Re: Obama to EU: We will do our part

No, Dems DON'T live off the production of others but the rightwing nuts on here claim that we do.  THAT is what Don is referring to.

Re: Obama to EU: We will do our part

I don't have time to find the actual quote, but what pops to mind is something along the lines of this (paraphrasing here, as I don't remember the exact words).

 

Followers of me (Jesus) will be known by the fruit they bear, not by the words of their tongue.

I might also add, that I don't recall him saying you had to go to Church every Sunday (that was more from the times many were illiterate, and they gathered so someone could 'read' to them).  What he went on and on about was the purity in one's heart, and the treatment of others.  He has said his greatest command was for humans to 'love one another'.  If you follow that #1 rule, you are probably closer to his true teachings than you think.

Re: Obama to EU: We will do our part

I kinda figured that.

'bart, you used to be a teacher, didn't you?

Can you tell me if I remember this right from History class?

Was it the Communists, Socialists, or Facists who used to say something like this:

 

From those according to thier means,

to those according to their needs.

 

Or something along those lines.  I thought that might be what Mr Kraft was referring to?

Re: Obama to EU: We will do our part

How about forcing dems to pay for killing men women and children in wars of conquest? Not defending the nation but wars of choice against a nation that has absolutely no ability to wage war directly against this nation. So the few dollars I exact from you to treat the needy is overwhelmed by the thousands you exact from me to pay for bloodshed in foreign lands.

 

Take your smug attitude elsewhere, I'm not buying it.

Thanks, now I won't be awake at night wondering.  Doesn't bother me much, unless it keeps the Mrs awake.

I take it was one of those 'conversations' that was in the mind only.

Problem with that is you should not credit 'god' with the statement but the person who heard it in their mind.

Re: Obama to EU: We will do our part

Just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
 
For example, if you went to a remote African village that never saw a cell phone before, and showed them one, telling them it allows you to talk to someone across the ocean, they wouldn't believe you, either.
 
Doesn't mean it can't be true, just means it is something so beyond what they believe, that they can't comprehend it.

Ah, but there is a difference.

I could let them talk to the person on the other side of the world with my cell phone to prove it worked that way.

 

Talking to a god is 'so beyond what' I understand that I await proof of it happening.
