    RNC Committee Convention Schedule (humor)

    IT'S HARD TO BE A REPUBLICAN IN 2004 Somehow, you have to believe that: 1. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton. 2. The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U. N. resolutions against...

    What Made You a Republican or Democrat?

    Uh, hate to break it to you but EVERYBODY pays taxes. Sales tax, social security tax, medicare tax. Nearly everybody pays state and federal tax. Sure, the absolute most destitute subsisting on crumbs no indoor plumbing living in a trailer poor pay nothing, but poor is a spectrum. And there...

    What Made You a Republican or Democrat?

    Bruz, Clearly, our experiences are different. I grew up in a lower-middle-class household and I can tell you, that despite my parents' best financial managing, it's tough when tax day rolls around and you owe all your state tax at once. Some of my friends were definitely well within the...

    What Made You a Republican or Democrat?

    Would that it were so. Had you lived in California then, you would have recalled that Ronny avoided paying ANY state taxes for five years. This came out after one of his vetoes. A reporter writing a story about him came upon the information quite by accident, and it was trumpeted in the LA...

    What Made You a Republican or Democrat?

    Yeah, but Ronny WASN'T being hurt by them. He just weaseled out of paying while the rest of us--whose only sin was not raking in oodles of bucks like Ron--had to get hurt.

    What Made You a Republican or Democrat?

    Ugh! I grew up under under his "leadership" as governor of California. Those of us who did all remember how at the time California had one of the highest tax rates in the nation, and no withholding. So every year you got socked with a giant bill all at once. Several times the legislature tried...

    Another question

    Yes. And I always feel it is my duty to lie, or at best to give completely random answers. It's my goal to be part of that ±4% error.

    Traffic Chaos as Hearse Ejects Corpse

    Re: And another one... But you forgot the best part of the story! It fell out just as the driver crested a long hill. The coffin slid down the hill, running four stoplights, then shot through a city park, upended a mailbox, smashed through the front of a barber shop, then out the back...

    We're a messed up country Pt II

    But what about the figs, man? What about the figs? I think it's OK to hate figs. On this god and I agree. I think god would want us to demonize and ridicule figs. Oh wait, are there figs in Fig Newtons? 'Cause I do like Fig Newtons.

    We're a messed up country Pt II

    And dammit Hessian, it's bad enough you're using Mr. Spock (a character who values logic above faith and who celebrates the principle of IDIC--"infinite diversity in infinite combinations") as your avatar and spouting your vapid twaddle about evolution, but could you please at least get your sig...

    We're a messed up country Pt II

    No, no, you're mistaken. It's figs that god hates; not fags. See this link for more info. Recall how Jesus rebuked the fig tree: "Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he was hungry. And when he saw a fig tree by the road, he came to it, and found nothing on it, but leaves...

    Are religious objections to equality for gay Americans valid?

    Could be because the religion forum is devoted to discussions of different ideas regarding religion. The idea that organized religion basically represents an adult version of playing make-believe is just as valid as any other. Cue Rush: <i>You can choose a ready guide In some celestial...

    Are religious objections to equality for gay Americans valid?

    It's all Greek to me "arsenokoite" (ar-SEN-oh-KOY-teh) is a Greek word unknown before its use by Paul. However, it appears to be composed of the words "arsane" which means "manly" and "koite" which means "couch" or "bed." So, clearly, manly couches will NOT be allowed into heaven. Left open...

    Alabama Court House...

    Certainly not. That's because in their proper place--a museum--they are placed in context. They tell me about people's beliefs. They are artwork that can be judged on aesthetic merits. The monument in question is not historical (it's just something Crazy Roy had made up), it doesn't fit in with...

    Alabama Court House...

    Sure, but what about Satanism? Or Buddhism? Or Hinduism? Or Animism? They all have different commandments. Oh, and what about atheists? We're smart enough to know that killing, lying, stealing, cheating are bad without needing to be told so by a mythical sky god. Also, if I'm not mistaken, there...

    Alabama Court House...

    Perhaps if you'd care to read past the 2ndAmendment, you'd notice, a bit further down, sandwiched between the one abolishing slavery and the one allowing all races to vote, the somewhat obscure 14th Amendment which makes the Bill of Rights applicable to the states. This would be the amendment...

    Alabama Court House...

    No, not as such. Yes it does. It gives preference to the Christian mythos. There is no historical significance to the monument itself (Crazy Roy Moore snuck it in one night.), so it exists merely to advocate a specific religion. Crazy Roy Moore has suggested as such. Note that the claim that...

    Alabama Court House...

    Incorrect. I dealt with this in a previous thread. To summarize, the Ten Commandments and Christianity in general have nothing to do with the laws of our country. In the case of four of the commandments, our laws say the opposite: "Worship no other gods" Our laws allow you to worship...
