France is extremely pro-Moslem. It follows that France is anti-Semitic because all the Moslems in France are anti-Semitic..

Mr.. Ryan voted to elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House. No effort to elect a principled conservative at all. He lost me with that. The Republican Party lost me. I'd vote for Ralph Nader (again) instead of a Republican.
Paul Ryan is my rep. After the last vote on the CR/omnibus, I phoned and emailed him that I'd never vote Republican again. I won't. Start your third party now, because the Republican Party is just Obama lite. It has no concern for anyone's interests but the government's and the politicians'. Bite the bullet now and maybe in 10 years we can take the country back. It won't happen as long as we are slaves to the Republican Politicians.

How about the lie of the "War on Poverty"? Lyndon Johnson was going to lift the ragged, discriminated black masses out of poverty with enormous federal subsidies. How did that work out?
Sarah Palin doesn't express herself well, but neither does Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. But no one holds it against Sharpton or Jackson because they're Black. I guess we're supposed to expect it of Blacks. In Palin's case, at least she can tell the difference between a human being and tumor, which is something all Democrats can't do.
So just to clarify with an example. When the City of Chicago puts up a Christmas Tree and a sign wishing people "Merry Christmas," it isn't celebrating a religion. It is celebrating a social tradition which none of the Framers ever expected would be castigated.
By "religion," the founding fathers and I are referring to individual institutions of religion, a particular sect or a particular church, like Roman Catholic or Anglican or Puritan. They weren't saying that the concept of good and evil based upon 10 commandments morality and the golden rule cannot be recognized as having worth or that all behavior had to be equivalent in government's eyes. Believing in God and moral tradition is not religion. It is thought, philosophy. The western sense of good and evil that derives from it is a social tradition. There are several other social traditions on earth. They are universally more primitive (Wicca or devil worship or voodoo or Islam or paganism) and provide a less savory social structure for cultural advancement, universal suffrage or equality of rights or freedom of thought and expression. So that in Islam, it is perfectly alright to stone your daughter to death if she doesn't wear her burka, or if someone rapes her, for example. It is alright to kill an infidel. Improvements on barbarianism come from the Judeo-Christian tradition and are very foreign to Hinduism or Islam. The Founding Fathers did not mean to separate government from Christian ideals, they just meant to avoid competing dogmas.
Or if the person is a woman, she is not protected.
"Christianity" isn't a religion. Catholicism, Lutheranism, Jain, and many other organizations are religions, and they have churches or temples, but there is no "Church of Christianity." Belief in God or Jesus Christ isn't a religion. It is a social tradition from which a set of social mores provides a basis for a social contract and so order may prevail and structure may guide a societies progress. There is no social contract for our society to universally outlaw homicide, theft, assault, for example, except it is found in the Judeo-Christian tradition. It isn't so in other social traditions. In the Moslem social tradition, for example, ther is no universal prohibition against homicide, rape, assault, etc. Those prohibitions only apply to other Moslems. If a person is not from the tradition, he is not protected. The Founding Fathers were referring to specific religions with the establishment clasue. THey did not mean to segregate either faith in God, or Judeo Christianity generally from the lawful bases of the social contract.
