Just an aside to those of you debating the whole "god thing" as it were,

All of you seem to be fairly intelligent (even Zengum) yet you are engaging in a debate about god without ever agreeing on a definition of god.

That seems stupid and pointless to me.

How do you define god? <-- see my new thread, coming soon to a forum near you.

We have one of those "My-business" sign-guys in our town
... a computer repair store run by "Kevin, the Geek"

It hasn't dawned on him yet that his entire livelihood is based on the development of the transistor.

Ummm.... I don't think Kevin invented the transistor... at least not all by himself.

Didn't Bell Labs (RIP) invent the transistor?

The left exaggerates the value of government and the right minimizes it, but both use its violence for their parochial goals.

"I don't like Obama".

That's pretty much all it meant.

I think it's quite amazing how the Republicans (and/or Right) can come up with short phrases that define their point of view.
The Democrats (and/or) the Left get all involved in explaining why that phrase is misleading or wrong.

The Dem's haven't learned yet that if you have to explain it (a joke)... it ain't funny.




... See there, I just did it too.

You would think so, but if you look at the picture, he in a fairly rural area, so most people there will be conservative. Also, he's in the building supply industry, and from what I've gathered visiting bulletin boards for home builders, they tend to be more conservative than your average person.

I'd bet that his customers closely mirror the Chick-Fil-A demographic. He's probably only turning away about 10-20% of his customers, and he might be attracting an equal number of new customers.

Only the ones who learned how to read.

Guess they all taught themselves, eh?

His customer's may not have convenient alternatives, and probably are more concerned with price than his politics.

Oh, and probably much of that lumber he's selling was cut on government land.
