. I know you follow but just simplifying. There is just too much at stake but even if there wasn't he tried to make GM and Chrysler look bad just to get at Obama and gave an overall impression that simply wasn't true. If candidates wants to take one small little piece of an overall picture and blow it out of proportion to try to make each other look bad that is one thing. Making two companies struggling to get back on top that are so important to the economy and millions upon millions of jobs either directly or indirectly, that is just something a president can't do IMO

As far as abortion I have worked for right-to-life my entire life and have ten foster sisters.I also know Roe vs Wade is never getting reverses and that practically it would probably cause more problems than it would solve as it would not be enforceable and our efforts are better spent on prevention, education, better adoption, better foster homes, better services for single mothers, waiting periods, etc. I personally think it is a sham or flat out ignorant for people to (not saying you are) to make elections one issue campaigns and especially about an issue that is not even into play.Plus the states can set their own laws.

As for gay marriage I think they have every right to.There is a big difference between freedom of religion and legislating morality and you can't criminalize religious beliefs.If we wanted marriage to remain ours we should never have attached secular rights to it.So those that call ourselves Christians also are Americans and aren't naive nor hypocritical.We don't pretend we are standing behind a religious principle when really protecting our own pocketbook.We call it like we see it and we know just because something is right for us doesn't mean we can force it on someone else.

<quoted text>
I know that in the Bible "bronze" almost always, when it comes to symbolism, represents that which is of earth... regarding feet, the earth is the Lord's footstool (speaks to humility when The Lord walked the earth), so to speak. I forget exactly what rushing waters represents but "power, holiness & sanctification" comes to mind. Water mostly represents sanctification mostly but can represent other things.
<quoted text>
"Right hand" definitely speaks of power & authority... over the "seven stars". Seven in the bible usually represents divinity, perfection or completion. The stars can speak to literal heavenly angels or earthly angels <--- human messengers of the gospel or even another gospel. But here the 7 stars comprises of the pastors (or evANGEListic messengers) of the churches. The two-edged sword out of the mouth represents The Word of God which He speaks (see hebrews 4:12). Even when a child of God speaks The Word of God they have a double-edged sword, so to speak. The sun, well of course, that is self-explanatory but the situation on the mount of transfiguration comes to mind.
Different from what I came up with but there is a lot of good support you give for your points.It may very well represent what you say

<quoted text>
"There He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.
Matt 17:2 or Mark 9:2
<quoted text> Gold speaks to divinity and bronze speaks to earthly... Jesus is both the Son of God and Son of Man... The Bible doesn't necessarily speak about skin color in a negative light unless it puts a spotlight on the prejudices of men and women:
"Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept."
Song of Solomon
It seems that even back then (as it is in many cultures today) that lighter skin was somehow a thing to be cherished. But obviously Solomon didn't seem to mind. Speaking of which, Miriam had a problem when Moses married an Ethiopian and God punished Miriam by making her "whiter" than snow.. with leprosy.
Well, seems the focus was more pale from illness than a commentary on say white versus black. Although if lighter was a punishment than wouldn't lighter skin be worse? I can't say I see the same implication as far as skin color. I am not saying it doesn't date back that lighter skin is somehow considered better. I know even today there are cultural prejudices both ways as far as the lighter or darker the skin color within some communities. I actually spoke to a girl recently that said she is lighter-skinned black because her father was white and other blacks would tease her growing up calling her "white girl" Ironically I didn't even notice a difference as she just looked black to me.Although I have heard it go the other way too and the darker someone is the more someone might get screwed with.

Well I am kind of all over the place here as partly I don't know all the cultural significances but IMO anyway I don't see much in the bible about it.JMO (T) Peace

I guess DR is putting his sheet away by now.

I wonder if all the people who predicted Romney would win and start Armagedon are apologizing while those who predicted Obama's re-election will start Armagedon are prepping their shelters and cleaning their guns.

Maybe they'll wait to see if all the 2012 'Mayan' anihilationists are made fools of first.

Looks like my icon fairy is still stalking away.I wonder who is could be?

BTW, time to start fighting back against the trolls and socks on Topix. I sent and posted this to Topix

Dear Topix

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

41th consecutive stalking post to me by poster known as Dr Shrink from Dundalk, MD to posts I did not make to him

At no point between the time I started counting less than two weeks ago and the 41th straight post did I write this poster

This stalking, harassment, and abuse has been going on for two years on a daily basis. I have made at least 41 complaints since I started to keep track as I reported each incident and in addition some of the other abusive posts.

I was curious as to the legal definitions of cyber-stalking and found this:

"There is no universal legal definition of cyber harassment, but it typically is defined as repeated, unsolicited, threatening behavior by a person or group using mobile or Internet technology with the intent to bother, terrify, intimidate, humiliate, threaten, harass or stalk someone else"

"Victims who cannot file criminal charges against an offender might attempt to file a civil suit, have accounts revoked and have damaging websites shut down."

part 2 of 2

Other sites suggest forwarding samples of the abusive posts to advertisers so they have an idea of not only what their name is being associated with but why they aren't getting more bang for their buck as traffic is inflated by trolls with multiple identities who also drive away potential customers

I am hoping Topix just does the right thing.We have put up with this as a room for two years

I am keeping a file of all his harassing posts and all the reports made against him.. He is stepping up the vulgarity

How is it he is still using the same name and same IP location of Dindalk, MI if he is banned?

Thank you for your attention in this matter"

Just because Topix removed its TOS doesn't mean it is a free-for-all and just because some trolls befriend moderators (who are paid btw) doesn't mean Topix owners will continue to employ people who circumvent what is in their best interest. I know i wouldn't pay someone to advertise my product if I knew they were letting some idiot run off potential customers and that my money was going to get my product out in front of 5-6 regular people and 30 socks.

Meh, I could make fun of him all day and never get tired of it. But its killing the room. The idiot will literally post for weeks at a time to everyone in the one despite not one person responding to him, After two years it just gets boring. Making someone look stupid who has less than zero self-respect is just a pointless endeavor after a while and there is no challenge to it.

But you have given me an idea. Maybe a troll match-making site? Where crazy, gender-confused trolls can stalk love! Just charging monthly fees per profile could make me a millionaire as all I would need is about 20 trolls since each has hundreds of identities!

Or maybe a troll-off? Where trolls compete against each other in their own room. All the attention would be the closest thing to orgasmic I think they will ever experience. These trolls are nuts. But seeing how crazy they really are had made me a little more inclined to consider people in real life could be just like that. One phrase you wull probably hear mt utter to another human being in real life thanks to Topix is "hey buddy, what's with the dress and the eye-twitch?"

American FREEDOM is in SO much trouble now that NEW WORLD ORDER MAN from Kenya has been re-elected,it's not even worth talking about any more. May as well just sit back and let end-time Bible prophecy,and one world government-ism,take it's course. I'm ready for the Lord Jesus Christ to return anyway. I'm SICK and tired of evil and wicked men getting away with their crimes against humanity. Hell's mouth is drooling in anticipation of their wrecked souls.

Yes, I agree, PrabhSingh, to a degree, but I think I have met a few people lately that I can trust. I used to say, In
GOD I trust, and in man(kind) I have little confidence, but I can moderate it a bit now:)

But I will always Trust GOD with all of my Heart and Soul, for HE is!!

Today's Prayer

Dear God, Sometimes I feel like I have poured myself into something or someone, and worked and fought for a cause, only to see no fruits for my labors. It all seemed in vain. But I know that You can work in all of that to fulfill a greater purpose. Please, don't let the labor of my heart and hands be in vain. I pray that all I do would be as unto You and for a good purpose and eternal value. Please bless the works of my heart and hands for Your glory. Please empower me with wisdom and insight through Your Holy Spirit. Please guide me every step and every day, to have a part in reaching this world for You and ministering to those I love. In Jesus' name, amen.

Good morning,brother Barack,and congrats on your victory last night. As you know,most everyone thought you would pardon me from that all-white civil jury verdict when you first took office. I'm sure it just kinda' slipped your mind because you've been so busy,so I just thought your victory last night would be a good time to remind you. I'll be waiting to hear from you. Thanks,yours truly,Orenthal.

In the Light of Truth my Friend, there is no question. And in the same Light as your heart which once listed many with greeting, it was because I saw you added -'PW, who says "the Spirit and the bride say come" - that I added in my post to you...'In a GOOD way''+ Rev 22/17.
An automatic 'known'...

What is not known, is how misunderstood the term - the Bride of Christ is used... as well as abused - like too many things have been twisted out of context, in the name of religion.

Be well my Brother in your mission. And God Bless.
It has been good speaking with you across time-zones here today.
