By popular demand, we created this forum to cover almost any topic your heart desires. The Forum name, "Open Mike" refers to the tradition that some comedy and music clubs have of offering all comers the opportunity to perform live impromptu at their establishments, with any material they come up with that is consistent with the theme and policies of that organization (in our case, the Mission statement in "Read Me" section), We'll even consider stuff not consistent, if you can persuade us that changes are needed.

He told us he was Christian to get elected. His words and actions say otherwise. He lied.
Recently, while I was working in the flower beds
in the front yard, my
neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she
wanted to be when she grows up.
She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked
her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride!
"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until
you're President to do that!" I told her.
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull
weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to
the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give
him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in
the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the
work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents aren't speaking to me.
His throwing Wright under the bus and not going to church after that was a clue to me.
News is breaking out all over, tying the fraud Obama into a neat box. Murder now is the instrument of choice to try to stem the flood of information of frauds as numerous as the stars in the sky.
On this topic, I'm waiting for the coroner's report.
Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S
A Catholic friend sent this to me. It was distributed by the U.S. Congress of Bishops.
"O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ. Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society. We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage on making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith. Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us---this great land will always be "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Actually, that is Pastor Joe Wright's Prayer That Stirred Protest In the Kansas Legislature:
Wow- this was a shocker to me. I had heard that Roosevelt did things to promote war, but I had no idea how much.
