Election results from Indiana and Wisconsin

by Rodan ( 260 Comments › )
Filed under Elections 2012, Progressives, Republican Party, Tranzis at May 8th, 2012 - 7:00 pm

Progressive Republican Senator Dick Lugar is in the fight of his life against Indiana State Treasuere Richard Mourdock. So desperate is Lugar, that he’s asking Democrats to vote for him!

This thread is to discuss the results of the Indiana Primary and the Wisconsin Democrat Primary where Big Labor’s Choice to run against Gov Walker has been falling behind in the polls, that’s right folks, CHAOS in the Democrat Party!  The Dems in Wisconsin aren’t buying what Big Labor is selling.

    Not sure about going back to work, but we had a great talk for a couple of hours. He finally has all the regulatory permit stuff finished and is now just waiting for the official sign off. He said he would try to let me know something in the next couple of weeks if not sooner.

    Good to see that Dick Lugar is a goner! It is time to purge the party of these “reach across the aisle” RINO’s.

    Although I am forced to be part of a labor union, I have donated $50 to Scott Walker, and would encourage everybody here to support him if at all possible. Wisconsin is the first battle in the war against big labor, and it is crucial that we win this one.

No processed foods for me…the thought creeps out. No fast food either because of the sodium but that isn’t a big deal, I don’t eat that garbage anyway.

    milk thistle protects not cleanses. Silymarin is both an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. it is unclear if it actually does anything.

    hold on, i just said that milk thistle isnt a cleanser, it is a protector tho.

    there have been no official medical large N studies confirming it works, that said, there are plenty of studies that can show it helps. clear it with your doc of course.

    Lugar called Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget proposal a “remarkable plan … [that] certainly bent the curve back toward the balanced budgets,” while touting his votes for Ryan’s last controversial budget plan in 2011. He assailed executive-branch regulations on businesses: “You almost have the feeling that folks in those bureaus think it’s now or never in terms of trying to control businesses,” said Lugar.

    For me it is getting close to the time that the GoP has to start rolling out the Obama attack ads daily. They need to be slick and to the point. A lot of bloggers out there have some good video commentary up. The sad part though is that the GoP leadership is still unaware of what a blogger is.

    To me though that is the definition of modern liberalism. Trying to deconstruct and destroy anything not explicitly relevant to their present day needs. They judge the past by modern standards. A sensible person should be able to accept how bloodthirsty the past has been. And at the same time recognize people have evolved. To some extent. The 10 commandments are a fundamental linchpin of not just religion but of history.

According to some things I have read, even though Jesus was divine, he was still HERE as a human man and it would have been normal for a Jewish man of his age to be married. I don’t see that as too far fetched. I appreciate the fact that the book made me think. And why not a child from their union? The word “vessel” has many meanings. Just food for thought, at least to me. Doesn’t change my opinion of what I have been taught, just added to it.

Part of that whole free will thing I guess.

    An idea I personally do not ascribe to for this reason. The concept that the Jewish and Christian Scriptures have any value above being metaphysical works of philosophy is that the writers had the words of God himself breathed right into them. This is what distinguishes them from metaphysical philosophy.

    Therefore by logical extension as those books were completed the same God who breathed those words through the various writers also would have exercised editorial control over what was or was not included in the final compilation. Though men seemed to decide which books to include and which to exclude, it was in fact the exact same Spirit making those decision as it was who guided the hands to write those books.

    To think or suggest that God either did not or could not do this is to argue against God having been the divine inspiration behind each book in the first place, and thus reducing the Bible from a divinely inspired text, to just another collection of metaphysical philosophies.

    I don’t trust that to mankind. It all may have been presented to them, but in the long run, it was men who decided what goes in the bible and what didn’t.

    Then by logical extension you cannot trust one single word written in the Bible, since every single word was written by men. It is utterly illogical to believe that God could cause what he wanted to be written in any specific book, but unable to control which books were included in the final text.

    He either could or he could not, if he could not, then he also could not control what was written in each Book. Ergo, you must either accept5 on faith that the Bible as a compiled work was done exactly as God intended, or that none of it was.

    @ NoThreat2U:

    No..not too, too Divine. He suffered the human weaknesses and battled those weaknesses. He was born without orginal sin too. Did he not weep for his friend that died? Did he not suffer? Of course he could bleed. But, big but he also was Divine so big difference and he knew his purpose for being here.

    True he was fully a man, but and it is a big but he was here for a purpose and I don’t think he married, remember he was also different because he was Divine. To me the DaVince Code just made people think in the wrong direction.

    hollywood is not a place i would look to for spiritual guidance

    Excatly. The DaVince Code put more doubt into people about God’s Divinity.

    I never saw it actually. I never shot heroin either. And I don’t tweet or do facebook. Mama didn’t raise no fools. If it looks like shit & smells like shit I don’t need to taste it to be sure.

    He suffered the weakness of the human condition but he at the age of 12 dazzled the priests in the Temple with his knowledge. Does this not tell you he was different????

    Yea, but then again, cocaine is pretty fun when you first start using it too, and we all pretty much know how that ends up. :shock:
