"...Republicans should emphasize hot-button social issues like abortion and gay marriage in this year's midterm elections,..."
And then you go, in a nutshell on how Republicans think what is important, or more specifically, what is not important, like the 99.99% of Americans who are not getting an abortion or who are not marring their gay sexual partner.
There are more and more people losing jobs. There are millions of people without the basic health insurance. There are small farmers and businesses falling to the wayside after being pushed out by the few huge corporations pulling the strings of the politicians. There are more and more gun killings and accidents that can be prevented. There is a huge need for better clean air and water control and the country needs new infrustructure.
But nope, the Republicans want to get into peoples bedrooms and tell them how to act and who to pray to...and that seems to be it.posted @ Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 09:31
I heard it was a diaper! Dimwits!
Why do you call them "dimwits"? If you saw this package in the ceiling, would you just reach up and pull it down?
Or are you making yourself feel better by calling someone or some people a name with intelligence you gained with hindsight?posted @ Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 09:21

The Republican party has so gone the way of anti-Christian values and so far away from the party for the people.posted @ Friday, February 28, 2014 - 08:59
"Who's going to protect the rights of Christians and religious people? That's the question that has to be answered."
Please tell me what Christian rights have been trampled? Are people burning down their churches? Are Christians being taunted in public squares?
Since when is protecting the rights of others not protecting the rights of Christians?posted @ Friday, February 28, 2014 - 08:42

i don't want to pay for abortions.... end of story
So son't have one.
Heck, I don't have kids but I have been paying taxes on schools and everything else kid related for decades. Suck it up, Stary, because really, how much of your insurance bill is paying for someone's abortion?posted @ Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 15:09

Because the same thing is happening with gays in Arizona and some other states in the near future.

Religion has always been and is becoming more biased, hateful and hypocritical. Sure, Jesus loved everybody but his followers don't like anybody who are unlike them. The same goes for the Muslim and Jewish religions too.
If there are laws protecting so-called "religious freedoms" then these religions sure as heck should be taxed.posted @ Friday, February 21, 2014 - 09:43
[quote][b]sweept[/b] - got away from my point I guess which is a lot of these jobs are not all that low paying for the non college degreed ppl that depend on them and these are the jobs taken off the table by illegals[/quote]
Also it seems that "illegals" are harder workers then many people born in this country.posted @ Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 14:52
"...and Corker acknowledged that he had no information on whether the company would also expand if the union won."
So, he lies and then has no real plans to get more auto jobs in his state. Sure, if people want part-time minimum wage jobs, the Republicans are great in getting those jobs in the state, but good wage earning middle class jobs? Forget about it.posted @ Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 08:50
“You would be OK with praising a person, but not the Lord?” Kelley asked.
Well, yeah. If some kid praised a politician and some other kid said that politician was stupid, big deal. If some kid praised Jesus and some other kid said that Jesus was stupid, due to a family deep seated belief system from the first kids belief, there will probably be a fight.
People kill and die over religious beliefs but not many will do the same over a praise of a Senator or President.posted @ Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 08:33

Good question yet instead of trying to venture into a answer or even asking anybody if there is a good answer to your question, you get political about it. This is why is seems that nothing ever gets done, people are too scared to think outside of their narrow box and to converse with anyone who might have a different opinion.posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 - 13:29
"But there is nothing moral about supporting a program that perpetuates the problem it claims to alleviate."
I agree. These tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations is immoral and financial depleting to the government, as well is the corporate welfare money going to the Exxons and banks out there who are the cause of unemployment, moving the jobs overseas and putting their tax breaks into offshore accounts.
Every dollar that goes to the unemployed goes back into the economy. If there isn't any jobs, there isn't any employment.
Let's stop blaming the people looking for work and put the blame on the corporations and CEO's who are keeping the jobs away from the American people.posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 - 10:03
“On one hand, if I want to go out to a nice meal, I’d get a baby-sitter. But on the other hand, a night out isn’t easy to come by when you have young children … and the couple was left with few options,”
Yes, they do have an option, don't go out to dinner or don't have kids. Simple. They have kids, deal with it. I don't want yelling brats next to me during dinner.posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 - 09:48
@snarkydude: Proof won't do anything to change your mind, you have already made up your mind. It will never change. Just keep on blaming the poor and let the wealthy welfare continue.
I hope you have a good day today, don't forget to wear your rose-colored glassed and have that big glass of Right-wing cool-aid for breakfast.

@snarkydude: A mindset like yours, when something is painted with a wide brush with no consideration to minute details and historical facts and is close-minded to the point that discussion is impossible, well, people like you ARE the cause or responsible of things never changing for the better. It is more important for you to blame somebody else then to work together to get something fixed.
That is what is incorrect.posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 - 17:37
Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
