The Germans benefited from the deal in 1953, which underpinned Germany’s postwar economic miracle. Twenty years earlier, Germany defaulted on its debts from World War I, after undergoing a bout of hyperinflation and economic depression that helped usher Hitler to power.
It seems like whatever Obama touches turns to crap. He campaigns for fellow Democrats and they lose. He tries to help people with their mortgage and they lose their home.

For example, God places all the liberals in one place and all the conservatives in another place and the liberals think they are in heaven and that the conservatives are in hell but the conservatives know better ;)
“Sec. 224 (p. 118) provides that 18 months after the bill becomes law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services will decide what a "qualified plan" covers and how much you'll be legally required to pay for it. That's like a banker telling you to sign the loan agreement now, then filling in the interest rate and repayment terms 18 months later.”
“Sec. 59b (pp. 297-299) says that when you file your taxes, you must include proof that you are in a qualified plan. If not, you will be fined thousands of dollars. Illegal immigrants are exempt from this requirement.”
“On Nov. 2, the Congressional Budget Office estimated what the plans will likely cost. An individual earning $44,000 before taxes who purchases his own insurance will have to pay a $5,300 premium and an estimated $2,000 in out-of-pocket expenses, for a total of $7,300 a year, which is 17 percent of his pre-tax income. A family earning $102,100 a year before taxes will have to pay a $15,000 premium plus an estimated $5,300 out-of-pocket, for a $20,300 total, or 20 percent of its pre-tax income. Individuals and families earning less than these amounts will be eligible for subsidies paid directly to their insurer.”
‘It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilisations.’
Can blacks be racist? The answer, of course, will depend on how you define racism. If you define it as “prejudice against or hatred toward another race,” then the answer is yes. If you define racism as “the belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race,” the answer is yes. And if you define racism as “prejudice and discrimination rooted in race-based loathing,” then the answer is, again, yes. However, if you define racism as “a system of group privilege by those who have a disproportionate share of society’s power, prestige, property, and privilege,” then the answer is no. In the end, it is my opinion that individual blacks can be and sometimes are racists. However, collectively, blacks are neither the primary creators nor beneficiaries of the racism that permeates society today.
No self immolation.
You don't have to pay a tithe.
You can get laid before marriage.
You can use God's name in vain all you want.
You don't have to get up early in the morning on Sunday, get dressed up and go to church.
When you come home drunk at night, you can go straight to bed without having said your prayers.
You don't have to fast or give anything up during a specific time of year or celebrate weird religious holidays.
If it feels good, do it. You don't have to worry that you will burn in Hell for you moral indiscretions..., at least not until after it's too late.
You don't have to dress a certain way, wear your hair a certain way, cover your face, have a beard, wear a hat, wear a necklace, put a red dot on your forehead, or anything.
There are some draw backs, like Christmas. Unless you don't mind being called a hypocrite and can rationalize it away.
In conclusion, atheism is a good deal with many benefits and few drawbacks.
political conformity = you're doing what others are doing, you have no personality or ideas of your own you're not a leader, you're a follower, you're a conformist, you conform.Think about political correctness.
