I live in Oregon & love the state. But most of Oregon is conservative (land-wise, taxpayer-wise), there are just not enough of us OR we are busy working hard making a living to be protesting. Blame Portland, Bend, & Eugene as they are the population centers. Many Californians have immigrated here making Oregon (once a very red state) into the new California. People with too much time on their hands that should go get a real job. They basically dictates what happens in this state. Way too much graft & corruption. They high unemployment, way too many welfare recipients, too many able bodied people receiving everyone else’s $$$$.
PS – Believe it or not “Occupy Portland” is still happening. These people need to get a life and get a job.

Oooooo, was he mad. He spent more time, emotion, & energy on his speech full of lies about the flopped gun control bill than he did speaking about the murders & the 30 some Americans that were left for dead in Bengahzi, the Fort Hood shooting, & the Boston Marathon bombing, just to name a few. (Figured that the O wouldn’t talk about the baby-murderer Gosnell. O supports late-term abortions.) You can see where his passions lies. The passion for stripping the American people of their rights to keep & bear arms.
PS – We still haven’t seen nor heard from the 30+ people that were left to be killed in Bengahzi.

Cesium, No, I have not studied “a nanosecond of study in the highly” tractable molecular” changes that occur during evolution.” But when that day comes when we stand before Almighty God the Creator, you can tell Him about it. I’m don’t think He will be at all impressed by your knowledge. I’m sorry. I hope that someday soon you can appreciate creation the way it is meant to be appreciated.
And no, I don’t think that all scientists are evil & trying to destroy religion. I happen to have an uncle who is an esteemed physicist & he marvels at the complexities of the LORD’s creation. It excites him to see the vast intricacies of God’s hand at work & I love discussing physics & quantum physics with him.

We are under the judgment of abandonment by God. So why are we so shocked at all of this? We’ve seen this coming. We’ve heard this coming. Our nation “voted” for this.(I would even venture to say that this election was our last chance.So now all of this crap is coming quickly to the surface.)
* We have “replaced” God as the Creator. Read Romans 1:18-23 for the WHY (teaching evolution, Big Bang, etc as the Creator). Read Romans 1:24-32 for the HOW we know.
* Now the question is, “How do we get back or can we even get back? Has the LORD God of Hosts left us forever?”
* We need to get back to our LORD & a life that follows Him. I, for one, must repent of this & ask His forgiveness. I am thanking Him for His forgiveness by the blood of Yeshua because I have strayed away from Him. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. But fools despise wisdom & instruction.” (Prov.1:7).

More evidence for GOD the Creator wondrous design!!! Just look at the above video! What a spectacular design is the cheetah. Alternative “theories” just can’t hold a candle when they say that there is any “randomness” – Goo to zoo to you. Let’s make it easy. See how many times it would take to throw a handful of toothpicks on the table until they would form a cube – no life nor breath nor intelligence to a wooden cube. It would never happen!
The LORD is very jealous of His undeniable role as Creator. Read Romans 1:20-25 to find out why God is judging us with His abandonment. If you want to know what are the results of His abandonment then continue to read through vs. 31.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom & instruction.” (Prov. 1:7)
You have obviously never had a nanosecond of study in the highly" tractable molecular" changes that occur during evolution. You think scientists are on some evil mission to destroy religion or something? Evolution is not a mere random process. If you think that well, you have already shown your inane assumption in your comment regarding the toothpicks. Just absolutely the stupidest analogy. It doesn't even come close to how evolution works. It is like saying it is random chance that the small grains of sand sort to the top of the larger rocks as the water laps up. Evolution works the same way, chance is but a tiny component to evolutionary algorithm.
No matter how far they go to prove that it was not created by God, they can never answer who created the first molecules. Who created that from which everything evolved?
I thank God for all His creations which include honeybees, dragonflies and our non- believing brothers and sisters.
According to Darwinians, we are all evolving. I realize that it takes time, but maybe in our lifetimes, we will see babies born with another set of eyes ... So they can text and watch where they are going at the same time.
Hey, Cesium, when did evolution start?
@Puny The moment after the Great Expansion (Formally known satirically as the "big bang") But, if I had to peg a point in time when evolution for life began, it would be the moment when the first elements of life were forged in collapsing supernovae before the earth existed.

I understand completely. I worked in the public school system for more than 10 years & saw the same abuse of the system. And the students laughed about it. Absolutely no shame for living off of someone else, and all the while being horribly disrespectful as they text away on their IPhones.
One student I worked with told me that when she turned 18 her father was going to help her apply for SS disability because she had a learning disability (dad is on disability, too). I told her that she was not disabled & she was more than able to get & hold a job. She looked at me like I had 3 eyeballs.
November 28, 2012 at 8:58pm
Sorry, I didn’t process the return for the student, it was the student’s parents. Oops :)
November 28, 2012 at 8:49pm
I totally agree with the charts presented. I know for a fact that the situation given of the single mom (or a married couple making the same $$$) is true. I prepared federal, state & local income taxes for more than 10 years in PA & saw the incredible abuse of the earned income tax credit & the welfare system as a whole. People would come in making $25000-30000 @ year with 3 kids & get a $10000+ refund check. They would ALWAYS ask me if I knew what the “top of the curve” would be for the next year. They would purposely take a lay-off or get fired just before they hit the “top of the earned income credit curve” & tell me about it, all the while smiling & laughing about bilking the system. (I no longer do taxes because it just became too stressful for me & I began having some very unChristian feelings.)
One example of abuse – I personally processed a tax return for a student with whom I worked. She wore crap for clothing, was unkempt, & was given a winter coat & school supplies through our faculty fund, etc. Her parents came in & picked up their refund check of $11000+ & off they went to WalMart. When I saw the student the following Monday she was so excited because they had gotten a big, flat screen TV. She still had on the crap clothing. Very sad.
One thing that the charts failed to include are the free lunches & summer lunch program involvement.
Sorry, I didn't process the return for the student, it was the student's parents. Oops :)

I, for one, would love to have Glenn come to my house & sign books & eat ice cream if he wanted to. The door would be wide open.
Glenn is the person to whom I owe my political wake-up call. My DH & I started watching him on Fox at 5 PM soon after his show first started & followed to the end. And if we weren’t home it was DVR’d. He & I both are now wide awake & active in our pursuit of liberty, freedom, & love of country.
We spend time researching information, reading thought provoking books like Atlas Shrugged, Road to Serfdom, etc, discussing our country & concerns with family & friends, being more open to involvement, & more vocal in our beliefs. Just being armed with knowledge of our present situation has allowed me to share Jesus Christ & my faith in Him with many other people.
So with hearts full of love & eyes wide open, we advance onward :)
November 27, 2012 at 1:33am
Well Bava, apparently you are not here to learn anything or to expand your limited leftist views. One of your not-to-distant remarks was…”You’re getting off the grid by posting here and paying for the internet service to do so? I think I know why you idiots lost. You have one brain between the lot of you and this wasn’t your week to use it.” Sound familiar?
If you really wanted to learn anything about how conservative think then you should read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, & the Gettysburg Address just for starters.
Once you do that then come back & talk with us.
November 27, 2012 at 1:09am
Looks like an upscale, modern dollhouse. Not for me at all. I can not imagine not having space to move around, let alone both people working & living in the same 550 sq ft all the time. I’d go bonkers.
I can’t even imagine how much $$$ they paid for just the hardware. A cheapie euro hinge ~$3.60@.
And the furniture looks about as comfy as sitting on concrete blocks covered with foam rubber & fabric. No thanks.
I’m very happy in my +1600 sq ft house on a 1/2 acre that has a water supply, big veggie garden & chickens. Can’t beat that.

Ever since I read this earlier today, I have been mournfully contemplating what awaits us now as a nation. Then I find out that there is a book by a so-called professor – “The Gospel According to Apostle __can’t say it___”.
I truly believe that the LORD gave us one last chance on November 6th. The “nation” chose an obviously a very dark (not skin color, content of character), charismatic, messianic-like person over a person who exemplified honor, love of God, family & country, charity, duty, hard work, etc. Our “leaders” have now backed this person by their inaction at the fraud of the election or collapsing on solid, Biblical principles.
I hate to say it everyone, but I truly believe that we better be praying & getting ready for a ride that we don’t want to take because the S is about to really HTF!!!! Study the Scriptures, get close to the LORD, hide under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91 is very uplifting).
November 26, 2012 at 5:05pm
I am speechless. I don’t know what to say. PRAY!!!
This is very bad!!! Even if it was supposed to be /sarc, there is nothing funny about this. It is outright blasphemy & blasphemy is NEVER a joke even if it is delivered as such. “…For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” (Lu 6:45)
No doubt that we are very close now. LORD, please help us now :(
PS – @auntiecare – no, Foxx did not say FOR, he said just what it says. I listened to it repeatedly. You need to listen to it again.

“fire broke out during routine maintenance to a mechanical area of the building, though did not give any details”….Hmmmm. Why were people doing “routine maintenance” during a holiday weekend? Burning in the duct work? Why were there combustibles in the duct work? Duct work does not just catch on fire. So that’s where the records were hidden. Hmmmm.
Nothing to look at here, folks. Move along now.
November 25, 2012 at 7:28pm
OMG, I didn’t even notice that. I have no idea what the heck that is. But yeap, that looks like a floating arm. The accident was real. And I would have been on Rt. 217 just about 4 PM, but changed my mind & decided to stay in. Whew!!! Missed that one.
November 25, 2012 at 6:45pm
Totally agree with the lack of shame in our society today. And the parents who are calling their daughter’s behavior into account are being criticized.
November 25, 2012 at 6:35pm
Public humiliation (admitting WHAT you have done wrong in front of others) may be the key to break this young woman wide open again to a full life instead of self-destructive behavior. I hope that her parents are praying people. Prayer is the only thing that will keep them sane & keep her safe.
I once read a story of a funeral director who had to stand in front of a cemetery every day for 2 weeks wearing a sandwich sign saying that he stole from mourning families. That was his sentence. When he was asked he said that he would have rather gone to jail for 2 weeks than to have to be publicly humiliated.
One thing I learned was one of the hardest things to get a child to do is to get them to admit WHAT they did wrong. When you tell them to apologize you usually get an insincere “Sorry”. I always told my children that their apology was unacceptable until they could say WHAT they were sorry for. Just getting the admission is a big part of the battle. It brings the wrongful behavior into the light.

I remember once being asked why I insisted that my children attend church, and that it should be the child’s choice whether to believe in God or not. I proceeded to ask them, “How can my child make an informed choice if never presented with information about the LORD? They needed to hear both sides, not just the one of atheists.” That shut them up quickly. Hee-hee :)
If someone doesn’t want their child to attend then excuse the child from school. Why should anyone IMPOSE their beliefs on me? Apparently this person has too much time on their hands & just wants to cause problems. Very SELFISH of them.
"Very SELFISH of them"
You are kind and selective of your choice of words.
I on the other hand...
You said "They need to hear both sides of the argument."
What atheists did you have in your life telling them that God doesn't exist?
There is a difference between not exposing kids to religion and continually indoctrinating them by saying that God does/doesn't exist.
Not talking about religion isn't one side of the argument.
In your case, you would have to have someone telling your kids ,"God doesn't exist" for then it be legitimate to hear the other side of the argument that "God does exist."
Therefore, I'm going with the conclusion that you're being disingenuous with your stance and took your kids to church because you want them to grow up in your religion.
If you really believe that kids are NOT being told that God does not exist, you are an idiot.
And you are a conspiracy theorists.
I went to public school from preschool on and never once did I have a teacher tell me "oh and God doesn't exist."
Why do you choose to live in a delusional world where supposedly everyone is against you?
Come back to reality, things aren't as bad as you think.
Yeah, well maybe someday I'll be as smart as you, MOD. If you were in public school any time after 1962, it was against the law for a teacher to use the word God.
And that's for a reason!
It's not because they hate God(I would argue I can't hate something I don't think exists).
You are perfectly fine with teachers talking about your version of God and exposing all other kids to your version of God.
What if your kid came home and said, "My teacher told me that Allah cares about our environment and that we should take care of it."
I'm sure you'd be okay with that right?
The only way we can have true religious freedom is to keep it out of the public arena.
If you want to worship or home school your kids that nonsense, fine. I think you're hampering their growth by teaching them to accept fairytales but whatever. We can't have State subsidized teaching/prayer for ANY religion.
Wow. The ignorance and hatred in these posts is refreshing in this age or Political Correctness and Anti-Hate Speech! First, the person who very poorly chose the handle, ModerationIsBest (HA!): Anytime a teacher pushes evolution theory without giving equal time to creation theory s/he is pushing anti-God messages. Christian children are taught that God created everything, then the tax-payer supported public school system says their parents and religious teachers are wrong. That's bias and a blatant disregard to the Establishment Clause since it allows the government-supported school system to mingle in the religious teachings of private families.
And to the originating whiners who are trying to control all the children at school instead of just their own - suck it up. Our kids have to listen to political and economic theory that we don't encourage them to believe in, so it's just balanced that your children should have to learn that millions of fellow earthlings believe the Christmas story. Take in the information, filter it, discuss it with your parents if you wish, create a mental note about it and move on. Just don't listen to anyone who tells you everyone else is wrong - including your stupid, knuckle-dragging, infidel (untrustworthy) atheistic parents.
"If you were in public school any time after 1962, it was against the law for a teacher to use the word God."
If that's true (and it certainly isn't; a couple decades back I recall my 9th grade English class reading and analyzing several biblical stories) then it would be impossible for a teacher to say, as you posited: "kids are being told that God does not exist" right?
There are atheist parents as vehemently close-minded as Christian fundamentalist parents. Doesn't mean God isn't all around us, and that kids don't pick up on that!
Wow, I don't know where to begin.
Equal time to Creation theory?
There is no equal time to "God did it"
Again, do you want equal time for all creation "theory"?
What if the Muslims have a different view of how humans came to be?
What about buddhists?
What about people who believe in Zeus?
Science deals with the real world, and with evidence.
As a Christian from the creation museum said, "if an experiment, on the surface seems to contradict with the word of God, we go with the word of God."
So essentially, you're going to keep ignoring evidence and go with you dogma, until the evidence is completely overwhelming and then you'll accept the new evidence.....and still say that God did it.
I'm sorry but that's just not science.
Creation stands on the shoulders of real science and then fits science in line with their unholy books.
I'm sorry but you just don't know what you're talking about.
O-Charlie- So if a science teacher shares anything that contradicts the bible, you have a problem with that? Maybe you should homeschool if you want junior to still believe that the sun rotates around the earth, that people get sick because of evil spirits, and that the Earth is only about 10,000 years old.
Teach your kids to think critically and it'll all work out. They'll most likely move out even earlier than you wish, too. :)
You are dead right! There is no political correctness here. And we just love it that way.
Soon you will love it, too - but I warn you, it can become addictive.
Welcome to the Blaze, by the way.
Well, I'm not sure how they got away with it because the U. S. Supreme Court issued two bans, one in 1962 and the second in 1963. Both were the result of lawsuits against teaching religion and religious practices in public schools. Basically stating (and ignorantly so) that organized prayer in schools was a violation of the separation of church and state. It was decided that publicly funded schools were an extension of the state, and that organized prayer or bible readings were a form of proselytizing. The bans not only banned mandatory prayer in schools but also the daily reading of bible passages.
November 25, 2012 at 5:45pm
Nope, this was the real deal. I was almost in that gridlock on Rt. 217, but decided to stay in. Thank you LORD for changing my mind. I went under that overpass today & yeap, it’s in need of repair.
