More excuses being pulled from your pocket to justify your racism and that of your racist friends.
You are right. People aren't stupid. They see right thru your b.s. and that of your racist friends.
You hang onto those excuses and justifications while the rest of the world advances
LOL

It really is interesting to see what lengths you will go to in an attempt to justify your racism.

I hear a lot of news throughout the day. I guess the "news" you are referring to is just not that significant.

Really? That must be why so many here became irrational when I noted that organized religion is a scam perpetrated on the insecure. I asked any of them, including you, to answer the following queries:
1) What happens if God is black?
2) If God created man in his own image and then promised salvation to all who accepted him, what happens to the vast majority who were never exposed to the Bible?
3) Why is your religion the true salvation?
Insults? Yes, I guess a devout Christian would be insulted to learn that other religions established themselves prior. I'm sure they were hurt to learn that Islam is the majority religion in the world. It's too bad that having the facts brought to light is troubling to you.
Not troubling to me.

Again, your grammar is horrible. "poster's"
I understand that his metaphor was faulty and therefore useless as an insult. You obviously don't have issues with things being illogical and incorrect. Good for you.
Let me know when you need me to pay for your therapy. I know you get upset when I note personal experience when providing an opinion here. It troubles you greatly when you learn that I have a much better life than you. I don't mind helping those like you who require societal intervention. Philanthropy, good will, call it what you like - I am only too happy to help you get back on your feet.
YAWN

This must be your daily mantra:

"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me"

I knew you were retired because we have exchanged opinions before. The way you keep complaining about the unemployment rate, I suspected that your family members were finding it hard to get a job. But now that you tell me that they are all working and doing well I question why the unemployment rate is so near and dear to your heart.
You were rooting for the guy who told us that government can't create jobs but now that Romney has lost that race you act as if you believe that government can create jobs. Have you flip flopped on your principles?
We all know that the job market has been tough but people who want to work and earn money have been working and earning money. Many of the people who can draw unemployment, will draw unemployment for as long as they are legally allowed to draw unemployment. Those who are not lazy will only draw unemployment as long as they need to in order to get a job that pays more than unemployment. And there are some who will get another job without applying for unemployment at all. That is human nature and not even the Great Obama can change that my friend.
If you hadn't said "human nature", I wouldn't have propped you.....BTW, nice post.
No one can legislate human nature and those who think they can could be called commies.

<quoted text>I find that interesting. The only one in my family not working is my 10 year old grandson, everyone else is doing great. My feelings for my fellow citizens is breaking my heart. Companies are downsizing, and cutting healthcare. I retired from a BIG plant in Hopewell,Va. and worked there long enough to be grandfathered in for my retirement. But, now these youngsters coming up today will never have the chances that I had,and that hurts me. My generation has failed to leave our children a future as bright as we had. That saddens me to no end. All I want now is for government to get out of the way and let this next generation have a chance to prosper and have a future worth working for. Welfare and being a parasite is no way to live, let people get ahead, and get a job. This country used to make things, now we are a service(MacDonalds) state. If we ever have to go to REAL war(like WW2)we will be in deep shihit. We have no steel or any other industry in this country to build weapons like we did in WW2. Most of the kids today are scared of guns, who will be fit to fight? Our schools teach defeatism, and PC. This scares me, am I wrong?
Great post!

Sorry Chauncey I didn't see your question as I do miss a lot of the posts on Topix. I don't have the time to be here all the time. So let me answer your questions to the best of my ability.
1. Most likely Jesus is the color of most Middle Eastern people.
2. It is Christians responsibility to spread the word of God prior to his return. But as far as what will happen to one that hadn't heard of Jesus I don't know. I do believe that God is fair and has taken that into account.
3. If you refer to Christianity it's because Jesus said so.

"Well, above all the New Testament says so. We read in St John’s Gospel that Jesus said ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me’(14:6),‘I and the Father are one’(10:30),‘He who has seen me has seen the Father’(14:9),‘before Abraham was, I am’(John 8: 58). "

As to being insulted I'm not at all. Because other religions came prior to Christianity doesn't mean anything to me. Nor does it bother me if someone believes in another religion that is their right to do so. Just as it's my right to be a Christian.
Well I hope I answered your questions.

<quoted text>Thank you. It helps to know others out there think of what we are leaving for future generations. These kids didn't do anything to deserve what we are leaving them. GOD, where is honesty and integrity today? What happened to the day when a mans word was his bond? These pols in DC(and everywhere) need to be shot for treason for what they have done to our country. Where are the George Washingtons, Jeffersons, Franklins? I know I'm ranting, but that is the way I feel.
Your Rant is very valid. Well founded too. Props

Inflation is subtle in its progression. Presently we are observing smaller container sizes with less quantity for the same price or slightly more. Laborers income stagnate and or receding to the amount of purchase power. Precisely the results of the price for inequality. Right wing austerity policies have driven the America land of opportunity to the realms of it is all a Myth.
C The Gini Coefficient
Gini is a measurement that is used to identify, mathematically, the inequality of individual nations. A rating of one {1} is considered perfect inequality, as a rating of zero {0} is perfect equality.
Nations such as Germany, Norway and Sweden have a Gini of .3 or less.
South Africa and Latin America have a .5 or above.
USA’s Gini in 1980 was .4 Presently it is at 4.7. This is according to the U.N.’s data. Rendering the USA in the category of nations such as Iran and Turkey.
USA’s inequality may be even worse than what the Gini indicates. In the advanced industrial nations, such as may be found in Europe and Scandinavian, their citizens have Universal Education, Universal Health Care from birth to death and large safety nets for securing the laborer’s income security. Where in as the USA, middle class on down have none of these benefits or a small fraction there of. Increasing the insecurity of their citizens in their jobs, homes, education and health.
Insecurity is manifested and fueled by the inequality factor. Greater the inequality the greater is the demise of that nation’s ability to survive in competition with an advanced industrial opponent. Insecurity will manifest in emotional dysfunctional laborers, quick to rebel. Productivity decreases.
Simply look around to the various nations and observe. Observe those that had a less or NO recessions and grew say during 2000 and 2013 that would be a good indicator they are doing something better than US. Sweden is but one example where you could start.
Lets emulate our forefathers of 1773 and gather up the Tea and cast it out unto the waters of political oblivion come 2014.… Be There!
Inflation is normally subtle but not so much this time. To purchase the same groceries one would get has doubled over a short amount of time.
Didn't our Government promise lower prices on items when they outsourched our jobs? Yes they did but guess what that didn't happen.
