You are by far the superior parent <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/notworthy2.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=" " border="0" alt="notworthy2.gif" /> I bow to your supierior ability to reproduce. My three children, my dh and I are unworthy to be in your presence. Those of us with an inadequite number of children will refrain from family game night and viewing Christmas lights together... for behold, it is only the domain of the big families. I will now check out our local parks and rec brochure to see what I can sign my lowly children up for so that we can try to forge out some meaning in our humble lives as I seek to keep them from being kids. .... <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sadwalk.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=" " border="0" alt="sadwalk.gif" />
I am not a superior parent as you suggest. I try to do the will of God just as I am sure you do. I am sorry you were offended by my comments. There is no magic number. Only God knows His will for us. I am sure you have fine children. Pax

I'm sorry but you sure don't seem to. It seems that either the political tides go the way you want or you make up really slanderous and unfounded accusiations against politicians and political movements you disagree with.
You are free to disagree with it. However if the larger populace disagrees with you will you accecpt it?
He is my president, right? I did not vote for him. Do I accept him as my president. I have no choice in the matter just like I have no choice to pay taxes. Do I have to agree with it? NO! There is a difference between accepting something and agreeing with something.
And when exactly did I get slanderous?
Do you remember George Bush (the first one)? Where you born then? His phrase to get elected was "Read my lips. No new taxes." Guess what! We got new taxes. Did I agree? NO! Did I accept? Had no choice. Could I speak out and vote? YES! And he was Republican, so I don't pick and choose which parties to disagree with.
[quote name='Hassan' post='1947821' date='Aug 13 2009, 02:23 AM']I don't mean this in a cruel or rude way. But reading your posts you really seem to be divorced from reality. I mean you honestly seem to be living in some melodrama.
No one is trying to make you subserviant to Obama. Like it or not he is the democratically elected leader. The representatives crafting the bill are democratically elected leaders. You seem to ignore this. Pretending rather that they are Stalinist strong men who forced their way into power. I'm sorry you don't like where the country is going. I didn't like the direction the country went in for the last eight years. Sorry if you don't like that, but it's kind of how democracy works.[/quote]
I do like the way democracy works. That is why I want a choice in my health care and I can disagree with them. You all seem to say if we disagree we are melodrama and divorced from reality. Didn't the colonists disagree with the King of England? Why is that okay and this isn't I know Obama is your hero. Good for you. He is my president, too. And the representatives and sentators have a responsibility to represent me in Congress, too. So, they need to know how I feel about these issues. I have concerns and they are not addressing them to my satisfation. Since I am paying for it, I want to have some say in it. What is wrong with that?
I need to get to sleep. I have responsibilities to attend to in the morning and my husband has to go to work. We are not 19 and able to say absurd things as if we know what we are talking about. We live and work in this world and KNOW what we are talking about.
[quote name='fidei defensor' post='1947781' date='Aug 13 2009, 01:39 AM']I was talking about God. You need to trust in God and pray for the best rather than turning this whole attempt at reform into a national debauchery.[/quote]
So, let Obama do what he wants and hope God gets us out of it? Maybe God gave us a brain and a mouth for a reason? Not to be subserviant to Obama!
Oh, do you think the Colonists should have just prayed to God and let England tax them out of house and home?
I really wonder why you trust Obama so much. Are you cousins?
[quote name='fidei defensor' post='1947784' date='Aug 13 2009, 01:41 AM']That would be the part of the reform that says you can keep your private insurance... no one is making you do anything. However, I'm sure the disadvantaged people who can't afford to have insurance will be ecstatic to be able to finally see a doctor.[/quote]
But if my baby is born AFTER this takes effect, I HAVE to put him/her on the government plan. AND we can NEVER change insurance plans again. If we do we HAVE to take the government plan. AND we HAVE to have insurance.
Ah, freedom. The ability to choose if I want the government plan or the government plan.
Ah, freedom. Doctors will get paid to tell my mom to just die for the sake of the country.
[quote name='Hassan' post='1946855' date='Aug 12 2009, 02:04 AM']Where doe the bill say abortions wll be paid for?[/quote]
While abortion advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL, with help from their friends in the mainstream media, have attempted to explain away how the government-run health care plans would pay for abortions, one of their own finally admitted that to be the case. During a Monday town hall event, pro-abortion Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat, acknowledged that the Congressional bills include abortion funding. "Abortion will be covered as a benefit by one or more of the healthcare plans available to Americans, and I think it should be," she said. In a video provided to LifeNews.com by pro-life advocate David Schmidt, local pro-life advocate Ignacio Reyes asks Lofgren about the health care plan. He says he wants to know if the plan would be "covering abortion, which we know that 90 percent of abortions are purely elective, not medically necessary. Why is this being covered when abortion is clearly not health care." Full story at LifeNews.com
[quote name='fidei defensor' post='1947291' date='Aug 12 2009, 05:56 PM']For the love of your God, trust Him! If you believe what you profess, you should be praying, not stirring up fear with lies.[/quote]
Why should I trust Obama? We are praying and we are not stirring up fear with lies. You and others are angry because we are not the sheep being led to the slaughter.
Are you all saying we are suppose to trust Obama? Please, this man said no person should be burdened with a child they didn't want. So kill him/her. And the American people still elected him. Our mistake. Then he admitted his girls would not be under the plan. Why not? Not good enough? Would you trust him? Apparently. I don't.
Town Hall meetings? That is a joke!They just want people to come and tell them how good they are. Then they are angry because people are speaking out. We are not lame. We like the open mic.
I am glad if you like the health care in Canada. I don't want ObamaCare. I would rather have no insurance than to have insurance to pay for more abortions. When are we going to stand up for the unborn and aged? Are we so lame as to deny Christ in these people?
When I would tell my neighbor I was expecting (no. 3 & 4), she went on a 30 minute rant on why she didn't want any more children. It was then I thought there is a sincere desire in most women to desire children. How else would God keep the world populated? Certainly not through ObamaCare!
As far as women who put too much attention on their children and not themselves. I find this in women who have two or three. I know some who cut their child's meat until they were 12 or 13 years old! Then these same parents put so much into their children they are now divorced. Obviously my husband and I have lots of time to ourselves or I would not have as many children! The parents with two or three kids live life through their child's lives. They are in every sport and activity under the sun. My kids have to decide what sport they want to play in any particular year. They are not allowed to be in more than one other activity. This is not to be mean, it is so we have time to spend as a family camping, family game nights, eating watermelon, going out to see Christmas lights, etc. These are just a few of the activities we enjoy doing together. My kids have time to be a kid. They also can decide which sport and activity they want. They are well adjusted. And remember, my kids will pay your Social Security someday. They are hard working and trust-worthy.
I don't need a career to hide behind to feel good about myself. I have time to myself, my husband does as well. We also spend time together as husband and wife and as a family.
When my kids were little, out tv was from the 70's so we had no remote or possible cable (too expensive anyway). We were lucky we could hook up a VCR. Every so often I would unplug the television (which was in the basement and out of the way) for say 6-9 months. My kids didn't miss it at all. Now we have a much newer television (but still no cable) and the only thing we watch are DVDs. That is total control. We don't turn the tv on much during the week (banned during school weeks) and seldom during the weekend except maybe Friday or Saturday night. My kids know they are not missing much. And seriously, when do others find the time?
I have a hard time listening to other parents who complain about the filth on television, but continue to watch it and let their kids watch it too! One of my daughters used to babysit in a house with 100 channels. She would come home (she'd only watch it after the kids were in bed) and tell us that with 100 channels to choose from, there was nothing on to watch! It was boring or filth. EWTN was the one exception.
If we would stop watching it, they would stop producing it.
