    I don't know anyone that is in a frenzy because of how much pigment is in his skin. I'm curious as to why people on both sides seem to find it relevant to mention the President's skin color. I thought we'd be beyond that in 2010. Move on to more substantive things, I say.

    Yes, I do.

    And....when is there only one option? Like....poor parents who can't afford to send their kids to a private school so they have to send them to the crappy public school in town that has burnt-out teachers and corrupt administrators? That's the first thought that came to mind when you said "only one option".

    Re: We are a Christian Nation....

    Bottom Line...

    Because like 90 some odd percent of our 'founding fathers' were Christians does not make this a country "founded on christian principles"... it makes this a country "founded by people... who happened to be christian."

    Because 70 some odd percent of Americans 'claim' to be christian does not make this a "Christian Nation" it makes this a country that ... happens to have a lot of Christians living in it.

    One question though,

    W T F is the significance of this, honestly?

    Is it one of those touchy feely things for you people or what?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    If the govt. had total control we wouldn't have a capitalist economy. We wouldn't have choice.

    If there wasn't anti-trust regulations there would only be one option in lots of sectors. Standard Oil comes to mind. In many places people don't have a choice in who they get their electricity and natural gas from.

    We are a nation built on Christianity. Truth hurts, but you're gonna have to get over it.

    Why are you calling me out? "I" am not the one that brought it up and sugggest you ask the person that did suggest that he does not even know what skin color he is.

    And if you think nobody is in a "frenzy" over his skincolor? I suggest you take a look at the TeaParty, FreeRepub, FoxNews weboards and then maybe you will understand what I am talking about.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
