Non-violence cannot tackle terrorism: Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama, a lifelong champion of non-violence candidly stated that terrorism cannot be tackled by applying the principle of ahimsa because the minds of terrorists are closed.
In a nut shell:
Nancy Pelosi agreed to add a provision (in the public option health care bill) that would prohibit federal funds from being used for the purchase of plans that cover abortion in a new health care exchange. Leaving out the amendment would force taxpayers (who are morally against abortions) to subsidize abortion.
Pelosi’s decision to give the anti-abortion lawmakers what they wanted in exchange for their accession to passing the bill.
So..., the question is, should people who are morally against abortions be forced to pay for them?
Liberals want everyone to have a great life. For example, if you get sick, someone should pay for your health care. If you are unemployed, someone should pay you welfare. The list goes on and on but you get the idea.
So, for this scheme to work, someone has to pay for these benefits and the only way you can get people to pay for these benefits is if there are a hell of a lot more people with money than people without money or if one person has ALL the money. But even if you took ALL the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, eventually you would still end up with a group of poor people and a group of rich people. So why bother?
Now, as liberals have been telling us for quite some time now, there are a hell of a lot more poor people than rich people. So, eventually you would be forced to take at least some of the money from the poor people in order to give it to people wo are even poorer. Unless, of course, you increase the population in order to have more people that you can tax. But liberals are for abortion!!! But even if they were against abortion, the more people there are, the less jobs there are and the lower the wages (supply and demand) and the higher the number of people looking for a handout.
Another way to make it work is to get more people to go to work so that they can get taxed. But who the hell wants to work when they can just get a handout?
It just doesn't make any sense. But liberals act like they are the intellectuals and everyone else is a red neck even though it is clear to see that liberals lack common sense.
More and more products are now coming with license agreements.If these license agreements are so great,why not replace warning labels with license agreements?- Instead of this -Warning: Do not use this electric hair dryer in the shower.Warning: Do no stick Q-tip into ear.- have this -By purchasing this product you agree to not use it in the shower.By purchasing this product you agree to not stick it into ear.Once this is accomplished, the next step is to apply it to guns.By purchasing this product you agree to not be an ass-hole and murder people with it.Then, if they try to sue the gun company, the gun company could say,"Your honor, that gun was not manufactured for the purpose of murdering people.In fact, our license agreement specifically states that it will not be used for the purpose.We would like to sue the defendant for violating the license agreement."Murderers would not only face murder charges,they will also face license agreement violation charges.Faced with all this litigation, the number of murders committed in the U.S. will drop.

A little girl asked her mother, 'How did the human race appear?'
The mother answered, 'God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so all mankind was made.' Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.
The father answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.'
The confused girl returned to her mother and said, 'Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said it developed from monkeys?'
The mother answered, 'Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.'
One day last year a Texas Political Science Professor was teaching his class about the failures of Socialism in world governments. A bright young student arose to challenge the Professor and insisted that Socialism does work in certain areas of the world and indeed is working now in the good ole US of A as well!The Professor said "Ok class if you all agree we will conducted a live experiment in the merits of Socialism, but you must all agree to accept the results of this experiment". The class all agreed, they were very eager to precipitate in the Professor's experiment; which was:1. Quiz on Wednesday, Test on Friday, the grade will be on an average. If the average score in the class was an A then everyone gets an A. If the average score in the class was a B then everyone gets a B. If the average score in the class was a C then everyone gets a C. If the average score in the class was a D then everyone gets a D. If the average score in the class was an F then everyone gets a F2. This experiment in Socialism would last for one month.
The first grade on the Quiz was a B, so everyone in the class got a B. Some of the A students were complaining, but the C students were happy to get a B. The A students started to study less and complain more.The results of the Test on Friday was a C, now the A students were really complaining to the other students about studying and they were trying to encourage the C students to bring up their grades, but the C students did not respond.The next week the grades were a C and D, the former A students lost interest and did not bother to study because now there was no incentive for them to excel and the former C students were mad at the A students for not helping the C students with their studies, so the C students just quit studying.The result was that at the end of the month the whole class got a F. The Texas Professor said, "This is perfect example of how Socialism does not work and why Socialism fails people as a whole!"
The followers of atheism have historically made war. They swallow up the worlds resources making war weaponry. This lack of religion has a pattern of bringing the whole planet to the brink of a nuclear disaster which could wipe out most of the human race. This lack of religion seeks the approval of science. This lack of religion uses race baiting and scientific hypocracy to fuel hatred throughout the earth.... So I ask the question...for the good of all peaceful people on planet and the survival of the human race: should they be a continent and be forced to live there and thus be separated from the rest of the human race?
What do I mean, "biblical"?I mean Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff.Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...The dead rising from the grave!The end of gay marriage, abortions, Obama Care and of the world itself!Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

What is wrong with God being responsible for Evolution?
At first I thought this would be a debate for only Theists, but I realize that it can also pertain to Atheists. We keep having debates about whether Evolution is correct, but why is there so much opposition? What is so weird about God using Evolution to create all life? For Atheists, is there something about Evolution that would not allow God to be responsible for it? I just don't know why it has become God vs. Evolution when everything else we have discovered is the way God does it.

If there's one thing politicians rely on, is you forgetting the last scam they tried to put on the American people. I remember clearly the 'Next Ice Age' is coming scare in the '70's. Now, I can see it for what it was then and what the whole global warming issue is now.
Here is a couple of articles from the '70's of the coming 'Ice Age' and how man is the evil behind it.
Here is one from....should I say?....ok..I will....Time Magazine in 1974
Not to be outdone by Time magazine, here is an article from 'Newsweek' in 1975;
