Looks like the people in America know greatness when they see it. No wonder
the demoncrats can't win elections anymore. If this list is any indication
they may never win another election again. America loves the GOP.

You're absolutely right. It also helps someone to have a good
sense of humor to spot the fraudulent nature of his posts. I read
a conservative impersonating a liberal, and he really had people
mad as hell. He'd say stuff like "abortion should be legal for up
to 24 weeks /after/ birth. It was funny. Has anyone ever listened
to the Phil Hendrie Show? He is both the host and the guest, but
people call in thinking it's a real guest, and mad as hell, because
this "guest" is saying some really outrageous things. It's hilarious
sometimes. Same kinda thing, but no agenda, except to be funny.

I never have understood how people could take all that Skull &
Bones talk seriously, anymore than friggin Animal House. It's
just Animal House with richer kids, and not as wild. A joke.

The seriousness is part of the bit. Honestly, they might as well have called
it the He Man Woman Haters' Club.

Dude, it's a college secret society - name one thing in college that is
serious.

Then you may do so without saying "Jeb Bush is no Christian." That's not for
me or you to know or decide.

Was Jeb even in S&B? I would dispute the murder charge as well. Leaders of
nation must act in their nations interest, and the Bible is filled with
examples of the Lord both directing and supporting such actions.

One can be opposed to policies or acts, even consider them un-Christian,
without questioning their faith. Who among us can stand up to scrutiny of a
perfect devotion to our faith? That doesn't make us faithless...

Oprah got rich in the 80s by putting bullshift ideas in womens
heads, making them feel their "man" was doing them wrong,
and actually broke up a lot of previously happily married couples.
Day after day after day, it was "is your man cheating on you?
Here are the signs", and "the men who hate women, and the
women who love them"(look it up)and, well, you get the picture.
She became very wealthy off this destructive trash tv, and then
slyly morphed into her angelic, matriarchal airs.
Reminds me of exactly the way that mafia godfathers evolve.
They get rich off their low-down activities, then put up a
legitimate 'front' in an attempt to be respected as an upstanding
citizen, their kids going to expensive schools, etc. etc. etc.
Oprah is no one to look up to, IMHO.
