Z sez, "LBJ escalated the Vietnam War just to show he was macho." I don't know that i agree with your conclusion. LBJ did say something on the order of "We have to hunker down and see it through" (more or less). LBJ was victimized by the old cold war mentality that saw every little political state as a domino in a big board game for global hegemony. He is redeemed only by his commitment to Civil Rights and the War on Poverty, regardless of the fact his well-placed Christian desire to help ended up hurting...
But at least his motivation, compared to Tricky Dick, Kong Ronnie and Bush the Younger, was well intended. That also is in fact the issue with the current cartoon, the proponents of control of global warming are well intended, based on good science but the implementation will likely fall short of success.
Let me cite six examples of totally anti-Christian behavior (singularly and in toto) written by old connie that rise to the level of apostasy (renunciation of Christian belief) :
"Mr. Anthony Provancher is a constant liar who often slanders me."
"Mr. Anthony Provancher seems to love making a fool of himself."
" Continuing with exposing Mr. Anthony Provancher who denies the deity of Jesus Christ."
"Mr. Anthony Provancher was probably taught that the Son of God was procreated like man from the Mormon cult he was associated with."
"This is great irony in that Mr. Anthony Provancher cites the Scripture that proves him as a liar, blasphemer and an anti Christ!."
"Brazen anti Christ Mr. Anthony Provancher writes..."
Now to cite a verse of Gospel, not Paul, (that carries its own controversy in biblical scholarship): John 8:7 "When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
connie old girl, your behavior is the opposite of Christ's directive therefore you are rejecting the teaching of Christ, by definition that is apostasy. But that is between you and God who forgives all penitent sinners.
ole connie has 33 posts since 8:30AM or so yesterday, most of them hyper-capitalized, bold-faced invectives aimed towards another person, assaulting their character, calling them heretics, or worse, judging other people, etc. then she has the gall to quote Philippians: "My God supplies all my need,(Philippians 4:19}" fulling ignoring or intentionally overlooking Philippians 2:1-11 wherein Paul demands the absolute maximum humility towards all other persons, as the epitome of Christ-like behavior. Read those 33 or so posts and decide for yourself that she represents either Christ or is the epitome of apostasy. Outrageous infamy!
trying to quiet you down
like I said maxi, you try to refute science with ideology. Good luck, your extremist pals Marx, Lenin and Stalin tried that same strategy.
Remember the song with the line, "Say it ain't so, Joe (DiMaggio)."
maxi sez, "Time and again the whole climate change debate has been proven to be nothing more than a big guvment money grab." Yep, to hell with science ands its data, let's reduce it all to politics, or religious dogma, as if we can change reality.
z: yeah, yeah, yeah
I predict the next cartoon deals with the 9 year old assassin who killed her gun instructor with her UZI. Who is to blame for that? Who goes to jail? Does the girl get charged with manslaughter? her parents? the owner of the gun range? the deceased? Yes! let's blame it on him.
I guess it is just part of the price we pay for the right to bear (completely unnecessary) arms. I'm sure you'll figure a way to add it to your list on the President.
Jack, no it does not surprise me that you may dislike President Obama for any number of reasons.
However, you guys express something akin to hatred towards the man, my evidence is all the posts by timbo, you, some of Z-bister, of course connie, and others (et al). It is quite the challenge to buy your argument that just because he represents a watershed change in American politics AND is an African-American has no connection to your loathing and love for the house boys with white paint on their faces - an ironic reflection on the old vaudeville days when Caucasians had to play the part of people of African-American heritage.
