If the government really cared about the planet, they would be mored concerned about the junk made purposely to break in order for the consumer to need to buy another, that is filling our landfills. They’d also be concerned about what genetic engineering is doing to plants, animals, and humans.
But those companies, along with the ones pushing this “climate change,” are the ones paying “good” money to get them into office so the governent will favorably help them line their pockets more.
Are you a fool or just ill informed? Planned obsolescence is a tool of capitalism and the best friend of capitalism is the Republican party.

“A chicken has a beating heart, Libertygone, but I eat it. The chicken doesn’t have human rights because it doesn’t have a human mind, the one thing that gives human life a value above other forms of life, and neither does a fetus. Even if it has a brain, it won’t start to develop a mind until it is born because it has nothing to think about. Until then, it’s fair game.”
That really is the most idiot thing you have ever said here (and no, I don’t disagree with you -every- single time). It’s not human life? Is it a chicken life, then? Is all unborn life not the life of its species? Well, golly, what right does the government have making it illegal to kill embryonic stages of endangered species, seeming how its not life and all?
“But what I said is that it doesn’t have a human mind. Not until it is born.” Were you raised in a box, Grover? No brainwaves until birth? Thinks nothing? If an unborn infant’s level of thinking does not pass your muster, then how does birth separate it? Because light and air hits them, suddenly they have “something to think about”? You don’t realize science proved you wrong a long time ago, yes?
Evil and dead to all human decency. You have that pegged here.

I’m with you. The attitude towards Muslim clothing is ridiculous. The issue is not the clothes. What’s the point of France banning clothing that covers (the reason to wear clothes in the first place)? If I were ever to go to a beach, that suit looks good to me, minus the scarf. Believe me, everyone would appreciate not seeing my flab.
People in the U.S. could use covering up more. I went to a restaurant in which a woman had on nothing but an ill-fitting undershirt so that her bra was plainly visible for all to see. It was NOT a pretty site, and hardly conducive to my appetite.

I fear the Democrats and Clinton more than ISIS because their idiotic ideas are more likely to get me killed by ISIS.
For that reason, I “fear” Clinton and Trump equally, if it could be called fear.
My trust is in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Too many “Republicans” have shown their true colors voting for Trump. I haven’t seen anyone on here actually refute what she said.
It’s you guys who were never Republican to begin with.
Between the socialist Democrats and the anarchist Republicans, the fall of America is on ya’ll. The world will run itself into the ground for its “rights” and privileges, and then stab each other when there is no food or clean water left. It will be the fault of those who do not understand the importance of households, children, and foundational values needed to structure a surviving household, the backbone of any successful civilization.

Agree, but I will give his candidacy a serious look.
Just when we thought all the idiots had spoken....TeresaJ's hand went skyward!
Yes if K-Sick can ignore the eight state rule then I guess that McMuffin can too.

I agree with you, MarcoGol.
This is the first time I have disagreed to this degree with Mr. Walsh on something. I don’t think he is ALL wrong, nor do I think Mr. Osteen is all correct. Somewhere in the middle I suppose.
God made this earth. What sense does it make if He intended us to be miserable in it? Because of sin and evil, yes, we will be hated and persecuted, but that doesn’t mean He didn’t and doesn’t want us to be prosperous and happy. There is, of course, some difference between individual prosperity, and the prosperity of a nation as a whole, but an individual who follows the commands of the Lord can expect to be prosperous by sheer virtue of being a good steward, as the Bible says we are to be.
God didn't intend for us to be miserable in it, but WE made the choice in the Garden to go against God's perfect plan - so now we suffer the consequences of that. The only recourse we have to have again the relationship God intended us to have with Him is through the atonement of Jesus.
The reward for following Christ is not earthly riches - the reward is Christ
Let me clear this up and actually tell the truth that no christian seems to want to hear or believe
. Jesus Wants Us To Be Miserable
. blessed are the poor in spirit (miserable) He wants us to be blessed, but in comfort and affluence we are not able to bless others and serve God effectively, because we are too focused on our flesh, which is why fasting and sackcloth and ashes figured so prominently in the lives of men of God in the bible.
The prosperity gospel is tickling of mens ears.
If God WANTS us miserable ... why are we continuously called to be joyful?
I am NOT defending Osteen.
@ kaydebeau…what makes you think the the fall of Adam and Eve from immortality to mortality in the garden wasn’t part of ‘God’s perfect plan’?? After all, without it, we would not need Jesus and never need to learn to walk by Faith instead of what’s put there in front of us. Eternal truth, is…well… Eternal. Jesus said “I AM THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life, and NO man cometh unto The Father but by me”. This is an ETERNAL truth, not merely an accommodation for this mortal lifetime. We wouldn’t have needed Jesus in the garden of Eden as we couldn’t have had and would’ve had no need to discern ‘right’ from ‘wrong’ or experience the consequences of ‘wrong’ or disobedience, so that Eternal Truth Christ uttered would’ve been negated. We would have had No need for Christ, his ransom for us in the garden of Gethsemane and on the Cross, NOR the glorious resurrection we’ve been guaranteed because of it. How would that work, since it is His Kingdom that we, as Christians, seek and become part of at baptism?

“Trump will stop this.”
No he won’t.
It’s amazing to me how anyone still believes anything Trump says.
As a posed to Hillary and the Clinton lying machine?
He does "love the poorly educated".
Its amazing to me your handlers raised you up to one cent per post. Arent you supposed to convince people that illeagle immigrate on welfare strengthens america with their diversity?
He does "love the poorly educated"
Hillary = 'I love to use and manipulate the poorly educated'
you seem to be one of them ...
"As a posed ...."
Google institutions that offer free third grade education opportunities. You need one.

tomp, the Christian Jews said the exact same thing you just did. They didn’t think Gentiles could be Christians because they did not follow the Law of Moses. That argument was laid to rest. It is fairly basic Bible knowledge for anyone who has actually studied it. That is why you actually look very foolish.
It isn’t that the Laws given to Moses aren’t important, but God’s grace extends to those who are ignorant. Especially since, as Jesus demonstrated, it is the purpose behind the Laws that is the most important. Not even the Orthodox Jews of today can follow all 613 defined commandments, because some of the commandments aren’t possible to follow in modern times. Does that make them less Jewish?
It is arrogance, such as you display, that makes the difference. Most Gentiles (yes, I am one) don’t know all of God’s commandments as per instructed, but murder, marriage, sexual relations, and even “transgender” would be among the most basic of all. Mr. Walsh did a splendid job of pointing out the arrogance of fools.
Teresa you claim: "murder, marriage, sexual relations, and even “transgender” would be among the most basic of all."
Isn't it odd that God has performed MASS murder on multiple occasions. That Jesus never married and was born of a virgin, which completely diminishes the importance of both "traditional marriage" and the sacred act of sexual reproduction between men and women.
UBS, you're again showing your ignorance of Christian teaching...ironic considering your handle.
Mary did get married to her husband Joseph, and before Jesus was born. If you actually read the historical account you'll see how it all played out.
What does Jesus not getting married have to do with anything???

Romans 1 (CJB)
16 For I am not ashamed of the Good News, since it is God’s powerful means of bringing salvation to everyone who keeps on trusting, to the Jew especially, but equally to the Gentile. 17 For in it is revealed how God makes people righteous in his sight; and from beginning to end it is through trust — as the Tanakh puts it, “But the person who is righteous will live his life by trust.”
18 What is revealed is God’s anger from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people who in their wickedness keep suppressing the truth; 19 because what is known about God is plain to them, since God has made it plain to them. 20 For ever since the creation of the universe his invisible qualities — both his eternal power and his divine nature — have been clearly seen, because they can be understood from what he has made. Therefore, they have no excuse; 21 because, although they know who God is, they do not glorify him as God or thank him. On the contrary, they have become futile in their thinking; and their undiscerning hearts have become darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they have become fools! 23 In fact, they have exchanged the glory of the immortal God for mere images, like a mortal human being, or like birds, animals or reptiles!
24 This is why God has given them up to the vileness of their hearts’ lusts, to the shameful misuse of each other’s bodies. 25 They have exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, by worshipping and serving created things, rather than the Creator — praised be he for ever. Amen. 26 This is why God has given them up to degrading passions; so that their women exchange natural sexual relations for unnatural; 27 and likewise the men, giving up natural relations with the opposite sex, burn with passion for one another, men committing shameful acts with other men and receiving in their own persons the penalty appropriate to their perversion. 28 In other words, since they have not considered God worth knowing, God has given them up to worthless ways of thinking; so that they do improper things. 29 They are filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and vice; stuffed with jealousy, murder, quarrelling, dishonesty and ill-will; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God; they are insolent, arrogant and boastful; they plan evil schemes; they disobey their parents; 31 they are brainless, faithless, heartless and ruthless. 32 They know well enough God’s righteous decree that people who do such things deserve to die; yet not only do they keep doing them, but they applaud others who do the same.

Well, Think, I knew it would happen eventually, but you just ratted yourself from the “fair-minded thinker” you try to present for the liberal doctrinist you actually are. You and some of the others posting here have the makings of a tyrannical, genocidal mob. Actually being what you accuse others of.
I... what? When did I accuse someone of "having the makings of a tyrannical genocidal mob"? If you're going to claim such things, I'd appreciate a quotation of my own words. Or at least an explanation of what you mean.
What makes you think what you do? And where do you stand on the matter of loyalty pledges - yea or nay?

I thought for sure that word not mentioned would be “Constitution.” But, hey, Trump barely says it either.
Leaning on going to the Constitutionist Party. I don’t agree with them 100% but at least they still stand for things like “Constitution” and “freedom to govern.”
Here we go...I am not a Trump fan but he did add substance to this...the closest facility and such...do what your conscience tells you to do, but I am a pragmatist and see that voting for the lesser progressive is the right choice when the other is such a corrupt person as Hillary.
Typical Trump, he doesn’t even understand what he’s talking about. Vets already have the right go to a private physician or private clinic or private or public hospital “of their choice” and still be eligible for VA Health. And, there’s no way he can guarantee that vets won’t have long waits at these private facilities. He can’t insist that private facilities take care of vets anymore “quickly and efficiently” than they do their other patients.
Cafeaulait...you are either ignorant or a liar...I work with a group that fights for veterans rights and if you live within 40 miles, straight line, of a VA facility you must use them. My town is with that range as the crow flies but is 100+ via road...still needs fixed.
DDMike, Not entirely true. If your wait is or will be more than 30 days at a VA facility, which is pretty typical, you can use a non-va facility or doctor. So, the option of choice is there if you meet either of those two criteria for VA healthcare, which most vets meet. Most vets live further than 40 miles from a va hospital/facility OR most must wait or will have to wait over 30 days for their appointment.
DSMike, I forgot to add that, as I'm sure you know , the "straight line" "as the crow flies" policy has now been revised to "driving distance" of 40 miles.
trump said what he would do. good for him. unlike hillary and the dems. trump gives a solution, not adds to the anxiety.
 July 26, 2016 at 10:34am
I don’t think he is lesser. I think he is the far left “Trump card.” The corrupt, those who consider themselves to be the ruling class of America, win no matter who America “elects.”
 July 26, 2016 at 10:31am
On the contrary, it is past time to decide what you stand for. Last time Obama was re-elected, he professed it to be a mandate on what America wanted… his way. Trump will act the same way, as will Hillary. It’s time for those with any principles left to stand stronger than ever.
Agreed. But we cannot be like liberals and try to make the world according to what we feel. We have to take what we have, the cards we've been dealt, and then handle things accordingly. At the very least, when it was Obama, nobody knew what they were getting into. The press ignored their job and didn't dig up any dirt on him.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, has had TONS of dirt dug up about him. We know everything there is to know about the man. The devil you know is better than the devil we don't. The press is treating Hillary the same way they treated Obama. They're not digging up the past with her like they have done with Trump.
At least with Trump, we know what we're getting into, and we can work with that.
