“I agree with you Williams. While I have no interest in the young lady I had to read this because I couldn't believe that her swearing like a billion other people yesterday was highlighted in the heading. Really?
Oh noooooes, she swore?! Surely the first sign of the end of days.....le sigh.”
“Vermin they may be but why would you choose to let them off the hook by killing them rather than making them spend their lives in jail? It costs more to kill someone in a state run execution than it does to keep them locked up, without freedom, for the rest of their lives.”
“Larry, I've never said I wasn't a deist, I said I don't accept your version of God and I certainly don't accept that anyone goes to "hell".
As long as you don't evangelize to those who have no interest or try to control secular society with your beliefs being made into laws there's no problem at all with you believing what you do. Well, at least the parts you've shared here ;o)”
“Look, Larry, this sort of thing doesn't even begin to convince me to align myself with your religion or belief system. I refuse to believe that any God would be lesser than I by being more violent, vengeful and petty than I could be in my worst moments.
Your evidence suggests that your version of God is basically that of a high school bully with psychopathic tendencies. Thanks but no thanks, I'll take my chances on "judgment day" should it come.”

“I am sorry you see it this way but God gave us freedom to reject Him or love Him,He did not make us robots and He actually says that He wants to reconcile with man, if we come and repent and follow Him that is, what is wrong with that ?
No you do not understand it at all, God sends no one to Hell they chose that path, and it actually grieves God to see that happen!”
“Every atheist I've ever know became one though attending church and general hypocrisy of so many people who follow a religion. No one I've ever met became one because of getting an education that included evolution.”

“No many atheists became atheists because from childhood they were indoctrinated ,that stuff about hypocrisy will not cut it, we all stand alone on judgement day!”

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse -Genesis 12:3.
According to the Torah and the Christian Old Testament, the above is a covenant God made with Abraham upon promising to turn his descendants into a great nation. In some religious circles, it is believed to mean those who support God's people through Israel will be blessed while those who go against God's people will have tragedy befall them. The below is a series of events where the United States went against Israeli interests only to be the victim of tragedy caused by natural disasters.”
“So, ESVAFF, you are predicting the same shenanigans from the right there too? Quite tragic considering the lessons they should have learned from the last debacle with the government shut down.”

“Do you know anything of our state politics? The Congressional Republicans are not the same people as in our state. That's why I said "any major, controversial legislation." In other words, they aren't going to pass any radical liberal legislation just because there is a democratic governor. An example would be a gun and/or magazine restriction. Other than big stuff like that, our representatives tend to get along. Learn how to read in context.”
“Chief, doesn't it worry you at all that you find yourself counting on the voters having short memories when it comes to the government shut down but them having long memories on other issues?
I think the reality will be all political parties will be talking this to death in political ads and speeches, refreshing memories daily.”

“Since I will retire in few short years and will continue to have access to Tri-Care I am very thankful. What worries me are millions of people that believe the government needs to take care if them. Good conservative values have been overshadowed by the overwhelming belief in entitlement.
The best we ever we're is when families took care of individuals, neighbors took care of families, communities took care of neighborhoods, states took care of communities and ultimately the federal government took care of the states.
When we moved from that model we saw the deterioration of those units.”

“Bless your heart, Michael, as a journalist you should have been able to do better than trying to make our finding fault with the press' behaviour into an insult like saying me who expect better behaviour. I loathe Ford but I'm still a fan of good manners and don't think they should be abandoned for what was obviously a fool's game this morning.”

“I loathe the little toad of a mayor but, if I were him (shudder), I'd also not want the equally loathsome press in my driveway and getting in my personal space. If they were on the sidewalk, fine, snap a billion photos of the same thing and yell out all the questions you want.”
