    To act like Cuba is the big bad boogie man that has a Russian bomb pointed right at us like its 1962 is no longer necessary. To forget everything the Castro Regimes have done would be equally as ignorant. We can never win the hearts and minds of the Cuban people if we completely shut ourselves off from them. In one sense or another, both Rubio and Paul are right. Having said that, I think the bigger issue is Obama. Establishing some sort of limited relationship with Cuba must A. Benefit the United States B. It must benefit the Cuban people. NOT the Cuban government. The reason I tend to land on Rubio’s side is because I believe the Obama Plan has more to do with importing Cuban Communism than it does exporting American exceptionalism and teaching Cubans how they can have Cuban Expectionalism.

    I believe that Mexico encouraging its citizens to break our laws by sneaking into our country, driving down our pay wages, sending our money home, while teaching them how to get freebies when they get here does far more damage to the United States than Cuba has done in the last 45 years. So does Paul have a point? Yes. Do I question his sanity when he thinks Obama is the guy who should lead us to noramal relations with Cuba? YES

    Unlike the Gentile Giant in Ferguson, this case could have been completely avoided. The cops are not at at fault. I don’t even think Gardner is at fault. The people who should be thrown in Jail are those who passed ridicules taxes in New York on cigarettes. Those who created an atmosphere for black market “illegal” cigarettes. And the worst thing you can do in this country, not give uncle sam every dime he wants. Isn’t that what this case comes down to. This guy was selling loose and out of state cigarettes there by avoiding paying the taxes on them. Its not the cops fault that they were sent there to enforce a stupid law. Its not Gardner’s fault for reacting the same way they did with the British Stamp Act. Had we not passed Prohibition, we never would have had Al Capone. The government doesn’t think about the consequences of its own actions, they only see dollars signs.

    UseYourBrainz. I’ve never seen someone read something and completely miss the point more than you did. I am not suggesting excess carbon in the air is causing more earth quakes. “But it ISN’T because carbon in the air.” So we agree on that point. However, to your point, that “No scientist has ever claimed,” can be quickly refuted in a simple google search. I will say, I am unaware of the degrees of those who write the following articles, but people are reading them, and believing what they say. http://www.livescience.com/7366-global-warming-spur-earthquakes-volcanoes.html http://www.alternet.org/newsandviews/article/560158/scientists_find_link_between_global_warming_and_earthquakes http://www.carbonbrief.org/blog/2012/06/can-climate-change-cause-earthquakes/ That is just the first three articles that pop up. All claiming there is a link between global warming and earth quakes. I don’t agree with any of the articles, however, there are useful idiots out there who do believe them. Making my whole point valid.

    All of the above have more knowledge of the bible than you and I combined. And there are a lot more (Look them up.) Point is. We don’t know when he is coming so my point still stands. Be ready at all times because he is coming.

    with the blood of Jesus. So please don’t misunderstand. I’m not demeaning anyone who thinks that this, that or the other may be a sign of The End of Times. I am saying however that, sometimes a tornado is just a tornado. And an earth quake is just an earth quake. But regardless of what is what. Jesus is still coming. And we must be prepared. Whether we die tomorrow in an earth quake, or he comes back in 20 years. Just always be prepared.

    Let me try and illustrate what I mean. I’m struggling for the words, and this is a crude illustration of what I mean. Do you know what Sharting means? Sharting is when you think you have to pass gas, but it is more than just gas. Next thing you know, your clinching, running to the bathroom and in a worst case scenario, your taking a shower and changing your boxers. I’m not going to over analyze every time I’m about to pass gas just in case the next one could have the surprise. Because more often than not, gas is going to just gas.

    I feel bad for the millions who fall for a preacher that has predicted the return date. And there have been plenty of preachers that have predicted and been wrong about the return of Jesus. I believe that some are lost for lack of faith for every preacher that claims he knows something that Jesus said he did not know. Jesus is coming back on a certain time and date whether we see or don’t see a particular sign of his return. So rather than focus on the signs, I focus on the fact that, at this very moment, I am alive. And in this moment and every moment of life I have until I die, I know that salvation is only through Jesus. And when he is ready to return, he will call me up to him. Faith said Jesus “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” It does not matter if I make it to End times, or die in a crash tomorrow. My name has already been written into the book of life…..

    We tend to measure storms by the damage they cause. But look at it like this. Which elephant will cause more damage. A 10,000 pound one in the middle of the African wild, or a 2,000 pound one in a China Shop. Yet if these elephants were storms, the media would have us believe that the 2000 pound elephant is the worst natural disaster the world has seen, and it will only get worse. The point I’m making is. The San Francisco Bay has always been seismic. So what do we do. Build tall buildings, move in large populations. So of course if they get a strong enough earthquake more people would die than would have if few people were there.

    As to a sign of it being end times. Jesus himself did not know the time and place, only the father in heaven new. His message was clear. “Be ready, for at any time he can return.” The problem with end times speculation is, for most people, history begins the day they were born. They have no concept of things happening prior to their existence. I’m sure that the people in America considered the Revolution to be a sign of End times. The bible said, wars and the rumor of wars involving great nations. If you think how that war involved so many nations and spread out through the world, you can see how many thought it was a clear sign. Same with ww1, and ww2. Rather than sit and wonder when he will return. We should just be ready so that we are not surprised by it. Live a life dedicated to Jesus and don’t be democrats.

    What natural disasters? There have been earthquakes since creation. There have been droughts since creation. There have been fires, tornado’s, hurricanes since the beginning of time. There is nothing new about what is going on when it comes to the weather. When the Mississippi river flooded in 1491, was it considered a natural disaster? No, probably not. Why? Because there haven’t always been millions of people living right on its banks. People that perpetuate this myth of Global warming would ask you the question, If a tree fell in the woods 100 years ago, did you hear it? They would have you believe that no tree ever fell prior to Al Gore inventing Global warming. Volcano’s have always erupted. And to those people who have decided to set up shop right at the base of a volcano, I’m sure it is a natural disaster. There is NO increase in weather activity. Are earthquakes more dangerous today. Yes. But it isn’t because carbon in the air has somehow made the quakes stronger. Its because man has decided to live in structures stacked on top of each other, so that when they collapse, there are more people in harms way, with heavier stuff to fall on our heads. I’d be far more liley to survive a 10.0 earthquake in my grass hut then I would a 6.5 on the 4th floor of a 40 year old apartment building that wasn’t built to withstand earth quakes.

    The NFL has responded in a surprising reversal by reinstating Ray Rice. Rodger Goodell at a press conference today said, “Do you think this would have happened had Ray Rice been on the train.”

    mom, do you want a truthful answer? The new “us” is a product of society as opposed to the old “us” which was a product of the family. The new “us” were raised in a politically correct environment as opposed to the old “us” that had to cut our teeth in the real world.

    So why the difference? The old “us” didn’t want to take responsibility for our parents. So we created Social security. So now the old “us” spends our golden years in Florida, while the new “us” has no past wisdom around to learn from. The old “us” thought “free love” was more noble than “war.” So the new “us” came to believe that every war is a crime. The old “us” burned our bra’s for the right to control our bodies and have abortions. So the new “us” does not have any respect for human life. The old “us” taught the new “us” that marriage is only acceptable so long as it doesn’t interfere with either party “finding” ones self.

    So to answer the question. This little experiment of raising kids in single parent homes, homes subsidized by government goodies, goodies that promote divorce and abortion. I guess this 80 year experiment didn’t work out to well. What happened to the new “us”? They are a product of the old “us.”

    This is the result of 80 years of progressive social engineering. Welcome to the “new” America. But I still have hope she can be fixed. It just won’t be fixed by “us” God will fix it. There will soon be a generation of Americans who look back at “Us” and say, what was wrong with “them”

    That’s hilarious. LMFAO

    If you think that companies don’t cost shift, and shrug off all their losses than you know nothing of business. But you obviously know that because our economy is so great right now. (Sarcasm intended.) Look at all the businesses hiring right now because of the cost of health care to their employers. (More Sarcasm.) When taxes go up, prices never change, because you know these businesses are going to pay the taxes out of pocket and never pass the cost on to you. (More sarcasm.) The amount we pay in health care is not at all related to the amount a doctor has to pay for medical malpractice insurance. (Even more sarcasm.) The price of gasoline never causes the shipped product to raise in price either. (Yep you guessed it. More sarcasm.) Insurance rates never go up every time someone sues their doctor or health insurance company. (SARCASM) College tutiution isn’t going up at a faster rate than at any point in time, and I’m sure it has nothing to do with the highest level of defaults on student loans. (More and more sarcasm.) And with millions of Americans and millions of illegals, not paying their health care bills, of course the cost of care is going up to cover the loss. (sarcasm) I think the only business you’ve ever run was into the ground. And if you notice, I didn’t blame the woman or the company. I painted a simple picture as to why prices get so high.

    What do you get when you add an obese woman with congestive heart disease and A sophisticated helicopter that carries a highly trained pilot and expert paramedics that are sent there to save your life. Divided by the square root of the salaries each person on the helicopter makes, multiplied by the cost to operate and insure the helicopter. And the answer is? A saved life.

    Is it the doctors fault who from another state ordered her to be flown back?
    Is it the doctors in PA’s fault for not telling the NY doctor that they could handle it there?
    Is it the woman’s fault because she doesn’t take care of herself?

    The answer is D Bob. Blame the people that show up by helicopter to transport a woman suspected of having heart troubles from point A to B under the pretense that they are saving a life.

    For added measure. How dare they expect to be compensated for their work.
    Sad part is, the next time someone needs an emergency helicopter ride to save a life, there bill will be 80,000. Why you ask? Well, the first person to ever skip out on their helicopter bill was Juan Garcia. He left the country and didn’t pay his 2000 dollar bill. That got transferred on to Okie Desmond of Lybria. He also refused to pay, so now the Company is 4000 dollars down. That cost has to be made up somewhere. Fast forward. After years and years of people not paying their bills, she gets hit with a 70,000 ride.

    I saw this speech live last night. I have to admit, her laugh is like nails on a chalk board to me. Having said that, so long as no one tells her a joke right before she speaks, I think she’ll be a darn fine senator. Congratulations to the people of Iowa, you elected a good one.

    Muslims from Bahrain aren’t much difference from democrats in America. They see one person doing something decent, they all sit around talking about how they should be more like him, then they drive away doing nothing. Sounds about right. “There are to types of people in this world, People that do things, and people that take credit. It is a lot easier to be in the second group.”

    I can’t take any criticism seriously from someone that has a picture of what looks to be the BTK’s mugshot. Having said that, I’m am not opposed to charity, or doing good. What I am sick of is, The soap box grandstanding. They wen’t 1000 miles on a scooter through an exotic place and they posted 5 minutes of video that highlight their goodness. For those who don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, but consider themselves Christians, read your bible. “Do good things in secret so that only your father who is in heaven may see them.” Are they being charitable to the boy, or making themselves look good. I don’t know, I wasn’t there. I’m not in there heads. But putting a video of yourself doing good things is good evidence of the 2nd.

    Society has become to theatrical these days. We all await the next internet video of someone doing something nice so that we may feel good about ourselves. There was a time when people did good for the sake of doing good and went on about there way. These days we have to put a camera up and film ourselves doing it so that we can show everyone else how good we are. Maybe that makes me a douchemaster badge wearer? But I really don’t care.

  • [3] November 4, 2014 at 1:20pm

    I love it when people film themselves doing nice things. I love it even more when people then post those nice things they do on the internet for millions of people to see. It says, hey look, I do nice things for other people. I’m special because of it, and here is the proof. That is why I never leave my house without my ribbons. My ribbons say I support all sorts of research on various diseases and cancer. I want everyone to know that I care. I also have an American flag pin on my lapel. But in fear of offending anyone else, I also wear flag pins of every country. Why? Because I care, and I want everyone to know it. I want everyone to see it. I want the applause for it. I’m special.

    I was reading this story and came across the same line. I started thinking of comments about that line. I scrolled down and bam, no need for me to comment.
