And no doubt Federer, Spielberg, Madonna, the truly talented among the list wouldn't trade with you. If you idealism doesn't allow you to recognize and acknowledge an individual's talent due to a self serving valuation of their beliefs or ideals then you are a very sad individual.
JROOK; that is kind of harsh. Maybe he is happy in his life with the family and friends around him. He did not say they were not talented, you have to have some sort of talent to make that much money. These people have money and fame but it comes at a high price. Are their friends really their friend or do they want something, they never really know. You can't go out in public without people bothering you. I have a few friends who are local celebrities and it can a pain going with them to get a beer or get something to eat. People always come up to them and want a photo or talk to them on a topic they don't care about, even when we are in the middle of eating. Most of the time they just stay at the house and have people come over because it's just easier than going in public. And they are not world famous like the people on this list, I has to be even worse then.
My sentence "you have to have some sort of talent to make that much money" made me think of Barry and how he must be the exception to the rule. Then I remembered someone else writes his books and all his stocks are in a "blind trust", yeah right. He is heavily into green companies, last i knew. As he uses his power to get a three letter Government agency to do his bidding and inforce a carbon tax, hence doubling our electric bill. Then his green stocks skyrocket while people who's lives revolve around coal are thrown under the Øbama jobs bus... the one with all the lasers pointing the way, beep, beep.

YOU break into my house and I will use more than one shot. No shame in that. I will gladly pony up $10 for a few rounds for you, or anyone else coming into my house uninvited.
I suppose you expect your neighbor to come over to your house and protect you when he hears you and your boyfriend screaming for help.
Liberals . . .

Bra search is not legal. It goes against her (our) fourth amendment rights. This cop did not have probable cause.

Seriously, Doug? Haven’t you been paying attention all these years?
It’s call incrementalism. They know you won’t go for these plates if they are mandatory. So they take what they can get. They get you to unwittingly agree to a smaller version of what they want. Eventually, they will force it on you.
I am amazed by the people who willingly give up their liberties.
THAT’S the big deal.

How do I know this?
Look to God’s word, the Bible. It’s all in there. Ask someone knowledgeable and they can show you.
It’s not my job to convince you. Make an educated decision while choosing where you will spend eternity. You owe it to yourself. Eternity is a LONG time to be wrong whilst spending it in hell.
BTW, hell wasn’t created for humans. It was created for Satan and all who choose to follow him, wittingly or not.

Yes. He had a plan in place to send His one and only Son to die for all of creation, for God desires to be in fellowship with His Children.
He is, however, a holy God and one cannot stand in the presence of a holy God and live. Thus, believing in His Son, we become righteous in His sight. It’s really that simple. Just believe.
It’s really a wonderful gift. The problem with many is that they cannot bring themselves to do this for they are prideful, like Satan. That’s what got him (Satan) thrown out of heaven.
In the end, every knee will bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. I choose to do that of my own will and volition.
Everybody will live forever. Question is: Where will YOU spend eternity?

A funny thing happened after God created a perfect world; Man exercised his free-will given to him by God, and sinned by disobeying the only thing He told him he couldn’t do- eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Hence, the fallen world we now live in, complete with pain, tears, sorrow, poor eye sight, etc.
I’m looking forward to perfection in heaven when I get there. Till then, I’ll just have to live in a fallen world.
Deny God’s existence at your own peril. All of creation points to a Creator.
BTW, your evolution philosophy takes more faith to believe than to believe in God. You have ZERO proof of anything evolving and you totally dismiss the second law of thermodynamics in which everything is deteriorating, therefore no cell can improve or even change w/o becoming worse. That is a FACT all evolutionists fail to recognize.
I didn’t evolve form a monkey, my God made me, fearfully and wonderfully. My Savior is Jesus. I pray you find this out before it’s too late. If not, you will remember every instance in which you denied the existence of a holy God.

I have to assume that someone who forces their way into my is house there to harm me and my family.
I have a decision to make: Try to preserve the perpetrator for future rehab OR end the threat once and for all.
Having thought it through, I will apply my Texas castle law rights and take out the threat with intent to eliminate future episodes of violence against other people. That is my duty.
I have thought it through, I KNOW what I’m going to do. The problem is that the criminals HAVE NOT THOUGHT THINGS THROUGH like I have, and that’s too bad.

Please note that David had relations w/Bathsheba BEFORE he sent Uriah to the front (It is my opinion that David raped Bathsheba. If you note the character of Uriah, he is a man of great character. Men of great character typically do not marry floozies. When the King summons you, you do not say”no.” Bathsheba didn’t have much choice. Again, just my opinion).
Sending Uriah to the front was a great cover-up, much like Hillary, as you so dutifully pointed out.
The difference between David and Mrs. Bill Clinton is that one repented, the other will stick to her guns till her dying day.
See the whole story: 2 Samuel chapters 11 & 12.

If you beat their team, do they then call an audit on all the players?

Votes don’t matter, they’re in it for the $$. You know they are getting kick-backs.
They did this little trick (shorten the yellow light) in D.C. many years ago.
In California, a red-light ticket costs $425.00. No joke. (Redding, Ca.)
In Dallas, some of these tickets go for only $75. Go figure.

Only if she can prove she’s not a druggie and a harlot. That will be hard to do in that country.
Having said that, I hope she can get one of those ridiculous settlements.

Don’t they have tasers?
