Gov. Palin: You have earned the respect of millions of Americans. We will support your efforts to represent and/or speak for us...in whatever forum or format you chose to do so. May all your future endeavors be blessed and successful.
So, John, you are claiming [or asserting that Hawkins is claiming] that God has to "live down" to human standards?
I disagree that BO can't see "what the real evil is." Isn't it obvious that America is the "real evil?" Sarc off.
Steve: Completely agree with the sentiment of your post. Would add that, imo, islam is not a religion as most of humanity understands the concept. Instead, it is a totalitarian and/or fascist system of "government" (a so-called theocratic system) in which the masses are subjected to the barbaric and sick dictates of evil masters/elites that are disguised as "religious" dogmas.

1. Eliminate or drastically reduce corporate taxes, i.e. bring industry and commerce back to America...allowing nearly every able bodied American to work for a living and afford health insurance. 2. Eliminate the requirement that Hospitals (the ER) treat every person who gets through the door regardless of ability to pay for services. Does the grocer owe me food just because I made it into his store? This, alone, would incentivise millions of the uninsured to acquire insurance. 3. Eliminate nearly all Federal involvement in medical care, but allow the states to support agencies such as the CDC should they believe that a nationally supported agency of that kind would be beneficial to the states (i.e. its citizens). Exceptions might be allowing the Federal Government some authority to deal with pandemics, bioterrorism, etc. 4. Stop teaching Socialism to our children; start teaching reality. We may be "equal" with respect to political functions, but we are not equal with respect to genetic inheritance, circumstances of life, etc. Expecting equal outcomes for every case of a given illness or injury is a unicornian fantasy.

Thanks for the reference, James. I like most of them but can't agree with term limits.
No argument from me on that advice, H8.
kudos for elaboration, Jason. I take it that you believe the root cause of problems in Washington is greed. Those members of the House or Senate, then, who voted for Boehner and McConnell must have believed that they would benefit, financially (or, perhaps, in other ways) in return for their vote. How do we fix that?
Thank you Kirk. Re the leadership, I am trying to suggest that Boehner and McConnell are not the problem, per se; the problem is that a majority of their peers elected them to the positions they hold - but no one seems to want to acknowledge that fact.
