I need to check with The Keeper of the Calendar, but I will do my best to be there.
Ms. Blackney, thank you for your courageous post. As a father of a daughter and a concealed carry permit holder who practices regularly, I would like to think that I would provide the same protection, unconditional love and absence of shame for my daughter if, God forbid, she should ever be in the same situation.
Wow, talk about strawmen! I didn't say skipsul should listen to me and not God, I merely responded to his very clear statement that he thinks he speaks for God. I disagree with him.
Also, I'm not sure why you need to bring Iran into the conversation, although it is a country where some people like to tell others how God expects them to live.
Any time someone tells me that God's Lips touch their ears, very loud and insistent alarm bells go off in my head.
Skipsul, you are not great enough to know what God is thinking. Everything I know about God tells me you should worry more about how your are living your life than how someone else lives theirs. · 25 minutes ago
When "how someone else lives their" life involves killing a third human, perhaps you should do a bit less strawman construction and a bit more addressing of the offered arguments. · Aug 26 at 9:20pm
No strawmen here, foxfier, just a simple quote (and response to) of what skipsul actually said. "Judge not, lest ye be judged." People who think they know God's Mind often find themselves surprised.
Not everyone agrees that all human life is equal. It's why I support the death penalty and why I believe that allowing abortion within the first trimester is moral and acceptable. Especially in the case of rape and incest. In my opinion, this is exactly addressing the offered arguments.

Thanks, Jerry, I'll check it out.

The invention I'd most like to see is the electrified chair that zaps me when I'm spending too much time surfing the internet.
Now we're getting to the crux of the biscuit (the apostrophe?). The OWS movement was started by Adbusters, as anti-capitalist an organization (surprise) as there ever was. They've been railing against holiday shopping for many years now. Let the hilarity ensue.
I think it's failed to resonate because most Americans see that the dichotomy of the 99% vs. the 1% is a bogus one. Too many one per centers on the left are trying to pass themselves off as part of the 99%. Who is more part of the 99% than cops trying to do their job, or average people trying to get to and from work on streets shut down by protesters?
