So what doe you do with Jesus? Is Jesus truly the Son of God, who actually came to Earth as a man, died, and was actually resurrected to atone for our sins? If you don't think that is literally true, then I'd say you have misjudged the Christian religion. The death and resurrection of Christ has always been the whole basis of Christianity. If just loving someone is the basis of Christianity, then virtually any other religion on earth will do.
Gaffe Spree? Wasn't that some German blimp, dirigible, balloon, or something like that? (Actually, Graf Spee, German battleship. I'm not much good at irony....)

You might want to consider a credit union. Ten years ago I was with SeaFirst Bank and they started doing strange things with their deposit rules, like crediting deposits at the end of the day, but putting check withdrawals through immediately at any hour of the day. They changes so often i was getting $100-150 A MONTH in overdraft fees. I switched to Fibre Federal Credit Union and my overdrafts stopped completely. I have had ONE overdraft in ten years, and someone from the credit union called me, on their own initiatiive, to see how they could help me stop the overdrafts. Is it any wonder over 100 million Americans have gone to credit unions? I'm not employed by a credit union, just a happy user.
This guy may not have a completely analyzed, documented, and peer-reviewed plan like the U. S. Government always has (get the massive sarcasm?) BUT (getting serious!) this appears to me to be a sensible and doable way of getting at least some progress against ISIS accomplished.

http://egyptianstreets.com/2014/09/03/egypts-top-islamic-authority-condemns-beheading-of-us-journalist/ It's rather sad to read such an Islamophobic rant on Doug Giels' part. There are Muslims, probably the majority of them, who are against the incursion of the radical Islamists. Look at the above referenced article. Egypt itself got out from under the domination of such a group when they overthrew Mosri and his regime. Then there are his slams against women who are protesting the sexual objectification of women, a jab at the Mormons - most of them that I know don't like the fundamentalist Mormons either, and the touch of homophobia as in "what are you, gay?" Yeah, I know this guy has very strong opinions, but this bald-faced sort of ranting is why I don't take right-wingers seriously any more. As Rev. Edward Hill said, "I don't trust either the left of the right wing because they both flap off the same bird."
"Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public." Do ya need any more proof?!
Elton John has never been a great musician. He had some cleverness in his music and lyrics but most of what he produced is a pale copy of genuine rock'n'roll and its predecessors. I've always thought of Elton John as "wimp rock," even way before I knew he was gay. If you compare Elton's music to the classic Mississippi Delta and Chicago blues and to the classic soul, Motown, Philadelphia, and so on, Elton's music hasn't got a tenth of the guts of genuine American music. He isn't a "has been" because he never was!
What is so damned hard about a single large caliber pistol shot to the back of the head? But if you aren't going to carry out the executions expeditiously, then outlaw the things completely! Two sides of the same coin - justice!

Isn't this enough proof that we are completely screwed?
