A joking matter

Seems that Sarah Palin respects Glenn Beck so much that she has hinted at a Palin/Beck 2012 presidential run. Oh God, how I hope so.

As fragmented and divided as the Republican Party is now, it's an extreme possibility .

When I heard this I became hysterical with laughter and thought if she really wants to be successful she could round out a sure-to-win ticket by appointing Rush Limbaugh as her secretary of state and Bernie Maddoff as her Secretary of the Treasury, along with Lou Dobbs as Press Secretary.

It would be a disaster, but a laugh a minute.

brrrrk,

Ultimately, it is the person who reads the Bible to determine what they believe. I believe in the King James version.

But since we are living in America, you are free to believe whatever you will.

Isn't it great?

Chief: Your reason and definition of "abortion" has got to be the dumbest, ass- backward statement I've ever heard. Your brain makes a true red-neck Hillbilly blush with shame.
A 12 year old "must have the child" in a case of incest or rape? Your head is so far up your ass....
"The "parents" must decide together"....hey, numb-nuts...a lot, maybe 50% or higher of pregnancies, are NOT between "married people". There is NO family unit. There is NO "father".
God, man, where are you from?
No wonder you've driven gdia to the brink of insanity.
And I thought Sid was the dumb one on this board. She's a savant compared to your machinations.

Ohio agencies, cities and other entities reported creating or saving more than 17,000 jobs with federal stimulus money so far, according to the most extensive information released on the program since it started in March.

Nationwide, more than 640,000 jobs have been retained or created from $160 billion in stimulus funds through Sept. 30, keeping on pace to reach a goal of 3.5 million jobs by the end of next year, the Obama administration said yesterday.

"Ultimately, it is the person who reads the Bible to determine what they believe. I believe in the King James version."

Here is a partial listing of King James Version translation errors:

Genesis 1:2 should read "And the earth became without form . . . ." The word translated "was" is hayah, and denotes a condition different than a former condition, as in Genesis 19:26.

Genesis 10:9 should read " . . . Nimrod the mighty hunter in place of [in opposition to] the LORD." The word "before" is incorrect and gives the connotation that Nimrod was a good guy, which is false.

Leviticus 16:8, 10, 26 in the KJV is "scapegoat" which today has the connotation of someone who is unjustly blamed for other's sins. The Hebrew is Azazel, which means "one removed or separated." The Azazel goal represents Satan, who is no scapegoat. He is guilty of his part in our sins.

Deuteronomy 24:1, "then let him" should be "and he." As the Savior explained in Matthew 19, Moses did not command divorcement. This statute is regulating the permission of divorce because of the hardness of their hearts.

2 Kings 2:23, should be "young men", not "little children."

Isaiah 65:17 should be "I am creating [am about to create] new heavens and new earth . . . ."

Ezekiel 20:25 should read "Wherefore I permitted them, or gave them over to, [false] statutes that are not good, and judgments whereby they should not live." God's laws are good, perfect and right. This verse shows that since Israel rejected God's laws, He allowed them to hurt themselves by following false man made customs and laws.

Daniel 8:14 is correct in the margin, which substitutes "evening morning" for "days." Too bad William Miller didn't realize this.

Malachi 4:6 should read " . . . lest I come and smite the earth with utter destruction." "Curse" doesn't give the proper sense here. Same word used in Zechariah 14:11.

Matthew 5:48 should be "Become ye therefore perfect" rather than "be ye therefore perfect." "Perfect" here means "spiritually mature." Sanctification is a process of overcoming with the aid of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 24:22 needs an additional word to clarify the meaning. It should say "there should no flesh be saved alive."

And Chief, there's much much more.............

But as someone once said, "If the King James bible was good enough for the Apostles, it should be good enough for me"

Sid: When you recite your day's events, chapter and verse, try to distill it down to the basics. You're the only one I know of who comes under sniper fire going to the mailbox and is taken hostage at WalMart.

Since 7:41 I have been driving in my car doing my job and waiting and yearning to come home and read some real important thoughts.

Starlight ballroom? I moved here in 1989 and was warned about the dancing places where women go to pick up married men. Is that all ya'll have to talk about?

And you all call me lame! POT (fat pot) calling kettle black. Hmmmmm! I have to work tomorrow or else I'd print my entire life story on here. Guess ya'll got lucky that I have a day job.

D7 shame on your for continuing to bash me when I'm out earning a living so I don't have to collect that darn welfare check anymore. I gave my rights when I got a job.

Did you know that only 3% of the abortions are women/children with incest or rape? Small number compared to number of babies murdered.

"maybe 50% or higher of pregnancies, are NOT between "married people". There is NO family unit. There is NO "father".

Sad to say, Dargent's right. The traditional family has been destroyed. Single motherhood is common and marriage is becoming meaningless. Welcome to the Brave New World.

It's all the gays' fault.
