Oh Chuckles, you're just going to have live with the fact that you live in a country where the vast majority of people don't know the captial of their own state. We're a country of stupid people who want their junk food and American Idol and for their minister to tell them what to do to get in to heaven on Sunday morning. This is good for guys like you though: It's what your party relies on: Mindless Sheep to be controlled by fear and anger.
Unless you're a Christian, Charles doesn't think the Constitution covers you. Athiests, Agnostics, Jews, Mormons, Muslims, et. al, go pound sand. Sorry Chuckles, the Constitution is the prevailing law of the land, not your precious Bible, and I don't give a tinker's DAMN what you THINK the intentions of Founding Fathers were, or about the tenor of the times in which it was written. The document as written is free of predjudice for or against any relgion, which is part of its brilliance.
I guess CHG has never heard of work smarter, not harder. Charles, you are the biggest buzzkill on the planet, and what's more, you ENJOY being the biggest buzzkill on the planet. You raised your hand in class to remind the teacher to assign homework. I know you got picked last for kickball and the popular girls ignored you in school, but it's time to LET IT GO. If you don't let go of your anger and bitterness, it will consume you. Let go of the dark side Darth.
Um CHG, I say SFW? These people are TEACHING OUR CHILDREN YOU MOPE! I am happy to spend my tax dollars to provide a decent living for teachers.
CHG, why do you care where a person's sense of morality and principles comes from, so long as they conform to that which is beneficial to an orderly society? I would argue that an Athiest who has a worldview and set of principles that includes a belief that what a woman does with her body is between her and her physician is of far more benefit to our world than some pyscho "Christian" who blows up an Abortion Clinic or murders an doctor because he provides abortions all in the name of Jesus. With you, it always has to be "my dogma is better than your dogma." You are obviously extraordinarily insecure because you can't simply say that Christianity works for you and good on you if something else works for you. Like so many other Christians, you are petrified that if another human being chooses another path, instead of it just being a different choice, it means you might be wrong, and then your whole life (and afterlife) crumbles and you fall apart. Is your faith really that weak that it cannot withstand the challenge of an opposing viewpoint?
CHG isn't an irrational, closed-minded, xenophobic provincial zealot. Everyone who disagrees with him is...
Bruce, some of your best and most sobering work yet. And to all Right Wingers: Once and for all, now and forever: you can't have MLK Jr. Stop it. MLK was a LIBERAL. He was an agitator against THE MAN. You Right Wingers are THE MAN, and I mean that in the most negative sense of the term. THE MAN is all about oppression of persons who don't look, think, talk, pray, and fuck EXACTLY like he does. Move on to another champion of the downtrodden to try to co-opt to give yourselves some credibility like Ghandi or Jesus. At least they weren't killed by white, racist Conservatives.
