Nobody makes jokes about alcoholic intoxication anymore. I guess people would think you're talking about Republicans, and-- you can tax liquor. Hmm, I knew there was some reason why the Greedy Old Party didn't want to raise taxes.
Ah, John Y., much as I hate to agree with you, (everyone remember my comment about to Come Out Of The Catholic Church! to him?) Yes, they aren't supposed to be paid. If they are they might become truly voluntary, now!
This appears to be just another attack on the ACA by the John Birch Society AKA Greedy Old Party, and shouting, "The sky is Falling!"
Tony Cisneros is on more than one thread? which again means, I have to point out about something of what really is the Pentecostal church he goes to, Red Hot Preaching??? and people can go to an excellent Christian church (and no doubt there are more in the Chicago/Hammond area), but try out, Christian Fellowship Church
One other thing you can blame on the Apartheid government except perhaps Mandela, they just about killed off every smart black leader there was, Mandela recognized the AIDS problem, though perhaps a little late, but he did try to do something about it, q.v.,
Nelson Mandela wrote: Let us give publicity to HIV-AIDS and not hide it, because the only way to make it appear like a normal illness, like TB, like cancer, is always to come out and to say somebody has died because of HIV,‚ÄĚ Mr. Mandela said that morning. ‚ÄúAnd people will stop regarding it as something extraordinary.
Remember the ACA does give women a choice, and a choice to make a moral one, if they so chose,
BBC News wrote: Fact: Before ACA, pre-natal care wasn't normal women's care. Some 87% of insurance plans on the individual market did not offer maternity or labour and delivery as part of their coverage package.
Women have been going into debt, declaring bankruptcy, ruining their lives; all to give birth.
For some unknown reason, this has been brought to mind, Red Hot Preaching??? For you who live in the Chicago/Hammond area, you could be drawn into a "Baptist" church that practices the above. One church in that area that I can recommend with confidence is, Christian Fellowship Church
Ah, you mean "professor" Smithfield, and to address John "Professor" Yurick,
Mike Gendron wrote: All Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches together make up the ‚Äúprofessing‚ÄĚ Church. The ‚Äútrue‚ÄĚ church is only a small part of the ‚Äúprofessing‚ÄĚ church, which includes both born again believers and mere professors of Christ (James 1:14). Jesus called believers ‚Äúthe wheat‚ÄĚ and mere professors, who are sons of the evil one, ‚Äúthe tares‚ÄĚ (Mt. 13:24-30, 36-43). Unless the tares experience the second birth, they will one day be deathly horrified when they hear Jesus declare from His Great White Throne: ‚ÄúI never knew you, depart from Me‚ÄĚ (Mat. 7:23).
Ah, SteveR, you should realize then we don't elevate creeds or confessions to the level of Scripture, A Short History Of Dispensationalism. Spurgeon, was not only wrong about overeating and smoking cigars, but dispensationalism as well, in spite of an overall excellent record in his preaching.
Spurgeon did believe in a premillennial physical return of Christ, and he believed in the millennial reign of Christ as well, q.v. The Millennial Position of Spurgeon (PDF), from this same source you will find out that Spurgeon didn't think that Eschatology was a part of "Practical Christianity" as I said, he wasn't right in everything
Ah, Cliff, no matter what the truth may be about Mandela, you can be certain of one thing, politicians will do what is politically correct. I wonder if Clinton's handshake was during his second administration also, where the voters of Florida weren't very important anymore.
Apparently Nelson Mandela, recognized there was a problem with AIDS in South Africa, while the following presidents of that country help to turn it into an epidemic, HIV AIDs in South Africa. It certainly appears that many of the people of SA, have to know How to Have Victory Over Sin

Webster's 1913 Dictionary wrote: The act or practice of a hypocrite; a feigning to be what one is not, or to feel what one does not feel; a dissimulation, or a concealment of one's real character, disposition, or motives; especially, the assuming of false appearance of virtue or religion; a simulation of goodness. Hypocrisy is the necessary burden of villainy. Rambler. Hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue. La Rochefoucauld (Trans. ).
Luke 12:1 Under these circumstances, after so many thousands of the multitude had gathered together that they were stepping on one another, He began saying to His disciples first of all, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 "But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.---NASB
John Y., you are no more a Christian than a Pharisee. Join with a group of Christians, if you
No, SteveR, Dispensationalists recognize the whole Bible, Dispensations, but of course God doesn't lose anything or any tribe, and secondly no doubt all the tribes had people who had moved from the other 10 tribes to Judah, when they got tired of the false worship in "Israel".
John Yurich USA wrote: Well then why is Jim against the Anglican Church?
Because it isn't Christian, John Y., "The faith of Anglicans is founded in the scriptures, the traditions of the apostolic church, the apostolic succession ‚Äď "historic episcopate" and the early Church Fathers...." Anglicanism, because this church is closely modeled on the Romish Church, which is why high church Anglicans have no problem becoming Catholics, this church never understood, What are the ‚Äúfive solas,‚ÄĚ and what do they mean?.
Hmm, perhaps people should have signed up with an Android tablet, at least my name is on the list and I didn't have any trouble with the first time I got on. But, do I think a new nirvana has come to the American healthcare scene. But wait for it, hold your breath, for a little bit, no I don't. I follow the news in England, Australia, and Israel. All with more socialized healthcare programs, and they all have had problems. But some healthcare, even if its sometime flaky is sure better than no healthcare.
Penny, you can teach children good grammar, from the Bible, if you use a version like New King James Version and probably the ESV. No, too much has changed to go back to the 19th century and especially anything earlier than that.
UPS, did you read the pros- and cons- URL that I put up. It wasn't not all pros even if I did take a quotation from that section of the article.
Yes, if you have a child who is a genius, you do send him to a private school or home school him. I gave you an example of a well-schooled man, though not in wisdom, The education of John Stuart Mill Many states, especially the Red ones, will have their standards raised by Common Core.
I will say once again, no matter Common Core or just a regular public school, you keep an eye on what is being taught your children!
