“If Luke is correct. Matthew tells a different story. In fact, Jesus was probably born in Nazareth and not Bethlehem and the stories of his birth there were added later to place it in King David's birthplace. Just as the genealogies of his descent from David through both Mary and Joseph were added to establish the relationship with David. Of course, once it was determined that the father of Jesus was God and not Joseph, that genealogy became superfluous.”

“"once it was determined that the father of Jesus was God and not Joseph" ? Really it was determined,, how, DNA testing?
As all Gods chosen know Jesus was born of the flesh, he later became a teacher, a prophet (maybe) and a martyr in death. The "son of god"part came later when the Tanach was rewriiten to suit the christians”

“The reason "Government at the national level doesn't seem to work anymore," Mr. Pence, is because your party is doing everything it can to sabotage the American government. This is a Republican Party problem, not a Washington DC problem. When Republican governors, like Lamar Alexander, go to Washington they become just as obstructionist as every other Republican there.”

“Some Walmarts are becoming charities, soliciting food contributions for their employees who do not have enough money to give Thanksgiving dinners to their families. That's another way the public can help Walmart, in addition to the millions (perhaps billions) of dollars in welfare that goes to Walmart employees.”

“WalMart should be hammered with additional taxes for creating a welfare state. But since corporations rule the Republican world things will

“In my opinion, it's important that all GOP candidates stick to their principles, even if it means losing elections. Anyone who does not strictly adhere to the Tea Party must be purged from the GOP and left to join the Democrats, another political party, or become apolitical. In the long term, this strategy will result in electoral victory ... for the Democrats.”

“As the post clearly states, Obama was TRYING to mollify Republicans by implementing a Republican plan. The individual mandate was proposed by the Republican think tank, the Heritage Foundation, in 1989. The ACA is based on Romneycare, implemented by a Republican governor who stated that he saw it as a model for a national plan. (Though Romney now denies that, the statement is recorded.)

Despite everything Obama has done to ATTEMPT to mollify Republicans in going with a plan modeled on Republican ideas, they are trying to destroy it. That was the point of the post. Attempts to mollify Republicans are futile. It would have been better to go with a progressive plan (single payer) from the start.”
