    It's great to see the unbiased ,impartial reporting of John King and CNN putting Romney surrogates on the hot seat just recently asking for Romneys stance on immigration and getting nothing,they counted 16 times that they were side stepping this hot issue.They even found out some Romney stratigists were upset that Romney hadn't come out publicly and made a statement ,even thou he's come out publicly backing this issue in the primaries siding with Brewer saying its an ideal model that should be used nationally.So how do these hypocritical republicans spin their way out of this one,I'd like to see this from the premiere flip flopper,republican wise,Kerry as Democrates was called a supposid flopper himself but he's just a minor leaguer compared to Romney,the Mormon elitest flipper,who has no shame!!!

    Romney's stance on immigration is no mystery. He believes, and has taught, that the Jewish Temple destroyed by Rome in the yer. 70CE will be rebuilt in N. America, and his god Jesus will rule the earth from there, with no international boundaries for legal or illegal crossing.
    President Obama does not believe this horse puckey. He believes that when you die, you aren't really dead, that YOU could be burning alive forever in a place called "hell" in some modern bibles.
    You need to decide NOT who is the "lessre of two evils", but which man is the greater of two holy's. 🙂

    Nobody on this earth can really know what another person believes, concerning their faith, so it is wise not to post as fact what you THINK they believe. Tsk tsk. Bad form, what? Unless, of course, obama discussed his position on heaven and hell with you, which is highly doubtful.

  4. Colorado Springs Fire Update

    (since CNN won't report certain things, I do)
    The entire NW part of our city has been evacuated. Dozens of homes and businesses have been destroyed as 65mph winds fed the blaze yesterday, combined with the hottest day in the history of our beloved city...101 degrees, 5% relative humidity.
    Roughly 1,000 firefighters are now fighting this fire, with even more scheduled to arrive today. No reports of injury to anyone, other than loss of property. Thank you brave men and women for risking your lives on our behalf, and thank you USA for sending us help from all over.
    Some 40,000 have been evacuated so far, roughly 10% of our citizenry.
    @CNN. Pls. report this fire and update the even bigger fire burning west of Denver. ty (it's not like these fires are in Yemen or Libya, you covered those fires from day one. How about reporting American "fires" like the actions of domestic terrorists for a change)

    *President Obama and Romney's religious LEADERS (plural), rather.
    If you aren't familiar with what these men believe, you haven't been paying enough attention to them and their unkown gods.

    Many tolerate the sinful behaviors of their neighbors, even viewing it fashionable to have gay friends... all the while secretly believing that their neighbors will burn in hell for what they do.
    Most Americans beiieve in "Hell", while at the same time tolerating and cavorting with those they believe will burn there some day, alive, and forever.
    Odd view of everlasting life, this that most of you have.

    Looky at how when a real person posts that which you already know... (most believe as Romney and Obama, that you never really die, you just go-on living in hell or heaven)...but are too embarrassed to talk about, rather than defending you "hellfire doctrine", you attack me, Philip.

    Hey is spelled H E Y. You also must enjoy it, since you keep answering. Don't like to be criticised, do you? Well, I don't like being called a troll because you DON'T know me. Oh, PS: there isn't any ell hell, so can it, please? And if you STOP attacking everyone's beliefs, they may STOP attacking you!

    If I were female, you would see me speaking-out more about that which happens to young catholic nuns, for example, than that which happened to me.
    I AM an adult survivor of mental, physical, se xual, and spiritual abuse, most of which came at the hands of men calling themselves "christians".
    Really, you folks should be glad that I'm not a woman! Child abuse damages a youngsters emotional growth. Heap that on top of a womans deep emotions. he he 🙂 think; domestic violence woman scratching your eyes out as opposed to my trying to open them to reality.

    Hi
    II understand that the supreme court's duty is to let us know the law, as they are most qualified.. Why is it then that there are differences of opinions amongst them? Isn't the law the law????

    @Superman. I was speaking of the hellfire doctrine required to be taught before an organized religion is allowed to be a member of The World Council of Churches that most all religions calling themselves "christian" are members of. NOT this "hell on earth" we currently live in.
    Nice try though.
