Wonder where all the money went? It went to government workers who now make almost twice what the rest of the workers in the USA make. Wonder where that money comes from...Oh, yeah, taxes. A million of them. STOP in the NAME OF LOVE
You have to give Ann Coulter Credit. She is a brassy lady. Goes to make a paid speech to a convention of Conservative Homosexuals. She comes out against gay marriage. Not a civil right. AND, she isn't booed off the stage. I'm not sure I would have that kind of guts.
I hope you learn to speak Chinese. You will need to be able to communicate with your BOSS!
I have few ailments other than the date of birth on my drivers licence which is longer ago than it should be to be this well. BUT, I get a bout of gout about once a year or so. STRESS. I have a lot of it now. I'm healing. A little less avoirdupois wouldn't hurt and fewer dead deer ingested. Harrumph. Life change is no fun.
Did Israeli Geniuses come up with this idea? Brilliant. Very smart folks those.
"Democratic control for fouryears in Congress, and two in the White House has been exactly whatmany predicted: an ideologically-driven disaster of epic proportions. For years, progressives obfuscated their true intentions, because even they knew most Americans couldn't stomach them. The elections of 200...6 and 2008 changed everything. Progressives bought into their own hype, believing they had pulled off a multi-generational transformation of the American mindset. As a result, they showed Americans their truecolors: unbridled arrogance, utter contempt for the average citizen's intellect, and a ham-fisted, never let a crisis go to waste determination to bend the electorate to their will, using government as a club."

The case of mega-church minister Bishop Eddie Long - the
charismatic pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in suburban Atlanta who is accused in lawsuits filed by four men of coercing them into having sex with him - is not an anomaly. And the Long scandal is raising a number of serious issues within the evangelical movement including the absurd amount of wealth accumulated by some successful charismatic preachers, and their predilection for sexual shenanigans.
This article is why I am concerned about the nomenclature "Spiritual Sons and Daughters" in the church. I know there are biblical references, but there seems to be the significant potential for misuse. I have spiritual fathers, but I don't worship them, I have spiritual sons and daughters, but they don't revere me ab...ove any other. HONOR, yes, reverence? NOPE. I think we need to reconsider the use of this terminology. It has a landmine hidden just under the surface.
Watching CNBC this morning, Ford refused Government Money, is doing great. GM and Chrysler, not so much. Banks who REFUSED tarp money are doing great. Others nope. In fact the more money the government poured into these banks and companies the worse they are off. Seems like a metaphor for human welfare. Making sure no one can fail creates failure
As an opera fan these folks in this commercial, even if they are lip syncing, are why I do appreciate opera so much. The bass has a great voice. So does the tenor with the hard hat. Opera is a wonderful genre.

On Tuesday, Barack Obama was on his perpetual campaign tour, and he made a stop in Albuquerque for one of his attempts to portray himself as being in touch with the common man. He’s conducting a series of what they’re calling “backyard conversations,” and this stop on Tuesday was one of them.
The big story of Obama’s Albuquerque appearance that exploded across the wires was his answer to a woman asking him, “Why are you a Christian?” Okay, first of all, here is a planted question if I’ve even seen one, and the question itself presupposes an answer, a bit like the old “have you stopped beating your wife yet?” The question presupposes that Obama is a Christian. Apparently, Obama’s handlers really do care about America’s perception of his religious beliefs. Polling shows that many Americans firmly believe Obama is a Muslim. I guess that’s not good in the eyes of this administration.
By now you’ve heard his answer played everywhere ad nauseam (“I’m a Christian by choice. Blah, blah, blah”), but one line in his answer to the lady’s question set me off, because it’s not the first time he has used the line. In his answer, he said,
“…the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead. Being my brothers and sisters’ keeper…”
Being my brother’s keeper; that has a Biblical ring, doesn’t it? The problem is that many, many people nowadays don’t have even a basic working knowledge of what is actually written in the Bible and so are easily deceived by people who rip Scripture completely out of context and pervert what the Word of God really says.
Do you know where in the Bible the phrase “my brother’s keeper” appears and in what context? Let’s take a look at the only place that line appears in the Bible: Genesis, chapter 4, beginning in verse 8,
“And Cain talked with Abel his brother, and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and slew him.
And the Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’
And the Lord said, ‘What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.
‘And now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.’”
So, there is the context and meaning of that line. Cain is answering the Lord with a smart aleck lie. You can almost hear the tone of Cain’s voice saying, “I don’t know where Abel is! What do you think I am, my brother’s babysitter?!” Cain was very bad off at that point.
Now, Obama uses that line obviously intending to give his words a Christian sound, but he is twisting what those words actually mean in Scripture. Obama seems to imagine that those words have a meaning of charity, maybe even a socialistic utopian vision of every man being his brother’s keeper by surrendering his paycheck to Big Brother to redistribute in all of Big Brother’s socialistic “generosity.”
Barack Obama is not a Christian. I’m not saying that simply because he demonstrates an ignorance of Scripture and a willingness to distort the Word of God for political gain; I’m saying it because of everything I’ve learned and observed about Obama. He supports the hideous and barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion of full-term babies–infanticide. He supports withholding life-saving care from a baby who has survived a botched abortion, so the baby suffers and dies a horrible death. He backs the homosexual agenda to the point the he supports the open flaunting of homosexuality within our military, and he has packed his administration with radical leftist homosexuals. He routinely lies when speaking. It would be easier and quicker to make a list of truths Obama has spoken than the countless lies he has uttered. No one will see a tax increase. You can keep your health insurance if you like it. The health care bill will lower costs and improve the quality of health care. We will post all bills online to give the public a chance to see them before we vote on them. Those are just a few examples of his lies, for those of you who demand examples, and of course there are many, many more.
And, don’t forget–twice now, Obama has omitted the word Creator when quoting our Declaration of Independence. That certainly does not seem like something a Christian would do, now does it?
Obama spent 20 years in the Chicago church of a false prophet, Jeremiah Wright. That church hijacked the name of Christ to use in its title, Trinity United Church of Christ. All you need is to hear or read just a portion of Wright’s sermons to know that Christ is nowhere near Wright’s teachings.
No, Obama is certainly no Christian. His past is steeped in Marxism and communism. He was trained in the ways of socialism. His friends and mentors are enemies of America, enemies of freedom, enemies of truth. Marxism, which is socialism, and communism are godless ideologies. The state is the only god, and the state demands servitude of the people. The state is in direct competition with the one true God. Marxism and Christianity are indeed mutually exclusive.
Personally, I don’t have to be told what’s in Obama’s heart, because I can see what he’s doing, and that tells me plenty about what’s in his heart. He is trying to destroy our country, with the help of his like-minded buddies also in power in Washington. Since he is on an evil mission to tear down American freedom and sovereignty and to steal money from those who earn it to pad the coffers of the government, it is a given that Christ is not in his heart–by its fruit, you know the tree.
Is he a Muslim? That, too, doesn’t matter to me, except that his sympathy or empathy with Islam is part of why we’re seeing such a rise in the push for Shariah in our country under his watch. When you see how he acts toward the Islamists, bowing and coddling, there is no doubt that he reveres Islam. Does that mean he is a Muslim? Not necessarily. But he was raised with Islam during his childhood. His father and stepfather were Muslims.
The bottom line here is that while I’m certain Obama is not a Christian and might possibly be a Muslim or even a believer in nothing higher than himself, what really matters is what he is actually doing to our country. We don’t need to be distracted by the question of what’s in Obama’s heart in terms of his religious beliefs, because we can see plainly enough by his bad behavior that whatever is in his heart, it’s not good, not good at all.

(Editor's note: Whatever your political beliefs, we can all agree that people say the dumbest things. Below you'll find some some stupid liberal quotes put together by Jenny Erikson. For equally stupid -- and funny -- statements made by their conservative counterparts, read the Top 50 Dumbest Conservative Quotes.)
Without much preamble and hardly any ado, I present to you 50 dumb quotes from those on the left side of the aisle. From crazy ideas about toilet paper usage to freak-outs over balloons, this list will make you laugh and shake your head in disbelief (and maybe even vote Republican in November?).
1. Sheryl Crow on Environmentalism: "I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.'"
2. Joe Biden on culturalism: "In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."
3. Whoopi Goldberg on 43-year-old Roman Polanski raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl: "I know it wasn't rape-rape. It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and [sic] when they let him out he was like "You know what this guy's going to give me a hundred years in jail I'm not staying, so that's why he left."
5. John Conyers on the Health Care Bill, which he voted for: "I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill ... What good is reading the bill if it's a thousand pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?'"
6. Former DNC Chairman Donald Fowler on possible delay of RNC convention due to Hurricane Gustav: "Plus they think the hurricane's going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it'll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God's on our side"
7. Barack Obama: "I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go?"
8. John Kerry on the troops: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
9. Howard Dean: "We know that no one person can succeed unless everybody else succeeds."
10. Rosie O'Donnell: "Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers."
11. Al Gore: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."
12. Congressman Hank Johnson on Guam: "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,"
13. Alan Grayson on Health Care: "The Republican health care plan: don't get sick ... The Republicans have a back up plan in case you do get sick ... This is what the Republicans want you to do. If you get sick America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly!"
14. Nancy Pelosi on the economy: "every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs."
16. Wanda Sykes: "I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker but he was just so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight ... Rush Limbaugh -- I hope the country fails. I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a waterboarding, that's what he needs."
17. Bill Clinton on ordinary Americans: "African Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do."
18. Barack Obama on a tornado that killed twelve people: "In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died - an entire town destroyed"
19. Harry Reid on Iraq: "This war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything."
20. Kanye West: "George Bush doesn't care about black people."
21. Joe Biden on the economy: "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S."
22. Bill Maher on Christianity: "I think religion is a neurological disorder.
23. Joe Biden on History: "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened."
24. Ted Rall: "Over time, however, the endless war in Iraq began to play a role in natural selection. Only idiots signed up; only idiots died. Back home, the average I.Q. soared."
25. Michael Moore on terrorism: "There is no terrorist threat. Yes, there have been horrific acts of terrorism and, yes, there will be acts of terrorism again. But that doesn't mean that there's some kind of massive terrorist threat."
26. Henry Waxman on Environmentalism: "We're seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point - they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn't ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there's a lot of tundra that's being held down by that ice cap."
27. Marion Barry, former mayor of Washington, DC: "If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate."
28. California Senator Barbara Boxer: "Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, ‘Thank God, I'm still alive.' But, of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again."

33. Bill Clinton: "It all depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is' is."
34. Jerry Brown, former governor of California, and current candidate for the same position: "The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs."
35. Democratic Convention producer Don Mischer, overheard on CNN having an apoplectic seizure when the balloons failed to drop from the ceiling of the Fleet Center in Boston: "Go, balloons. I don't see anything happening. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. Stand by, confetti. Keep coming, balloons. More balloons. Bring them. Balloons, balloons, balloons! More balloons. Tons of them. Bring them down. Let them all come. No confetti. No confetti yet. No confetti. All right. Go, balloons. Go, balloons. We're getting more balloons. All balloons. All balloons should be going. Come on, guys! Let's move it. Jesus! We need more balloons. I want all balloons to go. Go, confetti. Go, confetti. Go, confetti. I want more balloons. What's happening to the balloons? We need more balloons. We need all of them coming down. Go, balloons. Balloons. What's happening balloons? There's not enough coming down. All balloons! Why the hell is nothing falling? What the f--- are you guys doing up there? We want more balloons coming down. More balloons. More balloons."

39. Al Gore on zoology: "A zebra does not change its spots."
40. Rod Blagojevich, former governor of IL: "I'm blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up."
41. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the newly passed health care law: "We actually have not required in this law that you carry health insurance."
42. Congressman John Dingell on freedom: "The harsh fact of the matter is when you're passing legislation that will cover 300 million American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."
43. Former Congressman Eric Massa: "Now, they're saying I groped a male staffer. Yes, I did. Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn't breathe and four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday."
