The Bible and other religious texts ask each individual to help his fellow men/women. But this is an individual requirement. Having government steal people's money to give to others is neither moral or just. What Christians are expected to do is a moral, deeply personal sacrifice. Having the government simply decide how much they are going to take from an individual to give to others does not in any way satisfy the individual's obligation to share with others, it simply makes it more difficult. In addition, the giving by Christians is intended to be personal and includes more than cash handouts. The individual goes out of his way to ensure that those who he/she help are really getting the help they need. When government does it, it is one size fits all and is usually ineffective, if not downright destructive. KenC

Blacks and Obama

Obama is a weight around the neck of anyone who tries to run for president in the future. Who will ever trust a president of the United States again? Clearly he feels that he is a God that does not need to worry about the rules. Will we in future tie down our president to ensure he does not run amok like Obama? Maybe. KenC

Who knows, maybe Obamacare will finally bring America down low enough to allow the world to live in peace. KenC

Alec Baldwin vs. Liberal Bullies

Ann reminds us that we should all remember to fight for what's right, not just fight because the other person might not agree with us on everything/anything. I am always frustrated talking to liberals because, no matter what the subject, they are always against whatever conservatives are for....no matter what. Reality is that sometimes a particular liberal is right about something. Forget who he or she is, think about what they are saying or doing. Is it right or not? If it is right, defend it, just as Ann is doing now. Think, don't just react. KenC
My guess is that Obama and Soros will be delighted to contribute. I hope he is collecting from the left, as he should. KenC
