“Yes we can !!! The entire U.S. government is out of control, especially financially !!! Approaching $17 trillion in debt with no end in sight. Time to stop the madness in Washington.”

“All spending bills are written & voted into existence under the HOUSE.”

“says the more on who has NO IDEA what they are talking about. Remember this....it is CONGRESS that authorizes the spending and it is CONGRESS that can reduce the spending any time they want. But the GOP would NOT touch Defense or the BILLIONS paid in Corporate Welfare to groups like the Oil Companies who make BILLIONS in profit every single quarter.
The Congress has tried to pass the buck and blame the President but even Ronald Reagan blamed the GOP congress when they threatened him...of course after he went on TV they did not threaten him a second time and he got what he wanted.”
“Chalk another one up to the fine handling by police and so-called "mental" experts. Alexis was a walking time bomb ... tick, tick, tick ... and no one cared to do the proper thing.”

“Maybe YOU can answer this then - why didn't his mother/family do something? His mother could've had him committed - and yet she didn't.”

“The problem is that laws are written in such a way as to make it almost impossible to access care for the severely mentally ill even when family members ask for and seek it for their loved one, even when the person who is ill has enough insight to know that he or she is in the downward spiral known as "decompensation"--which can happen when a person stops taking meds (sometimes because he or she can't afford them) or sometimes when the medication dosages are lowered, or because for some reason they stop being as effective in relieving the symptoms--the voices, the hallucinations, the paranoia. In this case this man told the police about his symptoms. They should have intervened and gotten him to a hospital ASAP. But police need training in how to deal with mental health emergencies of that nature. Because society refuses to face this issue, police are the first responders when a person experiences a breakdown. This is a MEDICAL problem. Why can't we deal with it as such? This latest shooting rampage did not need to happen. We are all guilty of this crime. I am sick of seeing this happen again and again.”

“The "Navy officials" who "did nothing" are really the ones who bear a lot of the responsibility, here. They ignored numerous red flags.”
“Obsession are issues of the time ? I get the impression this "pope" just wants to turn a blind eye on such. Jesus covered many areas in his short ministry to get people to 'wake up' what is good and what is evil - in the eyes of God. What God says - the last word.”
“All have a purpose ... and all have a choice. Make the best and choose wisely as that is all what you will be held accountable for.”

“If there is a God, I would hope that he puts more stock into who I am as a person and what I do with my life than whether I believe he exists. IMO, the notion that I would need to believe in the existence of God to enter into heaven seems to attribute the quality of arrogance to God. I don't find such a quality particularly appealing.”
“Hope Stephen figures out - God doesn't need Stephen Hawking, but Stephen Hawking needs God, and His Son, as do all. The one fact of life itself !”
Peach Pickle on Apr 18, 2013 at 17:34:54
“As a Christian I disagree. Christ is a choice. You either believe in him or you don't. As a Christian you should know this. If Mr. Hawking does not believe in my God then that is his choice. One day he may have faith but that does not necessarily mean it will by my God that he chooses.”

“And Stephen Jay Gould answers OneWay. In science,.. (Bronowski said science IS knowledge),,"fact" can only mean "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent." I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.”

“You are absurdly ridiculous. Why do Christians always simply ASSUME that everyone believes the bible is the word of god? It is obviously, the words of men. Period.”
“Homosexuality has been around for centuries; it is nothing new. Mankind can go as far as it wants to, but if God doesn't approve, it will never be right. Pretty simple.”
robertaruth on Mar 26, 2013 at 21:27:36
“Simple to you, maybe, but not everyone believes in or cares about your version of your so-called God's "approval," He didn't write the U. S. Constitution, so in this matter the U.S. Supreme Court's approval is what counts.”
“God is not about "religion". God is about Life and real Love. As for eternity, it is very long ... it's endless !”

“Blah blah blah. Every comment you write is the same babel.
You do realize that all you are doing is turning off with your preaching.
No one listens to you. Everyone condemns you. You write like you are King James. Knock it off. You will never reach anyone this way.”
cohnwrithe1 on Mar 26, 2013 at 20:45:05
“Wrong. Like most of the bible, Christians are always misinterpreting what it means. Eternity is defined as "lasting an age."”
“God is not a "delusion". You are here because of God. It's your life and decision. But OnlyTheTruthPlz is correct. Each of us has a choice, so choosing wisely is very valid advice.”

“your god is a delusion unless you can provide evidence. and if you can not provide evidence your god has no place in politics. I'm not interested in your conversion tactics nor am I petrified of an eternal damnation I don't believe exists. So until god himself comes down and starts declaring law in person, he is irrelevant and so is any argument that uses him or his religion as a base. ”
“God and Jesus love all, but they both do not approve of "sin". That's where the line is drawn. Who defines sin ? God; not any man or any court established by man. God and Jesus have told us to live 'holy' lives. Who defines 'holy' ? Yes, that was a rhetorical question.”

“Do you kill everyone you come across who wears a cotton/poly blend?
If not, you are not a bible-believing Christian.
Keep your religion in your church and away from the lives of people who do not go to your hellhole....er....church.”
JSiobhan on Mar 26, 2013 at 20:56:06
“Religions define sin and government define laws. But the definition of sin has evolved over the years even for religions. Anyone who was against the Catholic Church or the Church of England was considered a heretic. Galileo was persecuted for discovering the earth revolves around the sun. Our country has had a horrific history of killing people by labeling them as godless witches. The Bible was used to justify slavery, segregation and the ban of marriage for interracial couples. But "God sins" are determined by human beings believing in varieity faiths. No faith has exclusivity to the definition of "Holy" unless it is your own.
Each religion should decide whoever they want to marry in their churches. But marriage in our society has also been defined as a legal relationship. That is the question before the court.”
Utopian Sky on Mar 26, 2013 at 20:54:49
“So, you should stop your sinful judgement, your sinful casting of stones, and your sinful hypocracy of focusing on the mote in your brothers eye instead of the beam of your own.
None of this has anything to do with the legal recognition of same sex marriages in this secular nation with freedom of religion and a separation of church and state.”
d1anaw on Mar 26, 2013 at 20:48:54
“So it's a "sin" to be non-white? Interesting,considering Jesus could not have been "white" given his home of birth and residence during his life. Allegedly all humans are created in "God's image" and "God makes no mistakes", so how do you explain all those gay people and muslims, jews, black, asians, hispanics, etc? Again, it's a "sin" to be any of those things? And who the hell died and left you to speak for what "God" considers a "sin"?”

“Not everyone believes in your god. Those of us who don't are not bound by his rules.”

“Look, I am not xtian and I never will be. What you are talking about is sharia law, aka theocracy. This is NOT a theocracy and religion has NO place in civil rights. End of story.
If you wish to believe in sin, you are more than welcome to do so but STOP pushing your beliefs on to those who do NOT share them. See, that's easy.”

“Do you also research what you believe in?
The Bible has over 1200 Errors and Contradictions in it.
The Bible has over 30 books missing for it.
And there are over 30 other God stories that have the same story as Jesus but were written about 1500-3000 years before your Bible.
Try researching "Other Gods Like Jesus" and see what you find.”
