It's not about "OIL", it's about protecting the big Companies!
Bush was all about protecting all his buddies who own billion dollar industries overseas. Never mind that our soldiers were being killed so these companies can safely stay there and make their money at our expense.
He bled us dry for all the wrong reasons.

Did they stop teaching English in London?

BTW, those people that "hated" President Bush so much, took the journalist outside and beat the daylights out of al-Zaidi for embarrassing the Iraqi people. Prime Minister Maliki tried to protect President Bush from al-Zaidi's shoes. al-Zaidi's fellow journalists immediately apologized to the President for the incident, and the Iraqi judicial system sentenced al-Zaidi to years in prison, of which he actually served nine months.

And yes, you are confused.

I suppose that's why there are so many more people that are dependent on government programs today... because we're cutting their benefits? Hmmmmm.

HE certainly does - and reducing the number of people on public assistance by cutting the funds, and changing eligibility requirements, rather than addressing the causes of need, is a stopgap. Not a solution. The end result will be more starving children. I'm sure Jesus is very proud.

What a surprise. Yet another person that out of one side of her mouth says that Jesus is a farce and like most will use Him when it suits them. Have you put your money where your mouth is yet? Again here are a few places to start.

So how about that Rolling Stones cover. I know, by saying something I prove the stunt worked. Good on Cvs drugs for saying they will not have it. They just moved ahead of Walgreens for me.

I didn't make $4 million last year, but somehow I managed to donate more to charitable organizations, of my choice, than VP Joe Biden.

I prefer to give time, attention, and FOOD, rather than cash, to those in need. That way, I know my help is going where I want it to go, rather than to CEO salaries.

Rather than depending on a government that is going broke for handouts to feed, clothe and house your family, I think getting a job(s) would be far more helpful towards taking care of one's children and responsibilities. That, and closing one's legs if they can't afford to have those children. Chosing a responsible person with good work ethics to marry would go a long way towards giving those children a good home life too.

Is asking people to accept personal responsibility for their actions really being unreasonable?

I know what you mean there. Some of those administrative costs, including officer salaries, are outrageous. We make sure that most of our donations are going to those we intend to support, not to inflated administration fees.

Well that is good indeed. So I'll say I'm sorry. We don't agree on issues of faith but many of the people that come in at my office don't either. We are thankful for all the help we get.

Update: Walgreens is now saying they won't sell this trash either. I have never in my life burned a book or any written word. But if I did... But no. Thank God we live in a place where the most vile trash can be printed and that government (at least of now) says nothing. Parts of the government do seem to be working to that end.

No apology necessary - but certainly yours is accepted. I offer my own, for my frustration with issues of faith, on which we do differ. I recognize your sincerity.

I'm thankful to be able to help someone other than myself - paying it forward is very uplifting.

'Pay it forward'. A great concept that is almost never used. When I find myself in need, I go to the foodbank, but I don't wait in line. I volunteer, spend the day filling bags of food, and helping where I'm needed. Beats just sitting there.
