    I mean republicans say, don't ask the government for help.

    You have to do for yourself.

    Then why is everyone praying to God for help?

    WHY?

    you can only ask God for help with the supernatural
    pray to Him for guidance instead and never for money

    It's religion. It's inherently contradictory.

    TRUE STORY!! when I was 8 years old I spilled root beer on the TV in the kitchen and it stopped working. For 3 days I tried turning it on and nothing happened. That night i prayed to god to please make the TV work so my parents wouldn't yell at me. The next morning I woke up to the sound of my dad watching TV in the kitchen...I was a believer...now that i am older I realized that the soda just finally dried up and the electrical componenets could work again.

    Awesome. I just had a cigarette and watched a homeless Reggie digging through the dumpster behind my lab. Glad he took care of your TV issues :hat:
