If you really know God exists and you really know God, and then blaspheme against Him, perhaps you may be punished. But right now no one has universal proof so it's all based on belief. The worst thing that blasphemy could amount to, is the sin of deliberately making claims about something that you know you have little knowledge off.

It's complicated. Sometimes one may think one knows something and is speaking the truth and hence talk, but in reality one doesn't know and is not speaking the truth. And then are other implications, such as deliberately causing unrest through blasphemy.

If there is a God, He would know the intentions behind your blasphemy, and judge accordingly.

The above is quite interesting, but I'm not familiar with the situation. Bush was impeached in 2006? Pelosi replaced someone? What constitutional remedies are there for bad presidents - and how did Bush circumvent them?
No, Bush was never impeached.

In 2006, the Republicans had the White House, and majorities in both houses of Congress. The war in Iraq was extremely unpopular and the left was anxious to begin impeachment proceedings.

There was what is called a midterm election - in the middle of Bush's second term. As a result, the Democrats, who had been more or less loathed, swept the elections and recaptured both houses:

"The election resulted in a sweeping victory for the Democratic Party which captured the House of Representatives, the Senate, and a majority of governorships and state legislatures from the Republican Party." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_el...

It was considered a mandate to Congress to unfund Bush's cruel and illegal war, and to impeach him.

Nancy Pelosi, a representative from California, became the Speaker of the House. Many of us were anxious to see Bush impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors such as his illegal war of aggression, flouting the Geneva Conventions, outing a CIA operative, and later, his felonious wiretaps http://tinyurl.com/78cochx .

Impeachment is the remedy the framers of the Constitution gave the country for cases just like this one - a rogue president. Bush actually referred to the Constitution as "just a goddamned piece of paper" :

"It is the business of the Congress to prevent the president from doing more damage than he's already done to the people, interests, health, well-being, safety, good name and reputation of the United States -- to cauterize the wound and stem the flows of money, stupidity and blood." -- Lewis Lapham, March 2006, quoted by David Corn http://www.iraqtimeline.com/impeach.html

Many were also interested in revenge for the way the Republicans badgered Clinton almost from day one with special prosecutors looking for something to impeach him over. They flitted from Whitewater to Paula Jones when they couldn't manufacture a scandal there, and then to Monica Lewinski when they couldn't trump up any charges there either, caught Clinton in a lie about legal, consensual sex, and impeached him.

I for one was was furious, and had actually said at that time, whoever the next Republican president is that the Democrats can badger and humiliate should get a special prosecutor assigned to him even before taking office just to show that you cannot do that and get away with it. So, with the sweeping victory by the opposition, a new Congress, and a mandate to end the war and the Bush presidency, the stage was set.

Then Pelosi dropped the bomb - impeachment was "off the table" - not even a consideration. Next, the Democrats passed Bush's war budget, giving him every nickel he wanted, and even let him escalate the war, the so called "surge" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_War_troop_s... .

It was as if nothing had happened. The government was the same. The policies were the same. It was apparent at that point, if not sooner, that the parties were really one, that liberal interests in particular were not represented by that government, and that the American people had no say over important matters any more - the death throes of American democracy.

Incidentally, in case you don't know, an impeachment is merely an indictment of a president, not a conviction. It's the filing of formal charges by the House of Representatives, and leads to a trial, in this case, by the Senate. What Pelosi said in effect was that the president was above the law.

I should amplify - What Pelosi said in effect was that the REPUBLICAN president was above the law, and that the will of the voters was irrelevant.

One fancy goldfish. Well filtered 40 gallon tank. Never had a problem mixing goldfish and others before. First time I had guppies and platys, though. Maybe a ph tolerance thing.

Good tip to consider, thank you.

I'm betting he's never read Marx in his entire life. He wouldn't allow himself to. I *have* read Marx's "Communist Manifesto," so I speak from a position of knowledge: Marx was an asshole. The only thing he ever said that made sense was that religion is the opiate of the masses.
One of my profs told me that Engels actually wrote most of it. I'm not sure if that is true. She also really didn't like Marx as a person.

His theory has been greatly worked upon and is still used in the social sciences - restructured as "societal inequalities" and "social hierarchies" it is used in bio-cultural anthropology and is an evolutionary theory.

Yup.
It's not Stregheria Wicca, it's just Stregheria. Wicca is a similar but separate belief system, developed by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s or thereabouts, and which borrows heavily from Stregheria (or so it seems to me, anyway); the original Stregheria dates back to around the time of the Etruscans.
<quoted text>
Belief in an afterlife dates back more than 40,000 years; there are burial sites at least that old, containing bodies and their possessions that, apparently, might be needed in the next life.
Neanderthal used to bury their dead. They've been found buried with flower petals covering the body. One was found with a rose quartz axe head - totally useless for chopping, it would shatter.

I don't have dates on the burials offhand, but they evolved around 400-300kya.

No. SCOTUS is one of three branches assigned protecting it - the one you don't vote for. Democracy there is best of nine. Didn't you know that? Did you think that those judges had to ask you what you thought for America to be considered a form of democracy. If so, you need some basic American government and civics education.
You are a complete moron.

For a democracy, laws are "legislated". The citizens elect their "legislators". They are susceptible to the "will of the people".

The judicial branch is not a legislative branch. They are not susceptible to the will of the people. They are not allowed by the democratic principles to legislate.

When they change the Constitution, they legislate. They rule us without consent of the people.

You left here for Mexico for reasons based on a totally idiotic misunderstanding of government and politics. It was smart to protect your savings from the liberal democrats who are constantly trying to confiscate it. The conservative republicans can only contain them, and preserve your cash for you to a limited extent.

And you are stupid for thinking Bush committed any impeachable offense.

Do you also think he had demolition explosives planted and blew up the world trade center on 911?

You must get your political insight from Rosie O'Donnel and fatass Michael Moore.

The closest thing Bush did to an impeachable offense was when he let those two border guards go to prison for shooting the wetback in his beaner ass while he was smuggling dope from your new homeland.

If people like you ever get any real political power, this nation is finished. We have to defeat your side at any cost. ANY COST! You are a more dangerous enemy than any foreign nation.

Good god! So the American ... democratic and legal process was entirely hijacked?!? That's f*cking crazy?

Why wasn't Bush treated like Nixon? Wasn't the impeachment process started?

These kinds of incidents are how the Roman empire began to collapse - it's anything but good. Do you believe the American public have become domesticated?

Goldfish piss pretty nasty stuff - most especially the feeder goldfish (sorry, I mistakenly wrote "fancy" before). Anyways, you'd notice if the water becomes cloudy. The thing is, guppies are very hardy - they can live in brackish all the way to fresh water and a lot of different temperatures, and they breed like crazy. They're one of the few fishes that give live birth. So it could just be that fish, too.

Stupid.

As dumb a cluck as Pelosi is, she was smarter than you. She knew there was nothing impeachable there.

Bush caused you to end up with your communists in control of both houses and a communist President. You had Prosecuter Fitzgerald setting perjury traps for Libby, Cheney, and Rove, when he knew the leaker, which was the point of his investigation, before he even started.

Hell, looks like that would be good enough for you. But hell no, you had your little impeachment fantasy. If Pelosi and the Dims had any hope that an impeachable offense were provable, they would have plunged ahead tooth and claw.

If this had anything to do with your expatriation, you have been a fool.

Communist? Really??? I mean, reeeaaaalllly?

Communism is Cuba - confiscating all private businesses and making them state run. They make better rum than anyone else in the world because of this.

So......nope. Obama is not even close to socialist. Canada is partly socialist - some of Canadian services are run by the government, health care being one. When Canada has followed American lead, such as privatizing electricity, it's caused massive increase in prices, corruption, price monopolies and like effect. There are services that are better run by government, even with the extra cost b/c of laziness.
