"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Consider this: The primaries are just beginning (sort of). You play to the extremes in the primaries before moving to the center in the general election. (Why people still fall for this boggles the brain cells, but they do.) He's playing to the extremes of his party who vote in primaries.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
"When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."
I don't know what you talking about with that ass washing stuff tho. What you been up to my man?????
I remember talking to a real pretty black girl that worked in adult entertainment. She was prettier than Beyonce. That is not to say that Beyonce is not pretty as a poster elsewhere has stated. But that is to convey the idea of how pretty this young lady was. She was telling me about one of her customers. She said "I didn't know what he was talking about?" Yeah boy! They can do that to ya! Amazing!!!
On the serious side tho, Beyonce although somewhat out there, is not as high as some on the scale today. But in the final analysis, we are surrounded by filth today. Of this, there is no doubt, although some do not want to admit it, and some do not realize it at all. And the deep truth is that we are all like that now. Therefore it has been alluded to, by the one of the most intelligent minds in history, that ultimately if it is in your heart, you have done it already. Because, really it comes from the heart. And if it is in the heart, all it takes is a matter of time and circumstances before you will do it. Therefore I say, we are all like that. All though it is indeed filth, and moreover it is indeed mediocre, we are all like that today. Therefore the same person has advised that it would be wise not to cast the first stone. We should remember that. That is real intelligence. That is the challenge.

I have a cousin turned RINO (I thought I was bad) who found a video of Mike Huckabee performing a raunchy rated x song with a guest on his former TV show. Smh. Lesson learned...again: in politics right and wrong are defined by who you ask and which side are you on (or perceived to be on) compared to the one asked--and people are not committed to their principles, they're committed to their political team.
In the Governor's defense it's entirely possible he had no idea what the song was really about as in fairness it was loaded with double entendre and veiled terminology with words that are sometimes used as a nickname for cats. The question then becomes is the Governor really that naive and honestly thought he was rocking out with a genuine pet lover about his love for cats? Romney, maybe. Huckabee surprises me but to give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe.
Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
Regardless, to return to an earlier theme, we are all a hair's breath away from being exposed for what we really are. I say that as someone who has experienced it personally, and thus I hope that others will listen and learn from my mistakes. It is like a thief that comes in the night that the real tests come. We will not be aware, but it will sneak upon us. That is how the tests come in the real war. Do not think that what happened to Bill Clinton cannot happen to us. We should not gloat. Rather we should humbly ask for mercy that we not fall victim to temptation and that the Almighty One deliver us from evil. If we are to proud too do that, there is no way. It is simply not possible. Perhaps some will hear. But I tell you truthfully, friend and foe alike, what I have said is for the benefit of all. Please, learn from my mistakes.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
also Nota im NOT saying you claimed any of this so i quoted you only for a reference, this isnt directed at you
I'm just pointing out that its the parents fault not beyonce's if 5 year olds are trying to dance like her and its "raunchy", as you say, that makes the parent a moron if its happening frequently.
and something really not related to your post
I also dont understand the role model thing
maybe im just lucky and wired the right way or my parents did something brilliant, which i must also accidently be doing and i have passed on to my daughter
as a child my morals or ideas on how to live my life, right/wrong, how to treat people etc were NEVER impacted by music . . .am i the only one?
nor as any actor, famous person, entertainer who i have liked ever impacted my morals etc.
were there famous people i found inspiring and maybe a "example" of how to do a certain specific thing, of course but if they did other things that were bad or wrong or something i didn't agree with it never made me want to do them or think it was ok etc etc
any kids that are shaped that way, the adults in thier lives have failed them
there was NOTHING i could watch, listen to, read etc that could make me stray from my upbringing, thats just stupid.
I listened to some of the worse music and watched the worse movies (stereotypically moral wise) it had ZERO impact because i had at least ONE good reality based parent/guardian in my life . . .
i was lucky enough to have many but im just saying
its just so pathetic to me that so many people pass the buck, kid gets in to a great college and they take all the credit, kid does drugs or is a criminal and all of a sudden, what music did he listen too, what movies did he watch what did he read etc etc thats all horsecrap! lol
"SOME" of my favorite music was about "drugs, **** the police, killing and sex with bitches"
today i have two degrees, im a single father with full custody and a perfectly clean police record
drugs i have participated in that are illegal? underage drank in my day and i have tired weed . . .the end
ZERO of those CHOICES came from music, movies, books, celebrities etc
ok rant over lol
I actually make make a thread about this when i have a minute
