    We are all God’s children and you dishonor your beliefs and God with statements like this.

    @Darsan54

    Darsan….you touched on a good point. It’s all about beliefs..remember that word, BELIEFS……it has nothing to do with reality. By the way, have you noticed that miracles such as this no longer happen in educated countries…only in third world countries where ignorance is prevalent?

    There’s no such thing as global warming…it’s just a liberal myth designed to hurt our beloved corporations. And if it is occurring, it certainly isn’t caused by humans.

    Jesus could perform the miracle again now through our actions. Ooops, sorry, guess you did not want to hear that. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle….hmmmm.

    You’re not talking about Red States, are you?

    In other words, it’s your own fault if you’re laid off, too old, too sick, happen to be born in a Third World country, or if your parents couldn’t afford to pay for your college education. Jesus would agree, no doubt.

    I’m childfree and below the poverty line. Kiss off.

    Tower, as usual all you do is mindlessly post the opposite of what others say. Go on…prove your claim that it’s the conservatives warning us about overpopulation. You’re either woefully ignorant, or a liar.

    And what makes you think I’m “in poverty”??? More ignorance on your part.

    For anyone wishing to see Tower’s lie about conservatives and overpopulation, simply Google “does overpopulation exist” and see who says “no”. Here’s the first hit, and gee…it’s by a conservative!

    It’s also both sad and hilarious that Tower claims people should “stop having children you cannot afford”, yet it’s always the conservatives who want to stamp out sex education, birth control, and defund Planned Parenthood.

    Is it possible to be a conservative without being a blatant hypocrite?

    If you have concerns about overpopulation and birth control, you can rest easy as far as western countries go. US and Europe populations have been declining. Demographically caucasians are getting bred out. Immigrants are slowly but rapidly becoming majorities in western nations.
    Now the trick is how anyone pushing birth control expects to impose it on other cultures short of employing Draconian laws and enforcement like China does. You think 1 billion Muslims are going to get on-board ? I don’t think so. Try it and see what happens.
    As far as food goes, we have more than enough to feed the world. The problem is transportation, distribution, and national stability. If Africa could cease from its endless civil wars and tyrants, it could feed itself and the world. The price of oil affects the cost of food with fertilizer and transportation. The former we can do something about if we get away from the mega corporation farms with sterile genetic seeds.
    If you want to go further, look how much good farmland is wasted on raising tobacco, illegal drugs, and worthless corn. The latter has been raised in abundance in the foolish hope of creating alternative energy source—which cost more than gasoline to produce! Corn syrup is way worse than sugar and in everything we eat.

    I’ve seen this before in the Golden Book edition of the Gospel According to St. Hedge Fund in the holy book of Jesus of Wall Street. It’s the part where he goes on to promise them all one free lunch if they sign a two year contract to accept weekly delivery of one fish and one loaf of bread at a special limited time price. It’s the scriptural basis of the sacrament of capitalization.

    @Anthony: Hey! good to hear from you…..LOL. I think that everyone here should remember that each of us is an individual and the majority do not espouse the ideas portrayed by a cartoonists opinion. If you listen (not talk) to what your neighbor really says….well…. it’s likely not the party line. Conservatives – as a rule – are against abortion. However, conservatives all practice some form of birth control for the most part. I – for one – support sex education and I really think parenthood should be planned. Funding for that project should continue. But why do we have to use abortion as birth control? If you educate, plan and utilize birth control then why are there unwanted pregnancies? Yes, I know that due to rape – something that once the perpetrator is caught should never happen again – a child may be conceived. A morning after pill should be part of ever rape kit. But to be foolish or distracted by the moment or just plain not responsible and then kill a new life as a routine should not be an option. But that is just my opinion and each person has to make those kind of decisions for themselves. AND, if a person were to make that decision then the cost should also be theirs as well. That is were we have a difference of opinion.

    We can work it out. IF you will stop painting us all with the same brush (I will do the same). Will we ever stop fighting and get together?
