Valley goes green
Calhoun, GE are River City’s trailblazers in renewable energy jobs, training

The Decatur plant received $6.5 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for machinery and equipment to produce energy-efficient refrigerators locally, said GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman. In addition to the $43 million investment, the company invested $16 million to transition to the new product insulation process, Freeman said.

There IS a difference in "a" and "the" ...

What does it mean that Jesus is God's only begotten son?

Answer: The phrase “only begotten Son” occurs in John 3:16, which reads in the King James Version as, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The phrase "only begotten" translates the Greek word monogenes. This word is variously translated into English as "only," "one and only," and "only begotten."

It's this last phrase ("only begotten" used in the KJV, NASB and the NKJV) that causes problems. False teachers have latched onto this phrase to try to prove their false teaching that Jesus Christ isn't God; i.e., that Jesus isn't equal in essence to God as the Second Person of the Trinity. They see the word "begotten" and say that Jesus is a created being because only someone who had a beginning in time can be "begotten." What this fails to note is that "begotten" is an English translation of a Greek word. As such, we have to look at the original meaning of the Greek word, not transfer English meanings into the text.

The second definition is "pertaining to being the only one of its kind or class, unique in kind."

and he uses this word to highlight Jesus as uniquely God's Son—sharing the same divine nature as God—as opposed to believers who are God's sons and daughters through faith.

The bottom line is that terms such as "Father" and "Son," that are descriptive of God and Jesus, are human terms used to help us understand the relationship between the different Persons of the Trinity. If you can understand the relationship between a human father and a human son, then you can understand, in part, the relationship between the First and Second Persons of the Trinity. The analogy breaks down if you try to take it too far and teach, as some Christian cults (such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses), that Jesus was literally "begotten" as in “produced” or “created” by God the Father.

I think you should have said almost 1 in 5 instead of "at least 1 in 5" because unless I'm mistaken 1 in 5 is 20% not 17%.

New Navy Hospital in San Diego Sign of the Changing Times
The project became a reality when, in 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which is funding the hospital's construction. The new Naval Hospital is the largest American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project within the Department of the Navy, with a $455 million contract.

iPads: More Than Just Toys For the Rich, But Not Fully Utilized Yet

What makes iPads useful is the ability to connect to a good wireless internet source, too. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 dedicated a lot of federal resources to focus on the “digital divide” and increasing capacity for broadband for communities in need. It is arguable that we are anywhere near where we need to be; broadband providers are less competitive (meaning higher costs in a capitalist model) and US policy for broadband may be too hands-off, as evidenced in the lawsuit where Comcast declared the FCC “had no authority” to regulate their business practices.

When Jesus referred to us as “sheep,”

He was not speaking in affectionate terms.

In truth, sheep rank among the dumbest animals in creation.

A stray sheep, still within earshot of the herd, becomes disoriented, confused, frightened, and incapable of finding its way back to the flock.

Unable to ward off hungry predators, the stray is perhaps the most helpless of all creatures. Entire herds of sheep are known to have drowned during times of flash flooding even in sight of easily accessible higher ground.

Like it or not, when Jesus called us His sheep, He was saying that without a shepherd, we are helpless.

Just like obamas sheeple are helpless.

According to the author who rebutted your story, not true. Of course you didn't read the rebuttal so you couldn't possibly know that. How can I ay that? Well, the rebuttal came from Ezra Klein at the Washington Post, not one of the sources you usually find interesting, and the very first sentence reads:

QUOTE: Ezra Klein

"I don’t agree with my colleague Bob Woodward, who says the Obama administration is “moving the goalposts” when they insist on a sequester replacement that includes revenues."

Fine by me.
Who ran?

Origins

The biblical book of Genesis describes a city named Sodom as being wicked. God has promised to destroy four Canaanite cities, and Abraham has bartered him down to destroying them only if there are less then ten good people in all of Sodom. Among the specific acts of wickedness mentioned is the story of Lot.
Genesis 19 describes an event at the city of Sodom in which Lot accepts messengers of God into his home as guests. Villagers come to the house and demand the messengers be sent out to be raped. Lot, not wishing to violate the strict Middle-Eastern traditions of "guesting", offers up his virgin daughters instead.(The daughter's opinions are not reported.) At this point, the men break in and the angels kill them, and reward Lot (but not his wife) for his hospitality. This eventually leads to incest, but that is not covered here.
In Ezekiel 16:49, the sin of Sodom is mentioned, but it is not sexual in nature, e.g. the aforementioned incest. "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy."

Interpretations

There are many interpretations to the story of Sodom. Among them are:

Male anal sex is wrong

Homosexuality is wrong

Rape of men by men is wrong, or at least worse than rape of women by men.

Violating "guesting" traditions is wrong

Offering up your daughters for gang rape is, if not exactly great, better than letting your guests be "sodomized"

God rewards those who uphold the safety of guests in their house.

Sodomy in law

Sodomy as a sexual term goes back almost 1000 years. Sodomy was seen as a viable punishment in Roman law, and in the early Republic, forcible sodomy was an appropriate retaliation against a trespasser by a paterfamilias. Modern law is obviously slightly, um, different.
In American law, "sodomy" is any sexual act other than penile-vaginal intercourse. The Texas statute overturned by Lawrence v. Texas prohibited "sodomy", and John Geddes Lawrence was convicted at the trial level under this broad definition. Sodomy is still a criminal activity in many states, which is to say, statutes exist on the books that state that sodomy is a crime. However, laws against conduct of sodomy are per se unconstitutional, in the wake of *Lawrence v. Texas: fundamental due process protections inhere to prevent the state from regulating private sexual conduct on the basis of mere morality.(An exception is made for cases in which sodomy is an aggravating factor in another crime, such as rape, however.)

Other than the fact that I think you are insane (and you keep changing the subject) I have one little problem with what you've posted here....

"Rape of men by men is wrong, or at least worse than rape of women by men."

Rape of men by men is worse than rape of women by men?

Are you fkng serious.

Rape is rape and it's wrong period.

You really are a disgusting human being and a complete waste of time.

Meanwhile the teabaggers are defending the scum that these people exposed.

"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws" — Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

"The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board as ministers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is Private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money" -- Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., 1923

"The Federal Reserve banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen.

Ron Paul - END the Fed.
JFK - END the Fed.

The bill (which can be read Here) passed easily with a 327-98 turnout. This is a HUGE first step in politically exposing, and thus, fazing out of the Federal Reserve System. This also shows that maybe Ron Paul was right after all when he spoke of bringing people together under freedom, as this was a bipartisan effort to make the Federal Reserve System fully transparent. Next up is the Senate, so make sure not to take your foot off the gas. Please take the time to urge your senators to pass this when the time comes to vote this through the senate! Remind them that they swore an oath to the constitution, that grants
them the authority under Article 1 Section 8 to coin and regulate money. That they have this power as representatives of us, and not a private elite organization.

http://www.endthefed2012.com/ron-pauls-audit-...

On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress. We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superceded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid.

The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy

Why Nixon Resigned Instead Of Facing Impeachment

Nixon resigned over an obstruction of justice charge (with some of the legal groundwork prepared by a young Hillary Rodham). Nixon resigned gracefully, the media declared the incident over and Gerald Ford declared that it was time to "put the whole affair behind us and move forward". This was done because the last thing anyone wanted in Washington D.C. was an impeachment trial. Even Nixon's worst enemies dared not allow it. The reasoning was simple. Sooner or later, someone would ask the following question.
