    I was with a church friend and he told me Obama wants to start a national day of Muslim prayer. Anyone heard of this? I mean what's next, mandatory Islam day. Hindu month. The forth of Koran.

    If people would stop spending time spreading stupid false rumors and spent it doing something actually productive, productivity would probably double in the US...

    Exactly. Obama is not on our side. I've never been more convinced that he is a muslim, socialist, atheist, socialist, ist.

    I am curious what your evidence is, other than that his father who he hardly knew was an ex-Muslim? Obama has regularly attended Christian churches for at least the last twenty years. As for being a Socialist, how is it that Obama has bent over backward to actively protect the profits of the Wall Street bankers and the health insurance companies, and extending the job-killing tax cuts for the millionaires and billionaires? What is it that convinces you that he has built such an elaborate false cover life, other than that he identifies himself as African-American?........................elsullo

    There already is a National day of Prayer. And ANY religion can observe it so why would there be any need or desire to try to create a second one?

    it is my understanding the first one is being challenged in the courts right now. Kind of hard to imagine a second one getting any traction.

    I would not doubt it. I remember when a city in MI, was sued to play their music throughout the city during prayer time. Plus an airport in Kansas City had to put in a footbath for muslims, don't remember which one but it is easy to find. So I would not doubt that at all. We cannot take their rights away as we are America.

    I'm waiting for the day when an atheist runs for high office. Sadly, I think it's going to be a long wait.

    I don't think its possible or even legal is it? Our founding fathers spent to much time ironing out the details in the Constitution to seperate Church and State.

    Perhaps your friend should revist the commandment that speaks to bearing false witness. In my opinion, behind all the animosity toward the president is simply a objection to the color of his skin. He has supported big business..as elsullo has pointed out above, and has adamantly opposed the Muslim extremists we are currently fighting. It is a simple coward's trick to attack him by oblique topics when what is really behind this is simple bigotry.

    Like you I see Obama as a negative force in a system that has a very large impact on our daily lives. Like most all of our "leaders" in Washington, both democrat and republican, he is not our friend. Never was and never will be, no matter what he or they say in speeches. Neither is John McCain, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Diane Feinstein, Sarah Palin, and on and on. Just insert the names of every member of the Senate, Congress and Supreme Court to make the list complete.

    Some of these people claim to be our buddies, but not a one of them gives a tinker's damn about you, me or the vast majority of average Americans. Each and every one of them, regardless of party works in the interests of the people at the top of the heap. Sure, they toss us a few crumbs from time to time, but the lion's share of the goodies go to people with titles like CEO and Owner.

    Both parties have the system locked up so nobody who would actually govern for the benefit of the majority of us will ever be elected. The two parties won't even let anybody else into the debates let alone the White House. It sure would be nice though wouldn't it? Toss all these worthless bums out and replace them with leaders who would lead us to a better life. Take this country back and make it work for its citizens again.

    You cannot be muslim and atheist. They are both exclusive of each other.
    You will NEVER find an atheist strap on a bomb and blow himself up in the middle of a crowd because of a promise of going to haven where he'd be given 47 virgins.

    Yeah, it'll be a while. But we'll get there eventually.
    I always so amused by the "Christians" who are terrified of Muslims. As if every Muslim is a terrorist and there haven't been Christian terrorists.

    If there's any justice in the universe, let's hope that those 47 virgins are virgins because they're too fat and ugly to attract even the most desperate guy. Better yet, lets hope that the guy who blew himself up gets to paradise and finds that he's got 47 virgin clones of his mother in law waiting for him.

    Great picture Chee-to. They're even dressed the way those boys in the middle east like em, minus the mask. I think the third one on the left is the one that beat on my knuckles and pulled my ear for talking in Sunday school 50 years ago.

    Yup, considering there would be no "business" if the government didn't get involved in the first place.

    Do you call having US workers train overseas workers, then firing the US workers, being pro-US?

    Nope, this stuff really pisses me off. I will I had the kind of money that Bill Gates does because I would cure that in a heart beat. When the companies pull this kind of crap they do it because they know most people do not have a choice. It is either lose the job now, or keep your job for some fixed amount of time and then get a cash severance. Most people need the money so they stay. Oh, and if they quit - no unemployement.
    I would love to start a fund where workers that are put into that sort of a position could quit immediately and the fund would pay them their salary until they found another job. It then leaves the company screwed because the workers leave and along with them their skills. No one to teach the foreign replacements.
