Hey AndrewLohr here's some more for you...
Jesus says, "Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace on earth! No, rather a sword if you love your father, mother, sister, brother, more than me, you are not worthy of being mine." Matthew 10:34
AndrewLohr,here's a verse for you...Romans 13: 1-7
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which god has established. The authorities that exist have been established by god. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what god has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he shall commend you. For he is god’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is god’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. There fore it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are god’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes, if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”
Rolando said "The real ObamaNation takes from the working stiffs and gives the proceeds of their labor [all the goodies] to the 47% who didn't contribute a thing..."
More of this 47% crap again. Ummm, how about sales taxes, property tax, utility taxes, payroll taxes? Do you want the eldery to starve in the streets? The working poor do pay Federal Income Tax all year long but get it back the next year. Get over it Rolando...
Come on Rolando, beat that dead horse some more...
He's an elected offical on the job. Coming out of the meeting, still in the building, he's still working, right? Where I work, a comment like that would have me in the H.R. office so fast as to result in a case of whiplash. At the very least, I would have an offical write-up, and the max would have have been termination.
I don't care if he says it was joke. He is in a position of power and shouldn't say racist and misogynistic comments even jokingly. What a prime example of the Southern-Old-Boy-Network.
There is often true feelings/beliefs to be heard in what people say even jokingly.
Hey ArnoldZiffel, didn't you say you were going to quit posting here?
Newt is just another crooked politician who has had many wives. One of which he divorced as she lay ill in the hospital. Great moral values, huh?
Great. We're hearing the "The 47% that pay zero taxes" again.
Ummm, how about sales taxes, payroll taxes, utility taxes, property taxes?
Get it right folks. You are talking federal income tax, right?
I guess if you can scream a half-truth loud enough, long enough, that the ignorant will believe...
Arnold, I'll hold you to it. Please go troll somewhere else...forever. And take Lumpy and Andrew with you.
We will keep BRP and Harp. You can get an intelligent debate from them occasionally.
ArnoldZiffel, is that the best you can write? Fat comments? Really?
Divided and Conquered....
When will all of you learn that ALL the major political players in this country are bought, corrupt, hypocritical, sleeze-bags?
If Congress was held to the rules the rest of us have to follow, more than half of them would be convicted in 2 years for insider trading...

"Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class — whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy."
