    I walked 3 miles, for 3 years, until I got promoted.
    Then I bought a car, and eventually got a better job.

    All things are possible through Christ, especially when he sees us working hard for it!

    AMEN! They are called stepping stones… a.k.a. learning experiences.

    That’s why they call it equal opportunity, not equal outcome.

    I want my kids to have entry level jobs! I had my first job when I was fifteen years old!
    Do they not see that they are making it impossible for young people to enter the work force?!

    zappa,
    I believe there are good (and bad) Atheists, Muslims, Buddhists (etc.) in this world. And yes, there are a lot of bad Christians. I had a catholic boss once who expected his employees to keep all his mistresses secret from his wife. In short, one does not equal the other, I agree.

    There is a Christian saying which says: A man cannot serve two masters.
    Either you serve God, or you serve yourself.

    Service to God means service to his children, rooted in unconditional love.
    Serving a power higher than oneself, means they are also capable of serving others, and that they will one day have to answer for their actions as it relates to eternal ramifications.
    I choose my representation carefully, and selfless service (Christian or otherwise) is always where I start looking.

    All humans qualify as selfish as it relates to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, but in a President I am looking for someone whose actions speak louder than their words. Just bc Trump says he is a Christian, does not mean he acts like one.
    I don’t believe that narcissists are capable of serving others selflessly.
    Case in point: Barrack Obama, Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi… I could go on all day but you get the idea, right? Why should America trade one narcissist for another?

    zappa – my brother once asked me why Christians need to vote for other Christians. My answer was ‘I need to know that my President serves a power higher than himself’.
    Thanks for being the voice of reason.

    Rob – I sure am glad there’s room in this world for your opinion.

    CoNm- Agreed, my dog has better judgement than the people running the show. At least he is loyal and dedicated to my family’s safety.

    The good news is, there are fifteen others to consider. Freedom comes through choices, and I am glad we have a lot to choose from. May the best person win!

    I don’t measure a man by the number of pin stripes on his suit, or the number of zeros in his bank account. There’s a lot more to it than that, don’t you think?

  • July 23, 2015 at 10:01am

    Which is your favorite, grape or cherry?

    I agree people don’t trust the media (or politicians), but it goes against my better judgment to award power and money to a narcissist like Trump, no matter how good he is at snagging a headline.

    I love Allen West… No fear, big balls, and wicked smart.
    He knows the enemy better than anyone I’ve heard.
    I hope someone picks him for VP

    Tornado311-
    Yep, I would definitely support the death penalty for monsters like this guy. Anyone who can rape and kill children doesn’t deserve to live, let alone be afforded the opportunity to do it again. Some people are too dangerous to be left alive. Anyone who would let this guy out is complicit as it relates to his next offense. It is well documented that guys like this WILL re-offend.
    (He already has)

    My point being, re-offending does not help them climb the hill, it just makes them feel better at someone else’s expense. (Not like stealing food to feed your family or something like that.) If we make examples of monsters in the public eye, others might rethink things before they commit crimes. If we let them get off easy, then some crimes are worth a slap on the wrist.

    I do agree it is hard to reintegrate after prison. As it relates to drug charges, theft and things like that, the “rehabilitation system” needs a lot of work. This is a two way street though. They can have all the help in the world, but if they don’t want to change, we can’t make them.

    I don’t understand why a ‘life’ sentence somehow means we will let them out when the prisons fill up and we can’t afford them anymore. I see politicians getting fat and happy on the dollars that should have gone to public safety first. It’s not right, especially when they keep inventing reasons to take our tax dollars. Do you agree?

    It makes me sad that the people who fought for freedom of speech are the last ones to get it.

    I know a surprising number of gay people who are not supportive of the transgender community.
    Isn’t it bigoted to say ‘LGBT’ community as opposed to treating people like free-thinking individuals?

    While I don’t pretend to speak for him, it’s my observation that he would rather represent the title of SEAL with honor, than take cheap shots at an easy target.

  • [1] July 21, 2015 at 2:27pm

    That doesn’t mean we have to stoop to POTUS’ level.
    I appreciated it.

    Regardless of age, he was sentenced to two life sentences. Why should anyone follow the letter of the law if they are going to be excused from their punishment?

  • [1] July 21, 2015 at 1:48pm

    We all have to ‘trudge through this world with a very large hill to climb’.
    Most of us don’t need to rape kids to do it.

    Thank you Constitution_Addict for pointing out the obvious to those it is lost on.
    You saved me the trouble of saying it.

    Tolerance is not a one way street.
    Way to represent your ‘community’ Mr. Tur

    Justice = someone in Indiana helping him forfeit his balls

  • [7] July 21, 2015 at 10:56am

    Well said

    Also, they seem to think it”s ok to arm Iran, but not our trained soldiers.
    What upside down world have I just brought my children into?!
