That's not entirely true.

Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical figure. But was he a Prophet? Messiah? Revolutionary? ... Crazy Person?

This guy was literally 10 times better than Obama in understanding our economic problems.



Unemployment basically stays stable for one month at historic highs and people are giving him high fives? I got news for you, you would be happy with a shiny piece of crap if that's the case. America CLEARLY chose the wrong Democrat for office.



Bill has supported pretty much everything Obama has done. When he was on Larry King he was praising Obama.

Everyone who pretends they know more than Obama's administration with their own way of getting us out of this mess, would've had us in a depression with no signs of recovery right about now. Its a joke how much some people criticize and yet their plan was letting everything fail where unemployment would be 100x's worse. Companies don't reinvent them self overnight, it takes decades.

Speaking of which, wheres Hawker to comment on this?

Im talking about Jesus the Christ... The sun of God and the light of the world... the savior of mankind.....

If you can prove that Jesus of Nazareth existed, then you should be able to prove he healed the sick and brought the dead back to life and he walked on water...

the only place you can find anything close to a confirmation of jesus christ in reality is Josephus are really all there is.. I would think if Jesus existed he would have garnered a bit more attention for raising the dead and healing the sick and walking on water..Josephus works are very suspect also..


also the stories involving jesus are obviously lifted from older stories.... you know this already...

many of the objects discussed in the bible existed in other religions before hand... (the ark of the covenant for example was actually and egyptian artifact)

Unemployment rate includes people actively looking for a job. If someone stops looking for a job, they are no longer considered 'unemployed'.

Basically Christianity is a conglomerate of all the older religions and their fables and traditions. The Christmas tree and all the other Christian Holidays are derived from older pagan religions Christianity absorbed or destroyed.

question. Do you get any benefits? My understanding is that they work you the max hours they can without considering you full time (and benefit eligible). meanwhile encouraging their employees to get their benis through government assistance. THis has all been documented as practices by walmart, but I wonder if its isolated or widespread. Or if its changed even with the negative press they received.

So it's not ok to critique Obama's admin. but it's ok to critique what a real conservative would do?

Ok...

Everyone that pretends they know more than the Bush administration is stupid. Dont critique the iraq war. You didnt know what's going on. Dont critique the patriot act. You're not smarter than Bush. Dont critique his tax cuts. Dont think you know what's you're talking about.

Nobody ever said that letting companies fail would lead to f*cking candyland straight off the bat. And companies take decades to reinvent? Got any examples of this? I would say 7-10 years tops.

You'll be singing a different tune in the future. Trust me.
