    Guns or religion, yes the strawman law will pass but heaven help us we lost the assault weapons ban, oh dear toto what shall we ever do. Potter or Oz? Hmmm my guess says google doesnt like the yellow brick road that was laid out and the red hats and penguins agreed so no money to terrorists and who gets the faithful. That is just a voice from the one who doesnt break hearts but opens them up.

    Yes we have a "french" pope and like the last crushing those who sold women out for quasi peace Game of Thrones does have a Joan of Arc but she serves Katon or katness or whatever that ones name is.

    Man, there are some crazy, CRAZY ugly comments on your Facebook page. I mean, when I disagree I TRY to do it in the most dignified way I can, but I was just looking at some of the comments & was really aghast & kinda shocked at the language of some of these Glenn Beck fans.

    I love that social media gives the Average Joe as much of a say as the bigwigs, but hate how it allows gutless people to just hurl the most abusive language possible at people they don't know & never met. The anonymous Twitter trolls are even worse, but whatever...

    If it makes y'all feel any better, think of all the good that's come of Hustler v. Falwell & FCC v. Pacifica Foundation.

      Well you seem interested in yes Bush and torture but really more about seeing innocent love and faith betrayed for personal fame and selling out American values. Thought kind of artistic, as to Beck stopped paying attention when he tried to explain the evil banks and goldman connections and just rolled my eyes that he is valued. Facebook and Larry Flynt well they made a not to funny swipe at a french museum as well and i can choose who i contribute to at least.

      But Beck gets paid I dont while I have an idea why Cyprus wont be bailed out but whats the value in that and purposefully dont have a facebook page and prefer Pages wife to sandberg on women's issues and what actually makes a difference.

      Why woulf Francoise take Pauls ring?

      The one who advocated the role of women and minorities in church and like Mohammed relied on a career woman for help? Yeah just the Game of Thrones but no all the good characters werent killed.

      Check Lavrov comments on Syria and Schauble on Cyprus as with Netanyahu its likely Cyprus and the other french francoise with a merkel that has some answers on Syria.

    Or had Joffrey actually cut off his own head the minute he sold out a loyal soldier and the father of his future wife? By going to battle and not thinking about who and what he was hurting in the process and going back on his own word just to please the people and act like what some thought a way for a leader to act. I just raise the question as sometimes even a picture needs some context.

      Is... Is this from Game of Thrones?! I tried to watch that show a couple times, but all the characters w. admirable traits were killed off or tortured or something.

    I believe its about looking yourself in the eye and asking whether you would sell people that believe in you out for money and riches. The true crown of thorns being the one thats bought with the faith of others who are then called naive. If thats the general gist of the story that what does it say that he looks like Obama? Like I said it kind of does so is that good or bad or do some people just need to think in terms of literature and truth what was being actually said in that scene.

    Bushs head on a spike was in the wrong place to anyone that actually understood game of thrones by the way thats why they apologized to the true aficionados. Of course I dont come quoting scripture just making a literary reference, but I believe they soeak of strict interpretationalists somewhere in that boom as well.

    Textually speaking, "Satan" and the "Antichrist" represent two different biblical characters. To compare someone to "Satan" is different from comparing someone to the "Antichrist."
