Hey, have you followed the liberal democrat response to the CBO numbers saying Obamacare will cost jobs and allow people to work less?(Never mind their promise it would create jobs)

Chuckie Shumer and Dick Turbin are saying that's a good thing, because people can work fewer hours and still have health insurance, due to the government subsidies.

But wait guys....who pays for those subsidies? PEOPLE WHO WORK AND DON'T GET SUBSIDIES.

More wealth transfer, more people on government aid, more democrat votes.

You realize there's a stopping point for that,...somewhere.

That is correct, and thanks.
I added that if posters like lightbeamrider wanted seasoned skeptics to read their links, they should be to those respected secular sites, as it was overly optimisitic to think that we would be interested enough in theists' claims to visit their apologetics sites and chase down that independent confirmation ourselves.
I see a link to Answers in Genesis, for example, and that's the end of my interest even before I click it, and my guess is that I'm not alone. I've wasted enough time in the past on such resources to be willing to give them more.
The believers posting might not like that, but as I said, reputation and past experiences matter, and the apologetics sites have already expended all of their credibility..
Here's a bit from AiG I think you'll find amusing:

"Arguments that should never be used
Moon dust thickness proves a young moon.
The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics began at the Fall.(If so, how could Adam and Eve have eaten and digested their food that they were told to eat before the Fall?)
NASA computers, in calculating the positions of planets, found a missing day and 40 minutes, proving Joshua’s “long day”(Joshua 10) and Hezekiah’s sundial movement (2 Kings 20).
There are no beneficial mutations.
Darwin recanted on his deathbed.
Woolly mammoths were flash frozen during the Flood catastrophe.
If we evolved from apes, apes shouldn’t exist today.(In an evolutionary worldview, mankind did not evolve from apes but from an apelike ancestor, from which both humans and apes of today supposedly evolved.)
No new species have been produced.
Ron Wyatt has found much archeological proof of the Bible." - Answers in Genesis.

End of discussion.
You should probably think about the liberties you take with others. Yes, I know that you are at war with most of the thread, but not me. I was not part of that. And I don't want to return to that.
But I also will not tolerate being called a liar by you. I am always honest, even when I am mistaken. Please do not project your loathsome Christian values onto me.
Anyone having the cheek to call you a liar is at least delusional.
"Lie" is not a word I use often or lightly, although I did so just yesterday. Some idiot (mighta been RR) tried running the "It's only a theory" argument, despite repeated explanations of the proper use of the word "theory".
When you know better, and proceed to repeat your error, that's not an error any more.

Uh-huh....

What's the difference between real gods and God?

How have you come to your conclusion that God isn't real while saying you don't know anything about real gods?
Shall I call you a liar for claiming otherwise?
You can say what you will.

But remember that just because you say it does not make it true.

No, I don't note that. I note the opposite. It's the Christians that are most immoral. Look at the god you worship. Look at the Christian standard for moral truth. Look at your own behavior in your life and on this thread.
What about my behavior? You got a problem with honesty and integrity? Or is the problem only that you disagree with some of the things I write?
You are likely referring to the immorality in government.
No. I'm referring to the immorality of the American people, the gluttony, thievery, promiscuity, lying, greed ans selfishness.

As Christianity declines in America, all those rise. Go figure.
That correlated with the rise of evangelical Christianity in Congress during the same time period in which religiosity was decreasing in the general population. The government is more immoral than ever, as are the captains of industry that it caters to, but not the people.
HA HA!

You're a wee bit delusional, my man. The people elect most of those in government. Without corrupt people, our government wouldn't be as corrupt.
As the number under the influence of your church continues to diminish and are replaced with people embodying humanist principles, moral behavior among typical citizens will increase. That's always been true.
Right. That's why rapes and murders rise? Home invasions, identity theft, teenage pregnancy, divorce rates, etc ALL rise while Christianity fades.

But hey, you know what goes up? The number of unemployed and hungry.

Imagine that.
And as long as Americans keep electing religious zealots, the American government will continue to decay.
Riii-iiiight.....

Zealots like Hussein and Clinton? naw.

It's unavoidable that, in order to ensure coverage for everybody, there are prices to be paid.

The first priority is to ensure coverage. We all have to bite the bullet.

But if I may change the subject--what do you think of Ted Nugent's characterization of Obama, calling him a chimpanzee?

Has Ted been getting advice from the Redneck?

Incorrect.

You made a vow to your spouse and you signed a contract with the state you live in.

Religion plays no part in the act of being married.
Where your religion plays a part is in the ceremony you choose to have performed.

Nope.

At it's most basic and ancient essence, marriage was an exchange of property.

Marriage is not required for procreation and procreation is not required for marriage.

The modern purpose of marriage is to create a legal family unit where one does not already exist. For this purpose all marriages between non-related adults should be treated equal.

Ensure coverage?

There are 30 million uninsured.

The CBO says after 10 years of Obamacare, there will be...31 million uninsured.

50% of those presently uninsured are uninsured by choice.

The result is coverage is not provided for everyone, half of those added to coverage did not want it, and the cost to those paying for coverage skyrockets.

Only a liberal could devise such an absurd, transparent wealth transfer.

The language of Obamacare, which is now statute, specifies when the mandates begin. It is restrictive language, not permissive language. It is written as "MUST", not "MAY".

Obama changed that. How does that square with your Constitution and Separation of Powers? Are you aware that the President cannot legislate law?

Do you recall when the government shutdown over de-funding or delaying Obamacare, Obama and all the dems shouted, "IT'S THE LAW OF THE LAND !!!"

Guess it wasn't, huh?

You Obama voters need to apologize and make restitution.

My health insurance went up $700 a month because of ACA. Are you going to start sending me a check each month, or what?
