Obama wants you to pledge loyalty to him tomorrow

It's a technicality, not a glaring inaccuracy. My point is not "automatic " vs "semi-automat ic". It's guns that are not designed for self-defense or hunting, but guns designed for killing large numbers of human beings at one time quickly and easily. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for an individual to own such a thing.  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #1222)

No, your prophecies of doom will not come true simply because you say so. Like all conservatives, you are afraid of ANY change. You look at the past with nostalgia, and look at the future with paranoiaBy teaching me computer programming, graphic design, media production and corporate trainingWrong again- I don't do any drugs- Not even drinking or smoking. You just LOVE stereotypes, don't you? They prevent you from actually discussing issuesHow about the Iran-contra scandal, where the Regan administration bypassed the direct orders of congress to sell American weapons to one of our enemies, inorder to fund a terrorist group in another nation? How about the "Contract against America", who's goal it was to make the United States into a Fundamentalist Theocracy, just like that afore-mentioned enemy? There is absolutely NO "power grab" in this administration- none. Just a president who is trying to repair the damage done to this country by the GOP- most of which the GOP even acknowledges they causedPoint 1.) Grow up and try to have an intelegent conversation like an adult. Adults spell people's names correctly. Children play name games. 2.) The "same game" is called fixing the problems caused by deregulation and trickle-down economics. That "game" is the reason why this country has survived as long as it hasNo, his "entire ideology" is fixing the crap the GOP left. All the rest is simply propaganda that right-wing pundits fed you, and you swallowed whole. Next, claim he is a Muslim, not a christianYou have obviously never read the constitution. Did you read where I explained the diference between an economic system and a political one? The constitution does NOT define our economic systemThere is no such thing as "tit for tat". The GOP is nothing but radical buddies. It's filled with rich, fat, old white men who stuff their pockets at the expense of everyone else. The whole Bush administration should be under arrest for treason. ALL you can do is point out people who were rebellious in their youth, or have ideas that YOU don't like. You would post people you think are abhorrent, and I don't. I would post people who make "Mr Burns" from the Simpsons look like Mother Terresa, and you would think they are fine upstanding citizensPassed on what? where? Huh? Hello? Anyone there?  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #408)

Into the ground? Oh yeah- conservative paranoia. Now tell me that Obama will summon deamons to eat our livers. You DO know what drove our country into the ground, right? And that it was driven into the ground BEFORE Obama took office- before he even WON the election? It was the GOP. Only a moron would blame Obama for this disaster. It's like blaming the doctor because you have cancerEmotion-base d? And you think republicans like Bill ORiley, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, are pillars of logic and reasoning? That these people are NOT emotional? At least Maher and Franken are comedians- they are funny on purpose. When republican pundits are funny, it's because we are laughing AT them, not WITH them.  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #407)

That's good- and thank a liberal for itNo one is trying to take that away- just to provide alternatives for those who can't. You can always spend your money on anything you wantWell, that's more of a private sector problem- partially based on the fact that we don't have enough qualified Americans for technology jobs, because the school system in the US is crap when it comes to math and scienceYou better get off that computer then, and stop using any technology. Even if you buy something assembled by an American company, the parts for it came from overseas. America is just not in the technology manufacturing business anymore. You have very few options for clothing too- "Made in the USA" actually means "Assembled in GuamDoes that include nuclear bombs? Gee, I want to own a replica of "fat man" and "little boy". I agree that people should have the right to have a handgun for self defense, and rural people can have a hunting gun, but the NRA nuts are out of their gourd if they think they should be allowed to have automatic weapons. Individual human beings should not posses weapons of mass destructionThat's an exercise in futility. It's best to just have them file the paperwork while they are hereThat would be every politician, on both sides of the isle. What one person considers fat another considers a necessary projectAhh.. so you bought into right-wing propaganda. I'm not surprised. Everything you were told about Acorn is a lie- a flat-out lie. Wipe the slate, and go to Google and learn the truth from OBJECTIVE news sources. While you are at it, learn about the cases of REAL voter fraud- done by RepublicansI'm sure you would do the same sign to anyone who wants to educate you ABOUT your stand too.  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #1187)

Right back at ca- your example is irrelevant, because the Republican party of Lincoln is nothing like the modern Republican party. They are the same in name only. This is not a HISTORY discussion. When most people discuss POLITICS, on a POLITICS site, the topic is the 20th and 21st centuries. Now, go over to a technology website and discuss the steam engine.  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #206)

First off, no, you don't understand the Bible. The point is that NO ONE can judge because ALL HUMANS are sinners. Do you recall the phrase "he is without sin shall cast the first stone?" It is only God's position to judge, not Holier Then Thou Pharisees like yourself. and second point- again, you don't know what the Bible says, you just parrot what others have told you: there is absolutely no place in the Bible that condemns homosexuality beyond simple fornication. And before you post a passage, pay attention: A man raping another man (or an angel) is NOT homosexuality, just like a man raping a woman is not heterosexuality. A man molesting a little boy is NOT homosexuality, just like a man molesting a little girl is not heterosexuality. A man hiring a male prostitute is NOT homosexuality, just like a man hiring a female prostitute is not heterosexuality. An orgy is NOT homosexuality, just like a orgy is not heterosexuality. In each of those circumstances, there is an OBVIOUS sin- rape, child molestation, prostitution, etc, NOT homosexuality itself. Now, show me any passage that condemns a long-term monogamous consenting relationship between two adults of the same sex. And be prepared to show the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic words- because I will.  (Mar 24, 2009 | post #2556)

You did not agree with my own words stating what my own position was? DO you realize that your post showed that you did not even read my post at allYes, I'm against baking in Gym class. Are you FOR baking in Gym classAgain, you did not read what I wrote. I said, rather clearly and plainly, that the simple fact of disagreement is NOT AN ISSUE. It's about: 1.) Time and place for the disagreement- such as that ONLY SCIENCE should be taught in a science class. 2.) When the disagreement turns into LEGISLATION, where you force others to live by your moral codesThis is what is called a "Strawman ". That is when you completely make up an argument, assign it to an opponent, and then say how bad it is. NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING YOU JUST WROTE. NO ONE wants to take "god" out of and off of everything. Again, it's that everything has a PLACE, and the place or God is your church, your home, your heart, and your life. The place for your religion is NOT in public secular institutions. You don't try on clothing in the middle of a restaurant, and then complain if you can't. You don't take a shower in a public fountain. YOU DON'T BAKE A CAKE IN GYM CLASS. And did you even notice where I said that creationism SHOULD be taught in Humanities classes, as part of a comparative religion program? Would you like it if "Hare Krishna, avatar of Lord Vishnu" was written on the money, and was written above courthouses, and was chanted in the public schools? If it was there, would you want it removed? Would the reason be because you are threatened by the great truth in the words of lord Vishnu, so you seek to silence it? Or would it just be that you don't want your kids being taught Hinduism, or for your federal government to actively use your tax money to support Hinduism? And again, since you did not answer the question- do you think "flat earth theory" should be taught in science class, as equally valid to "round earth theory"? Do you want the Hindu creation myths being taught to your kids as being just as possible as any other concept of creation?  (Mar 24, 2009 | post #2552)

It's only "backsliding " when you were standing on higher ground firstWhat you have demonstrated is that when someone shows your arguments are illogical, or asks you questions you can't answer, you either ignore their posts or insult them venomouslyAgain, that would be youAnd there is that bigotry again- the belief that non-Christians don't have hope or love. That is really sick. And we are supposed to believe you can have a hate-filled attitude like that, and still have a civilized discussion? Yes Vocal, that is a hate-filled belief, to project hatred onto others simply because they don't believe in your religion. So is it just Atheists you look down on, or does it also include Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, etc? How about Catholics? Exactly what percentage of the planet do you look down on with your Holier then Thou attitude?  (Mar 24, 2009 | post #2548)

Matthew 7: 1 Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? 4 Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eyeHere is the point- if you read these posts WITHOUT BIAS, you would see that the most vile, repugnant, hate filled ones come from Conservative Christians- and not by a small margin, but by an overwhelming degree. Take the beam out of your eye so you can see the truth. Vocal was NEVER "Stooping to our level". No one was ever down to his level but him- from his first post here on down to his lastYou don't even read the posts you directly reply to either. Your reply to my last post was nonsensical.  (Mar 24, 2009 | post #2546)

And what exactly have I done or not done? You don't know, do you? Of course not- because true charity is silent. And what name did I call you? Do you mean bigot? It's not "name calling" when it's trueI might as well save my words- since you just ignore them. It does tell me that my words sunk in though. SO, I will repeat them now- maybe some day when you will learn what Christianity really is, you will learn to love ALL people, not just some of them: Not only are homosexuals accepting of Christians- again, pay attention- most homosexuals in the US ARE CHRISTIANS. Again, not all Christians are Fundamentalists. There are whole denominations of Christianity that actually believe in the teachings of Jesus. You know, all that stuff about love and tolerance that the Fundamentalists ignore. Homosexuality is a sexual orientation. It is not a political group or a religion. I fully get that you were brainwashed with a bunch of hate speech about gay people, like that they are all out to tear apart your marriages and convert your children, but they are not. It's all a lie, every single bit of it. All that gay people want is EQUALITY. That's it. What you call "speak out against them" is actually "enact laws to deny them equal rights". When you think that everyone of a particular sexual orientation are all out to get you, that's bigotry. When you think they should not have the same rights as anyone else, that's bigotry. Yes, I realize you want the best possible life for your children. And what would you do if one of your kids came home and told you he or she is gay? First, you DO realize that most people in organizations like "Habitat for Humanity", "Doctors without Borders", and the Peace Core are Liberals, don't you? Second, you do realize that MOST initiatives aimed at helping the poor in this country are from Liberals, and opposed by conservatives, don't you? Third, does that mean you would support the right of gay couples adopting these poor orphan children you speak of? Which is greater- your desire to see people do good in this world, or your bigotry? ... and I notice you were afraid to answer any of the questions I asked. You were even afriad to lie about the answers, and pretend you were a Christian.  (Mar 24, 2009 | post #154)
