    Palintwit-where are you? I just watched a liberal channel with the news that Sarah Palin likes the white stuff and not snow, snorting it off a 500 gallon drum, before sh got her snow mobile. She had an affair with Tooood's best friend (unconfirmed). And she drilled Glen Rice a Michigan basketball player, a month before marrying Tooood, in a dorm room, at her sisters' college. Can we not count on you for the Palin news anymore? Is she going to run or not?

    Ok, the FBI raided the solar panel company that Pres. Obama touted new way of thinking about energy what did they find? Any Money, like 550 billion laying around?

    Perry got 377,000 dolhairs from Merck, not the 5,000. he told Bachman, Sunshine act or does the Texas people not have that law?

    Ok, Bachman says the HPV vaccine causes mental disabilities, not the words she used. Has this woman been found? Bachman is off the deep end when she tries to prove her point. Why does she not bring these people on camera or get their names at least? Fictional person?

    Palin and Bachman are both morons. If either one were to get elected, I would actually believe 12/21/12 would come to fruition.

    Of course the money isn't lying around. What's not in an overseas bank is in Obama's re election fund.

    And Obama certainly isn't the brightest crayon in the box either so 12/21/12 could still happen if he gets re elected.

    @Scottish Momma: You ought to lay off the liberal news channels it's rotting your brain. Try some credible news sources like your local newspapers and major network news channels instead of the garbage your watching.

    @Alan- Has Palin denied it. Has the FBI let out any news about the money given to the solar panel company? Has Perry let the reporters look at his campaign contributions? And has Bachman produced the women who could support her claim of mental handicapped been produced? All either out of their mouths or locally reported. So what is your point?

    @ Scottish Mama, I hope not! Yesterday got really ridiculos with the blog about the 7.3 earthquake. I'm religious too, but I know the Bible well enough to know thar there are yet unfullfiled prophiecs. These world catastrophies may be signs of the time, they will get worse, but they are not what will usher in the very last days.

      I noticed when you were mentoring that you sited a seal. I am not religious . I do study and know many religions and have brought my children up to examine religions and get to know them. I think what we need now is tolerance of each others religions, or we will fail each other with petty bickering.

    @ Momma, Religion, is the way in which each of us VIEWS the word of God and even more so attribute him as DIFFERENT persons.
    There is only one God to me and he is the LIGHT, LOVE AND BIGGEST DARN HUG, you'll ever get. 🙂

    @Jazzzzzzzz-Glad it gives you comfort Jazzzzzz. Which religion came first. All other religions are off shoots. Just like mormons and Jehovah witnesses. All call him something different. Maybe there is one god and everyone has the same god. The bible is written by man for man. Many things that were written were taken out or detroyed so your reaking of the bible is only a portion of the bible. Time waters meaning down and Time changes meaning. Living a virtuous life is the same. Living your life the best way possible is what is important.
