Thank you Unprofitable Servant, for 2 reasons. First, a well reasoned statement to make me think further into the subject.
and No. 2 for not calling me a name for making the statement in the first place.
Some people on here can be kind of rough on you if they perceive you are leaning towards liberalism.
From what I have read, they make the comparison to that of AT&t for the 1920's and 30's that pretty much owned the phone companies. Until they regulated that(another nasty word here on SA) then there were more investments and greater advancements once that monopoly was broken up.
Thanks again for the links I will definitely check them out!!!
Mike from NY, your still awesome in my book and I appreciate your posts. Not dressing anyone down, just my opinion brother.
Mike wrote: Have you convinced anyone yet? I keep forgetting you like to have government fix problems that don't exist. Keep talking, though. It becomes more revealing with each post. Governments protect liberties? Good one!
Actually Mike, it is the government that protects liberties, if not for our government, you or I would have no liberties. They have accomplished this by wielding the army, navy, air force and marines. It's not the NRA that gave you liberties!
From what I've seen of the net neutrality thing, isn't it dealing with band width and has nothing to do with content, or am I reading it wrong???
Jim, facts are we pretty much eradicated this disease before the vaccine was introduced, and we significantly drove down the number of deaths due to getting measles. And, the sheer fact that everyone is freaking out shows little to no trust in the vaccine. It should be removed from vaccine schedule. And, the vaccine schedule pediatricians use needs to be retooled in such a way as to minimize the number of injections kids get at a given time. They should be spread out over a longer period. Plus, the parents should have the right not to vaccinate their children!
Wow, been busy and just checking in, I really wasn't attacking anyone. I merely said it's not really edifying and I wouldn't have posted it. I'm not the CEO so no one notified me before hand. JK. I do respect the ministry, I just know when you go negative you rarely have a positive effect on people. I actually own some of their books and my church taught their material for VBS.
Delivered, I see your going from thread to thread with this message. This is the News page of SermonAudio. News articles are posted here for Christian brothers and sisters to comment upon. If you don't wish to respond to a particular news item then perhaps there are other message sites you can happen upon.

Yes David, not exactly edifying. Kind of in your face. Sounds petty and mad. We are the ones, supposedly, with the peace of Jesus and the hope of Salvation thru His wonderful Grace! Not sure what Mr. Ham is going for, I wouldn't have wasted money on it.

Amen Pennned, as usual you are right on all accounts.

If you really love history, you could read the Word of God! What's more beautiful than a candlelit service is the name of Christ. Please try to avoid dragging it through the mass. Hairy, mass mess!
I do, in fact, read my bible daily and study the Word of God often. I do find time to read other things as well. I feel I'm very well read actually, including my bible.
Mike wrote: I agree. Democrats or Republicans who act like this should be called what they are, which is not proper in polite company. But today it is a Democrat administration continuing wars. A big difference as I see it is, the war dead are counted daily by the media when a repub is sitting in the White House, and they are ignored while Obama sits there. Without personal research, who would ever know that during O's tenure, triple the number of dead has occurred in Afghanistan as compared to the Bush era? And it is O's admin that bailed out Wall St and GM, GE, etc. while letting sm business go under. Welfare to the rich now belongs to the Democrats. They figured out that the poor can't fund them.
I disagree a little here Mike, the TARP start in october 2008 when bush saw the fruits of all those years of trickle down and no regulations on banks and too big to fail lending institutions. Nothing really has changed so it's on obama too. that is just the thing. Everyone that goes to washington is at fault. One party or the other, it's the same thing. the democrats did bail out the car companies in america, and the loans have been repaid. The money sent to the banks were a thank you for their votes i guess.
I think it's frightening to think of that Hugh of a number being a stop gap. But if anyone on here thinks it was just the democrats they are deluding themselves. The democrats do need to control their spending on social programs, however, the republicans incessant need to build war machines and attack other people and their continued insistence on giving welfare to the rich needs control as well!!!
Kentucky was all in for this expansion project. It's bringing millions to the local economies and around 900 jobs to a somewhat depressed area. They started getting more and more grief from atheist groups and finally when they found that the project would discriminate in it's hiring the state pulled the plug. I just hope the Ark can continue with out this incentive.
When I first started out, I had a low wage job. I was a police officer for a small town. I also had 2 children at that time. It was tough. I barley made enough to get by and pay rent. I got a job driving a school bus and sometimes unloaded trucks for a business in town. You can't start out as CEO of a major company. You have to start at the bottom and you may have to get a part-time job to make ends meet.
John for JESUS wrote: I only wish police procedure was different. Maybe don't roll up on a suspect to closely and don't shoot to kill someone not wanted for murder, etc.
Yes, you are right John for Jesus. I've noticed an itchy trigger finger on police more in the last few years. Not condemning the officer in Ferguson, they recently shot and killed a 12 year old in Cleveland for having a BB gun at a park. So many things could have been done by the parents to protect this child but the police drawing down on a 12 year old is beyond me. I think they need a little more training in a different area.
I totally agree Mike, it seems that christians in america give a buy to anyone conservative. However my point was the supreme courts only job is to say if something is constitutional. They are not allowed to make judgements based on any other code or creed. Do you know of anything in the constitution that says gays cannot marry? I can't really find any.
