Yes it should... For the most part, Welfare should be ended. It takes tax dollars from the those productive citizens and gives it to those who have failed at life. I still have not met a single person that can give me an answer to this very important question. Why should my taxpayer dollars go to pay for someone elses living expenses? I do not expect them to pay for me, so they should not expect me to pay for them. Let's sit down after I get my paycheck and line all the people on welfare up. I will then allow each of them to tell me how much of my check belongs to them and why. If I hear a good response, I might give them something, but until then, welfare is failing and it is truly immoral. And before you start thinking, "Oh my, this guy is so greedy" I will remind you that my paycheck is all MY money that I have EARNED through hard work. Me wanting to keep the majority of my paycheck doesn't seem to greedy to me.
No, never have and never will! Welfare is associated with a big and intrusive government that takes hard earned capital from one person and gives it to someone who did NOT work for it. It is not the government's job to redistribute wealth and the best welfare program has been proven time and time again to be successful...It's called a JOB. When someone gets something they didn't work for, someone worked for something that they didn't get.
No...MSNBC throws around so much more BS Of course not. They are protected under the Constitution of Freedom of the Press. Maybe this is scary to you, but 50% of people who watch Fox find it believable and credible, while only 35% can say the same for MSNBC who plays the race card 24/7. No news media should be censored. If you don't like it, don't watch it.
I am pretty sure Obama asked for Sequestration... If I am not mistaken, it was Barack Obama who asked for Sequestration. Obama's own economic adviser even admitted this. Jack Lew, in his confirmation hearings, conceded on February 13 that the sequester originated in the White House. On Tuesday February 19, press spokesman Jay Carney admitted “The sequester was something that was discussed… and as has been reported, it was an idea that the White House put forward.”
Of course, these clear admissions that Obama parented the sequester are being furiously spun (The Republicans made him do it), but the words are not subject to misinterpretation. So it is true. Obama is fighting against his own program, while blaming his opponents! It can’t be clearer than that.
Despite this conclusive evidence that Obama himself proposed the sequester, the media sat on its hands as the President falsely excoriated the Republicans for originating and insisting on the sequester. They stood by as the President ludicrously accused the Republicans of deliberately inflicting harm on sick children so that their filthy rich supporters could have their corporate jets. The press spread the myth that the President was above the fray and was working hard to save ordinary Americans from his vicious foes.
Yes it is!! The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.
Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad's own martial legacy - and that of his companions - along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.
Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing...
But if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)" The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). The use of the word "persecution" by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution - "idtihad" - and oppression - a variation of "z-l-m" - do not appear in the verse). The actual Arabic comes from "fitna" which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until "religion is for Allah" - ie. Unbelievers desist in their unbelief.
Quran (2:244) - "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."

Republicans need to start treating Women with more respect!! I believe it's about time that Republicans come around and treat women with more respect. Republicans seem to be so Anti-Women and oppress them into their classic gender roles. They need to adopt a more respectful approach to women like Clinton, Weiner, and Kennedy. All of those men were Democrats who are role models when it comes to how they treat women.
I am a Republican and I am not a Fascist I believe in a Free-Market Economy and I am Socially Conservative. FASCISTS DID NOT BELIEVE IN A FREE-MARKET ECONOMY!! Claiming that a whole party is Far Right is totally outrageous. It's like if I called the Democratic Party Socialists or Communists. They are all for Welfare, Food Stamps, and a country dependent on their government. I will say that if Democrats keep going to the left, they will very soon become Socialists and Communists, but if anything, the Republican Party is becoming too Moderate. They are willing to grant amnesty before securing the border and even though they are Constitutionally obligated, they don't seem too concerned with defeunding Obamacare.
I am gay and I do not believe you are born with any sexual orientation I believe sexual orientation evolves over time. People say there is proof that you are born gay, but there is no proof. Scientists have tried time and time again to prove that you are born gay or born straight, but they just cannot come up with enough conclusive evidence. Personally, I believe that I made choices that led me into the gay lifestyle. Of course I didn't sit here and say, "Yes, I want to be gay!!". That is NOT what I am saying. All I am saying is that I made choices (that could have very easily been made the other way) that affected my sexual orientation. I believe I have developed this over time and I definitely do not believe I was born this way. I honestly just find the way men act is more attractive than women. I do not find hardly any women physically attractive and I believe that the Female Reproductive organs are quite repulsive. I am in no way trying to be rude to women or be degrading to them. I just believe that the whole assumption that we are born gay or straight is totally outrageous. It is something that develops over time like EVERY OTHER like and dislike. I always compare sexual orientation to taste buds. At one point, you may like a certain food or gender. Certain experiences and relationships can change this just like different foods and combinations can allow a person to like something they hated prior. We like certain colors, movies, hobbies, sports, and books. We are not born to like these, they just adapt over time and we may like something else more when we are exposed to it.
I am gay and you have a very good point... I am wondering the same darn thing brother . It makes no sense to me either. Homosexuality isn't as natural as heterosexuality, but natural or not, people are going to have different likes and dislikes. Liking the color blue is as natural as liking the color red, but there are still people that like blue lol...
Research shows more guns equals less crime Some folks still seem to think that limiting guns will limit guns in the hands of criminals. Gun control mostly limits the law-abiding citizen. If you do some research, you will find out that more guns equals less crime.
Just look at Chicago as a perfect example. The most restrictive gun laws in the nation with the highest crime rate. Just look up John Lott, the leading expert on gun control.
Also, for the millionth time, the Second Amendment is about protecting the people from a tyrannical government, and not about hunting and target shooting.
Finally, to clear things up, there is no civilian rifle capable of firing hundreds of rounds in a couple seconds. They are all semi-automatic. Get your facts straight, folks.
