All the country used to think like that, and we prospered.
What is not safe is living among people who think the government should continue its relentless march to control more and more of our lives, under the guise of providing more and more protection and service.
The government is only force. It will take your money, your property, and if necessary, your life.
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

Your fascination with people's azzholes is legendary.

And quite telling; obviously you have some serious latent homosexual tendencies here.

But that's okay... gay marriage is becoming available everywhere these days.

Right on the money, Bongo.

We cannot convince American people of the superiority of freedom any more.

They deserve what they get. And they are gonna' get it.

<quoted text>A common delusion is that government does things better, aka, prisons and health care.(That's the linkage to your comments)

For health care, I can't speak for you, but I gather most doctors would not want to be a government employee. Those doctors who presently are employed by the government make less money, and have less desirable working conditions.

Patients who are forced to avail themselves of government health care don't like it either.

The care Indians get on reservations is not what most Americans aspire to.

The private sector is a far better arbiter of the exchange of money and services. This is irrefutable. There we find incentives for efficiency. In government, the incentives are perverse - they mask inefficiency for the primary goal of power and longevity.

"The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government."

-Milton Friedman
Of course, everybody in the private sector is totally honest and would never cheat to improve profits.

And they don't need to be regulated, either, because they're all just so goddamned honest and ethical.

Yaknow?

I realize this inquiry is a long shot.
a fart is a form of turd gas. after that marsmallow makes the long journey you gut pulls all the good stuff out including that wonderful smell but he gas has to be dealt with. i would suggest you hook a vacuum hose to your anus and the gas will be disposed of.

what does thsi have to do with a atheism being a religio?

"Nobel winner: scientists get it wrong most of time
AP News | 12/06/13 06:42 pm

STOCKHOLM (AP)-- One of this year's Nobel Prize laureates says learning how to handle failure is key to becoming a successful scientist.

American James Rothman, who shared the medicine prize with countryman Randy Schekman and German-American Thomas Sudhof, said Friday that doing scientific research almost always means not getting the desired result.

The difference between "a great scientist and a not-so-lucky one," Rothman, told reporters and students in Stockholm, is the former fails 99 percent of the time, and the latter 99.9 percent......"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirituality
Since atheists don't believe in the supernatural, superstitions, or any out of the "ordinary", they can't define it because they don't believe it exists. It would be beyond their means.
Or something like that.
Yes, you could say it takes a certain religious orientation to define it.
Now, what kind of nonsense are you going to come up with to say you can define you know nothing of? Eh?
The first few words from your link read as follows:

"The term spirituality lacks a definitive definition"

Spirituality is not something that only the religious get to define.

Putting the biggest liars in charge of the biggest crooks always works out the best. If you're a liar or a crook, the only real solution Aero, is to purge ourselves of liars and crooks.
There are many good people with honest concerns like you convey here, unfortunately it seems none of them are in charge of the big corporations or our government.

True - Anyone can define spirituality.

But atheists are excluded from believing in it. An atheist has no choice but to reduce every observed thing to matter. All things spiritual , by definition transcend matter.
