yea ok miss Stacy we know what wind comes from Woodland park. But yet I was alive and VOTING those days and remember them well real well and very much remember WHO got the ball rolling on NAFTA and Who I voted for then as well as who I voted for in the last election and Damn proud I vote for the person NOT the party. See the difference in me and you windbags I can live with my choices and when Im wrong I can admit it.
I love UCCS. We also rock at Track, Inline Hockey, Rugby, Innovation and Leadership!
siggie, you wrote, "Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today." Indeed! That is because many, if not most, of the unions were organized and led by unabashed communists and socialists. In the 1950's, after the Soviet Union tested a nuclear device, and America officially entered the "McCarthy Era," communists and socialists were drummed out of the unions, paving the way, in many, but not all cases, for unscrupulous opportunists to take over.
Hiring another idiot will not move anything forward, but rather waste resources on someone from California who moved here to "get out of the fast lane."
Its time we stopped this vicious cycle and Focus on making this a great city to live in. Where is a 50 year old considered, "fresh" and "new?" Only in Colorado Springs!
Sorry to try to help, but I'm not a fkn mind reader. You may want to check with references with the Jewish Historian Josephus who recorded what happened during that period of time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus
Arch-conservative President Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon opened relations with "Red China," a policy no Democrat would ever have been able to introduce. He was initiating a divide-and-conquer maneuver, trying to drive a wedge between the two allies, and his policy was certainly instrumental in the fall of the Soviet Union.
Now that the Soviet Union is no more, it is long past time to turn against the "Peoples' Republic," to put an end to the sham they call communism, and to liberate their people, using the same weapon we used against the Soviet Union, economics. But the so-called "job creators" are too busy making record profits from the exploitation of Chinese workers. And so-called "conservative" politicians are responsible for mortgaging the nation to China to fight not one, but two (count 'em!) wars.
These "patriots" are bolstering China's economy. They are today's true "useful idiots!"
gurudori, I do not recall asking for a sermon on Judaism. I am sure I know more about Jewish beliefs and customs than you ever will.
Buried in your diatribe is a reference to Acts:20, which turns out to be the tiny bit of information I had asked for. Thank you.
From what I remember, the Jews felt that claiming that Jesus was the Christ and Son of God (equating him to God) and preaching it to the jews in the synagogue was blasphemous. Judaism has never accepted any of the claimed fulfillments of prophecy that Christianity attributes to Jesus. Judaism also forbids the worship of a person as a form of idolatry- continued below:
Acts 6:11- heard him (Stephen) speak blashemous words against Moses and against God.
Acts 9:1- Saul slaughters against the disciples of the Lord. then Saul gets converted. Vs 20- Saul preached Christ in the synagogues…vs - Jews took counsel to kill him.
23:12- Jews vow to kill Apostle Paul (Saul)
Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for a religious deity or the irreverence towards religious or holy persons or things. Some countries have laws to punish blasphemy, while others have laws that sanction those who are offended by blasphemy to effect their wrath on blasphemers. Those laws may condone penalties or retaliation for blasphemy under the labels ofblasphemous libel, expression of opposition, or "villification," of religion or of some religious practices, religious insult, orhate speech.
In the third book of the Torah, Leviticus 24:16 states that he that blasphemes the name of the LORD "shall surely be put to death". See also List of capital crimes in the Torah. The Seven laws of Noah, which Judaism sees as applicable to all people, prohibit blasphemy.
Judaism's view of Jesus
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Judaism generally views Jesus as one of a number of false messiahs who have appeared throughout history. Jesus is viewed as having been the most influential, and consequently the most damaging, of all false messiahs. However, since the mainstream Jewish belief is that theMessiah has not yet come and that theMessianic Age is not yet present, the totalrejection of Jesus as either messiah or deity in Judaism has never been a central issue for Judaism. At the heart of Judaism are theTorah, its commandments, the Tanakh, and ethical monotheism such as in the Shema — all of which predated Jesus.
Judaism has never accepted any of the claimed fulfillments of prophecy that Christianity attributes to Jesus. Judaism also forbids the worship of a person as a form ofidolatry, since the central belief of Judaism isthe absolute unity and singularity of God.Jewish eschatology holds that the coming of the Messiah will be associated with a specific series of events that have not yet occurred, including the return of Jews to their homeland and therebuilding of The Temple, a Messianic Age of peace and understanding during which "the knowledge of God" fills the earth, and since Jews believe that none of these events occurred during the lifetime of Jesus (nor have they occurred afterwards, except for the return of many Jews to their homeland inIsrael), he is not a candidate for messiah.
Main article: Holy Spirit (Judaism)
The term "holy spirit" occurs only three times in the Hebrew Bible. (Found once in Psalm 51:11 and twice in Isaiah 63:10,11) Although, the term "spirit" in the Hebrew Scriptures, in reference to "God's spirit", does occur more times. InJudaism, God is One, the idea of God as a duality or trinity amonggentiles may beShituf (or "not purely monotheistic"). The termRuach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is found frequently inTalmudic and Midrashic literature. In some cases it signifies prophetic inspiration, while in others it is used as a hypostatization or a metonym for God.The Rabbinic “Holy Spirit,” has a certain degree of personification, but it remains, “a quality belonging to God, one of his attributes” and not, as in mainstream Christianity, representative of “any metaphysical divisions in the Godhead.”
Stacy: Golly, is it fair to bring up Benghazi? The liberals are wetting their pants over this one. If we had an honest media, this would have been a huge story eight months ago. However, the liberal press, not wanting to embarrass their deity, Obama, or their queen, Hillary attempted to bury it. The White House wanted us all to forget about it by refusing to address it. Unfortunately for them, this travesty (and cover up) has legs and has an excellent chance of being blown wide open. Let us hope that justice prevails.
siggie, the one thing you did not say is that any American garment workers have been injured or killed on the job recently, in spite of the supposed modern decline in union morality that you fail to document. You also fail to mention that it is the American garment workers union that is the sole voice in America fighting for safer conditions for the garment workers of Bangladesh, even though the workers in Bangladesh are not members and do not pay dues.
Changing the subject again? How do you I have no opinion on the oppression of Chinese workers? I was not aware that I am required to inform you of all my opinions regarding China before you even bring up the topic, Stacy. I will let you know precisely how I feel about China later tonight, when I have some time to devote to the subject. In the meantime chew on this, it was Mitt Romney who inspected a factory in China and praised their system of slave labor.
K: So, you have licked your wounds from the last ass whooping you received in these pages and, being the arrogant twit that you are, have forgotten how painful it was.
Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today. They care nothing for worker safety and (if one were being honest) nothing for the "worker". All they care about is maintaining their dwindling power base, how much money they can extort from companies, how much they can squeeze out of their lemming members, and how much Democrat ass they can kiss.
Apparently, Stacy, you have never heard of the infamous Triangle Fire.
And speaking of communists, Mr. K, why is it when hundreds of Chinese miners die in a mine collapse, you and Hightower and the rest of the Marxists have no opinion?
Change the subject? Okay, let's go back. You were saying that somehow if there were no unions in America today, that building codes would not exist. Sure makes total sense.
Stacy, can't you read? Did the article in question mention Benghazi, or Bangladesh? Or are you simply trying to change the subject in a vain attempt to distract attention from your indifference to the safety of working people around the world?
siggie, I would wager both liberals and conservatives would be shocked to discover that advocating safe working conditions makes one a "useful idiot" and an "unwitting communist."
Ironically, it is conservatives like yourself who unwittingly aid the communist cause. Most Americans consider workplace safety to be common sense, but once you have explained that it is a vital part of the communist plot to subjugate the world, the American people will say, "Then we are communists!"
Mr. K - where human life is cheap? You mean like in Benghazi?
gurudori, you posted a lot of stuff that I already knew, but did not answer my question, so let me clarify: Does the Christian Bible state that "...the Jews wanted him [Saul/Paul] excuted for converting to Christianity and blaspheme again OT..." or is that statement based on tradition and commentaries?
Indeed, siggie, if not for the unions, those could have been innocent American workers dying in American sweatshops, instead of foreigners dying overseas. Indeed, Stacy, how stupid of these workers not to have realized that resisting dangerous and inhumane working conditions would lead to businesses relocating overseas where human life is cheap.
