    I am sad, after the interview John Roberts did to job arpallo. It was very clear that John Robert supor arpallo poin of view. I am american sitizen but also human. The Bible teaches that God does not discriminate or show favoritism.Every person is a unique creation of His, and He loves each one. acknowledge that man, as God’s special creation, has been blessed with certain “human rights.” Any true student of the Bible will be stimulated toward ideals such as equity and justice and benevolence. America’s founding fathers put it well: “all men are created equal . . . endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” Such a statement accords well with Scripture. The Bible says that man is created in the image of God

    It is ludicrous to me for people to blame the school lunches for making students fat, when these same students walk into a convenience store and get a 500 calorie bag of chips and a 32 ounce coke for a "snack". 32 oz. cokes used to be a bottle that three of my friends and I shared.

    Why don't we have a fair tax. Then we would not worry about whether someone will get a nomination so they could pay their taxes. We would not have to worry about illegal immigrants or April 15. People would pay as they go. The more you buy the more you pay. If only about 49% of people pay taxes, what would actually happen if all Americans paid taxes. I am not real smart, but if there are around 300 million people in the United States and each one paid on the average of $100 a year. That is 30 billion dollars. So simple even a congressman can do the math.

    It does not matter what health care reform plan congress comes up with, I will go with anything. As long as both the representatives and the senators have to be on the same plan. They do not care because they are on a different plan. They would care if they had to be on their so called plan.
