After 3 friggin years, during your re-election campaign you end the Iraqi war and expect applause!? HELL NO!
If i'm not mistaken i voted for ya to end the damn war on day 1 of your Presidency! And you coordinate the announcement of our Troop pull out to coincide with your giving Taxpayer dollars to move Fisker automotive jobs to Findland?! Oh HELL NO!
Today's story in the Tampa Tribune quoting the Washington Post (http://www2.tbo.com/news/news/2011/oct/21/menewso1-rubios-cuba-history-changes-ar-273568/) tells us that the darling of the Koch brothers and the Pee Tardiers is a liar and a hypocrite.
After Herman Cain laid down the latest line of Kochcain on the red Mirror of America with his statement that the unemployed only have themselves to blame, Senate Republicans proved they were snorting the Kock by preventing 400,000 police, fireman and teachers from achieving gainful employment by filibustering the funds needed to secure their jobs.
Clearly it is their fault that the United State Senate Republicans won't fund their jobs. They are clearly awful and lazy people.
At some point in history mankind got tired of Kings, Emperors, and anyone else who claimed They were the Path to God or actually God Himself.
The political movement was recorded as the story of Jesus.
It was a movement to depose men as Gods ( herod, ceasar) played out in a culture influenced by the old testament ( which was actually an earlier Jewish societal document of no Divine origin, but at that time had been raised to the level of holiness much as the bible had been in our history and as the mormon fable is attempting to do in modern times)
Thomm, you are correct that your commentary concerning the scientific method's allowance for a spiritual aspect is going to illicit a response.
I understand that the need to connect one's self to the divine is a strong force in human nature.
Your self worth being the value that you associate yourself with. Needing to be special and important, we often refuse to let go of those imperatives in the face of reality.
Yet only by doing so can you hope to see beyond the veil of human faults and sins to observe the real magic beyond the human concept of " I "
Obamma killed his own CLASS ACT which is a significant part of his health reform. Without the CLASS ACT, the entire reform needs to be repealed since CLASS was the a big part of making the reform revenue neutral. It alone was responsible for 40% of the savings. Now we will just have a very expensive health reform that will tank the government into further deficits.
Sadly, Bernie didn't hit the nail on the head with this caller's question and in this case both the anvil and head are very large. The answer is we have to start paying the true cost for goods and services. Everything has a cost and we cannot afford these short cuts any longer. Costs associated with green production will be more expensive, but we will learn to CONSERVE, recycle and repurpose in response.
