“I'm not all that aware of TO has or hasn't done. But he is a fellow human being. So I feel sorry for him. Obviously he needed has butt spanked and occasionally kicked by his parents when he was growing up. I think it's a crime that we create these superstars in any sport then send them into the world without any idea how to handle superstardom. I guess managers are supposed to do that but they suck. They need life coaches with patental authority like when the "superstar" was 15 or so. Just sayin.............”
“I have the answer to avoiding all this garbage being found in your food. After all I am retired and know everything......right???
First of all grow your own food. Of course most can't grow their own meats. Find someone you trust to raise your beef, chicken, pork, fish, etc. for you and some friends. Remember Co-ops?? They work!!
Second. Prepare your food yourself. This is extremely important. You know what you're putting in your body. If you don't then you shouldn't be surprised when you get one of the many odd and deadly diseases out there.
Third. Dispose of your wastes responsibly. I don't mean have your own sewage system but your table scraps, etc. should be recycled.......by you. Remember composting??
We've done this for years. Can't prove it but we think our family feels better and has fewer health problems. And guess what. It's cheaper.”
“Some time ago an idiot planted, on purpose, lake trout in Yellowstone Lake in the park. These fish began eating the indigenous west slope cut throat trout that are native to that area. It got so bad a person couldn't catch a cut throat. So they killed the lake. Totally. Then restocked it with what was there in the first place.
Then they found the guy and "stored" 100 eagle claw fish hooks on his most tender part. Guess he won't do that again.
Or at least that's what should happen.”
“I'd like to say this about that. Ho Hum. Child porn has been around since recorded history. It's been a part of every civilization known to mankind. I'm not saying it's right. Just saying there are better ways to deal with it. First and foremost is education.
So find a way to be a part of the prevention than trying to cure something that just can't be without PREVENTION.”

“I don't know how old you are but for as long as I can remember it is always said what we need is education to stop the problem. Well education is a great thing but it has yet to stop any problem. Most of the problems are never going away. But if you don't make the penilty harsh enough the purpertrators will never stop. If you are abusing children or selling drugs to children there should be amandatory sentence of 25 years. No chance of parole. If you are convected of sex abuse on a child under thirteen you should be castrated.”
“You can bet with O'Bummer in office that Mt. Rushmore will be souix land in no time at all. This person has done more harm to America than all other Presidents combined.
What really irritates me is when he's voted out we have to pay this jerk a retirement pension for the rest of his life. And let me tell you....it's not small. Sheesh.”

“Last we forget the harm caused under 8 years of a Bush presidency. How soon we forget how we got where we are. And no we should not give Mt Rushmore to the Native American people. They need to live in the 21st century and get over the past, there were wrongs on both sides.”

“I'd much rather he get his retirement pay, it's cheaper then letting him loose in the White House another 4 years.”
“OMG!!! That idiot with the facial expressions and his death grip on the guitar like it's a security blanket are not going to make it in the real world. Facial expressions aside maybe he can finally get rid of his constipation. I'm confident that Skylar will get a big recording contract and do well. She's a natural. Good luck woman.”
“Hey Rick. Who died and made you the ultimate expert on prayer? Of course you know what an expert is. Ex is a has been. And a spurt is a drop of water under pressure. With that said I will say this about what you wrote. Each and every person has their own personal concept or perception of God or their Creator. No mortal man can tell them if their prayers will be answered based upon if they have accepted Christ. God does not work that way. Remember grace?? Christ does not work that way. Remember his open arms with no qualifications to enter?
I have a very close personal relatioinship with my Creator. I have had prayer answered very obviously. That's all I need to know. That's all I have to say.
Take care and God bless.”
“God does not make things happen. God gave us freedom of choice. What has that to do with little children getting terminal cancer? Or with me getting terminal cancer (65 yr. old male)? I want you to read a book. I read it. Many times. It gives us the chance to answer lots of questions like this. It is "The Shack" by Wm. Paul Young. I don't know if it will change your life or answer your questions. It changed my life and let me answer questions. Good luck. Take care and God bless.”

“I read that book and it was very good. I feel sad that there so many unbelievers that speak out than the believers. Sad Sad Please unbelievers don't waste a reply. I am not changeing and I am just expressing my opinion.”
swiminem on May 1, 2012 at 19:04:57
“No joke, God does not make anything happen. I can see your point with the choice, but my issue is the outcome! Every day an innocent child dies from cancer despite prayer AND treatment. What does freedom of choice have to do with dying of cancer? Of course no one chooses that. So is it simply nature? Which, if it is, then there is no God in control to answer prayers.”
“I do believe the loved ones of a dead Christian firefighter would want whatever is there and has been there for nearly a century to be left alone. Live and let live.”
MrPogle23 on Apr 30, 2012 at 12:04:40
“Maybe. But this does not in any way address my questions which were:
“And what if some of those "very brave men and women" did not believe in the Christian god or any other god? Would the loved ones of a dead Christian fire fighter want a memorial to them with just a Muslim symbol or a Sikh symbol to name just two?””
“HELLO. It is not an idol. It is a memorial to some very brave men and women. When was the last time you did anything brave enough to have a memorial constructed to you? I thought not.....as in never.”

“Sure... Ignore the point, and argue semantics.
Why do conservatives only argue with emotion, and never logic, or reason?”
“News flash soapboxking. It won't hurt. It does hurt when God is forceably removed from people's lives. Remember Nazi Germany?? And I have a little problem with your post in that I've never seen anybody be forced to pray. In the morning or otherwise.”
SoapboxKing on Apr 26, 2012 at 19:59:51
“No, you have not seen people forced to pray in the morning or otherwise. Others, before you have put a stop to it. There was a time when the school official, usually the principle, lead this prayer, and often read it over the PA and forced all to participate.
Btw, during Nazi Germany, German Schools had forced daily prayers.”
“Dear God......please take all the violence out of our schools......please, please, please. In answer.....I'm not allowed in your school. Sorry.
Dear God......please remove all the crime from our lovely city. It's just not safe out there anymore. In answer.......sorry.....I'm not allowed on the streets of your city anymore.
Dear God.....what can we do? Put me back in your schools and on the streets of your city. And into your families. It'll work. It has for more than two thousand years.”
Danmcc455 on Apr 26, 2012 at 19:33:41
“Yeah, because it was so safe on the streets of a medieval city. Crime is a completely new invention of the last, oh, 40 years.
You realize that as time has gone along and religion has declined violence and crime has actually decreased? As a matter of fact, the more atheistic/secular nations have lower crime rates and general violence.”

“I thought you might enjoy this.
A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been
going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long,
So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he
was, walking slowly up to the holy site.
She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to
leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an
"Pardon me, sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. What's your name?
"Morris Feinberg," he replied.
"Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?"
"For about 60 years."
"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"
"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims."
"I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop."
"I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults
and to love their fellow man."
"I pray that politicians tell us the truth and put the interests of the
people ahead of their own interests."
“Tiger Woods has more class under his little finger nail than you and most other people have in their entire bodies.
The guy showed some emotion. Disappointment in himself. And he was upset because of his high expectations of himself. Knows he can do better. Leave the man alone!!! Let him do what he loves most....play golf.
IMHO he's right up there with most other famous sports icons........where it concerns his professional life.”
