Balance that checkbook or next time it’s gonna be a golden shower.

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

    If Bachmann had mentioned golden showers, yes. Since the golden shower line came from me, no- I don't repeat myself in tags. House rules.

    God seems like a chick. Rather than just coming out and saying what's bothering him/her/it, he/she/it wants you to figure it out from only vaguely related actions.

    The crux of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not settle properly with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could surely end up being fascinated.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful post. It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an really long latency time period, which means that indication of the disease might not exactly emerge right up until 30 to 50 years after the first exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, that is certainly the most common style and is affecting the area about the lungs, may cause shortness of breath, breasts pains, as well as a persistent coughing, which may bring about coughing up our blood.
