I find it depressing that someone's beliefs can lead them to such a dismal world view.
Yes, there is a lot of misery in this world but there is much more beauty and wonder. Even as I ponder my own end it is the decades of wonderful memories that surround me, not the few years of utter hell, that comfort me and long for my life to never end. There is still another lifetime's worth of things to do and marvel at!
IMHO, any afterlife described by any religion would be "Hell".
Are you dying, G_O_D?

I know, we all are but is there something wrong presently?

Controversies hurting Obama? Has GOP overreacted?
politicalmugshot
Posted by
CNN Political Unit

Washington (CNN)– President Barack Obama comes out of what was arguably the worst week of his presidency with his approval rating holding steady, according to a new national poll.

But a CNN/ORC International survey released Sunday morning also indicates that congressional Republicans are not overplaying their hand when it comes to their reaction to the three controversies that have consumed the nation's capital over the past week and a half. And the poll finds that a majority of Americans take all three issues seriously.

According to the survey, which was conducted Friday and Saturday, 53% of Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing, with 45% saying they disapprove. The president's approval rating was at 51% in CNN's last poll, which was conducted in early April.

"That two-point difference is well within the poll's sampling error, so it is a mistake to characterize it as a gain for the president," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Nonetheless, an approval rating that has not dropped and remains over 50% will probably be taken as good news by Democrats after the events of the last week."

The CNN poll is in-line with Gallup, which also indicated a very slight rise in Obama's approval rating over the same time period. And Gallup's daily tracking poll also indicated a slight upward movement of Obama's approval rating over the past week. But as with the CNN poll, it was within that survey's sampling error.

More than seven in 10 in the CNN poll say that the targeting by the Internal Revenue Service of tea party and other conservative groups that were applying for tax exempt status was unacceptable. While the White House and both parties in Congress are criticizing the IRS actions, congressional Republicans are depicting the controversy as a case of the federal government gone wild.

Part Two:

But more than six in 10 say that the president's statements about the IRS scandal are completely or mostly true, with 35% not agreeing with Obama's characterizations. And 55% say that IRS acted on its own, with 37% saying that White House ordered the IRS to target tea party and other conservative groups.

Only 42% of the public is satisfied with how the Obama administration has handled the September attack in Benghazi, Libya, which left the U.S ambassador to that country and three other Americans dead. Fifty-three percent say they are dissatisfied. But those numbers are virtually unchanged from November.

Republicans have ripped the administration for not providing adequate security for the Benghazi mission, botching the response to it, and misleading the public for political gain with the attack coming less than two months before last November's presidential election.

According to the poll, 44% say statements made by the Obama administration soon after the attack were an attempt to intentionally mislead the public. Half of those questioned say those statements reflected what the Obama administration believed, at the time, had occurred.

But 59% now say that the U.S government could have prevented the attack in Benghazi, up 11 points from last November. And only 37% say that congressional Republicans are overreacting in their handling of the matter, with 59% saying they've reacted appropriately.

It's the same story on the IRS controversy, with 54% saying the GOP in Congress has not overplayed its hand.

The White House has also been criticized by Congress for the Justice Department's secret collection of phone records from the Associated Press as part of a government investigation into classified leaks. According to the poll, 52% say the Justice Department's actions were unacceptable, with 43% saying they disagree.

Americans appear to be taking all three controversies very seriously, with 55% saying the IRS and Benghazi matters are very important to the nation and 53% saying the same thing about the AP case.

"More Republicans than Democrats or Independents say these three issues are very important to the nation, but even among Democrats, nearly half say the matters are very serious," Holland adds.

Are Americans’ trust in the government shaken?

Only 43% say they have a great deal or some confidence in the people who run the federal government. But 56% say they have a great deal or some confidence in the system of government.

The CNN poll was conducted by ORC International between May 17-18, with 923 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey's sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.

3 This first understand, that there shall come in the last days, mockers, which will walk after their lusts, 4 And say, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the Fathers died, all things continue alike from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly know not, that the heavens were of old, and the earth that was of the water, and by the water, by the word of God. 6 Wherefore the world that then was, perished, overflowed with the water. 7 But the heavens and earth, which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire against the day of condemnation, and of the destruction of ungodly men. 8 Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord of that promise is not slack (as some men count slackness) but is patient toward us, and would have no man to perish, but would all men to come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall be burnt up.

'Every thinking person fears nuclear war, and every technological nation, plans for it. Everyone knows it's madness, and every country has ...an excuse. There's a dreary chain of causality. The German's were working on the bomb at the beginning of World War 11, so the Americans had to make one first. If the Americans had one, the Russians had to have one, then the British, French, the Chinese, the Indians, and the Pakistanis. Many nations collected these weapons; they're easy to make. You can steal fissionable material for nuclear reactors. Nuclear weapons have almost become a home hand-craft home industry.'(Quote) Dr Carl Sagan

Talk to a smoker that can't quit
I have quit smoking before and quit opiates. It is not even a contest. But then again, you didn't even know opiates were physically addictive. Yet you did know cigarettes were. But you were not getting paid to get people to smoke so that's probably why you knew. You were however making good money getting people hooked on opiates. Thats probably why you never bothered to find out. If that is even true. It is hard to believe you were this bad of a doctor but it is the one thing about you I actually believe might be the truth. You are every bit as ignorant about addiction as you appear, despite writing thousands of scripts for addictive medications

Do you take any responsibility for your choices?
My choice to follow the instructions of my doctor? If i knew more doctors like you before hand I would feel more responsible. As it is, I never suspected going in that the prescription he prescribed to me to take daily was going to lead to the terrible addiction it did. I didn't even know i was addicted until 2 years into taking the medication when I ran out early.

But this might be the thing in real life you are actually accomplishing some good with. Hopefully people can get a first-hand look at how the mind of a pimp doctor works and how they just write script after addictive script and wash their hands of the whole deal and just keep cashing their checks

If I made it up, I finished making up my story last February, right here on this thread:
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
That was a foolish way to present your challenge. Couldn't you see that if you were wrong, and that if I had answered this question already, which should have seemed overwhelmingly likely to you, that you would be made a fool of again? Of course you didn't.
Do you think that others can't discern if I am telling the truth or not? Why can't you? You keep coming at me as if I am a liar that spins his own reality, and you keep getting burned.
Look at my definition of intelligence in the last post again.
Like I said,I didn't know if you were lying or not. I actually was hoping you were as post after post it just kept becoming more clear what a terrible doctor you were. Call it wishful thinking on my part that a known bigot and liar was actually lying the one time it would be for the best. Unfortunately, it would appear you actually were a doctor. Or at least you have stuck to the same story. Your poor patients. At least you are retired now

Tell me, NOW do you realize prolonged opiate use leads to physical addiction that is measured by the amount of physical withdrawal? You know, like how you know cigarettes are physically addictive?

I mean I know it doesn't do your patients any good that years after retiring you actually learned something about the addictive medications you were prescribing, but for some reason it still just seems lie something you should know. Maybe if you were a better person you might even do something to make amends for writing so many addictive scripts with no clue of the damage you were causing as you blamed your patients for being mentally weak because they became physically addicted to a drug you kept prescribing

Although I am sure the odds are about 1000 to 1 you will go to your grave convinced your hands are clean. It is why you make such a good bigot. A person has to be completely self-blind and in denial top believe the lies he tells himself. Although now I actually think it was a good idea you didn't take the Hippocratic oath. What a joke that would have been huh?

This should have been your oath:

"I doctor Taint, promise to profit off my patients first and foremost. I will not be concerned with their overall well being and will consider them a nuisance. I will do just enough to protect myself legally and give no more than the minimum effort require by law. I will remain willfully ignorant to the dangerous side-effects of medication I prescribe so long as the pharmaceutical companies grease my palms. In any instance where my "care" has resulted in harm, I will blame the patient for being weak or not following my instructions, even if he did. Lastly I will do my best to make sure my ignorance always matches my arrogance. My motto shall be, "tell it to my checkbook"

Father Divine! Who claimed to be God ?

I realize that I come into your world at 'the end' of everything, only to find the fields of truth flooded with false...'just about everything'!

Cults go under The bride of Christ... and from there just go down the scale... to false christmas and christs.... right thru to false peace movements. If it were not for God's Truth, the truth for which I came into this world for the sake of peace, to fulfill my Father in heaven's words, there would be no place to turn, let alone begin. Being as small as I am it might be a place to start, and just do as I always have... carry on in the face of truth until the light shines brightly enough for anyone to see the light of day is truly the Light of God. That it is really recognized that a church building is not required when our bodies are the living temple - thus eliminating all need for the money lords who build bigger and better growing richer and fatter off their flocks as 'false shepherds'- any wonder there is a false perception of what truth is.

Deception is more than alive and well and living on plant earth... it's rife! It's a cancer eating out the hearts and minds of earthlings... and I like this earth! It has helped me from the very beginning to get to know places and peoples, their hopes and dreams, their realities, and none have judged me outside of the churches who call themselves godly, are not!

Its quite simple. Do as she says, not as she does. Many of her words are right on. But the second she treats you, me, LAWEST or anyone that way those words no longer have any value. Heck most days I log on here within a min. someone is speaking on homosexuality. I pass on it often as any of the regs. know my story, my wifes story. But becasue of what the Lord has done we are smeared nonstop for hating homosexuals. My family member that is in this bondage, I've never once treated him the way some of the posters treat Christians in this forum everyday. And so it goes.
Well therein lies the biggest irony. They get on their high horse about how Christians aren't living up to their supposed values and it turns out some of them are the most hateful bigots around

Even when the words on their face have merit, they have no value because they are simply being said to look good. That's the part that I don't like. Someone wants to mix it up, it isn't like i am gonna say much about it. But these deceitful facades some of them put on trying to manipulate emotion for support is just funny to watch.

That by itself would be funny. But it gets so much better. You actually are so deluded you think your posts on topix mean something. You have written your own constitution and made up your own demographic and say funny stuff like in this post here!

You are an irrelevant nobody whose opinion meant nothing when he was in the 5% group of the United States. And now that you are in Mexico, you managed to find away to make it mean less than nothing!

But if it helps you sleep at night tell yourself what a great battle you are waging against Christians spanning two countries! Bigots across the world...UNITE. LOL

Matthew 24: 21-26
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
