Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

The dumbing down of America: The Tea Party and Duck Dynasty. Two peas in the same pod. And let's not forget Honey Boo Boo. No wonder we're becoming the laughing stock of the world. Sorry to tell you, SHRILL, but you can't become a decent human being only on Dec 25 and expect us to buy it. You're the biggest ahole and bigot and religious hypocrite in town. No truce here.

I meant a link to any story on DRUDGE. Sorry.

There is a disturbing trend toward bigotry and outright racism in conservative America, and it is VERY easy to prove. Just find a link to any story and read the comments section. Sounds like talk at a KKK convention. And these are religious folks. Hmmmm.

I hope you realize that Jesus was a communist, if not in name, at least by his defense of the poor. His message would not fit in today's conservative politics.

WHY defend a BIGOT, if Jesus is so important.

If we all had time machines, and could visit this most monumental moment in history, those shepherds in the fields looking at that star would be surrounded by billions of uplifted heads, and those angels would be proclaiming the birth of Christ to not only them, but a multitude of others, right there in those same fields.

That Holy proclamation has been circling the globe for over 2000 years, and is seen and heard again today in so many hearts. Yet, with all of us there on that blessed day, time machines parked bumper to bumper covering hundreds and hundreds of acres, how many of us would've succeeded in elbowing our way up to the manger?

God did give us prayer though, no need for elbows, and we can certainly approach His current throne, through Christ, any time we want to.

Just want to praise the Holy Name of Jesus, and say...

Merry Christmas!

Argue for your lane all you want. Let others argue for theirs as well.

What's that word your side uses? Tolerance right? Where is it? I'd like to see some of that tolerance.

The words against Phil hurt too. Please realize that two-way streets are common, and folks should take heed to both lanes. In places there are as many as 12 lanes or so.

You lane should never trump any other lane, even if it is the "fast" lane.

Leviticus is Old Testament. What Phil quoted quite closely was New Testament. Corinthians, I believe. Christians refer to the Old Testament for history and prophecy but try to live the New Testament. The New Testament is where Christianity really lives.

Merry CHRISTmas everyone!

Again, and my cabin is definitely in a notch of the bible belt, I see many Phils. Often I see women with hair past their their knees. If I ask them about it they say they want to be ready for The Rapture so they can wash Jesus' feet with their hair. I don't judge and I don't care. But Phil has a national platform, and his words hurt. If that doesn't matter to him, so be it, as long as he knows.

He is free to say what he wants. A&E, as his employer, is free to decide whether they want him as their employee. So it comes down to money. A&E stands to lose more than Phil, so I suspect they will figure out a way to accommodate both Phil and the gay community. This has been educational, as it has been posted Leviticus lists 76 sins. I see Phil does not trim his beard or the side of his hair. Does he wear torn clothing? Does he eat shellfish? Does he eat pork? I couldn't care less, but I am curious if he picks and chooses his Leviticus.

Phil was simply speaking what he believes. He wasn't forcing anything on anyone. What part of "freedom" should be disallowed there?

LIVE....and LET LIVE. Do not attempt to force any opinion on the rest of us. I want no person to attempt to force their faith or lack of it, on me, or America. The direction this nation is heading is death and destruction, if we do not change our warring ways. We need to get away from the creepy money machines that propel the issues and favor the wealthy over the rest of us. I see hope in the young folks who stand up for those unjustly singled out for malice aforethought, which is happening now, with a mass protest at a high school over the firing of a 'gay' teacher. Your lifestyle is not my concern, but the direction of this nation IS. Freedom for every person, race, color, creed, music preference, to mention a few. Money must not be THE indicator of the worth of a human, it is enough just being. The Earth, our HOME must be taken care of, at ALL cost, because we all reside here, and there is no place else to go, except for Newt Gingrich, he can go to the moon Alice.

Heading for the Smokies in Western Carolina. Since most of my neighbors there are clones of Phil his comments were not surprising. Using a national platform to express those views is tacky. I've never watched the show, heard of it, will continue to not watch it.

A&E should send him a bill. Get it ? Duck? Bill? That's a joke, son.

Have some Phil-ly Cream Cheese on an onion bagel brother. Lenders makes a good version of those bagels. They might be Jewish too. They carry both up at the Wal Mart.

Lots of gays came out of the closet only to attempt to force lots of us into the closet? Why? What's good about that?

Why can't we all be out of the closet and speak just what it is that we believe.

Any problem with that? Should some of us fire you? Nope. We should coexist and argue our individual points. Ever heard of that word individual? It's a little bit different from that word collective.

Merriam's might have the definition of both. Check them out, as you seem to be against the free speech of individuals, most notably, Christians.

Think about it.

Quacky was fired because he is a hateful bigot. The TeeVee company disagreed with his diatribe, hence the firing.

Well, if you'd never heard of "Duck Dynasty", you have now.

Whatever happened to different strokes for different folks? Only one side of this deal is demanding that your strokes be the same strokes as theirs, and it ain't Phil's.

Was he trying to force anyone to take the same strokes as he? No. Was he simply enumerating some of his own personal strokes, which incidentally are scribed on the pages of the most famous book in all of human history? Yes.

I'm gonna start a brand new town and name it Phil-adelphia.

Go to Youtube and listen to "Phil-adelphia Freedom", but ya' doesn't has to put a dash in there :-)

What does the word Philadelphia even mean?

Ah, looked it up. That's what I thought it meant.

I just can't seem to get out of my own way sometimes, ya' know? It's why I need Jesus as much as I do. If you can, please forgive me.

Love, and Merry Christmas.

Am I frustrated with the direction my (and your) country has taken, absolutely I am. Am I tired of arguing with my adopted hometown-mates? Yep. If I've ever hurt your feelings, I am sorry. The times I've equated you with nothing, I was wrong. When I've insulted your station in life or the results you've achieved, I am sorely ashamed. I don't like me when I'm like that, but often justify it to myself the next day. That ain't right.

In my opinion, God made you with every bit of love he made me with, and every bit of love he made Amos and Freeman with too. I'm nowhere near being the quintessential Christian I should be. I'm so far from the mark, it hurts to even consider where that mark is. If Jesus were the bulls-eye, I wouldn't even hit the board. I would land somewhere way over in the grassy knoll or sinking-sand-trap.

I really love folks. All kinds of folks...with "tough love" I guess. Every one of you included.

Truce to you too Norm. I truly like me best when I'm being nice and friendly with folks. It makes me feel so much better.

Again, I fully realize how brutal I can be...realize how brutal I've been too. Just believe what I believe every bit as much as you believe what you believe. And as Norm says, "to be fair"...you've been a bit brutal as well. No problem. It's just that when faced with brutal, I tend to respond with even more brutal :-)

If I had a big wish for everyone, it would be to truly comfortable and confident in what you believe. If I could take back a lot of the horrible things I've said to and about you who reside left of center in this paper, I would do it this very minute.

I had to learn to argue/debate at a very young age, being one of the middle kids of a 6 kid family. One of the ways I had of getting positive attention was to be funny. I think I've become less and less funny here and more and more combative.
