I was raised being told that God loves you, and that if you follow the golden rule, you will live a happy and blessed life and you will be rewarded. I was taught that being a good person is paramount and that helping others as God teaches brings you happiness and eternal life.
You know, I was told what was in it for me, and why it’s a good idea.
Not sure where you’re getting your Christian theology from… oh yeah, from atheists.

QUIT GIVING THESE MONSTERS ATTENTION! We need to start treating them like streakers. If you keep talking about them, they’ll keep doing it!!!
It's not publicity that they seek. It's the 'Reckoning'. Meaning, the choice of violence rides a Pale Horse. You must first consider the motivations for committing murder, and then closely look at the emotions. This guy was pushed out the door to stand on the Obama Unemployment line. He had a beef. He had a very big "beef"!

I suppose if you consider being slutty wholesome, then yeah… she’s great…

My wife is a teacher and you’re absolutely right. The problem, most of the time, is not the kids (they are the symptom), but the parents. The parents who don’t give a crap about raising their kids will NEVER home school, and those kids will rarely have any discipline or focus, and all the money in the world won’t make them smarter.
Not to mention that teachers get paid CRAP money, despite requiring a college education and CONSTANT training and professional development. Ron Paul is correct. The system is broken. And every politician that claims they can “help” is only making it worse.

Children aren’t all eligible to work, so the base number starts lower. Labor participation in the US is at its lowest point since the 1970s (when labor participation was growing because women were starting to work). This is a much more telling statistic than the biased “unemployment” numbers, that exclude the underemployed and those who have given up looking.

The more the establishment and mainstream media bash Cruz, the more people LOVE him. Time to get him, Rand Paul and Mike Lee to the head of the party so we can starting throwing out the big government “conservatives”.

It’s a shame these kids are promoting such a horrible role model in Katy Perry, but it’s inspiring to see regardless. Best wishes to all those kids!
If I didn't listen to music made by people I may disagree with, I would have almost nothing to listen to. It's an awesome song.
Horrible role model? she's a devout christian who preforms wholesome music. You must have her confused with someone else.

BOTH parties say that when they’re spending the money. That’s why people are flocking to libertarians like Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. They don’t speak for the Republican party, they speak for the American people.

You imply that Ted Cruz is unpopular, but that’s according to mainstream media polls. Meanwhile, he is GAINING popularity in the Presidential primary straw polls, where Rand Paul is on top.
Liberals are really sweating Cruz, Paul and Lee, because they are candidates that REAL conservatives will actually GO OUT and VOTE for, unlike Romney and McCain.
I’m a Republican, and I HATE the establishment Republicans. Why should we be concerned with how they’re viewed by liberals? 2014 is going to be a big shock to the media (which it shouldn’t be) and 2016 will be more of the same.

Independents and Conservatives don’t tend to be the mindless drones that liberals are, who tune in to see their favorite secret Democrat parody the Republican party every night. The sad thing, MOST Colbert fans don’t even realize that’s what he’s doing. It would be hilarious if those people weren’t also voters.

If you understand physics and math, it’s undeniable that WTC 1, 2 and 7 did NOT collapse because of jet impacts and fires. It’s just not possible for it to have come down the way it did unless it was intentional. Be informed.
Nobody knows who planned it, but it’s undeniable that the official story of the WTC collapses is completely false. Airplanes and fire could not possibly have caused the WTC buildings (1, 2 AND 7) to collapse in the way they did. It’s not paranoia, it’s science.
In an official statement by Susan Ginsberg of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, she stated that 3 passports were found at the plane crash sites: two in Pennsylvania & one in New York. Another passport was found in a piece of Mohammad Atta's "left-behind luggage."
This is an amazing coincidence for obvious reasons, but let's state them anyway...a) A fireball 100 stories high in a building that collapses to dust and debris leaves behind a perfect passport of one of the culprits to a crime, but it doesn't leave behind the indestructible black boxes of the aircraft recorders.
b) A plane crash in which damage was particularly severe, leaving no human bodies, just pieces of corpses weighing in at no more than 600 pounds, and a jet engine virtually demolished, left two intact passports of the culprits.
c) While the rest of the country uses identification to board flights (State IDs for domestic travel, passports for international and non-American's must provide either Green Cards or Passports), a foreign terrorist hijacker was able to board a flight while leaving his passport in his friend's luggage. And that luggage also happened to name all 19 hijackers and their precise motives in carrying out the attacks on the morning of their deaths.
Just one small part. Read the entire thing if you are not scared of possible truths...

Devil’s advocate here. Wouldn’t “sex” education for young children be “gender” education? They’re not giving condoms to 5 year olds (I wouldn’t put it past a progressive, but that’s not the case here). I agree with the statements that parents should educate at home, but that’s IN ADDITION to school. Parents should also be supplementing MATH and SCIENCE and READING.
Knowledge is not inherently evil, and parental guidance is always the most important part of creating DECENT humans.
No, I don’t want my 5 year old learning about INTERCOURSE in school, but she has a little brother at home, and we’re already talking to her about boy and girl private parts. Why shouldn’t the school as well? It’s perfectly appropriate to discuss gender with children.

My thoughts exactly. We all know this is leading to Iran, but I can’t believe he said it IN CONGRESS!!!

You don’t shoot unless the shadow shoots first? Are you insane? If somebody jumps out at me when I’m armed, they’ll have a gun on them as fast as possible. If they’re not running at me, I’ll yell “Stop!”, but if I’m being charged or (more likely in this case) within 3 feet of my attacker, I’m not waiting to see what their intentions are. Too many horrific stories start out “I wasn’t sure what was happening”.
Stupid prank. Horrific outcome. Nobody wins. Call it a day.

Ah, yes. The “common-sense test”. Because it makes more sense that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people, knowing it would draw the US into a war he is already winning. Way more sense that, I don’t know, Al Qaeda using chemical weapons against innocent civilians in order to further their cause of toppling the Syrian government in order to establish Sharia law. You know, because Al Qaeda would never kill innocent people to try and further their own cause…

Our government wants to condemn the killing of Syrians by killing Syrians, which Syria has said will result in attacks on Israel as well. Yeah, that makes sense. Let’s lob our cruise missiles of frowning just to show them we can. Idiotic. Cruz is one of the few sane people in Washington.
corrupt governments killing their own population has been going on since the dawn of man,unfortunately. why is our own government so delusional that they think they can stop it this time, without creating WW3? no thanks. and,oh,the irony!, of teaming up with al quaeda in syria while we're still fighting them elsewhere.we are a laughingstock.
Ted Cruz should let ME Write his stupid idiotic talking points....I could do a better job. I could actually make him sound intelligent...regardless of what he says....
