Libertarian Billboard Compares Obama To Batman Shooter

Libertarian Billboard Compares Obama To Batman Shooter
KBOI2.COM
A billboard in Idaho likens Barack Obama to James Holmes.

A billboard in Caldwell, Idaho, is causing an uproar. The highway advertisement compares President Barack Obama to alleged Batman shooter James Holmes. Attempts to get the billboard removed have been unsuccessful.

The billboard has the image of Holmes on one side with the message “Kills 12 in movie theater with assault rifle everyone freaks out.” On the other side is Obama’s picture with the message “Kills thousands with foreign policy wins Nobel Peace Prize.”

The controversial display was funded by a group honoring the late Libertarian Ralph Smeed. Maurice Clements, one of the individuals behind the billboard’s creation, said that America needs to be reminded that many have died during Obama’s Presidency.

“We’re all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we’re not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan,” he said.

When asked about the opposition to the message, Clements admitted, “Maybe it was poorly done.”

After the shooting in Aurora, Colo., “The Dark Knight Rises” has been falling at the box office. “The Dark Knight,” the 2008 Batman movie, took in $533 million. So far, “The Dark Knight Rises” has generated $289.1 million.

    LIBERALS ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE STATE OF IDAHO LOOK BAD WITH THIS ARTICLE. THE TRUTH IS, THE BIRACIAL PRESIDENT IS EXPONENTIALLY WORSE THAN, James Holmes.

    • Ron r

      enlighten us Uncle Ruckus A Horton. You seem to know all yet know nothing.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Ron r,”

        OBVIOUSLY, THE PEOPLE OF IDAHO WANT TO STAND BY James Holmes – IDAHO IS A “white” STATE, James Holmes IS A “white man.” IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE. Barack Hussein IS A “COLORED” MALE BORN IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY – THE KENYAN SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE, DIRT.

    • Rocky Night

      Hey your “caps lock” button is stuck again.

      • Templar

        Rocky you’re so trivial to POINT OUT CAPS STUCK.! SO WHAT??

      • Gerry

        May that way you understand.

    • Tom Cook

      Horton hatches the truth.

    • SJJolly

      Mr. C.A. Horton: When was the last time a U.S. president didn’t have at least one war or millitary action during his administration? Secondly, you don’t see any difference between being the Commander-in-Chief of some military action powerful national interests want to happen, and being a gunman blazing away at defenseless people purely for personal reasons?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “SJJolly,”

        WHEN EYES SEE SKIN, THAT IS A VERY POWERFUL THING. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE COLOR OF THE SKIN YOU SEE, THERE IS NO PSYCHOLOGICAL WAY TO “GET AROUND THAT.” PREVIOUSLY, I HAVE MENTIONED IN ANOTHER THREAD I DO NOT LIKE THIS PRESIDENT’S SKIN-COLOR.

        I AM HUMAN. I HAVE BIASES. TO HIDE FROM THEM WOULD ONLY HURT ME.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    “Ron r,”

    SINCE YOU ARE “black,” I OWE YOU AN HONEST ANSWER. I A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y HATE “black” PEOPLE! PERIOD!

    • Doc Sarvis

      You A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y make no sense.

    • RichE

      What would be your reaction if a black person said, “I absolutely hate White People!”?

      • Brad

        RichE I thought that most black people do hate white people. Am I missing something here?

      • Gerry

        Black people HATE white people. Were do you live? Just get around ANY black neighborhood specialy at night, and if you survive, thank the almighty, and walk around if you want to commit suiced. If you drive, do it slow, but be sure you have good insurance for your car and yourself.

      • Joe H

        Gerry,
        I have a scar on my wrist that cut three veins and a tendon. It was put there by a black with a beer bottle. Before you start, if it hadn’t been for another black man, I would probably have another on my throat. Not all blacks are bad. Matter of fact, I know a pretty good number that despise Obambam! I also know a few that fully support Ron Paul!

    • Daveh234

      How do you consider yourself an patriotic American?
      THat is the most ridiculous comment a human being can say out loud.
      What are Black people not as smart as you? Smell funny? What is it that makes them offensive to you?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Daveh234,”

        WHEN I WAS A CHILD, “black” PEOPLE TREATED ME LIKE I WAS A MONSTER. I WILL N-E-V-E-R FORGET OR FORGIVE.

      • Daveh234

        Was it “all” black people or a particular one or a few.
        You can’t hold “all” people responsible for the actions of a few.
        did you do something to any of these other people?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Daveh234,”

        MY FAVORITE FILM IS, “Elephant Man.” Joseph Carey Merrick IS A PERSONAL HERO. LIKE, Mr. Merrick, I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE GROSSLY MISUNDERSTOOD AND MISTREATED BY “SHALLOW” MINDS.

        NEGROES ARE OBSESSED WITH PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. UNTIL RECENT YEARS, NEGROES WOULD NOT ALLOW IMPAIRED-FAMILY MEMBERS TO BE SEEN IN PUBLIC, DUE TO EMBARASSMENT.

        CAUCASIANS ARE NOT ASHAMED OF IMPAIRED-FAMILY MEMBERS. I GREATLY ADMIRE THEM FOR THAT.

      • Joe H

        horton,
        I have a handicapped son so I come in contact with families of handicapped children all the time and what you say is pure bull$hit! I see just as many caucasion children that have been, for lack of a better expression, abandoned by their families in group homes. Those kids are lucky if they see their families once or twice a year. don’t pee on my leg and try to tell me it’s raining!

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Joe H,”

        I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT IMPAIRED PEOPLE IN GROUP HOMES. I AM TALKING ABOUT IMPAIRED PEOPLE WHO LIVE WITH THEIR FAMILIES.

        I STAND BY MY STATEMENTS. A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THIS SITE LOVE TO TWIST OTHERS WORDS. THAT IS SO SILLY!

  • Harold Olsen

    What liberals hate most about this billboard is that it states facts and truth. Liberals have a problems with facts and truth. Truth and facts are not compatible with liberalism and especially not with progressivism. Liberals and progressives deal in lies, lies and more lies. There is no such thing as an honest liberal or an honest progressive.

    • GALT

      IGNORANCE is STRENGTH

      Today’s fun with words segment for the w.i.A.L.F.s is brought to you by:

      “Liberalism is no religion, no worldview, no party of special interests. It is no religion because it demands neither faith nor devotion, because there is nothing mystical about it, and because it has no dogmas. It is no worldview because it does not try to explain the cosmos, and because it says nothing and does not seek to say anything about the meaning and purpose of human existence. It is no party of special interests because it does not provide or seek to provide any special advantage whatsoever to any individual or any group. It is something entirely different. It is an ideology, a doctrine of the mutual relationship among the members of society and, at the same time, the application of this doctrine to the conduct of men in actual society. It promises nothing that exceeds what can be accomplished in society and through society. It seeks to give men only one thing: the peaceful, undisturbed development of material well-being for all, in order thereby to s hield them from the external causes of pain and suffering as far as it lies within the power of social institutions to do so at all. To diminish suffering, to increase happiness: That is its aim.

      No sect and no political party has believed that it could afford to forgo advancing its cause by appealing to men’s senses. Rhetorical bombast, music and song resound, banners wave, flowers and colors serve as symbols and the leaders seek to attach their followers to their own person. Liberalism has nothing to do with all this. It has no party flower and no party color, no party song and no party idols, no symbols and no slogans. It has the substance and the arguments. These must lead it to victory.”

      Let the fun begin……..”To conquer, first DIVIDE!”……and “slip loose the ‘salivating” dogs”.

      • Ken

        “They” want us to believe we’re different so we’ll kill one another off…..if the American people cannot see past their differences, they might as well be nothing more than puppets…..

      • chaz

        You Err Bubbie.
        From the Left you will hear “I feel.” From the Right you will hear “I think.” From the Liberals you will hear references to groups — The Blacks, the Poor, the Rich, the Disadvantaged, the Less Fortunate. From the Right you will hear references to individuals. On the Left you hear talk of group rights; on the Right, individual rights.

        That about sums it up, really: Liberals feel. Liberals care. They are pack animals whose identity is tied up in group dynamics. Conservatives think — and, setting aside the theocracy crowd, their identity is centered on the individual.

        Liberals feel that their favored groups have enforceable rights to the property and services of productive individuals. Conservatives, I among them I might add, think that individuals have the right to protect their lives and their property from the plunder of the masses.

      • BigBadJohn

        Chaz
        “Liberals feel. Liberals care” sounds like Christian values.

        “Conservatives think” Sounds like scientific/atheist values.

        I think your argument falls apart……

      • chaz

        Perhaps you feel that Atheists and Agnostics are incapable of feeling and caring. Nothing fell apart except your warped concept of Christianity. It reaches far beyond two words.

      • Vigilant

        It’s called “plagiarism,” GALTY. Quoting Ludwig von Mises without attribution. You seem to have a penchant for unattributed quotes. Think it makes you look smart? It doesn’t.

        Try throwing in some gratuitous ellipses here and there, as is your trademark, if you want the uninitiated to think those are your own words.

      • GALT

        Way to go ( never, ever ) Vigilant…….you managed to SEE the quote marks and therefor
        recognize an “unattributed quote” when you SEE one……..your comprehension, however has still not improved………Orwell was neither quoted, nor attributed,,,,,,,Shakespeare was
        quoted and unattributed, as was the latin maxim: Divide et impera.

        You also carefully note the the complete deviation of style……….yet, insist on the irrelevant comment of the “salivating” dog, having been stimulated by the “bell”…….
        unfortunately, you never quite seem to “get the point”…….you just respond to the bell.

        Remember this “bell”?

        Where are those (common) law and equity courts?

        Why have you “voluntarily” exchanged “rights” for privileges and benefits, and subjected yourself to fee’s, fines, duties, impost, excises, direct and indirect taxes, which had you not
        done so…….would then actually be “unconstitutional”……..? and to continue to ignore the
        SOLUTION makes you…….like the rest here……a part of the PROBLEM!

        http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/freeman/freeman4.htm

        FREEDOM is SLAVERY……..bye now.

      • Vigilant

        GALTY once again demonstrates his lack of reading comprehension with “Way to go ( never, ever ) Vigilant…….you managed to SEE the quote marks and therefor [sic] recognize an “unattributed quote” when you SEE one……..your comprehension, however has still not improved………Orwell was neither quoted, nor attributed,,,,,,,Shakespeare was
        quoted and unattributed, as was the latin maxim: Divide et impera.”

        Who the Hell mentioned Orwell or Shakespeare? I referred to your longwinded Ludwig von Mises quote from his book “Liberalism.”, idiot. And my admonition is thus: I understand your faux intelligence demands that you quote other people rather than come up with an original thought. Credit the quote, sonny, or suffer being caught for your intellectual dishonesty.

        And then, “Remember this ‘bell’? Where are those (common) law and equity courts?”

        No, dude, only you and TIME salivate when that bell is rung. No one else gives a damn.

      • BigBadJohn

        Chaz,
        Sorry just my warped sense of Christianity

        1 John 3:17-18
        If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
        Colossians 3:12
        Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
        Luke 12:33
        Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

        Versus you the thinking man

        Conservatives, I among them I might add, think that individuals have the right to protect their lives and their property from the plunder of the masses.

      • TIME

        Oh veggie, there you go yet again with your tidy whites in a big wad!

        The very root of the problem is what you seem to miss ( TIME after TIME.}
        Thus its really no differant than preforming the same task over and over and yet expecting a differant result.
        JFTR – thats called “INSANITY”

        Thus as you so well pointed out – the base problem Americans face as a Whole is that so many just like you just don’t give a DAMM. So in your little mind a band aid is best for a nearly amputated appendage. veggie per chance do you work for the Apollo Alliance?
        I only ask as they fight the TRUTH tooth and nail, just like YOU!

        But whats really quite comical about YOU veggie is that some how YOU think you have a bloody clue, thats based on the Mass media outlets that are all owned by the very people who wish to enslave the world.
        But hey as long as you get your D or R in, your happy unitl you find that not one damm thing has changed in a positive way!
        Oh MY is that a case of doing the same thing over and over with the same results or what.
        Its a Rhetorical question so good Heven’s – don’t bother with an answer.

        *** NOW *** For any of you here on the PLD – that do really wish to find the “”ROOT”" PROBLEM so you can understand why nothing ever changes.
        Why it just gets worse and worse year after year.

        Start with what ever search engine you so wish; look up:
        Kelby Smith, – look for his YOUTUBE feed:
        { Introduction Video for the people of the united states.} This is all of about 10 minutes, Take notes look up the INTEL Prove it to yourself
        its all out there in Black and white.

        Mr Smith gives you all the Doucments you will need to explore, as well what they in fact mean to YOU.
        Then just dig, and more will unfold before your very eyes.
        Again get a copy of Blacks Law, the older the better this will aid you in understanding the words penned in all the instruments written by the Criminals in your De Facto Gov. that have made YOU and all AMERICANS SLAVES.
        Hey BTW – look up the Youtube feed of Congressman Allen West telling you what I just said! The TRUTH is out there.

        Then use what ever search engine and look up: William Billy Foust’s Youtube feeds and learn something else POSITIVE.

        If you don’t know whom your enemy is, you you can never win!

        WE all have been “Divided” as well we are near being 100% Conquered!

        Peace and Love
        Its really that simple.

        Peace and Love

      • GALT

        Vigilant ( never, ever )……you are functionally illiterate……..even when the sentences are broken up for your “sound bite mind”………..ding dong, ding bat!

        And keep volunteering to PAY those “unconstitutional taxes” ( mandatory for YOU, of course ) since you haven’t yet managed to comprehend the constitution……Ron Paul in 2012, oops….he hasn’t comprehended it yet either.

        Oh, and one final note……..I actually don’t care…..since I am not and have not paid any
        of those items listed……..UCC 1-207 and/or 308 ” all RIGHTS reserved”.

        Enjoy your privileges, benefits and immunities while they last, ah the joy of being a subject
        of “admiralty and maritime law”…………such is the nature of the w.i.A.L.F.

        IGNORANCE is STRENGTH

      • GALT

        Oh, never, ever Vigilant……..I suppose it is possible that you DID NOT SEE the quote marks that preceded and ended the quote used……….

        Hopefully the next “fun with words segment” will be easier for you…..although with the
        w.i.A.L.F. this is probably overly optimistic……….

        Sadly, one wonders how DavidH will take the news that he is a “liberal”?

        “Do not ask for whom the bell tolls……….” * just salivate, baby.

        * partial quote without attribution

      • Vigilant

        Laughably, TIME for a diaper change says, “Thus its really no differant [sic] than preforming the same task over and over and yet expecting a differant [sic] result.
        JFTR – thats called “INSANITY”

        You mean like you and GALTY posting the same things over and over and over again? If the shoe fits…..

        Well now, TIME, I think I and every august contributor to this site owe you a debt of gratitude. Thanks to your breakthrough methods, we now know that the “youtube feeds” are the be all, end all, unimpeachable sources for truth in this world.

        What a great gift you’ve given us. We no longer need to pore through those long and complicated source documents, nor do we need to rely on the historical record for our facts and figures. Researchers the world over can save many hours of time in verifying and cross referencing their work. They need only list in their bibliographies the URLs to the “youtube feeds.”

        This will certainly simplify conversations and shorten their duration when one conversant need only point to the “youtube feed” for substantiation. The hapless opponent can only say, “oh, you saw it on youtube? Well, I guess I have no argument then.”

      • Vigilant

        “Oh, never, ever Vigilant……..I suppose it is possible that you DID NOT SEE the quote marks that preceded and ended the quote used……….”

        Oh, ellipsis-laden GALTY, your eyes are failing you (as your brain did some time ago). I pegged it accurately as an unattributed quote. Which it was. Even then, you tried to divert discussion away from Ludwig von Mises and bring up Orwell and Shakespeare.

        It didn’t take a genius to perceive EXACTLY what you were attempting to do at the time, but I caught your subterfuge and headed off the ambush. DaveH won’t answer because he’s used that von Mises quote before (and correctly sttributed it). Your fishing expedition and your ambush have been closed down.

        So you failed again with your stupid little mind games, GALTY. Sneaky little a$$hole, aren’t you?

      • GALT

        Aw…….DavidH, the liberal……or in bored speak, libertard……..well, ( never, ever ) Vigilant,
        one salivating dog is as good as another……….all it takes is my name…….and while your 20/20 hindsight dance is amusing……..that you never GET the POINT…..IS the POINT.

        Unfortunately, repetition for the “willfully ignorant” is ‘de riguer’, because while you are being led around by the nose everyday……..first here and then there, as a future victim,
        the foundational problems and the facts never change………..

        But you may be catching on…..when you see GALT……think BAIT and ( read very carefully and attempt to engage brain before responding ) because you are lost before you begin………and each attempted reply, simply tightens the noose.

        Is the TRUTH good for business? and Where in the world ARE those (common) law and equity courts?

        IGNORANCE is STRENGTH ( and YOU HELPED!!!!! )

        Malthus rules……..the “elites” you all keep referring to told you this in 1972 with
        “Limits to Growth” by the Club of Rome, Buckminster Fuller did it shortly there after again with “Critical Path”……..

        Like mushrooms, you all keep coming back here every day…….wasting time, using words
        you do not understand to express so called opinions on “symptoms”………when you are already DEAD…….time, manner and place TBD.

        Well, hopefully you all are helping the puppet masters here find a little more freedom
        for themselves…….while you all kvetch about the “evil elites”……….

        Coming attractions……..warning, warning……….”unalienable” will be re-visited….in more fun with words, as well as the “founding four fathers, or was it six, or fifty six or fifty three…”

        BTW ( breaking news or not depending )”G.W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Al Gore all have state of the art solar powered “off the grid” solar homes. Bush’s has been described as an environmentalist’s dream home, while Cheney’s is equipped with state of the art, energy conservation devices installed by………Al Gore.” ( excerpt from X – Events )

        As always, ( never, ever ) Vigilant, your irrelevant comments…….provide useful jumping off points…….to other topics…….and you will see THE QUESTION, each and every time you post……….since the only way you get the Constitution BACK, is to understand how you gave it up……and are now a VOLUNTEER for your own victimization…….and all other discussion regarding this “condition” is irrelevant……….

        That no answer has been forthcoming…….the silence is DEAFENING……should bring
        pause to anyone claiming to “understand” anything about intent or any of the documents
        that purport to frame what this country is about……..but not surprising when the word
        “unalienable” is not actually understood by most……….

        ” To conquer, first DIVIDE. “

        “What do Conservativives [sic] deal in and please start with Rush.”

        Conservatives are not monolithic in their philosophy. There is one common trait of true Conservatives and that can be distilled into two words, “the Constitution.”

        What Rush says is inapplicable.

        • RichE

          This should be fun. In two words or less add your definition for Conservatives.

    A Democratic President wins the Nobel Peace Prize – Conservatives Freak Out! I’ll tell you that I’ve heard A Lot more made of the Nobel prize given to President Obama from conservatives than I have from Democrats or Liberals.

    • Vigilant

      As you should. Awarding that dubious honor was like giving a film director an Academy Award IN HOPES that he will do something worthy of the accolade. My guess is that the socialist Norwegians who bestowed that prize have had A LOT of second thoughts on that one.

      Remember, they are the ones who awarded it to Yasir Arafat, Jimmy Carter and Al Gore, all totally ineligible by the atsndards of common sense (and common decency).

      OF COURSE you wouldn’t expect liberals to carp about it. In their moral relativism, lack of real world awareness and their love affair with the lie, they are perfectly content.

      • Vigilant

    If this billboard is for political purposes then it sucks and little different than the Willie Horton ads. I reckon the Libertarians can be just as egregious and sinister as the Republicans if that is the case. Wars also suck and we’ve had a string of Presidents who have had American boys die without a sound policy to back them up. I get the message although the pictures should be judged separately and have no connection to each other. In attempting to equalize the two persons the creators are nothing more than pathetic scalawags.

  • skippy

    Well, it is a reminder of the truth. And Geoffrey L. that is in fact the truth. We all remember Barry’s stance on that too, now don’t we?? In ILL if a baby survived an abortion, NO medical attention/assistance was to be given…and he voted FOR that.

    • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

      Wow. Some of you have no idea what truth is at all. Obama voted against the law in Illinois BECAUSE IT WAS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS. Do you have a reading or memory comprehension problem?

    always fun to go back to the Bush files and insert Oblama’s name….

    and declares war on real citizens and patriots

    The sign is offensive but not near as offensive as using a false flag event created by our government to attack our 2nd Amendment or the fraud of a despot globalist seated as president of our country.
    BOYCOTT THE GLOBALIST OLYMPICS!

      The only gun bill President Obama has signed in his term has been one to losen gun laws to allow you boneheads to carry weapons in our national parks. Now that was a bad idea. Why would anyone need a gun in a national park? That’s just asking for trouble. He has no designs on your precious guns so you guys should really get over yourselves.

      • momo

        You need a gun in the national parks because the Mexican drug cartels are growing marijuana in them, and I can guarantee you they are not unarmed.

        • RichE

          Good point.

      • former walmart person

        “Why would anyone need a gun in a national park?”

        LOL, arguably you would need a gun MORE so in a national park where the “precious police” that you liberals depend on to save your disarmed rears would be even more minutes away…

      • CZ52

        Under President Bush the rules concerning firearms in National parks were modified to allow people with a concealed carry permit to carry in National parks. Immediately after being sworn obama suspended that rule “for further study”. An alert member of congress managed to get an amendment attached to the credit reform bill allowing the carry. Obama wanted the Credit reform bill more than he wanted the fight over the amendment so he signed the law. The ONLY change in policy is the allowance of concealed carry by those who have a valid permit to do so. It in no way changes any other regulations concerning firearms in national parks.

        Did you ever hear of bears, mountain lions, bobcats, etc…. I would prefer to be able to defend myself instead of becoming their lunch…. I suggest you start thinking instead of just opening mouth and letting inane drivel out.

      • Daveh234

        So Obama signed the bill and it is now a fact here.

      • Erik

        Yes, you are confused. Glad I could clear that up for you.

      • Joe H

        confused,
        go to the national park in Alaska, have a griz start after your assets and tell me there is no reason to carry a weapon in a national park. Even the locals do it!

    When were young our egos convince us to foolishly believe that everybody will like us as long as we act a certain way , as we mature we steadily learn the truth that most people are programmed to be jealous of or resentful to people of other races or a different sex.
    I once read a comment in a book written over a half of a century ago which stated that all human contact is abrasive and when white poor white people are forced to go to free clinics funded by tax dollars wher all the employees are non white they learn the validity of this statement .

  • Brad

    That national park in AZ is where they have the signs posted not to enter. If you want to go in there you could possibly be kidnapped or murdered by drug runners.

  • Raymond Carl Hardie

    Upon reading some of the posted replies, it overwhelms me with trepidation, and I am grieved by some of the things that were spoken. Race should never really be an issue in assessing the quality of potential in any individual. One of the best patriotic and Christian figure in our country today is a black man named Allen Keyes. I have voted for this man when he ran on the Republican ticket many years ago for president, and I am white, but I look at the character of an individual not his race. Allen Keyes would make a great leader for our country because his record in both private and political life is one filled with unflinching standing on the Constitution and his unwavering faith in God and his willingness to speak the truth concerning Gods word with no apologies.Anyone who wants to know more can go to his web site ” http://www.alankeyes.com , and there you can read his commentaries on current events and political demagoguery in Washington. When we are in Christ , we are brothers, and only by the light of Gods Love can we conquer the enemies of truth , morality , and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Men like Allen Keyes deserve our support every time he speaks for righteousness and truth to members of our government. One last thing, he has debated Obama on several occasions and it was a delight to behold the wisdom this man has. Judge people by their actions and deeds, because that is proof of where their heart is! Matt.12:35 Jesus says ; ” A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. ” This is how God desires we judge who and what people are, and the good or evil He is referring to are those things Gods Word declares either evil or good, not what the governments of the world decide to make, legislate, or embrace as good or evil, it is Gods standard and His alone that we must obey. Allen Keyes has shown himself humble to Gods Word and Gods Will , and I will support men like him anytime, anywhere, and you should do likewise.

      Some of us do not believe in the Magic Voodoo Man in the sky. Please save the sunday school lesson for the retarded children; they might be impressed by it.

      • Jefferson Thomas

        So let me see if I understand what you are saying. By believing in what you believe is not, are you not still using your faith to believe in non-belief? The question comes down to these two options “existence exists” or “I am that I am”. Is there a causeless cause or only what is is? Either way you believe in the infinite and you are trying to comprehend it with the finite.

        Sweet dreams with your mental gymnastics…I will rest in the comfort of my infinite loving poppa.

    Leave the Billboard up it’s not hurting a thing if anything it’s telling the truth…

    • eddie47d

      Twisted truth is not the truth and only inflames which you seem to respond very well to.

      • Joe H

        eddie,
        exactly as it is worded, how is it NOT the truth???

  • dcjdavis

    I would vote for Goofy over Obama, but I think the billboard is loopy. Definitely in the poorest of taste.

    • dcjdavis

      Gotta’ add, though, that I never could really grasp the fact that Obama won a peace prize…For what? I think Pelosi had something to do with it. She must have said, “We have to give it to him first. Then we can see what he does to deserve it.”

      • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

        For stating that he would be willing to talk to the head of another country without pre-conditions. That certainly couldn’t have been said of Bush.

  • Humpty Dumpty

    Where does freedom of speech apply in all of this, everyone? It seems to me as if there’s a lot of criticism going on, plus censorship that’s wanted. As far a I’m concerned, this “politically correct” stuff has gotten us to where we are now: Intolerance, in my opinion.

      The 1st Amendment applies to the Government stopping the freedom of speech by the citizens. Private, personal opinions do not apply to the 1st Amendment. We ALL have the right to state our opinions. Even if it disagree’s with yours.

  • http://tlgeer.wordpress.com tlgeer

    It is this kind of thing that leads the majority of this country to not take Libertarians seriously.

    • Humpty Dumpty

      Duh! Apparently you don’t get the issues involved.

    SO, I GUESS MY COMMENTS PROVE IT DOES NOT PAY TO BE HONEST. A NEGRO CAN HATE NEGROES, TOO. NEGROES SEEM TO THINK ONLY CAUCASIANS HATE THEM.

    SINCE SOMEONE IN THIS THREAD STATED I UTILIZED MY FREE SPEECH TO SHOW “MY TRUE COLORS,” I AM UTILIZING MY FREE SPEECH TO DEFEND CAUCASIANS. I TOLD ALL OF YOU IN ANOTHER THREAD I AM FOND OF CAUCASIAN MALES. I AM NOT ASHAMED OF MY FEELINGS FOR CAUCASIAN MALES, SIMPLY BECAUSE I PISSED SOME PEOPLE OFF. I TOLD THE TRUTH.

    Of course “The dark knight rises” went down at the box office since everyone was too afraid to go see it after the shooting. Nothing you can do about it.
