    Becca they say ignorance IS bliss………..

    Take second and get over yourself. Now think on a world scale instead of restricting your observations to the immediate 4 feet in front of your nose.

    Here in the homeland of America several hundred years ago those that founded our government wrote a basis for law that included the RIGHT to hold and practice one’s religion and the RIGHT to express their faith in the public square. We enjoy that for the most part though latley that raight has been coming under fire by those not able to comprehend that sex and populatity are not the only things worth pursuing

    HOWEVER, around the globe and particularly in the middle east Christians are being persecuted. Many being put to death simply because they are christian. This is the thrust of the cartoon.

    We are all worked up over climate change, a fact of life since the beginning of time but are silent on the plight of HUMANS ……

    That being said, know that IMO religion is a hindrance to free societies everywhere and should be a private matter.

    “I cannot conceive otherwise than that He, the Infinite Father, expects or requires no worship or praise from us, but that He is even infinitely above it.” - Benjamin Franklin, from “Articles of Belief and Acts of Religion”, Nov. 20, 1728

    Love is all you need :)

    LOL, really? " Nor are the extremists among the Muslim communities an existential danger to us."

    So a nation (Iran) that is governed by a “theocracy” based on Islam, has promised to rid the earth of two things by any means necessary and YOU happen to be in one of the two targets and you say that there is no threat made to your existence?

    OK, I can see that you are secure where you are today. I also believe that you are of an age and recognize that your life expectancy may not be of great length. So you personal sense concerning a perceived threat to your personal existence may be dulled.

    However, there will be a future where you and I are not in attendance. I see a threat that may not become a reality until far past my life span (which is short as of today).

    Further, why would I differentiate between one unreasonable set of laws regardless of origin country?

    Further still, how will others know that they are acting against what the “educated 1st world countries” have learned unless you TELL THEM?

    Sorry.

    I agree, the people in those countries need to stand and be counted. Hard to do if there is no one to stand with them…….

    Come on dude! Sarcasm is painted all over vfwiffo’s comment. Along with some common sense. Everyone one else wants to paint bule bell with the big corp don’t care brush BUT after one cup of ice cream tested bad out of OK they shut recalled everything out of that plant. Ditto when more were found at another plant they recalled (at great expense ) EVERY single product from everywhere. Gee, such a bad neighbor blue bell is……

    So, I have two products in my freeser. NEVER had a problem before. BUT gonna get my 10 bucks back today since it’s grocery day….

    how will more regulations do anything other than increase the price of the product?

    So as much as I respect your opinion, I think you are overlooking the fact that the world is shrinking and that what the EU does affects us as does the actions in the middle east.

    As moral people that abhor the misogynist attitude displayed, the outright hated of Jews, the violent intolerance directed at anyone who does not conform to a strict religious lifestyle of the “one true religion” Islam, are we as a nation to sit on the sidelines and ignore the plight of those under that dark cloud?

    Yes, let the radicals reign in the middle east, push Israel into the sea and kill all the jews, exterminate all the Christians simply because they are christian, hang all the homosexuals because they are an affront to God and when they finally get their middle east caliphate they will turn their ire to the new world with aspirations of conquest to cleanse the world of infidels (that’s YOU and me). They will be stronger and filled with righteous anger such in their quest while we cower behind rock walls.

    (sigh)

    Exactly.

    Which is why, those of us in the middle need to talk to every last person we see, assit them in obtaining the will and the documentation to vote and get the people back on top.

    Hard to beat all that money though ……..

    So we need to start by electing those that are polar opposites to the man in the seat now.

    While there are democrats with good ideas, there is only one place to find people that want a balanced budget, adherence to the rule of law and the idea that America needs to LEAD in the world and not sit on the sidelines….

  7. Bruce4671 commented on Nick Anderson 4 days ago

    So I’m the idiot?

    In case you didn’t know, my comment was directed at misterdantes who said that both democrats and republicans were responsible for their own messes in the middle east. I agreed with that and suggested that perhaps we may do better by electing new people that have no affiliation to the two main parties.

    But then I expect your liberal education skips past “reading” and “comprehension” and goes straight to emoting …….

    Uhhhh tell me again who else is running as a democrat?

    rich deadbeats???

    Name one. And do NOT come back with the Koch brothers who employ over 100K people and are involved in a variety of industries such as refining and chemicals; pollution control equipment; minerals; fertilizers; fibers and polymers; commodity and financial trading; forest and consumer products; ranching; and business development.

    Or maybe you can look to hollywood for the rich deadbeats, or on wall street and the likes of Buffett. None of whom do a thing to employ others, right?

    Can they do better? sure.

    And you as well Bevis…

    Isn’t it strange that we all agree that the other guys politicians are corrupt, dishonest, unethical slime balls…..

    So why is it that the incumbent gets re-elected most of the time? Why do we look to certain “families” for the next kid to occupy the WH?

    Isn’t it time to try some different people? Some different world views?

    Certainly the Tea Party offers just such an option (though vetting the candidates is hard having to rely on the info gather for us by the media).

    But you call them insane simply BECAUSE they offer something different that the establishment…well golly gee isn’t that what we need?
