Who is punishing the US here? Who is even apologizing? You folks are so deranged that you would attack Obama for anything, even for rightly recognizing the tragic loss of life from these bombings. Maybe it was the only choice, but that doesn’t make it any less tragic.

As always, you are a lunatic.

The things you list were horrible, but do you think it was the soldiers who committed these atrocities that died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
It wasn't created to keep God out of the government, it was created to keep the government from creating it's own church and telling people they had to join. It was in response to The Church of England created by King what's-his-bucket wanting to divorce as many wives as he wanted.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"
No where does that say separation of Church and State. No law respecting the ESTABLISHMENT of religion.......Read it Pube
Research your history folks. Learn the FACTS.
The whole concept of an "impenetrable wall" between church and state was a line from a piece of personal correspondence between Jefferson and the Elders of Danbury Baptist Church. It was never part of the constitution, never part of a court case involving the 1st amendment and was never a part of public policy.
The quote was taken out of context and misapplied by a liberal SCOTUS.
Also, Thomas Jefferson was the US ambassador to France at the time, and wasn't even there when the Constitution was drafted. He also didn't draft any of the Federalist Papers, which goes farther to explain the intent of Constitutional provisions (yet does not address the First Amendment provisions of Religious Freedom), so his commentary on it means...well...squat. If anyone's opinion should be heard on the subject, it would be James Madison, who WROTE the Bill of Rights and was a staunch Christian. All misquotings by Barton aside, there is overwhelming evidence that the First Amendment reads as it does in order to avoid having the Federal Gov't establish one Protestant Denomination over another (Episcopalians, Presbyterians, etc.), NOT to forbid the Federal Gov't from ever having a hand in religious matters. It especially doesn't forbid the public profession of faith ascribed to military members, nor does it prohibit the encouragement of that faith. In fact, Congress authorized Chaplains for the military as one of its first acts because it understood the importance of faith (particularly Christian) towards encouraging moral behavior amongst the officers and enlisted.
In a sense, yes, it was made up by Thomas Jefferson. Those words appear nowhere in the Constitution or it's amendments. They were penned by Jefferson in a personal letter to assure the Danbury Baptists that government would not interfere with their faith.
It's called history folks know it or you will unwittingly sell yourself into slavery.
I'll just leave this here as well.
You believe a lie, and a number of posters here have pointed that out. One providing a link.
So … if you return here the same, it is because you DON’T WANT the truth.
Pretty simple …

Actually, he wrote it in Hebrew, so it wasn’t “kill” or “murder.”
If there is nothing to hide, then why does the administration fight the committee every step of the way?
Sure, that is why the Clown Administration is caught in lies all the time, hiding witnesses, punishing and threatening whistle-blowers, and doing everything they can to destroy and withhold evidence, but you keep on your knees, blowing and swallowing this Administration Pubic, that is what you are good at.
How many monikers are you using Commie Democrat Troll?

What a terrible country you want to live in, where people are jailed for not agreeing with your political views.
What is it about fascism that you find so appealing?

If you pay your full-time employees so little that those employees need public assistance, that’s a problem with your business model. The government should not be subsidizing your cheap labor.

Somehow I’m not seeing the “kindness” or the “generosity” in your statement.

David Barton is a known fraud. His research is full of fallacies, inaccuracies, and willful misquotings. Truly, he disrespects the founders and their legacy to serve his own ends.

Your two Madison quotes are known fakes. The first is based on deceptive misquoting, and the second is an out-and-out fabrication. Your Patrick Henry quotes is also mistakenly attributed to Henry.
In my mind, it’s incredibly disrespectful to willfully misuse and fake the words of the founding fathers.
I seriously doubt thekuligs will comprehend your critique...
Clearly, my understanding of science is better than your ability to take a joke.

Complete garbage. Not only is your conspiracy theory completely nonsensical (so, LGBT folks devoted their lives to the priesthood knowing that the church would cover-up pedophilia for decades?), but you use it as an argument to discredit young women who have been sexually assaulted. It would be laughable if it wasn’t so harmful. The irony is that you deny the existence of rape culture while willfully perpetuating it.
It boggles the mind that you would have the nerve to claim “honor” in any sense.
we know LGBT falsify incidents to gain sympathy. 14 in the last year or so, have hit the news, them being exposed for falsifying hate crimes, etc

So, you agree with me. As you say, there are people who discriminate by color. We probably disagree about how pervasive this phenomena is, but that’s not the issue. Certainly many people face discrimination, but if your white, discrimination is not going to prevent you from getting work, or a loan, or renting an apartment, etc. That’s white privilege, plain and simple.

Poverty and discrimination keeps families down in decaying, crime-ridden neighborhoods that they (or their parents) were originally forced into by redlining and housing discrimination. These are all well-documented phenomena. I would suggest that you do some research, but I know that this real issue is your lack of empathy.

The point isn’t that being white makes your life easy. Not by a long shot. No doubt your grandfather went through quite a lot. Now, imagine if, during that same period, he was black. In that case, what was so difficult in those times might have very well been impossible. It’s safe to say that in most cases throughout the 20th century, “living up to your word and personal bond” was not enough to get a black person credit; not when the laws of the United States specifically discriminated against you.
There are many, many people of color who worked just as hard if not harder than your grandfather, and were still kept down by discrimination. The legacy of that discrimination is still evident in the racial disparities we see today.
No one is saying that work ethic isn’t important. The issue is that so many face extra challenges because of their race. Plain and simple. The concept of white privilege attempts to recognize that as a way of considering how might better “level the playing field,” so to speak.
