    And you do know, of course, that it was the Republicans like Senator Aaron A. Sargent that worked for 40 years and finally ratified the amendment to allow women to vote, against stiff opposition from Democrats.

    I think it’s time you did what your avatar encourages. Those “fact checks” by the AP were less than honest, nothing that an educated person would rely on.

    Case in point, they claimed “THE FACTS: There are no official data on job flows between countries. However, the U.S. economy has added nearly 14.9 million jobs since 2010, when the economy bottomed out after the recession.”

    We have not added any jobs since 2010. We have RESTORED a lot of jobs, and the restored jobs are not much to write home about, but we still have fewer jobs than before.

    It’s this type of sleazy “journalism” that convinces the low informed voters. Truth is not their stock and trade anymore.

    Hairy Reed is now irrelevant. Wish we could easily undo all the damage he has done to the U.S.A.

    Destroyer; you pointing out another’s typo while giving yourself a “Hail Mary pass,” is an example of hypocrisy, e.g.:

    1. Destroyer @ Sep. 26, 2016 at 6:10pm: “Because they had the law on their side and if these people want to file a lawsuit they are more than welcome too.” (too?)

    2 & 3. Destroyer @ Sep. 7, 2016 at 10:42pm: “The girls won though and they where treated to an awesome ice cream bar, us males received nothing because we didn’t raise enough pennies for Christ.” (where?) (us?)

    4. Destroyer @ Sep. 7, 2016 at 10:35pm: “As do why do I care?” (as do?)

    And 5. “I want this child to realize he can think for his own self, which is he is not doing at this time.” (is he is?)

    6. Destroyer @ Sep. 7, 2016 at 5:02pm: “Us atheist will fight for any student that is told they are not allowed to pray privately in a public school.” (us atheists?)

    And 7. “As long as everything is student led us atheist will stand up for their rights and defend their rights.” (us atheists?)

    8. Destroyer @ Sep. 7, 2016 at 4:50pm: “A child has every right to sit out of the pledge and a child has ever right to pray silently at their desk but go ahead, explain this one to me.” (ever right?)

    Nuff said destroyer, or are 8 separate examples of your “mistakes” not enough for you to realize an apology is in order?

    Typical crickets from Very and his buddies. Who’s the coward that gave a down arrow but was afraid to answer the question?

  • [1] September 21, 2016 at 1:35am

    No Jordan, the Bible does not tell me to do that. The truth is not in you.

  • September 20, 2016 at 5:32pm

    Very, specifically where do you get this talking snake business from?

  • [8] September 20, 2016 at 4:41pm

    This should be required reading for that guy with 2 masters degrees from MIT.

  • [10] September 20, 2016 at 12:44am

    UseYourBrainz, no one said anything even approaching that they somehow conspired, so is making that up all you’ve got in defense of their attempts to kill innocent people?

    Why must you make up stuff? Why is the truth not a priority with you? Why must lefty loonies be such obstinate bags of rocks?

    There is truly no connection:
    No connection between Obama’s brain and his mouth.

    No connection between Obama’s brain and reality.

    No connection between Obama’s brain and common sense.

    No connection between Obama and the truth.

    No connection between Obama and America’s greatness.

    No connection between Obama and America’s goodness..

    No connection between what Obama thinks of himself and what the world thinks of him.

    No connection between Obama and integrity.

    No connection between Obama and the oath he took as “president.”

    No connection between Obama and etc., etc., etc.

    Say Jordan, aren’t you the one that said: “It’s called english. Learn it. Live it. Love it,” in another thread?

    Priceless.

    Say Jordan, aren’t you the one that posted: “It’s called english. Learn it. Live it. Love it,” in another thread, and kept asking folks if they ever got out of high school?

    Priceless.

    Say jordan, aren’t you the same person that posted: “It’s called english. Learn it. Live it. Love it.” in another thread?

    Priceless.

    Spanky, it is nearly impossible to explain such deep things in this restricted format, so anything I say will be like a sound bite. What you ask is not truly the heart of the matter. The heart of the matter is that I’m a Believer and you are not. The heart of the matter is that you felt indoctrinated and thought you were a Christian because you were raised by people that were believers. You can sit in a garage and make car noises, but you aren’t a car, nor will you become a car by emulating one.

    I believe the Bible to be the truth because I’ve not found it to be false. I’ve found it to be a good explanation of the human condition. I’ve found it to speak truth to most situations in my life, and show me a better way.

    I believe Christianity to be a great way to get to know God, and an interesting way to change and focus my life and motivate me to be more like Christ. I did look into other religions and lived in countries and with people of predominately other faiths. I respect those faiths and those people very much. They are friends, and they need a Savior.

    I don’t believe my sect is necessarily better than others, but I appreciate that it relies on scripture, community, and the Holy Spirit to encourage, uplift and instruct.

    The flying spaghetti monster offers me nothing, although I do like spaghetti very much. Don’t believe in what I claim except that I’ve found Jesus to be the Way, the Truth and the Life.

    So Grimz, tell us how evolution explains the spread of mankind devoid of inbreeding.

  • September 18, 2016 at 5:48am

    Understand, where is this “talking snake” you folks keep mentioning. I think you’ve make a mistake, but I could be wrong. Please point me specifically to where you get this, so I can check it out.

    Someone said “Tell me HOW just because someone says its something that it makes it so.”

    Well, what does God say about ways to praise him and some instruments to use (caps are my emphasis)?

    “Give thanks to the Lord with the LYRE, Sing praises to him. Praise the LORD with HARP: sing unto him with the PSALTERY and an instrument of TEN STRINGS.”

    “Sing unto him a NEW song; play skilfully with a LOUD noise.”

    “Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a NEW song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. Let them praise his name in the DANCE: let them sing praises unto him with the TIMBREL and HARP. Praise him with the sound of the TRUMPET: praise him with the PSALTERY and HARP, praise him with TIMBREL and DANCING, praise him with the STRINGS and PIPE, praise him with the CLASH OF CYMBALS, praise him with RESOUNDING CYMBALS.”

    Spanky, as I’ve told you before, although having a good marriage, a good job, 3 great children, a nice home and 2 cars, at age 40 I still felt like something was missing.

    Introspection made me realize that up to this point I had been totally close-minded and very negative about religion (mostly Christianity) for no good or educated reason. So I started to look into it with as much of an open mind as I could muster.

    One thing that immediately jumped out was that I had accepted a negative stereotype of religious people, especially Christians – even though I did not know any such people very well. I remembered a friend back in high school that was a Catholic, and he didn’t fit the stereotype. I had a neighbor that was Protestant, and his family was actually very nice.

    For the next 2 years, I researched, read, visited some local churches, listened to sermons, talked with people, and disassembled a lot of my barriers in the process. I found Christianity was not at all what I thought it was, nor were most Believers.

    I began to pray and read the Book of John, and found what I read to be acceptable and truthful. I actually enjoyed it. I got to where I accepted the claims of Jesus, I believed in him and became a new Believer.

    My parents had a problem with religion, so it wasn’t something we did except for a very rare Christmas Eve service. Easter was for egg hunts and candy. Sundays were for yard work and play.

    Spanky says: “Faith is merely acceptance of an idea that carries with, not a single shred of evidence..”

    That is a good but incorrect attempt at a definition of faith.

    There is plenty of evidence for my faith, it’s just evidence Spanky refuses to accept.
