And just to clarify, I'm not saying that EVERYONE on public assistance abuses it. Some people legitimately cannot work. In that case, I'm for welfare 100%. It's just the people that are quite capable of working yet choose not to that upset me.
JohnnyRingo-- I beg to differ with you. In my profession, I see women coming in to cash welfare checks with their nails nicely done, their hair perfectly colored and cut, etc. while their children look hungry and very dirty. These same people could get up off their lazy butts and actually work for a living, but instead they choose to take money from the government, out of OUR pockets, and do nothing.
wareagleash --- this has to be one of my favorite Joe Biden stories so far, copied and pasted from Foxnews.com :
*** In a Sept. 22, 2008, CBS interview, Biden misspoke when he said Franklin D. Roosevelt was president when the stock market crashed in 1929.
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened," he said. Herbert Hoover -- not Roosevelt -- was president in 1929, and television had not yet been invented in 1929.***
chicken does sound good right now....and their biscuits? DELICIOUS!
How is that police brutality when you're dealing with about 1,000 disruptive, out of control people? It's stupid stuff like this that causes people to be trampled. It's pretty embarrassing that it happened in my hometown.
WOW aae1049, what a hater you are!
"I guess it is a forgivess issue, when they send our children to die for weapons of mass destruction that really did not exisit."
First of all, those soldiers chose to be in the military and I thank God for them. They knew the consequences of enlisting would be death, yet they chose to enlist. I am so incredibly proud of our military. They fight for our freedom. Yes, many died and are still dying. But lets talk about that for a second. Why is it NOT okay to kill terrorists, but it's completely accepted to kill millions of innocent babies by way of abortion? It's disgusting. At least the soldiers had a chance and a CHOICE to live. The double standard makes me sick.
samplegirl....that was an incredibly mature post. good job.
It amazes me that people are so offended by Jesus. If you don't believe in Him, that's fine. That's doesn't change the fact that He is not real and very much alive. He still died for you. You can say air and gravity are not real because you can't see them, but that does not change for one second the fact that they are surrounding us. We see the effects of it. As dakgivens said, one day every knee will bow to Him. As for now, all we as Christians can do is proclaim the truth. It's out there for nonbelievers to see and whether or not they grasp it is out of our hands. As for me, I cannot look at the sky without seeing God. I cannot breathe without thanking Him for the air He has given us. I cannot see the stars at night without wondering how far away Heaven actually is. I pray for each and every person on this board that has taken the name of God and His truth so lightly, that they will see God for who He truly is...not for the small box they have put Him in.
With this cartoon i think it is very disrespectful.
Some of this may be Bushs' fault but the housing market is on the democrats. It was McCain who said we needed to regulate it but people like Frank and Dodd said No it was fine and told McCain to back off. If we would have regulate it when McCain wanted to some of the problems would not be happening. So I think both parties are at fault
