“..........and what do many evangelicals, especially in the south, believe in?
when you're RICH, you are blessed by god. if you're POOR, there is something wrong with you. hence, you deserve your lot in life. i suppose by their logic, paris hilton is blessed. and helping the poor is "anti-christian."
pope francis' stance on many catholic issues is the reason why i was proud to be catholic at one point. now, if only he would move quicker on the gay marriage rights issues and birth control, i would happily practice again.”

“It also might be nice some day for the Church to allow women to be fully functioning members of the Church: priests, cardinals, even Pope someday, way off in the future I'm afraid.”
“reagan started out as a democrat. he was even the president of the actors' UNION at one time.
however, he basically became a repub, when he started complaining about taxes and regulations for his "ranch" while living in california. taxes and fees that he can easily afford as a rich man.
he IS the ultimate repub. and THIS is your typical repub voter. upper middle class middle-aged white man who decided that he doesn't owe the rest of society anything. even if society helped them get there. greed and entitlement are subconsciously burned in their very psyche.”

“um... I totally agree, but Reagan was "middle-aged" in the 1950s.”

“Yep he was the prototype for modern day Republicans, selfish and self centered with an inflated sense of self importance.”

“Reagan and Kennedy believed in the same things for America”
“and then of course we have MILEY CYRUs, rihanna, the kardashians and disney princesses as role models for most of our american teens girls today.

“And Dr. James Barrie, who turned out to be a woman who dressed as a man for 40 years in order to be a doctor and made remarkable achievements as a surgeon general with the British army. Her original identity is still something of a mystery. Oh, and Christine de Pisan, first feminist novelist.”

“Another one is Mary Anning. An early 19th cent girl/woman who was a self educated paleontologist. Of course, the field did not exist then. She personally found the first icthyosaur, pleisiosaur, figured out what corpolites (dino poop) was and other things. She had all of her credit for her discoveries stolen from her by others, simply because she was "just a woman."”

“Might have been Woody Allen, actually I forget for sure who it was, but a noted comedy genius once said that comedy is the art of taking the ridiculous and turning it into sheer absurdity.
I don't care how the Farrelly's do it, but it seems to work so well.”

“i would agree............but macklemore and ryan luis just had 2 top singles recently and other songs in the top 40, and are independent musicians.”
Tom Hendricks on Nov 2, 2013 at 23:14:49
“OK but do you think either is getting the attention that these 5 are - or ever will?
If you want to support independent musicians, the first thing to do is oppose this mess. Help us musicians and support the 99.99% that are not one of these .”
