    I'm sorry, this guy seriously pissed me off, so if you don't mind, I'm going to rant. If you mind, I'm sorry...just don't read what I have to say.

    1) Having actually read Thomas Paine, a guy I consider one of my personal heroes, I find this guy pretty insulting.

    2) There are dozens of nations that are multicultural. Canada has two national languages, French and English. China has Cantonese and Mandarin. Switzerland has German, French, and Italian. Most African nations have citizens who speak French, English, German and their local languages. Yugoslavia, Russia, India, Iran, and Brazil all have multicultural histories. That’s not to say that I’m in favor of Spanish being included as a national language of the United States. But it wouldn’t hurt anything. By the way…English IS the national language of the USA. Or have we all been speaking Swahili all this time?

    3) This country was founded upon diversity. Prior to the Revolution, if you asked Thomas Jefferson what country he came from he would have said he came from Virginia. Each colony was entirely different, with different cultures, peoples, national and ethic origins, and different religions.

    4) If you’re not in favor of universal single payer health care then you’re either don’t know the facts, work for an HMO, or you’re a masochist. When getting sick is the number 1 cause of bankruptcy in America while health insurance companies are making record profits, then we’ve got a problem.

    5) Our entitlement programs are the only thing on the government books that are in the black. Our infrastructure has been ignored since the Reagan years. It went to waste in order to give the wealthiest one 10th of 1% Americans a 75% tax cut. Then people wonder why we’re 9 trillion dollars in debt. Go figure. If you wanna know why we have bridges that are collapsing all you gotta do is google “Grover Norquist” and “bathtub”.

    6) We wouldn’t have illegal aliens here if companies weren’t hiring them. Put the CEOs who hire illegals in jail and dissolve their companies, and you’ll have 20 million illegals running back to Mexico, hoping we haven’t finished working on that Berlin Wall we’re building on the Rio Grande.

    7) If you want to protect Israel, then you keep giving money to Egypt. If you want to curb terrorism, then you keep giving money to Egypt. It’s a good investment. We should give more. If you want Israel to have another enemy, then stop giving money to Egypt.

    8) We don’t need to import anyone for our high tech industry. Unemployment in the tech field is running at 12% last I looked. The ONLY reason why we give people H1B visas is to pay high tech workers cheaper wages.

    9) Jefferson intentionally put the word “Creator” in the Declaration of Independence, so it would not be Christian. This is why the words “Nature’s God” is included as well, as opposed to the “Christian God”. The Constitution expressedly prohibits any law that establishes a religion. That means all public life is to be religion-free. Anything otherwise is a direct violation of the rights of all those who choose not to believe in the particular favored deity. And if you don't think Jefferson was a Deist, pick up a copy of the Jefferson bible.

    10) In 1776 the progressives were George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and THOMAS PAINE. The moderates were John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and John Adams. The people who opposed them were not called traitors. They were called LOYALISTS….as in LOYAL TO THE BRITISH CROWN.

    11) The Congressional switch board number used to be 1-866-SOB-U-SOB. Seriously. SOB stood for Senate Office Building. When a progressive talk show host, Thom Hartmann, got people to start calling on a regular basis, they shut it down.

    If you think calling your representative is going to do something, keep dreaming. Representative government is an out-moded idea, and it just don’t work no more. The only way to fix things is to form a direct democracy to keep the representative government in check.

    Check this out on how to get that done, if you're so inclined.

    Guess he made too much sense.

    Where is it written I need to buy you your healthcare? You also seem to neglect the illegals that are on welfare, food stamps, part of MS-13, involved in identity theft not to mention in prison and in general a drain on the country. Deport them all, make the penalities draconian enough on employers to eliminate illegals at the workplace.

    Your point on Jefferson is exactly the point of the video. They didn't wave a mexican flag in a demonstration or speak a foreign language they were american.

    Ahhhhhh, the 'ol number #9 trick.

    Not being confrontational or rude, but the idea that Jefferson was agnostic, atheist, non-Christian, etc.... that has been blathered over the years is completely false and his wordings when it came to the "Creator" was specific to the time frame and the revolution that was also taking place in the church.

    There was no Church of England, which the founding father's only issue was a 'nation' religion. Research the church of the day and it's dictates vs the revolution of the thinking's and writings of Martin Luther, and you will see a devoutly Christian Jefferson and understand his disdain with the direction that the churches were going.

    As far as 'all' public life being Christian free is a fallacy as well.

    Socialized health care is "SOCIALISM." Socialism is a pretty name for "COMMUNISM." Let's not mince words here. If people weren't up to their arm pits for all the toys with their A.R.M.S. coming mature, there wouldn't be the problem. Screw'em.

    John Adams: More research needed there as well. John Adams was certainly NOT a "moderate." Adams was pushing for revolution for almost a year after Concord and Lexington until the Declaration was finally drafted and adopted. In fact, Adams had pushed so hard in the regards of separation, that when he wanted to propose it in the congress, it was decided that someone else need do it because if Adams proposed, it would have been voted down merely because it was his personal agenda.

    Diversity was a basic to the walks of life, bonded by a common language. Not the diversity that the moderns have re-written history and have those thinking that don't know or understand they heritage of this country. The basic pilgrim to the America's was indeed of English decent. The diversity came much later. English was then the language. That is why, especially in the East and especially during the Ellis Island period, is why in New York and other Eastern cities, there were the Pols, Italian, German etc... neighborhoods that came together. Many families, friends and family of mine, strictly forbade that anything BUT english be spoken by the children.

    But more importantly, when it comes to government, here is what the representatives and the people have forgotten:

    "...That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,..." (It's from a little document that got all of this going.)

    I suggest that folks that are interested in the REAL American history, get off of the internet and read the history books that have not been influenced by the re-writing of history.

    Or as so eloquently stated by Benjamin Franklin, "If we do not hang together, surely we will all hang separately!"

    Well here I go. I don't want to pay for anyone's health care. Get a job and buy your own or get it from your employer. If you want to speak another language at home fine, but speak english when at work or out in public. Don't give a free check to anyone regardless of your race, national origin, or how many kids you spit out while sitting on your ass. As for bankruptcy, don't buy more than you can pay for. Don't think that you can pay for it later, or well I will just file and all will go away. Credit is too easy to get. People piss and moan about they are taking way my car, house, boat, RV, etc., well DA don't buy it. If you can't pay for it then it's not yours. I saw a show yesterday where people were given $10,000 to redo a house so that they might be able to keep it. In the driveway was a dang motorhome that was worth more than I gave for my house. Crap, sell that thing and don't worry. I know I will catch it for this post, but hey, tuff. That is the way I feel. And yes I am from Arkansas and no I did not marry my sister, and no I am not stupid. Redneck, yes I am, but everyone has or should have a little in them. LOL
  9. First Amendment Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Pretty damn simple.

    Health care...we are already paying the bill every time someone without insurance walks into an ER. It either raises the price of medical treatment throughout the hospitals to offset losses which also raises our premiums to offset the higher prices, or gets picked up my local, state, federal assistance to those hospitals...which translates to local, state, federal taxes.

    I will NOT vote to continue with the same lying,corrupt,country wrecking,draft dodging, my way or the hyway bunch that has had control over things (the "neocons") Look what "the right" did when they had the power to do whatever they wanted. If you can't see it, don't understand it, or don't believe it, then you are a dumbass! Look at a simple line graph that shows the movement of this nation's debt, and one for deficit over time. You will see that the real nose dives (the kind we get stuck with for generations) are during the republican administrations. If you allow yourself to have lies become the truth just because they are repeated over and over, once again, you are a dumb ass. "just drill more and we'll be energy independant" That's the biggy today. BULL!! Get the facts!! AND- a society needs SOME socialism in it! The military is an example(fits the definition),so do non-volunteer fire depts.,police forces, state prisons,state mental health institutions, our national highway system, most city streets and water systems, anything that is "chipped in for" by the masses. If I never drive on the street in front of your house, why do you expect me to give something for its repair? If I choose to never leave my house, why should a dime of my money go to maintain a highway that YOU use? I don't have kids in school, why should I pay for schools, or contribute to colleges? "get off your butt, go to work and pay for your OWN street" Right? I choose to be a fly in the Dem's ointment. Why should "that side" ever listen to those who only harshly ridicule? I don't believe in the divinity of Jesus (BLASPHAMY!),but he was a great teacher who taught THE GOLDEN RULE. I try my best to live by it which makes me a much better Christian than a lot of the "preachers" out there. John M. is on my tube right now, telling me what a great guy Dick Chaney is. Sorry, not to me. I'm NOT a big fan of Obama. I think there were many other choices that were better. I used to like John M., but he has learned he must play the right's game completely in order to get past their primary. I am a "Cold dead hands", English only, as little welfare as posible, "gut shoot 'em at the border", don't run from the cops, too many "special rights already" DEMOCRAT!!! Sorry (not really) to rant, but ignorance can become annoying. "They" are much more likely to listen to me about gun rights than to someone who sounds like they wish "they" would all just die. Show "them" what happened to crime and gun violence in England when handguns were banned. This will be much more productive than sitting back and calling Obama a terrorist. Both partys seem to be f---d-up. I think that the Reps are just as likely to take your firearms as the Dems. The Dems will try to do it thru legislation under the guise of reducing crime or whatever bogus thing. The Reps will claim some national emergency/terrorist threat, whatever. They can have my guns, when I'm dead or I've run out of ammo!!!
  11. Yep. I agree overall with several things you said. It is mostly just common sense, if there is such a thing.

    Something that's been on my mind I hate to say....this old arguement about seperation of church from state and how Christianity should be the national religion. Usually it's my observation that the same people who want Christianity inside our government, or associated with it, are often the people against national healthcare, welfare programs, government assistance, etc.

    If Christ had any one messege, it was to give to the poor. Everyone knows it too. But that is not what political Christians are saying. Why should they be taken seriously? It's too easy to blame the poor for being poor and make excuses why to keep our money. Christians who do not want to give to the poor? According to Christ you are not among him then. It is written in black and white.

    If you are trying to force your religion onto a nation, you should make sure first you are absolutely setting the example first.

    For the record, I am against ANY religion being involved with government. And I'm against social programs for a whole list of reasons, including the more you depend on from the government for materials then the more you surrender to that government in the intangibles.

    OK tell me how that doesn't apply to W. Clinton? Biden? Obama? I can't think of one of those statements that doesn't apply to each.

    With all respect,

    This is where those that don't understand the foundation that was drafted miss the deeper issue and what it is all about. It isn't about a "national" religion which was what was in England....The Church of England. They (the constitutional framers) didn't want to be told what church they could attend.

    The concept that God cannot be thanked in a public setting because of being in a school, government office etc.... is absurd and not the intention of the amendment.

    To say that Judeo-Christian principles were not at the foundation of this nation is to rely upon the re-writing of history instead of education oneself in the foundations.

  15. Much truth in your post.

    About God in public...this is deeper than can be fully explained in a forum. That is an entire book and subject to an arguement with many sides.

    The one thing I can say about it that you may agree on is we are a nation mostly divided on the issue by (a) those who are comfortable with God or some higher power in their lives, and (b) those who are not humble enough to want a God or are holding a belief that they are in control and do not need a higher power. Category (b) would be those more likely offended by prayer in public etc etc etc.

    I predict this issue will get worse before better. I also believe, well I know, that a people will not be humble enough to let a higher power have control until they are made humble. A century of prospering has made our society far from humble. So here we are; people pissing into the wind and telling each other it's just raining again.
