    Good! :eusa_clap:

    The GOP needs that infighting as much as it needs a hole in the head but that is exactly what the doctor ordered as far as the Obama team is concerned. Let the bloodbath begin!

    These aren't the regular, traditional middle eastern Christians. These are American right wing Christians. A totally different religion.

    Let him die
    Feed the poor and they'll breed
    applauding executions
    Ayn Rand
    Every man for himself

    These aren't "Christian" beliefs, at least not the Christianity we know. Even Bishops and Nuns have complained about what Republicans are doing. Jesus would never say corporations are people.

    I'm waiting for Sarah Palin to throw her 2 cents in by coming out in favor of Akin's right to free-speech.

    I wish Akins would retire.


    Sadly, we're a nation of sex making birth control needed. To make matters worse is we're also a nation that has such men that love to hurt people for it, so abortion within this case is just reality.

    These people need to understand these two concepts.

    1# A good economic system=high standards for the poor and middle class. Look at America next to the rest of the world.
    2# Well, hopefully we have a good educational system to make sure they're a benefit to society. Part of a higher standards of 1# Will lead to more food for them.
    3# What do you think we should do to the murderers and rapist? Pay for them to remain in prison for the rest of their lifes???
    4# Yeah, you have a point.
    5# Well, isn't the concept of America based on that?

    Akin has a right to free speech, and he has the right to inherit the consequences of it.

    The Dixie Chicks learned it and still survived, making fun of their detractors.
