“The buying of a home is the prowess of almost every American, that was not the "genesis".
When Congress in 1999 passed a law of where Banks did not have to be responsible for the Debt that is created in a Real Estate Transaction, that is what opened the doors for the fraudulent loans and 105+% Mortgages (the product) heavily commissioned to sell.
The Banks are their own worst enemy causing need for Regulation in their industry!”
“Everyone gives a bye to the "sappy", "snotty", "cynical", and "silly"; Grover Norquist who by way of his fraudulent Tax Pledge commandeers to this day 470+ Tea Party in Congress as each has learned that without Grover's financial help NONE of them hold a secure job.
This was the first time in US Gov. history that 470+ Tea Party in Congress signed up to honoring outside US Gov. interests in lieu of "we the people", the voting US citizen of America.
“Real Patriotic Constitutional abiding AMERICANS have had ENOUGH of the Dictator government of the Tea Party in U.S. Government; At Any Level!
ERADICATE THE TEA PARTY!”

“I see that you actually believe that you speak for the entire population. I am an independent and I can certainly tell you that I have more anger for you liberals than I have for the tea party. Not that I like them any more. So what part of the AMERICANS are you speaking for. Sure isn't me. I get sick of listening to people who seem to be so presumptuous that they feel they can speak for anybody. it is misleading and very dangerous.”
“Boehner and/or any of the Tea Party in Congress have agreed to even be seen with President Obama for the past 5 years. Only when they have boxed themselves into a corner has anything productive or beneficial to the "Anmerican people" been passed.
Boehner is implicite in his terminology. Boehner only wants to "conversate" with the President.
Never once has Boehner suggested or said that he would "negotiate" with the President.
The Tea Party in Congress only performs what the financiers of this current gov. SHUT DOWN allow them to , (the Koch Bro's, the wealthiest corporations, the 1% ultra wealthy.)
The POWER of the wealthy has been flexed and now they will avert Default that would not act in their Global Financial favor.
Boehner never has and NEVER will be a "Negotiator" He is only financed to be a "Conversator".”
“For decades, not just in the Catholic Church, but in most all denominations (America's right-wing political evangelists) pastors and clergy have spent countless hours and sermons siting the Law of Moses over and over about how LGBT is a disease of the mind, the cause of hurricanes (Katrina, Sandy) earthquakes one pastor even said that gay marriage is why N. Korea is going to nuke the US. All stating that being gay is THE most horrific, abdominal, sin this world has ever known. It still goes on today.
All preaching Old Covenant Law of Moses that ALL Christians are not held to due to the New Covenant of Grace through Christ Jesus.
What "sin" is greater than the Blood of Jesus? There is none!
The most certain thing ALL the above preached to the unbeliever and believer was how much hatred the Christian had for "sin". But did not preach the abundant Love, Truth and Grace that Christ Jesus has for the "sinner".
Jesus condemns no man! He is always Faithful. (especially when the Church Religions are not)”

“Yes it is true, Jesus condems no man, but He does condem the way man choses to live. He wants us all to adhere to his love and understanding. His word is clear, one must read past the parables of His word to get to His truths for our lives. There is only one way to Heaven and that is through Jesus.”
“I admit I do have a problem with the media falsely accusing President Obama for a poor economy. Sunni and Shiite have been killing each other for over 700 years, what do you think Syria is all about?
Norquist is the author of our thwarted economy since he gained power through Tea Party in Congress. Where have you been?
Because writers like Mr. Linkin continue to Spin against the President instead of addressing the real and blatant economic situations from foreign ideologies, and confuse the public with pop rhetoric. I will continue to call them out.”
LiteSleeper on Sep 20, 2013 at 02:49:52
“Norquist has nothing to do with Mr. Obama's proclivity for "Grand Bargains", nor did he have anything to do with Mr. Obama's decision to ignore Christina Romer and proceed with a too-small stimulus, nor does he have anything to do with Mr. Obama's decision to not hold any Wall Street criminal accountable for their all too easily proven frauds. These were all proactive decisions by Obama himself that have sabotaged his own presidency. Where have you been for the past 5 years? If you refuse to acknowledge the truth and blind your eyes to the things that Obama has done to his own presidency, then why should anyone take you seriously? What good is "calling them out" when you are not making yourself credible enough to even be listened to?”
“Making more laws is not the answer. Eradicating the sources that promote putting and keeping guns in the hands of the wrong people; Norquists Islamic influence but more importantly somehow making gun sales less profitable. Then there would not be need of additional laws but undoing the 50 years of gun promotion laws the NRA has plagued us with, all for profit reasons. These two things would make OUR country a lot safer.”
“Thank you Surfer Bob. First we have to eliminate the sources that promote putting and keeping guns in the hands of the wrong people. That in it's self is a huge effort because of how profitable the gun industry is. If that could be accomplished there probably wouldn't be a need for stronger gun laws of any sort. Other than undoing a lot of the laws passed from 50 years of NRA that make America a danger to it's self.”
“You should be called a Johnian. I know Jesus better than any religious believer on this planet and my knowing of him has nothing to do with religion. This planet connects us. We occasionally cross agendas in non-incarnated reality, the place you would probably refer to as the 'spiritual' world, but know nothing about. You are just a 'controlled' one.”
“Palestine is victim of Shiite and Sunni battles of control. The problem is where Grover Norquist hangs his turban as his wife is Palestinian Muslum Although Norquist is very proud of his Muslim religion as he has funded Radical Islam for the most of his life. Now he has incredible control of US Gov. due to his control over the Tea Party in Congress and many other powerful influences over US Gov. and Orgs. Mr. Linkins has chosen to chastise the President and completely turn his head away of the real problems in America brought by Grover Norquist and a Congress that takes its orders from a foreign ideology,”
LiteSleeper on Sep 18, 2013 at 16:18:30
“Ok, none of that is truthful or intelligent. Palestine is overwhelmingly Sunni and Christian. There is absolutely no "battle for control" taking place vis a vis Shiite Islam. Secondly, if Mr. Norquist has a Palestinian wife, it has no bearing on a discussion of bad US economic policies. That's just paranoid insanity and really a dirty, sad ad hominem attack. Lastly, Norquist is not even mentioned in this article and has nothing to do with Obama's lauding of deficit reduction at the expense of job creation, which was the entire point of Mr. Linkins' post. The whole point of the post is about the holistically backward economic priorities that Obama celebrates and doesn't seem to recognize are backward, in isolation from any Republican interference. Stop coming up with elaborate, paranoid, grandiose excuses and deal with valid criticism.”
“We have been waiting for this collision between Rand Paul, Cruz, Lee and the Libertine League of the South type ideology VS. Palestinian Shiite Muslim ideology of Grover Norquist who has had complete control of the Tea Party in Congress until this past February when he upped the ante on his bogus Tax Pledge and turned it into a "covenant relationship till death".
Paul and his anti-gov., anti-military posse lied low for years under the umbrella of Grover's Tax Pledge as both had the same basic objectives of ending US Gov, through it's economy and use US Constitutional Laws against OUR government. (Always a Radical Islam tactic)
This division in the Tea Party in Congress is finally now manifesting as we have long awaited.
It's like they all will sit at a round table and start shooting at each other.”
“LOL! "... it ..." You would actually bend and give me ONE LAW? LOL!!
As my comment clearly indicates a deeper disease to be Eradicated.”

“I did not say "one law". I said any gun control. I am not implying that gun control cannot help. If we were to ban all guns and do a house to house sweep, I think gun crimes would go down. It would also be unconstitutional. I was only asking for the set of gun control regulations that you thought might be effective somewhere in the range from where we are now to total banning of firearms.”

“I think it is a great question. He doesn't mean you can only have one ever, he just wants you to pick the one thing you think would be most effective. You can discuss others, but which one would be most effective?”
“MCNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX; none of these so-called "news agencies" won't touch anything about Grover Norquist. They, along with Mr. Linkins give Grover a Pass and have forgotten his 25 year continual support of Radical Islam.”
John 3:16,17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
As always Phil, the "choice" of eternal life or eternal death is yours to make. But God loves you no matter what choice you make.”

“I have always existed and will always exist. I live forever wherever I choose to be. There's no such thing as judgment. Your vicious and controlling hierarchy god doesn't exist. Jesus despises John for lying about him. Your god isn't capable of love, so its good he doesn't exist. Your religion is only about control. You don't ever get to control me or any other aware beings. Awareness always prevails, belief always fails.”
“Mr. Linkins is finally noticing the effects of the Tea Party in Congress under the dictatorship of Palestinian Shiite Muslim; Grover Norquist, who has taken the mantle of Bin Laden to defeat America through it's economy.
Norquist through the Tea Party in Congress has had his foot firmly planted on the Economic neck of Uncle Sam since before 2010. This has been common knowledge. Mr. Linkins chooses to support these anti-American, Brotherhood based Tea Party in Congress tactics.
Mr. Linkins has chosen to side against the American people and the US Gov. with ant-American propaganda articles like this.
ERADICATE ALL TEA PARTY IN Congress.”

“Your statements make no sense. Palestinians are not Shiites for one. For two, no one in their right mind would equate criticism of Obama as somehow anti-American. If you want to be taken seriously, it would help if you would make serious, logical comments.”
