My point? Let's do a what if. Take your pick to which scenario you have thoughts about.
1. Obama wins a second term. What will he do? What effect will it have on our economy, freedoms, future?
2. Israel attacks Iran. What nations will jump in to defend Iran and what nations will jump in to defend Israel from repercussions? What "blowback" can we expect here at home? Do you think war will be conventional?
We had a long discussion about these issues at work today, people are talking about them among themselves but you don't see anything publicly. The responses I received were shocking. Let me hear your thoughts first.
I have tried to leave this open so anyone could post but several cowardly posts lately have made it necessary to add comment moderation. I do not want to restrict comments to only those with google addresses or members of this blog so I will be looking at each comment prior to it being posted.
If we could all agree to it being limited to people agreeing to be members, then we could try that, but I don't want to go that route without a concensus.
How does that go, repeat a lie often and loudly eventually everyone will believe it?
They have taken this filmmaker in for questioning just because of the outcry about his movie. The feds are considering whether or not he violated his probation and could send him back to jail.
ONLY because of the outcry of this movie. If the muslims had not rose up and the left use the movie as the blame, they would not have been talking to this man.
Regardless of whether you agree with the movie or find it in bad taste, it is Freedom of Speech that MUST be protected. If the Middle East practiced more freedom of speech themselves they might not have waited till this year to "gain" their freedom. Even though that freedom is lopsided and meant only for the straight muslim men.
Up front let me say, I am NOT religious in any way shape or form. Some might call me an atheist. But I have found atheists to be cultish in themselves and they go out of their way to abuse those practicing their 1st Amendment rights. As long as they can believe how they like, I feel I have my rights to believe how I like.
It's being called the "nuclear option" by some. That Obama's campaign
would actually attack Romney's Mormonism in an effort to turn the
evangelical voters against the GOP.
It has already begun in the left wing media with people like Bill Maher who calls Mormonism a cult. Of course Maher doesn't like any religion.
Washington Post writers D.T. Bell and Ryan Bell very snidely ask "whether Mormonism is a legitimate religion". As if any religion is any more legitimate than any other. In my view it's all about the membership LOL! If I can get 5 million people to join my cult, it suddenly becomes legitimate.
Would this be a bad move for Democrats? Considering they had to be convinced by a Catholic who they then helped get elected, it would be a hypocritical move, certainly.
And I believe it would backfire. After all, aren't democrats (little d) the most vocal supporters of Muslims? How could they support one religion over another?
"If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." Samuel Adams, 1776
Isn't it more important to be concerned with America succeeding? The success of one individual who is an employee of the American People is not near as important as the welfare of our nation and it's people. The American people deserve and have the right via the Constitution to the "pursuit of happiness". That is the right to succeed or fail on their own efforts, without any interference from the Federal Government.
The President, regardless of who is in the office at the time, is at best, a temporary employee and needs to remember who his boss is. US.
Post all you wish but foul comments will be deleted. If you can't get your point across without being disgusting then you are too ignorant to take up my space.
Which brings me to the second rule: don't be stupid.
