    Walk around for just a tiny bit and you will hear regular people say all sorts of shameful things because of political or economic views. It doesn't matter what their ideology is.

    The God of the old testament is illogical as a deity worthy of worship. His actions and the teachings that are attributed to him are often immoral. The New Testament tries to marry Judaism with Platonism (which is a big old bag of crazy on its own) and so we get this figure of God as divine.

    Very, sadly true. I've been dismayed at some of the rhetoric/comments coming from those sharing my beliefs. People are people and no ideology can immunize them from making reprehensible comments.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Accusations aren't supposed to be opinions.

    This thread is about judging 80 million people based on the actions of 2-3 people, but you already knew that.

    The services would be paid for under a public system too.

    Then why is it when a few union people do something dumb, it gets turned into "everybody who's not anti-union?"

    The money would be stolen out of American taxpayer pockets under a public system, **** that ****.
