If one is not materially prospering, one must be out of sinc with God and, therefor, not worth the time, especially if they refuse a witness.

    Meanwhile, those of us who are not the "right kind" of Christians are taking food to the homeless on Lower Whacker Drive, supporting cold whether shelters, helping cook meals, passing out condoms and needles to prevent HIV... Huh, never see too many fundies down there doing this work. But they look good on the TeeVee machine.
    See, there you go again, pushing off personal responsibilities to the Federal Govt, because you cannot sell it in the states. Always giving us one side of the equation, the negative one. TX has the 11th largest economy in the world, is home for more Fortune 1000 Companies than any other state and all I get from you is whining and distortions. The actual results here make you look foolish.

People keep moving to TX so obviously they have a different opinion of TX than you and others here. What do they know that you don't?
    You people realize that liberals, as a group, are a hell of a lot more successful, wealthier and "self-made" than your average con, right? What? You think I made money sitting around waiting to rape the middle class so I can succeed? Uh uh. Started with 1 big truck. Then 2. Then 3...

    Liberal families' incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families. So, how ya gonna square that triangle? Why are conservatives taking my money? Know what the welfare rates are for cons? No different than libs. Abortion? Same. Divorce? Same. Food Stamps? Same. Head Start? Same. So here's a bit of truth for you: Liberals do just fine. Chances are good I make a lot more money than you. The difference? I don't exploit the needy and blame them for their condition. I don't blame the victim. When something is wrong, I look within. I don't blame Obama, or Bush, or Conservatards, or Muslims, or freaky Christians. I find my own faults and fix it - without you or anyone else.

    So - you are basically dead wrong and know nothing about liberals, or progressives, or Democrats. You know what a small mind and hatred teach you, nothing more.

    6% more money we make and you dare accuse us of sloth? Sorry, but as I always say, projection is a terrible thing. You'll never see your own shortcomings if you keep laying them on everyone else.

    Where did I mention the federal government in my Christianity post? Well? WHERE? I only addressed Prosperity Christianity and the work my church does. Now you have a problem with taking care of the less fortunate in a religious setting?

    Listen Baby Einstein: I can give my time, talents and money to whom I please. What I do in my church has nothing to do with government - another first amendment right you probably know nothing about. I have a few suggestions for you, but I don't need any more hit-points because you cons can't handle debate.

    As I've said, I can buy and sell you three times over. Seriously, leave me alone.

    OF course you can link us back to where I said any of that? If you weren't so busy with mental masturbation you would remember that I have said many times that we have a lot of slackers, some of them my siblings. But that in no way means that the disadvantaged are also slackers....
    As far as Texans knowing what I don't? I suppose they are better at skinning squirrels...

    Good. But I'm wealthy, and you're not. Average of 6%. Maybe you should stop with the kool-aide? Now, take your little self and leave the wealth to those that can handle it responsibly.

    I'm noticing focus is an issue here.

You seem to have a serious problem giving credit where it is due and stealing shamelessly. Seems to me that Utah is a Conservative state and the people there understand personal responsibility. It doesn't appear that you have grasped that concept.
    Do you have any idea why Texas petitioned the United States to become a state in the first place? You couldn't pay your war debt and were ascared of Mexico. So please...

    Mexico is invading the southwestern states everyday, not too many states are doing much about it.
    It is bad enough that we outsource/export jobs to Mexico, do we have to import Mexican labor for the jobs we can't export?

    We don't have to worry about it when they secede and become Texico.
