“You know an African American invented the traffic light, peanut butter, gas mask, elevator, and the list goes on. Not to mention when Hitler was bragging how Germans were superior above Americans that it was a black man (Jesse Owens) who won the 1936 Olympics for America. So your theory of the white male invented everything is ignorant.”

“Not ''everything'' Only those things which have advanced society in a way ''gas masks'' and ''elevators'' did not.
It is time past to end the foolish and quite racist theory that the white male is the cause of all of our problems when it is clear that he is not.”

“You know want in the 1930's alcohol was illegal is was declared a narcotic. Which alcohol is a drug, but then it became legal then and you had to be 21 to buy it. He should target the pharmaceutical companies who sell drugs that you can get high. I don't like alcohol but I'm not around the corner petitioning it to be illegal. So why should the medicinal shops get shut down? Because they're making more money than the local liquor store and pharmacy? Alcohol is more deadly than marijuana. Whether this guy likes it or not people are going to get what they want.”
“Obviously, you've never seen my generation where kids complain about their parents who provide for them, brag about getting arrested, get pregnant like it's the latest fashion trend, the school system have just made D a passing grade, and for sake they're getting more spoiled by the minute. Unless you live in this generation you don't know what I've seen.”

“(cont'd) sorry... that went on to long. As I was saying:
Yes, I'm lucky that my children are excellent, but that also has to do with the fact that I parent effectively.
Btw, a D has always been a passing grade. It's a cr@p grade for sure but it's passing.”

“I have a 19 year old daughter, so I'm pretty familiar with your generation. ;) I have been incredibly lucky, though. She's never really been in any trouble and there was never any period of her life when she wasn't a delightful human being. Really, I would suggest you not be so condescending. It isn't necessary to be a teen to be aware of what goes on with teens. My daughter combined with my youth and the proliferation of the internet which brings together people of all types has given me far more knowledge than you seem to think possible. When you hit your 30s, you'll be embarrassed if you remember telling someone with inarguably far more life experience that they don't know what you've seen. Not only have I seen it, but I have the benefit of my own experiences to contrast and expand my perceptions.
Yeah, I've seen those kids, the snotty brats who complain because they only got an iPhone4 for Christmas. I think that's a natural result of a generation of coddled, spoiled brats raising their own coddled, spoiled brats frankly. People bemoan the decline of modern society, pinning it down to anything they can, usually homosexuality and lack of religion, but I really think that's the biggest culprit. People who were raised by weak, sniveling parents, raising their kids with even fewer rules and less guidance. Yes, I'm lucky that my children are excellent, but that also has to do with the fact that I”
“You mean the ones who claimed the Native Americans and bought my ancestors restricting their rights because we were looked at as "animalistic heathens" ^_^ Oh yeah, that's the same white male.”

“Nonsense. You merely are stuck on past prejudicial hangups and forget that every single last one of the above inventions was unveiled to benefit all of humankind, and not merely ''white males'' or even ''Native Americans'', who continue to benefit from these inventions ushered in by a bunch of wasichus.”
“-.- They want more religious freedom? Are you kidding me? The word "God" is even in the pledge of allegiance. Churches get tax breaks, there are Christian book stores, they have a say in the governement, gay marriage is barely legal because of them, and the list goes on and on. Oh but they dare say they need more religous rights? Don't give them anymore rights we don't need another Inquisition.”

“Oh Kierra...there would never be an inquisition in this country. "There are Christian book stores"...Really? God forbid that we have stores where they sell books related to one of the world's largest religions...Are there no stores that sell books that are atheistic in their framework? I bet they do.”
“Oh, what does the Catholic church have to say about we atheists?! I really don't think they want to go there. After the Crusades and Inquisition I don't think they're god would be talking to them after all of that. Not to mention how nice it is for the Pope to pray for poor people while he's on top of his golden throne. Don't throwing stones you know that you will not catch if they're thrown back at you.”

“The ones who invented polio vaccines, open heart surgery, HIV medications, the telephone, the automobile, the skyscraper, central heat and air, refrigeration, the FDA, radial tires, penicillan, the computer, the microwave oven [ the electric and gas ovens themselves], the cure to sickle-cell anemia, advances in womens breast cancer, beer in cans, pasteurization processes in dairy product, malaria source -identification and treatment all saving hundreds of millions of lives worldwide?
Why are they a problem with others?”

“The bottom line is that religion is bunk... Humans have used it as a crutch for the weak minded for thousands of years. What saddens me is that we even deal with this nonsense today. Religion is very different from belief in God. See, one can believe in a higher power without a religious institution. However, a religious institution cannot exist without a bunch of manipulated people believing the nonsense they sell. God very well may exist, but every religion has gotten God wrong!”
“As Americans has it has it ever occurred to us that maybe we need to get off our arses and try to help our country and President too? The President can only do so much but the people we can do alot. He's trying to cover topics that Mitt Romney or McCain wouldn't even address for example education. Last time I checked getting a C in school was passing but parents would scold their kids about getting a C. Now if a child get a D in all subjects it's praised. I'm just saying before blaming Presidents for our financial crisis let's take a moment and look at ourselves. How about we increase our standards and work hard? Don't get me wrong America is still a great nation that even fought it's mother country for it's indepedence. But, come on looking back at the years we could have done better than what we are doing and that is by getting off our lazy butts and doing something to help our country. By the way I'm 17 and I'm telling you this.”

“"Last time I checked getting a C in school was passing but parents would scold their kids about getting a C. Now if a child get a D in all subjects it's praised. "
Huh? That directly contradicts itself. What point were you trying to make? I've never heard of anyone getting praised for all Ds in any case. Some man was just arrested because he pointed a gun at his daughter who, rather than bring home straight As, had a report card with mostly As and two Bs.”
“Something tells me that Rick, Sarah, and Mitt will try to run in the 2016 election race. Oh, how that moment will shame America.....”
Tavito on Jan 13, 2013 at 09:57:46
“You are 100% correct, but, remember...GOD told Rick and Sarah to be president of the USA, I suppose GOD could not decice which one, so, he told them both; perhaps GOD also sent the same message to Mitt, but, the attachement was lost in transit.”
“The Bible also says obey the law of the land. China's law is to not bring religion into the country. As it causes problems everywhere. In other words he disrespected his country by disobeying their orders and pressed his luck.”

“They have Christian Churches in China, but these are people trained by the American religious extremists to take radical actions against the government of China. I feel sympathy for the Pastor & his family - they've been suckered by the Dominionists as have so many others.”
