    Monk-Man: “Sharpton has no idea what or who God is… but he will one day.”
    So is that a threat Monk-Man?

    Guess what Monk-Man?
    NO ONE will ultimately get the “idea” of what or who god is when such is based on YOUR beliefs of such.
    Oh what. That’s right. You don’t believe in belief.
    NO ONE will ultimately get the “idea” of what or who god is based on Monk-Man’s personal interpretation of such a supreme being.
    Why?
    Because no two people have ever or will ever hold the same personal interpretation of god.
    Monk – and any one for that matter – may THINK everyone else will ultimately ‘come to know’ the god THEY believe in but… Such is but one’s INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL INTERPRETATION of such – and since there is no way to ‘prove’ a personal interpretation of a supposed divine supreme being…

    And its all moot anyway.
    It matters not what one THINKS WILL HAPPEN in some possible ‘afterlife’ – but rather… What really matters is what ACTUALLY HAPPENS in THIS LIFE!

    Why is it these religious leaders – Shaprton / Pat Robertson / others – offer these literally crazy ‘theories’ that natural conditions are some sort of ‘act’ supposedly done by some god?

    So who is putting together the Republican Presidential Candidates Program Guide – so that folks on the Right will be able to see who all is running and what their various positions and plans are?

    Maybe all these candidates are going to literally morph together into some sort of ‘Super Candidate’ – but sadly… Even that Super Candidate won’t be able to defeat the Godzilla candidate that is Hillary.

    That’s good – good.
    The first step towards making yourself better is admitting when you are sick / wrong.

    Good luck with your recovery.

    “It’s narrative building”
    How ironic TheBlaze presents that in a story when I have pointed out the NUMEROUS times TheBlaze has offered “narrative building” headlines.

    No one should be censored for using certain words. (Or for saying / posting anything for that matter but… There are ‘Rules of Conduct’ associated with the privilege of posting here.)

    Would be interested in knowing what context the word was used.
    Why would Woodyee feel the need / desire to use the word?

    I never said anything about those seeking to block the pipeline. My comments have been about the hypocrisy of the right about these matters.
    And just WHO IS blocking the pipeline? There are lots of folks against it but… WHO actually has the ability to block it?

    Don’t you worry… Capitalism and our global addiction to oil will ASSURE that the pipeline gets built.

    I’m NOT arguing that eminent domain is a valid (enough) reason to block the pipeline. Besides… There will ALWAYS be enough people willing to take a payment for allowing such to pass on their property.
    Also…
    I was NOT the one putting forth the ‘for the greater good’ argument. That was courtesy of Shellback. I just applied his logic to the issue. (But there are indeed many things that conservatives support and the argument used is ‘its for the greater good’.)

    At least we agree on some things – those being that ‘the state’ doesn’t really care about the individual and that the massive, greedy agribusinesses are a real threat to all of us.

    Now there’s a reasonable and responsible reply.

  • [2] May 27, 2015 at 3:52pm

    Hillary IS indeed beatable – with the ‘right’ candidate and enough money…
    But, in my opinion, the Right (or Left) has yet to put forth anyone with those ‘qualities’.

    If you self-admit you don’t read my posts then… There is no way you can legitimately offer that my post has “Nothing said”.

  • [7] May 27, 2015 at 1:42pm

    AvengerK / Gonzo / SLAP
    Bears worth repeating…
    Nothing like self censorship / keeping one’s self ignorant.

    And great… I and everyone else KNOWS your responses can’t offer anything worthwhile since in no way can you effectively respond to my comments if you don’t read them.

  • [6] May 27, 2015 at 1:39pm

    Oh do give us legitimate details on the supposed Clinton sex-trafficking.
    THAT sounds like a good one.

    I’ve said it before…
    I would consider voting for Paul over Hillary.
    But I doubt he will get the Republican nomination.

  • [10] May 27, 2015 at 11:49am

    See Gonzo
    THAT is where / why you are so wrong.
    You TRY to make up a narrative about others that is utterly baseless – just to TRY and make them look bad – all while ignoring your own failures / the failures of those you agree with (the Right / conservatives).
    Instead of just saying something like: ‘I condemn what this young boy did – forgive him – AND condemn what the father / parents did in response to such.’ … INSTEAD you seek to turn the table against others with but a false narrative.
    You offer but another example of the Right’s hypocrisy / double standard.

    I’m kind of with you. Not sure which is worse. What 14 year old Josh did or… How his parents / hypocritical father handled the matter.
    I know that personally for me… I can much more readily forgive Josh but… I have a much harder time trying to forgive the actions of father Jim Bob. And I understand the want of a parent to ‘protect’ their child but… He was just so hypocritical. To get out there and publicly profess: ““Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes,” when HE KNEW of his son’s actions… !!!

    And just to note…
    If the responses from the majority of the Right were more like yours then… ‘liberals’ (whoever) would have far less “ammo” against you.
    Its two-fold though. First the double standard (shown not by you but by the majority of the Right as they remain silent on this) and… Second. So many on the Right SO OFTEN make the argument that its from ‘broken’ homes that ONLY such things happen. That single parent homes, non god-believer/religious homes, etc ‘breed’ such sinners. Yet here is young Josh AND his father showing oh so clearly that… It is not the ‘environment’ that determines / cause such things. AND it’s not the ‘environment’ that ‘allows’ people to ‘properly’ respond to such things.
    And then finally… To TRY and ‘hide’ under the cover of… ‘Well now my god faith is ever that much stronger and so that makes up for our past sins’ – THAT as much as anything also bothers me.

  • [-1] May 27, 2015 at 11:31am

    Even if the Right took the ‘best’ (and there is a contradiction ) from each of the SO MANY candidates running for president… That ‘ultimate’ Right candidate still won’t be able to defeat Hillary and all her money.

    And all this is doing is causing greater fracturing in the Right. So now you’ll have individuals of the Right saying… ‘Well I like this / these characterisitics of this candidate – and those of this other one.’ — And then someone else says: ‘Well I like so and so for her stance – but then also like him for his position on…’
    And in the end… The Right is going to end up with…
    Bush!

    The Right will be getting bombarded with so many varying positions… Folks won’t be able to get it straight.
    But probably in the end… For the extreme Right… It won’t matter. They’ll vote for whoever goes up against (and loses to) Hillary.

    So what is it about your link that we’re supposed to respond to?

    So are you saying TransCanada should NOT be allowed to forcefully take (with compensation) the private property needed for their pipeline?

  • [-3] May 27, 2015 at 11:20am

    SocialismSuxEveryday
    No. I am not equating the two. You are. I simply point out the hypocrisy of many on the right when it comes to VERY SIMILAR situations.

    Just because someone is paid for something does that validate the action / make it acceptable? People forced from their homes. Or given some small level of financial compensation – when they perhaps feel there is NO level of compensation enough for the forced taking of their property – ?!?!?

    And guess what SocialismSuxEveryday?
    Protecting the natural resources ALL OF US SHARE is something I think we all / or even perhaps just some – SHOULD / HAVE TO pay for.
    If your farm, business, whatever is doing something that could pollute MY / OUR water source… Then you darn well better be doing EVERYTHING you can to protect OUR water!!!

    Do you think your name calling supports your position or does it just make you feel better about yourself?
