harleyman-- "Keep your religious beliefs to yourself!" I think I do. When a "historian" starts a piece on the Founding Fathers by selectively quoting Lincoln (who was not a Founding Father), you should perhaps be suspicious of his motives, and his selective quotes. Re-read his column on the beliefs of the "Founding Fathers": it starts with Lincoln, moves to JFK, and side-swipes into Andrew Jackson...while ripping Newt, Ron Paul, and Romney in the process. History? No. A political piece? Of course.
"Theological Campaign Would Trouble Founding Fathers." No. It would not.
fugitiveguy-- The move was simply amazing. Thanks for asking. As you know, they used real Navy SEALS, and real ammo. The action was incredibly real, and the story was very good. I cried like a baby at the end (my son did, too). I would give it 5 out of 5 stars. I would give this thread 1 out of 5 stars. Thanks again for asking, and I really like your posts!
Wow. I go to church this morning, then lunch with the family, then take my son to see "Act of Valor," and I return home to see this thread of eloquence. If I were a betting man (and I'm not), I would wager that some of you could make a point without disparaging others, or...(wait for it...) without using foul language. Perhaps I would lose my bet. These things happen.
http://www.wix.com/hollybondar/john-marcum#!about-john. Founded the European Institute of Technology under Reagan? http://www.euresearch.ch/index.php?id=670. I'm confused. http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/News/2008/February/27020801.asp. These links appear to say that this "Institute" will be established in 2010. What does Reagan have to do with this? Reagan was out of office by 1989, and died in 2004. I'm not suggesting anything sinister, I simply do not understand the connection between Reagan, Mr. Marcum, and the European Institute of Technology. Is Marcum's founding group different than this one? Was there another "Institute?" Anyone know anything about this?
DR (4 hours, 30 min. ago)-- As to JimHeim's post claiming that "Republicans are wedded to waste," you responded that Republicans do this "because it annoys liberals." You then add that Republicans are "basically bratty children at heart." Your post appears to have come only a minute before my response to Mr. Heim above. You can read my response if you'd like. When making purchases (like light-bulbs, cars, trucks, guns, etc.), neither I nor any of my conservative friends are doing so so as to "annoy liberals." In fact, we simply do what we think is best for our family. I seek not to impress conservatives, bore moderates, or annoy liberals with what I choose to buy. It's simply none of anyone's business. As to your labeling me and other Republicans as "bratty little children," that (in my opinion) was not your best post. You might want to reconsider what you said. But that's up to you. I don't tell folks what to say or believe, and I certainly don't tell them what products they must buy. After all, they're Americans, too. With the same rights and liberties as I enjoy. Hope that helps.
JimHeim-- I'm a conservative Republican, and I have many friends who are as well. I'm not aware of a single Republican who is "wedded to waste." Your point about "low-efficiency light bulbs" and "gas-guzzler" cars misses the point. Conservatives simply believe that it is not the role of the federal government to tell us citizens which light bulbs we must buy, or which types of cars we must drive. And we sure don't like the feds mandating what types of health insurance we must purchase for our families. We can make these decisions for ourselves without the help (or force) of federal bureaucrats. Mr. Rowerdink-- Great post!
JimHeim-- Thanks for the kind words, and I agree-- the conversation is interesting. SH59-- "Religion in itself is a form of control and just as dangerous as any political mandates, in my opinion." Depending upon which "religion" you are referring to, you may have a point. So, which "religion" did you have in mind?
JER-- I've seen your posts asking many here who they want to be President, or who could do a better job than Obama. I'd pick this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK3Eo9.... But since I lost him years ago, I'll pick Marco Rubio. Be well my friend!
Hey JER! Great to see you on here! How are you my friend? (No Diet Cokes with YukonJohn). It's a law.
