Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

TYPO: "Principled stand"  (Why is there no "Edit" feature on this page?)

Sorry...it's difficult to type and proofread with a cat standing between my hands and eyes and the keyboard. As soon as I sit down here, he hops in my lap, but won't lie down.

I am suspicious of two things: 1) Democrats with no backbone; the ones who are afraid to make a principlesd stand on civil rights and fiscal issues. (Or have been in DC so long thay have no principles. And 2) That the GOPhers are parading their looniest candidates now, and then later on will bring on a surprise dark horse candidate who sounds like he has something like a brain by comparison.  The middle of the road Republicans (if there are any remaining) and independents might see such a person as presidential material, and vote for him/her out of relief.  Especially if the propaganda against Obama gets to be as vicious as I know it will.

All the accusations against him ("Muslim," "socialist," etc.) are ALL codes for the "N-word."  That's what they hate the most about him; his pigmentation. As if that had anything to do with ability to govern.

He IS a brilliant man, but he has always been too xian for my peace of mind.  Hard to understand considering that his mother and grandmother were freethinkers.

Wow. That article really shows why there is no way in hell I could vote for any of those candidates. I lean kind of to the libertarian side (with a little L), so I'm not a big fan of the Democrats either. But these Republican candidates just scare me to death. Their hypocrisy just sickens me.

President Obama's proposal to raise taxes on the $250,000+ set has actually polled very well among voters. It's Congress--comprising millionaires beholden to other millionaires--who continue to vote against middle-class pocketbooks. It remains to be seen whether this sort of polling will translate votes for candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Alan Grayson.

Comment by Natalie A Sera on November 20, 2011 at 5:41pm

Charles, you're probably right. Law #3 is the only explanation for why Obama's proposal to tax those making over $250,000 a year was rejected. It wouldn't have affected the vast majority of us at all, so why was it unpopular? So now they've rephrased it as taxing millionaires, but the original proposal would have raised a lot more money without hurting the working poor and middle class at all.

Comment by Charles W. Huffman on November 20, 2011 at 3:45pm

Natalie A Sera...Be careful what you wish for....The ignorant conservative voter can identify with the ignorant candidate....I believe that's Ronald Reagan's law #4 , Law #3 is the ignorant conservative voter always votes his prejudices over his pocket book ALWAYS................. These are real and followed by the Republican Party since Reagan.....That's why they have been successful.

Comment by Natalie A Sera on November 20, 2011 at 1:17pm

Well, in a perverse way, I'm hoping the Republicans nominate the looniest possible candidate, because then maybe the majority of not-too-bright American voters may actually see that, even though he's imperfect, Obama is the better choice. And further, I hope they see that loony Republicans have consistently obstructed every single thing that Obama and the Democrats have tried to do to improve the state of our economy. But maybe I'm being too optimistic, because I have talked with too many "normal" people who really don't have ANY idea of what government does, should do, and what the Constitution really says. :-(

@David Witt, I read the article, and the tone is really scary.  Watching the thanksgiving family forum now, and OMG they had the female Congress woman poor water for all of the men.
