Trophy Hunters TV

UFC 104


   October 29th, 2009

Sorry about the super late blog, I’ve been doing some traveling and am actually driving back from Ohio right now and calling the blog in.

I’ve been in Ohio visiting a friend of mine, Joe Betar. He is the president of Texas Trophy Hunters Association (of which I am a life member). I met Joe on a hunt almost exactly a year ago and we’ve been good friends ever since. One of the things I like most about the hunting industry is that there is just a lot of good people out there.

Well, I didn’t see UFC 104, but I did hear that it was a super close fight between Machida and Shogun and a lot of people believe that Machida actually lost the fight. As soon as I get a chance to view it, I’m going to sit down, go through it round by round, like a judge should, and tell you what I think.

Last Sunday, I flew out to New York for a Mixed Martial Arts Expo. I met up with Boomer in New York. Boomer is one of the moderators on my forums and has become one of my good friends. He also knows how to tell a pretty good story so I’m going to let him tell you about this weekend. You would rather read it from him anyway as he pays very close attention to detail:
BOOMER TALE – BACK HOME, MATT AT MMA EXPO, I HEART NY

I got this email and I’m not sure if this was actually a sermon, but it a very interesting story and has a lot of truth in the message:

THIS SAYS IT ALL ——- A RECENT VIRGINIA CHURCH SERVICE

I would like to shake the hand of the preacher of this predominantly black church in Virginia. This guy is obviously a leader and not one of the sheep.
Perhaps we should each decide who our real leader is.

It is amazing to see that very little has changed in 4,000 years.

RECENT VIRGINIA CHURCH SERVICE – STIMULUS SERMON Gen 47:13-27

Good morning, brothers and sisters; it’s always a delight to see the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into GOD’s Word.
Turn with me in your BIBLES, if you will to the 47th chapter of Genesis, we’ll begin our reading at verse 13, and go through verse 27.

Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us?

…..(reading)…

Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray….. So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt , and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.

So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their livestock – their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey – to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through the end of that year… But the famine wasn’t over, was it?

So the next year, the people came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except their land and their own lives. “There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food, and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh.” So they surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to Pharaoh’s government, and then sold themselves into slavery to him, in return for grain. What can we learn from this, brothers and sisters?

That turning to the government instead of to GOD to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master? Yes.

But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen. And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly.” GOD provided for HIS people, just as he always has! They didn’t end up giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained possessions!

But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous one. We see the same thing happening today – the government today wants to “share the wealth “once again, to take it from us and redistribute it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years ago – as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.

What Mr. Obama’s government is doing now is no different from what Pharaoh’s government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of people like to call Mr. Obama a “Messiah,” don’t they? Is he a Messiah? A savior? Didn’t the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves, “You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh”?

Well, I tell you this – I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine; and Mr. Obama is no Messiah! No, brothers and sisters, if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh.

Bow with me in Prayer, if you will.

LORD, YOU alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on YOU, and YOU alone. We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be.

We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people of what a ruler would do, where it says “And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.” And LORD, we acknowledge that day has come. We cry out to YOU because of the ruler that we have chosen for ourselves as a Nation. LORD, we Pray for this Nation. We Pray for revival, and we Pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to seek YOU and hands to serve YOU, and protect YOUR people from the atrocities of Pharaoh’s government.

This weekend is Halloween and I always like to read about the origins of our holidays. I did some reading on the origins of Halloween (I was mainly just interested in our American customs like dressing up and “trick or treating”) and found this website pretty interesting: HalloweenHistory.org

Here’s the Bible verse for this week:

Be not afraid nor dismayed because of the great multitude, because the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:25)

Until next week. -matt

Great to hear from you…ya i saw 104 i think shogun won that fight…it wasnt close in my opinion i say 49-46 shogun


Shooter girl Says:

Matt~ Im new here but so happy that Boomer is back home! I have read his tale of New York and hes quite the story teller! Im glad you had such a good time! THANK YOU soooo much for the sermon that you shared with us! These are the things we need to hear right now. Our beautiful country is so uncertain right now and I agree that we are looking to the wrong one for a bailout! I cant wait to repost this in my facebook and share it with my non-MMA friends. Have a great Halloween weekend! Carla


John King Says:

Matt, Great to hear from you. I know you are busy with everything. I hope to hear when you are fighting soon. That was a great sermon, now I’m waiting for the non-believers or the Obama is perfect followers to get offended but it’s quite obvious that is what’s going on. Thanks for everything, good luck hunting and God Bless.


Ministry Addict Says:

It’s fairly easy to pick up on the soteriological symbolism behind the true historical events of God calling His people out of the land of Egypt and into the promised land of Canaan, as they are recorded in the Bible. In the book of Exodus God uses Moses to get his people out of Egypt. Egypt is a picture of the “world.” During the first “Passover,” the people – by the application of blood – are set free from the bondage of the world, and come out of it. This is a picture of salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. Then, God’s people pass through the Red Sea. This is a picture of baptism, God’s first step of obedience for every believer. Then comes the book of Leviticus, which is full of rules for helping God’s people stay clean in their freedom. In Exodus, God gets His people out of Egypt. In Leviticus, God gets Egypt out of His people.

In Genesis it is interesting to see how God’s people – the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – end up in Egypt in the first place. The answer lies in the adventures of Jacob’s son, Joseph. His brothers sold him into slavery, and he wound up a ruler in Egypt. Through God’s providence, he was able to relocate his family there in a time of famine, so that they would survive.

There are many metaphors for life: a contest; a war; a game; a race; a battle; a trap; a puzzle. You were probably taught in school that the first Thanksgiving occurred when the Pilgrims met the Indians. But when Joseph brought his father, Jacob, to meet the Pharaoh of Egypt, Jacob explained that he saw life as a pilgrimage. “And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.” (Genesis 47:9)

Christians truly are pilgrims in this life, for our ultimate home is not in this world. We are just passing through it on our way to our real home in Heaven. Vagabonds have no home. Fugitives are running away from home. Strangers are visiting someone else’s home. Pilgrims are on their way home. Are you living the pilgrim life today?


MMALegend Says:

Wow…i dont think Obamas that bad… that was a little racist too. come on Matt dont be ignorant. You were probably in love with Bush. Im all for God but dont bash the president because hes black…


Mike Cantrell Says:

…and there it is….if you oppose the president you’re a racist…..i can’t stand Obama because he’s a socialist who is trying to slowly but surely strip us of our rights and freedoms. Bush may not have been a peach, but this dude is a monster. Call me a racist if you want i really don’t care. I’m against Obama all the way. He’s not a savior and he’s not a good president or leader. Has nothing to do what color his face is. I’m all for a black, asian, hispanic, w/e color or ethnicity to be president as long as he defends the constitution and upholds our personal freedoms. Limited government, less taxes, and more freedom!


Carrie in Cali Says:

From what i saw Shogun won no question. LOVED watching Cain as well…that dude is so good…it has gotta be that wrestling background! It looked so effortless fighting a WEC vet. I did not read the passage because it sounds rasist and it is not about MMA or Matt. I don’t know much about religion but does Christianity allow/condone rasism?
Anyways great hearing from you Matt…even though it was so short. Safe travelling!!! Carrie.


NateR Says:

I don’t think people who can’t even spell the word “racism” are qualified to determine what is racist and what isn’t. :)

Anyways, it’s idiotic to just assume that any criticism of Obama must be racially motivated.


hayman Says:

well its good to hear from you, i read your blog all the time and only have left 1 comment before. I am a canadian, and we have this horrible thing called healthcare, its horrible it strips me of my freedom everyday, it makes me think if i get sick how am i going to pay for it, do i sell my house, if my kids get sick i will sell everything i have worked for? if my wife is hurt i will loose everything? if my parents fall ill how are we going to make it? it sickens me with worry… hold on wait thats the american system the canadian one which i pay for in my taxes has me covered, and allows me to pick my own doctors, and where i go, unless its a dire emergency, then they automatically take me to the closest hospital, you do go to our wait rooms and have to wait from anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. and from time to time they do this thing called private practice, where if i want to be the guy who pays 5000 dollar for immed service, versus waiting 20 days i can, thats right its my choice not the governments. I do not feel as if im a slave at all, and i cant be charged for not having helath care( another way to keep people poor). i dont have to worry about my family, or any one elses, it does take a community. the cons, when you do have a health care system in place it does this horrible thing like attracting foreigners with loads of wealth to invest in your country causing more to do so…. who wants people to look at your country as a place thats safe, good investment, and somewhere you can live your golden years with out being broke having to pay for healthcare. i honestly dont know why so many americans are so opposed to the idea of a universal system, it frees up alot of wealth, and worry, by the way, you still have to have insurance for prescriptions, medicine, physio, chiro, anything that wont kill you like an upset stomach, and you can buy insurance for that, or have your employers insurance cover it. but the things that are life threatenting to the smallest stich are covered, anything done in the hospital is covered, i wish that some folks would see its a great system, every system has its faults im the first to admit, but our system doesnt let you die, doesnt send you into bankruptcy, and doesnt keep you up at night. lastly no one goes to jail for not having it. i wish all people where covered and that if your family falls ill, you have the money to cover it, if not….. pray your going to need to. by the way love matt, in a non gay way as bubba the love sponge would say, ohh we only pay on average 2 percent mre than americans for this service!!!! ba da ba da ba da thats all folks!!!!!!!!


Mike Johnston Says:

MMALegend – You are a meathead. I love it how the “racist” card is played when any opposition is shown towards our President. Bottom line – the sermon/story has absolutely nothing to do with the color of skin of our President.


Mike Cantrell Says:

hayman…it’s funny that you leave out the facts….your healthcare system will eventually collapse due to lack of funding….no one is going to want to be a doctor since they cannot earn a good living….and what is the population of canada? this healthcare junk is going to cost 8 hundred billion dollars…add that to our debt that is in the trillions….we have a large population that you guys do not have…..it will collapse our economy. Try pulling your head out of your ass before making comments like that.


Mike Cantrell Says:

Here’s an article for ya hayman about your “great” healthcare system. Learn how to read and think for yourself instead of being a puppet.

HughesFan Says:

NateR, I agree it’s idiotic to think that because people don’t agree with Obama, they are racist, but it’s true. I don’t care if the man was purple with bright green polka dots, he’s ruining this great country. Want to hear something scary? I read an article the other day that said that people should stand in awe of Obama because they are being led by the most God-like being on this earth. That sends shivers down my spine. But enough about that!

Matt, I’m in the group of people that think Shogun won that fight. But as has been said thousands of times, if you leave it in the hands of the judges, you have to accept the outcome.


Robert Greer Says:

Hello Matt Hughes!

This is my second attempt to compose a comment…am a individual of complex thought and expression, a critical writer if you will. I am a book read (one I began in an orphanage) away from my own attempt. A goal I expressed at the age of thirteen, after a triple hook lure in my head experience.

I admit a regret of not having met you aside that of Spike television but there’s never a unsatisfied attempt…depending on level of desire. The victory of a battle can be achieved but the battle of a victory is eternal.

It is habit to be elaborate but natural to be decisive (for me) so….do you train, ever considered it and would you? I told my wife after viewing several fights that of all, I felt most similar to that of your demeanor. I am impressed with Pierre but the comment “outclassed” is a word of irritation. Pierre is good but so is Garth of country music and I view him (Garth) as a “corporate…favorite”.

Despite my wife’s un-supportive U.f.C. notion, I am innately interested in you opinion, input, advice and wisdom…. Personally, I respectfully envy your physical physic (we’re of same height) and agility.


John King Says:

mmalegend, it’s people like you with your small mind on race issues that keeps the people seperated. Just because we don’t all jump on the Obama band wagon does NOT mean we are racist. I don’t care if he is black or white or if you are black or white but everyone can have an opinion without being a racist so open your mind a bit.


hayman Says:

wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_Canada
its funny, you can find any arguement to support your ideals anywhere now thanks to the internet, opposing thoughts and ideals are everywhere. But should we stick to the facts as you put it, or the major components, life expectancy, and costs. go take a read mike, and guess what not from a news source trying to sell me against the idea of universal healthcare as it serve against the interests of its owners, not that fox news has ever done that….. I love that the article the one you posted did not attach the actual article from the canadian press to cross reference, so ill do that for you, and encourage you to try reading fact versus foxtion i mean fiction. see what happens when you read things, fox paraphrased a qoute, over 30 paragraghs and question and answer comments. pretty sad in my opinion. actually real sad, i thnk thats called propaghanda when news agencies try to do that to the masses to get them to see things thier way using fear and misquotes.

http://www.canadianmedicinenews.com/2009/08/new-cma-president-anne-doig-urges.html
seriuosly, if you think i am the puppet and have my head up my ass, as you so elegantly put it, wouldnt that make me the puppet master too. great now that we established that according to you i control my own thoughts, and few for that one! lets also agree that we could do this all day long, and I could, but lets consider that maybe your being mislead, by your media, and the the fox new channel, stop reading the articles they print and go to journals, youll learn something. The cost of health care is shrinking in canada thanks to health care, and rising in the us thanks to higher costs of health care let alone the px compaines who need to make thier billions off your and everyone elses backs. Regarding the doctors and not having any comment, the funny thing about brain drain its that its actually reversed since 2004, and more american doctors are coming to canada, and less leaving, we are the only country that has a net surplus in the americas. im sure you may figure out why if your research bit, i dont want to take your fun away from you. I could post all day about this as its so much fun for me to have a debate or difference of opinion on this. but i think the doctor your link reffers to says it best when she said and i quote “it really irritates me when inflammatory rhetoric is used instead of people being able to engage in debate” so thanks for the link cantrell, and as with the fight on machida and shogun, never let it go to the judges! hayman aka puppet master


Benjamin Says:

I believe that article is a poor comparison to our elected president. We still have our democracy intact and that all that matters. It was a monarchy/fascist system in ancient Egypt. I saw no racism in it though. Shogun won. Matt fight someone. You could beat Vitor. Hughes BJ 3!


Kenton R Says:

Matt,
Great article. I received that particular e-mail from an Army buddy who lives in Va. Those of you who have boldly (and irresponsibly) stated that the article is “racist” should know that the pastor in question is African American. Sort of takes that arguement right out of the saddle.
Again Matt, you just gave facts…well done, sir.
I guess I’ll have to be on the Machida side on the fight. I think that Shogun had the momentum at the end of the fight; and there is talk that Shogun landed more shots, sustained less damage…I suppose these things can be true. But in the totality of the fight I think that one can make the arguement that Machida took the first three rounds, Shogun the last two and that is likely a defendable position. Saying that, if Shogun had been declared the winner I would have felt the same way except giving Shogun either round 3 or round 2. Either way is was a close fight. I have to say the fight in it’s entirety was not very entertaining…they seemingly had very similar plans for the fight and cancelled each other out pretty well. Great fighters, not a great fight. In any event I don’t think one can make the arguement that Shogun came in and clearly beat the champ…maybe he did enough to “point” out a win…I don’t know…I’m okay with this result.

God Bless you Matt! Stay strong in the faith!

mmaschooled Says:

I think it’s ironic how as Christian believers, we choose which leaders are more religious then the others. I remember when President Bush was in office, every christian thought was chosen by God to lead our country and look where that got us? Sure people make obscene comments about the ones in power, but according to the Bible, God appoints every leader and “blesses the peace makers.” Apparently the Christian community doesn’t believe those standards apply to President Obama just because he wants he believes in creating a system that can benefit the have’s and have not’s? Makes no sense.

Matt, with all due respect, that Bible passage post doesn’t even relate to what’s going on today. You can take passages like that and make it sound like to fit your opinion even if it isn’t correct. For example, when Christ fed the multitude with only a two fish and five loads of bread I would say in support of the Health Care Bill:

“Right now may seem like it’s not the right time to create a health care program. Jesus went through the same thing when there wasn’t enough to feed the 5000. The disciplines told him that it wasn’t the right time and that it was impossible for it to work. Regardless of the doubters He created a miracle. If we stop doubting that there isn’t enough money to go around, Christ can create the same miracle using what little we have to make sure everyone has proper care for their lives no matter what their economic status. Christ commanded us to care for the poor and the needy. If we call ourselves a ‘Christian Nation’ then lets start living like one and start caring for the poor.”

It’s easy to manipulate the Word to fit our political agenda’s or ideas, but the truth is God doesn’t care about a Republican or Democrat agenda, he only cares about His. So I don’t know why we assume God is Republican.

With that being said lets do what the Bible commands us to do, “Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s” Matthew 22:21 and “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” Timothy 2:1-2.

I hope this is something we can agree on.


Army Man Says:

Hey Matt,

Glad to see your travels are going well, UFC 104 was a very very close fight, It all comes down to how the judges scored the leg kicks shogun threw to the punches Machida threw. I watched the fight very close and I scored it 48-47 Machida. Very close though, At least we had 2 fighters that had tremendous respect for the sport and no BS was thrown out there like a previous lesnar bout. Lesnar wont be fighting at the next UFC as I hoped but I do believe Carwin will have an edge on him.

Take care and Plan a trip to see the Troops in Okinawa Japan.

Army Man.

Austin Says:

I’m not going to get into politics because I’m not interested in those types of debates at all, even though I think everyone should be involved (mostly locally, because that’s what affects you the most). I will say that Obama is very polarizing and you have to give him time and really look into the issues for everything before commenting on anything. As long as you analyze the issues and can comment on them intelligently, I don’t think race plays a factor either way (for or against).

But enough about that. I don’t come here for politics, I come here to read up on what Matt is up to and his thoughts. And what’s been on my mind is what Matt thinks about Shogun-Machida.

In my mind Shogun got robbed and the fight wasn’t even close. Matt is on the very short list of people that if he told me the opposite, I would strongly think that I am probably wrong. So far I’ve seen most fighters score it for Shogun, so I’m really interested in seeing what Matt says. I also think, no matter what, the judges in MMA are really bad and don’t know what they’re doing, and it should be guys that actually do know, probably former fighters.


hayman Says:

i would like to say well said mmaschooled, well said. also, i would like to thanks matt hughes for providing us the forum and freedom to state our opinions, regardless if we see eye to eye or not. i dont like being it suggested that i dont think for myself, but its easy to slay the sheep when they provide the sword, thanks again cantrell. i dont think matt hughes belives everything from the sermon posted, rather enjoys wathcing the points of view that comes from it. i as most people here not only visit the site for the regular updates on him but have follwed his career for some time. most here have read his book, the good times and the bad, and i dont feel he is suggesting the presdent is not worthy, i remeber when he got elected matt was right on by addressing him and supporting president obama. but when you cant question your president that is a question, but the preacher in ther sermon isnt giving him a fair shake either. globally president obama has made america stronger, and thought off as more of a leading nation rather than a nation who calls the shots. america this past year has been through some seriously tough times, my heart goes out to all. i wish that all americans saw amaerica as i do, a place to better yourself, not matter the odds. i think in the next 3 years obama will make america stronger than before, and will be a great president, remember lincoln too had lots of oppostion and people thought he was too revolutionary, that cost him his life as did jfk, i dont think the ideas are as radical, or sweeping that america doesnt accept them as it was not until lincoln did it become the we the united states versus we are united states one against all odds. united america is a great nation, need i quote lady liberty! take care, last post till next blog by matt, hayman aka puppet master. may god bless all.


Alex Says:

Matt-
I would just like you to know that you are my all time favorite athlete.


Thrash Says:

Personally, as far as politics are concerned, I consider myself a moderate Republican, but I believe in a united America above anything else, so I try and promote neutrality when I can. I don’t hate Obama. I voted against him, but I don’t hate him. He has been elected as leader of this nation. Though I oppose many of his decisions, I give him all the respect that the president of the United States is due, and will continue to pray for God to guide his hand. Giving unto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s, and all that jazz. That said, I have repeatedly opposed many of his decisions. I think Health Care needs reform. I don’t believe the current plan provides what we need, however. mmaschooled, I disagree with you on several points, but I agree that God doesn’t much care for our politics. Obama isn’t a savior, but he is president, so his plan deserves some consideration whether you’re Democrat, Republican, or anything else. I just don’t think the bill is complete. The long-term effects need to be further explored. Future debt needs to be brought into consideration more than it has been so far. Personally, I will stay away from any sort of public option. I think the U.S. is, and should remain, both capitalist and individualist. Politically, I feel a public option may help if presented in the right package. I just don’t think they found the right package yet. This does not make me a racist.

Now back to what I actually came on here intending to write about. I have yet to catch 104, but I’ve heard the controversy. I’ll try and watch Machida-Shogun soon. From what I’ve read though, I think people need to remember that the fight isn’t scored on total damage, or who was in control at the end. It’s who won the most rounds. Maybe Shogun clearly won and I’m wrong. I’ll find out soon. I’ve been looking into Cain Velasquez’s carreer since the Congo fight. And I have to say, with the possible exception of Couture (hope to God I didn’t spell that wrong), he might be my favorite heavyweight. The man is a machine. I hope the winner of the Lesnar-Carwin fight is watching their back, because he could break it. I think he would stun Carwin with his ground game. I don’t think the fight would be on the feet long enough for Shane’s power to matter. As far as Lesnar goes… Cain might be the guy one in the weight class with better wrestling skills. I’m not sure how well he would contain someone that large who has a good ground game, but it would be extremely interesting; if not neccesarily entertaining, (I see a very technical ground match-up without alot a huge shots). Can’t wait to here about your next fight Matt! God blees.


John King Says:

Matt, I think if you look back at my comments up top you will see I was right on the non-believers and Obama followers. I just can’t believe everyone would write a blog bigger than yours just to try to say how to be a christian, it will take all day to read all these. Oh well, gotta love it. God Bless everyone.


Keith Says:

nothing about another opponent just politics wow.


Gordon Says:

Pharaoh was not an elected official. he was a Capitalists (which is another word for owned lots of stuff) who established a monopoly through the exercise of ruthless power, and then bled the people dry because there were none to oppose him.


Stanley Bourdamis Says:

The only people who say ‘messiah’ and ‘Obama’ in the same sentence are faux news minions. Interesting how you uber-devout ‘Christians’ are so upset over the idea of extending health care to people who cant afford it, yet you support an unnecessary war we started that has killed 100,000 Iraqi civilians. Are you really following the teachings of Jesus Christ? WWJD if he were living in the USA in 2009? Would he approve of the behavior/attitudes of these right wing ‘believers’?


NateR Says:

This is a pretty typical Liberal diversion tactic. When you can’t intelligently defend your position, then just resort to lies and slander.


r-dawg Says:

i agree that people turn to the govt instead of god. it’s sad that so many hardcore obama supporters look to him as messiah and on the other side of the coin, so many bush supporters believed him when he said he received a mandate from God! people are ridiculous…


r-dawg Says:

i think the over-dramatic debates b/w liberals and conservatives are pretty hilarious. if god gives mandates to one particular political party (as both bush and obama supporters so passionately beleive)

why then does the president’s party affiliation change every 4-8 years consistently? carter (d), reagan (r), bush (r), clinton (d), bush (r), obama (d). see the flip flopping? pretty egotistical for ppl to think god supports the candidate they personally adore when the white house’s occupant consistently changes regularly.


NateR Says:

It’s called term limits, meaning a US President can only serve a maximum of 8 years. That’s the reason that we have a different person in the Oval Office every 4-8 years.


r-dawg Says:

my post was worded wrong – i meant different *political party* not person. if one party gets a mandate from God then their political party should have no problem occupying the white house in consecutive terms. folks who place so much faith into 1 political party to the point where they think God is backing that party’s viewpoints need to reattach themselves to God instead turning a slick politician into something he/she isn’t. that applies equally for both dems and republicans.


Jerrica Willaims Says:

Hello I like Lesnar! Hope he will be winner!
