    The Fifth Ward is the Harlem and Watts area of Houston.

    Alcoholism is not a disease. Diseases have to do with pathogens. Alcoholism is a psychological condition. Calling alcoholism a disease is a cop out use to deflect the personal irresponsibility of a person who has become an alcoholic through excessive drinking. I don’t mean to make light of such a psychological condition, for some people do become addicted to alcohol, through lack of self control. But to call alcoholism a disease is not correct.

    This kind of revelation as to what liberals and democrats are thinking should be a stern wake up call to all conservatives, fundamental Christians, conservative Catholics, and Tea Party members to immediately and sufficiently arm themselves. This is the same kind of rhetoric that was going around in the 30′s during the Nazi Germany build up. If a citizenry is sufficiently armed, there will not be enough flak jacketed cops to overcome them.

    I am guessing at this, but I worked in the trucking industry for about twenty years, three with a transport (tanker) company. What it looks like happened is that there is a truck/tanker out of view on the other side of the wall behind the station that was unloading into the station’s underground tanks. There are also fill openings to the same tanks that can be used in the front of the station and the driver failed to watch or see that the tank he was filling was full, therefore the front fill ports blew open with the overflow, pouring out gasoline in the front of the station. The massive explosion was actually the tanker exploding.

    Having lived on the street for a year and a half in 1980, hiding from my hateful X-family and relatives who were trying to do me a great evil, I know what people in that shape need. For one thing, many need to be in an institution because they are psychotic. But as far as personal needs, they need strong soled lace boots that don’t wear out after a month of walking from soup kitchen to soup kitchen. They need a large lockblade knife in a belt sheath if they are not obviously psychotic. There is nothing that keeps hostile street bullies from even thinking about harassing you when they see and know that your are carrying the means to cut their throat if they come at you in harms way. A small backpack is nice for them to be able to carry their belonging in if they don’t have anything. Include a small chain and lock so that they can chain it down while sleeping. Basic toiletries are helpful, razors, toothpaste and brush, fingernail clippers, comb. A durable coat is good during winter. Other clothes are not necessary because missions usually have an abundance. If they are not an obvious drug addict, 10 bucks can go a long way. Above all, however, the knife will be the best gift. All threats toward me stopped once I was able to afford one. I carried that knife on my belt for the next 25 years, until I got my CHL. I still carry it when I go to 2nd Amendment non-compliant states.

    Private industry isn’t stupid enough to pour millions of dollars down a Mars black hole. There is absolutely no reason for such an expensive waste of money. But there is always the ubiquitous, godless excuse from scientist that it will help them solve the mystery of the origin of man. The origin of man is God, but the self blinded scientists continue to embrace the theory of evolution, they claim to be as unquestionable fact as phony as global warming. God has prepared a globally subterranean hot place for them however, and that place is hell.

    If Obama had a son, he would be just like Dominik.

    I don’t know what it was he boiled, but it wasn’t Coca Cola. The bottle wasn’t even right. Secondly, this was a Russian soda pop. So what do you expect to see from Russia?

    If you like having access to thousands of excellent freeware programs, go with a PC. If you like having access to hundreds of excellent freeware programs, go with Linux. If you like to having to pay for almost all your software, go with Apple.

    “Marxist Obama Slips into Afghanistan and disgraces our troops with a Memorial Day Visit”

    This scare mongering doesn’t put us Texans in any fear at all. We have a strong heritage and are not lightly put in fear by Mexican or any other criminals. We stand up and ready ourselves for any such threats as this. The cartel doesn’t have a chance. The only problem we might encounter is Obama sending his bleeding heart federal police and bureaucrats to attempt to protect the cartel from us. I am sure that after a fire fight that was started by the cartel that Obama will send in investigators to try to find out who stood up to them. The key to protecting yourself from such federal bullies is to continuously exercise your right to remain silent.

    I can assure you of one thing. If the salvation army had found it, they wouldn’t have returned it.
    Someone in the recent past went rummaging through a salvation army store and found a picture for sale which he bought for $10. He then turned around and sold the masterpiece for $1,000,000. The salvation army found out about it a sued him to get the picture back (before his $1m sale). Fortunately, they lost. The salvation army is not about spreading the gospel, but like the red cross, it’s about making money to further build their empire.

    This is a non story. Gas and other pipelines are inspected continuously by the pipeline companies themselves. This is why you rarely hear of a pipeline explosion. I worked in the natural gas pipeline industry for several years. There is continuous up keep, safety, and inspection going on continuously. I never saw one single government inspector anywhere. They are not needed. This industry has a good safety record and like the refinery industry, doesn’t need inspectors. The article is a hype that was written to make people thing that this is just another huge problem in this country that the government needs to fix.

    The very last thing blacks need as their representative is the New Black Panther Party. Blacks will isolate themselves from 99% of all whites.

    We have some ants in Houston (over 200 species of ants around the Houston area) that could run incredibly fast. It might even out run a cheetah. Probably not as fast as this mite.

    My vision is good, but I have to wear low power reading glasses to read. Something I found that they did mention is that if you poke a very small pin hole in a piece of paper and look at some print up close that you would not be able to read without glasses, the hole works to clear the print up so you can read it. So it works the opposite way also. I use to be near sighted until I received plastic lens. I use to be able to pass my driver’s license sight test by squinting hard while reading the print. One time the examiner asked my if I was squinting. I lied. Now I know what was going on.

    Listen folks, I was on the street when the economy collapsed in 1980. My former family and relatives hated me because of my Christian commitment, so I didn’t have any place to go but the street. My point is, having been out there for 1.5 years, I know what is out there. Most people on the street are alcoholics or drug addicts. The rest are made up of x-cons who got out of prison and don’t have anywhere to go, or those who are insane to some degree. People who get on this emotional binge about streeter don’t know what they are dealing with. Some of these people actually like living in the street, living off handout, collecting can, welfare checks, etc. There was one fellow who tried to talk me into joining him in that lifestyle. Streeters are not people who you really want to get to know. Some have murdered, some have raped, many are violent, many have stolen much. Most people who are on the street get off of it by themselves. There were only a few on the street when I was out there who were like me, actually down and out, but human and sane also. Do yourself a favor and don’t be taken in by these bleeding hearts trying to lure your sympathies into thinking of streeters as fathers, uncles, and mothers. You may pay for it with some kind of loss, even possibly with your life, in the end.

    I was going to make a comment, but the Blaze site is bogging down so badly now, taking around a minute to login, get to the comment box, and receive a reply, that I left.

    This criminal, godless bstd, by citizenship as well as by birth, would presume to force himself upon people celebrating Easter. He has no shame, much less a soul. People need to spit at the very mention of his name.

    This is the problem with such debates. A simple rebuke of Bill Nye from a distance is all that is necessary. God gave instructions to believers concerning this sort of thing:
    Ps 26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

    Anyone who has truly committed his life to God in accordance with Romans 12: 1, 2 will discover this verse and avoid such contentious people and situations. The devil will continually grind on Ken Ham with this and there will be no respite or victory over Nye, the devil’s servant. Bill Nye will eventually know that he is wrong and suffer eternally for it. Extremely hot, constant craving for water, and eventually being placed into a lake of fire.
    Nye’s most dangerous theme is that Christianity is endangering man because it hampers scientific development. If the government ever begins to suppress Christians for this or any other reason, it will be time for us to take up arms against such oppression.
