Al Franken is falling further behind. I dunno which precincts are still to report or who they might favor, but there's 69% in and he's down by almost 40,000 votes.

Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

Dude, you don't need so much space between each line, lol.But seriously. 1700's and 2000's. Things have changed. I think a few revisions couldn't hurt. I can't even tell you what they would be, but clearly the world has changed. If that causes you to be speechless, then so be it, but it makes quite a bit of sense to me.

You're right, the bible was given to the prophets and the apostles straight from god, in the Modern, dumbed down English of the Living Bible, with no alterations or controversies of translation.

Seems to me like the Obama statement is pretty obvious. Does anyone think the document is perfect? The authors didn't even think it was perfect, which is why they made it changeable.

Nice OP Balloon Guy. I thought John McCain's speech was really good too. Overall I think this was a positive campaign and a successful exercise in democracy. (ok fine, cop, republic-ism :club: )

I will laugh, El Guapo, because while I do like you, I think everything you say about politics is insane and extreme. You think bill clinton is a mass murderer, FFS, I can't take you seriously at all w/r/t politics.
Really? You think I am the extreme one? Out of all the conservatives here, I am the extreme one?The Clinton thing was just to get people riled up, go back, I didn't even defend it.

Unfortunately the only way to change it requires more than is possible these daysSo we would first need to change the part about how to change it

that was a great 1st post BGI thought that McCain's and Obama's speeches were well stated. Obama will make a great President. Congrats on your choice America

I didn't say you were the extreme one, El Guapo. It's not a one person club. And yes, when you call Obama a facist, and play the Adoph Hitler card, that makes you extreme.
