Oh Jesus, get over it. You are mandated to pay taxes. We all are. At least some of that tax money goes to fund something that is in direct conflict with your moral or religious beliefs. It is that way for all of us. You are still free to practice your religion the way you want, but don't expect...

When I watched that movie, I thought, how does a slave remain clean shaven for 12 years? Minor technical critique of mine. Good movie.
Another thing that movies like this always remind me of, is the firing of Jimmy the Greek by CBS for telling the truth about breeding blacks during the slave ...

Why in the world would anyone with an ounce of sense think that Perry would be favored over Paul by Tea Party types? Perry's method of governing is steeped in cronyism.

I look at offshoring jobs as privatized foreign aid. I'd rather that they employ folks in their home country instead of the folks coming here to work. But it comes at a risk to the company because many countries don't have the standards that are mandatory - example; my company outsourced over 1500...

It is known and ethnic cleansing and it is nothing new. Hamas (who's creation was assisted by Israel) is conveniently hostile enough for more collective punishment. But the hatred by the Arabs only builds more and more.
There is nothing logical about what Hamas is doing, but they are militant...
