MarkB said... My personal beliefs on the issue of homosexuality. The bible teaches in at least 16 different verses that it is a sin. It is not a phobia

The Bible teaches a lot of acts man engage in are sin. Yet, those individuals who profess to live by its teachings the most, also breaks biblical rules and laws most often.

kenro said... This is called using the Lord's name in vain.

This is the sin.

Unfortunately, they will never see themselves in that picture as the ultimate SINNERS and hypocrites.

Reminds me of that phrase: A stairway to heaven and a crowded HIGHWAY TO HELL.

conservative said... Hmm, who is going to be the first to say "why does conservative always have to bring up the subject of religion and Homosexuals?"

I have an even better question: Why do conservative Christians claim to love a God they've never seen, yet conspire against and hate their neighbors they see on a daily basis? All HYPOCRITS?

Even the Christians God has asked that same question.

Gene O. Wagner, Jr. said: I am privileged to live in the greatest nation in the world!

A free nation that incarcerate more of its citizens than most any civilized developed country in the world. Even many developed dictator nations don't incarcerate as many of its citizens as America. That's not a privilege. That's an embarrassment. A SHAME.

RE: Two years ago, the city abolished health insurance benefits for retirees and some workers with 24 years of service,

RE: Where the heck were you 24 months ago when the city council voted to end health insurance for retiree that were promised that benefit, and had worked for 20 plus years?

So now the number of service years drops from 24 to 20 plus? Will the numbers keep dropping when false statements are challenged?

Again, were those individuals Medicare eligible or had switched for Medicare? These individuals take a small portion of a factual sentence then add several pages of lies, because they think the average person is too ignorant to think for themselves and ask questions.

I think the reason Republicans are doing everything they can to delay, even destroy, the ACA is because they realize the penalty part they demanded be included was written in a way that it can't be enforced. They wanted Americans to be penalized in such a way that they could lose their homes, cars, bank accounts and even freedom. So they were peed to discover creators of the ACA had pulled a switch right under their noses.

The creators of the ACA act wrote the penalty phase the Republicans demanded in such a way that no liens can be placed on property, bank accounts, vehicles or anything if failed to get insured. Republicans realized they'd been duped, hoodwinked, bamboozled and that didn't sit well with them. So they've pulled out all the weapons and then some to confuse and turn people against the ACA.

I read somewhere recently that even people on Medicaid against the ACA. They don't realize they don't have to buy in to it anyway. They already have government insurance coverage.

I think it's being untruthful and dishonest to say the city dumped its elderly workers from their insurance coverage who had 24 years of service. I think what happened, and the same happens in the private sector, is that those workers became eligible for Medicare. When a retired worker becomes eligible for Medicare, even in the private sector, Medicare becomes their primary insurance and if they decide to keep the company insurance, it becomes their secondary insurance. If the worker is responsible for paying all or part of their premiums in the private sector they may dump their private insurance policy altogether and opt for Medicare, the subsidize Medicare with a cheaper secondary police because Medicare premiums are usually cheaper. Either way, once an individual becomes eligible for Medicare and they take both Medicare parts A (A is automatic) and B (optional/the part of Medicare the client actually pays premiums on) they may opt out of company insurance if they're paying high premiums themselves. Or it's sometimes company policy to end benefits or become secondary when retiree becomes eligible for Medicare.

MyGen said...Government does not create jobs.

How do you explain TVA then? Without TVA, Chattanooga would be a gigantic fish bowl filled with water. I'm old enough to remember the floods and people paddling down Broad Street and other areas of Chattanooga in boats.

The Commander said... We as a nation abandoned capitalism almost a 100 years ago.

Which, under that system, really wasn't a bad idea, considering:

Capitalism can't exist without racism.--Malcolm X

Capitalism=exploitation=return-to-slavery. Granted, capitalism already exist and has always been a part of the American structure. However, with no control or balance, or protection for the average employee, employer greed would take over and exploitation would again become legal.

Bill Martin, USAF retired, you just gave the movie The Butler the best free advertisement and reason to go see it, it could have ever gotten. I really hadn't felt much one way or the other about the movie until now. I'll definitely go see the movie. A heartfelt THANKS!! ;)

btw- Why is it that some Americans actually believe they can go around the globe, creating chaos and wars in countries then claim the other side is so wrong because they fought back? Like Iraq and Afghanistan, there were atrocities committed in Vietnam against innocent Vietnamese women, men and children, that if committed by any other country other than the U.S. and its allies would have been up for war crime charges.

At the time, The NYT referred to Nixon's actions in Vietnam as a "War of Tantrum."* The Daily Mirror referred to his actions in Vietnam as "An act of insane ferocity, a crude exercise in the politics of terror."
