“Creating a portrait with the aid of a computer program, that is so technically fine tuned so as to look exactly like the photo, seems pointles to me. But what do I know?”

“A paintbrush does not make you a master artist or give you the ability to paint the Mona Lisa any more than a fine tuned computer program can. If you yourself can make hyper-realistic portraits with this program, then we will talk.”

“The artist can do the same with paint. The computer did not aid the talent it took to create.”

“exactly what I was thinking! why not just find a photo of somebody, right click and save!”
“there are plenty of secular charities.This smacks of sensationalism, publicity stunts.
In this politically corrected world where every "group" can cry out against some percieved insult, why are Chrisitans allowed to insulted by everyone?”

“Because they insult everyone who isn't them?”

“AGREE! It is daily that secular organizations say "leave God out", and it's not a problem. Even our military chaplains have been told to leave out Jesus. For a Christian organization to operate in principals of their faith is not evil. And yes, there are secular charities all over the place. This is indeed sensationalsm.”

“I rather think it would be nice if we could all act like adults and work together. Had the Christian group worked with the atheists there wouldn't be the sensationalism you speak of, now would there? Each group might find out that people from the other group aren't so bad after all. Think about it. WWJD?”

“Free speech. We atheists are insulted all the time.”

“Given that you appear to be opposed to allowing government agents to use deadly force without first allowing for due process, how do you feel about cops carrying guns and using them when they feel that their own lives or the lives of others are threatened?
Is that also unconstitutional, or do they get a pass?”

“You mean you robbed the govt by taking some or all of your S Corp profit as a distribution on your Sched E, so you wouldn't have to pay Social Security and Medicare on the profit.................WOW, you are using all the loopholes, aren't you, while telling others to send money to the govt. With my business, rental property, and a land sale, I paid $104,000, last year.”
“Bill Clinton did not pull the Democrats to the center. The voters did. The mid term elections of Clinton's first term the voters moved Congress to the right, making Gingrich the speaker, resulting in the Contract with America and the reforms and budget restraints that came with the Country's shift to center. Bill went along for the ride, and is able to claim the budget surplus was all his doing, when in reality a congress of both parties, willing to work together, and a rebounding economy created the budget surplus.”

“Not exactly. Republicans shut down the government to try and eviscerate Medicare, much as they are doing now, and paid a steep and heavy political price in 1996 and 1998.”
“Show business (including fake new shows) is a cutthroat business. People get fired all the time. Good Luck Ann. And who cares Angelina. You're not that important that the producers of Today can't finde some other self imporant person to go on the show and talk up their cause.”
“Is there any chance we could focus on the real issues here? The economy, jobs, massive debt, the mortgage crisis,bloated government... and let this trivia take care of itself.”

“Discrimination and civil rights have always been of extreme importance of the USA, and always will be. We fought the bloodiest war in our history over it. In fact, this is the reason our country even exists!
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Ever read that? Try telling all the soldiers that have died since the Revolutionary War that what they were fighting for, what they were willing to die for, was trivial.”

“I can't believe that you consider child molestation to be a trivial matter! I know of several instances of boys being molested by Scout leaders, which is why I never allowed my son to join that group. This is certainly not "trivia" and it will never "take care of itself"!”

“Not when there is a chance to pander to the left and use it as good camoflage for both of these presidential yo-yo's to avoid the real issues.”
“In South Florida, it is widely known that there was massive corruption in the driver's license Bureau for a number of years. Coupled with "Motor Voter" programs, illegal Immigrants were able to buy the right to vote, along with their driver's license. The result is that in order to renew your licens, you must prove your identity. Surprise! Voter registration is an acceptible form of ID. nothing accomplished”
“This is another example of the down fall of The United Sates of America. This woman has some authority, and an opinion that the song "might offend other cultures".Her opinion must be accepted or you'll be labeled a bigot or racist.
Ms Hawkins, you miss the point. All immigrants come to this country for the American way of life and are allowed to keep their cultural identity AND be proud to be an AMERICAN too!”
“This is the first example of Democrats only talking about the amount of money spent on the election, iplying tha money wasted on advertising effects how people voted, the issues be damned.
The election can only be bought when you pay people at the polls, and you still don't really know...Also, when the Dems out spend the Reps, that's okay. If the presidential election were held tomorrow, most people would know how they're going to vote.”

“The issue here is not about abortion. If a woman wants an abortion, fine she chose to have unprotected sex and will deal with the consequences. Just don't expect me to pay for it.
I am a pro choice Republican, though when I was single, my choice was to take steps to avoid pregnancy. The Fed needs to step away from this issue. Will the Health plan cover breast implants or face lifts? It should not. Same issue really.”
